Smooth skin is in with this radiant, full-coverage foundation from tarte. Infused with hyaluronic acid, the unique oil-free blend of ingredients is wrapped in a luxurious, creamy gel to help moisturize and reduce the look of fine lines and pores. The cooling gel feels like a drink of water for your skin, while masking any redness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone across skin types. It's available in a range of shades to match any skin tone with a soft, rose scent and natural, radiant finish.

How do I use it: For seamless, mess-free application, apply using the custom foundation brush and spatula (not included). Scoop out a quarter size amount of foundation onto the back of your hand. Then, apply foundation in buffing, circular motions until even and full coverage is achieved.

From tarte.

tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation! I had my concerns about this foundation because of all the bad reviews but I decided to try it for myself and I'm hooked. The coverage is better than any other foundation I've tried,you have to only use a small amount to get the coverage you desire. I use a brush and a sponge to apply this foundation and it looks so flawless on my skin..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use the right tool, it is fabulous foundation Don't be put off by the bad reviews. It is a jar, it is full. You want to get what you pay for, right? Inside the lid is another plastic cover. KEEP IT. Gently lift this off when you are ready to use the foundation. Take the foundation you need from the bottom of the lid. It doesn't spill as it is a gel. I don't know if they are turning the container upside down, laying it on the side or what. I have never had an issue. I use the tart brush from the clay foundation I used to use. I had to switch to this foundation as I am older and my skin has changed. I have dryer skin now, this works better on skin that needs some moisture put into it. A little goes a long way. If you use too much, it will settle into lines as would any foundation. Start small, you can add more. It is a full coverage foundation, less is really more. I do agree, a loose powder is nice to add on top as the foundation is "dewy". However, it you use too much powder you will have a less than desirable result. Again, this is your face. You are not a movie star on tv, you don't need a lot. Look natural, use sparingly. Put the powder on the brush, tap it to take excess of and gently sweep over face once for a beautiful, fresh and flawless look. I love this foundation, if applied right, I think you will, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible One of the worst foundations I have ever tried. The packaging is horrible and so is the foundation. The foundation doesn't dry down all the way only on my dry spots making them flaky and noticeable. One of the cakeiest foundations ever too. Would never repurchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Foundation I have tried a ton of different foundations including expensive Gorgio Armani which is what I was using until I tried this foundation. It isn't perfect but so far I like it the best. If feels wonderful on the skin. I am 41 with aging dry skin and this foundation feels great and last the workday. You will need to set it with a very light dusting of powder otherwise it will stay sticky and will transfer. If you try to use a heavy coverage, you will not like it, go light as possible with application. Heavy application will settle in lines. I use a brush and then go over my face with a beauty blender. The packaging is not the best but I do like being able to get just a tad on my finger to apply to my face. I would prefer a pump, not sure why Tarte chose this packaging but it is doable. 4 stars because of the packaging

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just Okay Not too impressed with this foundation. It's messy since it's a big container full of foundation. Sent it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hot Goopy Mess I bought this from Tarte, with very high hopes. I absolutely hate the packaging!! It is SO messy to get the product out of the jar, it is not a nice whipped consistency, it is wet fluid with a tad bit of firmness. Upon closing the product it goops around the lid where you screw it back to the base. I returned it immediately! I don't even care if it works or not, cant get past the packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Find Talk about creamy, easy to apply full coverage. Makes my 51 year old, red undertone skin look even toned and younger and it stays on all day! Definitely recommend.
