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

i like the coverage of this foundation but it looks good at first but after a couple hours my skin looks dry, patchy and unflattering. i love tarte, they are my favorite brand of make up but my skin just does not like this product even after several attempts to love it

not worth the price tag

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

I ended up returning this foundation because I was so unhappy with it. I have been on the search for a new foundation and this one definitely left me down! I have combination skin with the outer parts of my face being very dry and my t zone being very oily. This foundation made my dry areas look drier and flakier and after 2-3 hours of wear it would be completely slid off around my nose and beginning to separate on my chin. Nothing I did or changed in my prep/setting routines made a difference, so I exchanged in store for Urban Decay's Naked Skin. So far, I have had zero complaints and have been thrilled with how long it wears throughout the day!

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

    This is the only foundation I'll use because it has clay which dries up oily skin and covers my acne. I've bought this many times and never regret it!

    not worth it

    By Natalie V.

    from Chandler, AZ

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

    I've heard so many great things about this product and thought I would give it a try since I love tarts so much. I have combination/oily skin and was so surprised that this foundation left my skin feeling dry and flaky at the end of the day. It also seemed patchy on my skin and not 100% full coverage. I was disappointed... but I won't give up on tarte foundations yet.

        was feeling it the first time I tried out, though imo I feel the infallible pro matte looks better and has better coverage! all skins are different and even though I've read raves about this, it made me breakout (I never break out) bummer!! and it dried my face out so bad! my face is currently in recovery from this product! would recommend, it just wasn't for me :( will be returning! not a fan!!

          I had a hard time trying to find a good coverage foundation that wasn't cakey and lasted my whole work day and then some. I do have blemished skin with red spotting and the only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is I still have to use a BB cream and sometimes concealer to keep from seeing them. Best foundation I've found for my needs and I keep buying over and over again.

                A:

                It should be printed on the back of the tube. Sorry the print is light colored so it doesn't stand out! If you still have the box, the shade is also printed there. You could take it to your nearest Ulta store as well to have them shade match it for you.

                Yes, Amazonian clay is a total skin balancer so it works across oily, dry or sensitive skin.
