Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Palette

Leave a Comment
From drugstore to the highest of the high end, it seems like more and more brands are cashing in on the appeal of limited edition products. I may be wrong, but I blame MAC and their millions of limited edition collections for starting this trend that gets us beauty junkies to buy even more makeup. 

Tarte does lots of different limited edition eyeshadow palettes. I've been really impressed with this brand in general ever since they came out with their Amazonian clay products. I have the Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights palette. This is a limited edition palette that was part of Tarte's summer collection, but it is still available at Dermstore.

The Golden Days & Sultry Nights palette contains five Amazonian clay eyeshadows in the colors Toes in the Sand (matte ivory), Espadrilles (matte taupe), Caparinha Cocktails (gold), Oceanview (jade), and Tropical Sunset (bronze). There are two matte shades and three shimmer shades in this palette. 

I'm really impressed with the quality of the matte shades. They're very creamy and pigmented. Espadrilles (matte taupe) is the perfect shade to blend into the crease, and Toes in the Sand is a great matte highlight shade. The shimmery shades are nice too, but they are all quite different in texture and consistency. Caparinha Cocktails (gold) was the shade I was most excited to see in this palette, but it was the trickiest to apply. First, I used a flat eyeshadow brush to apply it over my typical eyeshadow primer -- Too Faced Shadow Insurance. There was so much fallout with this glittery eyeshadow that I looked like I had been glitter bombed. Then, I tried applying the shade wet. This was a little better, but I still had some fallout. Last, I applied this shade of the Too Faced Glitter Glue. I had the most success with the glitter glue, but even then, there was some fallout happening. I love sparkly gold eyeshadows, but fallout seems to be common with all of them. Oceanview is described as a jade color, but it seems more turquoise to me. I wish it was a little more pigmented, but it's quite wearable to not be a neutral. Tropical Sunset is the star of this palette. It's incredibly pigmented and swatches and applies like a dream!

Here are a couple of looks using this palette.
