I recently made an order with QVC as I found out they sell Tarte Cosmetics. I picked up a gift set which had a few things including the rainforest of the sea Foundation.
I’d never tried anything from Tarte before so I was really excited to try it out.
The description on the Sephora website said the below:
the ultimate in hydration-boosting coverage with tarte’s 12-hour water foundation. The concentrated, full-coverage fluid formula features 20 percent water to quench dry skin as it covers and masks any redness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone while softening the look of pores and fine lines.
From the above the foundation is long wearing if you set it with a powder but seems to move around and break down if you don’t. The coverage is more medium coverage than full but is definitely buildable.
Honestly I don’t find it that hydrating, it’s not drying but also not as hydrating as i thought it was going to be considering its 20% water!
It also slightly makes my pores look bigger which is a bit of a let down. I even tried with a pore minimising primer!
It does come in a good few shades from light to dark which is nice.
So basically it’s not he worst foundation I’ve used but I have tried some that are half the price but three times better.
Have you tried it? What did you think? Let me know!
