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

    This product only lasts for 12 hours and that's it! Don't expect another minute out of it. I work 12 hour shifts so usually by the time I get home from work, my makeup has been on for about 15 hours. The makeup starts to get really blotchy and looks absolutely disgusting. Yesterday, my make up stayed on for 17 hours. My skin looked horrible. I have extremely oily skin, but by the end of my shift my skin looked blotchy and had dry in spots. Weird! I wanted to hide! I bought this product because I love their Amazonian clay concealer. The foundation looks nice when you first put it on, but I don't recommend it for those who plan to wear it for more than 12 hours. I can't be upset about it though. After all, it's says on the bottle that it's a 12 hour make up.

        I have very oily skin.This stuff is thick, very clay like indeed, but when you blend it in to your face it feels weightless. The coverage is great, and I don't need to wear concealer. With my skin being oily, I wear this early in the morning and go to work, by noon, I do need to blot and retouch but not as much as my previous foudation which was born this way by too faced. It doesn't get blotchy or slides around. A good purchase. I might experiment more with other foundations to find the one that keeps me matte all day but this is a good one.

          Being an *ahem*afficianado of MANY sample services (beauty box, ipsy, birchbox) I sattellited for TWO YEARS before spending the money on this foundation. I literally spent months searching for the right tone, color and coverage. For my combination, aging (43) and green and pink tones..this was all a real challenge.. but this product is all day amazing. Treat yo self!

              I tried this product rather than my usual UD naked skin foundation. The foundation was thick and heavy. After about an hour of wear, it got cakey in spots and starting to separate in other spots. I have oily skin and this was recommended to me by a consultant.

                It does settle into lines easily, and rubs off around my nose. However, it's hard to remove at the end of the day.
                It has great coverage and smells great, better than many foundations I've tried.

                  I suffer from Rosacea and need a foundation that covers the breakouts and doesn't make them worse. I use your blush, eye shadows and lipstick and glosses and absolutely love them. Thank you.

                    This should work for you then because it offers the most coverage of all our foundations and is infused with Amazonian clay which is a great skin-balancing ingredient found in our blushes and shadows.
