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

I have extremely oily skin and this is the only foundation that I've ever had that doesn't make me feel like my makeup is melting off after a long day. It is a light/medium coverage, which is very nice for these summer months. My only complaint is that it doesn't necessarily cover my acne/red marks as well as I'd like and it is a little pricey, but overall it is a very nice lightweight, oil free foundation that doesn't dry out your skin.

    If you have dry skin, add one drop of Maracuja Oil to foundation mix with finger...dot all over face, then I use my sponge Dopper to apply, it's buildable,long lasting, a youthful appearance on my 65 yr old skin. Thank you, Tatre for such great products!

            This foundation is amazing! I have acne-prone, oily skin and this foundation does not break me out. It keeps me matte throughout the day and it covers my acne scars. I have tried other similar products but I always come back to this one. The bottle lasts me a really long time and I wear it everyday.

              I do like this foundation. It feels very light and smooth on my face. However, I do have dry skin and I think the Clay kind of makes my dry skin more noticeable. I like Tarte a lot, I think next time I will try the Rainforest foundation that is suppose to be more moisturizing. Ulta doesn't carry it though :(

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

                Love this foundation for a number of reasons:
                1) Tarte products are made without parabens, pthalates, etc (AKA hormone disrupters)
                2) This foundation is buildable. It works well with Tarte's BB cream for fuller coverage.
                3) The finish is matte without looking chalky or one-dimensional.
                4) There are many shades available, and they are easily blendable. My skin matched multiple shades fairly well.
                5) The foundation stayed on all day. This was the most impressive feature. It beat out a few of my favorite, pricey department store foundations.
                My only negatives are that it includes sunscreen in the foundation, (a positive for some people, but I'd rather have chemical-free makeup), and I have to use a lot of product for full coverage, so I'm afraid this bottle might not last very long.

                  I just recently started using this foundation and am so glad I did! My skin is extremely sensitive and although I have combination skin I am prone to breakouts. This foundation provides full coverage but doesn't irritate my skin nor make it breakout. I will continue to use.

                    I'm using born this way in light beige. I love the color but after a few hrs it's melting off since I have very oily skin. What color best matches this one? Do I need to use primer? Setting powder? I am looking for a long wearing non transfer matte foundation. I've heard great things and willing to give this one a try.

                  • Q:

                    I HATE foundation. Hate it. Recently, I have been going for a more simple look using just BB cream but I need something with more coverage. I tried the shape tape concealer but it was terrible on my skin and just separated like after a few hours.
                    Can I use this in spots where concealer would go?? My face is super oily throughout the day.

                    Thank you!
