Love this foundation!
I've heard things about Tarte foundations and decided to try this one out. I love it! Very lightweight and great coverage. I bought another one after the first ran out.

Great for dry skin!
I love this foundation so much that I've been using it exclusively for almost 4 years! I have dry skin, especially in the wintertime and i love that it doesn't cake on my dry patches or irritate my skin. I also love that it's lightweight enough to not cover my freckles.

Love it!!!
This is my go-to foundation!!! I’ve tried pretty much everything on the market, and this one is a keeper! I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and this covers without making it look caked on. It’s a must have for me!!

Great overall
I love that this foundation is thin and can be built up. Coverage is not as great as the shape tape foundation, however I love it because I live in a hot and humid environment and this just makes life a bit less sticky and cakey. Great foundation for the summer!!

nice light consistency and natural look
I really like the consistency, it is easy to blend and gives a natural look. I bought the travel size to test it first. It is water-based, so you might need a water-based primer.
It works well for my combination skin.

Very good foundation on the way out
This was one of my favorite foundations, and I have tried them all! My only problem was the color selection. I was matched at Sephora as fair neutral, because it was the closest to a shade in another brand’s product that I couldn’t use because it had fragrance. This product doesn’t have fragrance, and honestly, I don’t know why any of your products do, I would be using many more if they were FF. But this foundation is light but covers, doesn’t exaggerate fine lines, and can be applied with fingers, brush or sponge with good results. So why has Tarte begun eliminating shades and Sephora stopped carrying it? My only conclusion is that it is being discontinued! After they expanded the line to include a concealer, a mascara, and multiple LE palettes. Why?? The only other foundation that comes in my shade and is FF is the Foundcealer (can’t spell the product’s name that begins with B without losing this post). Unfortunately, it runs a drop more yellow than the Rainforest of the Sea foundation, and doesn’t come in a Fair Beige shade to either mix with or replace with. Rainforest came in both Fair Beige and Fair Neutral, or used to! I haven’t found a perfect match in foundation since Prescriptives went out of business years ago. Bobbi Brown briefly had a shade named Cool Beige that was a perfect match when I was slightly tan, but their shade range was quickly changed by Estée Lauder and that shade is now much darker. So where does that leave me? Possibly trying the Porcelain Beige in the foundcealer and adding a drop to the Fair Neutral, or keep shopping. But why discontinue a foundation that was rated number one by the editor of the iconic beauty blog “Temptalia”. So if they still have your shade, I highly recommend this product, but I fear it may not be around long, and some of the new foundations like the constantly reinvented Shape Tape, and the revamped Amazonian Clay foundation contain fragrance, which eliminates them from my consideration.

My Favorite Go To!
This was the first foundation I ever bought and I always end up coming back to it. It's lightweight, light to medium coverage, and so natural looking! it's everything I love and more. I'm not very good with makeup and like a natural no-makeup makeup look and it does exactly that. They no longer have my shade anymore and I am so upset!!!

I tried this on a whim, but went a little too dark. I will go a shade lighter next time. I love the coverage and the way it covers dark circle and fine lines. It's just a little too dark so I have to add a little water on my sponge to lighten the amount I would normally use. It's a great foundation.

Holy Grail
I have tried nearly 50 foundations and this is the only one that is my exact skin tone. I am very fair skined and the lightest shades in other foundations usually end up being orange on myself, but not this one! Makes my skin looks flawless, is long lasting, and is the perfect shade match. So thankful to not only have found a foundation that is my shade, but also a foundation that has a very good formula. One question would be is why it's no longer sold at Sephora anymore.
