Hi loves! I'm so happy to share with you guys this Tarte Radiance From The Rainforest 6 Piece Collection (£70.00). I can already tell you I love this set and I'll link it here, so you can check it out for yourself. You can choose what shade foundation you want, there is 8 different shades available.
The set contains their Eye & Cheek Palette (0.7g x 6 - eyeshadows, 5.6g - blush), Silk Amazonian Clay Eyeliner in Black (0.2g), Rainforest of The Sea Water Foundation in Fair Natural (30ml), (5ml), in Black (5ml), in Rosy Mauve (3.5g) and Double-Ended Complexion Brush.
Lets start with the Double-Ended Complexion brush. I like one side is bigger for foundation and the other is smaller, which I have been using to blend in my concealer. Both sides are intense with bristles, which makes blending out cream products so easy. I also like to use it to blend out the edges of mu blush and bronzer.
I absolutely adore the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Water Foundati in shade Fair Natural. Its with SPF15 and all their products are formulated with out parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic fragrances and gluten.
It comes in glass bottle and has a dropper to get the product out. The formula of it is thin and it give me light to medium coverage. The shade Fair Natural fits my complexion perfectly! Its surprising, because I always have problems finding my match. There is no scent to it, so everyone can enjoy it. I love how light weight it feels on my skin and it blends out effortlessly and works well with my Bourjois concealer.
After 9 hours of wear time I did notice I need a touch up. The foundation started show through my pores on my nose and my other imperfections. I have oily skin and I do need to blot my skin through out the day, but I don't mind it as long I can keep the coverage and 9 hours is a long wear time. So I am happy with it and I want to try the concealer as well.
Next in the set is the palette, it contains 6 eyeshadows (4 matte, 2 shimmery) and a matte blush. The formula of the eye shadows is amazing, which I expected. I already own two of their eyeshadow palettes. I have been using mostly the matte shadows for my daily makeup. I love nudes and its perfect palette to take with me on the go. I had this set with me when I went to Rome and it was perfect for easy, simple eye makeup. The shadows blend out easily and everything fits together perfectly and these also work well together with other powder shadows.
The top row contains only matte shadows and you can see the picture of the swatches down below. The first shade from left is Tide and its matte cream shadow. I have been wearing it all over the lid when I do all matte eye look. Next to it is Sunset, which is perfect crease color. Its a light brown and next to it is Sandcastle, which is dark matte brown and I have been using it to deepen up the crease and also to darken up the lash line.
On the picture above you can see the second row and it contains one matte and two shimmery shadows. The first one from left is Reflection, which is gorgeous nude shimmery shadow and I use it to highlight my inner corner of the eye and also I like to apply it on top of other shadows. It gives gorgeous effect to any eye look. Next is Horizon, which is medium brown shade and has matte finish. I use it mostly in the crease, if I want a bit darker crease. The last shadow in this palette is Driftwood and its the other shimmery shadow in the palette. Its dark brown shadow with bronze shimmer to it. I have yet to use it, but the formula of it feels the same then the other shadows have.
The staying power of the shadows is fantastic! I did use primer under the shadows and I do it with all the eyeshadows. These didn't crease on me and stayed on all day with out the color fading. I'm so happy with the shadows!
The blush is their Amazonian Clay Blush in shade Mystified, which has matte finish. Its flattering dusty rose shade. Its perfect for daily wear and the staying powder is amazing as well. It blends out easily and I like I can build it up for stronger color payoff.
Next is their in Rosy Mauve, which is pigmented creamy lipstick. You can see the swatch above and its on the right side. The formula is infused with coconut oil. I love how creamy it is and it glides on lips so easily. It has a sweet vanilla shade, which I love. Its not too strong, but definetly something I noticed when applying my lipstick.
I find the color to be perfect everyday pink. Its bright, but not too much and the formula is gentle to the lips. It feels comfortable and it doesn't dry out my lips. It also doesn't bleed out my lip lines or transfer anywhere, which is something I'm afraid when wearing a so creamy lipsticks.
The wear time is not too long, which I did expect, because of the formula. I still have it on after drinks, but the color is not as vivid and also I'll lose the glossy finish. After having lunch or dinner the lipstick is totally gone, but I don't mind reapplying it.
Next item in the set is their Amazon Clay Silk Eyeliner in shade Black. Its richly pigmented, creamy liner, which doesn't need sharpening. I love liners, which I don't need to sharpen :) The liner also comes with a smudger, if I want more smoky look and the liner blends out easily.
I have used it on my waterline and also done winged out liner. Both ways this gem stays on all day with out fading or loosing the intense black color. Its become my favorite liner and I love the formula. Its so creamy!
You can see how pigmented the liner really is down below and it stays like that all day. I swatched it on my hand when I first got it and it didn't go anywhere through out the day and I did wash my hands. I'm so impressed with this and I want to add more shades in my collection. It hasn't irritated my eyes or caused me any discomfort.
The last item in this set is their Opening Act (eyelash primer) together with the Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara in Black. I like the mascara is double ended and I have the primer one side and the mascara other. Its so convenient packaging and perfect for traveling.
These two items together give my lashes so much volume, length and it stays like that all day. Their is no clumping or mascara crumbling down my face. The mascara also promise to condition the lashes and also protect them.
The brushes of both the primer and the mascara are classic mascara brushes. I do prefer this kind of brush more then the rubber ones. I feel like I get better effect with this kind of brush and also it doesn't hurt my eyes when applying it.
This is it! I'm really happy with this set from Tarte. Its perfect for traveling and everything has amazing quality and worked out for me really well. It makes me want to try out even more products form the brand, so let me know what I should try next from them in the comments below :)
Down below you can see GRWM video, where I use most of the products in this palette. It has been my everyday makeup look, which I have been all the time the past week.
