I have been eyeing the Tarte Energy Noir palette since it first came out. I finally took the plunge and ordered the palette. I must say this palette is seriously gorgeous. The packaging is amazing. It comes in a box that looks exactly like the palette.
Tarte Energy Noir is a full face eye and cheek palette. The palette is also great for creating a cool day look and sultry sunset look as well. Too me I find these shades perfect for fall.
The shades in the Energy Noir palette are:
- Full Moon (Matte Beige)
- Charged Up (Silvery Taupe)
- Dark Drive (Matte Dark Chocolate)
- Stoned Unturned (Matte Taupe)
- Up Too Slate (Smoky Plum)
- Misty Muave (Matte Muave)
- Power Plum (Matte Dark Plum)
- Lunar Eclipse (Matte Black)
- Crystal Spark (Champagne Highlighter)
- Unearthed (Pinky Nude Blush)

My thoughts on the palette:
Like I said earlier in my post the packaging is gorgeous and it feels solid. It also comes with a rather large mirror too that spans the full width and height of the palette. Super convenient!
Eyeshadow: The colors are very pigmented. The shadows are incredibly easily to blend together. I’d have to say my favorite shades are: Stoned Unturned, Charged up and Up Too Slate.
Blush/Highlight: I didn’t like the blush unfortunately. You can’t see the shade on my skin unless I layer it. The highlight is super pigmented and very noticeable. I love using the highlight.
The set allows you to create neutral daytime looks, all the way to smoky, more dramatic looks. The eyeshadows, for the most part, are quite pigmented and smooth textured, and not to mention extremely blend-able and long-lasting.
