“Tarte Foundation”
By on

I have pretty bad acne and was looking for a foundation to cover all of the acne and redness. So I went to Sephora and they said I should try tarte. That was the best decision I made. It doesn't break me out, its easy to blend, and is light. I also use the Tarte concealer which works really well too. Definitely is a must have!!

Pros

  • Light
  • Very full covergae
  • Doesnt break me out :)

Cons

  • Expensive (but worth it)
  • for a few weeks
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

“Very Full coverage”
By on

I got this as a sample from sephora when I was on the hunt for a full coverage hypo allergenic makeup. This is didn't like I got the lightest color they offered and it was still way to dark and my face isn't pale so I'm not sure whey there light is so dark. Coverage wasn't full. I had to build coverage and by the end of covering what I needed covered I looked like a clown, then the next morning I had new zits! Yaay

Pros

  • Decent coverage
  • SPF

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Colors weren't good for my skin tone
  • This made me break out
  • for about a week
  • $ 52
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

As someone with acne, I'm always looking for that finished look that doesn't make me look like I have it. This was recommended to me by a consultant at Sephora. I suggest going there, and having them put it on you to see how it looks. It really covers up all imperfections, but still looks natural. You can put it on with a brush, which makes it so easy to apply and blend. The only downside is that it doesn't look very good when your skin gets flaky. I try not to wear makeup and only moisturize when my skin gets that dry, but if you must wear it, just exfoliate and moisturize before applying. This really goes for any foundation out there. At least get a sample and try it out. It's awesome!

Pros

  • Great coverage
  • 12 hour
  • Very light on skin
  • Fragrance Free
  • Balances oil
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Lasts a long time

Cons

  • Doesn't look that great on flaky skin, but what does, really?
  • Expensive. But I feel bad even saying this because it's SO worth it!
  • moderate
  • for a few months
  • $ 38
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I was in the market for a new foundation. Went to sephora and bam.... Win win! This stuff covers imperfections so well that I don't even need very much concealer! It feels light too. The bonus is that it's all natural stuff, so should not irritate the skin. So far, no breakout. I love it! It is expensive, but you don't need much so it should last a fair amount of time. Great coverage!!!!!

Pros

  • Long wearing
  • Great coverage
  • Satin finish
  • Non irritating
  • All natural ingredients
  • Balances oils in skin
  • Doesn't feel like you are wearing heavy makeup
  • Fragrance free

Cons

  • Expensive
  • moderate
  • for a day or two
  • $ 38
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
