- The highlighter shade is Champagne, which is a golden/white shade. It was a bit powdery, but was surprisingly light enough to show up even on my pale pale skin.
- Unleashed is a dusty pink with some cool purple undertones. This was a bit powdery as well but had excellent pigmentation when applied to cheeks.
- Park Ave Princess #2 excited me because it is cooler toned and a bit lighter than the original, making it a great contour for my skin tone. Please be aware of how light these colors are if you plan to purchase.
- Bare To Explore is a matte light pink/purple shade. It swatched a bit powdery but makes a great base shade on eyes as well as a blending shade.
- Make A Mauve was the most disappointing in the palette. It is a cool medium purple and makes a good blending shade but only has so-so pigmentation.
- Plum Away With Me is gorgeous and creamy to use and blend. I love the reddish tone to the plum color.
- Up To No-Gold is easily my favorite shade in this palette. It is fairly dupeable, but the texture of this is as good as any Urban Decay shadow I have. I have been wearing this as an all-over color and getting heaps of compliments.
- Tan-Gled Up In You is a matte light brown. It is actually great for my brows in a pinch and a good blending color. Not the most exciting, though.
- Don't Turn A-Brown is a matte dark brown and is an excellent crease color with good opacity.
Here is Up To No-Gold all over my eye with a bit of Don't Turn A-Brown in the crease. This look wore completely perfect for 11 hours until I took it off, with primer.
Overall, I am happy with this palette because I got it 20% off. I wouldn't pay full price for this, simply because the color offerings aren't anything new. However, I do like the looks they can create and how everything is in one palette. It makes contouring and highlighting a snap, and I don't have many purples in my arsenal.
The pigmentation and lasting power is about what I expect from Tarte, so I am happy with this, but if you can, wait for a Sephora, Ulta, or Tarte sale!
