I like to try out different foundations then get into moods where I wear one for several weeks before switching to another one. So it takes me quite a while to get through a single bottle of foundation. To a point where I start to forget how they stack up next to each other, so I thought I would do a massive comparison of all the ones that I keep in my collection. I’m going to do a similar ranking as I did in my Juvia’s Place palette comparisons where I’m going use a few different categories to determine which foundation is truly the best. The categories will be the following: wear time, finish, price, shade range, coverage, amount and applicator.
When this foundation was first announced, this foundation didn’t call to me. And mainly it was the horrible skin tone range, they initially released 32 shades but was heavily focused on just the medium skin range. The darker tones had weird undertones including one that looked almost orange. But since then they have released an additional 8 shades to balance out the range. A lot of people raved about the formula and I ended up picking up one. I got the shade 1.20 which is the light with cool undertones.
After last year’s failure of a foundation launch by Tarte, they went on the wayside for most influencers. From a terrible shade range for both formulas and repackaging a foundation and claiming it as being new in that same launch. This flop also came with the excuse that they didn’t release darker shades because these were the “winter shades” and the darker ones came later in the summer. No one bought that and canceled them. To start off the year of 2019 they released a new foundation called Face Tape, which includes 50 shades ranging from very fair to very deep. The Face Tape foundation is supposed to be the remastered version of the Matte Shape Tape Foundation, and both were inspired by their iconic shape tape concealer. Their slogan for this release was: “You asked, we listened.” A bit late to be honest, as I mentioned they did expand the original range but at that point everyone had started looking for dupes of the concealer so they had alternatives to that. And stopped talking about their products.
I used to be obsessed with Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation, but mine unfortunately expired and that foundation is so insanely expense I just can’t bring myself to repurchasing it. But I really wanted to have a stick foundation again, so I decided to get the ColourPop No Filter Stick Foundation in the shades Fair 27 N and Fair 30 C. So today, I’m going to share my thoughts and opinions on this stick foundation as…
Foundation is nothing new in the makeup industry and existed well before the industry was established. Similar to lipstick, but made of different ingredients. To create a solid base for the rest of your look. However, the concept of matching the foundation to your natural color is.
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation Review | Is it a Dupe for Tarte Shape Tape Foundation?
Makeup Revolution (a company well known for creating dupe products of higher end brands) came out with a foundation called the Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation. And instantly I thought of the Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation. Mainly due to the fact that the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Contour is a dupe of the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. When this launched, I saw a lot of YouTubers try it out but no one was comparing it to the Tarte Shape Tape Foundation. And now I know a lot of people won’t talk about that foundation anymore due to that shade range. So if the Makeup Revolution foundation is a dupe I wanted to know. And since I have the Tarte Shape Tape Foundation (but don’t mention it on the blog or social media due to that shade range), I wanted to put them as a test against each other.
