PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN!!

By Makailah

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

I am absolutely in love with this foundation. I have SUPER oily skin and the clay in the foundation soaks it right up! I have tried SO many foundations including the Makeup Forever and Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able. They just slid right off my face and by the end of the day it was like I wasn't wearing any! I HIGHLY recommend this foundation if you have super oily skin like me. You won't be disappointed with this full coverage clay foundation. I promise!

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

      I really wanted to like this, especially after all the great reviews. I couldn't find a good color for me I ended up getting the shade Ivory and it looked really yellow on me. It didn't blend in well whether I used a beauty blender or a brush, and when I used a brush I had brush streaks all over my face. It doesn't have lasting coverage and for me I would say it was a light coverage not full.

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

      I have tried other full coverage foundations, namely Exuvience (sp) and Clinique's full coverage and Amazonian clay looks the best. Natural looking, not like pancake makeup. Lots of color choices. I had to guess a bit on color via my computer monitor but the descriptions were good and I am happy with my summer (tanner) and winter color picks.

          I have been using mineral makeup, it was hard for me to go back to liquid, but I thought I would give it a try. It's a very good product, It just seemed a bit heavy for me in comparison to powder. Will stick to minerals...

              A:

              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!

          • Q:

            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! :)
            Thanks!
