I was trying to be good and not buy new makeup this month, but when Sephora sent me a coupon offering $20 off a purchase of $50 or more, I couldn’t resist. I had my eye on the Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette since before it came out, so I figured now would be the perfect time to get it.
This palette comes with six gorgeous powders. A matte highlighter, a yellow correcting powder, a soft contour powder for light-medium complexions, a deep contour powder for medium-dark complexions, a rosy blush, and shimmery highlighter.
The palette is numbered and comes with detailed instructions on where to put each powder, making this a great palette for beginners. I really like Tarte powders, and the quality of these ones are so nice. They blend so nicely. They’re not as pigmented as some other brands I’ve used, but because I am so pale I like this quality about them. If you have a darker skin tone this may not work as well for you.
It comes in really nice packaging that feels really sturdy. It also comes with a nice size mirror which I really like. I also really appreciate that Tarte included a blush in this palette. I love their blushes and they are rare to find in contour palette, which would make this ideal for traveling.
All of the powders are paraben and phthalate free too. Though I have only had this palette a few weeks, I can safely say that I really like it. At this time it is only available to Sephora VIB and VIB Rouge members, though anyone can buy it on the Tarte website.
