The past few months I’ve been more about base products than I ever have before. I suppose since taking more care of my skin, I want my makeup products to improve my complexion with that. I recently purchased the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Foundation, and I waited way too long because I wish I’d purchased this sooner. I’ve really been missing out.
I saw a huge wave of love for this product via social media and YouTube, and when that happens I know I need to try it. So I bit the bullet and ordered it to the UK from the Tarte website itself when they had a free international shipping deal. I never do this but when it arrived I opened it and tried it straight away, as I was so eager. It’s seriously filled all of my expectations and more.
Firstly, I’ve never tried a water foundation and I was a little worried it would either run down my face or not have good staying power, but I was quite wrong. This is a lightweight, full coverage hydrating foundation infused with Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea complex that blends like dream. If you like a lighter coverage this is buildable to full coverage, so you can achieve a medium coverage with it to. It isn’t purchase doxycycline cakey at all and results in looking like your own skin. As it’s a water based foundation the applicator is a dropper because the formula is so fluid, which I actually kind of like. It means you can control the amount of product you want to use, one drop, two and so on. For a whole face I usually use two and this gives me a medium-full coverage. As it’s a ‘watery’ texture, it spreads out more than other foundations so you get a bit more for your money.
I find it to last all day and works wonders with the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, they make quite the perfect pair.
It comes in a nice shade range of 12 colours to choose from. Luckily, I did a bit of research into the shades and picked my exact colour match, which was quite the result. They are true to names, as I picked up light-medium neutral, which is the name I usually look for when picking a foundation shade. To suit the rest of Tarte’s products the product is super luxurious with gorgeous minimal packaging. I love the frosted glass bottle and the ombre metallic lid, its so beautiful to sit on your makeup table.
