I love this palette, it has become my go to palette for everything now, especially when traveling. The colours are beautiful and it has a blush which is gorgeous! and a highlight and bronzer as well. The palette allows you to go from soft during the day to bold and smokey at night. Not to mention the casing is awsome!
This Palette is my travel companion. I have everything I need from matte to shimmery shadows, bronzer and blush. It can be used for day time to night time glam. For the price, i think its an amazing deal and the quality is perfect. The only thing missing are your brushes and lipstick and you're all set.
This palette is perfect for lighter skin-tones in my opinion because of the sheer pale colors but they're buildable and include several universal shades that will work on many skin-tones. The shadows are well pigmented in a mixture of matte and shimmer's. They run from semi-sheer to rich coverage with slight creaminess and the shimmer shades have no tacky glitter. They have a decent wear which is extended by applying a primer base and there's hardly any creasing that shows up. The dark plum and the gold are gorgeous! Both of those colors are rich and have a high shine to them. The highlighter really illuminates my face and is very sheer with no glitter and the bronzer surprisingly is soft and light. The pink blush is also very soft and sheer adding just the right hint of color. This is packaged inside a lovely purple box with a faux snake skin print and the overall palette compact mimics a tree bark from the rainforest. The snake print on the cover is done in a bright metallic gold foil and the snake eye has a beautiful purple jewel embedded on the front. Inside you'll find a large mirror which is the size of the palette at over four inches wide. That's huge! Also included is a leaflet on how to create a look. Overall it's beautifully made, the colors are sultry and sexy with an amazing formula. Great for gift giving or perfect for yourself. I think I'm in love with this more for the compact's golden snake and jewel eye design!
The Rainforest After Dark Palette from tarte is a fall essential. This palette includes a bronzer, blush, highlighter and 6 eyeshadows in shades of purple, taupe and brown.
As always, the quality of tarte's products are outstanding. Each colour is buttery soft and has great pigmentation. The bronzer is a great shade for light to medium skin tones and is very easy to blend with no orange undertones. The blush is a very nice shade for fall, a subdued pink-mauve. I'm not a lover of highlighters, but this one is just right with a warm tone and only a hint of shimmer. Unlike most palettes where at least one or two of the eyeshadow shades are a dud, all of these are a hit and work well together for looks for both day and night.
In terms of the packaging, the case is beautiful sturdy plastic with a large mirror. The hinge is firm so the mirror is usable without needing to be propped up.Not too clunky for travel and your purse, but not flimsy either.
This is my go-to palette for fall and pretty much the only thing I've been reaching for in the past few weeks.
