When it comes to foundation, finding the best one for you can be an extremely daunting task. Not to mention an expensive one. Not everyone has the ability to just go out and purchase a $60 bottle of foundation, only to find out that we hate it! It’s happened to me and I’m sure it has also happened to you as well. That’s why I love doing reviews.
I can share my experience and opinions with different products I have tried, in hopes that it may help you out if you are curious about a specific product. Today I will be reviewing Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation. I want to include that I did not receive this for testing purposes. I purchased this myself.

My Feelings On Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation:
When I first saw this all over IG, I knew I had to get my hands on it and see if it was as great as everyone was making this out to be. There was such a mass hype over this foundation, and I was intrigued. However at CAN $51 a bottle I hesitated for a while. It could only be ordered online and I had no idea what my shade would be. My curiosity got the best of me and I went ahead and ordered myself one.
Upon arrival, the first thing I loved about this foundation was the large doe foot applicator. You can apply as little or as much as you feel necessary without wasting any product. I don’t know about you, but the wasting of the product is a huge no-no for me. This applicator is fantastic in preventing that.
I have combination skin. Typical oily t-zone and chin, so I was interested to see if this foundation would prevent that from happening by midday. IT DOES!! This is most definitely a very full coverage foundation. I would not suggest using this if you have dry skin. When the description tells you this is a matte foundation, they were not lying!
However, if you have combo/oily skin like mine, I think you will love this. The only deterrent for me is that it has to be ordered online. Most people, like myself, have a hard time deciphering what shade they may be… I know I did. If this were to be sold at Sephora, I would be a lifetime user. The shade that I choose was a little too light for my skin tone, but I made it work by using a little bronzing powder after application. Worked like a gem 😉
My Final Thoughts:
Yes I would recommend purchasing this to anyone. If a full coverage foundation is what you are in the market for, then look no further. Tartes Shape Tape Matte Foundation will leave you looking flawless.
