Tarte Call of the Wild Amazonian Clay 8-Shadow Collectors Palette-Review, Photos, Swatches


 Company/Brand Claim: -

For Skin Type: All

Packaging: High quality plastic coated case with animal print borders. Looks like a wristlet. Love it!

Product Coverage: Highly pigmented

Formulation: Shimmer to Matte

Texture and Feel: All of the eye shadows in the kit have a smooth texture. Lynx is kind of chalky.

Colors:

Meow: Medium bronze with shimmer.
Jungle: Deep shimmery brown
Call: Semi matte deep nude with a pink undertone
Instinct: Sheer shimmery highlight shade
Wild: Deep shimmery copper
Lynx: Matte sand with a nude undertone
Primal: Matte deep ash grey
Roar: Deep blue with a black undertone
      
Fragrance: None

Application: I found these difficult to apply with a sponge applicator. A brush or fingers are the best tools to use.

Result: I bought this palette for many reasons. Firstly, I fell for the colors especially Roar, which didn't do justice to my expectation as it is more black than the blue I was looking for. They seemed super pigmented, which all of the shades undoubtedly are and I'm glad that claim stood to its mark.The colors are all dark are limited to shimmer to matte finish but that doesn't limit the looks you can create with this baby. Jungle and Wild look kind of similar to me but that's just my humble opinion. There's mild fallout so a tissue is needed around. the shimmer shades blend well while the mattes take a little effort. The shades are suitable for every skin tone and best for neutral to bold looks for various occasions. But remember, it is not waterproof.  Apply wet for a bolder effect.

Staying Power: 4 hours generally. May stay longer if applied over primer.

Times Tested: 4 times use
 
Cons: Expensive

Anything Else: Comes with mirror inside.

Made In: USA
