I am a female who loves in an extremely COLD and SNOWY winter climate in the Upper Peninsula of MIchigan. I love hockey, fashion, music, and traveling to WARM places during our frigid winters.
Our summers are beautiful here- it's what keeps me around, so during those hot and sunny days we may get in June-August (sometimes even September, if were lucky) I enjoy boating, bonfires on the beach, watching the northern lights aka the Aurora Borealis, and ATV riding and exploring nature on my Honda Rincon with my family & friends.
I have two dogs, Aurora and Slash - they are miniature Siberian huskies (Alaskan Klee Kai's is their technical name), A 14 year old son, and of course my amazing boyfriend, who all mean the world to me.
Review for: Light-Medium Beige, Medium Beige more...
For a person who isn’t the biggest fan of full coverage foundation, I absolutely loved this clay foundation by tarte. They aren’t lying when they say it is a “12 hour” makeup! I felt it was a GREAT color, that blended really well, while not looking cakey on my maturing skin to the point of exacerbating little lines and wrinkles/blemishes. I also loved the creamy texture ! Would definitely recommend/ buy this one again!
This makes my eyes SUPER messy looking. Maybe I just have shaky hands when applying, but the fine tip just isn’t for me. I feel I either have to use the fine tip to just very THINLY line around my eyes (which I prefer a thicker overall look, but not TOO thick), and it is either TOO thin, or I have to make a thicker line, which then begins to smear, and look Cakey/overdone. The tip also dries out sometimes RIGHT as I’m about to get the PERFECT line, and I’m forced to start over to fill in where it dried up, and then I end up looking like Freddie Mercury!
I liked this for the color, but wasn’t a fan of the formula and how it went on my skin. Almost brought out certain lines or blemishes because of the thin application. I felt like every time I used this- I either caked it on, for a more fuller coverage- or - I used VERY little, and just used loose powder over it to hide the imperfections. Just not a hige of the formulation. So I probably wouldn’t buy (this particular) FX product, again. However, I DO like some of the FX primers!
Really great color, blended well with my skin tone, and definitely made my skin look nearly flawless. A little too much coverage for me, my aging/maturing skin needs a little less coverage- however, I still do use this and mix with other products to achieve the perfect “mix” when I am looking for that great blended color/ with a little more coverage !
This was a very nice foundation for me, and I would certainly consider using this again, if my wallet would allow. Goes on incredibly smooth, for a very natural finish, in which I didn’t even have to use powder over top. Great staying power too, especially if sprayed with a setting formula. The colors were so natural, and I used one for my “tanner” skin during summer months, and one for my “paler” skin, in the winter. Great product. One of the best.
I really like how this doesn’t settle into fine lines and crevices in the skin. It goes on light, yet it covers imperfections for an overall “real” not over-made up look. Perfect for women who are starting to see their skin mature, and full-coverage non-mineral powders are a thing of the past. There is a reason why. This looks beautifully natural, still hiding the uneven tones of the skin. I spray over mine with a setting spray- and bang! It’s set all day, even in a sweaty-face profession. It doesn’t cake up.
I don’t know about long-term, but this is a great eye lifter/cream short term. Picked it up on sale for 10$, and when I needed a quick lift, with immediate results- this did the trick. I wore it under my makeup, and I love how tight it made my skin feel right after application. I’m going to also start applying before bed!
Let me start out by saying, I love the brush - and how it separates my lashes, but that’s about it. This stuff definitely clumps after some time, and only one application, and flakes off in about 4-5 hours, and settles under my eyes, giving the “Frankenstein” look. I wouldn’t buy this type again.
This is amazing stuff right here that is BEYOND worth the extra $$ for my aging skin. It creates such a nice natural look as opposed to cheaper drugstore brands - especially in the summer when i work in a profession that involves my skin to sweat a lot, and cheaper foundations settle into my fine lines and highlight my little wrinkles starting . Not this stuff. Stays and looks natural and polished every time. All day. Great product , and I highly recommend it! They have a match for nearly every skin tone also!
