Product Review -- Tarte Tarteist Pro To Go Amazonian Clay Palette

Last week, I reviewed the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette, which is a small palette that's ideal for travel.

Unfortunately, the shadows in the palette are rather lackluster so while it may be convenient to toss in your bag, it's not particularly noteworthy otherwise.

Tarte's Tarteist Pro To Go Amazonian Clay Palette is a similar concept -- the palette is small enough to toss in virtually any bag and many pockets, though it doesn't contain as many shades or as much product as the Too Faced palette.

However, despite only offering 0.9 grams of product, the Tarteist Pro To Go features pretty fantastic shadows so for me, it's a much better option.

The palette comes in a small rectangular cardboard compact. It has a gold and black design that is similar to the Tarte Pro Amazonian Clay Palette. There is a small mirror on the inside that's really only good for touch-ups.

Inside, there are six shadows: Drive, a matte light tan; Stylin', a matte dark brown; Boss, a metallic bronze; Hype, a metallic gold; Crisp, a matte mid-tone orangey brown; and Dominate, a metallic wine.

Tarte Tarteist Pro to Go Palette
Like the large Tarte Pro Amazonian Clay Palette, the shadows in the Pro To Go have a sweet chocolately scent that I personally love.

All of the shadows are lovely -- they're soft, creamy, and easy to blend. They are also nicely pigmented so they're very easy to work with. It does seem to me to be the same formula for the mattes and metallics that's in the larger Pro Palette, so if you like those shadows, you'll probably going to enjoy this one as well.

From l. to r.: Drive, Stylin, Boss

From l. to r.: Hype, Crisp, Dominate
The color selection is certainly limited -- it's all warm tones that fall in mid-tone to dark shade range.

That said, I still love the palette.

Drive is a lovely transition shade, while Crisp is a gorgeous crease shade. Stylin' works well as a liner or to deepen up the outer corner. I like to use all of the metallic shades on the lid, though Boss and Dominate work well in the outer corner too.

Dominate is probably my favorite shade. I like to dust it over the edge of whatever crease shade I use with a duo-fiber brush to add some subtle color there.

All in all, I think this palette is a pretty great value for $23, and look forward to taking it with me on my next trip.

You can find the palette on the Tarte website, Sephora, and Ulta.

Have you tried the Tarte Tarteist Pro To Go Amazonian Clay Palette? What's your favorite small palette to take on the go?
