Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

I really wanted to try the Amazonian clay liquid foundation in the tube, but they did not have my shade. I had been using this hybrid gel before, and hesitated in buying it again due to its messiness. I do like the new shade I chose, and found that by wiping the jar off and keeping in the box that it does not get as messy. I apply it using a damp makeup sponge. I also use the Amazonian clay powder on top of this as more of a finishing powder, and find that the combination of the two works really well.

Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

I really wanted to love this since I'm a fan of Tarte products. Sadly this is just too "wet" for me. It sits on my skin and won't set. Even with powder it still rubs off on everything - fingers, clothes, my husband, tissues, etc. Thank God for Ulta's awesome return policy! This may be a great product for someone with super dry skin.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

      I've been searching for that holy grail foundation, that is also cruelty free. I've been through about 6-7 different ones, and have finally, finally found it!! This foundation goes on so SO smoothly, and it instantly cools your skin and leaves the perfect dewy (not greasy) look. Because I do have combo skin - I use a mineral primer (Hourglass) on my t-zone, but I cannot recommend this foundation enough. You only need a little bit of this stuff, so I feel like the price really is justified for how long this will last you.

        I have super dry skin so I make sure I mostuzise my face before application. A little goes along way and it's kind of thick at first but I think it's because it's for dry skin but once you've set your face with powder it sets nicely and does NOT feel heavy after that. Love this product

          Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

          The first week or so this foundation caused some clogged pores for me. But I continued using it, guessing that it had something to do with the moisturizing quality of the foundation. And sure enough, my skin adjusted to the foundation.

          This honestly helps my skin. I have exzema on my forehead and dry skin everywhere else so it's difficult for me to find foundations that don't irritate my sensitivities. However, this foundation is perfect!

            Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

            I've been dealing with combination to oily skin. basically, my skin is super greasy after 3-4 our after applying makeup. this is my new favorite. it didn't completely get rid of the oil but it did stop it from happening so fast and it was less noticeable. this also went on matte which was amazing for my skin and it smells different but in an oddly good way lol great product for oily skin!

                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.
