Good MORNING! I have a review of some Tarte Modern Eyes that I got a WHILE back when their lip stains were 50% off. I got these because they were a good price, they had good reviews, and they made my shipping free 😉
I bought this 2 pack when it was on sale for $19….that was such a good deal considering the single Golden Beige one is $14.
Here are Tarte’s product claims: These shadow liner duo’s are supposed to be creaseless and waterproof. They are made with maracuja oil thats is supposed to help replenish, rebuild and brighten skin.
They contain a good amount of product, I demonstrated that by opening one all the way to show you in the photo below:
Golden Beige/ Bronze Duo:
This one has a shimmery golden shadow stick with a bronze (brown) liner. The shadow in this one is very pigmented and soft. I usually dislike shadow sticks because I hate having to press on my eyelid…it just creeps me out and doesn’t feel good. Luckily with this one, it glides on smoothly and you don’t have to press hard. The liner is pretty nice too, just be sure not to extend it too much when applying because I feel like twist up liner are more fragile…”Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.” 😉
Plumberry/ Plum Brown Duo:
This duo was a little harder to work with. It was slightly harder to spread onto the lid and felt a little drier so you can’t really blend it. It kind of just stays where you put it. It was also a little less shimmery on my lid which disappointed me slightly…I wanted a shimmery plum (waahhhh!) The liner is a dark brown/purple.
Overall I was really happy with my purchase. I felt like the pigmentation and wear time was great, even though the plum was a little drier I still like it, but the gold is defiantly my favorite! (I think I’ll just use a shimmery base next time for the plum.)
Do you have any favorite Tarte products? What are your thoughts on eye shadow sticks?
Hope you all have a great day! Thanks so much for reading! xoxo, Kristina
