    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

    I absolutely love this foundation. I have dry skin and still have acne problems from time to time and this foundation makes my skin look beautiful no matter what. The color I picked matches perfectly with my skin it looks like I don't have anything on. It last longer than any other foundation I have tried and still looks phenomenal hours later. The only complaint I would have about this foundation is the packaging, its beautiful but so inconvenient and messy, but with how great this foundation is, it doesn't bother me. Will definitely repurchase.

      I've been using this foundation for several months now and I LOVE IT! It's a bit pricey but totally worth it. A little bit goes a long way so one jar lasts for 3 or 4 months. I always get complements on how good my skin looks and people asking me what foundations I use, which has never really happened before! The biggest plus is that Tarte is a cruelty free company

        I use a brush I bought at ulta seperate from the tart brand for 24.99$ and it works great with this foundation. I've bouguht it for the last four months and will continue to use it. It's full coverage and light weight and easy to apply. My skin is dry and oily in places I have to use s finishing powder after and by the end of the day my nose is shiny but it lasts in other zones just fine all day.

          Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation:

          I wanted to try a new foundation to match my winter skin tone and this one caught my eye when I was shopping at Ulta. The first time I tried it, I used a beauty blender and the results were not so good. But, I gave it another shot with my real techniques brush and it was amazing! The coverage is great and it blends into the skin effortlessly.

                While I do think I'll like this more as it gets colder and drier in the winter, it made this combination gal look like a grease ball during the summer. Looked beautiful when first applied though, and I can see it working for people with dry skin.
