Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette + Giveaway

 Tarte deserves a standing ovation for this one. Just take a look at this beauty. I don't think I've ever found a palette more beautiful. It was definitely love at first sight and after a few weeks of pining over it I decided to just purchase it. 

Six shadows, a highlighter, a bronzer, and a blush in a beautiful circle palette. Whoever decided to make a circle palette was a freakin' genius. I feel so posh whenever I bring this bad boy out. Following the orchid trend the palette leans more towards the purple spectrum which I'm obsessed with lately. I'm also proud of myself for finally buying a palette that isn't primarily neutral. It may not be a completely neutral palette, but all of the shades are incredibly wearable. The shadows are creamy, a dream to blend, and always get me compliments. Seriously. Every time I wear any shadows from this palette someone compliments my makeup. A beautiful palette that guarantees a little ego boost? I'm already sold.

In the eye look I used "Up to No Gold" all over the lid, "Plum Away with Me" on the outer corner, "Make a Mauve" lightly in the crease, and "Bare to Explore" up to the brow bone. I tend to have a light hand when applying eye makeup (I'm working on getting more confident in my skill and going darker, but I digress), but the contrast between the gold and the purple really makes the look pop. This is definitely a do everything kind of palette. You have everything you need for a face of makeup and eye shadow shades that make it easy to transition from day to night. Everything about this palette is wonderful! My only compliant is that the bronzer is a touch too orange for my liking. With some extra blending though it still looks great.

After featuring the palette in a recent this week's most loved post there were a lot of the comments from readers drooling over this baby. Plus there were also a lot of comments from UK readers saying they wish they could get this palette, but it's not available there. I love this palette so much I wanted to share it with you! So as a thank you for being such loyal readers I'm giving one away! The giveaway is open internationally and you must be 18 years old or have parental consent. The giveaway will end in one week and I'll contact the winner with the email they use for the Rafflecopter giveaway. Thanks again for being such loyal readers and good luck!

What do you think of this palette? Would you wear lighter day looks with it like I do or vamp things up for a purple smokey night look?

xoxo Kayla
