Hi Guys! oh my gosh I am so sorry I have taken so long to get this up! I have had so many DMs on my instagram @beauty.in.bold asking when this will go live! honestly I have had such trouble getting these right pictures, I’ve decided I’m going to put this up anyways! wanted to do a quick review of the Tarte Highlighting palettes. I have all 3 here and I am going to tell you which you should buy! Tarte has a single highlighter which I also have but today I wanted to “Highlight” the palettes. Keep reading!

You guys know I love Tarte Cosmetics,  I go on about it all the time. As far as I am aware Tarte has 3 highlighting palettes. The First Being the Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle palette. This is my LEAST favourite and it makes sense, it’s the first Tarte has clearly worked on improving the formula. The second palette is the Tarteist Pro Glow Palette and the third is the Newest, The Skin Twinkle Palette vol.2.

RAINFOREST OF THE SEA SKIN TWINKLE LIGHTING PALETTE – $60 AUD

The Rainforest of The Sea Skin Twinkle Palette was the first palette, this one comes with 2 large highlights and one translucent pressed setting powder in the middle. The highlights in this palette are gorgeous, more natural and they leave a nice sheen rather than a metallic highlight.

This is probably for someone looking for something a little more subtle, you can see in the swatches below it’s just a gentle sheen. The Translucent powder is great for setting under the eyes also. I do find that the highlights in this palette are a lot different from the ones in the newer two palettes.

TARTEIST PRO GLOW PALETTE HIGHLIGHT AND CONTOUR PALETTE – $75 AUD

The Tarteist Pro Glow palette is my favourite. It comes with 4 Shades of highlight, a bronzer and a cream contour shade. ALL gorgeous shades.

I have found these shades in comparison to the shades in the first palette are a little bit more chunky to touch but apply really smooth and are
Much more metallic than the shades in the last palette. I also adore the Cream contour and the Bronzer shade, this palette has such a nice selection and is my favourite

RAINFOREST OF THE SEA SKIN TWINKLE LIGHTING PALETTE VOL.2 – $65

This palette is the newest instalment to the Tarte highlighting collection. This is my favourite out of the Skin Twinkle Palettes, the packaging is pretties and the highlights are a little nicer. These highlighters seem to be the same formula as the Tarteist Pro highlighters. I think if you just want highlighters and no contour or bronzer this would be the one for you.

OVERALL

My favourite is the Tarteist Pro Glow Palette, It has 4 highlighting shades and the Cream contour and bronzer. I love that its multi purpose and I love the formula. I think if you want a subtle highlight and a setting powder the original skin twinkle palette is the one for you. If you just want highlighters and four beautiful ones then Get the Skin twinkle vol.2 palette.
