Tarte have received a bit of criticism in the past year or so due to the amount of neutral eyeshadow palettes they have been releasing and the lack of more colourful palettes they haven't been releasing. I have so many nude palettes in my collection, and yes if something slightly different was released then I would probably get it, but I haven't bought a Tarte eyeshadow palette for a while now until they released the Tarte High Tides & Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette.
From my experience, this is something pretty new for the brand, and I love the colours and textures they have brought together. The palette itself is sturdy and made from a bright chrome turquoise material, and features an under the sea image which moves around. You will find a large mirror on the inside of the lid and twelve eye shadows inside, four high-impact glitter toppers and eight creamy powder shadows. The shades included are;
Buried Gold - Champagne shimmer
Beach Therapy - Matte warm nude
Aloha, Beaches - Matte terracotta
Galapagos - Brown shimmer
Beach Daze - Pink glitter
Champagne Beach - Light gold glitter
Aquaholic - Teal glitter
Turtlette - Silver glitter
South Beach - Matte melon
Surf's Up - Matte aqua
Dive In - Deep teal shimmer
Deep Blue - Cobalt shimmer
I have always loved the formula of Tarte eye shadows and so I am so pleased they have released something a little different, and a little more up my street. I love how you can keep it bronzed and neutral, add a little melon and aqua for a pop of colour or go all out with one of the glitter toppers. I would advise to go in quite light-handed with the glitters as they are literally pure glitter so be sure to apply a glitter base coat first.
The eye shadows have also been infused with antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts to help hydrate and soften the eyelids - skincare and makeup in one? Gotta love that! The Tarte High Tides & Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette costs £38.00 and you can find it online at Tarte here.
