Brandefy Review

*Tarte is certified cruelty-free according to Cruelty-Free Kitty but L'Oreal is NOT. Makeup Maven, Kristin, says: This L'Oreal foundation may be a new favorite product for me - but unfortunately, it isn't a comparable product to the Tarte foundation. The L'Oreal foundation has SPF, comes in 30 shades, has nice sleek packagaing with a pump and is a quite thin, watery formula that evenly applies with a sponge. The Tarte foundation packaging is much bulkier, but still provides a pump, has 50 shades in the range, and is a thicker formula that applies more evenly with a brush (as opposed to a sponge). Both of these products have a fragrance to them, but they are different and neither scent lasts after application. The Tarte foundation just looked and felt heavier all around on my normal to oily skin - it provided coverage, but was also harder to apply evenly. It didn't sink into the skin as nicely as the L'Oreal foundation, which is incredibly lightweight. I noticed that my powder face products (blush and highlighter) also looked more vibrant and lasted longer on top of the L'Oreal foundation. Both foundations did wear well for about an 8-10 hour day without touching up. If you are hooked to Tarte foundation, L'Oreal isn't the dupe for you. If you are looking for a lightweight foundation to blend with a sponge, give L'Oreal a try

I love infalliable! It’s so comfortable to wear.



I love both but you can’t really compare tarte is a true matte finish almost too matte and L’Oréal is a natural finish. I have combo skin more on the dry side and I prefer the L’Oréal.

I love love the L’Oreal Infallible foundation. I have been wearing it so long because it has full coverage but yet such a lightweight consistency and it lasts all day! Love seeing this compared to Tarte.
