Tarte was having a great sale right after Christmas with an extra percentage off sale items so I picked up a few things, one of them being this Buried Treasure eyeshadow palette. I paid $14.40 (reg $36), placed my order on 12/26/2017, it shipped on 12/27/2017 and I received on 1/4/2017.
I’ll admit I purchased it because of the packaging. Love or hate Tarte, they really do know how to do packaging right. I knew that the shadows had pretty mixed reviews so, honestly, I wasn’t expecting too much.
The pigmentation was pretty average, definitely not as bad as some reviewers would have you believe. But the creasing, oh my! I started with my regular base of skin care and Urban Decay Primer Potion, used the 4 largest bubbles of shadow and within 6 hours I had a lovely line cutting right through my crease where the shadow had balled up. Ugh.
For $14 this was an OK purchase, at full price I would’ve been mad. It is still really pretty to look at.
