I was doing my last-minute shopping before leaving L.A. and as always, I needed to stop by Sephora. I burnt almost all my shopping money with glosses and mascaras last week so this week, I was looking for something worth my left-over buck. I'm not a huge fan of palettes as in my experience, I only get to use 2 colors in the set. But I just couldn't resist getting myself this Tarte Femme Fatale eye palette! I felt that all the colors were wearable and great for traveling. You can go au naturale with the shell and taupe shades while you can also bump your look up for a cocktail night with your girlfriends using the darker navy and moss shades. I tried the each shade on the back of my hand to test the pigments and yes, they are pure and strong. Plus, the case has a magnetic base that allows you to refill and reuse, with gold-studded metals that can make it pass as a sophisticated party purse! For ten enchanting shades, an eyeliner and a double-ended brush, I surely used my $44 wisely!
