Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation provides the same full coverage as its concealing predecessor - it smooths over pores & imperfections with rich, airbrushed full coverage that dries to a flawless matte finish using a unique, concealer-inspired wand. The formula absorbs oil & shine while leaving skin creaseless, hydrated, free of flakiness or cakiness & helping to improve skin health with every application.

Tarteist Tip: Swatch the foundation on your jawline, blend it in, & let it dry down before deciding on your ideal shade.

Skinvigorating Ingredients:
  • Vitamin E: A natural preservative that also works as an emollient & antioxidant
  • Mineral Pigments: Soothe & soften skin

Dermatologist tested. Hypoallergenic. Waterproof. Longwear. Vegan. Oil-free. Talc-free. Alcohol-free.

Find your perfect Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Foundation & Concealer.
Use the product's applicator to dab foundation directly onto skin. Starting at the center of the face, apply three swipes of foundation on each cheek. Using what is left on the wand, add two swipes on the forehead, one down the nose, and two on the chin. For best results, blend out in circular motions until the foundation is fully blended. For fuller coverage, apply additional swipes and blend until you've reached your desired level of coverage.

I love it

By Brandy

from Tn

Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

I've been using my shape tape as foundation for a long time. I went through those concealers like crazy. I was so happy when they released a full size foundation version. It is a quality product. If its discontinued because so many people are hating on it for the small shade selection it would be a pitty. I'll just have to go back to buying the concealers and using them as foundation.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      I have never disliked a foundation as much as this one. I was so excited when I first heard that this was coming out. I thought the whole point of this foundation was to be like the Shape Tape Concealer, but it was definitely far from it. This foundation literally melts off of my face, no matter how much setting powder I use. I have very pale skin,and the shade range was horrendous. It was so hard to find a good match with my complexion. After a few uses, it clogged my pores and caused a huge breakout. I will NOT be purchasing this again.

      Not for me

      By Bianca

      from Chicago

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      I have oily skin and this foundation is so patchy, CAKEY, hard to blend, and separates really badly where I have oil production (nose, chin, forehead) no matter what primer & setting spray I use. There are so many better foundations on the market (estee lauder double wear for example) that I'd just skip this altogether and buy something else.

      Best foundation I've used

      By Ashley

      from Livonia, MI

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      Its hard to believe some of these comments. I love this foundation, I've never noticed that it oxidized to an orange color, and have never had a problem with it drying out or cracking. It makes me wonder what everyone else is doing prep wise before applying this. I usually use my clarisonic brush to wash my face and moisturize immediately afterwards and wait for my skin to absorb it. Then I apply my primer and let that sit for a minute. I then apply my foundation in sections and blend it out with a beauty blender. I move on to contour with ABH contour stick and Tarte Shape Tape to conceal under my eyes. immediately after wards I set my make up with setting powder and spray. This method and foundation lasts and I've had no issue with it smearing off.

      Not the best

      By Shaelynn

      from Wyoming

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      This foundation is very hard to work with. After applying foundation I attempted to put concealer over and the foundation completely pealed off so I tried using it again but without concealer and after applying more than one layer it pealed completely off again. Although it is a very good matte foundation it's very hard to work with and dries fast. As for the full coverage part it's good but shows every pore on your face and wrinkle.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      I bought this foundation for prom because of my combination skin. i looks great on my dryer areas but my oily areas are a whole different store! It oxides into a horrible orange tone that's splotchy as all get out!

      By jen chanel

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      I like this foundation. It matches really well and it is full coverage and blends well. The downside to this foundation is there aren't many shades for women of color and it dries fairly quick. When will brands learn that they need an extensive shade range so everyone can enjoy makeup

      Clogged my pores

      By Tee

      from South Pasadena

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      I have combination skin/oily skin and this foundation gave me beautiful coverage and it stayed on for a good amount of time. I have it in light natural. The color matches my skin tone perfectly. However, it clogged my pores really bad. I broke out here and there on my forehead, cheeks, and have bumps along my jawline. I wanted it to work so bad because I really love how it looked on me. But I had to stop using it. Such a waste.

      Cakey and Awful

      By KBC

      from NJ

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      Cakey, does not blend, creases, oxides...pretty much does everything you don't want a foundation to do. I'm really confused as to how it has 3 stars right now because it's the worst foundation I've ever used.

      Beware! It has potential.

      By Riss

      from Detroit

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation:

      So I have super oily skin. My go to foundation is Estée Lauder Double Wear and I prime with Too Faced Hangover primer. I am a foundation junkie, and I'm always in the market for new foundation. The first day I tried this foundation I used Too Faced peach perfect matte primer. About 3 hours into my shift I went to the bathroom and was horrified at my reflection. I looked like I had purposely done my makeup to look like a 70 year old woman (I'm 28) because it had cracked and separated. The next day I used smashbox photo finish primer and it stayed perfectly matte, not as oily as I normally get, and little to no separation. Now I switch back and forth between this, MUFE, and Estée Lauder. If I'm trying to stay shine proof I'll use this, but it's still not the perfect foundation. If you've got oily skin I'd say give it a try, but be prepared to do some touch ups throughout the day.

          We would recommend the shade Fair Neutral in our Shape Tape Matte Foundation and the shade Porcelain in the Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation however it's always best to pop into your local Ulta Beauty to get professionally shade matched!

          And regarding the two formulas: The Matte Formula provides a super smooth, full matte coverage while the Hydrating formula offers a gorgeous, dewy finish! They are both wonderful however it depends on what type of finish you prefer!
