Tarteist™ Contour Palette Version III
is also Dermatologically tested and Formulated without parabens and phthalates
The only down point that I can say is that some of the product such as the blush, bronze and glow shades all contain Talc as their main ingredient. This is a cheap filler that I think any Tarte palettes could do better without.
Overall, the quality of the products are excellent as expected from Tarte. These powders were also richly pigmented and buttery. Light-handed application is recommended and it is best to use it sparingly and slowly build up the intensity in each layer rather than going into the pan heavy-handedly. If you applied too much pigment, use a clean face or blush brush to blend it out and reduce the intensity. I feel these shades could go muddy and appear a little ashy if used heavily.
The contour shades and the bronzers lasted on my skin for more than six hours while the highlight and glow, I had to re-apply once during the day. But overall, they had good longevity. These powders are lightly scented with vanilla scents, which I enjoy, absolutely beautiful! This palette is best for people with medium to deep skin tones.
