This!

By Shannon

Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

I put a dab of this on my arm at the store and instantly fell in love. I didn't even know the price, I just knew I had to have it! I love using it on my legs when wearing shorts or a dress. It blends in nice with my skin, evens out my skin tone and makes my skin appear flawless! It says it is matte but it does have a sheen to it as it sparkles s little in the right light, but I don't mind it:)

    Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

    I use a self tanner weekly on my whole body but my for arms and lowers legs never take the color as well as the rest of my body. I use this product to give those lighter areas an extra boost of color. This product lasts all day and looks natural on my fair skin. It does need to be blended well as the product is thick. I also have dry skin year round so moisturizing before I apply prevents and mild patchiness as the day goes on.

    Bought this to cover some scars on my legs and this product did help but it is not a body makeup that it is described in some places. Although it is a great self tanner and easy to apply and it is a beautiful color and blends well

    Product is OK for evening out a naturally odd tan but it is not a self tanner. More akin to body make up. Also, it's supposed to me matte but it has GLITTER in it.

      This did not rub off and stain my clothes, ect. I normally never review a product. My philosophy is I am not doing free advertising. I made an exception with this product, because it really does give a glow, and is easy to apply. I decided that I want other women to enjoy this too; I think you'll like it!

          Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

          I bought this last summer after trying it at Ulta. I couldn't believe how natural it looked! I was hooked. I've used it over my self tanner and it blends perfectly. It does not budge with water. I've actually showered quickly and it stayed on unless I scrubbed with soap and water. It made my legs look so smooth. I've used on my arms occasionally but mostly my legs. My skin is oily but I even tried it on my face and the color was so pretty. It's very smooth and never orange. If you are looking for a quick bit of color this is your best bet! Use it alone or over your self tanner. You'll love it!!!

            Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

            This very pale girl was prepping for her vacation when she realized that her ultra white legs might frighten fellow beach-goers. GASP! I needed a sunless asnwer and I needed it fast. After heavy research I scooped up Tarte's waterproof body perfector.
            It looked far too dark for my light skin at first, but as I rubbed it in a beautiful glow developed, flawlessly blurring any veins or hair follicles that may or may not have tarnished my wondrous stems only seconds before. After rejoicing in my underwear for approximately the length of one Taylor Swift song, and admiring my orange-free instant-tan, I jumped into my white shorts and spent the day constantly checking my crotch for some sort of bronzed chaffing situation. To my surprise, it never happened, truly the stuff of miracles. It even stayed on throughout the shower (I did not exfoliate or shave) and my legs were still beautifully bronze the following day, as I lounged around my house, binge-watching OITNB. I saw the pizza dude check out my legs, I think he was really impressed with the effectiveness of the product.
            *exfoliate thoroughly prior to use
            *apply to one area at a time (calf, then thigh…) *let dry completely after applying
            *do not use towel or washcloth to remove, as you will have completely destroyed said linen, use loofa or sponge
            *show off those amazing legs and bask in all your gorgeous wonder, because you look good, reeeaaallly good.

            Naturally, I have a rather pale complexion. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I was looking for something that would give me a glow. This product is wonderful! It does not make me orange. With is a BIG problem for me when I try brozers,self tanners, or anything that promises a glow. This product gives you a true matte finish which is perfect for every day use. Sure it's a bit high, as far as the price, but it will last.

              Hi! I purchased this product at Ulta, and the color said Park ave. Princess. The sales women actually took it off the shelf so I didn't notice the color until I got home. Does it come in other shades as well. If so, how many? Thanks in advance.

                If you allow the product to absorb for at least 30 seconds after application before dressing or before going to bed, it should not transfer onto clothing or sheets.

                This product (Body Perfector) is a temporary product that washes off with soap and water, while the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face and Body Self Tanner is a self tanning product that provides a lasting tan for a few days (does not wash off).

            • Q:

              Being that this comes off with soap and water, I'm guessing this is a temporary tan...? So this is not a product that you would continue to use to "build-up" color.. ?

                You can layer as you apply for more opaque color. Yes, this product washes off upon showering/bathing with soap & water.

                How to Use-
                Dispense a generous amount of mararcuja rainforest glow and apply to one body part at a time (adding more as needed). Blend with fingers until the sheer bronze color is even. Allow body perfector to absorb for at least 30 seconds before dressing. Simply wash off your temporary tan with soap and water.

              Can you use this to cover self-tanners that have started to fade or that are getting blotchy? Or should you only apply to skin without self-tanner on it? Thank you.

                A:

                The Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector is a matte, waterproof formula that feels more like a cream; the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face and Body Self Tanner has more of a gel texture that is buildable with multiple uses. They both leave an easy, streak-free golden bronze tan with help of the applicator mitt.
