Tarte’s mermaid eyeshadow palette is now a full collection!
Move over unicorns, it's the year of the mermaid!
Update: Hold the phone, Tarte Cosmetics. First, the brand showed us they were bringing out a brand new palette that was for all our inner mermaids. Now, according to Tarte's Instagram, we're getting an entire collection and our Monday just got a whole lot better.
The eyeshadow palette is called the "Be a Mermaid and Make Waves" palette. It consists of 14 fabulous shades that will have you singing "under the sea" in no time. But wait, that's not all. There is also going to be a new mascara, lip gloss, lipstick, liquid shadow, lash curler and brush set!
The major standout for us would have to be the brush set. It consists of five magical brushes that are to die for. The handles are designed in holographic mermaid tails with scale detail. From the looks of things, the brush set includes a pencil brush, blush brush, bronzer brush, paddle foundation brush and an eyeshadow brush.
We've seen our fair share of mystical magic in the world of makeup with unicorns definitely a big trend. However, Tarte Cosmetics is here to ring in this new year with a brand new fantasy creature to inspire you.
Whether you were a Princess Ariel fan or you just love the big blue, everyone can get around mermaids! The eyeshadow palette features a gorgeous iridescent blue/green clam packaging that looks like it was plucked straight from the ocean. It also has a large mirror on the inside of the lid so you can get your makeup done on the go.
The palette consists of 14 shades of both warm and cool tones as well as a mixture of both mattes and shimmers. The inspiration behind the Tarte Cosmetics palette is that it wants its shoppers to "be a mermaid and make waves", and that's definitely something we can get behind.
If you're not already living for this palette then you need to get around these shade names. Our personal favourites would have to be "Shore Thing" and "Fin-tastic". The others include Beach Please, Nude Beach, Saltwater, Mermosa, Frose, Bubbles, Shipwreck, Cavern, Lagoon, Splash and Shell-yeah.
However, if there is one shadow that's definitely caught our eye, it has to be Bubbles. It looks like a duo-chrome purple and blue shade that will literally have you looking like a mermaid in no time.
Where and when can you buy it?
We don't have an exact launch date yet but we don't believe it will be too far away. Some Sephora stores in the US already have this palette so we probably won't have to wait too long.Tarte Cosmetics is also stocked at Sephora so keep your eyes open for that drop. The first place you'll be able to get your hands on this palette in Australia is directly from the Tarte Cosmetics website, so stay tuned for updates!
