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

    I used to have very oily skin. Now that I'm over 40 it's a less oily. This foundation stays on and does not make me oily at all. Recently I tried another prestige brand foundation, recommended highly by a you tube makeup genius, and it made me an oil slick by noon! Back to my Tarte...no trace of oil after all day!

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

                I was looking for a makeup that has more natural ingredients and did not contain gluten. Every other product that I looked at only offered light coverage. Due to my acne scars, I prefer medium to full coverage. After reading several of the reviews I was afraid to try this product. Several review stated that this makeup caused them to breakout. I breakout very easily and was afraid that this makeup would cause a breakout. Other reviews also stated that the makeup felt heavy and did not stay on. The makeup does not feel heavy to me at all. My guess is that the people who said it didn't stay on did not use a powder on top. I bought the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder to go on top. I applied my makeup at 7:00 am and it still looked like I had just applied it at 9:00 pm when I took it off. I highly recommend that you give this product a try.
