    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    I wanted this foundation for a while and bought this a couple months ago. i wanted to use it for a while before I did a review. I like it applied better with a sponge. I have fair skin and this shade is great for me. It evens out my redness and covers my skin evenly. I set it with with my laura gellar balance n brighten and it lasts all day. I don't have any cakey issues. It makes my skin look flawless. I was impressed and it was definitely worth buying for me. I have normal skin type, no dry patches and I dont get oily. Sensitive skin with very mild acne.

        I love this! A little goes a long way and for me was true to color. I use a face brush instead of a sponge to apply. I also purchased a lip duo ...also great value! This was my first experience with Tarte brand. Love it!

          Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

          The foundation glides around my face and is hard to apply because the slightest touch can move it around. Even with powder it seems to still be sticky and wet. It is hard to apply powder products on top because as you apply blush and bronzer, the foundation can move underneath. I had to use an excessive amount of powder to set is as best as I could, which resulted in a very cakey look. Even with all the powder, the foundation on my nose started to separate and in less than an hour it had slid off from one side of my nose perhaps from swiping it with my finger or something. I'm used to foundation that sinks into your skin and dries down and does not budge. This one was a huge disappointment especially for the price. Would not recommend to anyone, but especially not for anyone with oily skin.

          Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

          Great foundation, they told me it was full coverage, but it can be light as well. It fades off of my nose, but to be honest I haven't found a foundation that hasn't. I have normal to dry skin, and it goes on beautifully without clinging to dry patches. It lasts a good 8-10hours even when I'm sweating. It is very hydrating so I don't know if it would be good for oily skin.

            I have been wanting to try this product for a while and finally decided to give it a try! I have tried applying with both a beauty blender and brush, I think it came out best with a beauty blender! It made my skin look really good and it lasted all day! You can build up the coverage which I like. It didnt look cacky or settle in to my smile lines. I am only 23 but I smile a lot so sometimes foundation will just settle into my smile but not with this one! So far no complaints!

              Suggest trying different options, brush, sponge or fingertips to find the look you are after! The jar is not offputting to me because i use a spatula to get the makeup off of the lid! Covers good and is not a mask. I was having issues with ITCC Cream drying out my face! This does not do that. I do have a concern about no sunscreen but i am not out in the sun anyways! :)

                Would this be good for acne prone skin? I was using Amazonian clay foundation but it was a little too heavy for my taste, other than that I loved it and was wondering if this would irritate/cause me to break out.
