Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Aquacealer

It goes without saying that we all want clear, even, smooth skin…and some days, our epidermis (apparently on strike) isn’t…AT ALL…in accord.  The market is over-saturated with products, many of which are indeed “HG’s (holy grails.)  You may remember Tarte’s Rainforest Of The Sea water-based fluid foundation from August, 2015…well…

This new Rainforest Of The Sea Aquacealer is a super hydrating, full coverage, anti-aging concealing serum formulated with pigments suspended in a water / conditioning serum hybrid base.  It is “4 times lighter” than like products out there, another lovely benefit for those of us who want clear radiance without heavy weight. I usually opt for a tinted moisturizer designed with athletes in mind, as I want sheer, skin tone evening, and water resistant…but this looks pretty amazing (and it comes with a brush, which is always nice!)

At $29.50, it doesn’t seem “too much” given that it does rather a lot with just a tiny drop.  There’s a great video to go along with the description here, and worth watching for the before and afters.  

Rainforest Of The Sea

I’m not sure I *totally* get the Rainforest Of The Sea name here…but I suppose it is meant to connote the hydrating and water-based nature of this Tarte newbie…

Water-based, fluid foundations are a huge trend at the moment, taking Sephora by storm for one.  It has also already hit mass market, with Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation, and prior to that, Physician’s Formula Youthful Wear Foundation.  L’oreal’s Magic Nude Powder came out in between the two, I believe, with it’s “liquid powder,” watery texture.

This newcomer boasts an antioxidant-rich formula that diffuses imperfections while providing full, customizable coverage with the added benefit of skin-loving ingredients, and a solid dose of moisture.  It comes in six shades, with a beautiful double-ended complexion brush and ships in later September.  

How do you feel about the water-based foundations? Are you a fan of the texture?
