What is it: A luxuriously lightweight hydrating foundation infused with tarte's antioxidant Rainforest of the Sea complex, plus broad-spectrum SPF 15 coverage, and a customized double-ended brush for a flawless application.

Who is it for: Anyone looking for radiant, moisture-rich coverage.

Why is it different: tarte's newest complexion perfection innovation is a lightweight, skin-perfecting fluid that floats over skin to deliver full, hydrating coverage and skin-care benefits with every application. The antioxidant-rich ingredients from the Rainforest of the Sea complex help to diffuse the appearance of imperfections, leaving skin looking flawless. The included double-ended brush is the perfect tool to let you build your custom level of seamless coverage.

In a consumer use survey, immediately after application, 97% said their skin appeared smoother and softer; 97% said their skin appeared brighter; 97% said their skin appeared more radiant; 90% said their skin tone appeared more even; 90% saw visible improvement in the texture of their skin; 93% saw a reduction in the appearance of dark spots; 93% saw fewer imperfections on their skin; 87% saw a visible reduction in the appearance of redness; 100% of women said this product did not feel heavy on their skin; and 83% said pore size appeared less visible.

How do I use it: Dispense two to three drops of foundation directly onto the included brush, then gently buff into the skin. The smaller angled side is perfect for areas like under the eyes and around the nose, while the flatter, wider side is great for buffing over larger areas like the cheeks and forehead. For light coverage, use one to two drops. For medium to full coverage, use three to four drops.

From tarte.

tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation with Brush is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 157.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from GREAT FOUNDATION, BUT..... This is great foundation, however it was advertised as being dewy on your face and it is not. It turns flat mat as soon as you are finished applying. Also, the delivery system for this product with the bottle, cap-pump, dropper and brush are hard to maneuver. You have to hold the bottle (to stop it from tipping and spilling in the sink), while holding, you have to pump the top of the cap (to get product up into the dropper.) Now you have to take the dropper out of the bottle with one hand while you are holding the brush in the other, apply a few drops on the brush then replace the dropper in the bottle (while holding the brush in the other hand.) This is the reason I don't care for this product. Also, a lot of your expensive foundation gets eaten up by the nice fluffy brush. Sorry, but it's going back. (this review may sound like I am 130 years old and cannot manage some simple foundation, however I never have been able to juggle either)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time QVC buyer This was my first purchase with QVC. After recently falling in love with tarte products I was looking to buy this foundation and brush. On the product website, you can only purchase these items separately, I was looking at double the price I got it for on QVC. I had never been on QVC but I came to visit the site, imagine my surprise when I saw the product I had been eyeing. Not only was it half the price but it was delivered faster than the date they said it would be delivered. I love the product, and I love the price I purchased both items for even more. Thank you QVC!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Off On Color Loved the brush. The color was orange and only lasted for a couple hours. The dropper is not a great way to dispense the product. Sending back and will try the full coverage one instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need more colors, Hate the dropper I really liked this makeup, but there were a couple issues. First of all there are over 20 shades available on Tarte's website, but QVC only offers 6....all in the honey shade which is a peach undertone. You'd think they'd offer the neutral....yellow/pink undertone. Secondly, the dropper is terrible. It wouldn't be so bad if the opening of the bottle was wider. It's very wasteful & this stuff isn't cheap. The makeup itself is fantastic, but I had to return due to those issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and wonderful I have many fine lines and acne scars plus redness. I am in my early thirties but skin is not in great shape. Most foundations just make it worse. I am really liking this one. Doesn't make my face itch or feel tight. Stays on without powder though gets a bit oily but nothing a blotting paper won't fix. Covers my redness and evens out skin without looking heavy. I bought the fair neutral. It is a great match. Definitely build able. Doesn't set into my fine lines which is amazing. So far this is the best foundation i have every bought. All around i am completely happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In love with this product! I have been a huge fan of tarte's Amazonian clay foundation line (liquid and loose powder) but I have fallen in love again! This foundation just seems to melt into my skin and gives me a nice "dewy but not too dewy" look. I have combination skin in the winter so my only complaint is that it does hold onto my dry patches a little more at the end of the day (I just scrub a couple more times a week and spot treat with their Maracuja oil). Other than that, it makes my skin look flawless. I use the light/medium shade which fits perfectly on my neutral toned skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not the best tarte product I use tarte clay foundation and wanted to try a different one that would give me a dewy glow, well, I didn't see any different with the "glow" compared to the clay foundation, the coverage was good but it has an orange tint. Was not happy at all with the way you get the foundation out, don't quite understand why they used this type of dispenser, gave 3 stars because the coverage is good, but the dispenser and orange tint caused it from not getting 5 stars
