            This product was recommended to me by an Ulta customer service member, as I asked for a full coverage foundation that's good with oily skin. I absolutely love this foundation! Dries on almost "clay-like", but very smooth and matte. Hasn't caused any breakout.

              i do not recommend this item at all! from dry skin to oily! it flakes with dry skin and slides off with oily, the infallible matte pro ( drugstore brand) is better than this. it feels heavy and not full coverage, I use primer and setting spray and it will not stay in place. i bought mine a while back so I'm just trying to finish the rest. i bought the urban decay all nighter and that one is a lot better on coverage and long lasting!

              I'm iffy on this , it blends well but feels a bit heavy . My face is also dry so it actually gives no hydration relief. However it seems to be great for a night out , not so much everyday use.

                  I loved the Tarte foundation. I typically apply it with a damp beauty blender to get a light, natural, medium coverage for day-to-day wear. It's smooth and easy to blend. Also works well as a foundation to do a powder contour on top of.

                        A:

                        It should be printed on the back of the tube. Sorry the print is light colored so it doesn't stand out! If you still have the box, the shade is also printed there. You could take it to your nearest Ulta store as well to have them shade match it for you.
