Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I am in between moving houses and with work I have been really busy but don't worry I am back on top of my blogging game! Today I decided to review an eyeshadow quad that I have really been enjoying this summer : Tarte Beauty and the Box in Secret Garden. It has four beautiful colors : Sprout, Goldenrod, Fern and Vine. It has been in my everyday make up for about a few weeks now and it is lovely. Tarte has really been growing on me the past few months! I have been loving that they are natural and still such amazing quality.
Lets talk about the packaging! All of Tarte's Beauty and the Box eyeshadows come in these cute little square boxes with patterns on them. The Secret Garden one is a light purple with a giant purple, pink and white flower on it. There packaging is made out of cardboard and I know a lot of people freak out over cardboard boxing but I've had mine for over a month and it is still going strong. It is also part of their ego friendly, natural vibe which I think is great! All four colors are right next to each other on the box but that doesn't bother me because each color is wide enough for a brush to fit perfectly.
The Colors! The four colors in this are: Sprout, Goldenrod, Fern and Vine. It is a green and gold set of colors and I think they do an amazing job enhancing brown eyes! The first thing I thought of when I saw these colors was Ivy from Batman. She always wore golds and greens and Uma Thurman as Ivy looked amazing! The pigment of these colors is nice. It isn't as amazing but it isn't bad either. It can take a little bit of building however their lasting power makes up for it. They actually last me all day long and never seem to crease. I'm not much of an eyeshadow primer person because I've never had a creasing problem and putting on two primers just seems like too much work for me ( I'm lazy). Fern is my favorite out of the four. I just think it's the perfect green for shadows.
The next one I really want is the Envoke the Smoke which looks like a great quad for a nice smokey purple eye!
