My Thoughts

If you're new to Tarte, you may not have heard about the controversy when this foundation first launched. Customers were upset there was a limited shade range unlike the popular Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Tarte rereleased this foundation in 50 shades. I like that this is a vegan matte foundation; however, you may want to use a good moisturizer when priming your face if you have dry skin. I've worn this foundation 3 times so far for about 9 to 10 hours, and I must say the claims are true. This foundation does have impressive staying power. I wanted to test the claims even further with the hot and humid weather here. My foundation didn't budge. I'm so glad this is a sweat proof and waterproof foundation. I noticed a floral type scent, but thankfully the scent does fade.The foundation claims its lightweight, but I found it more on the thicker side. A little foundation goes a long way. Since this is a full coverage foundation, I'll will be wearing this foundation during the Winter.

My Thoughts

Two words...Holy Grail! I'm highly impressed by the shape Tape Concealer. In a nutshell yes this Concealer is worth the hype and the money! I was unsure of which shade I wanted to try, so I took my mom along with me. She actually matched me better than I did. Funny story my mom didn't realize this was a Concealer at first so she was applying it all over my face Haha! Then she was said "if this Concealer is this amazing and flawless I can only hope the foundation is just as great. The concealer was in the wrong area. My mom was saying why are they making foundations so small now lol. 

I wore this Concealer during one of my busy MUA Clients days so that was about 8 hours. I didn't notice any creasing and the wear time was good as well.

Have you tried these Tarte products?

look great products

Doctor Anne said...

I tend to prefer fuller coverage in winter too. I have tried neither of them, I am so happy with the NARS Concealer I really don’t need another one.

Lisa said...

Ive never heard of this until a couple weeks ago my daughter was asking for some. I had no clue it was make up. I thought “face tape” was some kind of wrinkle prevention. So Duh me.
Thanks for the post

I love Tarte products but the foundation did not work for me as well as the concealer which I cannot be without. Great selection to share.

Sakuranko said...

Oh very good products

I had to cancel Tarte Cosmetics after they thought it was cool to post a racist meme a few years ago. I will never use any of their products again.

Marie said...

I want to try the concealer. I heard many youtubers say it's a good product!

Pilar said...

I just started using Tarte products last year.

Pilar said...

Thanks Tanza!

Pilar said...

The humidity here is horrible so I'm wearing this foundation in the Winter! I like wearing full coverage foundations when the weather is colder. I want to add Nars on my list of concealers to try.

Pilar said...

Lol you're welcome Lisa!

Pilar said...

I like the coverage and the shade range, but I'll wear the foundation when it's cooler. I love the concealer!

Pilar said...

The foundation feels a little thick to me, so it's not something I would want to wear during the Summer. The concealer is one of the best I've used this year!

Pilar said...

Thanks Sakuranko!

I just started using their products last year, but I never heard about this until now. I actually just looked it up what was said. Oh wow that was offensive, and the statement cause a lot of fans to be offended and upset. I saw Tarte issued an apology, but sadly the damage was already done. People need to be more mindful of the things they say and do.

Pilar said...

The concealer is good.
