Review for: Fair Beige more...
So first the good: it blends well, applies easily, and doesn’t feel drying.

Now the bad: it breaks apart quickly in my oily spots and sinks into lines. Also, I feel like “fair beige” is lighter in this product than in all of the other products I have tried from tarte.

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

This foundation is amazing. The application is so smooth but I have to use a brush rather than a beauty sponge to blend it out. It is matte but it' s not drying at all. It is comfortable to wear all day.

Review for: Medium Sand more...
I love this creamy, thick, rich formulation. It gives medium to high coverage and blends like a dream! However it does crease a lot!! So be prepared to set immediately with a powder.

I have oily skin and this was just a big no for me. It oxidized, looked patchy, wouldn't blend, and made my pres look huge even after using a pore filling primer.

Very expensive for something with not that much product in it, seems like I would run out of it within a month. It’s a bit too greasy/oily for my taste but would be good for people with dryer skin.

I would have never actually purchased this product on my own because I'm oily and I just didn't think it would work for me. I received a sample and gave it a try, to my surprise I liked it. Had a nice finish and pretty good coverage. I loved how easy and convenient it was to use! Packaging was also nice.

Review for: Tan Sand more...
This literally goes on like a stick of butter. I love how smooth the coverage is. I do tend to get oily on my t-zone during the day and I noticed this does not hold up as well as the 12-Hour Amazonian Clay Foundation. The stick formula is a bit more moisturizing, which is nice. But i have difficulty making this last a full day on my face. I do love the finish.

I WISH IT WAS BIGGER. It doesn't last very long... at all. Also, which it matched other shades of tarte foundations. I would love if they had color consistency throughout lines. Would make life so much easier.

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?
