Like Too Faced, Tarte Cosmetics really satiates its Tartelettes with loads of limited edition products and new launches. The brand's newest Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 2 Palette is super unique for a variety of reasons. In addition to its circular packaging and a rad AF cover design, the eight-pan palette features limited edition shades in cool tones and the brand's inimitable, creamy powder formula.
The palette is currently on sale at the Tarte site. It will set you back by $36. It's so cute and totable. It's not just another eyeshadow palette, either.
Here's why it's cooler than most.
The Rainforest of the Sea complex in the moisture-packed formula is a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts. So, what do they... do? Oh, just reduce the appearance of pesky fine lines and wrinkles, in addition smoothing skin.
But the shadow formula is also super independent — that is, you don't need a primer or a brush to get it to stay put or to apply it. You can dab and smudge with your digits. You can use a tool if you prefer.
The formula is part-cream, part-powder, light-reflecting, and lasts. Four shades are matte, while the other four are lusters. You can wear them wet or dry. Because #Choices.
Everything you need for a brown smoky eye is... at your fingertips. Like... literally.
The shades inside the palette are as follows: Pearl (white shimmer), Conch (off white), Sunset (yellow gold), Marina (caramel), Seaside (chestnut), Siren (dark brown), Breezy (shimmering slate), and Riptide (steel blue). So it's a varied mix of hues. Here, Vol. 1 and 2 are pictured together.
The packaging is darling, as well. If you are on the hunt for a palette that travels well and that hosts totally wearable colors for any skintone, you will want to scoop this one up right away. Since you don't need to pack it with a brush or a primer, it's even more travel-friendly than you thought! It's portability goes beyond its size.
