Hello, guys! Today, I have a review of the Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette. Seriously, that name is such a mouthful. WTF? Anyway, I have a review, swatches and some looks I created with this palette to share with you guys and I am done a couple tutorials using it. I’m hoping to have another up Friday. I’m shocked that I am getting this post done this week.
Let’s get started.
The packaging for this palette is very nice and aesthetically pleasing. I love black and gold combined with the simplicity used here.
The material this palette is made of is a hard plastic which feels sturdy. It’s not the easiest palette to open. I have to be careful not to drop it when I open it.
The black plastic on the top has a matte texture that can get super filthy and hard to get clean too, but that is the only complaints I have here because this palette is out of this world. I can’t believe I put off buying it for so long!
On the inside is a fantastic mirror as well.
The Breakdown + Swatches
Inside you have 20 incredibly pigmented eyeshadows made with Tarte’s new high-performance pro formula. You have 16 matte and 4 iridescent luster shades as they are called by Tarte.
According to Tarte the eyeshadows infused with Amazonian clay that blends smoothly, and are made from naturally derived ingredients and using what they call “Smart blend technology” that is highly pigmented, long wearing and flake resistant.
The pigmentation of these is no joke. Ultra concentrated color pay off and the mattes are so smooth and velvety. I am so impressed by these. By far the best eyeshadow I used from Tarte. I’m a huge fan of Tarte anyway but this collection is on another level.
You get a great variety of neutral shadows and a few bold shades. Incredibly versatile and so user friend despite being so pigmented. This is a great addition to anyone’s collection, beginner to pro level, this palette will work great for all skin tones.
Each row going across are coordinated to work together seamlessly or you can mix and match all over the palette. You have everything you need in this little guy for tons of looks.
On the first row, you have 4 warm matte neutrals.
Classic is a matte cream.
Innocent is a soft peach.
Whimsey is a medium warm brick.
Smoked is a dark coffee brown.
The next row is a beautifully cool toned selection of mattes in the mauve and plum family. These shades swatch warmer than they look in the pan as does the next row.
Vintage is a pure white.
Fierce is a cool taupe with purple undertones.
No Filter is a purple mauve that leans warmer in the skin.
Vamp is an aptly named deep blackened plum.
Next up is a warmer set of shades still in the pink, mauve and taupe family. Some of these come off warmer on the skin as well
Chic is a very pale dusty pink.
Profesh is a true taupe.
Mod is described as a deep cherry. It’s a unique shade that looks so pink in the pan but on the skin is a stunning soft red shade that anyone could rock.
Drama is a maroon despite looking purple in the pan.
The last row is a perfectly neutral/cool toned selection. These shades are staples in any collection.
Indie is a pale greige.
Bold is a soft light brown.
Edgy is a chocolate brown.
Punk is a soft black.
And lastly, the metallic shades which are so smooth and buttery. Wonderful and flattering formula.
Trendy is a teal and brown duo chrome.
Minx is a shimmering warm mauve.
Glam is a golden champagne
Ethereal is a vibrant bronze.
I mean, look at that shine! They are so finely milled they look wet on the skin.

Tarte includes 4 mini tutorials to give you some ideas of how to use this palette. I didn’t follow any of them but I like that they took the time to do that and might give a couple of them a try.
Here are a few of the looks I have created with this palette.
I am so glad I bought this palette. It’s stunningly good. They have reached a new high with the quality and pigmentation. The pigmentation is insane, and to blend so smoothly.
The Tarte Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette retails for $53. I picked mine up at my local Ulta.
