The brush sheds and sheds and sheds little black hairs. Did I mention that it continually sheds? Very poor product.
Liquid -Tarte - Maracuja Miracle 12-Hour Foundation- Medium

I really wanted to love this product. Tarte's eyeliners and mascaras are my favorite. But the Maracuja Miracle 12-Hour Foundation was a huge disappointment. Details: *The brush that accompanies it sheds hairs every time. This means you have little black hairs to pick off your face. I eventually used another brush. * The fragrance is very strong and does not fade. It irritated my eyes for hours. The first few times I tried this foundation I blamed the eye issue on other things (sleepy, bright sunshine, etc) but finally had to face the fact that this foundation was the problem. * The foundation felt sticky on my skin all day. Sorry tarte. This product is not good.

First received the small pot in violet as part of a kit in Sept 2010. Began a new job where I had to look polished all day every day. This eyeliner is great.It does not fade or smudge. Then I ordered the large bronze pot alone. Less intense color but very flattering for my blue eyes. Lasts all day. Then I got the black as part of a kit. Oh my. I can barely use it because the intensity is insane. I agree that the clay looks like it is cracking, but the texture or performance did not change.
Update: I was in a hurry and squeezed out big globs of this foundation and rubbed it all over my face as quickly as possible... and it turned out to be a great thing! Surprise. I had been putting it on much too thinly. If you apply a larger amount at the beginning of the day, it will last all day with medium coverage. It feels lighter than original Double Wear and looks lighter too. I use Double Wear original on the days I will be away almost 12 hours. It's very good but the glass bottle is annoying and it takes time to apply. I thought Double Wear Light would be a good substitute for the days I don't need such long wear. The squeeze tube is much better for dispensing but the COVERAGE IS TOO LIGHT. And for some reason, I cannot build up heavier coverage around my nose. disappointed...

This great product is mystifying. It feels like you've sprayed water on your face... there is no fragrance. After it dries, however, my skin is softer and feels refreshed. It's expensive but you only need 1-3 sprays so it lasts a very long time.

Hooray! A good moisturing sunscreen with NO FRAGRANCE. This makes my skin less tight and then disappears... does not affect my foundation at all. Expensive but a little goes a long way.

Love: It's concentrated - you only need a tiny bit in the morning. It foams well and feels great on your skin. It rinses amazingly well. The fragrance is good but doesn't linger after rinsing. My feels clean and ready to face the day. BUT IT. DOES. NOT. REMOVE. MAKEUP. AT ALL. It is only good for morning cleansing.
LOVE IT. Everyone in the family agrees on this. Even my teenaged son will use this when his lips are chapped because it does not look glossy at all. I do not agree with those who say it dries out your lips. I also use it on little dry skin cuts I occasionally get on my fingers. A small lump of Burt's bees covered with a band aid at night will go a long way toward healing them.
This cleanser does not remove make-up or sunscreen. It should be rinsed with water, not simply wiped off. The only time it is useful is in the morning if you want an extremely mild cleanser.
The best lipgloss I've found. It does not creep off your lips and will last for TWO HOURS. Buy the mini 6-shade pack and try all the colors to find what works best for you.

Greasy no matter how thinly applied. Shiny, heavily scented.

Better than BE... I rub a little on my age spots with my finger and then apply all over with a brush.
