Hey Brown Girl!
Today we are reviewing the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself palette. If your into the whole unicorn trend 🦄 , then you will definitely love this new palette from Tarte. The packaging definitely adds to the unicorn theme with the blue, pink, and purple color scheme accented with gold.
This palette retails for $40 and comes with 10 eye shadow shades. Now lets get to swatching!
Pictured above are six of the 10 eye shadow shades included in the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Palette. The colors include: Pixi, Crystal, Dream, Mystic, and Fairy. Below, are additional swatches of these colors (minus Fairy). In the second image the swatches pictured are: Magic, Wings, Marvel, Trance, Fairy, and Mystic
Can I be real for a second? The first time I saw this palette I thought, "This isn't for brown girls." I am not the only one who felt this way either. I saw this palette in quite a few Anti-hauls on YouTube. No lie, this palette looks like it's made for the fair toned beauties out there. But Aye! I'm not tripping off the lack of brown girl friendliness in this palette. I decided to get the make believe in yourself palette for the three following reasons:
- a variety of shimmers in summer ready colors
- build-able colors with decent pigmentation
Trending now is pops of color along the waterline. When looking at these colors, I really thought they would be perfect for using in the waterline for summer looks. At the price point, it's four dollars per shadow. I figured this would get the job done. Plus, the packaging really lured me into buying. I love the quality of Tarte palettes.
I haven't had a chance to create any makeup looks with this palette yet, but I plan to soon. Of course I will share it with you pretty brown girls! Until then, keep slaying girl! I'll catch you in the next post.
