I am not a big fan of this foundation primarily because I have very dry skin & it seemed to make my skin even dryer. My chin seemed to get very irritated after the first use of this product almost making it feel as if it had burnt the skin. (again maybe that was because of how drying it was) It settled into my fine lines making me look older. If you have normal to oily skin this may be a good product to try. But I don't think it is very good if you have dry skin. Coverage seemed to last longer than some but definitely not as long as born this way does.

I hate this foundation and I cannot stress that enough!! This foundations texture is a thick mousses consistency and it feels very promising and and it goes on pretty thick and smoothly! The downside of this foundation is that it’s so thick and does not cover it also fades in a few hours which to me this is a waste of money! I own so double wear and I know some of you have compres this to double wear and let me just say there is no comparison! Double wear is a runny loud that dries quickly and this is a mousse that doesn’t dry and slips around on the face and does not stay put, I have pretty dry skin and I do tend to get an oily t zone but I have acne on my cheeks and let me just say this does not cover my acne like double wear does! This also tends to rub off if I put any type of concealer on it even if it’s a trate concealer! I really hate this product and if I could lose it I gladly would and not bother replacing it!

The first foundation I am returning and will not finish.

*** This is advertised as full coverage and it is NOT. Even when I build it, its only medium coverage.

It contains a lot of product, but that is because its a whipped mousse-like consistancy, its full of air and you need tons on your face. It fades terribly only after a few hrs and I have extremely dry skin, I cannot imagine how badly it would fade on someone with oily skin.

I don't understand why people love this foundation so much. It left my skin looking flat. It was demolished after a few hours by my oily skin. It is like a tinted clay mask. Overhyped!!! I returned it to ULTA. I NEVER return things to Ulta.

I love this foundation. Its my new favorite and I reach for it instead of ELDW most days. The color is amazing and a perfect match for my NC 30 skin (I got the medium sand I think). its very yellow and blends well into my skin. This is definitely a medium coverage not full but can be built up. Not sure why this foundation is not more popular because I think its really amazing

This foundation is pretty great. It's actually more of a medium coverage for me. It lasts all day, doesn't irritate my skin and is a good balance between matte and satin. For combination skin types, this foundation would work well because it's not super matte. It also has no smell which I really love. The ingredients are relatively clean and simple. Packaging is very convenient and blends like a dream. Has a very wide colour selection with clear descriptions that let's you easily select your true shade. I think you get what you pay for.

I have been on the hunt for over a year to find a foundation to replace my EL DW. EL DW was my holy grail foundation for 22 years. EL DW was settling into my pores and no matter what pore minimizing primer I used, it settles into my pores and looked cakey at the end of the day. EL DW was also not enough coverage for me.

Now, comes Tarte. I went to Sephora and got free samples of all the full coverage foundations. I even went to drugstore and tried full coverage foundations as well. Tarte has way better color selection for yellow undertone.

This is a cream foundation and very thick when squeezed out of the tube, but applies very light. I personally prefer a brush over fingers and/or wet sponge. Stipple the product using a brush for fuller coverage. For lighter coverage use a wet sponge. I am still trying to find the right primer for this product, but this wears a long time and more oil controlling than EL DW.

This does not have any smell. The color does oxidize on me half a shade. When I first apply it, it is slightly too light, but wait a tiny bit a time and matches me perfectly. EL DW Dawn was the closest match, but it was a bit too pink on me. Tarte is the perfect color match on me at Fairly Light Neutral.

Pros:
- full coverage if applied with brush.
- does not settle into my pores
- great color selection especially yellow undertones

Con:
- not transfer proof as the day goes on

This foundation is pretty full coverage, it's kinda like paint. I have the shade fair sand, which matches well with my yellow undertones. Even with how full coverage it is on me can't make up for how much it sinks into my pores. I feel like you can see every single one. I'm sure it would help to have a pore filling primer, but I don't want to go out and get one just for this foundation. Right now, I'm mixing it with my L'Oreal Infallible to use up the product. One thing I do love about this foundation is that the tube it's in is recyclable!

I LOVE this foundation! Great coverage, doesn't look cakey, and lasts all day. I tried this when I couldn't get EL Double Wear, and this has become a second favorite.
