Tarte cosmetics has put out a great makeup kit an palette for True Blood, available exclusively at Sephora. The Tarte True Blood Glamour Me Set includes 17 eye shadows, a natural eye primer, a full size emphaEyes soft eyeliner, and a sample size of Tarte Lights, Camera, Action mascara. I purchased a True Blood Palette to review and swatch, and am rather glad that I did! There are some very nice and very practical shades in the set. Tarte also has a limited edition cheek stain and lip tint to match the set. I adore the lip tint, and you can see a swatch of it here on Girl Gloss: Tarte TrueBlood Lip Tint Swatch.
Below are Tarte True Blood Swatches of all 17 shades. They are in the same order as seen in the rows in the photo above (alternating rows of three shades and four shades). The eye shadows have good pigment to them, and the more vibrant shades have a very nice pure color to them, which was good to see. They are a bit on the soft side, which is fine by me, but I sometimes see others complain about that characteristic. I didn’t feel that they were so soft that they were difficult to control, and I like being able to blend pretty well. A nice bonus to this kit is that the shades are very versatile. I can wear all of these, and I suspect that will be true for many other people across many different skin tones.
From left to right are swatches of the following shades: The Light, Fairy, and Dark.
Swatches of Dawn, Werewolf, Waitress, and Nocturnal
Charmer, Glamour Me, and Stake
Bayou, Telepath, The True Death, and Immortal
Swatches of Moss, Legend, and “V” (I particularly love these three shades)
Here are swatches of the TrueBlood primer and eyeliner. The primer works quite well and the liner is very soft and easy to apply. The included mascara is also quite nice. It gives good definition and length, plus I got some curl out it.
Here are a few views of the case. It is a pretty good size and the eye shadows are also of decent size. The case includes a mirror and a drawer for the primer, liner, and mascara.
The kit also comes with an instruction card for creating a few looks:
This is a limited edition collection that I suspect will be rather popular. It already is getting rave reviews on the sales page. So if you think you want it, get it before it disappears!
