When it comes to using makeup, experience has proven to me that quality is everything. I love when makeup lines launch new lines because I can’t wait until they are released so I can test them and see what all the buzz is about. All I can say is that Tarte has absolutely wowed me with their new Rainforest of the Sea Collection that launched at the end of February. I have tried everything in the collection, from the boosting mist and cleansing gel, to the foundation and eye shadows and I am so impressed with the formulas and finishing with the products. First of all, the packaging is to die for and I feel Tarte illustrated a fresh, exotic design that fits so perfectly with the Rainforest of the Sea name. Secondly, the line is complex for hydration, environmental defense and brightening, radiant finish .
Tarte has also included brushes in their Rainforest Line and they are just as great as the products. They glide on the makeup effortlessly and feel incredible on the skin. The foundation and concealer are so lightweight yet provide full coverage, which is ultimately my favourite combination. There is nothing worse than having a foundation that is full coverage and it feeling heavy and oily on your skin. Tarte’s foundation melted into my skin and lasted all day which is so key in a foundation. The eyeshadows in the Rainforest eyeshadow palette are so pigmented and creamy and have all the neutral colours you need to create a soft everyday look or a smoky eye evening look.
Now this was a new one for me – part of this collection includes a Wipeout Colour Correcting Palette. It has 6 colour-correcting colours that help counteract whatever skin colour you are trying to cover. This palette helps correct discolouration and create a balance to your skin tone. My skin has always been different shades and I can honestly say this helped create a smooth and one toned colour to my skin. The entire collection, is great for beginners or professionals. You guys seriously need to try one or all of these products – I am so impressed with the whole line!
Everything is available on Sephora.ca and I’ve linked all the products above. They are carrying the whole line and offer free shipping over $50!
