I've tried tons of high end powders and was settled on the MUFE powder, but I recently tried the cheap Rimmel Stay Matte powder and it works even better.

I have pretty deep smile lines and I always use a primer. I don't have any issues with this foundation accentuating anything. I use a makeup remover wipe to remove everything and it comes off like any other foundation I've used. I follow with my cleanser and my Clarisonic. Even though this foundation is long wearing, I find that it removes easily with decent cleansing products.

I have had no problem with settling in lines. I remove it with any good creamy cleanser. Soap and water with work, but cream remover works best.

answer 3
I alway, alway, always use a primer, primer will help any makeup not settle into lines (as much) also I always use a setting powder to make my makeup stay in place all day. I never use a foundation just by itself. When I was using a sample of this foundation I had no problems with it moving or settling into any lines even around my eyes.

However, when I had this tested on my face for color matching, the consultant only put primer on one side of my face and didn't put primer on the other, just so I could see how this foundation lasted on both sides of my face. It was at the end of the day so I only wore it for four hours, but usually any foundation I have used before would move into my lines a little. Both sides looked exactly the same after four hours and didn't settle into my smile lines at all.

For removing, I do oil cleansing. Google search it if you don't know about the process. I have to oil cleanse twice with this. I would imagine with a normal foaming cleanser you would have to clean twice as well. I hope this information helps.

How long does the bottle last?
I know you don't need much to cover your whole face, maybe a pea size, but does anyone know how long the bottle is expected to last you?

It lasts me about 2 months. I use it for full coverage and with a foundation brush. I use only a little concealer with it and very little powder. I wish it lasted me a year but I have scars from previous acne.

I would say at least a year. I use about a pea size amount which gives me a medium coverage and it will easily last a year, maybe more. I apply it once a day and sometimes twice.

A lot less than a pea size. Start with a dab and a concealer brush, seriously.

Is this proven to be waterproof?
I have a tattoo that not many people know about and I will be in a swimsuit for the majority of a week with family. Would this foundation work in a pool setting? Not fully submerged all day, but definitely the possibility of getting wet. Thanks in advance for your advice.

I just got caught in a TERRIBLE, torrential rain storm for 20 minutes, if not longer. [No umbrella!] It was basically like having the most powerful shower of your life.
When i got home this foundation looked ABSOLUTELY just as pristine as when I had applied it.
Seriously, this foundation is incredible for it's long-wear ability.

Have you tried the Concealer? You may want to use both for extra coverage. I haven't tried this over my tattoo, but it does cover scars well and blemishes well. I would suggest a liner, a concealer, and possibly the foundation. I also do oil cleansing for makeup which is the best way I have found to remove makeup. I have to Oil cleanse deeply twice to remove this. I haven't "tested" the water proof, but I always get my face wet first when I cleanse. It doesn't move from a splash of water. It will move if I splash it with water and then rub it around on my face with my finger tips, but it doesn't really come off with out a cleansing process. It will wear down eventually like everything does. I have worn this for 12 hours misted my face several times throughout the day with a hydrating spray of two parts water one part glycerine several times and the foundation didn't move. I hope this helps.

my usual makeup remover didn't remove it, so I would say it's completely waterproof....I had to wash twice, the washcloth didn't finish the job. You need a good makeup remover for this.

Question
Would Light 42 work for me?
I originally bought this foundation in Light 44, since I kept reading that Light 42 is insanely light and that unless I'm Casper's cousin it will be too light. However, even though Light 44 is fairly close to my undertone (maybe just a bit too warm), it's just a bit too dark for me. In MAC terms, I would be about an N5-10ish. Should I give the 42 a try? I just don't want to waste my time (always have to order online because I don't have a nearby Sephora) on something that would be completely wrong for me. I love the coverage and finish of this foundation, so I'd really like to find a match. Thoughts?

Since you already have 44, why not get 42 and mix the two? They really should have a shade in between those two are they are quite different.

answer 2
There's a big difference between those shades. 42 is very pasty looking with almost no color to it. I had samples of both and pretty much had the same issue. 44 is slightly too dark for me, but 42 is definitely too white. I wish there was a shade in the middle.

Take a look at the underside of your wrists. Are they more yellow or pink? If they look to be a mixture of the two shades chances are you're a neutral. I'd recommend giving us a call at 1-877-SEPHORA so that one of our beauty experts can assist you in getting perfectly matched :).

I ordered the Light 18 in Kat's concealer, and that shade was great. So, I ordered the Light 44 in the foundation, since the description of the shade was the same as the description for the concealer, but the foundation was way, way too light. So, be careful with that. As fair as I am, I would still have to order one of the medium shades in the foundation, and I am never a medium shade in anything else.

The color spectrum for dark skinned women - **Online** - seems very good. If you are cappuccino, you would be like me, 66 or 68. I say that because 66 and 70 are sold at my local Sephora and I need to mix them to make the right shade. I have not actually seen the 68 or the 72. It does seem that the company has been inclusive of women with deeper complexions. The 66 is a bit golden/neutral and the 70 is very reddish (but it's great for contouring). I have used my samples for a couple of days and love the texture. It looks amazing, all day long.

Hi, the color specialist at the Sephora I visited is also a woman of color. She happened to mention that she wanted to use this product herself, but was unable to do so because none of the shades were a match for her. She said that the company was really interested in getting feedback so she was going to let them know. Hopefully they listen to all of you and make darker shades.

Light 45 -pink, yellow or beige undertones?
I just purchased the lightest shade (Light with beige undertones).

I'm curious to know what undertones Light 45 has because there is no description as to whether it is pink, yellow or beige undertones.

Im not sure if I chose the right shade, but I usually wear fairly light in Bare Minerals, if that helps.

Are you using "TARTE Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen?" There are two "FAIR" in this product. TARTE Fair Agent 00 - for porcelain/fair complexions with pink undertones: If you use this one, maybe try KAT VON D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
Light 46 - Light complexion with a pink undertone. If you use this one TARTE Ivory Agent 02 - for ivory/fair complexions with beige undertones, try Ivory Agent 02 - for ivory/fair complexions with beige undertones.
