I am a bit hit and miss when it comes to Tarte eyeshadow palettes - a lot of the colours seem very neutral and samey, but when I saw the Tarte x Aspyn Ovard Eye & Cheek Palette, I ordered it straight away. I am not going to pretend I know who Aspyn Ovard is, I had to read on the back of the packaging that she is a You Tuber, and I am in no means being rude, but I don’t spend a lot of time watching You Tube and so a lot of their big stars unfortunately pass me by.
Anywho, on to the palette itself! What a beauty it is! The packaging alone is insanely beautiful, and I love how they have continued the peach and pink floral design onto the casing of the palette itself, along with its rose gold metallic finish, this makes for possibly the cutest packaging I have personally come across in the makeup world.
The palette costs £33, which for a high quality palette, with a mirror on the inside of the lid, a blusher, a highlighter and nine eyeshadow shades I think is definitely very reasonable. Tarte’s trusty Amazonian clay formulas are of course included in each pan to give plenty of pigment, creamy colour payoff and long-lasting wear.
The blush shade is named Made You Blush, and is a pretty light mauve shade, with the highlighter, Pure Soul being a light champagne shade tinged with tiny pink iridescent shimmer. As mentioned, there are nine eyeshadow shades, including;
Brilliance: a very light nude shimmer
High School Sweetheart: a pale nude matte
Endless Summer: a super shimmery warm champagne, which could also be used as a highlighter!
Santorini Sands: a paler nude matte than High School Sweetheart
Heart of Gold: a high shimmer/almost glitter rose gold
Road Trip: a warm chocolate matte
Married Life: a cream matte
Tea Time: a mid-brown matte
Wanderlust: a high shimmer copper toned brown
I adore the mixture of mattes, shimmers and high-shimmers/glitters included within this palette, and I think it is something that can take you throughout all seasons and with it also being a cheek and highlighter palette, it definitely makes a great travel buddy!
