This Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette review is long overdue because I’ve had this for almost a year now, but it’s still one of my current favorites so I had to write a post on this!

The two shades that sold me on this palette are Whimsy and Mod. They are absolutely gorgeous reddish and orangey shades that are perfect for Fall eye makeup looks. Before getting the Tarteist Palette, I was actually eyeing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette because the shades were pretty similar, but I ended up wanting the Tarteist Palette more because it had more shades to choose from and seemed like a better fit for my everyday looks.
First Impression of the Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Palette
My first impression of this palette is that it was beautiful! Lovely packaging and the eyeshadows smell so good – like a sweet scent that reminds me of desserts. The palette has 16 matte shades and 4 shimmery ones.
The first time I used it, I had a little trouble with the application. I just felt like the eyeshadows would crumble to dust as soon as the brush touched the shadows. You really have to be gentle or else it ends up making a small chalky mess in the pot. I eventually got used to it, but I just wish it weren’t so dry and powdery.
The pigmentation of the shadows are also a hit or miss. I feel that the left side of the palette has weaker pigmentation and requires you to build up the color in layers to get the full effect. Whereas, the right side of the palette has a better color payoff. The shimmery shades are pretty bold so a little goes a long way with those shadows.
Overall, I give this palette a 3.5/5! The colors are beautiful and I love every single one, but the application is just a little messy and difficult.
