Review: Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette


Hello, lovelies!
I want to take the time to have a chat about one of my new favourite purchases! I got this pretty little thing while out and about in New York last month.


Tarte's Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye and Cheek Palette comes in a gorgeous large round case, with a snake on the top that has a purple jewel standing out the top of it's head.


Inside, there's a big mirror, and eight eye shadows and a blush. There are four shimmery shades, one of which is about three times the size of the others, and similarly for the matte shades.


Going clockwise from the matte shade at the top, it's Park Ave Princess, Don't Turn A-brown, Tan-gled Up In You, Up To No Gold, Plum Away With Me, Make A Mauve, Bare To Explore and Champagne.

The eye shadows themselves are smooth to apply and while they are quite pigmented, you don't have to be afraid of picking up too much in one go. They are also very easy to blend, which is essential for me!


The blush itself is Unleashed, and it's a pale pink shade. While not a shimmery shade, like the rose golds I've been reaching for recently, it's reasonably muted and a colour that is quite suitable for a number of different skin tones. It's quite a natural shade that adds a bit of warmth to your cheeks. 


There's actually quite a bit of versatility in the shades, and I have used a number of different mixes of shadows over the last week and I'm happy to report that this can translate from day to night with a bit of manipulation.

All in all, an excellent purchase, and definitely not one that I regret! I believe that this is limited edition, and retails for USD$38.

Have you tried anything from Tarte before? Would you use a palette like this one, or do you prefer having a separate blush?
