Rated 5 out of 5 by Esther1 Solved my skin problem!
I was having trouble with 'breakouts' on my chin and around my nose - which I did not experience as a teenager - but started to experience when I was 70! I called it 'antique acne', and tried to make light of it - but spots and wrinkles together wasn't really funny for me.
Bought various skin preparations from a well-known high street store renowned for sourcing its quality ingredients from all over the world. But they didn't solve the problem.
I was watching a 'Will & Alison question time' one night when Alison answered a question from a customer who had 'breakout problems' too. Alison recommended Tarte products.
As I have a greasy skin, and had previously loved using Laura Geller's iconic 'Balance & Brighten' for years, until this aged acne condition reared its ugly head, I selected this powder creme product.
I had used Medium in Laura Geller's wonderful B & B, and selected Light Medium Neutral in this Tarte product. It was a good colour for me.
Within ten days I saw a marked improvement in my skin. No new spots! And great coverage, even helping to conceal the slight redness that was left behind on my skin after the dreaded spots had faded.
I bought the next shade up (Medium Honey) when I started to use the amazing and innovative Tan Luxe facial tanning oil. Thank you, Alison, for bringing that to QVC. I now use it regularly, and somehow it makes me look less 'washed out' than I used to do - and is a perfect occasional partner for this excellent Tarte foundation.
Quality foundation in a quality compact, and the brush is superb. I wash the brush regularly, using a famous baby shampoo, and it keeps its shape and texture perfectly.
I cannot be without this foundation now, and always have a new compact of the Light Medium Neutral in my make-up store cupboard.
I have not tried using this with the damp sponge technique, as I am quite happy with the coverage I am now achieving . Forgot to mention that I recently started to use the Tarte Primer too - another product that I find enhances the effect of the foundation and is great too for those days when I'm not going out and have a 'no make-up day'.
Almost all of my make-up/skin care/hair care products now come from QVC, and I am so grateful to the teams behind the selection of these new brands, and to Alison in particular for her amazing knowledge and the way she explains everything so carefully to her viewing audience. I have learned so much from these presentations, and discovered superb brands that are not available anywhere other than QVC. My thanks to all those in the 'Beauty' team, in front and behind the cameras.

Absolute rubbish, it was thick and horrible. Returned it after one use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by talk21maymay too orange
loved the brush and convenience of a compact . I so wanted this to work for my oily oriental skin but found it too orange and very flat looking ,even bronzer didn't help . this is it now, I am finished with my quest for the perfect foundation. have been using flora mare diamare flawless with SPF 15, with a sweep of BM bare skin powder. this combination does not accentuate my pores and gives me enough coverage without looking too made up.

Oh dear oh dear. This is a very poor foundation. I have used almost all the high end foundations including bare minerals, Jane Iredale so I'm familiar with the way this particular type of foundation feels on the skin. This one was terrible. I have problem free skin but even so, this foundation dragged and looked really patchy, accentuating under eye bags that I didn't even know I had until I used this makeup.
All in all, a disastrous foundation that I couldn't wait to cleanse off my face. It was returned pronto.

Hurray, light neutral is perfect shade for me. I've been wearing light sand 12 HR for last two years, and very happy with it but now trying this I realise light neutral would be the best shade for me.
Great coverage on its own, or a sweep over my 12 HR light sand foundation, lovely finish on my skin.
The brush is much smaller than I expected, and smaller than usual Tarte foundation brushes but that's a good thing, perfect for carrying in handbag or on travels.
Very pleased, packaging is also gorgeous and great value since its 11g of pressed product (versus 7g in previous purchase of the Tarte airbrush loose foundation) so expect this will last ages.

I've tried the recent Tarte TV and didn't like the foundation or any of the products really, but I tried this as the reviews are so good. Well, it's the best foundation I've ever used I think. I've got the Light Medium Neutral shade, and is perfect for my fair skin. I think the fair and light would be a bit to light. I'm medium when I tried bare minerals. Unlike bare minerals you don't get a cake shiny look from this, and also better than the Tarte loose powder one. Highly recommended, just hope it comes back in Stock soon so I can stock up.

I have Tan, Indian oily skin with yellow undertones. I like a natural finish and light to medium make up coverage as my skin is generally good.
I have been using Tarte's airbrush loose powder foundation since they came to QVCUK and I love it but it can be a bit messy and a chore to travel with. It gives a medium to full coverage.
This Cream Confidence foundation gives a much lighter coverage that the airbrush foundation or a medium coverage if layered up. The supplied brush is perfect for light application and dabbing with the sponge side of the brush a slightly heavier coverage.
I like the convenience off this compact powder, the brush is soft and fluffy, the powder does not kick up and fly every where and its easy to pop into may bag.
If I use a primer it last all day and does not make me more oily. With out a primer I get about 6hrs (spring/summer weather).
It does not look powdery on my skin but just natural.
I will be keeping this as it is easy in the mornings and good for a soft, clean and natural work look.
My only gripe with Tarte and most other make up brands brought to QVCUK is the shade range.
The center of my face is lighter than the perimeters of my forehead, cheek and jaw.
Tan is always a bit too orange and medium a bit light and pinky.
I often have to end up getting 2 shades, Medium and Tan and mix them.
A Medium Tan shade would have be better suited.

I have tried just about every foundation available and almost all QVC brands but this is by far and away my favourite. It's creamy, it's light, it's comfortable and it lasts. The compact is solid and quality and the brush is fantastic, making application easy and even. I've reordered in my shade already as I couldn't go back to another brand after using this. For me it's absolute best use is on top of the 12 hour foundation using that as a sort of BB base and applying this as a finishing powder but it is more than capable on it's own if you prefer a slightly lighter finish. This brand and it's ambassador are fabulous and I won't need any others make up brand in my extensive wardrobe now I've found Tarte! Thank you Leigh and QVC please keep developing the range for us UK Tarlettes!
