Hit or Miss: Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Concealer || Review || KrystiEncounters

Hey Lovelies,


I got this concealer a while ago and you can see what else I picked up here in my mini haul.

Bottle / container: The applicator is actually quite big in comparison to everyone’s favorite, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer.


Formula:  It is very very liquidy.  Because it is very wet and slippery, you need to set it after application / when finishing up your look.  I also find that as my day continues, the concealer under my eyes looks worse and worse.  Within a couple hours after application, you can see the fine lines under my eyes, and that the concealer has settled into those lines.  It is very lightweight though and non drying!

Application: It’s hard to just get a little bit on, even if you try to scrape some of the excess off at the top of the bottle.  The applicator doesn’t exactly help the situation either.  A little goes a long way with this product.

Color Range: There aren’t very many options; there are a total of six shades.  The one that I have is the lightest, so if you’re lighter than me, I’m afraid you’re out of luck.  As a reference, in the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, I use shade light2, Vanilla which is their second to lightest shade.

Price: It is $26 for .34 oz on Sephora.com.

Hit or Miss?  Sorry, for me personally, this was a miss.  I don’t think you will enjoy having this under your eyes, so maybe for spot concealing on your face would be a better option.  I think that if you are more dry skin type, you will like this to spot conceal, but again, I still wouldn’t recommend using this under your eyes or places you have wrinkles or fine lines you don’t want to draw attention to.  Oily skin girls, and even my combo girls, I would skip on this one as you won’t like it on your T-zone or other places you tend to get oily.

Have you tried it?  Did you feel the same?  Let me know!
