Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

The new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation ($32.25) is a new liquid foundation launching for Fall 2015. I’m noticing watery fluid foundations are huge in Asia right now so no great surprise they are starting to become more popular in the US. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation is available as a pre-book sale on and will ship September 24th!

Take a look!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation is a lightweight, hydrating formula infused with Tarte’s antioxidant rich Rainforest of the Sea complex available in six shade selections. This lightweight fluid delivers hydrating coverage with a formula rich in antioxidants to nourish and hydrating skin.

You only need two to three drops of foundation for lightweight, skin perfecting coverage that brightens skin and leaves it looking flawless!

QVC packages up the new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation with a a customized double-ended brush for a flawless application.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ah that would make sense… Tarte is owned by a Japanese company after all. But so like, they put algae in as one of the last ingredients and now it’s suddenly the “rainforest of the sea”? LOL. I’ll wait to see your review before I pull any triggers.

  • Anna Fantasia

    Ok… so, I might be the only one confused about the name of what might be a wonderful foundation (maybe). Rain Forest of the Sea Water?! It’s like they couldn’t decide whether to promote the plant nutrients or the ocean organisms? Just too much in a name- already made me hesitate in trying this just because of the name!So do you plan to try this Muse?
    Hugs Muse,

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi Anna, I ordered it but it won’t ship until September so hopefully I’ll review at that time πŸ™‚ xoxo!

  • kimkats

    Kose owns Tarte? I didn’t know that!! But what’s with the doofy name? “Rainforest of the sea?” Sorry, I can’t help but think of Chicken of the sea when I hear this!!

    Still, I’ve been all over Tarte for the last year or so, so I’m gonna be eagerly awaiting your verdict on this Muse!! It might be very nice! It sure looks cool! πŸ˜€

  • Tracy

    Wondering if it’s like the new Smashbox BB Water I just reviewed. Maybe I’ll hold out on this one but I’m curious to compare to two.

  • Maria

    Hi Muse. I saw that on QVC website. It looks like to me that the bottle dispenser is the same as the Tarte foundcealer. I have the foundcealer from QVC today special from Tarte and the dropper is used. I like the foundation but the fluid does not come out easily with the dropper. If this new foundation has the same dropper dispenser I will pass. The bottle top looks the same to me. I hope I am wrong. Any thoughts Muse?

    • Isabella Muse

      It appears to be a dropper Maria but I don’t have the foundation so I can’t confirm. As soon as I get my order in September I’ll be sure to tell you about the packaging.

  • Zovesta

    Huh… personally, I can’t wait to see what you think of this, since I’m not up for any impulse buys. This sure looks neat though!

  • Donna Rose

    I’m concerned with some of the ingredients in this foundation.
    Alumina, talc, and a few others. Don’t know how Tarte can say that their brand is good for you. Any thoughts?

  • Katherine T.

    I’m always interested in foundations that promise to be lightweight, but why call it sea water? Sea water sounds salty, dirty, and drying to me. I think they should’ve called it Rainforest Waterfall or Rainforest Mist Foundation or something like that

  • Carolyn

    Ya kin I saw this and considered buying it but then I thought it may not blend well on my 40-something dry skin. Hmmm… Will wait for reviews to come in.

  • Maria

    The bottle looks like it has the same dropper application like the Tarte foundcealer. The dropper did not work for me but I liked the foundcealer. Muse, do you think the same of the new foundation?

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m not sure Maria. I’ll have to try it first before I know πŸ™‚

  • Kitty Cass

    Unfortunately, the algae and the coconut oil in this will make my face erupt. It’s a shame, because I really love most Tarte products. πŸ™

  • Penny

    Already ordered mine! I just love all of the Tarte foundations I have, plus, that brush looks awesome! πŸ™‚

  • Genevieve

    I hope the brand has the kind of nozzle that allows only one or two drops to come out at a time because I have found with some watery foundations that my hands have ended up wearing most of it. I use my fingertips to blend it foundation – I don’t like sponges, brushes etc.
    It sounds lovely anyway.

  • Lila

    Hope it’s better than the clay foundation. I tried to love it but cannot get into the gel like consistency that makes me look so dry.

  • Bianca

    Hi. Am from the Philippines so I will ask a friend to pre order and send to me. I wonder if you can help me pick my shade. I have yellow undertones. I am NC25 and MUFE HD 118. Should I go for light or medium? Would be a waste if i will get the wrong shade.

    • Tracy

      I believe you being NC25 should order either Light or Light Medium. Medium will be way too dark for you. I suggest you watch the video on QVC channel on YouTube. They have live swatches of each shades there. I was born in the Philippines too, btw! πŸ™‚

  • Tracy

    Guys, if you are confused why it’s called Rainforest of the Sea, watch the video on QVC website or its channel on YouTube. They explained there very thoroughly what makes this foundation special and why it’s called like that. Good thing I saw that first before I read any blogs about this otherwise I’d be confused as well!

  • Becky

    I am not sure now,I ordered 2 different shades cause I didn’t know which would work ordered the Light and light medium hope I didn’t make a mistake

    Hi! Thanks for your review, Isabella! I love a dewier finish, but have had a hard time finding one without super sheer coverage. I need some coverage (hyper pigmentation)! So I’m too, too excited by these new things coming out, but finding a sample has been crazy hard. Do you think Tarte’s is good coverage? Have you also tried Becca Aqua or Stila’s new serum? QVC is now out of this so I’m trying to decide if it’s worth the wait for wider release, supposedly this spring….I heard Born This Way is light feeling and moist, though not a serum, and fuller coverage, but I can’t find my shade locally either.

    Very grateful in advance for sharing your experiences!

  • C

    Yes, thank you! I once loved pΓΌr powder for easy coverage but I am
    d-r-y like Sahara sand, and our little love affair had to end :-/. But I’ll check their hydra out and the Born This Way.

    • Isabella Muse

      aw I hear ya! Dry too! Born this way is lovely! I’ll have a review of the new pur minerals foundation soon!

  • MK

    Luv this stuff and now that I need more I can’t find it anywhere, even on Tarte’s website. It goes on quickly and the brush makes it look like your skin has been airbrushed. Dries quickly and leaves my skin soft and silky.
