I started using this product about 8 months ago, after using Dior foundation. I really like Tarte. I find that it does offer full coverage but I just really wish it lasted the 12 hours as specified. I'm a physician and find myself often working 12hr + shifts and start noticing foundation changes about 6 to 8 hours into my shift.
Have 2 different shades, overall the foundation does a really good job. It is medium to full coverage, but be careful cause it can look cakey, a little goes a long way. I have very oily t-zone and I did not notice it really make a difference in wear on oily skin, It it long wearing overall. I like the packaging, but wish it have a greater variety of shades.
Though this foundation is on the pricey side, it works great. However, for a full coverage foundation I would have thought it would cover acne better. The foundation does not like to cover the texture of acne. It stays on great, even while sleeping (yes I know this is bad to do but it stays well). Makes the face look flawless when used with a concealer. Thought clay could clog pores but my skin cleared up while using this.
I really love this foundation! I've only had it a couple of weeks but my skin has never looked so good. I have really oily skin and I find myself never having to touch it up with anything when I'm using this. I took away one lipstick because I wish they had more shades; they didn't have the right one for my skin tone and I had to go a little light. I need to set it with a powder foundation in order for it to match me, but other than that I really love this product and see myself buying it over and over again!
I am pretty pale and have a difficult time finding a light enough shade that is not pink. I got a sample from Sephora and fell in love. The coverage is pretty good. I seem to always have a couple breakouts on my face along with acne scars so I still use a little concealer. I apply with my F80. I tried with my beauty blender but it did not work out so well. The packaging it great I love the squeeze tube. $38 is pretty pricey, but I will buy again since the color is so great.
This is nice! It seriously lasted me over 12 hours. It's got a nice creamy texture and it blends extremely well. I didn't follow up with a powder because it gave me a nice dewy finish. My only complaint was that it kind of creased up in the corners of my nose and in the fine lines under my eyes, but then again I didn't use a primer beforehand. Overall it's nice and I love that Tarte uses such nice ingredients in their products.
This is definetly a winter foundation for me. I feel that it would be to thick to wear during the summer even though the oil control is good. Right now my skin is a bit dry so I had some problems with it at first. I would not recommend this to people who have dry skin since it makes flakes really stand out. I think if it was a bit more mosturizing, I would have given this product a 5 out of 5.
I started to use my Clarisonic before I apply the foundation, and it goes on beautifully. I don't have the palest shade but the shade above it and it matches with my skin tone really well.
I got mine from Beauty Brands for $38. The price is actually pretty good seeing how there is a lot of product. Also I recommend using a beauty blender, it just helps it go on really well.
I don't know if I would call this an HG, but it is pretty good.
This is a wonderful foundation, with a semi-matte and seamless finish. The coverage is medium but buildable, and also the consistency is not too thick but creamy and blendable. It does a good job of oil-control (presumable thanks to the amazonian-clay) but it does not stay completely matte all day, as does for example the MUFE Matt Velvet. I like to powder a little about mid-day with this foundation.
-LOTS of product: 1.7 oz (lasts forever!!)
-Nice durable packaging
-Good buildable coverage
-Creamy smooth consistency
-Does not completely eliminate oil
-Small range of colors
I got my tube at Ulta for $38, have repurchased once and will again. My shade is Light, which I find to be slightly yellowish on me because I am pretty pale. Next time I might try a shade lighter.
I really loved this foundation. The coverage is great and very buildable. And the lasting power of it is downright amazing!! I am also super pale and their color choices were fairly easy to match to my skin.. The only thing about this is that it gave me milia and small bumps on my forehead and cheeks. So unfortunately there is something in the ingredients that doesn't agree with me skin! Bummer since it's everything I am looking for in a foundation.
Unfortunetly, this didnt work for me. If you have dry skin Id steer clear of this. I have dry skin, and after I put this on it emphazied ALL my dry patches (not cute) and my skin isnt even THAT dry but for some reason it looked like my skin was dying of thirst.If you have oily skin this might be good for you. Some good things are: It didnt oxidize on me, and it had pretty nice packaging (plastic tube, good for travel). Thats about it :/
