Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation Swatches

I received a complimentary sample pack of 4 shades from Sephora.

Naturally, I can’t wear all of them. But you all can surely benefit from seeing the swatches. 🙂

L-R: Tan Sand, Medium Honey, Light-Medium Honey, Light Neutral.


The shade that matches me the best is Tan Sand. It leans a little beige so it is not a perfect match.

The coverage is light to medium, but not exactly full. It lasted for several hours without powder and didn’t become greasy. I can see this needing a powder during the summer months.  I stayed at home while testing this, engaging in mild activity. If I were at work or out and about, I think my face would have been oilier after a few hours.

This water-based foundation would work well for normal, combination or dry skin types.

  1. Looking nice. That’s a nice review

  2. This is one foundation I have heard about, but never was really interested. Somehow Tarte as a brand isn’t exciting for me. I know that I am fairly alone with this opinion. Do you own a lot of Tarte?

  5. I’ve heard so much about this foundation and was curious about it. I might have to stop in Sephora and try it out myself. I need to try more foundation.
