Review for: Translucent, Translucent Tan-Deep more...
Being a foundation hoarder, I’ve tried my fair share of foundations and my expectations are set high. I don’t have the most amazing skin in the world so not all foundations look good on me. tarte™ shape tape setting powder When applying this foundation I was a little nervous as I had already heard mixed reviews. However, after using the doe foot applicator to place the foundation on my skin I knew I was in for a treat. It felt cool and refreshing as soon as I put it on my skin and started blending. This foundation did not look matte at all. It looked incredibly glowy and dewy on my skin while also covering my spots and dots that I’m not too big a fan of . Even though I built the coverage, it didn’t look cakey and just looked like my skin but better. The actual consistency of the foundation is still quite thick. It isn’t watery that will run down your face. It has a similar feel to it as the Shape Tape concealer has. In case you hadn’t picked it up yet, I’m in a fully committed relationship with this foundation now. I would recommend 100% this product to anyone with dry to normal skin as it sat on mine perfectly. The only drawback I could point out is that due to my love of full coverage foundation, I feel like I could go through this foundation fairly quickly.

I am a huge fan of tarte shape tape. I am an “ok” fan of the sharp tape setting powder. I mean it doesn’t provide anything special. It performs but so does a lot of my other powders. I have so many others that I would reach for first. Even Maybelline fit me setting powder does a better job I think and it’s 1/3 of the cost. This powder does seem to get a little cakey on dry skin patches, but overall I think it is slated to accommodate all skin types. I think it is good but I don’t even know why I bought it. I have so many setting powders that I’m in love with. I think I was just so head over heels with the concealer I wanted to try the powder. I won’t be repurchasing not because it didn’t work. It does work it’s just that my other powders work also for 1/3 of the cost. The best part of this I do have to say is the packaging. So little waste with this one. For packaging I give it five stars. It has a netted sifter that dispenses the perfect amount of Amazonian clay powdered formula. Last all day, prevents flashback, makes makeup matte finish. Not many shades. Use brush instead of sponge.

This caught my interest when reading that it has Amazonian Clay..... which is a freaking amazing ingredient! Everything a have with Amazonian Clay is always a winner for my skin type. I tried it for the first time yesterday and I was speechless at the look it gave me. For reference I have combination skin: Oily T-Zone, and dry everywhere else. So no matter what setting powder I use I always end up blotting it quite a few times throughout the day or night. Well this one is soooooo different. I put this on and it gave me such an amazing look. I looks so natural, with a healthy glow, not blotting, simply amazing! Even lasted thru me sweating and still looked amazing. I got so many compliments. I hope Tarte never stops making this because I am completely sold. It didn't irritate my sensitive skin, VERY EASY APPLICATION! I really like the puff it comes with, I don't get why some people are complaining about it? Also this isn't messy, you won't have product everywhere. It applies smooth, and is very lightweight! If you are on the fence about this just buy it. I use this all over my face once I'm done putting on my primer and foundation. I also lightly sprayed a dewy setting spray on top of my powder when I finished applying it. Maybe that also helps contribute to the natural look, but again this is a must-have!

I purchased this because I use Shape Tape Concealer daily and through the summer I am a sweat pit. I typically hate setting powders, but this changed my mind! I don't crease or wrinkle with it, it sets incredibly well, I still look fresh and glowy, it is smooth to the touch, and I do not feel dry or itchy. I love the small puff and the mesh as a way to keep it from going everywhere. Buy this!

Tarts Tape Setting Powder
Tarts has just released their brand new setting powder.  It comes in two different shades.  Translucent and Translucent/tan.  Details $34.00.
Open up mirror converts, pretty little powder puff and powder down below.  Shape tape powder is vegan, it's supposed blend and set make up so it lasts all day. Defused light to make skin look radiant while preventing flash back.  It modified and controls oil.  It also has a claim that it has skin bouncing formula t h st adjusts to your skins need.  Add moisture to your dry spots and modifying oil.

First apply concealer.  Apply powder.  Dust with make up brush to set make up.
I liked it better because it makes my skin look drier.

I really love the new Tarts Tape Setting Powder. I will recommend this new product to all my friends and family!

Review for: Translucent more...
Disappointed. I spent an hour at Ulta looking at just powder. Playing with about 15 different ones and finally decided to give this one a try. It was an extreme let down. Let me explain. First it comes with a very small amount of product for the price point. You may get 2 weeks using every day. Next, the packaging is awful. It’s a net holding package. So you open it and the only way to release powder is to press on the net. It releases a VERY SMALL amount with a TON of work. You can not bake with it. You can barely set with it. The powder itself is nice. But it takes way too long to get it out, and there is hardly any product. I’m sorry but I will always be honest. This was a total miss Tarte.

Hello! This is Laura, coming to you live from a quaint little ranch job, just outside the border of the new and exciting city of Detroit! Speaking of going from downright scary, to smooth and shiny...Ive tried Tarte! It made my skin look youthful and silky. It hid all my imperfections, like the roadworkers hide our potholes! It was so simple to use and only adds a minute or 2 to my makeup regime. So, for us ladies that have hit the fabulous ages of "the monumental menopause level", this is a nice little friend. It conceals just about every flaw but the sweat from the hotflashes and that little moustache stubble! Can't beat that! So give it a try and put some shimmer in your life!

I love tarte shape tape setting powder. I have searched and tried so many different setting powders and this one is my favorite. It's very easy to use and it doesn't go all over the place like most setting powders do. It makes very well into your skin so your makeup continues to look better throughout the day. It does not get into creases or cause any discolorations or weird spots. It is completely translucent so it really just sets your foundation and blush flawlessly

The flash back of this product is real! Like the ghost of Christmas past real! It makes me nose look amazing and smooth and poreless but goodness forbid someone takes flash photography of me. I would NOT recommend this product unless you know for a fact ain’t no one no how gonna take a flash photograph of you. Price is about average compared to other high end brands. And this product is super finely milled and very smooth. But this is just not for me.
