Hi everyone! As I mentioned last week, I will be taking a spring blog break but before I do, I have a review of the new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow palette! It’s available online and in-stores and yes you guys, it’s beautiful.
Here is what the case looks like when it’s closed-very fun and pretty.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette
Described to, “define and defend lids from everyday aggressors with this eye shadow palette. Introducing plush shades in a velvety formula, they’re powered by tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea™ complex, formulated to hydrate and balance lids with a creamy powder is that is never drying or chalky.”
Creamy and easy to blend
Great pigmentation on darker shades
Little to zero fallout
Variety of looks can be created from natural to smokey
Long-lasting (with primer)
No true matte shades
Didn’t experience the hydrating aspect
A bit pricey $34
Lighter shades take a bit to build up color
Overall: I really love this palette! It’s a bit smaller than I initially thought but the shadows are a good size so no problem there. The shades are creamy, easy to blend and the fallout is little to none. These are definitely smoother than my Urban Decay Naked 3 shadows. They last all day on me but I always use a primer. I will say that I didn’t find any true matte shades as Sand and Cove still have a bit of a sheen to them but nothing overly shimmery. The lighter shades, like Seashell and Mermaid take about 2-3 passes to build up a discernible color while the darker shades have opaque coverage in about 1 pass. These don’t have any pop of colors which I don’t mind since I love neutral/bronze shades and this is right up my alley.
Here are some swatches
Sand- Ivory (this shade blends in with my skin, lol)
Reef- Copper (my favorite shade!)
Abyss- Dark brown
That’s it for this week readers. I’ll be back March 21 with new posts so please stay tuned for that. 🙂
