Review: Tarte EmphasEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow in Shimmering Taupe

I have to say that these little pots are hard to find. I got mine in the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous collection, but when I started putting this post together I wanted to check out where else you can get them... uh nowhere, just QVC. Seemed odd to me, but after a bit of scouring around, it turns out to be entirely true.

So, what is this little QVC exclusive pot? Well, it's perfection. It's true. I really wasn't expecting to like this all that much, little own love it. Save for MAC Paint Pots, I'm not ususally into cream eyeshadows. Luckily for me these are pretty similar to Paint Pots and totally gorgeous. The shadow is creamy, super pigmented, blends with ease and dries to a perfect waterproof, smudge proof shadow that stays put for hours- no primer required. Can you tell I like it?

"Why is it different: Micronized Amazonian clay intensifies color pigments while working to nourish skin, reduce surface oil, and improve overall texture for smooth application. Thanks to a botanical blend of natural plant waxes, the shadow glides on smooth and forms an impermeable layer that protects against sweat, tears, and creasing for hours of wear time. Not only is it super long-wearing, it works to infuse delicate eyelids with Amazonian clay, aloe leaf extract, beeswax, and vitamins A and E. The richly pigmented shadow is formulated without parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, or phthalates."

The shade that I have is Shimmering Taupe, a really pretty taupe with a good amount of sheen, but not glitter, fine shimmer. The swatch above shows more brown based than the shade actually is, it does have a more gray lean in person.

I can't say enough about this product. If you are into Paint Pots you'll love these. The only downside is the fact that they are exclusive to QVC and the shipping to Canada is a bit pricey. These sell for $23 each, so you might want to pick up a few to make the shipping worth while.

Have you tried these? What did you think?
