    I work 8 hour shifts sweating lifting heavy material and it stays in place. Plus I have really oily skin.I have always struggled to find a foundation for oily skin and this is by far the best one. Another bonus it's cruelty free.

          Worth the splurge for me! This is the only foundation I've found that gives me the full coverage I want and actually matches my skins undertones. I am very fair and my skin has pink undertones so I've always struggled to find the perfect shade. Other makeups were almost always too yellow. I love that they not only have fair, light, medium, and dark options, but Tarte also gives you even more shade options within those confines to choose from according to what color your skin's undertone are. You are almost guaranteed to find your perfect match! I use a beauty blender to apply it and it works great (it's important you wet the blender first or else makeup will be wasted because more will get absorbed into the blender.) It's hard to know how well it stays on because I tend to touch my face a lot (bad habit) but I do find that when I use a setting spray (Urban Decay's is great) it stays on impeccably well. Again, worth the splurge. You get what you pay for with the cheap stuff.

              The BEST foundation EVER! I have bought and used SO many other foundations that have not worked, this is by far the best brand I have purchased. So many other foundations claim to be for oily skin but then an hour later your face is shiny and looks blotchy. This is amazing coverage as well! I never have to reapply foundation through out the whole day. I have received so many compliments now that I have been using this product, I hope it's around forever :)

                    I've been wanting to purchase a nice foundation for prom and wondering if this would be a good choice with pictures and longevity of it. I'm wondering if the foundation goes on with full coverage, doesn't look cakey or give off a white cast for pics, and if it'll last a while through dancing and what not. Thank you for your time!
