Well, I went to Sephora last night. I was hoping to find a makeup expert. I feel as though my trip was mediocre. The saleswoman asked if I wanted full coverage. Truth be told, the answer is no. I don't want it, do I need medium coverage though, yes of course.

I told her that I wanted something that wasn't matte and that matched my skin tone well, as I tend to have issues with this in the winter. However it had to have no pore clogging additives.

In my experience, the Dermatolgoist always told me to stay away from Department Store makeup, as they had lots of unnecessary fillers. Well, I kind of feel like every makeup, unless I whip it up in my backyard will likely have somethign in it that isnt' great for my face.

Fast Forward a bit----the Tarte Makeup Counter.

Does anyone have experience with Tarte's line of makeup. The woman tested the Tinted Moisturizer on my neck, it matched to a T.

I told her that I wasn't going to purchase today, but would be back after I did my research. She was pleased to send me on my way with a sample so I could try it out for myself.

I went to it this morning and here is the recap:

This would be perfect for me, it matches my skin tone well, but doesn't make me look greyed out. BUT it doesn't cover the blemishes at all. I did all over with this stuff and just spotted on concealer on the blemishes.

I'd love to hear about your experiences with this line. So far so good...I think it kind of smells funny, I don't like when my makeup smells, it makes me nervous. But I don't think I'm going to break out from it.


I can tell you that tarte IS AMAZING! Not only do they use fabulous very eco-friendly company, but they also partially use natural ingredients. A good friend of mine just got his esthetician license and recommends tarte cosmetics, boscia, and korres for the more natural yet very effective results! Highly recommend tarte's tinted moisturizer! Good luck hope this helped!
