Last month QVC had lots of offers on beauty and skincare products and so I ordered a few different Tarte items which I have wanted to try for a while. They also offered all Tarte products on a four easy pay programme, where you split the cost between four payments interest-free, so I couldn't resist ordering the Tarte Base Tape Hydrating Primer.
It is crazy to think that just a number of years ago we didn't even really use a primer, but now I hate applying my foundation without it. As someone who's skin gets quite dry on the cheeks, oily on the T-Zone, slightly red, large pores and more, a primer really does make a difference for me. The Tarte Base Tape Hydrating Primer is part of the much-loved Tarte Shape Tape family, which was based around the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer.
Base Tape comes in a elegant looking bottle, with a pump dispenser so that you can control the amount of product you are dispensing. I don't know why, but I expected this primer to be quite thick, yet when you dispense it, it does come out quite runny so just be careful with your first use. I found this to be very refreshing and hydrating on the skin, and I even had a slight glowy finish to my skin and it sunk into my skin instantly.
It has a gorgeous coconut scent to it, which is also great for smoothing the skin out, and the primer also contains Jojoba and Grapeseed extract to help keep the skin moisturised. Base Tape is marketed as providing up to 12 hours of hydration and I would definitely agree with this as my skin didn't look or feel dry throughout the day and my foundation stayed in place without looking patchy or dry. This has definitely kept my skin well-nourished through constant use which is great for me as sometimes foundations can dry my skin out a little.
The Tarte Base Tape Hydrating Primer costs £25.00 for 30ml, which isn't the cheapest primer around, but you often pay for what you get and it is £4.00 cheaper when buying through QVC than direct from Tarte in the US. You can find it online at QVC here.
