After watching some makeup videos where liquid dropper foundations were covering up all acne spots and irritations, I thought that I desperately needed one too! I always had an issue with foundations.
Well, this is how I happened to purchase the Rainforest of the Sea from Tarte.
I’ve tried all ways of application and tested it through rain and even snow.
The foundation is liquid and picks up with a dropper, which is very convenient. You can apply it immediately to your skin.
I’ve tried using it 3 ways:
With my fingers: Not a very convenient way, because the foundation is liquid. It sets on the skin pretty quickly, so you better work faster.
With a brush: It applies perfectly and the coverage is thin and lovely.
With a beauty blender: It’s the best way to apply this foundation. You can control the coverage, because it layers very well.
It covers up my pores and acne spots perfectly, although it has a liquid formula.
Doesn’t feel mask-like.
Extremely long-wearing! I was so positively surprised! It even edged out my favorite MAC and Estee Lauder Double Wear foundations that were giving me an oily sheen even with a powder after a while...
This one doesn’t make my skin oily even without a powder!
I learnt it accidentally when I tried to take it off from my hand with an ordinary soap.
Also, it doesn’t smear or bleed in rain or snow.
I have the shade Light Sand that I bought specifically for summer. But the product is available in a variety of shades!
If some of you wonder about the ingredients, it’s a water-based product with mainly glycerine and silicones. It also contains alcohol, but it goes closer to the end of the list.
Overall, my skin is very pleased with the results!
