      Very heavy foundation. It stays all day with the primer though. I like good coverage but I don't have acne so it might be a little too heavy for me. I imagine it would cover amazing with breakouts

        I love the way this covers but looks very natural. It looks pricey for the size, but a little really does go a long way. The first one I purchased lasted for several months, much longer than larger liquid foundation products. As advertised, it really does last all day, no touch-ups needed. Even holds up well in the heat. There are lots of color tones to select from and I would highly recommend this product.

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

              I have combination oily skin, so my T zone gets a little oily during the day and I also have some dry patches. This foundation was hard to apply. It was a little patchy and streaky. I tried a beauty blender, brushes and my fingers to apply over several different primers. Even after applied, I just felt like it looked patchy on my skin and just kind of sat on top of my skin. I would recommend using a very small amount because that does help make it look better on the skin. Also, this foundation is expensive. You get a large volume of product (1.7 oz instead of the typical 1.0 oz) which makes it a decent value, but I would rather have a smaller amount so it doesn't get old before I can use it all. The packaging is otherwise very cute and easy to use. The ingredients seem good, although I wish the SPF was a little higher. Overall, I don't like how this wears on the oily OR dry areas of my face so I returned it.

              The product is good, but for me it's kinda weird. The texture of the foundation is really creamy and thick. And depending on how you apply it, at least in my case, it'll either be a kinda sheer or full coverage.

                  Thanks for reaching out! This is a great, oil-free foundation that provides flawless, full coverage across skin types. The Amazonian clay formula helps balance skin and absorb excess oil so it's ideal for those with oily skin. You can apply with its custom application tool - the buffer airbrush finish foundation brush (link below). It has plush, cruelty free bristles that buff on even, all-over coverage and is our best-selling brush ever!

              • Q:

                Since you don't have to use a ton of this foundation for a full face of makeup, how long does one bottle last approximately? It's a lot to spend if it's only going to last like a month, so I'm hoping it'll last two or three at least.

                  A:

                  A little goes a long way for this foundation so if you use a minimal amount with each application, it should last you a few months.

                How does this foundation do with flash photography? I have read that foundations with SPF can cause a white cast in flash photos and was wondering if that is the case for this one. I am looking for a full coverage long lasting foundation for an outdoor wedding that can stand up to humidity but also photographs well.
