Tarte Fall ’14: Rainforest After Dark

tarte-rainforest-after-darkTarte’s fall collection is all about the basics: skin, brows, and eye definition. There are a few sultry, rich hues thrown into the mix as well. Limited-edition woodgrain-style details adorn their signature eye and cheek palette and special-issue lash curler. This collection is heavy on CC Colored Clay products, which are packaged in their signature design.

tarte-rainforest-paletteRainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette ($38, LE): Colored clay pigments help correct skin issues and self-adjust as you apply them. To me, that makes more sense in a skin product (like a foundation or a primer), but I wouldn’t mind having it in eyeshadow. Included in this palette are the following eyeshadow shades: Bare to Explore (pink beige), Make a Mauve (cool shimmery mauve), Plum Away With Me (dark shimmery plum), Up To No Gold (shimmery gold), Tan-gled Up In You (matte taupe), and Don’t Turn A-Brown (rich cocoa brown). Palette also features Champagne highlighter, Park Ave Princess bronzer, and Unleashed (nude rose) blush.

tarte-timeless-primerTimeless Smoothing Primer ($39): Blurring and filling technology are combined with a formula that melts into skin for a fresh, flawless face base. Apply this under makeup to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, visually shrink pores, and extend the wear of makeup. Vitamins C and E, peptides, and green bean extract all help smooth, hydrate, and firm.

best-in-fauxBest in Faux Lash Extending Fibers ($19): This tube of lash-lenghtening fibers is accompanied by a deluxe sample of Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara (but can be used with any mascara). This is supposedly the shortest route to lash extensions, without the hefty pricetag. You swipe on a coat of mascara, then a coat of fibers, then another coat of mascara. The result is supposedly long, full lashes. I bought this a few weeks ago and promptly returned it. The fibers made no difference on me, and only ended up falling off (almost immediately) and irritating my eyes. I wouldn’t recommend for contact lens wearers.

tarte-tinted-brow-gelColored Clay Tinted Brow Gel ($21): See details and my review here.


tarte-under-eye-correctorColored Clay CC Undereye Corrector ($24): A full-coverage corrector that battles dark circles and uneven skin tone in the undereye area. Caffeine helps reduce puffiness and licorice extract brightens skin. In two shades, Light-Medium and Medium-Tan, to fit most skin tones.

tarte-cc-primer-stickColored clay CC Eye Primer Stick ($21): Colored clay nourishes and evens skin tone as it primes lids for eyeshadow. Suitable for all skin types and tones.

tarte-precision-liquid-linerLights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liquid Eyeliner ($20): This triple-black formula is applied through a paper-thin felt tip, making it easier to draw on straighter, smoother lines. The cushioned handle helps you get a better grip for more control.

tarte-be-charmed-curlerBe Charmed Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler ($19, LE): Tarte’s signature lash curler gets updated with a dangling gold snake charm.

The collection is available now online, and at Sephora, Ulta, and specialty retailers.
