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

    This has been my go to foundation since I first tried it. Great coverage and goes on smooth. The online I don't use it is during the super hot days in the summer (I live in the south) because I have oily skin and I shine up. I use Tarte's creamy powder foundation for that. I buy Tarte again and again because all of their products that I have tried are great and last forever!

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

    I have bad acne, so I really need a product that is going to cover that, and stay on well, and not let the oils from my skin seep through. I think this product would work really well on someone with clear skin. It does match my skin tone really well though.

      I mix this with the Maybelline Fit Me foundation and it works perfectly, but by it self it makes my skin feel tight and super super dry. Honestly, I probably won't buy this again, it's not worth what I paid for it. My $5 fit me foundation has better coverage and feels better on my skin.

      PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN!!

      By Makailah

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

      I am absolutely in love with this foundation. I have SUPER oily skin and the clay in the foundation soaks it right up! I have tried SO many foundations including the Makeup Forever and Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able. They just slid right off my face and by the end of the day it was like I wasn't wearing any! I HIGHLY recommend this foundation if you have super oily skin like me. You won't be disappointed with this full coverage clay foundation. I promise!

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

          I really wanted to like this, especially after all the great reviews. I couldn't find a good color for me I ended up getting the shade Ivory and it looked really yellow on me. It didn't blend in well whether I used a beauty blender or a brush, and when I used a brush I had brush streaks all over my face. It doesn't have lasting coverage and for me I would say it was a light coverage not full.

          I have tried other full coverage foundations, namely Exuvience (sp) and Clinique's full coverage and Amazonian clay looks the best. Natural looking, not like pancake makeup. Lots of color choices. I had to guess a bit on color via my computer monitor but the descriptions were good and I am happy with my summer (tanner) and winter color picks.

                I use their BB cream and have loved the Medium and Medium-Tan colors with my complexion. If I wanted to try this foundation, which color would be best for me? ALSO, is it enough coverage to last all day/night and not have to put a powder on top?? If not, I feel like I should stick to bb cream and powder foundation.

                  Yes, this is our best selling foundation & it's hypoallergenic & vegan so it works on all types of skin, even sensitive. Amazonian clay helps balance drier skin by balancing and evening out your skin's texture & it's full coverage as well.

                  This foundation is great for oily skin types since Amazonian clay helps absorb excess oil for longer, better wear. This foundation is a 12-hour formula. Hope that helps!
