yes, the makeup isnt glued to the actual drawers and/mirrored parts, they are glued to a plastic container that fits in the drawers, so you can just remove the plastic container if you want and use the mirrored jewelry box as soon as u get it.

Oh yeah use them wet. I use them wet all the time. I suggest using synthetic brushes if you are going to wet them. Natural brushes might be hard to clean using natural pigments wet. There are 3 lighter highlight colors that are not well pigmented. I do not mind it though, as they are colors I do not want a lot of pigment from. The others are pretty nice. I am impressed, especially from a natural company. I usually do not like shadows other than UD.

The eye shadows do not have great pigmentation. They are not what you normally get with Tarte eye shadows. They don't blend well at all and in all honest feel kinda cheap.

yes you can use all eyeshadow wet. they have great pigmentation but they are NOT bright colors like kat von d/UD--- they are natural looking shadows. They are great but do not compare to artificial colors found in other companies. :)

These shadows are highly pigmented. I don't believe that you can use these wet. You need something like Laura Mercier baked eye shadows that can be used wet or dry. I don't believe that you will be disappointed at all on Christmas Morning when you open this up!

the pigment quality is poor, so if you like strong popping colours you will not like this pack. You can still return it though after you've opened it, Sephora's return policy allows for that.

I perosnally do not recommend this product. There is really is no color pay off with this palette. I purchased the tarte starlet palette without swatching it. Then the next day when i finally had time I swatched the eyeshadows and when when I swatched them I was so disappointed. The colors are real chalky and after blending the different colored dark eye shadow swatches on my hand they all looked the same color....dark and muddy and dark bluish-grayish. Needless to say i returned it and exchanged it for a different palette .this starlet eye shadow palette is not worth the price at all.
I recommend, if possible to tell your mom to exchange it for the too faced sweet dreams palette. I have it and its wonderful.

Can you depot the products?
Im an organized freak. So I keep all my shadows in Z Palettes, they are organized by brand, color & finish. So I would love to know if the products inside the vanity can be depoted & put in my handy dandy Z Palette. & If they can, are the vanity drawers roomy enough to actually hold jewelry or what not.

Thanks so much for your time :)

answer 5
It's not designed to be de-potted, if that's what you're asking. They're all glued to a thin plastic tray (the glittery stuff), so if you're careful at cutting that away, you could probably de-pot them.

I WISH the shadows were removable--they're perfectly separated into 4-shadow groups, so it would totally make sense to include an empty 4-shadow palette that you could interchange and stick in your bag!

I just went to check my product. The items are in small metal like tins (each individual color, not as a palette), but those tins appear to be glued to the plastic organizer inside the case. I am not sure how the depot works, but you might damage the items removing them (the are really set in that plastic tray).

Yes you probably could depot the eyeshadows if you tried. They are in a plastic tray like container, the top just has a glitter film over it. But i wouldn't recommend this, because the pigmentation is so poor. The face products are amazing though.

Does this palette include a guide for how to apply the shadows to create different looks with the included colors. The Tarte guides I've gotten before with their palettes have been awesome and very clear. I hope this kit has the mini same reference guide.

There is no "look book" or instructions on how to apply the shadows but the eyeshadows are arranged in such a way as to take the guesswork out of coordinating the shadows while still letting you be creative with your application technique.

No because they are organized by quads, so you don't really need it. Use the lightest as a highlight, the darkest as a liner, the second darkest in the crease, the second lightest as a lid shade. My rules for blush, if I have a warm eye I do a cool cheek to offset. If I do a cool eye, I do a warm cheek. Play, have fun, mix and match, get creative. You don't nee a cheat sheet though, because the set up is the cheat sheet. Does that make sense? I hope so.

I THOUGHT it did, but mine didn't come with a guide, like some other palettes did. Maybe my box was missing something. It's easy to figure out, though. Most of the quads have complimenting shades... you can mix what you'd like, too.

I believe they are amazonian clay shadows. Amazonian clay tends to hydrate dry skin, and absorb excess oil. It is a very nice ingredient. Not sure I would describe them as hydrating, though they certainly are not dehydrating. When I think of hydrating, I think of eye creams and gels. You may want to try tarte cream shadows (found on the Quality Value C'whatever C stands for channel)

I would definitely NOT recommend this, especially for aging eyes. These shadows are actually a lot like Wet N Wild eyeshadows, if you've ever tried them.

-a lot of the matte shades that are not well-pigmented
-TOO MANY shadows with little pigmentation and too much glitter. And by glitter, I mean chunky, sparse sparkles that manage to get everywhere.
-a few nice shades, but nowhere near enough to make it worth the purchase.

Like the other person mentioned, these shadows are very chalky--not good for aging eyes. If you don't already, I would recommend the Naked palette by Urban Decay--there are a lot of richly pigmented, sooth mattes, shimmers, etc, in very wearable colors. I would also recommend the Too Faced palettes (i.e. Smoky, Nude, Naked, etc)

Why are there such big differences in reviews?
Some reviewers seem to love this palette whereas others clearly hated it. I can't tell - are these shades pigmented or not? Are some people using them with primers and others not? How does this compare to the trueblood palette in terms of pigmentation?

Defintely use a primer! The colors are pigmented i did a swatch of every colorbefore i bought it on the back of my hand with no primer and the colors went on with great pigmenta.tion and were true to the color in the box. I only say definitely use a primer because it'll make it last all day

I was disappointed in the shadows- like other reviewers, I found very little color payoff, so I returned it. I think that because the ingredients are (mostly) natural, the texture and color payoff is compromised compared to some other brands. Perhaps also because of this, as ken mentioned, consistency/color payoff varies from palette to palette, though I can't be sure.

I just think that it's a "love it or hate it" product- it would be a good idea to try it before buying it, since it looks SO wonderful, but can be a disappointment, depending on your taste. Worst case, Sephora has an excellent return policy. I also suggest looking into some other palettes- Urban Decay Naked Palette, LORAC, Smashbox... which you might end up liking more.

The particular palette I got was horribly pigmented, but I've seen swatches from others that show very pigmented shadows. In mine, about 5 of the shades wouldn't even swatch at all - it's very very weird. The best I can reason is just extremely inconsistent quality but I can't say for sure. It's really bothering me though!

I think it's best if you just try the shadows out on your own. It really depends how much you like it. The Tarte brand is not at all comparable with other brands. You can compare Too Faced and Urban Decay because they are similar in texture, but Tarte is not, so you need to go in person to test it out.

It's available online now, but you probably won't see this in stores until late October or early November since this is a holiday item.

However, since the price of this item is over $50 it ships free anyway so order it online while you can get it! This is sure to sell out fast!
