Palette of the Week: Tarte for True Blood

I love the True Blood series, I’ve read all the books and watched the TV show on HBO since it started. I’ve only had two Tarte eye shadow palettes in the past and I loved the texture and payoff of the shadows. So I wanted this palette as soon as I saw it but waited months to get it. I shouldn’t have waited, this is one of the best all-purpose palettes that I’ve seen this year. I like it better than the latest Book of Shadows from Urban Decay.

Here are some pictures of the palette in case you haven’t seen it up close yet.

Color descriptions from the website:

The Light (shimmering warm ivory), Fairy (shimmering pink), Dusk (matte warm taupe), Dawn (shimmering gold dust), Werewolf (matte chocolate), Waitress (sparkling pink champagne), Nocturnal (sparkling deep indigo), Charmer (sparkling burnt copper), Glamour Me (sparkling deep plum), Stake (matte steel), Bayou (shimmering golden tan), Telepath (sparkling warm rose), The True Death (sparkling silver), Immortal (sparkling midnight black), Moss (shimmering forest green), Legend (deep matte black), “V” (sparkling crimson)

Some goodies are included in the bottom drawer under the eye colors. You get an EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner that is the deepest black, I love it. It’s so creamy and a beautiful deep black shade that goes on like butter. You also get a small Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara and Lifted which is an eye primer. I really liked having the chance to check out these three products. I found them to be the ultimate bonus for a great collectors palette.

This is a fantastic buy, its $52 which is pricey but if you’re looking for an all-purpose palette I can’t think of anything this good since the Naked Palette from Urban Decay. I could use this every day for weeks and never get tired of it.

This is available at Sephora. If you are a VIB (beauty insider card) you have another chance to get 20% off your Sephora must haves this month between November 10th-14th. The discount code VIBDREAM is supposed to be good in store and online. I found out about the details on Temptalia, she has a post about the whole thing so mark your calendar! I plan to get some perfume this time around.

    I have been leeming for this since it came out. Beautiful. I’m trying to decide if I should get this or the UD Naked Palette for the Sephora VIB sale coming up.
