There are nine metallic eyeshadow in jewel toned shades and one matte eyeshadow in a nude shade. The highlighter shade is more of the cool frost with a slight golden shimmer finish.

Currently, as of the 11th of January 2018, Tarte Cosmetics Online are having their summer sale and this palette costs AUD $47 or around USD $37 during this sale period.
The Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye and Cheek Palette is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and it is also gluten-free as well as dermatologist tested. Impressive indeed!
There are many eyeshadow palette in the market that listed Talc, which supposedly is a filler, as their first ingredient and this simply means that talc makes up a majority of the eyeshadow powder.
Out of all these eyeshadows and highlighting powder, only Myth, which is the only matte shade in the palette is the only one with Talc listed as the first ingredient.
I suppose this is still within the acceptable range in my dictionary. It would be perfect if every eyeshadow in this palette has mica as its majority ingredient.
It also listed a few natural ingredients that are derived from nature infused into the powders in this palette such as vanillin (vanilla bean extract), vanilla planifolia fruit extract and oryza sativa (rice) extract that boost their capability to protect and nourish our skin naturally.
The packaging of this palette is just beautiful!
It will make the perfect gifts for any makeup lovers as well as the perfect treat for ourselves!
It has a circular compact shape with a good-sized mirror inside as well as a beautiful contemporary and colourful mosaic design gracing its cover. This compact is the perfect size for travelling as well.
Tarte has impressed me so far with their creative and yet beautifully chic packaging that tempt anyone who has the eyes and an appreciation to beauty.

EASE OF APPLICATION
The eyeshadows in this palette is rich in colour and has buttery softness feel to its texture. They are not powdery and have minimal to no fall-outs upon application.
Although it can be tricky to mix and match the colours since most of them fall into the “pop of colours” colour scheme, I still love this palette since it intrigues and inspires me to create a colourful look that I would not normally go for.
