Review: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation

Here is my first review on my blog! It’s all about that new foundation you have seen all over Instagram and Youtube. Is it worth the hype? Let’s find out!


Here are the claims of this foundation directly from Tarte’s website:

-12 hour wear
-Full coverage
-20% water based
-Antioxidant packed

Here’s my take on it (and no, this is not a sponsored post – I am just another makeup junkie wanting to help you out if you want to give this foundation a try!)

The good stuff:

-It is VERY light
-It looks like skin
-It blends very easily, and it does not look cakey
-It is VERY moisturizing
-It gives your skin a glow
-This works great on dry or normal/combination skin

The not so nice stuff:

-It does start to fade after about 8 hours (if you set it with a powder, it will likely last a lot longer)
-I find it to be more of a medium coverage foundation than a full coverage foundation
-It can be a little more tricky to work with for oily skin gals (read up on my last blog post for tips and learn about my favorite products for oily skin, click here now)

Personally, I do love this foundation. I am already on my second bottle and I only purchased the first one when it came out a few months ago. I am in the shade light-medium-neutral. I am more on the combination/oily side, but I find it still works great – as long as I set it with a powder. If I do not set it, I do look quite shiny after a few hours. I absolutely love this foundation for the summer time, it is so light weight and it does not even feel like you are wearing anything! It looks so healthy and gives you a natural glow. It comes with a dropper so you dispense a bit out and then apply it to the skin. It is definitely less messy than the foundations that you have to pour out. My favorite way to apply it is with my beauty blender – but be aware that this will sheer out the coverage more than with a foundation brush. I just feel like it applies more flawlessly this way.

My overall rating? I give it a solid 8/10! It is definitely one of my favorites! Give it a go and grab a sample at your local Sephora.
