This post contains a ton of product pictures, swatches, and eye looks for the Tarte Tartelette Juicy eyeshadow palette. I’ve swatched this palette by itself, swatched it next to similar palettes, and done a few eye looks to show you. Tarte Tartlette Juicy retails for $39 and can be purchased both at Ulta and Sephora. Anyway, let’s get started with all the pictures and thoughts!
Note: A lot of these images (plus video not shown here) appear on my Instagram first while I’m still formatting and writing the blog post. I’d love to have you join me on Instagram! Follow my account @stefsedge for lots of makeup content.
These photos show the product from multiple angles and up close to give you a better idea of what this palette is all about.
We have six shimmers and six mattes (one includes micro sparkle – Luscious). I love shimmer shadows, so this is a great mix for my personal tastes. The shimmers range from light to deep which I also love.
Fresh, untouched eyeshadow pans are so beautiful.
Swatches of Tartelette Juicy
Swatches Comparing Tartelette Juicy to Other Similar Palettes
I definitely don’t have every pink toned eyeshadow palette in existence! Pink and Brown are really common eyeshadow shades, so you probably do have something similar in your collection. I tried to only include palettes that are still available, but I did include one discontinued one (Milani Pure Passion) because it was just SO similar.
First, let’s compare Tartelette Juicy to Tartelette In Bloom. If you’re a fan of the Tarte formula, you might have some of their other Tartelette palettes. I’ve loved the In Bloom palette for a very long time!
Next up is the Pure Passion palette from Milani Cosmetics. This palette is no longer available, but it was pretty popular for quite awhile. It retailed for $20, and I snagged it for about $10 from the Milani site when it was on clearance. So check your stash for this one! I can’t believe how similar these two palettes are!
Bobbi Brown Luxe Metal Rose Palette – A similar take on pink eyeshadow. The Luxe Metal Rose palette has a strong duochrome (pink/gold, 2nd shade swatched) which you can’t really tell in this swatch photo. Also, the Metal Rose shade (second from bottom) is stunning, it has small silver micro shimmers in it, and this photo doesn’t do it justice! I like that the lightest shade in Luxe Metal Rose isn’t a pink.
Next photo is the Tartelette Juicy palette compared to the Bobbi Brown Nude Drama II palette. I compared these two because the Bobbi Brown has some pink and purple tones, but as you can see, the Bobbi Brown has several more neutral shades than the Juicy palette. They both share a pop of copper which I thought was interesting. Also most of the shimmers in the Nude Drama II are what I would call “textured”, they have micro sparkles in them where as the Juicy palette is more of a smoother metallic finish for the shimmers.
Next up is a really good option for a drugstore dupe. As you can see, either one of the Maybelline City Mini palettes shown below has a striking similarity to the Tartelette Juicy palette. The lighter one is “Downtown Sunrise” and the deeper one is “Blushed Avenue”. If you have both of these City Mini’s, then you basically have the whole Juicy palette! The Blushed Avenue palette gives you a deep purple matte which the Juicy palette lacks.
I swatched the shade Orchid from the Juicy palette twice because there was a very similar shade in each of the City Mini palettes. These City Mini palettes have been on the market for a long time, so you might already have them in your collection.
The City Mini palettes retail for $7.59 each at Target. (I’ve seen them in my Walmart and Walgreens stores as well, they’re pretty widely available, but finding the exact color version you’re looking for can be a bit of a challenge!). Link to Downtown Sunrise at Target.com. Link to Blushed Avenue at Amazon.com (I’m pretty sure this is an authorized seller because I followed a link directly from the Maybelline site to get to this Amazon page, but be careful buying makeup on Amazon!).
And here is a slideshow of even more pictures I made of the palette and swatches that I really wanted to show you, but I know this post is getting really long with so many pictures. Take a look if you’re interested.
Eyeshadow Looks Using Tartelette Juicy Palette
This palette performed as expected. Quality is good, no issues applying the shadows. The shade Dream Chaser is a lot more pink than I thought it would be – I thought it would really give a purple punch.
This palette is going to play very nicely with pink and mauve toned lips. I’ve been enjoying Tarte Festival Liquid Lipstick from my collection. Link to Quick Dry Lip Paint on Tarte’s website (I don’t see this shade offered at Ulta or Sephora)
Clinique Nude Pop (see my blog post with swatches here) is the blush I’ve been reaching for the most when using this palette. It’s a very light peachy/pink that doesn’t compete with the colorful pinks in the Juicy palette.
Review and Conclusion
This palette performs very similar to the Tarte In Bloom palette. So if you enjoy the formula in the Tartelette palettes, I think you’ll be very happy with this palette. The main consideration for purchasing this palette is do you like pinks? Six shades in this palette are definitely pink. Two shades are neutral but leaning pink, and four shades are definitely not pink. I found the shades to be flattering on my skin tone (fair and neutral/warm).
