Tarte | Aspyn Ovard Eye & Cheek Palette: Review and Swatches
For Summer 2018, Tarte has partnered with Aspyn Ovard to create a neutral, everyday face and eye palette inspired by the lifestyle influencer's effortless bohemian style. I've got swatches and reviews of the Tarte Aspyn Ovard Eye & Cheek Palette ($49 CAD) to share with you today. To read on, click......

Packaging:
Rose gold is the name of the game here as evident by the shiny reflective finish covering all surfaces of the palette. Adding to the feminine, girly vibe, the lid is printed with a gorgeous watercolor floral pattern. There's a large mirror inside and you get two cheek colors (2.5 g each) and nine eyeshadows (1.5 g). Overall this is a very well packaged palette. The design is super pretty and sleek and the quality is excellent.

Formulation:
This palette offers two cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The overall formulation is impressive. The mattes are beautifully pigmented, non-chalky, and easy to blend while the shimmers are creamy and intense. The blush is not overly pigmented, making it easy to apply and the highlighter is shimmery but not glittery. Additionally, everything has a sweet vanilla scent so not only do they look good, they also smell amazing!

Made You Blush: This is a dusty terracotta rose blush. The color is quite neutral and sophisticated. It's not super pigmented but the formulation is even and buildable.
Pure Soul: A classic champagne shimmer highlighter, Pure Soul is creamy and pigmented.
Brilliance: This is a like pale rosy champagne shimmer. The formulation is semi-sheer but creamy.
Santorini Sands: A light creamy taupe matte, Santorini Sands is the perfect transition color.
Married Life: This is a light cream matte with just the tiniest hint of golden rose sheen. It works perfectly as an inner corner and brow bone highlight.

High School Sweetheart: This is a soft rosy brown that wears noticeably darker than it appears in the pan. The formulation is silky and blendable.
Heart of Gold: This is a stunning copper-gold glitter. It's super intense and buildable and the fallout is actually not too bad.
Tea Time: A classic medium matte brown, Tea Time is great for the crease and outer corner.
Endless Summer: This is an intense champagne shimmer, a little more antique gold than the highlighter but similar enough that I wish we got another shade instead.
Road Trip: This is a deep chocolate brown with a nice and pigmented formulation.
Wanderlust: Last but not least is this rich warm brown sprinkled with a dash of golden sparkles. The formulation is super pigmented and creamy.

Here is a neutral glittery look I did using "High School Sweetheart" in the crease, "Road Trip" lightly blended in the outer corner, and "Heart of Gold" pressed on the center of the lid and smudged on the lower lash line. I also used "Brilliance" in the inner corner and "Married Life" as a brow bone highlight.
As you can see, this is a simple neutral palette. If you are looking for unique shades that you can't find elsewhere, this is probably not the one for you. However, if you are in the mood for a well-formulated and gorgeously packaged everyday eye and cheek palette, then definitely check this out!
