I LOVED this at first. It's light and it covered everything-amazing. After a week or two I kept (and still am) breaking out.

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

    I was looking for a makeup that has more natural ingredients and did not contain gluten. Every other product that I looked at only offered light coverage. Due to my acne scars, I prefer medium to full coverage. After reading several of the reviews I was afraid to try this product. Several review stated that this makeup caused them to breakout. I breakout very easily and was afraid that this makeup would cause a breakout. Other reviews also stated that the makeup felt heavy and did not stay on. The makeup does not feel heavy to me at all. My guess is that the people who said it didn't stay on did not use a powder on top. I bought the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder to go on top. I applied my makeup at 7:00 am and it still looked like I had just applied it at 9:00 pm when I took it off. I highly recommend that you give this product a try.

      I usually buy the Bobbi Brown foundation but it was getting kind of expensive always spending $50(+tax) for foundation. I was at Ulta and remember my sins yet in law told me she had bought this foundation and loved it. After buying this and the brush, I fell in love! It's so easy to apply and it blends in so well with my skin.

          I wanted a foundation that blends well with my complexion. I thought this would work because it states deep honey undertone. I was disappointed after I received it . It has too much of a peach undertone for my complexion.

            Shade range is great. Different undertone options. I have very textured skin so any foundation I've ever tried always shows texture, this foundation is no different. I have noticed I don't get as oily with this and it applies evenly with little product needed. Overall a good foundation.

            This is the one item I splurge on. This foundation holds up all day and provides great coverage and it generally lasts me 2-3 months wearing it 5-6 days a week.
