      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

      This is definitely a foundation that takes some getting used to and beware of applying too much. But that's what makes this foundation great - a little goes a long way. You only need a few dots that you can easily blend with a beauty blender or sponge and the finish looks great. I have fairly dry skin with a few dry patches and this foundation has never noticeably clung to them. The one downside is that it does wear away as the day goes on, but it still remains natural looking. I'm about to hit bottom on my pot and I am definitely buying another!

        I love love love this product! At first I was really unsure about it, but after using it for months I decided I really like it! A little goes A LONG way! It blends really nice. It provides great coverage, and does a great job of covering redness or minor acne. It looks natural and gives you a dewy glow without looking cakey. It does rub off a little, but you could always use a translucent finishing powder to top it off or a setting spray. Will definitely be buying again, and again!

            By Dede

            from USA

            Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

            I bought this foundation when there was a 40% off target double duty promotion. I have used many foundations: Dior, Est�e Lauder, Lanc�me, Tarte Amazonian Clay, Etc. Sadly this product, if I had to rank it, is one of the worst I ever used.
            As for reasons why: the application was messy. The product got all over my fingers, brush, and clothes. The jar is more exhausting than it is classy. I would let jars stick with skincare! The coverage was decent, but it was too cakey for my taste even after I placed translucent powder. It also looked too orangey on my skin (even though this one was the closest to my skin tone.) The foundation set into pores and lines if I didn't use my primer. The foundation didn't dry my skin, but sure did stain some of my clothing. Warning don't touch your face after applying this because it will stain!
            I gave this 4 tries, but I still got a constant unpleasant result. I guess the good things about it is that it's chic and smells nice.

            This product blends really nicely, but it is very heavy and transfers very easily, even when set with powder and setting spray. Every time I touched my face, it came right off. Sadly I had to return it.

              Every time I walked into ulta I would test this foundation and I seemed to love it every time. The day I had finally ran out of my usual foundation, I went out and bought this one. Used my beauty blender to apply and the application was alright. Barely covered any of my red spots and looked super streaky. Plus it seemed like the foundation didn't even set onto my face, seemed as if it was just sitting on top of my face. Looked super cakey when I tried to build it up. Left it on for a couple of hours and when I looked in the mirror I could see dry patches everywhere and my T Zone was oily. Hated it.

              Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

              I really like this foundation but I find I get super oily after a short amount of time. If I wear this foundation all day I find that it separates around the sides of my nose and near my mouth, and becomes patchy in random areas. As long as I am not wearing this foundation for 6-8+ hours it looks beautiful.

              Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

              Tried this because I was looking for more "high end" foundation that wasn't crazy full coverage. And I love this! I definitely recommend getting the brush that pairs with it! At first I wasn't sure about it, but after working with it a bit, and learning how the brush works, I really enjoy the product.
              I love this for an 'easy everyday look.'

                  Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. If your skin is light, you could try light sand if your undertones are more yellow/peach. If your undertones are more pink or neutral, you could try light neutral. We recommend stopping by your nearest Ulta to test the shades out in person!
