Daygleam

Tarte Daygleam Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though the texture was forgiving and a lighter hand (or less dense brush) could be used to achieve sheerer coverage if desired.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “12-hour” wear that has a “buildable glow.” I would not describe it as a buildable glow; it was quite metallic regardless of sheer or opaque application. The more I blended it, the smoother the sheen became, but it did still accentuate the look of my skin’s texture at some angles when worn at medium or greater coverage. I think this shade would be particularly nice for someone who finds a lot of coppery highlighters to be too dark or red-toned, as this is one of the lighter ones I’ve come across (conversely, the lightness would be beautiful on deeper skin tones while only adding slight warmth). The consistency was smooth, dense but not stiff or too heavy to work with, and blended out with ease. It wore well for ten hours before turning a little patchy.

Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 3

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 3 Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes nine warm-toned, neutral eyeshadows with all but one being highly shimmery/metallic in finish. As the majority of shades were packed with shimmer, most of them appeared lighter in practice than they looked in their respective pans.

Of the three volumes released thus far, the formula in Vol. 3 is incredibly dense and contains rather chunky sparkle. It was harder to work with and would be better used with a slightly dampened brush, which helped to smooth and spread the eyeshadows, or else applied with fingertips, where the warmth of the fingertip seemed to help make the eyeshadows more maneuverable (which the brand recommended). Fingertips were good for spreading the product over the lid, but it seemed to waste a lot of product as it did not transfer as much product onto the lid as with a brush (it was stuck to the fingertip). With this type of denser formulation, I tend to use flat, synthetic brushes (like MAC 242), which I find does a better job of picking up and applying the formula than very soft brushes.

The formula was a lot less versatile, and the shade range was more limited here–the palette’s composition seemed lacking in contrast–and will be most suitable for someone who likes very shimmery, light neutrals and likes this type of dense formula.

Round-up: Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick

01/04

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick  

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick  

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick  

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick  

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wearing and moisture-rich, full-coverage lipstick” that is available in 24 shades. The range is exclusive to Sephora/Tarte at this time. The consistency of the formula has an incredibly smooth, creamy feel to it and has enough substance and thickness to it that it adheres well to the lips and usually doesn’t pull into lip lines. I felt like the formula felt slightly more emollient initially and “dried” a bit to more of a satin-to-cream finish after a few minutes (but not a true dry down, as it wasn’t transfer-resistant!). The majority of shades were very pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable to wear with light to moderate hydration over time, and lasted between four and seven hours on me.

A few of the lightest and darkest shades weren’t as pigmented or were less flattering on the lips compared to more of the medium shades. There did not seem to be any added fragrance to it (smelled slightly waxy), and I didn’t notice any taste.
