    I love the feel and coverage this foundation provides and it doesn't have that terrible perfume smell a lot of other brands incorporate in their formula. This is clean and natural makeup that does the job to help my skin look it's best.

          This has been a staple in my makeup routine. I have tried other foundations, and have always had an issue with breakouts and coverage. Tarte has a high quality product! I recommend this to everyone who asks about good foundation. It is more expensive than drug store foundation, but nothing really compares. Spend the extra money, you won't be sorry.

              My friend uses this and it looks so good on her. I tried this and for a week it came off makeing me look patchy. Now i have very oily skin. Most women do not have my type of skin. I would recommend to all my friends (because their skin is not like mine). I loved that it had the Amazonian clay in it. Read benefits on that for your skin it's pretty good stuff. But for me it just didn't work. I ended up returning and buying the becca foundation and that works better on me.

                As a first timer using this, I never used foundation brush before and it helps that gave a great coverage and it didn't give a burning sensation or making my face breaking out and I love the fact that it didn't make my face dry out or it was making it flaky!! Finally something that last longer than other ones I have been using!!

                    The deep Shape Tape shade can work for a large number of shades for this foundation! Your best bet would be going into a store to find out about your shade match & undertones.

                    Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptions -- they'll tell you the ideal shade for each unique skintone & undertone or stop by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test them out on your skin.
