Buried Treasure

Tarte Buried Treasure Holiady 2017 Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features 10 shades in the “new Rainforest of the Sea formula.” Per Tarte, the formula is supposed to be blendable, “velvety,” and “primes lids for payoff.” They have a very smooth, velvety texture with moderate powderiness and a tendency to “melt” on the lids, which meant shorter wear due to noticeable fading between four and six hours. That same powderiness also resulted in color that sheered out a lot and tended to make the lid appear drier, and it was harder to layer the mattes on top of each other without then lifting whatever was underneath (or nearby). There was potential here, but unless applied over a tacky base, it was a miss.

Tarte Skipper Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Skipper Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Skipper

Skipper is a light-medium, purple mauve with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was so powdery that the color started to sheer out and fade within 15 minutes of application. The color itself faded significantly by the five-hour mark. It was hard to blend this shade with the deeper mattes (I attempted to use it as a transition shade), as it lifted darker colors away.

Tarte Snorkel Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Snorkel Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Snorkel

Snorkel is a muted, medium orange with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a very dusty texture that sheered out as soon as I started to blend it out. Even when I patted it onto the lid, it looked like my eyelid feasted on it within five hours of wear.

Tarte Booty Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Booty Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Booty

Booty is a peachy brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency in the pan, but it was prone to fading shortly after getting applied–it even looked a lot lighter applied than it did in the pan. All that good pigmentation sheered out as soon as I started to blend out the edges. It wore well for five hours on me.

Ingredients

Tarte Coconut Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Plank Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Plank

Plank is a soft peach with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the texture was very powdery and prone to darkening as it sat on bare skin due to the natural oils and the powdery texture/finish. It lasted for five hours from what I could tell.

Tarte Dive Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Dive Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Dive

Dive is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It good color payoff, but the coverage disappeared quickly in practice as the color blended out and had a ton of fallout (just diffusing the edges, even gently!). This shade stayed on well for five hours.

Tarte Fin Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Fin Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Fin

Fin is a medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The pigmentation was opaque, but there was just no holding onto that pigmentation without using a tacky base, and even then, it had a tendency to go on unevenly as it stuck more than some places than others. There was a ton of fallout during application, and the color itself managed to stay on for four hours before starting to disappear.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Nylon-12, Polypropylene, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Diisostearyl Malate, Isododecane, Stearyl Dimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Octadecene, PTFE, Hexylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Triolein, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone , Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Algae Extract, Gardenia Taitensis Flower, Citric Acid, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Tarte Nauti Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Nauti Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Nauti

Nauti is a deep, plummy red with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It started out with opaque color coverage, but it was hard to blend out the edges without losing a lot of its intensity. The color itself faded and dulled noticeably within five hours of wear.

Tarte Coin Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Coin Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Coin

Coin is a medium-dark copper with warm, gold undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation that applied decently to the lid, but it started to fade and disappear within a few minutes–it was like all the shimmer started to vanish and made it appear less and less metallic. On me, it lasted for five hours.

Tarte Palm Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Palm

Palm is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was so soft that it was dusty, almost loose, and difficult to apply without tons of fallout and the color sheering out to almost nothing. It lasted for five hours on me.
