Tarte also has a group of foundations, and concealer that allow your face to have that flawless appearance without being photoshopped.
Peaches & Cream is an oil-free liquid powder mineral foundation that provides a "soft, powdery finish that's just peachy" as tarte so rightly puts it. Now, when I first used the foundation, I was a bit leery simple because it didn't feel like a normal foundation did. I expected something that was a bit softer, like a lotion, as far as the way it felt against my fingers. Not that it was an issue - once I applied it, it didn't feel awful against my face nor was it noticeable after application. But then I realized,
when I actually took time to read the bottle, that it was a liquid powder. That explained why it actually felt more like a powder than a liquid foundation. Something I really like about this foundation is not only does it give you a nice complexion, but it also stayed on throughout the course of the day. I've always hated when foundations start to fade away from a simple touch of the hand, or what have you. But the Peaches & Cream foundation didn't do that. For those of you who may be thinking about purchasing it - if I were you, I'd get it before it's gone. This foundation is limited-edition and is probably going fast.
Now, in addition to Peaches & Cream, there's another foundation out there called Smooth Operator.
This one, I really liked, simply because of it's smooth texture and natural finish - and of course, it didn't give a heavy, caked on feeling when applied. Like Peaches & Cream, it also stays on all day without having to rush to the nearest restroom for those little foundation "touch-ups." Though I've already expressed it's smooth texture, I feel I need to stress just how nice it feels against the skin...it doesn't irritate, it doesn't feel sticky, and it leaves your skin youthfully smooth. And for those of you who have a difficult time picking out the perfect shade, Tarte's website has added a "celebrity color chart" that gives perfect examples of what shade matches what skintone. So whether you're a lighter shade like Nicole Kidman or a darker shade like Halle Berry, Tarte supplies the perfect shade for you.
Finally, one of my favorite tools by Tarte: The Eraser.
The Eraser is a smooth concealer that allots you to cover up any blemishes that remain even after applying foundation. And let me tell you...boy does it work. The concealer's container works much like some lipglosses I've seen, like the Stila lipglaze ones. On one end, you have the removable cap for the brush - the other end, a mechanism that you twist in order to pump the concealer onto the brush. Now make sure you don't twist the end too much, or you'll end up with a large glob of concealer on your brush! Twist once or twice, wait a moment, and the formula will end up within the brush on the other side. Then, just apply to your blemishes, circles beneath the eyes, etc. and you're done! Now, matching it to your concealer might seem difficult to some - but thankfully, on Tarte's website, it gives a color reference to match the concealer to the Smooth Operator shades. So if you're somewhat light, but not exactly fair, more than likely you use a foundation closer to the shade "Veil" (Smooth Operator). The color reference list suggests the shade "light," one above the lightest shade, "fair." So if you're thinking about getting The Eraser, but are leery about which shade to get, have no fear! Just check out what they suggest for your shade.
