Tarteist pro glow contour palette

It may have become popular in the beauty world a few years ago, but contouring is a trend that is here to stay.

Ever since the 80s makeup technique came back into fashion, the shelves have been awash with new contour products every week, making it hard to decide which one to go for.

But it turns out there’s one contour kit in particular that is winning everyone over on the internet.

Tarte’s Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight & Contour Palette came in at the top of Rank & Style’s best contour list, Byrdie has pointed out.

Tarte’s palette was highlighter for its high number of positive user reviews, the amount that has been sold and the buzz created around it when it was released.

So what makes it so good?

Well, the palette includes six shades; two for contouring and four to highlight. But the difference here is that Tarte has carefully created these shades to mimic real shade and light reflection to achieve a flawless yet natural look.

Additionally, the formula contains Amazonian clay to keep shine at bay and has been dermatologically tested, meaning, as contour kits go, this one will be kind to your skin.

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette ($45.00 for 1.06 oz.) includes four highlighters, one cream contour, and one powder contour housed in a soft, velvety black cardboard palette. The formula of the powder products was denser, particularly for the highlighters, so there was not a lot of excess powder kicked up in the pan, and it made me less concerned about powder getting into the cream contour, but it’s definitely a possibility. The four highlighters were frosted to metallic, and they will be most suitable for someone who likes a shiny, more metallic highlight (rather than a subtle one). The cream contour has a more shadowy look and feel to it, while the powder contour is warmer and more bronze-like. The weakest product was the powder contour, as it was dustier and not as blendable as the other shades. It’s a good palette if you like highlighting and contouring and don’t already have an arsenal of options in your posession already.

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette and PRO Glow to Go Palette – Review and Swatches

This is a portable highlight and contour palette that features three shades; two highlighters and one contour colour. It comes in a thin black velvet like cardboard palette. I’ve been reaching for this palette a lot lately for the convenience of having both the highlighter and contour shade in one tool. Both highlighters have a frosted finish and I love the intense highlight it gives to my cheeks without any fading. They have a soft and smooth texture that blends well and doesn’t emphasize pores. I like to combine the two shades as ‘Burst’ is a little on the powdery side. ‘Chisel’ (I love that name choice, very fitting), the contour shade has a matte brown finish with warm undertones. It works well on my skintone but it is not very buildable; however it is pigmented enough that you don’t need to build upon it. You can shop this palette at Sephora, Tarte and Ulta.

Shades: (via Tarte.com)

  • Gleam (pearl highlight)
  • Burst (shimmering sand highlight)
  • Chisel (matte contour)
