Rainforest After Dark Palette

One of the things I purchased when I went shopping with MJ a few weeks ago was Tarte's Rainforest After Dark Palette

At $38, I was a little hesitant to purchase the palette, especially since I had just bought several items at Ulta and got an eye shadow palette while I was there. But I loved the blush, and in fact, before I saw it in store I was loving the blush color. Then MJ pointed out that it was a really good value, since the blush appeared to be full sized, which would run $26 on its own, and there are 6 shadows in the palette, which could be the the price of the palette on their own. Plus, I really wanted to check out Tarte's bronzer, Park Avenue Princess. 

I have to say, I absolutely love this palette, love it. I love the bronzer, highlighter and blush trio. The fact that they are all in one spot also means I'm more likely to contour my face on a regular basis instead of just on special occasions, it's more convenient! 

The shadows are gorgeous, and it comes with a card that shows you how to create two different looks from the shadows offered. The picture below is the day time look. 

I seriously cannot praise this palette enough, I highly recommend it! 


  1. So pretty! I'm really interested in trying out this palette!

  2. Beautiful colors for you! You look great!

  3. You look so pretty - your eyes came out great! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for this palette in the store :)

  4. Girl!!!! It looks great!!!!! I knew those colors would make your eyes pop! Definitely a good choice, aren't you happy I'm such a bad influence? <3

  5. I really love your look. One thing I struggle with is that I think I am pretty awesome at makeup but have a tendency to not wear it. Some people would call that brave, but I don't do it to be brave. I just don't make it a priority. I should though because I love it! I know I would look so much better with some blush on. It's amazing how blush and eyeshadow can make a huge difference without having to do the whole eyeliner thing.

    1. Thanks Jen! Most days I don't wear a lot of makeup either. I'd prefer to stay in bed the extra 15 minutes! haha

  6. I love this!!! I am going makeup shopping this weekend and can.not.wait! BY THE WAY, I got your email - just haven't had time to respond. You should see my's officially scary.
