I know Tarte gets a bad rap for their repetitive palettes, but I really enjoy the formula, so I couldn’t wait to try the newest addition. Keep on reading to find out my thoughts…
The Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette has a strange backstory, in that is started off with the Lil Juicy Palette which launched as part of the Tarte 2020 holiday collection within a three-piece palette set.
Following the launch of the palette set, Tarte then went on to launch a twenty-pan Juicy palette. Nobody really knows what’s happened to that palette, as it just got replaced by the Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette in a twelve-pan format.
The Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette is housed within a pale pink chrome compact, with the same format as the other Tartelette palettes, with twelve powder shadows and a generous mirror inside the lid.
Each of the pans is individually named, and the shades are designed, so you can use them in vertical or horizontal rows to create a makeup look, or obviously you could use them however you wish.

The Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette is a pretty, pinky toned neutral palette with a mostly cool toned colour story. As you can see from the swatches, the shades are all nicely pigmented.
I feel like the swatches look prettier than the shades look on the eyes, and that never happens. If anything, it’s the other way round, but it’s just not a special palette, and a lot of the shades look very similar once blended.
I like the palette, and definitely won’t be decluttering it, but it’s not my favourite Tarte palette I’ve tried. There aren’t any disappointing shades within the palette, but it just hasn’t won me over like the original Tartelette, Tartelette In Bloom and Tartelette Toasted palettes.
