I have become such a massive Tarte fan ever since I tried their products for the first time when they launched on QVC UK. You can purchase Tarte products via Sephora’s website but the shipping/tax fees are quite pricey so I was thrilled when QVC announced that they’d launched the brand and I always like to check their website for new additions. The Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette is one of my favourite palettes so when I noticed QVC had started selling the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette £42.50 I knew I had to purchase it as it looked like such a stunning palette but different enough from the first palette to warrant a purchase.
The Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette is £36 to purchase from the US Tarte website but the shipping fees are £14.28 and the customs fees are £9.92 making the palette £60.20. So to be able to purchase the palette from QVC for £42.50 is amazing value especially as it comes with a beautiful dual-ended eyeshadow brush.
The Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette is packaged within a gold, metallic plastic palette with a pink and purple petal design on the lid which is super pretty and there’s a large mirror within the lid.
The original Tartelette palette contains twelve all matte shadows but the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette contains nine matte shades and three shimmers which are slightly warmer in tone but just like the original Tartelette palette, the shadows are all infused with Tarte’s signature Amazonian Clay formula designed to offer pigmented payoff, blendability, and lasting colour without parabens or phthalates.

All of the shade name descriptions I’ve given above are the descriptions which Tarte use and I feel that a few of them are a little off but it’s still a very beautiful palette regardless. Every single shade in the palette is buttery soft, easy to blend and longlasting with incredibly pigmentation with or without an eyeshadow primer.
I didn’t think the original Tarte Tartelette Palette could be beaten as it’s such an high quality palette but I honestly think this palette is even better than the original. The shades aren’t particularly unique as far as neutral shadow palettes go but you can create a multitude of looks with this one palette especially with the three shimmer shades and I’m yet to create an eyeshadow look I don’t like and I just bought the Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette from QVC too as I love both the Tartelette palettes so much.
