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

    a true full coverage foundation! I must admit , at first the color for me seemed alittle lighter to me . I am new to wearing full coverage - I mostly use a BB cream . After I blended it in, the color matched my skin perfectly! This foundation is very pigmented and matte. You do not have to use a lot to have a nice coverage

      I wanted to love this. And I did for a minute, it applied easily, blended out well and coloring was on point. But I found that all of the concealers I tried with it broke up and looked patchy. My skin felt dried out, and I have combination/oily skin.

          i asked for a full coverage make up since I am on a hormonal treatment and started to break out and this makeup didn't do anything for me
          It feels very nice tho I guess for people with good skin might work nice for them
          But won't cover any redness or imperfections

                    I don't like paying a lot for makeup but I needed a good foundation. I have combination skin and this foundation is like magic. It covers well, controls the oil on my face, and looks amazing. I mix it with maracuja oil to help the dry patches on my face and its amazing

                        I'm using born this way in light beige. I love the color but after a few hrs it's melting off since I have very oily skin. What color best matches this one? Do I need to use primer? Setting powder? I am looking for a long wearing non transfer matte foundation. I've heard great things and willing to give this one a try.

                      • Q:

                        I HATE foundation. Hate it. Recently, I have been going for a more simple look using just BB cream but I need something with more coverage. I tried the shape tape concealer but it was terrible on my skin and just separated like after a few hours.
                        Can I use this in spots where concealer would go?? My face is super oily throughout the day.

                        Thank you!
