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

This product was so disappointing, I really wanted to like it. It's so thick but it does cover well. The only problem is, I don't even have greasy skin and it made my skin feel greasy. Doesn't dry well, rubs off on EVERYTHING. So sad.

    I have tried millions of foundations and this is the only one that matches my skin tone, covers up imperfections, and lasts the longest out of any other brand i have tried. i have very complicated skin, very oily and sensitive and breaks out easily, and while this stuff still makes me break out sometimes it is still way better and more gentle than anything else; not to mention you just can't beat how well the color matches.

      I know this is so many people's HG foundation, but it just didn't work for me. I tried so many combinations of primer & moisturizer and no matter what I did, after about 4-6 hours, I was a patchy mess and it was just sitting in my pores. Needless to say, back to Ulta this one will go. For reference, I have very combination skin with giant pores.

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

      I bought this foundation on a whim. I love tarte products and I wanted to try this foundation out after reading all the great reviews about it. As someone who doesn't like spending money on and expensive product when drugstore works just fine, I was really hoping to be woo-ed by this foundation. While it goes on nicely, it oxidizes within about two hours and doesn't last all day. I have the oxidization problem with this product and my MAC studio finish fluid foundation, but not at all with my L'Oréal infallible foundation. I have the color fair beige and apply it with a beauty blender. I would recommend this to a friend with a darker skin tone than me, but I don't see myself buying this again. Like I said at the beginning. Tarte is one of my favorite brands, but I'll just stick to the eye products and lipsticks

            I absolutely love this foundation. It's creamy and smooth. I apply with a foundation brush from tarte and it goes on smooth. It doesn't leave lines nor does it dry my skin out or clog my pores. It has a natural pigment and makes me look flawless and is buildable. I normally where just the foundation and some mascara and I'm good. i often gets compliments about me skin and am told I don't look like I have foundation on. This is the only foundation that has fit like a glove. I own three different colors in this brand. I love it and will continue to buy it!

            I wanted to try this foundation for years so after finally talking myself into it, I did. The initial application and coverage were seamless, however once applied to any woman of darker skin tones we look like Casper's country cousins. Maybe it's the SPF in it, but it just didn't look flattering at all.

              I find that it goes on really easily. I apply the product to my face and THEN blend it out with a brush. I don't put it on my hand thendip the brush in. If you do the latter method it will oxidize on your hand. I applied it like this the first time and then realized later on that I had a really orange spot on my hand where I had applied the product. It doesn't oxidize on my face. I find it has a medium to full coverages

                  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!
