TARTE Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette | Swatches and Chat!

If you read my post on the Tarte Be Mattenificant palette, you may recall me saying that as soon as I saw photographs of it I knew in my heart that I would simply love it. Well... history has indeed repeated itself, and it would appear that I am now the proud owner of the Tarte Rainforest After Dark Cheek and Eye palette. And oh my... she is a beauty! 

Now being the good girl that I am ( sometimes ) I hadn't laid a muddy finger on this palette until today, for the purposes of pristine photography of course. As such, this post is not a full review, instead just a lot of oooohhing and aahhhhing and swatches, and me telling you that you maybe, possibly, really might need it in your life as well...

So...come and have a look inside...

tarte rainforest after dark coloured clay eye & cheek palette talk 'bout purdy!!

Swatched in natural light, as the shades appear in the palette 

L-R bare to explore, make a mauve, plum away with me, up to no gold, tan-gled up in you, don't turn a-brown

These shadows are just beautiful...stunning!! Just as creamy and smooth, and silky to touch and swatch as the matte palette that I own. A good mix of matte and shimmer shades, and options for both everyday, and more dramatic eye looks... I can't wait to play with this! Look at that gold! Look at that plum! Look at all of them! *goes and makes a cup of tea to calm down*

L-R Champagne (highlight) Park Avenue Princess (bronzer) Unleashed (blush)

The highlight, Champagne has a beautiful pale gold undertone... so pretty! I have always wanted to try Park Avenue is beautiful! It is showing up a touch warmer in my photograph than in real life, and though it is matte it has a subtle luminosity...I think it will be gorgeous on the skin! Unleashed is a beautiful pink blush shade with slightly warm undertones...the sort of shade that you can wear with any makeup look. It feels like silk... can't wait to get this on ma cheeks!!

So there you have it lovelies. I apologise for my overuse of the following adjectives; beautiful, silky, creamy and smooth.

I purchased my palette on eBay, from a seller in the US. I believe she only had two of the palettes, and both have sold. I will check again, and let you know if she has any more listed. If you would like the seller's name, leave me a comment below and I will add it to the post as an edit.

You girls in the US are so lucky to have Tarte!! It is really hard for us poor Aussie girls to get a hold of!

So, are you tempted? Have you already purchased this palette? Do leave a comment below and let me know what you think of it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
