tarte Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette

First up, I’m excited because tarte has released a new eye and cheek disk. Longtime readers of my blog will know that I love these palettes! (see the Aqualillies and Coral Crush palettes). I love this and have to have it!

Rainforest After Dark PaletteSephora, Tarte


Inspired by the deep orchid hues of the Rainforest at dusk, this palette has everything you need to create sultry, sophisticated looks to take you from day to night. Each pigmented, flattering shade is infused with colored clay, which naturally color-corrects as it helps control oil for longer, truer wear. This next generation ingredient from the mountainous regions of Brazil brightens, evens and soothes skin while the velvety formula glides on and delivers rich color without settling into fine lines or wrinkles.

  • rose clay: soothes skin around the eye area
  • vanilla clay: helps control oil to keep pigment in place all day
  • gold clay: maintains gentle skin balance and moisture


New limited-edition and iconic shades inspired by sultry Amazonian adventures include:

  • bare to explore (pink beige)
  • make a mauve (plum mauve)
  • plum away with me (dark plum)
  • up to no gold (gold)
  • tan-gled up in you (tan)
  • don’t turn a-brown (dark brown)
  • unleashed (nude rose blush)
  • champagne (highlighter)
  • park ave princess™ (bronzer)

tarte Be charmed Limited edition Lash Curler

The charm is definitely cute on this, but I prefer my lash curlers to be cageless! I can’t imagine going back to one in this style.

I’m definitely interested in trying the smoothing primer! It makes a lot of promises.

Tarte best in faux  lash extending fibers

I have issues with wearing lash fibers because they irritate my contacts. Somehow they get under them and then my eyes end up sore. I tend to avoid them. It’s too bad, because they give amazing results! If you don’t have sensitive eyes I’m willing to bet you love this.

Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending FibersTarte


Achieve all the drama of lash extensions at home with this revolutionary eye routine. These lightweight, black sculpting fibers seamlessly build on your own lashes to achieve a naturally voluminous, luminous look in 3 simple steps.

Finally, lock in your bombshell stare with a top coat of mascara – it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3! 

Tarte Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector

Man, they name everything BB and CC these days! This comes in 2 shades – light-medium and medium-tan. It’s got some promising ingredients with the licorice extract, hyaluronate and squalane.

tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick

I’ve never had much luck with eye primer sticks, but I’m curious to see how tarte’s works. Their primers have all been great in my experience.

Discover tarte’s newest primer innovation with this universal CC eye primer stick! Infused with color-correcting and skin-nourishing colored clay, this smoothing eye primer absorbs excess oil on the lids, offering a neutral base for the perfect eyeshadow application. The lightweight waterproof formula works overtime to address the appearance of redness and discoloration, while providing a gentle skin balance and instantly brightening the delicate skin on the eyelid. Simply prep the lid with the easy-glide, neutral pencil tip prior to makeup application for better wear and truer shadow payoff that can last for up to 12 hours. 

tarte Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel

I’m really excited to try the tinted brow gel. It comes in taupe, medium brown and rich brown. Rich brown is the shade I wear. You know I love their brow mousse and I use it more than any of my other brow products. This is vegan!

Using the convenient wand applicator, precisely frame brows with a simple motion. Colored clay and peptides work to condition and smooth brows while reducing surface oil to keep pigment in place all day long. 

tarte lights, camera, lashes™  precision longwear liquid eyeliner

I’m curious to see how this works since the regular eyeliners from tarte are nice, plus the Lights Camera Lashes mascara is great.

I’m personally the most interested in trying the Rainforest After Dark palette, the Timeless Smoothing Primer, the Colored clay CC Eye Primer Stick and the colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel.

      Wow, I really like the looks of that pallette. Very different colors from “the usual” stuff. I like those muted looking colors and will have to go check this out!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        There’s a gold and deep purple, that’s what drew me in :)

    • Tea Matešić Bugarin

      The palette is amazing! I have yet to own Tarte products (not availble in my country and not delivering to it either). The primer sounds promising. Looking forward to your review!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Hopefully they’ll be available to your country soon!

      I’m super curious… who sells a cageless eyelash curler? I haven’t seen one recently, but am dying to try. I like that Tarte stepped away from their norm for fall and went with a new genre of packaging. Looks great!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        UD makes mine, but I don’t think they sell them anymore.

    • http://beautyorsomethingcg.wordpress.com Beauty or Something

      I need this palette in my life. So beautiful!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It’s a gorgeous design.

    • Mahdi Martin

      What a lovely collection! I particularly love the palette. I think Tarte’s eyeshadow (and bronzer) is the only product of theirs I haven’t tried.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I love the design and the theme! I hope the shadows are gorgeous too. I’ve found their shadows to be hit or miss.

    • Mardi

      Ooooh I hope the liquid eyeliner is good. I still haven’t found a CF one as good as the Stila one.

    • Lidi

      I’m soooo excited about the clay tinted brow gel, I’ve been waiting for a cruelty-free dupe of benefit’s gimme brow FOREVER and no one else seems to have that tiny wand! I hate that everyone else uses mascara size wands, which is not good for the precision needed for brows. I currently use the Sonia Kashuk tinted brow gel but I cut about 3/4 of the wand off to make it easier to work with. I’ll finally have an alternative. I wish sephora had this in stock already, I’m going to be stalking their website!

    • trumpette

      One of everything, please!!

    • rachlovespenguins

      Goodness yes to all that golden plummy goodness…. I can hardly wait to start seeing reviews of that palette! And it’s really nice to finally see another brow product with a tiny wand. I’ll have to try it when I’m done with my tube of Benefit. :D

    • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

      Oh so many new goodies! Excited! I want to try a lot of them!!!

    • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

      I’m sorry – is that a wooden compact with a gold snake that has a PURPLE JEWEL in its head? Because Tarte needs to take my money for that right now. (assuming I can hassle a US friend into actually picking it up for me).

      GOLD SNAKE. PURPLE JEWEL. augh! It even has purple shadows inside!!!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I am just afraid that they’ll be more brown than purple for the purple colors

    • meggosaur

      Do you think the shades in the palette will work with cool, fair skin tones? I am looking for an all-in-one palette for travel and this one is beautiful!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I haven’t seen the palette in person and swatched it, so I can’t say with 100% accuracy, but in the pictures it looks neutral with a few warm shades, so I would say yes. However, my favorite palette for travel is the UD Naked Basics palette, which is all mattes, and you might like that better.
