This foundation is my holy grail! It goes on so smooth like butter. It covers my eczema patches and is not drying at all! I would say this foundation is like medium to full coverage. You can layer if you want to build coverage.

I absolutely love this foundation. I just hate how you don’t get a lot of product in it. I’m usually out after a couple months, and that wasn’t me doing it every day. My face turned dry, and I couldn’t find a good full coverage for dry skin that was light enough for me. Then Tarte came out with this, and I love it. It literally hydrated my face a lot, and I didn’t even have to use primer most of the time. It made my skin look flawless

Review for: Fair Beige more...
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.

i very much like this product, but my only issue is that it doesn't stick to my skin... it creases during the day, my pimples pop through, and if my face rubs against anything its gone. this is such a good formula i just wish it stayed longer:(

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
This is my current foundation is it’s awesome! Doesn’t look cakey and goes on like butter! I apply a lot because i like a fuller coverage. I would call it a medium dewy finish but you can build it up to full and set it with a powder for a matte finish. I havent had any blocked pores and my skin has looked great since I started using it! No gross scent and the price is good! I definitely recommend this!

Review for: Fair-Light Neutral more...
This product is flawless if you apply it the right way for your skin type! Since I have combination type skin I have to dab my beauty blender into some moisturizer and then blend the foundation out, i love the finish this foundation has but it’s a bit tricky at first if it is your first time using this product. Otherwise it is amazing!

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
Great coverage and pretty easy to blend. I have oily skin and it lasts a long time and doesn’t come off throughout the day. I chose the wrong shade (twice) so I need to find my real shade. But I will purchase again because it’s truly amazing.

This foundation stick is amazing. I think it is a semi matte finish and it doesn’t leave my skin dry at all. They have a nice shade of colors. It is so easy to use a stick foundation and less messy than a liquid foundation. I feel like I don’t even need to set it. Very good product.

Review for: Medium Sand, Tan Sand, Tan Deep Honey, Light Beige more...
This is a very versatile product. I have used these sticks to highlight/contour and as overall foundations and have come to enjoy the product. They are relatively long lasting, and the packaging is nice. They do tend to oxidize so I would go a shade lighter and set with powder to keep the oils at bay. My favorite application is using these sticks as highlight/contour on days you don’t want to go too heavy. They are light eight, offer medium coverage, and last well.

This has been my go-to foundation for the last few months. It’s great for travel! The stick formula is comparable to their liquid formula. The coverage is medium to full. A little product goes a long way!

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?
