Oooooh I do love a new make up collection. Especially when it contains everything I need to create a flawless look and is jam packed full of good-for-you ingredient’s. Tarte are launching a beautiful collection of cosmetics in time for Christmas. It features a Limited Edition Rainforest Of the Sea eye & cheek palette, amongst other items.
|Tarte Radiance of the Rainforest Ocotober Qvc Tsv|
This exclusive Radiance of the Rainforest 6 piece collection, comes in a fab gold coloured make up bag and is a perfect gift for Christmas. Personally, it is a perfect gift for me hahaha, but then I am a make up addict. The Rainforest of the Sea range is a proprietary blend of marine flower extract and algae, that aims to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth and soften the skin. This Hypo-Allergenic formula also contains vitamin E that acts as an antioxidant, and helps defend our skin against free radicals. Just like putting great skincare on our face at the same time as applying our make up! The items included in this gorgeous collection are :
|Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation & Brush in shade Light Neautral|
This water based foundation feels so lovely and light on my dehydrated skin and does not dry it out at all. I love that it has a buildable coverage which is perfect as my skins needs change throughout the seasons. When I need extra coverage I can use the smaller side of the brush included, across areas such as my nose and cheeks to cover my pigmentation and then buff outwards with the fluffier end of the brush. I use about four drops (depending on coverage required) and it always looks like my own skin, but healthier. This foundation lasts me a couple of months and I wear it often as I love how it looks and feels so natural whilst giving me the coverage I require. I really rate this foundation. It feels beautiful, looks gorgeous and gives a lovely long lasting, non patchy coverage. This leaves the skin feeling hydrated thanks to the 20% water content.
The foundation is available in some new shades : Fair Neutral, Fair/ Light Neutral, Light/Neutral, Light/Medium Honey, Medium/Honey, Medium/Tan Sand, Tan/Sand and Deep Honey.
Limited Edition Rainforest of the Sea Eye & Cheek Palette –
|Tarte Limited Edition Rainforest of the Sea Radiance palette|
This lovely rectangular palette has a great weight about it making it feel luxurious from the moment you pick it up. Featuring the Rainforest of the Sea design on the palette in a lighter more lilac shade and edged in a gold colour, this pretty palette also contains a great sized mirror. Inside are 6 lovely embossed shadows and a huge embossed blush (which I also use as a shadow). This is a great day to night palette and fits perfectly into the bag included. A lovely nude palette of cool and warm tones that features 4 matte shadows a matte blush and two shimmer shades, these will look fab on all ages. The rainforest of the Sea technology infused into the Amazonian Clay makes these very creamy and easy to blend shades. They do not crease or dry the lid and are very pigmented. Of all my Tarte palettes this one had no fall down at all and I didn’t really need to tap my brush too much before applying the shadow. With exception (in my opinion) of the blush,The colour payoff is beautiful. With the blush I had to really rub my brush in it to pick up colour, however it could be my palette only. So do let me know.
The shadows included are Tide, Sunset, Sandcastle and Horizon in Matte, then Reflection and Driftwood in Shimmer. The matte Blush is in the shade Mystified and is incredibly flattering on the skin.
Foundation Brush –
|Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Brush & Foundation|
This foundation comes with a beautiful double ended foundation brush. The brush looks so pretty in the matching purple and gold tones to the foundation lid. The synthetic hairs are so soft and blend the foundation in beautifully. The angled end allows you to add and build the coverage of your foundation, getting into the contours of your face, eyes and nose. The larger slightly fluffier end allows you to buff the foundation out. A lovely looking brush with a great weight and density.
Silk Amazonian Clay eyeliner in Black –
|Tarte Amazonian Clay Silk Eyeliner Black|
Personally i never wear a black eyeliner unless it is on the top of my upper lashes. To wear black on my lower lash line is just too harsh and i prefer to use shadows there instead. However, if you love a black liner or like to wing out your upper lid, then this is great. You can either use it on its very tip for a tight, thin line, or sideways for a fuller, fatter line. The colour is completely smudge proof from the moment it dries and literally lasts all day only coming off with make up remover. Comes with a smudger on the end to soften the line, but if you gently pull the smudger off there is also a little sharpener.
Double ended mascara in Opening act Primer & Lights camera lashes –
|Tarte Opening Act Primer & Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara|
This cute double ended wand is perfect for your handbag or when travelling. Opening Act primer conditions and defines your lashes before you add your favourite mascara. It is ophthalmology tested and according to Tarte adds 952% increase in lash volume!!. You can use this under any mascara, so if you have a mascara you love that lengthens, but you find it doesn’t add the volume you are looking for then give Opening Act lash primer a go. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It really is quick to use, just apply one coat to your lashes which will turn white, then apply your favourite mascara and you will notice the difference. The other end contains Lights, Camera, Lashes which is a great, velvety Amazonian clay mascara, in the blackest of black. Not only does is thicken lashes but it lengthens them too. Claiming to instantly increase lash volume by 330% all I know is that when I apply it, my lashes get that false lash look which i love. This is my everyday go-to mascara. Each end also has a full size mascara wand.
Coconut Oil Lipstick in shade Rosy Mauve –
|Tarte Coconut Oil Infused lipstick in shade Rosy Mauve|
This lipstick is absolutely gorgeous! If you have never tried these before from Tarte, you are in for a treat. Infused with coconut oil , not only do they smell like holidays but they are so nourishing, hydrating and comfortable on the lips. A real easy to use, day to day colour, or you can apply it as a base and add an additional colour over the top.
|Tarte Coconut Infused Oil in hade Rosy Mauve|
Either way this Nude rose is incredibly flattering on all skin types. I absolutely adore it, plus it looks beautiful in the gold tone case.
This collection also comes in a fab gold tone Tarte embossed make up bag which holds the kit and much, much more really easily. It is also lined beautifully inside.
My thoughts on this collection – This really is an all in one kit that compliments each item perfectly. Suitable for all ages and skin types and colour this collection is amazing value. The limited edition eye & Cheek palette is outstanding and fantastic for easily moving from a day into an evening look. Definitely one for the Christmas list. I absolutely adore this vegan, cruelty free, skin kind make up brand.
