As some of you may have already heard, Tarte is coming out with a new water based foundation, Rainforest of the sea. It was available for pre-order over at QVC earlier last year & I’ve done a short review before it’s hitting stores & websites mid February – March (no exact date has been released yet.)
If you happened to have ordered it over at QVC, it also included a brush. Don’t worry too much if you don’t get the bonus brush, it was a bonus you can do without. I highly recommend if you purchase the foundation when it’s released, leave the brush behind. There are so many better quality brushes for this foundation, I don’t know how they managed to pair these two together. The brush literally sucks the foundation into oblivion…(exaggeration, ehh not really.)
+ This foundation is perfect for dry skin
+ It has a bit of a powdery finish
+ Use moisturizer &/or primer before application
+ Very lightweight, takes 2-3 coats for a fuller coverage
+ Press & hold dropper before opening as it only pumps a drop at a time
+ Use a finishing spray for longer lasting wear (I use Urban Decay All Nighter & Mac Fix + for added hydration)
This was originally my go to on weekends when I really didn’t want to do my entire face but wanted something quick to smooth my skin & just feel a little better when going to run errands or whatnot. However, when used the right way, this foundation works pretty well. I also don’t mind a light cover up when I know i’m going to pile on the concealer right after.
If you purchased/purchase this foundation, let me know what you think about it below. What worked for you? What are some tricks you found for longer wear, etc.?
