Review and Swatches: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol 2

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol 2 Review and Swatches
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol 2
The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea eyeshadow palettes have been on my radar for awhile, but I never picked them up for some reason. Truthfully, I can't buy all the palettes on my wishlist. It would be nice, but not budget friendly. This palette was included in a Boxy Charm and I was so excited to get it. This retails for 47$ in Canada, and there are three volumes released at this point. The first palette is more neutral, and the third is more rosy toned. The Volume 2 palette is cooler toned.

This palette includes 8 shades, 2 matte and 6 shimmers. The formula is different from Tarte's amazonian clay eyeshadows. It's more cream to powder and denser in the pan. Initially, I found the matte shades to be hard to pick up but I wasn't expecting this cream to powder formula. It had dip my brush in and built the color but it wasn't really an issue. The shimmers applied well with a small concealer brush but I went in with my finger as well and topped it up on my lid. The pigmentation was good, and I do like this palette. It lasted all day without an unusual amount of fading. The formula is not my favorite, but it worked. This palette claims to be crease free, but I don't normally have issues with my eyeshadows creasing.

Tarte always has beautiful packaging, and I really do like the circular palettes. They're easy to store and they feel good in your hand when you're applying your eyeshadows. The pan sizes are very nice and laid out well in the palette. I would like to pick up the first volume. It has more of my every day shades. 


Have you tried this palette? What did you think?

    1. I'm trying to stick to buying two palettes and that's it this month. I'm hoping to get the Tartelette Toasted and the Morphe 35o 2 palette.

  7. I had a similar experience with another Tarte palette. I could work with the formula but it wasn't the best! I'm really hankering for the Amazonian Clay palette.
