I bought Truffle and I love it. This has a thin, almost watery consistency and applies very smoothly and evenly. Its very pigmented so one coat is enough. It dries in about a minute and is matte but not overly matte. The color is a gorgeous nude pink that is great for daily wear and for in the office. I took off one lippie because it's slightly sticky (but nothing unbearable). Would …Read more

New HG lipstick! It's a satin finish, so it applies smoothly and matte but is not drying at all. This is like a muted nude link - perfect for work and everyday wear. Reminds me of Velvet Teddy but more pink than brown. Also has great lasting power for such a creamy lipstick. I'm so happy I bought this!

My favorite go to lippie! I usually wear it for nighttime but it looks great for daytime wear as well. I get compliments on this. I would describe it as a muted berry shade that would probably be flattering on most skin tones. It's creamy, applies smoothly and has as much staying power as your average lipstick. It's matte but moisturizing so my lips don't look dry when I wear this …Read more

Love this!!! I used to use Anastasia brow products until I found this more affordable alternative (about $10 at Ulta and they always have NYX sales, so you can get it for even less). Works beautifully. I am brunette and I use the color ash brown which I would describe as a cool, dark brown. It goes on smoothly and does not budge or smudge. Awesome staying power even on my oily skin and looks so …Read more

Love this! Even though I regularly use Retin-A, I still get the occasional pimple or painful cyst. This is not a miracle overnight product but it does shrink large bumps much quicker than my Retin-A ever has, in addition to reducing the pain. Each time I use it, it's been very effective in drying up and treating pimples. The last time I used it on a cyst, it faded within 3-4 days versus a …Read more

Let me start by saying that I love tarte products. I just don't love this concealer. I'm NC20 and got the light shade. It was a shade too light to cover any imperfections on my face. The other colors, however, were either too pink or too dark. (Light Medium Honey, Light Medium Beige, Medium). Basically, none of the shades really matched me. On top of that, the concealer didn't last …Read more

Great coverage. Better than the MAC Studio Fix Fluid that I used to wear. I still get oily by the end of the day with this but it does help with oil control and covering blemishes. For my acne prone skin, it was a little heavy for everyday wear and I did get clogged pores with this... But I just love how pigmented it is. I now use it as a concealer to cover up spots here and there versus using it …Read more

Feb/19/2015

Ewww. Did not like this at all. Purchased it yesterday, tried it once and already returned it this afternoon. Before I bought it, I read rave reviews and I normally love Tarte products. This concealer matched my skin perfectly but had a very emollient, oily consistency which made it look shiny and also made it slide around my face. Since I already have oily skin, the Maracuja oil in the concealer …Read more

Love this cleanser. For years, I was using Boscia but I find that this works better and is a lot less expensive. It's gentle, non drying, makes my face feel soft and clean and removes makeup very well. Way better than my old expensive Boscia cleanser ever did. Highly recommended!

I've been wearing this foundation for a little over three months. I'll use up what I have but I won't be repurchasing. I find this to be too sheer for my taste but too drying to be layered on. The oil control lasts for about four hours for me until I need to blot or power my face. It's a decent foundation overall but for the hefty $42 price tag, I expect much better coverage …Read more
