Off the bat the packaging is awesome!! I love the vintage alligator with wings and the typography. It is a textured wood cardboard with a magnetic closure. When you open it, it has an awesome big mirror with a cute quote from her. It also comes with a little brush with the same wood colored handle.

The formula: This is a great formula. I actually think I like it better than tarte’s other palette formulas such as the Tartelette Palette. These shadows smell like VANILLA!!!  This formula is awesome too. These are very creamy, blendable and pigmented. There is a mixture of matte, frost, metallic and glittery shades. I really love the matte shades. They really pack a punch! Some of the frosty metallic shades weren’t as pigmented like #sfs but other than that this palette is awesome.

I personally like the shades she picked out. Some people are mad that they aren’t crazy colors. She said she wanted to build a palette that everyone could wear from young to old. I think this is a very wearable palette for all ages and many skin tones. I think it definitely reflects her personality and shades that she actually wears.

I love this palette and I think she did a great job. Did you get yours? Are you going to get it?
