Foundation Friday – @tartecosmetics Babassu Foundcealer Skincare Foundation

November 6, 2020

Even though my collection contains several foundations that I would consider excellent on my skin, my hunt for perfection has never ceased. I heard fantastic reviews about the @tartecosmetics Babassu Foundcealer Skincare Foundation ($15 for .33 ounces – (pictured) and $39 for 1 ounce –, so I made it the next on my list to try!

What it claims:

🔘 This vegan makeup & skincare hybrid delivers an ultra-comfortable, natural radiant finish & medium customizable coverage so you can live your day, your way

🔘 Helps hydrate & give the appearance of plumper skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles

🔘 Protects skin with SPF 20

🔘 Formulated with nourishing superbalm babassu, essential fatty acids & antioxidants

My experience:

🔘 I have worn this on two (2) separate occasions and for over twelve (12) hours on both days.

🔘 I applied this with a damp beauty sponge.

👍🏻 While the description says medium coverage, I definitely achieved high medium coverage with not a lot of product.

👍🏻 It blends out easily and works well with all of the other products I used it in conjunction with.

👍🏻 The finish is nice. It claims to be naturally radiant, but, on my skin, it was a bit more on the naturally matte side.

👎🏻 Around four (4) hours in, I noticed that it started to fade and bunch up in the side creases of my nose. It wasn’t too noticeable and thankfully didn’t get much worse as the day went along.

👎🏻 It sunk slightly into my forehead lines halfway through the day.

My verdict?

If I had tried this foundation in years past, I likely would have fallen in love. The coverage, the finish, a majority of the way it wears – wonderful! However, the more foundations I try, the more foundations I find that are near perfect and this one just isn’t that for me. Since I only invested in the mini, I will likely use it as a mixer to increase coverage in other products to use it up, but I won’t be repurchasing once it’s gone.
