Loveeee the feel of this foundation on my skin! I did get too dark of a shade but I feel like this oxidizes turning a bit orangey. I mixed that with another lighter foundation (Amazonian clay, older formula) and it was just perrrrfect. I look forward to trying all of Tarte’s foundations ??

I’ve been loving this foundation for a more full coverage look! I have moist skin and this has not been irritating my skin at all. I would say the colors are a little lighter when comparing to other foundations. I ordered a darker shade and it matched my skin perfectly!

decent coverage - very light
I tried this product based on a promo and had never used it before. I have been more pleased than expected - especially from a brand that I usually only get mascara from. It's a very light coverage but can bebuilt up. It feels good on and not cakey at all. Would highly recommend for a natural but polished look.

I love it. New favorite for sure.
I figured I’d give this foundation a try because it was part of a promotion. I used the virtual shade matcher. It ended up being perfect! Matches my skin tone perfectly and it has really good coverage without being cakey and too much. I wish I would have tried this years ago.

My new effortless just woke up like this fancy face
Loving this lightweight formula. I'm one for tinted moisturizers and effortless time spent on getting ready. I wanted something a little bit more buildable and long lasting than the average tinted moisturizer and tried this out. This is very longlasting even without stayspray and its super lightweight, breathable, and moisturizing but not buttery (and buildable coverage but not heavy or cakey). Instantly gives a fresh look and doesn't crease. Perfect for my dry/normal skin combo and covering darkness below the eyes. If you don't like a just woke up like this look, you may not like it but I bet you'll love that ;). Makes the morning routine effortless - just add a bit of blush, mascara and a lip balm to make an easy to go routine. A+ for low maintenance effort and high quality reward! Pair with your fave moisturizer for extra hydration and its a match in hydration heaven. I look forward to trying Tartes other hydrating formulas they've come out with in the SEA line (my ultimate favorite!)

P.s. I Love that they are making skin tones for people with a neutral lighter skin palette but with olive undertones - something I never could find before with such a good quality product that aligns with my values + sensitive skin needs.

Summer Must have
Great for summer, specially for those who are outdoors a lot- pool lovers, lake, ect. Liquid formula that you can certainly tell more of a watery like consistency. I think normally that could be a negative quality but it actually is a perfect combo that makes it JUST right. The use of water in the formula really does offer great hydration for skin, and i felt it's buildable like many Tarte products, once application is finished, it has a very breathable feeling quality for having a face fully done up in make-up! That's why I've liked it so much for outdoors and being by pool, sporting events- the list goes on!

Looks good for the first two hours
I like this foundation, but it’s not my absolute favorite. It looks very natural but doesn’t have very good staying power, I find it looks like I’m not even wearing it after just a few hours. Pretty light coverage, helps to even out skin tone but doesn’t really cover blemishes, I use the hydrocealer on top to help cover spots which works pretty well.
