I am Nc15-20. Warm. The fair is perfect for me but I can see paler peeps having an issue finding a shade. The light was too dark. I love the way it seems to make my skin appear smoother, not super matte but not shiny either. Just great! I can use it on top of a powder foundation to give it that extra evening out of my skin and a lil extra coverage. I would say this is very light coverage but using it over foundation is amazing!!! Will definitely repurchase and I hope they keep making it. The packaging is a bit bulky which is great and sturdy but a little heavy and large. You can probably pop out the powder and put it in another compact but I haven't tried yet. It won't stop me from buying! Love it!!!
I really love Tarte and this powder is such a great product. The natural ingredients are so great because I feel like I'm not putting chemicals all over my face. I felt like it lasted pretty long (as long as a powder can last, let's be real) and had ok colors. That's been my only struggle with Tarte stuff, I'm not fair and i'm not light, I'm in between the two colors. I didn't repurchase only because I can't afford it right now, but I definitely will when I have the funds!
After sampling many different face powders over the years and being largely dissatisfied, I am excited to have found this pressed powder. I strayed from pressed powders after high school as they had a tendency to break me out (oil content) and as their powder puffs were not hygienic. I moved on to loose powders, some of which would settle into my pores or else exaggerate fine lines that were not even fine lines yet. Without fail, I would always need to reapply my powder and blot my face because of the grease factor. Even in winter, the powders would cling to my dry or irritated skin and exacerbate the situation. I am amazed to find a powder, let alone a pressed powder, that can remedy all of the above situations. This powder blends in magically with my complexion without exaggerating dry skin or settling into fine lines or pores. It seems to control my oil production somewhat. The most important thing is that it looks very completely natural, although admittedly if I apply too much, I look a bit dry and powdery. I would say this powder offers medium coverage. The price is right for this product because you need very little to set your skincare or makeup routine. I will be using this powder for a long time yet.
This is the ONLY pressed powder that I have ever found that actually helps my oily skin. It actually reduces the oil so I don't have to blow nearly as much. It also covers just as good as a foundation and will leave you with awesome even toned flawless matte skin. It's on the pricy side, but worth it.
