I've been looking for a stick foundation to add to my collection and it was like God answered my prayers when I went into Ulta as this one was on sale and actually in my shade! I remember when the product first launched and the reviews were not great. I also didn't think the price was worth it. This is honestly probably the BEST foundation that I have ever used. I have a $5,000 makeup collection with Fenty Beauty, Too Faced, IT! Cosmetics, and many other top foundation making brands in it, and NOTHING compares to this product! It is so creamy, the coverage is absolutely perfect for me (not too full, but not too light), and the blending. Oh my gosh. I have never had to put so little effort into blending a foundation before. Now that I've found my holy grail though, I'm sure this will be discontinued since it is on sale. I hope if it disappears, I'm able to find another one like it.

This was my first time trying out a foundation stick and I loved it. I’m a fan of tarte products in general. It didn’t dry out my skin but it still gave me a beautiful matte finish.

The color match on this product was great, and it was on sale so I was excited to try it. Sadly it broke apart after a short time and I had to return it. This may work better for oily skin yours, but it wasn't the right choice for my combo skin.

I hate this foundation. Literally is the worst foundation for combo skin - oily skin, leaves my face so greasy!!!!!! I hate that! Even if I’m using some laura mercier powder to try to seal my makeup, looks horrible on my face, I don’t recommend it, and it’s pricy.

Love this foundation stick!! I purchased this through QVC in a gift set. They were out of fair so I opted for light in color. I am typically Fair light neutral in tarte Foundation, so I figured light would be okay. It was a bit darker than I would have liked but I have made it work. It is easy to use and very quick to use. It came with a foundation brush which is amazing to use as application. I have not tried to apply this in any other way other than with the tarte foundation brush and it works perfect. I would definitely purchase this product again but next time I might go for a lighter shade

This is a thick foundation stick and gives full coverage. It is not as moisturizing as I would have liked and caked slightly on my dry skin after several hours. But it goes on smoothly and is easy to use.

Plus Tarte is great for natural ingredients.

I only gave this one star because it wouldn’t allow me to do no stars.
When I applied my first layer, my pores poked through and it clung to dry spots. On my second layer, it became cakey and very noticeable that I was very foundation (keep in mind I didn’t use a lot to begin with). Very disappointed with this product. Wouldn’t recommend. I will stick to my MUFE stick foundation (which is flawless!!)

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?
