Tarte Amazon Escape Palette


When Roses Beauty Store added a whole heap of Tarte products to their website I just couldn't resist. I've been really getting into palettes as of late and the Amazon Escape made a very warm welcome into my ever growing collection.

Consisting of two blushers and six eyeshadows, the Amazon Escape palette is a definite must have for Tarte newbies. But the great thing about the palette is the size - this thing is big! The blushers weigh in at 0.16oz each whereas the eyeshadows come in at 0.06oz. Compared to a lot of palettes on the market that's a huge difference. The colours inside are as follows:-

  • Blusher in Free - Bright orange based coral, very pigmented and requires a light hand.
  • Blusher in Exposed - Dusky rose, office-friendly despite the high pigmentation.
  • Eyeshadow in Tame - Shimmery bone white, beautiful highlight shade.
  • Eyeshadow in Rope - Matte beige, great for a base.
  • Eyeshadow in Canopy - Rich chocolate brown, intensely pigmented.
  • Eyeshadow in Rare - Subtle warm peach.
  • Eyeshadow in Camo - Shimmery olive brown, very rich in colour.
  • Eyeshadow in Tribal - Deep plum, requires a light hand.

One thing that was consistent for me among Amazon Escape was pigmentation. All of the shades impressed me, particularly Rope, which evens out the colour on the eyelid brilliantly. My favourite of the bunch has to be Camo, it works exceptionally well to create a beautiful bronzed look on the eyes without overdoing it. Out of the two blushers, Exposed is the most flattering on my skin. While Free is a great colour, it just doesn't work for me. 

I found that both the eyeshadows and the blushers lasted 8+hrs without fading or creasing, something I really look for in makeup. Those of you with an extensive eyeshadow collection probably won't need this palette as the majority of the shades are dupable, however the quality is outstanding and makes it well worth the price.

If you're interested in US beauty products and don't have a trip planned anytime soon I'd really recommend Roses Beauty Store - while some items are slightly overpriced compared to their dollar equivalent, if you're really after something it's worth it!

  4. Soooo pretty! That really is a lovely palette, you will get a lot of use from it :) Couldn't help but notice half their Tarte stuff has gone up in price on the website since its been released... kinda annoying as I was waiting til payday and I still don't get why they decide to up the prices after a couple of weeks (same with the Disney stuff!) Shame, because now I really can't justify it! :(

    1. I know what you mean, I have no idea why they put them up substantially and I noticed they're selling the Bath & Body Works Pocketbacs for £7.99 each! Some of the prices are just so confusing but I'm glad this is still reasonable!

  9. I don't think I've EVER been disappointed with a tarte product... so glad you have now experienced the wonder as well!! I've been lusting over this palette since it released quite a while back but keep putting it off; maybe I'll snag it with the rest of the holiday collections soon haha :)
