Please select an option:

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.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 01-07-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 09-27-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Just Okay Not too impressed with this foundation. It's messy since it's a big container full of foundation. Sent it back. 07-28-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 07-20-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 07-14-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Tarte Foundation ever Great weightless coverage. Stats on, no mwkting, use a face primer od course. Love the whole rainforest line. Does not dry out my dry skin, very moisturizing. 07-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY HYDRATING I've been using this for over a week now and this will be a dream foundation for someone who has dry skin, I have combo skin and it works great on me. A little bit truly does go a long way and I'm a FULL COVERAGE type of girl and with about a layer and a half I can get a good full coverage. It does need to be set thoough because after you apply it your face does look very moisturized, it gives a wonderful cooling feeling and smells like roses my only complaint is the packaging, it's super cute but extremely messy! EVERYTIME I use it, it gets EVERYWHERE, but I think it's worth it :) I'm not sure how this would work for my oily girls out there but for dry or combo it's fantastic :) give it a try! I apply mine with a beauty blender because with a brush it does move around a lot and streak pretty bad so it needs to be PRESSED into the skin. 07-11-16
