I'm in LOVE...

I walked into Sephora Saturday and absolutely fell in love with this palette...

she's so freaken beautiful!! I walked around Sephora, with this palette in my hand, for 30 minutes contemplating whether I was going to get it or not. Only problem is it's over fifty bucks. I've never spent fifty bucks on one single makeup item before. But this wasn't just any ole palette. It was a Tarte Palette, loaded with 16 shimmer shadows, 16 matte shadows, 16 lip glosses, a bronzing and illuminating powder,and 4 blushes!! All for only fifty bucks?!! At this point, I was like.."I have to get it. I'd be an idiot if I didn't"

*sigh*.. I honestly am in love with this package. All the colors are so vibrant and so beautiful. It sits quite beautifully on top of my makeup desk and every time I walk pass it, I find myself turning around, grabbing it, opening it, and admiring it (at least 3 times everyday so far..haha). I totally recommend this palette. Paying 52 bucks for something that is really worth over 600 bucks is sooooo worth it.

Along with this, I also bought two of Benefits creaseless cream shadows. They came together in a cute lil baggie for only 10 dollars, so it was definitely a must buy. I haven't used these yet but have heard good reviews on them.

Anyways..let's get started with the swatches.

The 16 Shimmer Eyeshadows..

The 16 Matte Eyeshadows..

The Lip Glosses..

The Blushes

These are actual Tarte size eyeshadows. So it's not like you're getting a sample of everything, you're actually getting it in it's full-size. Quantity, plus Quality? This is an A ++ buy.

Here are the creaseless cream shadows..

Honey bunny (pinkish) and Recess (light beige-y/ivory)

Awww, thank you for passing the award onto me :)
Love the Tarte palette - I love how there's matte shadows and shimmery shadows separated in the same palette! Great swatches as well and that's nice of you to note that it's full sized eye shadows - I honestly wouldn't have guessed it myself.
And you look fab in your photo!

Oh, I would fall in love with this palette too if I saw it in my Sephora! 52 bucks is reasonable seeing how many different shades you get. :)

Awww you are so pretty!
I have this palette too, its pretty good, I switch it up with my UD Book of Shadows VOL II! I like the tarte treasure chest becuase its got so many matte shadows, which is a nice change of pace.
