Rated 5 out of 5 by Glitter1981 The Best Foundation
I have tried many foundations but this one is definitely the best. It goes on so well, it's not thin and watery it gives good, even coverage. The brush does absorb quite a lot of product at first but I've found that happens with any new applicator. I did find you could see the brush strokes when applying but I just used the smaller end and it tidied them up nicely. I, personally, like to use a finishing powder as I like a matte finish, I think it gives my foundation longevity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beautyfanatic1 Lovely finish- lacks staying power
Received this foundation as a christmas gift and love it!
I have combination skin and the consistency and finish of the product is fantastic- i'd say it was medium buildable coverage. However i am slightly disappointed by 2 things- my dropper isn't the most reliable, i am starting to think i may have just got a duff one however, and the product severely lacks in staying power- i always use a very high quality finishing powder which will usually do the trick with most foundations, however with this i find myself having to use at least a primer and sometimes also a setting spray to hold the product in place- and even then i have to re-apply around my nose a few hours in.
However for me, this is livable as i love the finish and texture when applied! Tartlette for life!

Rated 3 out of 5 by endangered2 Unfortunately Disappointing ...!
I've recently discovered Tarte after being introduced to the brand by Tartelette In Bloom Shadow Palette and was really excited to try this foundation, particularly as it has been marketed as a '12 Hour Full Coverage' foundation.
The packaging itself is beautiful; the bottle looked lovely on the dressing table, and the foundation dropper meant it was easy to dispense the right amount of product, the foundation itself however, was a huge disappointment!
Starting off, the foundation blended really well with the brush, (slightly too runny for Beauty Blender), but I found that the longevity and the coverage just weren't there - I wear a good day cream and an excellent primer but found that the foundation did not fully cover my acne scarring, and after 4-5 hours the foundation seemed to transfer and/or disappear, meaning I would have to reapply!
The colour was a relatively good match, but the current range of shades didn't exactly match my Pakistani skin tone so it was clear that I was wearing the product.
The brush itself was also slightly disappointing; I felt that it was absorbing far too much product, and also, being double ended I found storage difficult.
Overall, it's not one I would reach for again, (and this one was returned), but if the formulation could be adjusted to ensure the coverage and longevity were true to description, and if QVC were able to offer more shades, I'd happily give it another try.
For now, it's back to my trusted Estee Lauder Double Wear as my search for a foundation that lasts just as long continues!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeganElizabeth Nice hydrating foundation
I found this foundation great for my dry skin, it didn't cling onto any of my dry patches and covered most of my redness but if you want a fuller coverage you would need to add concealer. Unfortunately I picked the wrong shade "Light" it was way to yellow toned for me so I had to send it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tartanwoman Doesn't stay on?
A nice foundation to apply and looks good for a short while. Unfortunately, I found it had 'disappeared' after a few hours! I have a normal skin and wear a good day cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weebella28 Brilliant foundation!!
After trying foundation after foundation i tried this one as ive sensitive skin and its water based, welll ive found my perfect foundation!! Absolutely love it. It applys to perfection over the skin and leaves your face flawless. Ive been using extra drops if i want coverage. My skin has never felt so good. I love it that much ove ordered a lighter shade for when ive no tan on. If you have sensitive skin i recommens you give this a try. I set mine with a light dusting of illamasqua and it stays lovely all day long to i take it off. Love it qvc! Xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by IvdW Perfect foundation for Summer!
I love how light this foundation feels on my skin! You can't feel you're wearing any at all - the texture is indeed very serum-like and it gives a medium coverage which is perfect. If you need more coverage, just add a thin layer - without losing that 'my skin but better' effect.
During the day, the foundation doesn't wear off but stays in place beautifully. It's a perfect base for contour, bronzer, blush - anything.
The brush is okay, but not my favourite. I feel like it absorbs a lot of the product - therefore, I like to apply it with my fingers and buff it in with the brush, to get a more natural effect.
Overall: lovely product! Build it up in little steps to keep it looking natural - don't use too much and waste product as that would be a shame!

The first time I wore this foundation I was asked all day your skin looks amazing! And it did. I tend to use more for the fuller coverage however that's personal preference. Tarte foundation is now my new favourite ❤
