    Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15:

    This was the second ever high end foundation I purchased. It was originally recommended to me by one of the salespeople at the Ulta location. She recommended the Amazonian Clay Foundation for my combination skin and color matched me. When I applied this foundation at home I wasn't happy :( While it seemed creamy in the store when I tried to apply at home it was extremely thick. The color came out wayyy to orange. It was cakey and didn't last through even a 5 hour work day, even with lots of priming and setting spray. I gave it many chances in many conditions but experienced so much slide and oil that would cake up on my nose and even on my drier areas. I wasn't happy. I went back and exchanged it for the Too Faced Born This Way foundation.

            I first used this foundation on my cousin when doing her makeup with a beauty blender and I saw that the results were wonderful. However, with my real techniques beauty sponge, I felt that the product is difficult to apply. It instantly adheres to the skin when you put it on. What I like to do is instead of dotting the product, I spread it first with my fingers and then blend away with a sponge. With the texture of this foundation you'd assume it's high coverage but I think it's only a medium, I have dark acne scars and pale skin, so it still shows through. I would recommend for people with lower maintenance skin.

                  Yes, it has Amazonian clay which is a total skin balancing ingredient that works across skin types. If you have dry skin, it helps hydrate & if you have oily skin, it helps absorb excess oil. Enjoy!

                How long does this foundation last after opening? I'm thinking of buying a dark shade to mix into my lighter shades for the summer, but i don't think I'll use a whole bottle in one summer. Will it expire if I try to use the same bottle for 2 years in a row?
