Hey guys! Welcome back. I wanted to do a product review because I haven’t done one in a while and I thought this product would be a good one to talk about. I am going to be talking about the new Tarte Face Tape Foundation. If you have followed me for a while you know that I love Tarte, but I was not a fan of the original Shape Tape foundation that they came out with. It was heavy, didn’t last long on the skin, and honestly just wasn’t the greatest quality. But luckily I was not the only one with this opinion and they formulated a new foundation! So let’s talk about it.
It does retail for $39, which is the same as the other foundation and other Tarte foundations. It claims to be full coverage which it definitely is. It lasts all day on my skin, which is great and a definite change from the previous foundation. It has a smooth, matte finish.
The packaging is really nice. It comes with a pump, which is nice but I miss the doe foot applicator of the Shape Tape Foundation. It makes applying the foundation easy and quick. But the pump is really nice. The packaging is very sleek and it comes with 1.014 fluid ounces of product which is more than standard foundations, even coming from other high end brands.
It is a matte finish, so I recommend having a really good base underneath. I purchased the Tarte Base Tape Hydrating Primer because the foundation is so matte and I have dry skin. I tried it without the primer and it was a little too drying for my skin. It didn’t cause break outs or anything, but it was a little too dry. So I recommend a hydrating primer like the Base Tape, or mixing it with a more luminous foundation.
My personal favorite way to wear this foundation is mixing it with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation. The Face Tape has the coverage I want and it lasts really well and the other has the finish I want. So I like to mix them to get that perfect look. However, if you don’t have that foundation you can use a really good hydrating primer and get a great look with just the Face Tape Foundation.
