This foundation is the best purchase ever!!!
I am now sold out to tarte Amazonian Clay Collection.
Love, love, love
This is the best foundation ever. I have tried powders, liquids, creams, etc. I have used the best, most expensive brands to the cheapest. This is the best one. I am medium olive and the medium (medium honey) matches me exactly. It covers, yet is light. I don't feel it on my face at all. I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror. I finally found the right one, and I am just turning 60.
oily skin? shiny thru day?lose color?NOT W THIS!
I am overjoyed with this Amazonian clay and on the presentation when you said it absorbs oil that's why I even tried it so I suggest doing that always. My skin gets shiny couple hours after any other foundation and I sweat around my eyes easily lots of oil glands I guess. I also lose color...it just disappears. With this my foundation and the tart blush stay all day and if its into the night and I need just a little touch up I carry the powder form for carrying ease and lightly brush over a touch of the powder foundation. FANTASTIC. Then its like I started over from scratch. So I highly recommend for oily, shine thru, lose color skin and the powder form for carrying with for late day night touch up if needed. LOVE THIS PRODUCT and the blushes stay as well. TRY TRY TRY IF YOUR OILY AND GET SHINEY.
Happy with the brush - Hate the foundation.
I was very disappointed in the foundation. I am very fair with pink undertones and even the lightest color was too dark and yellow for me. I tested out the foundation on my skin and loved the way it felt, but I could see it caking in my fine lines and pores (maybe because it was the wrong color and I didn't use a primer beforehand).
The brush is fantastic!!!! I will not be sending this back due solely on how much I love the brush. I am impressed with how quickly I can achieve flawless results.
I would recommend this set for those with yellow/neutral undertones who are not fair. I would recommend the brush for anyone who uses foundation.
I love this foundation and I cannot go back to store brands now. I never used this brush before and it is great. The brush helps put it on flawlessly! The price is a great also!
I have rosacea and this make-up covers any redness very well. Love the texture of the makeup, heavy, but not too mask-like. A few problems to be aware of though. First of all - the brush is really nice for application, but it is huge. This makes it rather difficult to get to the smaller areas of the face (nose, forehead and the eye area). Cleaning the brush is a nightmare because it is so thick.
Also, it is very difficult to find just the right shade, guarantee you will not hit the right one on the first try. I would suggest a "certain" cosmetics store which carries the Tarte brand - they have tons of shades to offer, rather than the few choices here.
When I first tried this I tried it with just moisturizer on. I used the brush it came with. I then applied powder and blush. I noticed that my pores stood out bad and the coverage looked thick like they use on the deceased. I was not happy at all.
The next day I used this as I usually do with my pore filler and primer. This time I chose to place the foundation on my hand to warm it up. I then dabbed it around my face and took the brush and worked it in. Blending is key. I then used my beauty blender (damp) using a stippling motion pressing it in. Once that was set I concealed, highlighted and contoured my face. I then set it with a matte powder followed by blush. I then took the brush and did a light final blending. I have to say the look is flawless ONLY if you do all of the above. Overall it's a good product. Not the best on the market but would most likely fall into the 10 top foundations. It's REALLY important to THOROUGHLY remove this followed with a good toner. It takes some time to remove so be patient. Follow up with a good eye cream and moisturizer. That's my review. I hope this has been helpful.
This is the BEST full coverage foundation EVER!!!
I just absolutely LOVE tarte products!!! I have only used the concealer for coverage but now use my concealer and then this use her full coverage foundation over. WOW is all I can say. My skin looks flawless! I would recommend her concealer and this and your skin will look beautiful! I can't forget about how GREAT her brushes are, LOVE them!!! I also LOVE her mascara! My eyelashes look so amazing!!
Wish it worked for me
It seems to be full coverage, and the brush is awesome and the color I ordered was perfect, but towards the end of the day, my skin is super tight and flaky, even though I exfoliate often and moisturize daily. But I do LOVE their mascara (Lights, Camera...), the eyeshadows, and the cheek tint. I've had to go back to the higher priced Lancôme foundation I've been using, even though it is not as long lasting, but I don't get tight or flaky face with it. In fairness, could be my age and diabetic-dry skin. I would recommend for a someone with healthier skin.
Best Foundation Ever
I have used a variety of foundations and none compare to this. This is the best I have ever used
I'm really impressed by what the Tarte brand stands for, so I've been trying different products from the line. I'm trying to be much more careful about watching which ingredients are listed on the environmental warning lists, such as inorganic preservatives. As for this foundation, I was pleased with the natural ingredients and sun protection factor of 15. However, I bought the "light" shade, and the color was way off for my light complexion--it had yellow tones and I have pink undertones in my skin coloration. I see now that there's a light-medium, so I wonder if that would fit my skin color better (as it does in other lines). I gave this one away to a friend with yellow/olive tones, but I should've exchanged it right away.
This foundation is pretty good, but i would not consider it "FULL COVERAGE" I have some light hyper pigmentation and it does not cover it all the way.
