Tarte Cosmetics is out to make sure we upgrade our beauty routines for the spring and summer seasons with a warm, bright eye shadow palette. The brand launched a lemonade-inspired eye shadow palette in collaboration with the bubbly, bright YouTuber Adelaine Morin!
According to Morin, this palette has been in the works for one year and it's finally here to help us serve those juicy, bright, and refreshing looks we love. If you've already racked up on the previous spring palette releases like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette ($42, Sephora) and the ColourPop Just My Luck Palette ($12, ColourPop), then you may want to make room for this lemonade-inspired beauty coming from Tarte Cosmetics.
Spring has sprung, and the eye shadow looks are about to be even more popping!

The palette is clearly meant to help us create a nice mix of warm-toned looks this summer. I love that there's such a balance between the matte and shimmer formulas so that one doesn't overwhelm the other. These colors are also bold enough to work for springtime yet chill enough to work for different everyday looks. Standout shades in the lineup include Law of Attraction (yellow shimmer), and Boss Lady (matte burnt orange).

If you're into the idea of a lemonade-inspired palette but want to stick to the drugstore price range, then your Revelist friends are here to get you right.
Look no further than the Maybelline Lemonade Craze Palette ($10, Target)! Like the Adelaine Morin palette, it has a mix of mattes and shimmers. There are also different pinks and beiges. Additionally, the palette features three brown shades that are slightly darker.
The palette is also lemon-scented!
Check out this comparison with swatches from both palettes.
It's a comparison you cannot deny. Talk about a nearly perfect dupe! There is almost no look you can create with the Adelaine Morin palette that you can't make with the cheaper Lemonade Craze version. We all get to make lemonade-inspired looks no matter what our budget is.
You can also pull your lemonade eye inspiration from the queen shadow blender herself, Nikkie Tutorials!
Nikkie Tutorials used the Coral Punch as a base shade and then Berry Ice for the transition shade. She topped her eyelids with Strawberry Lemonade and Citrus. For her outer corners, she applied the Ice Pop shade. To brighten up her inner corners, she dabbed a little bit of the Main Squeeze shade.
Now who's ready to sip on lemonade and serve up lemonade-inspired eye makeup all spring long?
We're all about to look like cool glasses of sweet, sweet lemonade, and really, what better way to celebrate spring and summer than that? Get those brushes ready, then grab your favorite lemonade palette. Spring has sprung, people. Makeup is bright and playful (yet wearable) again!
