Tarte “Gorgeous Getaways” Palette Review

Hi Makeup Geeks!

I’m continuing my reviews of all the major makeup companies’ holiday palettes! I know, I know- it’s a tough job reviewing and trying out makeup palettes 😉  Today’s review is for the Tarte Gorgeous Getaways palette.  Hopefully this helps you decide which palettes to buy and which ones to pass!

Tarte Palette 01

The Packaging

I love the overall concept behind this. It comes in a standard cardboard box with 2 tiers inside. The first tier contains 4 separate quads. Each quad contains 4 eyeshadows and a blush for a total of 16 full size eyeshadows and 4 full size blushes. The palette opens up to a large mirror on the inside and YES the top of the palette remains open so you can use it to apply your makeup with ease. The bottom tier holds a gold compact and 3 full size lipglosses. Each quad can be easily removed and placed into the compact which makes it ideal to drop in your purse or makeup bag to take on the go. The size of the entire palette is somewhat bulky but that is to be expected with this much product.

As always, the quality of Tarte’s products are amazing.  They are not only pigmented, but also blend easily and have great staying power.  Tarte did a wonderful job combining both matte and shimmer finishes so you can do a multitude of looks with this. There aren’t any over the top vibrant shades in here, instead Tarte combined much more wearable and everyday colors that will look great on everyone. As for the blushes, they are very pigmented and blend into the skin very easily. I’ve ALWAYS loved Tarte’s blushes.  The lip glosses are also pigmented, but are just slightly tacky.
