    This is the first foundation I've been able to find my true shade (without any oxidation). Love that I can just dip my beauty blender in the jar and not having to pour foundation all over my hand. Gives me a great dewy finish.

    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    I have extremely pale skin, to the point where most foundation's palest shades are way too dark. This shade is perfect, it matches my neck exactly, and covers all of my redness. You only need the tiniest amount to cover your face for full coverage, anything more would make it heavy and greasy. It has a very dewy and luminous finish, and is the foundation I've gotten the most compliments on! Overall a very good foundation, but I would not recommend it if your face has a tendency to get oily.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

      I take a small amount and put it all over my face to even out my skin tone. It blends beautifully, doesn't bunch up on my face (i.e. around my nose), and it doesn't feel heavy, either. Previously I tried to stick to cushion foundations (where you can hardly get product out) or BB/CC creams (that ended up being too oily). This might end up turning into a holy grail product. Highly recommend.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

      I'll first start with the good stuff. The foundation does last all day last me about 10 hours before it starts fading. Downside that the sales lady told me that it was full coverage but it's more a medium coverage but other than that I love this foundation.

        I have been searching for a good foundation. They either don't cover up my red pigmentation or its heavy & has the caked on look. I have tried cheap brands & more expensive brands. The sales lady suggested this to me & am I ever glad she did! I absolutely love it! I do use IT brand pore loose powder over it. Gives it a finished look that lasts all day!

            Teenproduct in itself is very sticky. It is very easily blendable into the skin, the only con is that when it is on even for a longer period of time, you have to powder finish it..a lot. I am not one to usually powder to make it not sticky and this just makes the product feel heavy.

              First time applying this foundation I was shook. I usually have the problem of my nose looking like foundation polka dots, which I loath. This foundation, I was shook by how it looked like skin and did not accentuate my pores on my nose. It is comfortable to wear, long wearing even in summer heat! I'm in medium sand, since I'm tan from summer, will def get my winter color of this foundation! Definitely a hidden jem, I was surprised that it hasn't got that much of a wow on YouTube! I saw a guru use this and her skin looked really good and healthy looking had to try for myself! Definitely not regretting this purchase! Love it I even love it better than born this way, and that was my go to!

                  We would suggest using a smoothing primer before applying all foundations Foundation should fill in lines, it should simple cover them and this product does that with the use of a primer

                For the shade "porcelain" what undertone does it lean? I'm extremely pale (drugstore foundations are always too dark) and I lean strongly yellow. Would Porcelain be a decent match or would it likely be too pink?
