                    I bought this foundation after it was recommended to me by an employee at ULTA and another specialty beauty store. I originally bought it because I wanted a cruelty free foundation. I had read awesome reviews online about it, so thought that there was no risk in buying the foundation. I got matched up in ULTA, and bought the product shortly after. After cleansing and priming my skin I applied the foundation. It went on smoothly, but I found that I had to blend A LOT to get even coverage. After application my skin looked awesome, I then applied my all time favorite bronzer (Tarte as well). After an hour or so after applying the foundation I looked in the mirror and found that the foundation had oxidized and turned an orangey hue...it looked awful. I still have the foundation, but I have only used it a couple of times- to test whether or not I was just having a bad makeup day. Nope! It has done the same thing every time I've worn it. Sucks because I love Tarte's products normally.

                        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.

                      It doesn't matter what primer or setting spray I use, after about two hours this foundation settles into my pores something terrible. I apply using damp beauty blender. I really love the coverage and the texture of this foundation. Is there any advice you can give?

                    • Q:

                      I'm looking into buying this foundation. I've heard it's full coverage. I want my make up to still look light and not over done, but I like to have a matte or powdery finish. Do you recommend using just this product, something on top, or do you have another product you think would work better? I want to have all day coverage, with little oil, but not look over done. The make up I use now comes off my nose half way through the day or whenever I touch it, which is very annoying.
