I’m back with another beauty from Tarte Cosmetics Double Duty Beauty collection. The Classic Courage Eye & Cheek palette contains 6 warm eyeshadow shades and one neutral rosy blush. This palette is cute, compact, and comes with an inspirational message on the outside of the packaging. At $28, these palettes are a must have. I admit, I have a soft spot for Tarte palettes, and usually end up with most of them. One thing I love about my Tarte palettes is how useful they are. Typically, you might only use a few shades in most palettes but Tarte has a knack for putting great wearable colors together for everyday. I’ve used my Tartelette in Bloom palette almost daily since I got it. I’m beginning to wonder why I don’t have the original Tartelette. (Do I need it??)
While I absolutely love the Classic Courage palette, I’ve used it 3 times and I hate to say but the shades are a bit to warm for my skin tone. I don’t have Star Power, but it looks to be more of a neutral/cool toned palette. I have used the Classic Courage palette on my Mom, who is warm toned and the colors are stunning on her. The stand outs from the palette are Rosy Outlook, and Lucky Penny. Honestly, if you love rose gold and rosy copper shades, you need this palette! I don’t have anything like either of these shades in my eyeshadow collection.
Here’s what Tarte says about the Classic Courage and Star Power palettes:
Take your full face of fabulous from day to night with this full face eye & cheek palette. With two separate versions for neutral and smokey looks, each palette includes a full size blush and five shadows in mattes and lusters to create a range of looks to flatter any complexion. The pigment-packed formulas are powered by Amazonian clay to help balance skin so your makeup stays put, and each travel friendly palette includes a special message to inspire you to take on the day or night with confidence.
Star Power shades include:
- Glimmer Eye Shadow (pearl)
- Twilight Eye Shadow (grey)
- Stiletto Eye Shadow (black)
- Ladies Night Eye Shadow (light grey)
- Sparks Fly Eye Shadow
- Star Power Blush (rose)
Do you have either of these palettes? What do you think about all the new Tarte releases?
