      My friend uses this and it looks so good on her. I tried this and for a week it came off makeing me look patchy. Now i have very oily skin. Most women do not have my type of skin. I would recommend to all my friends (because their skin is not like mine). I loved that it had the Amazonian clay in it. Read benefits on that for your skin it's pretty good stuff. But for me it just didn't work. I ended up returning and buying the becca foundation and that works better on me.

        As a first timer using this, I never used foundation brush before and it helps that gave a great coverage and it didn't give a burning sensation or making my face breaking out and I love the fact that it didn't make my face dry out or it was making it flaky!! Finally something that last longer than other ones I have been using!!

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

          I love this foundation. I kept noticing that every time I asked someone with a flawless complexion what foundation they used, they all said "Amazonian clay." I was pretty skeptical at first because I had seen some negative reviews, along with the fact that it's not a very large amount of product. However, after trying to for about a week, i am very pleased with the performance and feel of the foundation. The only issues I've had are oiliness and caking around my nose, but some oil blotting sheets take care of that with no problem. I will say that their shade range is a little weird, since I have been a warm tone all my life but was matched to the Light Fair Beige, which is a cool tone. It matches pretty well, just a little strange.

          Overall I would definitely reccomend the foundation.

              As soon as I applied this. I waited a few second and my face started to inch and turn extremely red and hot. Might work for other people but defiantly wasn't for me. First time I used a "high end" foundation too. Was super bummed. I'll stick to my fit me foundation.

                        The deep Shape Tape shade can work for a large number of shades for this foundation! Your best bet would be going into a store to find out about your shade match & undertones.
