Traded my tarte for this product. I was happier with the first wear than I was with tarte. I have really oily skin, so I only used a light layer- however by mid day was shining like no ones business and also looked about 2 to 3 shades darker (what’s that about).
I will say this product gave me a smooth finish which lasted all day and I didn’t have to use a lot of product to get that look.
I’ve been dying to try this product after hearing so many good things about this.
But let me get this out- the shade range is trash. The color I got is a little too late - the next shade darker is actually like four shades darker- which doesn’t work for me either- I managed to make the lighter shade work but using the chestnuts setting powder from JCat.
The coverage is great and I can really tell the difference on quality between this and less expensive products. I’m hopping they extend then range of colors because it found a perfect- or near perfect match it would become a staple for me
On the plus side- I feel really clean using this product. It’s environmentally and animal friendly which has become important to me.
It’s cleans my skin well and doesn’t leave me feeling dried it which I’ve found a lot of natural products do.
On the negative side- I don’t care for the scent. I’m very sensitive to scents and this one was the least offensive out of the brand. It smells a little sweaty- like someone has been wearing perfume, sweat a lot and rung out there clothes into he bottle. However, that’s only how it smells right out of the bottle- maybe it’s the high concentration of it. On my skin it evens out and doesn’t smell as strong. I’ll finish out the bottle but I don’t think I’d buy it again.
