Recently I had the opportunity to try out the Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Palette. It’s a gorgeous limited edition palette of 8 full size shadows from TarinaTarantino.com. Each color is inspired by beautiful flowers.
About the Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Palette
Presenting our Limited Edition Floriculture Palette! These eight full-size shadows have a velvety soft texture and intense color payoff that will create gorgeous makeup looks for day and night! Quality ingredients assure long wear and can be applied either wet or dry.
“On a trip to Europe I discovered a forgotten treasure dating back many years: delicate hand-painted resin flowers in an endless rainbow of colors. These exquisite flowers became part of my jewelry collections and have now inspired my Floriculture Palette. These eight full-size shadows have a velvety soft texture and intense color payoff that will create gorgeous makeup looks for day and night.” -Tarina Tarantino, jewelry designer and makeup artist

These shadows are very similar in texture and pigmentation to my other Tarina Tarantino eyeshadows (Emerald Pretty, Fantastical, Jasper & Agate Duo). They’re easy to apply, very easy to blend, and they last all day on primer for me. With the exception of Poppycock, all the colors are satiny / pearly. They have really nice pigmentation, though overall this reads as a soft, romantic palette to me. The colors are very easy to wear.
I adore the pinky purple packaging! The palette is lightweight and it’s perfectly sized for travel. It’s also pretty sturdy.
To me, this is a mostly neutral palette with a few pops of soft color. The orange and green are very soft and wearable shades. The brightest shade, Poppycock, is really a stunning purple, but it’s easy to use as an accent shade if you’re afraid of bright on the lid. Deep Dahlia works as a nice alternative to black for a liner.
Overall, I think this is a lovely romantic palette from Tarina Tarantino.
- Cruelty Free
- Beautiful, pigmented eyeshadows
- Good amount of product for the price
- Lots of neutrals, so if you’re a fan of brights this may not be the palette for you
