Shape Tape Matte Foundation

So I’m completely Terrible. I just realized last week that I have 3 really amazing Tarte products that I have not reviewed.  I use these on a  regular basis too, so I’m not sure what the hell is wrong with me. So this week I’m redeeming myself and reviewing all 3 of them for a Tarte week.

I’m starting with the Shape Tape Matte foundation.


Simple box matches Tarte’s usual purple theme.


First things, This bottle is massive. It’s basically a giant shape tape concealer. The applicator is perfect. It’s spongy so the product goes on smooth. The only issue I have with it that I used too much since there is so much product it puts out in a couple swipes.


I got this one in Fair Neutral since it was the closest to me shade.


It may be a little too light but that’s on my arm and my face is a completely different shade.

This one has some Benefits:

  • Flawless full coverage with an airbrushed matte finish
  • Absorbs oil & shine
  • Helps refine pores
  • Won’t flake or cake
  • Vitamin E helps nourish

Most Importantly it’s Tartelette Approved:

  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Waterproof
  • Longwear
  • Vegan
  • Oil free
  • Talc-free
  • Alcohol-free


I’m gonna walk you through this process of applying my foundation here.

Left- I have my eye makeup/eyebrows done and my face has been primed.

Middle- I did half my face so you can tell just how light this stuff is and how much coverage it gives you.  My face is so red most of the time.

Right- a Full face of foundation and ready to set and finish my makeup. You can tell the difference from left to right. This stuff covers so perfectly.


Complete look as you can see it gives you a flawless look without being cakey. I really love this foundation. It’s easy to apply and work with in general for a complete coverage. I’ve been using it for a couple months on an off and I still have some left so It does last a good while.

These go for $39 for a 1.1oz bottle and come in 26 shades. As always there are links below.

One thought on “Shape Tape Matte Foundation

  1. That half foundation image is great! It’s cool how full coverage it is, but how it still looks normal when you’re fully made up. I didn’t expect that from the split image, haha.
