Review, Swatches : Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow palette

Hi Guys,

Hope you’re having amazing weekend!ūüĆĻ

Tarte has recently released their Rainforest of the Sea collection and I was lucky to get my hands on at least one of the product of this collection РEyeshadow Palette. This is the most gorgeous eyeshadow palette I have ever seen. This palette is for people like me who prefer bronzey kind of look!

I have become a huge fan of Tarte’s packaging ever since they released¬†Tarte Bling It On Blush Palette.The packing on Rainforest of the Sea¬†looked so beautiful that I wanted to to keep it¬†untouched, in the mint condition!:D¬†

As Tarte describes, these eyeshadows are Velvety and not to forget, extremely smooth and buttery. These shadows are quite hydrating. They are easy to apply and blend. This palette has all the goodness you can think of.

Pigmentation: This palette is a bomb when it comes to pigmentation. All the shadows are highly pigmented. They are all quite opaque. Quality of these shadows are remarkable.

– Staying power:¬†It lasts for good 6-8 hours. So far I haven’t faced any creasing with this palette. I am still playing with it though. I will keep you guys updated.


РPackaging: I am sure by now you would have guessed how much I am loving the packaging of this palette. Palette comes in peacock blue colored box with the brand name, collection name and ingredients on it. Palette comes in a circular shape. Palette top has this pretty blue, gold and purple coloured peacock feathers. Bottom of the palette is gold in colour. When you open the palette you see a mirror at the top and the shadows in the shape of the wheel. Center of the wheel has the name of all the shades which is very cool. I would definitely give them A+ here.

  • Shireen

    This palette is my kind of shades, I love that it’s a round shape too, I have nothing like it in my collection. While I need another neutral palette as much as I need a third leg, I might buy this just because the palette is round.

    I’m all for a pretty shimmery eye shadow so the fact that it isn’t too matte wouldn’t bother me. The colors are beyond pretty! I agree, that packaging is so nice. It’s something I would keep even after I’m done using up all the product haha
