I am so happy with this foundation

By Jenny

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Good Pigmentation

Cons

  • Too Greasy

Best Uses

  • Full Coverage
  • Sensitive Skin

Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

I use this on top of my primer along with the shape tape concealer and I have great coverage it smooths out all my dark spots and blemishes and you only need a tiny bit. I was a little hesitant because I love the amazonian clay foundation by Tarte and I have combination skin so trying something else was not in my plans. But I find it works best with applying with a wet beauty sponge, a setting spray, and a light layer of translucent powder to cancel out some of the heavy look and greasiness of the foundation but overall I am very happy with the foundation and would recommend it and have already to my make up loving friends.

    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    This foundation is surprisingly full coverage for the consistency. It's very lightweight, but covers really well. It hydrates and doesn't accentuate texture. Some foundations that are drier tend to settle into creases, just from my face moving throughout the day - not this bad boy. Smooth and flawless all day. I usually set my undereyes and jawline with this foundation, and I haven't had any problems with it transferring. Looks and feels great all day. Definitely a formula for drier skin, but it did hold up well to my t-zone oil.

    fantastic finish

    By Arrow

    from Westwood, MA

    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    bought this in 2 colors! buffs in perfectly with the Tarte brush and doesn't dry my skin out. you can also use a dampened beauty blender, but I prefer the buffing brush. a little goes a long way so I won't need to repurchase for a while. love the natural finish. let dry for about a minute before building the coverage with another layer. doesn't budge once set so great to use with cream bronze or contour. I have very dry skin with cool undertones and use a serum primer underneath this to lock in my moisturizer and this foundation goes on like butter over it. I'm a fan!

        I use other Tarte product and they work well for me but this foundation didn't work well for me. I always apply powder after foundation to set it but I noticed that there were streaks from the brush. It just wasn't for me.

            I love this foundation. It gives a nice dewy and glowy finish!
            I would say it gives medium coverage and can feel a tad greasy, but if you finish with powder it isn't so bad.
            Would definitely buy again!

            I like this fuller coverage foundation better than the medium matte finish tarte foundation. It applies well with the tarts brush and has a smooth finish. The only problem is I work 13 hr days and by the end of the day it's not all there!!

                Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptions or stop by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test out the different shades on your skin. This foundation lasts for 12 hours.
