Most Helpful Positive Review This is now a holy grail product
For reference I'm 450 in Fenty Foundation. I think that people will enjoy this product if they understand the purpose of it and have realistic expectations. This product has really good skincare ingredients in it like hyaluronic acid, what this product really does is make your skin look radiant, creamy and soft. It gives you that extra boom boom. It is lightweight and you barely feel it on your skin. During spring and summer I love products like that. This is a product I use on weekends or days I'm off of work. If you are a person who likes full coverage or you have skin issues like deep redness or acne scars this product is not for you. Because you're not going to be happy with it, this product is sheer. You might be better off with a BB cream or foundation. Now if you have basic issues like a little redness or slight hyperpigmentation like I do, it can work for you. It looks beautiful on me and it really last all day. I don't understand people who say it's small. It's 1ounce which is standard for complexion products. People just have bogus expectations sometimes. I am very happy with this product and I think it's beautiful especially if you use a good primer first. It's still a lot easier than putting on a full face of makeup. On the days I use this, I simply do my skincare routine first then I put on primer. I put this on in circular motions with my finger or brush because you don't need a sponge, it will eat up the product and it's already sheer so that will take away from it. I dab on setting powder and maybe some lip gloss or lipstick. If I'm in the mood eyeshadow and bam I'm out the door. The biggest benefit for using this is that you feel like you're not wearing anything at all and its easy to take off.
Most Helpful Critical Review BAD REACTION!
This was really pretty when I put it on, very nicely sheer but just enough coverage that spot concealing was all you'd need. HOWEVER within about 10 minutes my skin started to feel itchy and one side was getting a bit red, so I immediately had to get it off. When I did, it was obvious where I applied it, my skin was VERY red where it sat on me longer.
I am NOT someone with sensitive skin, or any known allergies, so I have no idea why I had a reaction to this. I've used the marajuca oil by itself, and their rainforest of the sea is a fav foundation of mine, so I'm just.. puzzled.

Super lightweight melted into my skin. Non drying and did not stick to my dry patches
Best For Dry Skin
Victoria from Texas
I have extremely dry, redness prone skin. My skin LOVES this stuff. This is the only product I can use to trick people into thinking I just have glowing skin with no makeup XD. However when I do breakout I have to use some more coverage.
So if you just struggle with an uneven tone, dryness, and just the occasional breakout, this is for you.
Oily, acne prone skin, maybe try a different product
I love this product!
Shari from Michigan
Light coverage to wear alone or under foundation. Most days, I wear this product by itself for an overall healthy glow. It covers small blemishes and keeps my skin supple.
Great for acne prone skin
C.M. from Tampa, FL
Im a dance teacher and I was getting horrible breakouts from sweating under my mask all day. I tried this product because it was in my Ipsy bag and I loved it. Its thin but has great coverage! It is long lasting and doesn't clump on oily skin. My breakouts calmed down in just a few days!

Best tinted moisturizer I have ever used
Sweetmarmar from NC
This is by far the best tinted moisturizer I have used. It is long lasting and has the perfect amount of glow. It is great for an everyday look.
Would purchase again
Laf from Nashville, tn
I love the little bit of color this adds to my skin. It evens out some splotchy areas. I can wear this, and go. No makeup needed. It doesnt look cakey or fake. Its a great moisturizer. I've always been a fan of tinted bb creams and moisturizers. This one does very well. I would choose this over putting on liquid makeup or foundation any day. I feel like my skin can breathe
I would buy this product again I love it!
Kayla from New Caney Texas
This product is so easy to apply an looks amazing. Love to use it on days I don't feel like putting a whole face of makeup. It gives you good skin color and complexion I love it.
Love how it looks on my skin but hate the rash
Evie from Oregon
I got a sample of this and I love how it looks on my skin, it evens out redness and while I still need to spot conceal it wears really well on my dry skin. The only problem is that it BURNS and leaves me with a huge rash every time I wear it. Really disappointed because if it weren't for that I would purchase the full size
It's pretty good!!!
Young Indian Beauty Addict from Morris Plains, NJ
This is super nice and hydrating, perfect for my dry skin, and the shade match is good enough (shade deep sand).I just wish there was a little more coverage, but this is supposed to let your skin shine through, which is what it does. Shape tape layers over this no problem which is nice.
Great light coverage and so moisturizing
Jules from Kansas
I got two small samples of two different tints (neither being my exact shade), but because this is such a light color wash, they both looked good on. I'm currently using the lighter one on the bridge of my nose, upper cheeks, main area of forehead and lower chin. I use the darker shade to add subtle contouring. This is so light, it feels like my lightest moisturizer. I can (and do) layer sometimes for more coverage. I was surprised to see that it didn't have better overall reviews. This is my favorite foundation!
Mehhh ... no thank you
TabbyCat from Kansas
I am just not very impressed with this product - I expected a lot better from Tarte. I wanted to love it - I thought I would try it for days when I'm running behind or don't feel like a full face to at least help pull my complexion together - even out my skin tone, hide blemishes, & hydrate, but it is just too lightweight. It seemed to melt into my skin & disappear. I even tried to build it up to no avail. And I take very good care of my skin - it is sufficiently hydrated & whatnot. When I went to wash it off only 4hours later nothing came off on my washcloth (3 differ times). I'll stick with my Lancôme tinted moisturizer as it also has an SPF, unlike this one.
Cindy from Ohio
I've realized Tarte is my new obsession for face products. I received a little bottle of this and after one use I was sold. Just the right amount of coverage and doesn't make me oily or settle into my pores. I love using this just by itself!
Love Tarte, not a fan of this stuff.
The Mama in Red from Millville, MA
I bought this to try, as I always loved Tarte before switching to another brand for color matching. This line has a wide array of tones, and it goes on well. However, after a week of use, my skin feels so oily by 2pm that I feel gross. I was breaking out in tiny whiteheads every time I wore my glasses, and this was just messy. After two weeks, I returned it. I have oily skin, and this just didn't work for me.
Amandalynn from Missouri
I got this as a sample and I loved it so much that I went and bought some today, it's prefect!!!!!!!
MP from USA
Used Light Sand shade. It was perfect until it turned orange a bit after application :( I really wanted to like it then buy it!
Htxgrl from Texas
I'm so happy I got a sample of this before buying a full size. The smell is so terrible it gave me a headache. As far as coverage, for a tinted moisturizer it's pretty good & goes on easily. I have normal skin & it made me feel oily. I do not recommend this product.
Ahhh from Rockford, IL
I love this. I got a sample of it, I don't have dry skin it can be oily though. It's perfect coverage doesn't make my skin feel cakey or heavy. I've used it twice now!
AB from Kansas
This is great for everyday wear. I have combination skin and some products make my skin look dry in areas this doesn't. It's build able coverage. Sometimes I even added it to my full coverage and it looks amazing!!
SqrlB8 from Baltimore, MD
I have an awesome skin routine & seldom stray from what I put on my face. This came in my Ipsy bag, so I gave it a shot. I applied it on one side of my jaw line. It blended nicely & was super light. However, I woke up the next morning with a cluster of welts on the area of my chin where this was applied. I couldn't tell you the last time I had a breakout. It's honestly more like a contact dermatitis, than zits. Beings this was the only new thing added on my face, I can only assume that it didn't agree with my skin. Bummer.
Don't waste you money
Morgan from Ohio
Didn't last very long before it bunched up and added texture to my face, didn't even last half the day, and broke me out.
Danielle from Pittsburgh, PA
I wish I had ordered this sooner. This gives me a natural finished look for weekends and home days. Me and my sensitive dry skin love this!
Elz from BLA Mn
Really like this. Was looking for a CC cream when I went in, and this was recommended. Glad I tried it. Makes my skin smooth and appear great!!!
