Tarte Double Duty Dream Big Amazonian Clay Palette

Leave a Comment

I don't understand why this palette is not getting the love it deserves. The Double Duty Tarte Dream Big 8 pan Amazonian clay eyeshadow palette has a wonderful scent of a chocolate desert and the shades are soft, buttery and pigmented.
This is my very first Tarte palette and I am very impressed.

Since the name of the palette is Dream Big, the encouraging and inspirational shade names go perfectly with it in mattes and metallics!
They are
  • This Is It (rose gold)
  • All In (deep rose)
  • Go For It (brown)
  • You Can (gold)
  • Happening (plum)
  • Hustle (black luster)
  • Ambitious (cream)
  • Risk Taker (pale pink shimmer)

Here is a look I created with this palette. I really like how the colors blended well and the staying power lasted 8 hours under a good primer and or concealer.

For the Crease: happening
 Brow bone: ambitious 
 Lid: This is it 
 Outer corner: all in 
 Lower lash line: happening and all in 
 Brows: Divaderme in Cappuccino Brown 
 Liner: Starlooks 
 Mascara: UD perversion Concealer: 
Amazing Cosmetics hydrate concealer in light golden 
Mineral Powder Foundation: Mica Beauty 
Blush: Tarte Doll Face 
Highlighter: Mary Lou Manizer 
Lips: Wet n Wild Never Petal Down liner topped with a pink metallic gloss.

The Tarte Dream Big is Limited edition and it's available at Ulta stores or or for 30 Bucks.
I took advantage of Ulta's 20 percent sale and got it for 25 bucks.
Overall, This palette is beautiful, it smells great and works with all eye colors.

The Balm Cosmetics Nude Dude And EOTD


In Aprils Ipsy's bag, The Balm Cosmetics was one of the brand samples offered.

I stopped my Ipsy membership months ago but I always like to see their sneak peeks and I'll always be an ipster at heart.
Well, as soon as I saw the sneak peek for the Balm Nude dude palette sample I was like darn, I'm no longer a member.

So, I did research on the palette and saw swatches on IG and was taken by it.

I told my hubby and he said in the summer he would buy it for me , so I was cool with that.

Then on a Tuesday or Thursday morning ipsy let out their ipsy me offers for the palette for only 20 bucks plus free shipping, regular price is $35.

I was so excited I went to ipsy and hit the redeem button but then I forgot I'm no longer an ipster so I probably would not qualify to get it but apparently ipsy saved my profile incase I wanted to resub and Bam! I got the palette.

The Nude Dude really does not have cartoon guys in the nude, the dudes are just shirtless and clothed with white shorts or maybe white towels. Whew! Lol
I still didn't want to show it to my 8 year old daughter. 

The 12 Nude Dude ranges from mattes to metallics and are super pigmented more so over primer. 
It comes with a large mirror which is nice.

Swatchy Time:)
These shadows are silky and buttery and each shadow dude represents their personalites or characters all starting with the letter F, like Fearless, Flawless,Firm, ect.

I found that the right side of the palette is more pigmented maybe because the colors are darker.
It comes with a little brush which I found to be flimsy in quality.

This palette is gorgeous and I'm so happy because this is my first The Balm eyeshadow palette and for 20 bucks even more so:)

Here's an eye look I did with the nude dude and yes I got a little fancy with some falsies. Lol


Primer: Mary Kay
Eye Base and Brow Bowne: Fearless
Lid: Flirty
Crease: Flirty and Funny
Lower Lashline: Funny
Eyeliner: Friendly

Lips: Wet N Wild Megaslicks Lip Stain in Red-dy or Not
