      Thick and creamy, but feels light upon application. Much better coverage than KVD Lock It foundation. I've gone to the gym on my lunch break and gone back to work without feeling like I need to reapply it.

        I bought this product because my salesperson told me that Tarte products are natural formulas and safe for your skin. I trusted her and it wasn't until I got home and read the ingredients that I realized it contains Dimethicone which is not considered a safe product by many doctors.

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

        I was hoping from the reviews on this that I would love this foundation. I have extremely oily skin and this foundation does not work well with my skin whatsoever. It does have buildable coverage but if you have oily skin stay away from this.

          This product is my holy grail. Easy to blend, covers well and doesn't settle in pores. A little goes a long way and too much can look cake so be careful. It can also cling to dry patches.

          Good but there's better

          By Carly

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

          I heard pretty good things about this foundation so I decided to buy it. Its "full coverage" so I decided to test it in comparison to my favorite foundation, Urban Decay's All Nighter. It had pretty solid coverage, but didnt completely cover the red areas. Also, I noticed it takes more product to cover the face than the Urban Decay one. Good, but not the best

          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

          By abwood2012

          from Branson

          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!

            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.

                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.
