Let me start this post by saying that I’m not a makeup guru. I hardly ever wear more than foundation and mascara. That being said, I love Tarte cosmetics for many reasons, their Shapetape foundation and concealer being one of them!
Tarte is not only vegan, but makes products especially for sensitive skin. My skin likes to have allergic reactions to things off and on. Sometimes I’ll use a foundation for a few months and then boom! allergic reaction. This hasn’t happened with Tarte’s Shapetape line (I’m praying I don’t jinx myself as soon as I hit publish…).
When they sent me a free sample of their Drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer from their Rainforest of the Sea collection for my birthday, I was ecstatic. My skin is both very oily and very dry. Go figure, right? I’ve been doing my best over the past year to really rethink what I put on my skin and how the weather is going to make my face react to different product combinations. The winter months are usually when my nose and cheeks get flaky while the rest of my face decides to repel any and all moisturizer in favor of a nice sheen of grease. It’s great. In comes Drink of H2O. I’ve been using it under my foundation off and on since school started back and while there is still some shine on my forehead, it’s not nearly as bad as usual. The driest parts of my face are no longer dry! Mission success!
There are two sizes available. The 1.70 fl oz can be found here, and the 0.5 fl oz can be found here. The price point seems a little steep, but I would consider it well worth it for the quality of product you’re getting. My skin almost immediately lets me know if something’s irritating it. I have not had an allergic reaction, itchiness, or a major breakout since beginning to use this moisturizer and coming from me, that’s a pretty good track record!
I am in no way, shape, or form affiliated with Tarte cosmetics – e.g. this post is not sponsored – I just really loved this product! (but I do receive a small percentage if you buy a product through the Amazon links)
