Tarte Colored Clay Foundcealer 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer, Review, Swatches and Video

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Foundation and concealer (together) in a tube? How convenient! One less step for me to do! Plus, I saw a before and after pic on instagram of a girl who had some major skin issues and her face looked flawless afterwards. So I purchased (not sponsored), Tarte's Colored Clay 2-in-1 Foundcealer Foundation and Concealer in MEDIUM. This foundation also comes with a double-ended brush (shown below). This particular foundation was easier to apply, than the 12 hr amazonian clay full coverage foundation (but it was a tad darker). The coverage was the same...FLAWLESS! This time I didn't use a moisturizer and only used the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12 Hour Perfecting Primer (less glow). This color (medium) worked for me, but I have a BUT! This can only be purchased on QVC! Say Whaaat? I checked Tarte's website and it 's not there...nor Sephora....nor Ulta etc. So that's a bummer! The second thing is, it only comes in SIX SHADES you guys! SIX SHADES! YOU KNOW it's not going to work out for everybody. And a third thing (snicker)! I applied the MEDIUM pressed powder (in the video) after applying the MEDIUM foundation and the powder is darker than the foundation. Both are MEDIUMS! They're suppose to blend together! It's fine if you want to use the pressed powder as a bronzer with this foundation...but to match up...they won't. That's it for me! Excellent formula Tarte, but HELLO, please add more shades and more options to buy. I still give you a Sweet rating, because it worked hella-good for me (but it won't for everybody).

Oooh I've never heard of this before, probably cause they only sell it on QVC. It's kind of a bummer cause I know I would be more likely to buy it from Ulta or Sephora. That being said, it sounds like an awesome product! I have a tarte foundation in my daily rotation and I like it's coverage. This one sounds even better. Thanks for bringing it into my radar :)

Great tutorial video Kim the foundation looks natural and then when you add the press powder looks a little tan but still natural your skin looks magnificent I gave you a thumbs up.

Mica T said...

Oh that sounds like a great product Kim! just such a shame like you said that it's not easily available or available in many shades. I would love the ability to skip the concealer step in the morning - every minute counts, haha!

I'd most definitely try it. I love any product that is an EFFECTIVE multipurpose product! The concealer foundation looks like it went on quickly and gave you really fabulous coverage.

I like that it's a 2 in 1 product, it's both a concealer and a foundation so it's one less product to use for lazy people like me. But it's strange that you can only buy it from QVC and not elsewhere. I wish makeup brands would release more shades, 6 shades is ridiculously little option. :-/

Love the video! I always have trouble finding a match to my skin for foundation. Especially if the brand is known to not have a variety of colors. I think Benefit is definitely one that lacks variety.

I absolutely love the foundation on your skin. It almost looks as if you don't have on anything. I will say, I always wonder if those 2 in 1 foundation and concealers work, and this post has answer that question. Beautiful Kim.

I can't get over the beautiful coverage and finish from these Tarte foundations, Kim! I'm so glad you're writing about them - now I know what foundation I'll be trying next.
xox,

Sara Gerard said...

Whoa! Kim you look flawless! I really want to try this, but I am so pale that most of the lighter shades still make me look orange. I have to use translucent powder, lol! I hope all is well with you! xoxoxoxox

Love the video! I am loving the coverage this provides. I also love that it's not too cakey.

A foundation and concealer in one tube?!.. score!! The finished look is perfect, too bad it doesn't come in many shades.

Love love love the coverage of this one, Kim! Will definitely keep this one in mind. But how cray cray is that the powder doesn't match though! LOL

PS OMG! Your comment on my last post just made my day, Kim. I'm making you an honorary member of the family! :D

Hi Kim, that looks like a good product because I like the fact that it's foundation & concealer in one! I'm disappointed that it's available only on qvc! Thanks for this review.

Kizzy Von Doll said...

So, I need all this stuff!! Hahaha...I am sold!! Looks amazing!! Perfect perfect. I have never put on my foundation with a sponge, I will have to try it. I have always used my hands. You look gorgeous doll :)

nice!! i always heard good things about their amazonian clay foundation, too.

Lauren Carter said...

This sounds like a wonderful foundation if you can get a good color match. I wish it was available in a store, so I could go and get a color that matches exactly. Hopefully, they'll release it elsewhere soon!

This looks so nice on you Kim! Too bad you can't get this at ulta or sephora too! And I like products that are two in one with foundations and concealers!

Nerline Germain said...

I am not a QVC girl, but I totally love the coverage. Beautiful!

Tarte has great packaging. Not sure if this is what it is, but it looks like a slice of petrified wood that I have. I LOVE fossils, minerals, and rocks in general so yeah. Me like. They should totally expand their shade range on this though.
