I seriously love this stuff BUT I do have some problems. I did not like or use the brush, and therefore do not see it necessary to receive a new brush with every purchase. I don't like having to incur the cost of the brush when I'm not even going to use it. Secondly there needs to be more color options. The "fair" would be too light and the "light" which is what I purchased had too much of a yellow tint too it, I would have to blend in some powder too make it blend with my skin tone. The things that I did like however was how moisturizing it was without making my skin oily. It also provided great coverage that covered my acne scars. If they would change those two things I mentioned before I would buy again.

I don't know why this isn't a best seller! The formula is so silky and smooth. I had been using the amazonian clay liquid foundation 12 hr full coverage but it was showing dry patches in this cold weather we've been having. So I bought this and it is wonderful. Coverage is medium and build able. The brush it comes with applies the foundation flawlessly. I love the added benefits of this foundation being a BB and spf. I hope they keep this formula around because I will definitely continue to buy it! If you try it you will not be disappointed! I have combo skin that has hormonal acne tendencies.

I love this foundation; that said I am an official tartlette. As with most tarte products a little goes a long way. Some reviewers didn't want a brush every time, I personally, love the brush; I received it in a set, and yes at first it seemed odd shaped, but I fell instantly fell in love, it sweeps so effortlessly back and forth it just applies make up so evenly. It really gives my skin that airbrushed look and makes applying along the jawline so much easier. I use my extra brushes to apply skin care products, as odd as that sounds - I was use to using my fingertips, but using this brush uses much less product and spreads so much more evenly, I now use some for skin care at night and under my makeup using it to apply primer. My absolute favorite primer is tarte clean slate poreless 12-hour perfecting primer it really perfects and smooths my skin. I am not sure why Smashbox has such a reputation for primers, they just leave my skin slick, greasy and shiny, while tarte absorbs and controls oil. For my oily skin I use Dr. Brandt's pores no more underneath it all. Sound like a lot of product but both pores no more and tarte do absorb oil and together give a smooth finish. (Try a web site for Dr. Brandt pores no more its 30% off and 1 bottle lasts more than a year.) Sorry so long and I know I do get off point, just trying the most of the products out there, hope this helps some of you get more use out of the extra brushes. This foundation truly wears better when its over tarte 12 hour than Smashbox primers.

I used the Maracuja Miracle Foundation for several years, but since it's been discontinued I've struggled finding a foundation that works for my skin. I have very sensitive skin, even the other Tarte BB creams break me out even though I love how they look. This foundation looks beautiful on, it is a very soft focus look, and I even slept in it (not recommended) just to see what would happen and no breakouts whatsoever. I was afraid the light would be too light, but it looks very nice on. I wore light in the Maracuja foundation, but it has a yellower tone to it. I am a soft autumn coloring so I have yellow undertones, but this foundation in light does not wash me out even though it is not as yellowish. I think I will need the medium for summer, or maybe a combination of the two. Would like to be able to buy without the brush. Although the brush is very nice, you only need so many brushes! I actually use the brush more for my bronzer, the foundation goes on very well with my fingers. Appears to last well all day long, and gives a very natural healthy glow to skin. I really love this foundation!

I LOVE this foundation- the amazon clay one is too drying for my dry skin, the regular BB cream has too sheer a coverage for me, the 12 hour tinted primer has a heavy dimethicone base which makes me start to break out after a few days, and I don't like powders. I was using the maracuja foundation and when the discontinued it I gave this one a shot and it is my FAVORITE. I am very upset that they recently stopped making my shade- tan :( SO I bought the medium and deep and am hoping to mix them.. we will see if that works or not. With the discontinuation of a few shades for this product- I am praying they aren't discontinuing it all together!! This is always my luck but I love it and am really hoping I can continue to purchase it.

I have been using Tarte's BB cream for a long time and was intrigued by this product. I use "fair" in the bb cream and chose "light" for this foundation. The first time I used this, I knew the color was going to be too dark, but decided to use it anyway. It made my skin very, very oily. The brush that comes with it didn't do much for me either. Very disappointed, as I had high hopes for this product. Will go back to using my tried and true BB cream.

Really like this makeup. Paired with the airbrush foundation powder it gives full coverage without looking cakey. Seems to stay on well all day and I live in humid Florida. Just wish it came in a lighter shade. Light blends ok for me but honestly I like the way Fair looks better. Im usually the lightest color in any line.

I got this product last week and I've been wearing it consecutively for 6 days now. I was hesitant to buy it at first because it's so new and there were not many reviews to be found, I typically research things to death before I invest in them. However, I love nearly every Tarte product that I've used and the Amazonian Clay 12 hour foundation is the closest thing I have ever found to my holy grail. I have sensitive skin and Tarte products are one of the few that I have found that don't randomly make me breakout with painful cystic acne marks. The 12 hour Amazonian Clay foundation does tend to create little tiny whiteheads around my chin for some reason, but I'd rather deal with those than the cystic breakouts in the middle of my forehead that many other products cause me. It has many benefits that outweigh the cons for me. This summer I have also been loving the Amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer, it has great coverage for a TM and the shade matches me perfectly, but that's another review.
During these humid summer months in the midwest, I have felt that the 12 hr AC foundation was feeling a bit heavy on my skin and with my tan it was more coverage than I need right now - and I love the BB TM but it didn't have quite the coverage I was looking for for workday wear. I was browsing the Tarte website and came across the beyond BB perfecting liquid foundation (that's a mouthful), it immediately had my interest. I took a chance and bought it without being able to research it first and I'm so glad that I did. I have been wearing it for the last 6 days and I love it. I think it might even replace the 12 hr AC foundation permanently for me, provided I can find a shade for the winter. I have combination skin, am NC 20ish - light skin with slight warm undertones leaning toward olive. I wear Light in this foundation and it works well for now during the summer, it's very slightly too yellow but no one can tell but me, it's really a great match considering I have such a hard time finding anything remotely close to my coloring anywhere else. The tone of Tarte AC 12 hour foundation in Light-Medium Sand is nearly perfect for me but it's slightly too dark unless I'm really tan - Light is my next closest match, I can wear Light in AC 12 hr foundation, beyond BB perfecting liquid foundation, and BB 12 hr primer. I have the BB tinted moisturizer in Light-Medium and it is perfect, probably because it is more sheer than the 12 hr foundation. The beyond BB perfecting liquid foundation is very natural, it looks like I'm wearing nothing at all yet it covers my slight imperfections beautifully (I have some old acne scar marks). It's a satiny finish and some people might not like that it has a very slight tacky feel, it never completely dries down, at least in my experience. I am not a fan of powders though so this doesn't bother me and I actually quite like it - it looks and feels like healthy skin. I think it would be easily remedied though with a light dusting of finishing powder if you're averse to the very slight tackiness of the finish. The brush it comes with is great and works really well with this, though I prefer to apply my foundations with a slightly damp beauty blender sponge most of the time. Before I apply this foundation I use Smashbox photofinish primer, then a light coverage of the BB tinted moisturizer in Light-Medium applied with my fingers, then I squeeze out a blob of beyond BB foundation onto the back of my hand. I dip the sponge into the foundation and proceed to dot/stipple the foundation all over my face to blend. I usually do one light layer, let it set a minute, then apply another light layer in places where I need more coverage. This foundation builds beautifully but like any other, you don't want to layer too much or you will be more susceptible to separation later. If I need more coverage in areas, like if I have an active angry blemish, I will dot on concealer to finish. This foundation has great, solid medium coverage - it covers all of my old scars and discolorations flawlessly but will let the redness of a new blemish show through, but that's what concealer is for. I use Tarte AC 12 hour waterproof concealer in light-medium honey, for reference. All of these Tarte products work very well together. So far, the beyond BB foundation does not make my chin breakout like the 12 hr AC foundation which is one of many contributing factors to why I will probably switch to this permanently. Its staying power is pretty good, I use a primer and set all of my makeup with Skindinavia 16 hour setting spray so I know that greatly helps the staying power of anything I'm wearing. The first 3 days that I wore this foundation it was put through a major stress test. I was working 12+ hour days outside in the 80 degree humidity, sweating and unable to really touch up. After about 6 hours I had some separation occurring around my nose, my chin, and between my eyebrows (my oiliest areas) but I just dabbed with my beauty blender sponge to blend the separation back down and it was fine. I surprisingly still had pretty great coverage at the end of the day, though I was sweaty and tired looking which was to be expected. The foundation did not fade and did not get patchy, it just looked sweaty but so did the rest of me. I was pretty impressed. I typically work normal 8 hr days in an air conditioned office and it holds up beautifully all of the work day with minimal to no touch ups, and looks great for a few more hours after work if I go out. I expect a lot out of my makeup, foundation especially - I expect them to look good for 12 hours with minimal touch-ups even in extreme circumstances, I expect medium coverage and a healthy natural finish, and I expect them to not irritate my skin. The beyond BB perfecting liquid foundation excels at all of those things. I am impressed and I will definitely repurchase. I hope they make it available without the brush in the near future because I don't need to be spending extra money for the brush every time... Sorry for the long winded review, I have so many good things to say about this... If you don't read it all, just buy it and try it for yourself! I hope you're as impressed as I am!

This is the best Tarte foundation I have used to date. It goes on smooth and gives me an even complexion. It's not too thick or too watery. I absolutely love the brush that comes with it - it provides for a flawless application and is very soft. Highly recommended!

I love this product! I went into my local sephora and wanted to try a new BB cream. I tried this one and absolutely fell in love with product! I can wear it everyday to work and its super light. It blends perfectly with my tan/deep complexion blending everything together. I would definitely recommend this product. It provides great coverage alone and even better when paired with the Tarte foundation! I will continue to purchase this product again and again!

I only received this product three days ago. I was weary of spending this much money on a product that seemed to have little to no review anywhere on the internet. But I am VERY glad i took the risk because this product leaves the perfect finish on my face. I've been using tarte's regular bb cream for a little over a year now and recently it just hasnt been doing the same job it used to for me. The tarte beyond BB perfecting liquid foundation blends into my skin perfectly. It actually looks like I'm wearing little to no makeup while providing great coverage of my minor acne and red areas. I am thoroughly impressed and will definitely be purchasing this product again. :)
