Final Thoughts
–(IMO) This is Tarte’s version of the viral KVD Good Apple Foundation, but it’s everything that Good Apple wasn’t (I HATED that one)
–Shade range isn’t vast in number, but the tones are good
–QVC exclusive (annoying)
–Pricey, but you get a full size foundation ANDa brush for $45 so not a bad deal. Tarte brushes are excellent quality an the price is fair for the duo
–You will want to set this as it stays tacky
–Full coverage with one layer
–Didn’t notice any smoothing or blurring, but agree with all other claims
–I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin, but with proper prepping/setting it could work
–Longwearing
–Can get the same look with the SheGlam Skinfluencer Balm (reviewed here) and it’s only $8.49
