Rated 3 out of 5 by mamascookies Colour & packaging issues
Firstly, the stick arrived broken. The actual colour stick was stuck to the lid. This made application a little wobbly and it kept falling out. Tarte has some wonderful packaging but this just feels cheap and badly designed. Secondly I agree with most of the other reviews in that the colours are difficult to match. I'm a medium honey in the foundation. I went for the light because the medium in the cc looks way too dark for me (as mentioned by some other reviewers). Well the light made me look like a zombie. It's a real shame because I think if they sorted these two issues it would be a lovely product. It's velvety soft and I can see that it would give a wonderful finish in the correct shade while helping with my redness and dark circles. I really wanted this to work but not for me. It'll be going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sylviajean Not for me
I generally love Tarte products from their foundation to lipsticks I've never disliked anything in their range. I try to wear as little foundation as possible, long gone are my pan stick days I really find less is more as I get older so when I saw this I was keen to try it. Well I disliked everything about it it highlighted my lines, was drying on my combination skin and just looked patchy and awful. First time I've given Tarte a bad review but it really didn't suit my skin and was returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GlamCandi What a difference this makes
I ordered this as I wanted light coverage but apply quickly. This does that.
I am light olive skin tone, I ordered light and even that was tad dark, I could of gone with the lightest shade that would have suited to but didn't as it's summer my skin will adjust to the light shade.
This makes my skin feel smoother with it on very soft gives a light coverage overall a natural look I place face powder on top of mine to let it last longer as I have oily combination skin type and sometimes make up just rubs off my skin but not this.
I really like this product for me it works only critisum is the colours need adjusting they are not accurate.
With this you can build it up for coverage it's a primer and colour corrector in one its a good product to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tiptop Perfect primer
I have only recently started using Tarte products and to be perfectly honest I wish I had tried this range as soon as it arrived to QVC. I have so much of the range now and I haven't been disappointed with any of it.
This primer is amazing love the colours in it but when you put it on your skin it doesn't show up green and pink it blends beautiful and skin feels like silk to touch. I have combination skin and as I said this range is brilliant fantastic too for no makeup days as coverage is great and on days do wear more makeup found don't need as much foundation.
Please please don't stop this product QVC xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by jen57 Amazed by this..
I've had this for a while and haven't even tried it! When I did....Wow! Wish I'd used it immediately! What a difference in my skin, lots of foundations just seem to sit on my skin and show up my pores, not this.. When I first applied it it looked too dark, but within minutes I was really amazed to see how it had adapted to my skin, and what's more it lasted all day! Very impressed with this, I have a few Tarte foundations but this primer is in use every day now alone, without needing any foundation over it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Good for oily/combination skin
I have combination skin and my face is often shiny by the end of the day. This primer is fab for preventing shine where you don't want it. I agree it is slightly drying on skin so it is perhaps not as suitable for drier complexions. Really nice natural finish, I can wear it on its own without foundation on top. Helps with redness but won't cover all red (eg broken veins) you need a concealer for that. I chose light (I use light or medium in balance and brighten) I will probably get a medium for the summer. I have pale ish skin with freckles and blonde hair but I do tan, hope this helps with colour choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by demanding Very poor
After listening to the presenter ,and Leigh, I thought I must try this wonder product!!
WELL what a mistake as soon as I started to put it on my face it broke fell on the floor and broke in half.
So I persevered ,it looked dry, Cakey did nothing for my skin(still clay should have offered warning signs)
I must say it has put me off trying any Tarte skin products in the future Laura Gellar is my gal, does exactly what she says it will do. Sorry Leigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zena55 best face makeup product I have ever bought
I bought the primer over the summer originally with the double ended brush in medium which was in a todays special value. Wow and double wow, this was the best product in the bag and sold me on Tarte Cosmetics so much so that I went on to buy the primer in the light for winter and the matching foundations and gifts at Christmas. I look 10 years younger than my age anyway but this product even without foundation makes such a difference to my makeup, so much so that I don't need much foundation if any. I could instantly see the difference in the mirror and had lots of comments of how good I looked. Best ever product. I'm now a real Tartlette, love, love, love
