Review: Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette, Volume I

As you can probably tell by the picture below, this palette is very well loved. It’s one that I have recommended to so many of my friends and use pretty much every day in some way or another.

Park Avenue Princess Matte Bronzer

BRONZER_Fotor_Fotor_Collage

You’ve probably heard me rave about this bronzer before and it’s for good reason! This magical bronzer shade seems to match so many different skin tones and isn’t too warm that it can’t be used as a contour yet it’s not too cool that it makes you look muddy. I use this as an all over bronzer or as a mix between contour and bronzer. This is my absolute favourite bronzer of all time and I’ll definitely be purchasing the single pan when I feel finish off this set.

Blusher

This blush, like the bronzer, seems to work on a large variety of skin tones! For me, it gives the perfect “pinched cheeks” look, which I love!

Highlighter

Ooh baby this highlighter is nek level! It has a slight golden undertone but still works on pale girls like me. The shimmer is so fine that it gives you such a nice lit-from-within look and you can build it up to look like a gleaming supermodel or dust it all over to make you radiate from within.

I think Tarte did extremely well with accommodating this palette to a lot of different skin tones. No, it won’t work on girls with darker skin but hopefully they’ll come out with another in the near future. This palette may be sold out but it’s sister, the Parke Avenue Princess 2 Palette, has the exact same bronzer and highlight with a slightly different, still natural, blush shade so I would definitely check that out! It’s perfect for a beginner at makeup who wants one palette to do everything or someone who, like me, loves good quality, no fuss makeup.
