The Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette contains six eye shadows, one blush, one contour/bronzer and one highlight powder.
The Showstopper Palette comes in a gold circular package with a purple snakeskin design on the lid. The palette has a large mirror on the other side of the lid. The only complaint I have with the shadows is that all of them, except for the dark brown, are mid tone shades, so there is not a huge variety. However, the colors are beautiful and they all have a soft texture and amazing color payoff. All three cheek products also perform great, which is nice to see from a multi use palette like this one. The Champagne Pink highlight gives a very nice glow to the skin, and shows up nicely even on lighter skin. Due to the pink tone of the highlight, it may not be the most flattering on everyone, but it could always be used as an eye shadow instead. I also quite enjoy the Park Ave Princess bronzer. It does not look orange or muddy on the skin and is rather easy to blend out. The Fame blush performs just as nicely as the rest of the Amazonian Clay blushes from Tarte; it has great pigmentation and lasts on the cheeks longer than your average blush. This palette is a great choice for travel, as it is small and contains quality eye shadows and cheek products. So far, I have found my self reaching for this palette quite a bit!
