Tarte Energy Noir Clay Palette Review

Tate Energy Noir palette


It is here – a NEW Tarte palette!  This is the Energy Noir Clay palette, which retails for $38, and let me tell you about it!  The palette contains eight shadows, one highlight, and one blush.  Here are names and brief descriptions:IMG_0026

Top Row on Left:

  • Full Moon (matte beige)
  • Charged Up (silvery taupe – shimmery)
  • Dark Drive (matte dark chocolate)

Second Row on Left:

  • Stone Unturned (matte taupe)
  • Up Too Slate (smoky plum- shimmery)
  • Misty Mauve (matte mauve)

Bottom Row on Left:

  • Power Plum (matte dark plum)
  • Lunar Eclipse (matte black)

Top Upper Right:

  • Unearthed blush

On Right Under Blush:

  • Crystal spark (champagne highlighter but could be a shimmery shadow)

So now the question is — how are they?  Well, let me put you at ease…they are wonderful!  The shadows are a nice mixture of holding color but blending evenly (something I have not always experienced with Tarte palettes) and the colors are wonderful.  I love using them individually and also mixed!  There is a balanced mixture of matte and shimmery.  As you may know, I tend to favor matte shadows but these shimmery colors are rather nice and easily toned down.

The cheek color is just perfect – a bit darker than I would have thought I would like but when applied – I LOVED it!  The only piece of the palette that may not get much use from me is the highlighter.  I have become tied to the Charlotte Tilbury bronzer and highlighter palette I just got and cannot use anything else right now (this might just be a phase however).

Other than the highlighter jut not catching my eye at the moment, the palette is a home run!  No settling into fine lines around my eyes – meaning there is minimal fall out when applying since that often is what happens and catches in my lovely crevices!

Here is my overall rating.  I bet you will not be too surprised by it!
