    I got so sick and tired of cheap foundation not covering and not lasting through one nine hour day at work. I finally was introduced to this after many failed attempts with other expensive foundations. This one did everything covers well and stayed on all day long even into the evening it still looks great!!

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

      I've had to purchase new foundation because with all of my outdoor activities, my skin in now darker. I have found a new best friend in Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage foundation. Application is easy, you can use your fingers, a sponge, or a brush - I prefer the latter. It matched my skin tone perfectly (the shade I chose), and I like that it's waterproof (have not tested that yet). I was told it was designed for the US Olympic Synchronized Swim team. While I won't be swimming with this, it's good to know that it will hold up to Houston's heat and humidity.

          I bought this hoping it would be a long term loyal purchase I'd make, thinking it was the foundation for me. It's an okay foundation, but it's definitely not full coverage as it says. It compares to Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation exactly. If I was blind folded, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two on my skin. I honestly thought Revlon Colorstay looked better, if anything. I think it's alright, but if you're looking to save some money and are hoping this stuff is a miracle, it's not worth it. Revlon Colorstay is only like $12 and it's identical to this stuff.

                Will this settle in deep lines and look caked by the end of the day, drying out skin and make it wrinkles look more pronounced.

                I have pale dry skin but it tends to produce a little oil through out the day. I'm a wondering if this has a matte finish that doesn't result in looking chalky.

                Hello
                So I am starting school soon and I was wondering how this works with flash photography? This is my only foundation and I don't want to go buy a new one if it does have a white cast since I do have to take a picture for my student id and of course yearbook pictures.

                  Yes - Amazonian clay is a great skin balancing ingredient, which means that it helps eliminate surface oil while also helping to replenish and hydrate skin at the same time.
