Hey Readers 🙂 Today’s review features the Rainforest After Dark Palette from Tarte Cosmetics.
Can we just stare at this packaging for a minute? Who isn’t going to toss out the box?
This palette is part of the 2014 Fall Collection, therefore, it is limited edition. If it’s something you’re interested in– hurry before it’s no longer available. This palette is an eye and cheek palette. It features a highlighter, bronzer, blush, and 6 eye shadows.
bronzer– park avenue princess (matte)
– bare to explore
– make a mauve
-plum away with me
-up to no gold
-tan-gled up in you
-don’t turn a-brown
I applied “up to no gold.”
Then, I applied “tan-gled up in you on the lid” onto the crease and blended the 2 colors together.
After, I applied “don’t turn a-brown” onto the outer v & blended some more.
Lashes are “ABBIE” from Flutter Lashes.
For this look, I applied “bare to explore” all over my eye.
Then, I applied “make a mauve” on the lid.
After, I applied “plum away with me” onto the outer corner & blended into my crease.
Eyeliner is QUILL from Lime Crime.
* Overall, I’m really loving this palette. I’ve got fair skin & the colors really pop on me– especially that gold. I just love neutrals and golds! However, all the colors are pigmented, therefore, they will look beautiful on all skin tones. This is a travel friendly palette and so convenient since it includes 6 shadows, a highlighter, blush and bronzer all in one sleek compact! There is amazing color payoff. These colors are easy to apply and build. The plus side to this palette and rare when compared to other palettes is that I DID NOT get any eyeshadow fallout. Crazy, right? I didn’t use a primer to apply the swatches on my hand, but I always apply an eye shadow primer on my eyelids before any make-up application. It guarantees long lasting and true to color shadows on your lids. The only thing that really shocked me was the blush. It’s a pretty color, but wasn’t long wearing for me. It could’ve just been a bad day for my skin– super hot and I had spent the day at Disneyland.
I’m loving the sturdy packaging with a built in mirror. It’s a very versatile palette. I truly believe that you get what you pay for and in this case, even more. I’m loving this palette, therefore I definitely recommend it! So go to your local Sephora or Ulta, check it out in person if you’re on the rocks about this palette. If you’re in love already, you can order online http://tartecosmetics.com 🙂 I hope you love it as much as I do!
PROS: travel friendly, pigmented, affordable, beautiful packaging!
CONS: blush was not long-wearing, but still pretty.
