Buttery,creamy,good coverage- everything you want in a foundation correct? This is my new holy grail foundation. I've recently been having some skin issues( used to be oily and now I'm super dry) and this gives such a pretty natural glow to my skin. You could also use it to highlight and contour as well. It lasts a good amount of the day. I do lightly set it with powder. Price wise.. it's not bad but i don't wear foundation everyday. I do think it will last me a long time though. #nofilters

Review for: Fair Neutral more...
I am IN LOVEEEEE with this foundation!!! This is literally the best foundation that I have ever tried. Most recently I was using the dior forever foundation which wasn't bad but since I moved to a drier climate I found that it was clinging to certain dry spots and I just felt like I got really greasy by the end of the day like it didn't last well for me in the heat. So I decided to try the tarte clay stick foundation because I have heard so many good reviews about it and I felt comfortable wearing it in the heat since it is made with so many good products that it wouldn't break me out. First of all, this formula is soooooo unbelievably creamy and blends like a dream!!! You don't need too much foundation so start out with small swipes and then add more after you buff it out if you want to add more coverage. I love how this foundation truly just looks like your skin. It isn't cakey or creasy and it doesn't leave me greasy. Everyone should try this foundation because it is a holy grail! I love you tarte!!!!

It's a great foundation for light to medium coverage you definitely have to apply a lot of the product to get great coverage!! It applies smoothly and stays put ounces it's set!! I think the price is steep for the amount of product you get!! I will keep testing it for further review!!

Honestly I tried this on my hand and it was sooooo creamy and bendable however trying it on my face after it made my skin so dry and horrible and I didn't enjoy it very much. I love tarte products but not everything is fit to be amazing for every skin. It is an amazing product just didn't work out for me and I will continue trying more in the future. I do recommend it however

Review for: Fair Beige more...
I am rewritting my previous review. I started a new skin care routine and it completely changed how this foundation worked on my skin. I now am obsessed with this stuff. I have been searching high and low for the perfect foundation for me. I've found it! It goes on smooth, I can build it up to full coverage, and it blends out so well on my skin. I also love the color selection. I'm a fair neutral skin tone, not too pink or yellow so it makes it hard to find a good foundation. 10/10!

I received a deluxe sample of Tarte Stick Foundation from Sephora. So far I'm loving the coverage, makes my skin look smooth and natural. I've used it a couple of times, and got complemented by close friends! I'm definitely purchasing a full size. tarte Clay Stick Foundation

I am a fan of foundation sticks. Having five kids it makes doing my makeup a lot quicker. I was so excited when I heard Tarte was coming out with a foundation stick but I wasn't too impressed with it. The coverage is ok I definitely need more than one application. I'd honestly rather spend a few more dollars and get the hourglass vanish stick or the makeup forever foundation stick.

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?
