|Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol 2|
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.
