tarte Rainforest of the Sea

Hey y’all! It’s “Make Up Monday” and I thought we’d discuss tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation.  Because I fell in LOVE.

Foundation is difficult for me.  I have super dry skin and if I use something with too much talc in it, I break out like crazy.  Most of the foundations that don’t have a lot of talc in them are SUPER thick.  It’s like putting clay on my face and then I get “cake face,” which is not attractive either.

So it is a balance to find a foundation that has enough coverage but doesn’t look cakey.  I had enough points at Sephora to get the Tarte Sampler and was able to try out several products from the line and I am in love.  Thankfully, a sample pack of the foundation was inside and I used the light sand color.  It was perfect.  This foundation gave me a weightless cover and didn’t make me break out.  I absolutely loved it and jumped at the chance to buy a full size bottle.  The full size bottle has a dropper as the way to get the product out of the bottle.  This is probably my only complaint.  I feel it is a little messy and I am super meticulous when it comes to wanting my makeup bottles and products to stay clean.  So, it drives me up the wall a little.  Lol.

It dries down to a powdery finish that is absolutely beautiful.  I bought the foundation and the tarte Rainforest of the Sea Double Ended Foundation brush.  The brush is dense and springy, it’s everything you would want in a foundation brush.  The best part in the other side is smaller to get into the tight corners of your face or you could use it as a concealer brush. Using this combo, foundation and brush, it applies beautifully to the skin.  A lot of people use a Beauty Blender to apply this product but at times, I feel like the Beauty Blender absorbs too much of my product but it is ultimately a matter of preference. I am super stoked to continue using this product.  I have been falling in love with other brands and branching out.

The foundation can be purchased at Sephora here. The brush can be purchased here.

The Rainforest of the Sea collection has a bunch of great products within it.  The moisturizer is awesome and so are lipsticks. I tried tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drench Lip Splash Lipstick in “Beach Bum” and it is described as a dark nude.  It is a gorgeous, creamy color.  It truly does moisturize your lips and keeps them hydrated throughout the day.  You can purchase it here.  They have a vast selection of colors and I wish I could buy all of them.  The packaging is adorable as well.  It looks like a sunset on the outside.

If any of y’all have the same issues with foundations and have recommendations, please let a girl know! =o)

  1. Do you have a close up of the applicator? Can you show close ups of different foundations once applied and dried for comparisons?
