I recently reviewed the Tarte Leave Your Mark Palette (here) which I really liked. I have been recently testing out another of their limited edition palettes and thought I would share my thoughts on that one with you too. The Tarte Sex Kitten palette * is another really nice release from Tarte.
This palette is really nice when it comes to creating looks for a night out. There is a good range of classic neutrals as well as some smoky shadows. You are still able to create daytime appropriate looks using this palette too, but it has been a go-to of mine for nights out.
It has a compact design and a mirror, so it’s perfect for traveling, or packing in your makeup bag to get ready at a friend’s house.
Inside you get 7 eye shadows and 1 highlighter, just like the Leave Your Mark Palette. The shades include: Rawr (bone), Sly (ivory), Paw (taupe), Feline (shimmering slate), Cunning (nude mauve), Prowl (deep navy), Wildcat (smoky brown), and Secret (a pearl highlight). The top two shades aren’t very noticeable on my skin tone, but they make beautiful highlights!
As usual, these shadows are formulated with vanilla extract. This is really nice because vanilla extract is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties. The palette smells lovely, and the mix of mattes and shimmers is really nice.
The shadows are all very pigmented. They are really buttery though and blend out beautifully. This palette certainly lives up to what I would expect from Tarte; and this would make a lovely addition to any makeup collection.
If you’re in need of a smoky eye palette, this one is a really great option. I don’t exactly love the name, but there is no denying how lovely the palette itself is. It’s super cute, the shades compliment each other perfectly, and the quality is incredible.
