Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Concealer Review

Tarte has been one of my favorite brands for a while now, as I am sure you are well aware of. I rave about every product I have tried from them, so when I saw their new Rainforest of the Sea collection I was so excited to get my hands on it! I had been using the Maracuja Concealer for probably two years, so I definitely felt like it was time to change things up. Since I haven't tried a new one in so long, I decided it was time to try something new.


Along with the new concealer, I got a Beauty Blender as well! I was definitely very late to the train, but I'm so glad I finally decided to get one, because it is seriously the best makeup sponge I've ever used, and really helps to make my concealer look flawless.

I decided to get the nude beauty blender because I didn't want the pink one to start looking dirty really quickly. I'm really glad I went with this one because it doesn't look discolored at all yet!


 Okay, can we just talk about the packaging?! The whole collection has the prettiest boxes and bottles. They ombre coloring with the gold lettering is so gorgeous and gives off the impression of high quality right from the start.

The bottle itself is also so pretty. The applicator is a little off-set wand, so I just apply it directly to my under-eye area and blend it in with my damp beauty blender. This product goes on very easily, and blends out so well. It also doesn't crease at all throughout the whole day, and lasts for 12 hours! It doesn't advertise that, but mine has been lasting for the whole day while I wear it. I set it with my Elf translucent powder and it does not budge.

Only one layer is needed to cover my dark circles, which is really impressive! My dark circles are very dark no matter how long I sleep, which is very frustrating. I can never seem to get rid of them naturally, so my only option is to cover the suckers up. This product does that flawlessly, though, so I'm very happy with it!

The only "bad" thing I found about this product was the smell. When I first opened the bottle, it smelled kind of chemical-y, or like nail polish. I was initially worried about putting it on my face, but I didn't have any problems with it whatsoever, and I have now gotten used to the smell.

This concealer comes in 6 different shades and is pretty affordable. While it isn't the cheapest or most expensive products out there, it works wonders. It's also very hydrating which is awesome for my dry skin! I also use it to highlight my noise, forehead, and chin and it works great. Again, it blends out very well in those areas and gives my face a nice, natural glow.

Pros:
-Hydrating
-Stays all day
-Covers my dark circles completely
-Easy applicator
-Covers blemishes as well
-Works great as a highlight over my entire face

Cons
-Weird smell at first

I also made a video review about this product, so if you want to see the actual applicator and swatches, make sure to check that out!


Have you tried anything from this new collection yet?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
