Makeup Monday – Tarte Tinted Moisturizer

Two weeks ago I discussed my quest for a new foundation.  Last week I mentioned that I had to return something to Sephora.  This all brings me to telling you about how I bought, and got stuck with, a $38 tinted moisturizer instead of a full coverage matte foundation.

I went to Sephora to test out the Clinique foundation in better colors.  None of their lighter colors worked on me, which is probably how I ended up with too dark ones in the first place.  They were light enough, but not the right hue.  So, I tried some other things that were recommended by the Color IQ of my NARS Siberia because they didn’t have the original NARS that I wanted.  I was deciding between Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation in Ivory and Make Up Forever Mat Velvet in Warm Ivory.  I ended up going with Tarte on essentially a coin flip.

I didn’t realize until I got home that I had purchased Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer ($36).  It has very little coverage.  Since I had tested in the store, I was convinced that I tested the right product, but the wrong box was behind it.  When I went back to say as much and hopefully exchange it, I saw that I had actually tested the tinted moisturizer.  Since I was focused on finding the right color, I don’t think I paid attention to coverage.  I also already had make up on that day, so it was probably hard to tell.  Since I realized this was all my fault, I didn’t bother trying to exchange it (even though they probably would have).  I suppose I can use a good tinted moisturizer?  I am going to purchase the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet soon because I need to cover up this zit on my chin.  It’s not cute.

The tinted moisturizer is applied on the left side of my face, but not the right. So you can see the lack of coverage, since you can’t really see a difference in my complexion.
