Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
I received this Tarte Clay Stick Foundation as part of a Tarte kit that I purchased.  I usually use a foundation in either light or medium in a neutral to cool tone.  This shade is perfect for me most of the year.  The formula is so creamy and just glides on.  No tugging!  It blends easily and did not settle into any of my many fine lines.  The color lasted all day.  I did require a touch up with powder in the afternoon.  I found that thin layers work best.  I put a thin layer all over my face and add a second layer where I need a little more coverage.  I was able to skip the concealer.  I loved this so much I purchased it again.

I don’t like this foundation. Makes my skin look oily, even though its suppose to be matte. It’s suppose to be full coverage, but I give it light to a medium coverage. I would not buy this product again and so I wouldn’t recommend.

When I asked a Sephora associate what foundation would work best for my skin type she put the Tarte Clay Stick foundation on me. I have been using it for a year now and really love the creamy application and lasting color it gives me.

This foundation is definitely full coverage! I found the stick foundation to be super easy to apply and convenient. It lasted me the whole night. I wouldn’t say it feels “light-weight” on the skin but not too heavy either. I would buy it again!

One of my favorite stick foundations. Great shade range and good for acne prone skin. Is creamy but applies beautifully. However this tends to melt in the heat so be warned. Great to bring on the go and works well for touch ups. Will repurchase.

When I first got it, it went on really heavy and cakey. Now after applying it better with a brush, it glides on smooth and gives me the exact coverage I need

This is my all time favorite foundation and I can’t say enough good about this product!!! I use a dense morphe brush to blend it in. It turns to a powder consistency and makes it feel as though you have nothing on. Very great coverage as well

I love this stick foundation! It glides on and sinks into the skin for a beautiful finish. I have oily skin, and it does not help control my oil but does turn into a beautiful dewy finish. Great coverage and quick/effortless application!

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:)
