    Comments about tarte provocateur SPF 8 Pressed Mineral Powder & Compact, Medium, .39 oz:

    I use this product everyday and I love it! It has enough coverage to create a "natural look" without looking like you have a cake face. I apply sunscreen as my primer and then apply the powder with a brush. If I ever want more coverage I use the sponge applicator. This color matches my Polynesian/Asian skin surprisingly very well as opposed to other brands along the same medium tone. It still matches my skin color after I got a little sun tan.

    Especially living in a humid environment where it "slightly showers" every morning and the ocean is surrounding you, this compact does not clog my pores and stays on well. I do have to reapply if I go out at night, but who doesn't fix their makeup before going out after work? During work it stays on well especially since I have oily/combination skin and sometimes the AC breaks down...my skin still has great coverage.

    The only drawback on this compact would be that it doesn't come in a bigger size and it has a hefty price tag compared to the regular drugstore brands. However I've tried numerous brands on compact powder from the drugstore and sephora and I've found that this one has great coverage and it doesn't make me break out!

        First, what I received was slightly different than the picture on beauty.com. The name of the product and the packaging are different. It is the amazonian clay line and the sponge sits on top of the powder, which I don't like. This review is for shade light. I originally ordered medium. It didn't match. So I got an exchange. This pressed powder is amazing. I am a bit lighter than NC25 with Asian yellow undertone. The shade "light" matches my skin tone perfectly. I use BE kabuki brush to apply. It doesn't cover my brown spots on the cheeks. Then I use a concealer brush to cover. I would say it covers 80% of my spots. That is enough for me. The finish is very natural, light and silky. I did notice onetime after 2 hours, my face looked darker. I reapplied and it lasted all day, even after a nap. I would recommend this product. I like Tarte products because they are more natural. But most important of all, it works. It looks good on me. I can't stop looking at my face in the mirror. One thing I would like to suggest the company to change is the packaging. The container looks cheap. Mine doesn't even close completely. But I love the pressed powder.I give it 5 stars. I will keep it and continue to use it. [...]

          Comments about tarte provocateur SPF 8 Pressed Mineral Powder & Compact, Medium, .39 oz:

          This powder is horrible, which I think says a lot because I love Tarte and I tried really hard to like this but just couldn't.

          First of all, the sponge it comes with is useless with this formula. It's thin and flimsy, and it applies the powder in an unavoidable streaky brownish-yellow color. I don't know how this happens because it's POWDER and it's not brownish-yellow in the pan or when you use a brush, but it somehow manages to make it stick to your skin in a very strange and unflattering color. Once applied with the sponge, it's nearly impossible to blend and you end up having to remove the makeup completely and start over with a brush.

          But even when you apply it with a brush, it never settles into your skin. For about 2 hours, it's completely obvious that you're wearing powder and then it just wears away altogether. It settles into creases and pores, making them more obvious. But the rest of the powder just sits there on top of your skin, like if you sneezed then it would fly off your face in a cloud of dust.

          Like I said earlier, I tried really hard to like this powder. I even tried to use it with a brush just as a touch-up powder but it always came out with the same result.

          Overall, I would not recommend this powder and I definitely will not be purchasing it again.
