        It's great I use it almost everyday, it's very easy to use. I love how it doesn't dry out my face and how it's natural looking. Just kind of pricey for me, but I think it's worth it.

        Color is a perfect match, blends great with fingers or sponge, doesnt transfer, a little goes a long way, looks like your skin only better. I have fine lines developing and this doesnt make my skin look older. Will definately buy this again and again!

        Was not happy with this product at all. I do not have sensitive skin, I can typically use any makeup for normal skin. But this made me breakout, made my skin super dry and looks horrible in pictures.

        I bought this product about a week ago. I've used it everyday since with the smashbox photo finish primer and the real techniques expert brush. The foundation just works okay on me. It applys nice and smooth gives good coverage but my one problem is it makes my dry spots more visible and cakey/flaky. I also find that the foundation tends to seperate throughout the day. I do have extremely dry skin but I'm not sure how to stop this. this product might be a little harder to use for people with dry skin like myself.

                A little goes a long way, experiment with it, you will figure out how much product to use, and what works best for you to apply. I would dot all over sparingly, A Must Have, the Tarte brush....lightly press product, then buff. Beautiful! Last ALL day, found my forever foundation! And I have spent yrs searching. And that it is healthy for your skin. What goes on your skin, goes into your body. Read clay properties. And love the fact so many shades to help you find your perfect blend! Thank you.
                The only thing I wish, that ULTA would let customers use their 20% coupons for high end products, so I do compare shopping with other companies....I'm sure everyone feels the same way....people would spend a lot more! when you feel you are getting a deal! you can't help but to buy it all!!!

                  I wish I had tried this foundation sooner! I've spent so much money on different foundations and never been this happy with one! It has great coverage without looking caked on, and it last all day at work! I use the spot concealer by tarte in re matching color to the foundation I use and it perfectly covers my acne scars (which are dark purple/pink). Definitely give this a try if you have acne prone skin.
