PRODUCT FIRST IMPRESSIONS : The picture I took is NOT FULL SIZE! It's the PREMIUM SAMPLE size, I've received this size from monthly subscription bag/box. Went back to ipsy website/app for more and since this size lasted so long, I saw no reason to buy full size, it was less than $20. Idk if I'd buy full size unless you can't find smaller size. It really last so long, I think it would go past length of time you should keep a makeup product!
PRODUCT REVIEW: they have me as a permanent customer due to this product alone! I LOVE the marcacuja oil, it's really different from other oils...and I was definitely skeptical! All season use, especially during winter. Perfect oil to prep skin, using it about 4 times a week, each use requires approx. 4-5 drops to cover entire face, max amount. If you get super dry like me during winter, an extra drop can be used over a few flaky, irritated areas of skin. Not heavy, soaks into skin in about 3-5 minutes. Let it dry/soak in completely before using any type of bb or cc cream or any other face prep cream. If you don't, the cream won't apply well, it will start to get sticky/gum up/ feel weird, just let oil absorb completely! If wearing makeup, this has become my must have, it primes skin so well, I know if it's the first product on skin, it's gonna be a smooth application of rest of my products! Mostly only use in a.m., idk that it offers much in the realm if anti aging, or any benefits you may get from ur night time lotions/creams/masks.
It is super easy to apply, push down the top center gold circle, twist off and there's a glass dropper attached to inside of lid (hence pressing gold button on lid to pull product from jar into dropper) . FYI it is glass, I've never had mine break, but I'm assuming it will break if you drop it. Anyways, I love the glass dropper, you avoid touching oil in jar directly & transferring bacteria to oil as much as if you were only using finger or brush. I place dropper above skin to avoid any transfer from skin on neck & face and to see how many drops I've used. I rub it in with silicone applicator or if my fingers are super clean, I'll rub in circular motion until it's evenly distributed. Make sure it's tightly closed if you put in makeup bag. I've never had the dropper break, never had bottle break either and I carry this in a makeup bag with rest of makeup and have one I keep in a smaller bag with basic face products.
Its #tarte so it isn't cheap full size is around 35-40?But, that's why I put such a detailed review...it has been amazing life saver and made me a firm believer in oils for ANY type of skin. My skin is like, bipolar, sometimes super dry and even flakes off, sometimes it's super oily & t zone looks like I went mad with a luminizer highlight, lol😂. In winter, it can get dry enough to cause irritation & break outs...All can lead to super uneven makeup distribution. This marcacuja oil has been amazing to prime face and deeply hydrate skin. Even when it's oily, I use this oil. It seems to even out skin oils or adds something to balance face oils, it's never led to excessive oil or break outs.
EXTRA THOUGHTS & BRAND OPINION: Photograph also has some favorite #tarte products from the Amazonian clay line, I think that's what all these are from (the line with pink labels!!) Tarte has various themed lines & color coordinate product packaging for that line, mainly the newer products that are featured for each line. Brilliant if you ask me! If u can't remember name, you at least know color of packaging/labels to look for. The details matter like the glass dropper, and def separate high end makeup from drug store/non prestige makeup.

I received a very generous sample of this oil from Sephora (Thank You!). I was very skeptical about it. I have dry skin and it's very senstiive. Most "natural" products make it break out. I break out from some of the most popular makeups they make. When I put this on the first time, I didn't tell my husband. A few nights later, I mentioned it and he said, "Is that why you look so good?" I politely told him I always look good and this oil just enhanced my natural beauty! He didn't buy that but he did say he noticed that my skin was more --- here he really was at a loss or words - but he came up with "luminous", all on his own. I'm sixty-three and I told him that was good choice of words! He never notices anything new I use; like a new lipstick or blush. He just likes the finish this oil gives to my skin. And he, who never can smell anything, loves the smell of the oil. My current nightly regimen is to wash my face, apply about 3-4 drops of this oil and let it soak in, and then continue my regular moisturizing routine. During the day, I do the same although I am searching for a new foundation. But I truly believe I look much better, even with the old foundation, with this oil. I wondered what he'd say when I told him the price of a full -sized bottle and he said ---are you ready?---- "Well, you don't use that much so it will last a long time and it makes your skin look really good!" I'm going to buy buckets of it and recommend that you do the same!

I Love Love Loveee this oil. I have really dry skin and my eye lids dry out and start flaking. And I couldnt find any moisturizers to stop it from doing that especially because I have extremely sensitive skin so its hard to find one that won't swoll up my face. The only moisturizer I found that doesn't do that is Vanicream Lite lotion . But that alone didn't stop the flaking on my eyelids all the way. Once I started using this oil and the lotion I saw the difference right away. I put this on every time I get out of the shower. If you exfoliate your face in the shower only put on a little little bit cause a couple drops go a long way and you don't want to clog up your pores.I only put it on my eyelids when I exfoliate my face and then the lotion on the rest of my face. & Be careful so you don't get it in your eyes it doesn't burn but you'll see an oil film for awhile if you do. Overall I would recommend the product. I most definitely have seen a difference in my face and neck once I started using it.

Just recently purchased this from Ulta. My face is so dry from this winter weather, my lips are so chapped, and around my mouth, and nose are peeling and flaking. I can't exfoliate, or moisturize enough, so I finally picked up this, in hopes for it to heal my skin. I also picked up another moisturizer for dry skin as well. These two products are doing the job! This oil has no scent, and only two ingredients! So it has no bad stuff! It's soaks in well, I wasn't sure what to expect with a oil, thinking it may be like baby oil and just sit on the skin, but it actually soaks in well, sits under makeup nicely. It doesn't make your foundation separate like your own natural oils would do either. The application is interesting, with the dropper having a button on top of the lid. It can be spilt easily because it has a large opening so be careful! I'm definitely glad I got this and will probably be repurchasing. I do two drops and it covers my whole face. I could probably go with just one but right now I need the moisture!! I'm interested to see how it works with mixing in my foundation to make it glowy and other things. I got two of the small bottles for $8 each on sale. So I'm sure it's going to last Forever!

Review for: Pure more...
I have normal skin and was using a full coverage foundation and it just felt dry and cake like on my face. I had hear that adding a couple drops of beauty oil could help.

So I was on to search for a good beauty oil to mix with my foundation. After doing some searching I had decided I was going to try out Tarte Maracuja oil. 

I was sold after using the first time. My face felt moisturized instead of dry and and by mixing it with my foundation it gave me a beautiful glow.

This oil can be used for quite a few things. It can be used to ad moisture to your face before bed. If you have dry elbows or any dry skin you can put a little on and it will help it. You can even use it on dry ends of your hair.

This is truly a miracle product!  tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

I received this in my ipsy bag a while back and was too afraid to try it, scared it would break me out. After doing some research, I began using it here and there but never did give it a permanent place in my skincare routine. However recently I started using Differin gel on my face again after about 16 years (I had a prescription for it when I was a teenager for mild acne) and while going through the rough super dry peely/flaky stage, I finally gave my Tarte Maracuja Oil a whirl and oh my god did it change my life. About 30 minutes after I apply the Differin to my face, I squeeze out 3 drops into my hand and smooth it all over but really concentrating on my chin, which is where the most drying and peeling happens. My skin soaks it right up and I wake up with soft skin. After I wash my face in the morning, I smooth on another 3 drops and allow it to soak in before putting on my makeup. By the end of the work day, I have a little dryness going on but nothing like before (also probably because my skin is adjusting to the Differin) but my makeup looks great regardless. I will definitely be buying a full sized bottle when my little bottle is gone but it probably won’t be for a while because this stuff lasts and lasts!

First off let me start by saying that I am currently taking a course of accutane to get rid of my mild-moderate persistent cystic acne. I have been on the course for about 3 1/2 months and have not had pimples for about 2 months now. My face is left with scarring on my cheeks and chin area, it's normal/dry (used to be SO oily but accutane has made any oil on my face non-existent), redness prone, and uneven. I was hesitant to use this at first because the thought of me putting an oil on my face scared me. Since starting my maracuja oil nighttime routine 5 weeks ago I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. It's even, glowy, and smooth! I can't wait to see what my skin will look like once I've completed my course of accutane and get some natural moisture back! Life time user!

This is a great product from tarte! I seen people raving about it everywhere so when I received in my ipsy bag a while back I was super excited!! This is an oil however it does absorb really quickly and you wont feel any oil residue left on your skin. I apply this before my foundation, and everytime I use this my foundation goes on so smooth and always looks flawless!!  This is also great for sensitive skin [like mine] , it doesn't break you out.. You can use this for several different uses. On your face , on your skin you want to have deeply nourished to avoid aging signs, you can even apply this in your hair if it needs a little extra hydration. I recommend purchasing the small bottle , because this stuff really seriously last you a long time!

1 full size bottle of this will last you a very long time! I use this roughly 3x a week and it's about half full, and I've had it about 10 months. I have oily skin so I did some research before purchasing because I was worried it would clog my pores. It has a very low comodone level meaning the molecules aren't small enough to clog you up. Which is true because I haven't noticed any! It smells woodsy yet clean and spreads across your skin very easily. It takes a lil bit to soak in, but even still it doesn't make me feel greasy at all. I use a perscribed retin-a cream that dries me out significantly so I always follow up with this oil! I've even put a drop or two into dried out eyebrow pomade and cream contour to bring it back to life

Review for: Pure more...
I freaking love this thing. When I first saw this on the Ulta website, I thought $48 is way too expensive for a face oil. However, upon further research, I realized that it is so hard to find a face oil that doesn't have a bunch of other additives and is mostly only pure oil. 
I was hesitant at first when I tried it because my skin is acne prone and a lot of products break me out. This has been a saving grace for me. I am in between moisturizers right now, meaning I haven't been able to find one that doesn't break me out. I use this instead of moisturizer most nights and have had no issues with dry skin.
I only bought a sample size because it was on sale, but I will likely buy the full size when Ulta sends me one of those wonderful 20% off coupons!

I just purchases this and I'm going to try it. Anything I should know about it? Do I just put a couple drops and rub it into my face? Should I finish with a moisturizer? Any tips please share!!

I am thinking about purchasing the travel size to try and I was wondering how long this size would last (only using 2-3 drops per day)? Also, what are the pros and cons of this? Thanks!
