Review for: Light Medium Neutral
i have NEVER gotten as many compliments on my makeup as i do when im wearing this - my skin looks absolutely amazing. the finish is great, dewy/glowy and feels so lightweight. it lasts the full 12 hours with a few touch ups here and there, but i expect that from most foundations. its very easy to blend out, but i would recommend blending it out with a brush. tarte’s clay foundation formula tends to stick inside of beauty sponges and makes it hard to clean.

Review for: Light Beige
Blends nicely, easy application, mess free. But... it starts braking up after two hours not lasting at all. If you are of oil skin I would steer clear oft this foundation. My face looked like a butter ball after a few hours.

Review for: Medium Sand
First off I am super impressed at how well this blends out and how creamy it is. It is so breathable and natural looking. Feels and looks wonderful on my skin. Very long lasting and not heavy on the skin.

Review for: Light Medium Neutral
Not my favorite foundation. It didn't cover my blemishes well. I have fairly light skin and received this in a set, otherwise I would have never purchased. I bought this off QVC in a set that I was interested in.

Review for: Light Medium Neutral
This is the first foundation I've found that really works for my skin! I have fair, combo skin, and it's perfect, creamy, buildable, and blendable coverage. I like to blend mine in with a brush. It can be bought at Sephora, and is reasonable in price. I will definitely buy another.

Review for: Fair Beige
I am always very skeptical of stick foundations like this, but decided to give it a try anyway. I actually really love it. It has great coverage, matches my skin tone well, blends well, lasts all day, and doesn't feel too heavy on my face. The price point is pretty average for a prestige brand foundation ($39). I would say it's worth it. I bought mine at Ulta, but I know it's also available at Sephora and on the Tarte Website.

Review for: Light Medium Neutral
I like the natural finish on my skin. It does not feel heavy at all.. I forget I am wearing it sometimes. I did have to play around with this for a while to figure it out though. I blend it on my face with a brush to get the coverage I want. But it seems like a medium coverage foundation. I then use a sponge to press it into my skin to get it to last.. then apply the setting powder and setting spray.

Review for: Medium Neutral
I really wanted this foundation to be my everyday go-to foundation but it doesn't last long as I need it to. It also breaks apart easily on my face. I find that the application is convenient being that it is a stick foundation but for me, it is difficult to blend in. For the most flawless finish I have to blend in with a brush and then pat it with a beauty sponge to get rid of streaks.

I love this foundation! Its lightweight and provides good coverage. I can go light and just cover up my acne spots or build this up for full coverage and set it with powder. I love how this feels on my skin. It can hold up even on hot, dry las vegas heat!

Review for: Fair-Light Neutral
I wanted to love it. I was excited when I finally got it but it was horrible. It applies super patchy, I tried different primers, setting sprays, sponge vs brush it just looked horrible. It doesn't last even after setting it with powder. Worst part is when trying to blend it it starts to ball up.... plain horrible. I gave it 2 stars just because it didn't break me out, and that is always a plus.

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:)

I have an extremely oily t-zone. I love full coverage to hide my dark spots and I expect a matte look. Would it meet my expectations?
