I went into Sephora wanting to try RAEview's new holy grail foundation, Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra. After some careful consideration by three - THREE - different consultants we came to the sad conclusion that without mixing there was not going to be a perfect color match for me. Sigh. Though the trip was a no go for my original choice my consultant really hit it out of the park with this new Tarte foundation! I love the texture, it's almost a cream-mousse kind of finish, and it covers a good 80-90% of my hyperpigmentation without feeling heavy. You could definitely layer this in places to achieve perfect coverage but I like to go back in with a concealer to prevent anything settling into the lines at the corners of my mouth. It doesn't feel heavy to me at all and while it's not a miracle at preventing oil I just like how my skin looks in this foundation and that's half the battle right there.

There are 8 shades currently available on Sephora's website and I highly recommend that if you've got some not so great areas on your face that you'd like to conceal you check it out.
