My Thoughts on the Tarte - Be you. Naturally. Eyeshadow palette

Time to let you know my thoughts on the Tarte Be. you. Naturally. Eyeshadow palette that I received in my June 2019 ‘Getaway’ Boxy Charm.

Here is what the Tarte website has to say about the Be. You. Naturally. Eyeshadow palette - Always let your natural beauty shine with this 8-shade shimmer & matte eyeshadow palette packed with all the necessary neutrals! 4 shimmer shades & 4 matte shades in frosty cool & rich warm tones. Super bendable formula applies easily with fingers or brush. Powered by Amazonian clay for pigmented color that lasts.

Another round palette from Tarte. I am not the biggest fan of the round palette shape, it just doesn’t store well at all for me! Besides that the shade names are on the back instead of inside with the shadows, not a huge fan of that either. But that is where the negatives end for me. I can’t find this palette on the Sephora site, but I did happen to find on, it retails for $47.00 CAD there, the same price as similar Tarte Palettes.

The shades included are-Sunbeam(s), Explore (m), Dusk (m), Earthy (s), Tropical (s), Crystallized (m), Glacier (s), and Daybreak (m). All the shades applied beautifully with a brush or fingers except 1, Glacier. The day I wore Glacier on my lid I had glitter down my face all day, it seemed that everytime I went into the bathroom, I was wiping away glitter. Glacier also felt drier, almost gritty, in the pan when I swatched it. Both Dusk and Crystallized worked well to blend out Daybreak, which I used in the crease. Explore was great for both darkening the out corner as well as a liner shade for me, on a somewhat fluffy blending brush it blended great in the outer corner. All of the shimmer shades, except Glacier, were great lid shades for me and looked great with the other mattes used in the crease.

Surprisingly, this palette did have a scent to it, unlike other round palettes I have from Tarte. This one has a faint sweet, almost chocolate scent. It is barely there, you have to hold the palette pretty closet your nose to smell and the scent does not stick around at all. Just thought I should mention that this one has a scent incase you are sensitive to scents.

As you may be able to tell, the Tarte-Be. You. Naturally. Eyeshadow palette is a great everyday palette for me. I can easily create a variety of looks that are perfect for an office setting without having to bring in any other shades, just using the one palette. I think if you are a neutral loving eyeshadow wearer like me, you could do a lot worse than this palette. I am very happy to have received this palette in a monthly subsricption box and can see me using it quite frequently.

Have you tried out any great neutral palettes lately, let me know!
