You all know about my love of all things leopard as well as my inability to pass by anything that has that print. For Fall 2012Tarte is jumping on the bandwagon of stripping my wallet bare by releasing the small but mighty Call of the Wild products.

Of course, I purchased both items (see the Amazonian Clay Liner), but this post will be dedicated exclusively to the Eyeshadow Palette ($36).

The eight shades in this palette run both cool and warm, and can be mixed up to create a variety of looks.

  • Meow, a shimmering sun-kissed gold shade
  • Jungle, a shimmering chocolate bronze shade
  • Call, a rich petal pink shade
  • Instinct, a shimmering champagne ivory shade
  • Wild, a shimmering plum shade
  • Lynx, a soft matte greige shade
  • Primal, a soft matte deep gray shade
  • Roar, a matte navy shade

I thought most of the shimmering shades were nicely pigmented and easy to use. Wild just may be my second favorite eye shadow color of all time (behind taupe, of course). The only two shades out of the eight that were disappointing were Roar and Instinct. Roar was rather chalky and didn't smooth out easily. Instinct didn't transfer well to the eye and I had to really pack it on to get it to look the way I wanted. These shades would both be better off used wet, or maybe Roar as a liner.

All three eye looks below have the Tarte Amazonian Clay Liner on top, MUFE Aqua Eyes in 0L, and Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara.
