I love a Makeup Palette, especially multi use one. The more compact I can be when packing for some time away the better.
I recently picked up the Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette from QVC as part of one of their TSV as I have been looking for a compact palette that includes face and eye make up to use for travel.
The Showstopper palette includes 6 eyeshadows, a blush, bronze and highlight made from the famous Tarte Clay formulation.
Starting with the eyeshadows, they are all neutral browns, varying in matte and shimmer formulas. The tone of them leans more towards the warm side of things and I found the shadows are really pigmented. Just from one swatch you can tell they are super soft and they blend beautifully onto the skin.
Onto the Blush which is a matte peachy pink colour, the perfect shade for summer. It is very pigmented so I find I have to use a light hand with it. Again the formula is soft and blendable like all the other products in the palette.
The bronzer looks like it has a bit of shimmer in the pan but once swatched it is more of satin finish. It isn’t too orange toned and I think it would suit most people.
Lastly the highlight which is an icy white shade packed full of shimmer and glow! It is a very icy highlight, perfect for my fair skin though I think it could possibly look a bit ashy on darker skin tones. It gives the most beautiful glow though.
As you can see this palette has everything you need to add colour to you make up look. The palette itself isn’t too big and comes with a decent size mirror. This will be getting packed when I go for any weekends away this summer.
You can pick the Showstopper palette up from Sephora or Tarte online for £31.50.
