      I have been using this product over a year now, and I use it every day. I have to save a and have noticed that this product calms my skin, rather than agitating it like other products I've tried in the past. My skin is clearer and smoother than ever before and I am especially impressed with how my Tate foundation lasts all day and doesn't come off until I wash my face in the evening. I love it and recommend it to all my family, friends and clients.

        I LOVE this foundation. It makes my skin look perfect and feel good even after I take it off. I dab some on my face with my fingers, then use a beauty sponge to blend it out. The coverage is great, medium-full without feeling heavy. My dry skin loves it, so smooth and silky. It slightly oxidizes but not too bad. I usually don't set this with a powder either.

            I use foundation daily. This was my 1st time trying anything by Tarte, and I absolutely LOVE it! It covers uneven skin tone & blemish scars with minimal amount of product used. It is layeranle for the one darker scar I have. Lasts all day, no new breakouts with product. And I love the finished look. Kind of matte with a gentle "dewy" look, my skin looks fresher and younger, and I no longer use compact powder on top of my foundation.

            I love everything about this product but the reason I am going to return it is because it left my face looking too powderly. I prefer a natural finish but this was like I padded a bunch of powder on my face and it even left sections of my face dry.

              • Q:

                I suffer from eczema on my face. Also used to have acne very bad until I started using the Tarte powder foundation! Would the Tarte liquid foundation cause my eczema to flare up? Sometimes the Tarte powder can really show the scaliness on my face.
