I waited until the very last day to order something during the Sephora $20 off $50 purchase promo and these beauties are why. I was holding out hope that the new Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots would appear on Sephora’s site during the promotion and my wishes were granted. I saw these in a few YouTube videos and I was totally blown away by the pigmentation and high impact shine. I haven’t felt this drawn to a product in a long time.

The Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22 US) is a mirror effect loose (but not that loose) pigment eyeshadow that gives the high sheen of a cream or gloss but in a powder formula. These aren’t messy at all. You don’t need brushes. These work best by using the warmth of your finger to help the formula melt and blend into the skin. They have 80% pearl pigment so they have incredible colour payoff and shine. So insanely gorgeous. These are the perfect lid shades for an eye-catching look.

There are 6 shades available and I opted for the two shades I considered most “wearable”.

Top Yacht is the most perfect champagne shimmer for the lid and inner corner. Stunning. Stunning. STUNNING.

Park Ave Princess is a breathtaking metallic bronze. This is the most gorgeous bronze shadow I have ever seen. This one is even more metallic than Top Yacht, believe it or not. This makes for them most stunning warm bronze eye. I love wearing it paired with darker shadows for a bronze smokey eye, or with subtler tones for a warm glowy bronze look.

Swatches in natural light:

Top Yacht blended out and full impact / Park Ave Princess full impact and blended out

I highly recommend these if you want a full impact metallic shine in your shadows. I recommend wearing a good eyeshadow primer to ensure these last without fading and creasing and make sure you actually tap of your finger (like a brush, I know that sounds crazy!) because they are a loose powder formula and very densley pigmented they are a bit crumbly so you’ll end up with extra on your finger that can create fallout.

Have you tried these yet? What is your favorite shade?
