tarte for true blood









As a huge fan of the True Blood series on HBO I checked this palette out online as soon as it was released. I wasn't that impressed by the colors when I saw them on my computer screen and had very little experience with Tarte products. I'd only ever used Tarte's EmphasEYES Amazonian clay waterproof clay eyeliner in three colors, and loved them all, but they completely dried out before I could put a dent in any of the pots which was a total bummer and waste of money at $22 a pop.

This palette stayed in the back of my mind and I finally got a chance to see it in person a couple of weeks ago and was instantly sold. The packaging has a ton of personality and the colors inside are gorgeous. The spectrum is covered with both neutrals and bold colors and mattes and shimmers, so the possibilities are endless. It retails for $52 and includes 17 - 0.07oz eyeshadows, and EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner in black, Lights Camera Lashes! Mascara in black and a Lifted Natural Eye Primer. 

The colors in the palette are as follows (descriptions per Sephora.com):

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 (sparking warm rose)
The True Death (sparkling silver)
Immortal (sparkling midnight black)
Moss (shimmering forest green)
Legend (deep matte black)
V (sparkling crimson)
