Packaging:
The Tarteist PRO palette comes in a sleek and thin compact. The black lid has a matte finish and the gold base is super shiny and reflective. Inside you get a huge mirror, 16 matte shadows, and four shimmery shadows. The shadows weigh in at 1g each so you 20g of shadows in total.

Formulation:
If you love mattes then this is the palette for you. Out of the 20 shades, 16 of them are mattes. The color scheme is also super neutral so it's perfect for an everyday look. Formulation-wise, all the mattes are very soft and smooth. There's absolutely no dry chalkiness and only a couple are slightly patchy. The shadows can be a bit powdery but I find that to be quite common with non-chalky mattes. Additionally, all the shadows have a soft vanilla scent; this certainly doesn't affect the shadow's performance but I'm a sucker for anything vanilla-scented.
Also included are four shimmers, which are all incredibly pigmented and rich. They have a creamy formulation that gives the smoothest and loveliest application. Given that I have a predilection for shimmers, I would have loved to see even more shimmers, especially given the amazing formulation but the mattes are definitely very practical and natural. Overall this is a palette I would highly recommend, the packaging is sleek and the overall formulation is fantastic. If you can only bring one eyeshadow palette when traveling, this has got to be the one!
