First Impression: tarte Clay Stick

I wonder if UPS people know how much joy they bring to people who have been obsessively tracking their packages and literally bolt to the door when it finally arrives? It must be a very rewarding career πŸ˜€ I was going to share my Sephora haul but I feel so weird about sharing hauls, which is weird because I love reading haul posts but it makes me feel weird. How many times can I say the word weird? I am super into makeup but I also read and do other things, just so you know πŸ˜› I dunno, I’ll think about it. Let’s talk about how many face mists I just tested out – like 5, I don’t want to talk about it.


I do want to share one item from my haul because I am so excited about it. It is the tarte Clay Stick Foundation that I have been dying to try. First things first, I love the package – so sleek and matte. I ordered this online and I chose to use the foundation shade finder on Sephora and I think they definitely sent the wrong shade…? I mean, the description sounds right – light skin with pink undertone but Light Beige looks super orange. Anyway, I swatched it already and am probably just going to have to make it work. The formula is so smooth and buttery – the swatch blended like a dream. The only thing that concerns me there is that it might be lighter coverage, but I am still excited to try this out! Currently this foundation is offered in 12 shades and retails for $39 and I think it is a Sephora exclusive. I would recommend going to the store to find your shade as I don’t know how much faith I put in the online shade finder.


Have you tried it? Thanks for stopping by ❀

    • Awww – thank you 😘 I used Canva – they offer a ton of free graphics and social media layouts. I nust upload my own photos!

  1. I almost never order online because I’m never home to get the packages right away! It would likely just melt all day until I can get it!

    • I’m pretty lucky, I only live about 10 minutes from my work and can usually catch deliveries if I come straight home. I don’t know if I’ve had anything melt πŸ˜„

      • It is! I commuted for 45 minutes both ways for years then decided to move, I love it! I wouldn’t be surprised if it got warm enough 😊

      • That’s my commute now. I hope to someday live closer to work but my office is in a really nice suburb so that’s not happening quite yet! πŸ˜…

      • That’s the worst! But maybe someday, it took a couple of years before I finally did it πŸ™‚

  2. I feel a bit weird about posting my own hauls too! I think I’m just worried about people judging me for what i decided to purchase.. its so silly!

    • I have! Dermablend is really full coverage and has a pretty wide variety of shades. I don’t think that they are cruelty free any longer but I could be wrong. Bobbi Brown does a really nice stick foundation that is full coverage with a satin finish ❀
