        Loved it! 12 hours later and my foundation was still matte. I wish I would have bought 2 bottles bc I'm hooked! This is probably one of the best matches for my fair skin & I'm in love with the coverage.

            Tried to like this foundation but I guess the oil is too real. When I apply this foundation it goes on beautifully but after a couple hours my skin is left a greasy mess. It also doesn't play well with other products I don't know what it is but after a couple hours my makeup is splotchy and moving around to the point where I literally can take my fingers and blend it back in, I wanted so much to love this product because of YouTube and reviews but it just didn't work for my skin formula .

              My color ended up being Light Neutral and I use a foundation brush to apply this. It's very important to me that it doesn't look like I'm 'trying to hard' with my makeup, this foundation totally fits my wants and needs in a foundation. I stick to a foundation, concealer, blush, brow powder and mascara on a normal basis, so like a 15 minute makeup routine.

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

                It's a little costly but it's really great! I have never found another product to cover my acne and pores the way this one does. I only buy cruelty free brands and this is one of my favs.

                Pros-
                Doesn't make me break out when I wear it and I have sensitive skin and occasional breakouts.

                A little goes a lon way.

                Vegan and cruelty free.

                Cons-
                It's a little messy trying to blend it.
                A little costly.

                      Yes, this is our best selling foundation & it's hypoallergenic & vegan so it works on all types of skin, even sensitive. Amazonian clay helps balance drier skin by balancing and evening out your skin's texture & it's full coverage as well.

                      A:

                      This foundation is great for oily skin types since Amazonian clay helps absorb excess oil for longer, better wear. This foundation is a 12-hour formula. Hope that helps!

                    When picking the best color for me, which I chose Light Beige because the description says: (light w/ pink undertones). I just wanted to make sure that the description is what type of skin you have and not what the color of actual product. I don't need any extra "pink" in my complexion! :)
