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 178.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from QVC needs to check exp date! I have purchased this TWICE from QVC and both times they sent me a foundation that expired the month prior. I was able to exchange one for the right date but the second time it happened I returned it and did not want to exchange. This is not the first time I notice QVC sends out expired items. I would definitely check your purchases when it comes to makeup and make sure your items are not expired. I really do love this foundation because it gives a light weight formula but it covers nicely. I would say it is medium coverage but you can build it up. Because it is water based, it does not look caked when building it up. I do recommend the actual product but highly recommend you check the expiration date when it arrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY GRAIL FOR ALL SKIN TYPES I have a ton of foundation. I have the tarte full coverage in the brown tube, Estée Lauder, IT, BareMinerals, Becca...get the point? I have been IN LOVE with this foundation ever since I ordered it from Tarte (QVC, where are all the colors?????). I have ZERO oil buildup in my t-zone for 14 hours, I have the PERFECT shade, my wrinkles aren’t full of foundation, my dry spots aren’t on the main stage, and this works well with an array of primers. It’s easily buildable for customized coverage. If you want more coverage just let it set for a minute, put 2-3 more drops on the back of your hand and use your foundation brush to apply a little more. I’m absolutely in love with this foundation. It was 116°f today and my face stayed in place!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from expired in 3 months! I realized (too late) that I bought this in February of 2017 and the expiration date on the bottom says May of 2017. Shame on you QVC and tarte! You should never have sold something that close to the expiration date (especially when it is a product w/ spf so the stakes are even higher if I am wearing it thinking I am protected!). I had to toss it way before I was finished with it. I do actually like this foundation, but I am rating this purchase low in the case of selling me a nearly expired product. Boo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! This foundation is medium to full coverage, lightweight, lasts throughout the day and looks natural. I'm in love! Now that the weather is warming up I wanted to replace my matte foundation with something more natural and (no joke) have spent over $500 in the past 2 months looking for the perfect foundation. Nothing I've purchased has been worth the money until I tried this. I set it with a radiant powder and a spray so it lasts longer and it just looks and feels so good. I will say it does not last as long as matte foundations and it transfers which I don't care for but the more natural or radiant foundations do this so I'm not going to complain to much. In my opinion if you are looking for natural looking flawless skin in a foundation this one delivers. I'm so happy with the product! Just an fyi I'm 30 with combo skin, I have a few acne scars but otherwise normal skin, I'm light/medium skin tone (I purchased this in light sand as well as medium so I can match skin tone according to tan).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect and light! i have been looking for foundation that wasn't heavy but covered good. i have found it! this stuff is great, i don't really care for the dropper (feels like I'm going to spill it) but the brush is gorgeous and this stuff goes on really well. i am 45 and don't like to look too made up these days, so i would say try it if you are looking for daily use and don't want to look like you're going out! good stuff! thank you qvc for bringing this to us!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too pink I love the formula it feels nice on.. I order the light medium, but my foundation says light medium honey, it's to pink I have to mix it with a different foundation to get my color..I think I should have gotten a shade darker.. maybe it would have looks better? But it does feel light weight and the brush is amazing
