In the recent Tarte Haul Birthday Edition post I mentioned that I had redeemed a $50 off coupon code on a couple of products but when I published that post I hadn’t received the order yet. I have now received the order and am the proud owner of the limited edition Color Your World Color Correcting palette and the brand new Rainforest of the Sea Filtered Light loose setting powder.
The Filtered Light setting powder is a new product in the Rainforest of the Sea collection. It contains the Rainforest of the Sea complex which means it hydrates your skin, it has anti aging properties, and it’s going overall just do your skin some good. It is also tinted yellow to brighten the skin and it doesn’t create flashback. It blurs lines and pores for a smooth finish and it smells like vanilla which I love. It also doesn’t contain talc which means it won’t clog your pores. Upon opening it, I thought the packaging was super cute. I always have a problem getting enough product out of the components for loose powders and I had that problem with this one too. It is a nice powder when I was able to get product out but most of the time I ended up getting frustrated and just using my pressed powder.
The Double Duty Beauty Color Your World Color Correcting Palette (wow that’s a long name) is a little smaller than I was expecting. The packaging is really cute. It’s formulated with skin invigorating ingredients like coconut, cucumber and caffeine so like all products from Tarte, it’s makeup that is also great for your skin. It contained a yellow for brightening, a peach to correct under eye darkness, a green to neutralize redness, a cream contour shade, a matte highlight shade and a cream champagne highlight shade. After I used the matte highlight as a base for my eye shadow to color correct my eye lids. The contour shade was actually way too orange so I don’t touch that. All the other colours serve their purpose. The cream is pretty dense so even though the palette as a whole is small, so I don’t think I’ll use it up too quickly. It blends pretty nicely.
