Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
Very thick foundation. Does not glide easily onto the skin and because it is so thick, it does not blend easily and become one with the skin. Felt more like it sat on top of my skin. Also immediately after applied to the skin, the foundation seemed to oxidize and darken on me. I also had issues with the foundation bunching on certain areas of my face like my forehead and around my nose. Overall, my experience with this foundation was terrible.

I absolutely love this foundation. It looks so beautiful with or without a primer and doesn't crease with wear. There are so many colors to choose from which makes it great for nearly everyone. I use it everyday and it lasts me so long. For the price and the quality, it is absolutely worth it. It also performs extremely well with other makeup even if it is not tarte brand.

I purchased this as part of Tarte’s 6-for-$68 sale. This is a good product but ended up not being right for me. I have dry skin and this is designed for those with more oily skin, I think. I experienced some tugging as I tried to blend it out and patchy coverage. However I think that’s due to my particular skin needs and not a flaw in this foundation.

Review for: Fair Beige more...
This foundation has become my new holy grail! I've been a powder foundation user ever since I started wearing makeup by default; every time I've tried a stick or liquid formula for heavier coverage they've all accentuated my pores and made my skin look flaky. This foundation is the first non-powder I've ever used that looks amazing on my oily-combination skin and provides great coverage without looking cakey or unnatural. This is a pretty small sized stick compared to other brands but a little of this formula goes a long way. I find I get the best application and coverage applying the stick directly to my skin and blending out with my Real Techniques sponge. This isn't quite full coverage but it's very versatile and buildable for sheer to medium coverage depending on your needs.

Review for: Medium Sand more...
I love the way it makes my skin look! I applied it to a brush then onto my face. you don't want to apply too much product (straight stick to face) or it'll look too heavy. I used a matte primer to help with the oil control. I applied my translucent powder with a powder puff to really set it. Foundation oxides a bit. In my top 5 favorite foundations! If you love light weight glowy skin this is for you!

Review for: Medium Neutral more...
I have been using the regular Amazonian Clay foundation until the stick first came out. I gave it a try and I actually like it better! This foundation stick had full coverage and I LOVED IT ! The Amazonian Clay foundation and the foundation stick has the same great formula but I find the stick much easier to apply. The stick also lasts me longer because since I am applying it on.. I am not wasting any product!

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
I absolutely love this foundation! When I first apply it, it looks like foundation but after it warms to my skin it make my skin look so vibrant! It lasts on me through a full 12 hr shift at the hospital! I definitely recommend setting this down with a powder as it does transfer some but the color payoff lasts all day! I apply this with tarte’s foundation brush that’s recommended with this product and it blends so well into the skin, I have not tried a beauty blender yet! Blush and bronzer lay smoothly on top and my shape tape blends flawlessly with this foundation! It is also the perfect size for traveling as well! I definitely recommend this product if you have dry, normal to combo skin!

Review for: Tan Sand more...
I love this foundation, it makes your skin looks so flawless and it covers most imperfections. The only thing is that it has a do we finish and if feels very heavy at times. Which is why I like to use a beauty blender so that way it looks less heavy and feel less heavy. But I use this foundation every single time I go out to a big event

I recently switched to this foundation and I’m loving it! I have combo skin and a T zone that becomes super oily throughout the day... I couldn’t find any foundations that worked for me until this one! By the end of the day my foundation still looks great! A little oily but nothing like before. Definitely recommend for oily skin!

Best foundation i have ever used in my life. I have super dry skin but this foundation stick covers it and keeps it from looking cakey. I use this every day it’s so easy to blend out and look so beautiful and natural. It also doesn’t seem to break me out which is huge for me because I sort of have a hard time finding a foundation that won’t break me out. Love love love!

What type of coverage is this. I really want to try a stick foundation but I don't love full coverage. I prefer a medium or sometimes a light:)
