Tarte's new Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow palette (vol. II) is a cool-toned neutral palette with 8 eyeshadows arranged in a beautiful circular palette with a pretty coral (reef, not the color) design on the outside. The eyeshadows in this palette have a hybrid formula that's part cream and part powder.  They feel soft and creamy to touch but go on similar to powder shadows.  Tarte claims the eyeshadows can be used wet or dry, no primer or brush needed.  The colors included in the palette are a mix of neutrals, bronze-browns, and darker greyish blue and brown.  Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 2 eyeshadow palette features creamy powder eyeshadows that have a soft, smooth, easy to blend formula, and the colors included in the palette are a good mix for anyone who loves neutral eyeshadows.  While it is described as a cool-toned palette, I think the addition of warm-toned browns in the palette makes it wearable across most skin tones (or undertones).  The size and design of the palette makes it quite convenient to travel with, plus the eyeshadows can be applied and blended with just fingers, in case you forget to pack brushes 😛.   It includes a mix of highlighting, lid, crease, and liner shades and comes with a step-by-step guide.  The  palette can be used to create soft neutrals looks and also deeper, darker smoky eye makeup looks.

That said, I am not a fan of eyeshadows that can be used wet or dry - and this is just my personal preference.  Almost always, these sort of colors look a little dull when used dry, and I found the same issue with these Tarte eyeshadows.  They would probably look lovely on lighter skin tones and/or when used wet (or over a darker base).  If you like this sort of a formulation, then do give this new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea eyeshadow palette a try.
