Tarte H2O Lip Gloss - Rainforest of the Sea Collection: Swatches of the Entire Collection


Hi Beauties!

Just in time for summer, lip glosses have made a comeback.  So many brands are releasing full lip gloss collections and I couldn't be happier.  I love a good gloss and I like to pair them with my favourite lipstick.  Tarte has launched the H20 Lip Glosses as part of the Rainforest of the Sea Collection.  The glosses are water based and packed with ocean-sourced nutrients.  The H20 glosses retail for $23 CDN and $19 USD at Sephora and Tartecosmetics.com.  Today I will be sharing swatches of the entire collection.


There are a total of 14 shades in this collection.  They feature holographic, metallic, cream, and pearlescent finishes to provide an intense, super-lacquered shine.   The packaging is just beautiful, it reminds me of the blue sea.  It has a turquoise and gold ombre with texture drops that resembles water droplets for a wet look.  The shade names also remind me of vacation.  The wand has a flat oval applicator that allows you to apply the gloss evenly.  They contain antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts that help smooth the appearance of lip lines for a fuller appearance.  Besides the algae and marine plant extracts, other ingredients include vitamin E to condition and nourish the lips.  The formula isn't sticky nor does it feather or bleed.   I do find some shades settle in my lip lines when I'm not wearing a base.  They are comfortable to wear alone or paired with a lipstick.  I usually wear lipstick as a base to neutralize the pigmentation in my lips.  Some shades are more pigmented while some are sheerer.  The shades listed with a high shine finish below are full coverage.  The darker shades like Bahamas, Out of Office and Getaway looked intimidating in the tube because I don't usually wear dark tones but they weren't dark on.  There are so many pretty shades in this range.  Some of my faves are Bora Bora, Hang Ten, Bahamas, Sandy Toes, Sundress, Room Service and Zipline.  Maldives, Maui and Resort Life are gorgeous shades for summer.  The blue glosses, Fiji and Oasis, are my least favourite because the cool tones don't look great on my tan complexion.  Other than those two glosses,  I love all the other shades in this line.  There is a shade for everyone and can be wearable on most skin tones.
