Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

at first I was worried it would be too dark, it looks darker in the jar. But, once applied it matched perfectly. this is such a nice foundation. I love the feel & coverage it gives. it doesn't settle into my expression lines, it is looking wearing with a beautiful finish. I do feel like you might need to set it, but, I set all my foundations. highly recommend giving this gem a try.

Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

I received a sample pack with an order I received. I tried and and really liked it so I went and purchased it in the full size. It's very creamy and thick. It only takes a tiny bit so the jar will prob last a very long time which it is already a big jar. It covers and blends well. It feels alittle heavy at first but once it's blended and dries I don't seem to notice it then. It lasts all day. I really like it. I will definitely keep using it and I would recommend it.

    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    I am in my early 40's. I have always had very dry skin with some mild dark spots. I like my foundation to have good coverage but feel weightless and clean and hydrated when on my face. This foundation was WAY too heavy and thick. When I applied it (and I only used a very small amount) it literally looked like a mask on my face. There are many full coverage foundations out there that still allow for your skin to breath and look natural. This does not! It caked on my skin, settled on to dry patches and didn't look clean at all. I literally couldn't WAIT to get home and wash my face!! I will never recommend this to anyone.

      I was hesitant to buy this foundation at first, but I am so glad that I did! I have sensitive skin so I am very picky when it comes to foundation. This product doesn't make me break out at all. My face looks flawless when I use this product. I am very happy with my finished result.

        Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

        I typically use bare minerals bb cream but was looking for a foundation with a bit more coverage. I have very dry and sensitive skin and it's summer in Arizona so something with a lot of moisture was a must. This foundation is wonderful. It's easy to apply (i use a damp beauty blender) and blends really well. My skin has been noticeably less dry since I started using it.

                My only gripe about this product is how messy it is. It comes in a jar and is unhygienic. Other than that, I like most all of tarte's products and I like how this isn't heavy on the skin.

                  Hello, I have very dry skin and I use a very hydrating primer (my Holy Grail) however I notice after I powder (IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores) the area around my mouth gets very crackly and dry looking, where everywhere else looks really nice. Is the powder causing it? Should I not powder in the area? What's the best way to avoid it with this product?

                    A:

                    The barley extract found in the empowered hybrid gel foundation is from a synthetic source and therefore has the moisturizing and anti-aging properties of the ingredient but does not contain gluten. If you have had an allergic reaction, we recommend discontinuing use.
