Highlighters and illuminators continue to be makeup essentials for many of us. I’ve found a new one that I needed to share with you; the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea™ Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette. And it’s being released today; how’s that for perfect timing?
The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette is composed of three powders: Sunlight (far left), a golden shade and Moonlight (far right), a rose gold. These full-size shades can be used to illuminate the cheeks, forehead or anywhere you’d like to add light, or strobe. The middle shade, Filtered Light, is a matte sand powder that can be placed under the eye area to brighten or set your concealer. The highlighting/illuminating shades impart a beautiful sheen–not glittery. I’m happy to report the powders don’t settle into fine lines. My favorite shade in the Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette is Moonlight (on the right). There is a slight texture to the top of the powders.
The Filtered Light setting powder (middle) seems to have a different formulation (harder) than the others, which isn’t unusual for a setting powder. With Sunlight and Moonlight, the powders are soft and easy to work with. Because of the difference in the Filtered Light texture, I found the most consistent result using a powder puff to apply. I felt that I really did see a brightening effect under my eyes, which I liked. Overall, this is a beautiful palette worth considering. You can find the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette at Sephora and Tarte.com, $42.
