Tarte: True Blood Limited Edition Palette Review & Swatches

Hi everyone! I'm sure many of you have heard of the Tarte for True Blood Limited Edition Palette that was made available early to Sephora Beauty Insiders several days ago. Unfortunately, I just couldn't keep my itchy fingers off purchasing it and I just wanted to share my findings and impressions!

Price: $52.00

Contents include:
17 Eye Shadows
EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner in Black 
Lights! Camera! Lashes! Mascara in Black 
Lifted Natural Eye Primer
Card with exclusive looks created by True Blood's lead makeup artist


Favorite Shadows From the Palette: 
the true death

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. I'm glad that there are a lot of wearable colors in this palette. The color payoff for most of the shadows are pretty good and you get a decent amount of shadow in each pan. All of these swatches required one swipe except for "the light" which took two. The packaging was also beautiful with a magnetic closure (did the upside down shake test and box didn't pop open), mirror and embossed borders on the box surrounding the shadows.  

On the downside, I do wish "fairy" was more pink toned because when swatched alongside "the light" they were a little hard to tell apart. "Nocturnal", "immortal" and "legend" were pretty similar as well. Only difference I would say is that "Nocturnal" has blue shimmers, "immortal" has silver shimmers and "legend" is matte black. 

I would say if you had a little extra money to spend and are a True Blood fan, this palette is definitely something to look into. 

Now, I know this product was released alongside a limited edition lip tint and cheek stain. Have you guys tried it? If yes, I'd love to know what you all think of those products as well! Let me know if you have any questions regarding the palette and I will try to answer them to the best of my abilities. 

Note: Product was purchased with my own money and the reviews are 100% my own.
