We all remember that travesty in 2018 which was Tarte Cosmetics’ Shape Tape Foundation. But this year, Tarte went all in to avenge their previous mishap – with their Face Tape Foundation. Personally, I haven’t used Face Tape yet, so I don’t know how well it works. But at least the shade range was SO MUCH better than before.

But Tarte isn’t done yet. The brand have introduced their new upcoming foundation – The Babassu Foundcealer Skincare Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF20. That’s a mouthful. The “foundcealer” claims to be your next favourite foundation and skin care in one.

Although I’m not a fan of the name, the foundation seems to be doing well with influencers before it hits retail. It sort of reminds me of the Milani 2-in-1 Foundation+Concealer. (At least the Milani one is easier to name.)

Let’s see the details of the Foundcealer, as mentioned on Tarte’s website.


Babassu foundcealer™ (n.): a vegan, skincare foundation AKA your total complexion solution. This vegan makeup & skincare hybrid delivers an ultra-comfortable, natural radiant finish & medium customizable coverage so you can live your day, your way.

Apparently, in a Clinical Study, 100% of women showed improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 10 days.

IF that is true, then this might just be our favourite foundation this year.

Thankfully, you don’t have to wait 10 days to get your hands on it.

The Babassu Foundcealer launches on Tarte’s website and Sephora on March 21st. The range has 30 shades.

A voracious addict of everything beauty, little did I know I would be treading down this path. Started off as a dentist, occasionally dribbling in the arts. Now full time Instagram browser and money spender. They say money doesn't buy happiness. I disagree. They probably didn't know where to shop.
