Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer is a new 2-in-1 Foundation Concealer hybrid that Tarte is introducing this week with the Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection that debuts on QVC as a Today’s Special Value on February 13th.
As exciting as the Tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection is, I think what makes it most exciting is the new Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer that it comes with. Earlier last week I was discussing brands doing quite a few of these new hybrid formulas that acts as a foundation and a concealer all one one so I’m happy to see Tarte launching one.
Let’s take a look!
Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer comes housed in a 0.51 chubby square glass jar with dropper. The packaging resembles Tarte’s Maracuja Oil but instead of a purple glass bottle, this is actually clear and you can see the foundation right through it. Do be careful, as I dunno about you but I’m clumsy, so if you’re applying this in the bathroom you might tip it over and the packaging will likely shatter so do beware during use. I like the packaging a lot though! The dropper included is quite nice and makes it really a mess free way to get the product out of the bottle.
There are two things that I noticed right away with Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer, the scent and how light the shades ran. Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer will be available in six shades and originally I got the Light one. This was a little too light for me so I ended up getting my hands on the Light Medium shade and this was too light as well. So beware when choosing a shade you might want to step up one shade. Thankfully, light medium blended out well but I’m curious what medium looks like.
At first I thought this would be a fluid but the texture is actually creamy and thickish which is exactly how I like my foundations or BB Creams. No worries, although a creamy texture it applies and blends out easily with a very lightweight soft finish. Although hydrating, this has a smoother, satiny set that doesn’t adhere to drier areas and looks very smooth and even on my drier skin. It wears on me for about five hours before showing minor signs of fading.

The coverage surprised me….For something that’s meant to act as a concealer it doesn’t reach the full coverage mark. It is customizable so it can be applied very sheer or builds easily to almost medium coverage. As for concealer, well, I don’t think they are necessarily saying this can double up as an under eye concealer but they are saying it’ll work to conceal complexion imperfections such as dullness, redness, sun damage, etc….It should do well with most of those issues but if you have acne, acne scarring, or other major issues to conceal this doesn’t exactly offer the benefits of a full coverage foundation.
One of the main benefits of the foundation is it gives me a very bright, even appearance. It’s a very healthy looking foundation that’s natural and smooth looking. I wouldn’t say it’s a no skin look but it comes close to one!
I mentioned above about the fragrance. This does have a very unusual fragrance. It’s not scented likes flowers or sweet or fruit, it kinda smells a bit plastic or medicine-like. It does go away once applied but it’s something to keep in mind if you’re sensitive.
Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer isn’t quite a foundation concealer….! It is however, a very nice creamy foundation product that offers custom coverage of either sheer to almost medium coverage that brightens, evens out skin tone, and creates a nice flawless finish. I dunno if this one is groundbreaking but I know a lot of Tarte fans who will likely love it!
Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundcealer launches later this week on QVC.com exclusive in the Tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection.
