    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    I love tarte products and was excited to try but am overall underwhelemed. I find this foundation to be moisturizing and leaves the skin feeling soft and sweet. However I have combination skin and By mid day my face looks and feels very oily. The coverage is light and melts off. I won't rebuy.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

      I would repurchase. A little goes a long way, so I applied too much the first time I used it. It leaves a pretty , dewy finish. It is pretty full coverage, but depending on how much you apply , it appeared to have a medium coverage in me the second time I used it. I have it 4/5 stars b/c it does seem to slide around on your face a little bit if you don't use a primer or a very light dusting of setting powder. I have combination skin, dry cheeks but shiny t-zone ,and this foundation did not cling to my dry patches or make my pores stand out b/c my skin is a little dry. It has a nice creamy but not heavy texture. It may be too dewy for oily skin...for my skin type, I'd give it a 4/5 for how long it lasted a normal 8 hour outing. Not bad duration but it isn't "budge proof".

            Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

            I was unfortunately disappointed in this foundation. Admittedly, part of it is my own fault. After a few days of use, the shade I purchased (light medium honey) became too dark. I was switching from another brand that had yellowed on my skin after several days of use.
            What I did not like about the product overall is that, once applied, it simply did not stay on. If anything touched my face, the foundation transferred. I was unable to find a solution.

              Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

              What attracted me about this product was the price with the 30% off that Ulta had last week. I took advantage of it after I bought one and went back for two more. This product is a hybrid very thin looking, but amazingly gives full coverage...I wanted something light and this has it; full coverage, light weight, and since summer is soon to arrive, i wanted something like this...
              It does not have sunscreen, but I'm always accustomed to putting sunscreen before any foundation...
              This does have hyaluronic acid which gives you that fresh drink to any skin without drying it and that is important to me...
              So with this said this product has hydrating skills in it without adding more than the sunscreen...
              I'm am supper happy with this foundation!!!

              The coverage is nice, goes on smooth, and does not make my skin feel oily. I feel like the packaging choice is not necessary. It makes it harder to travel and store it with big bulky containers like the one it comes in.

                    A:

                    Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptors to determine the best match for your skin tone & undertone or stop by your nearest Ulta to test the shades out on your skin.

                  Hi. Need a foundation that lasts ALL day but more importantly doesn't make me look older by settling in my mini lines. Is this a good one. Do I need a primer and do I need to set with powder? Thank you

                    This foundation lasts for 12 hours with an ultra-creamy creasefree formula. You can pair it with a primer or setting powder but it's not necessary with this formula.
