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

    I was expecting more thickness since it is a "clay" type product. It is thicker than a lot of other foundations but I do not notice it covering as well or as long as I thought it would.

      I was worried about trying out this product because I have just recently came into the oily skin phase, I used to have dry skin and used Urban Decay. BUT THIS! This product was amazing! And matched my skin tone perfectly! It was light and soo easy to apply, it's also very easy to layer if needed! I am so in love with the outcome of trying out this product and would definitely suggest women with oily skin to try!

            I have been on the market for the right foundation for a while. My skin is very oily and acne prone, and so a good, sturdy, matte foundation that doesn't cause innumerable breakouts is always the dream, and I do think I have found it with this foundation. It was thicker than I expected, but glides on very smooth and creamy. My face didn't feel caked with makeup, in fact, if I hadn't applied it myself, I would say there was nothing on my skin, feeling wise, but the pigmentation is great, and I get good coverage over my acne scars and current blemishes. I certainly will buy this product again.

                I have severe cystic acne and extreme dry skin. I was told this was high coverage. After hydrating and priming, I put two layers of this foundation on and immediately noticed that it showed every bit of dry skin I have, which is immensely embarrassing. I used my Dermablend cover cream for more heavy coverage. I don't hate this foundation, but I don't love it. If you have oily skin, bad acne and dry skin, this isn't for you. It nearly slid off my face two or three hours later, even with a light setting powder (since it wouldn't set and dry).
