Tarte Showstopper Palette

by Sarah

I caved in and bought Tarte’s Showstopper Palette – instant confession: OK, I wasn’t trying “that” hard to refrain myself.

After purchasing Tarte’s Rainforest palette (review here; makeup tutorial here) and falling in love with how gorgeous and versatile it is, I just had to get the Showstopper palette too. Now that it’s here…I’m wondering why I didn’t get it sooner.

Tarte Showstopper Palette

As with the Rainforest Palette, the Showstopper Palette contains eye and cheek products, including Park Ave Princess bronzer, Champagne Pink highlighter, a full size Amazonian clay blush in Fame and 6 super buttery eyeshadows.

The reason I was really drawn to this palette is of course the colors. I really enjoy my warm tones and seeing as the blush is also a stunning shade of peachy coral, it pretty much ticked all the boxes for me. And can we just admire the packaging for a minute!!…

The compact is embossed with a leather-like snakeskin print in Tarte’s famous purple shade. It sits against a shiny gold frame and this combination gives the palette a stunningly classy look and feel. I can totally see why they named it Showstopper.

Quality wise, I couldn’t say enough good things about all the products featured in the palette. They all contain Tarte’s signature Amazonian clay, texture is really smooth and blends beautifully.

This palette contains more shimmer eyeshadows than the Rainforest palette but the shimmer is so finely milled that some shades can even pass off as satin finish. As with the Rainforest palette, you can use these shadows with a wet brush to intensity color and texture and turn the darkest eyeshadow, Dim The Lights, into a liner.

I did a makeup tutorial with the Rainforest Palette featuring 3 different looks from the most natural to the more dramatic. You can definitely apply the same techniques to this palette and create countless looks. Check out the full tutorial HERE

Tarte’s Showstopper Palette is also $38, and it is limited edition. If you love your warm toned shades and/or looking for a versatile all in one palette, you need this little gem in your collection.
