Swatches: Tarte Make Them Stare Set of 5 Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeshadow Sticks

10:34 AM


What is it: A set of five dazzling, waterproof shadow sticks from tarte that are infused with Amazonian clay.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants an enchanting stare this holiday season with a mix of soft, wearable eye shadow shades.

Why is it different: The creamy, Amazonian-infused shadow sticks are back! These waterproof, velvety-smooth wands glide on like silk and wear like iron. The set offers an array of must-have shades that deliver gorgeous, budge-proof pigment for any occasion. Perfectly packaged in a festive gift box, these ultra-portable and easy-to-apply cream shadows make a dazzling gift for any girl who's dashing through her day.

How do I use it: Apply each shade directly to your lid. Then, using your fingertip or a shadow brush, gently blend up toward the crease. For a more dramatic look, gently smudge along the lower lash line.

From tarte.

Includes:
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Copper, a shimmering copper shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Sugar Plum, a shimmering plum shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Champagne Pearl, a shimmering champagne shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Smoky Topaz, a creamy taupe shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Sage, a shimmering olive green shade



If you are an eyeshadow crayon lover, these are absolutely fantastic!  The colors are very pigmented, very blendable, and once set, do not budge.  I love using these on my lower lashline, which tends to carry my eyeliner all over my face :(  Not with these though!

My go to shade has been the Sage and the Champagne Pearl (two colors on the right).  The Champagne is a great highlighter, and also helps brighten the eyes, eyebrows, and even as a highlight for your blush.  

There is a video below which really shows the intensity of these shadows.  I absolutely love them!






I purchased this set over the holidays on QVC, but they are no longer available.  I did find a similar set on Macy's website for $35, as well as the Tarte website for $9 each.

I love discovering new indie companies and sharing them with you!  I was running through Instagram the other day, and stumbled across Bitter Lace Beauty, an adorable Etsy Shop that has a variety of highlighters to choose from.  I picked up UnBirthday, which is a gorgeous swirl of turquoise, gold, pink, coral and violet.  When brushed on the skin, it is the most beautiful and bright way of turning the lights on your skin.  I couldn't be happier with the purchase, and I know I will be going back for more!  


I purchased two UnBirthday, one for me, and one for my sister.  Look at how different each one is!


Above, the UnBirthday I kept for myself.  I absolutely love all of the colors, and look at how illuminating it is!  The colors all swirl together beautifully, and make just a gorgeous color on the skin.  With precise application, you could grab any of the colors individually to use as an eye-shadow or highlight as well.  

Below, UnBirthday on me.  Everything I am wearing is broken down below:
