My favourite beauty box without a doubt is the Look Incredible Deluxe Beauty Box as it always contains four to five full size highend products, and I’m yet to be disappointed by any of their boxes. Look Incredible always feature amazing brands, and one of the brands which are featured quite regularly is Tarte and I’m always happy to see their products as they’re one of my favourite brands. The Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight and Contour Palette featured in the November box which I couldn’t believe as the palette is £19 alone, as there were four other products all for £35.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight and Contour Palette
“Inspired by makeup artist techniques, this portable highlight & contour palette helps you glow on-the-go using healthy ingredients. Designed to work on every skin tone, the three exclusive shades have rich, cool undertones to mimic real shadow & light reflection for the most natural look.
Two intense highlighting powders deliver a buildable, microshimmer strobe, & the universal matte contouring powder adds balanced dimension powered by longwearing Amazonian clay for fade-free payoff.”
The Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight and Contour Palette has cardboard packaging with a rubberised texture, and a mirror inside the lid. Even though the packaging is cardboard, it feels pretty luxe with gold foil detailing on the lid and gold foil insert holding the powders. I am a massive fan of the Tarte Blush formula but I’ve never tried their powder highlighters or bronzers so I couldn’t wait to try this palette, and the powders smell amazing with the signature Tarte chocolate scent they use for a lot of their powder products.
Inside the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight and Contour Palette, there is Gleam which is described as being a pearl highlight, Burst which is a shimmering sand highlight and lastly Chisel which is a matte contour.
I really like that Tarte chose a more intense, shimmery highlighter shade with Gleam, and then Burst is a more subtle, and more of a natural glow highlighter and you can obviously use them individually or blend them together. These swatches are quite intense, but they obviously don’t apply this intensely when applying with a light hand a fluffy fan brush.
Chisel is a little warm than I liked as it’s a deep, warm toned brown matte shade which in my opinion is more of a bronzer than a contour but I know some people prefer using warmer toned contour shades. It’s a really great shade on the eyes, as do the highlights so you could easily take this palette away with you and use the shades as eyeshadows as well as contour and highlights.
I think £19 is actually a fantastic price for three decent sized powders (they’re each 2.3g), especially when they’re this high quality with the most perfect, creamy, smooth and blendable formula that lasts on the skin.
Have you tried any of the Tarte highlighters or contour powders before?
