Very heavy foundation. It stays all day with the primer though. I like good coverage but I don't have acne so it might be a little too heavy for me. I imagine it would cover amazing with breakouts

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

    I love the way this covers but looks very natural. It looks pricey for the size, but a little really does go a long way. The first one I purchased lasted for several months, much longer than larger liquid foundation products. As advertised, it really does last all day, no touch-ups needed. Even holds up well in the heat. There are lots of color tones to select from and I would highly recommend this product.

    I have tried a million different foundations but this is my absolute favorite! I have oily, acne prone skin. I need full coverage to cover my skin problems but most foundations either break me out or don't offer enough coverage. This foundation does both! I love it!!

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

          I have combination oily skin, so my T zone gets a little oily during the day and I also have some dry patches. This foundation was hard to apply. It was a little patchy and streaky. I tried a beauty blender, brushes and my fingers to apply over several different primers. Even after applied, I just felt like it looked patchy on my skin and just kind of sat on top of my skin. I would recommend using a very small amount because that does help make it look better on the skin. Also, this foundation is expensive. You get a large volume of product (1.7 oz instead of the typical 1.0 oz) which makes it a decent value, but I would rather have a smaller amount so it doesn't get old before I can use it all. The packaging is otherwise very cute and easy to use. The ingredients seem good, although I wish the SPF was a little higher. Overall, I don't like how this wears on the oily OR dry areas of my face so I returned it.

          The product is good, but for me it's kinda weird. The texture of the foundation is really creamy and thick. And depending on how you apply it, at least in my case, it'll either be a kinda sheer or full coverage.

          I absolutely recommend to get matched with your color at a store. I got the wrong color the first time. It is quite thick but blends real well. I don't use this product every day. Mostly on the weekends.

              I'm not really the type to wear a lot of makeup except for concealer and a tinted moisturizer so it's been hard for me to find a natural looking foundation that doesn't irritate my skin, but this is the perfect product! It's light to medium coverage but you can add more for more coverage. It doesn't smell bad, not greasy, not sticky, and looks so natural and pretty. I'm in love with it!
