      I've been using this Tarte foundation for while now (this is the third tube I've purchased) and I really like it. It covers well and stays on all day. It doesn't feel too heavy, unless I dispense too much.

                  Used it over concealer and it blended well after concealer set. Very silky feel after several hours. No touchup needed. Used a light application even out tone and it doesn't look heavy.

                  I wasn't sure how I was going to like this . I read a bunch of reviews.. some good some bad but I actually did like the application of the product with the bamboo airbrush brush. it went on smooth and left my skin soft and flawless. what's more is my husband noticed a difference. so I like this very well.

                  The only bad thing about this product is that it makes you breakout. Everyone I've talked to that has used the product says the same thing. Although, it's definitely the best thing I've ever came across and there is nothing els I would rather buy. Besides, it covers up the acne anyways.

                      Both products are formulated for all skin types, so which to use is your personal preference. The main difference, of course, is the texture of each - creamy liquid vs. loose powder. We recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to determine which one you prefer:

                      Ivory is more cool-toned (pink) than Fair Beige. Both are suitable for fair skin tones.
