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

I bought this hoping it would be a long term loyal purchase I'd make, thinking it was the foundation for me. It's an okay foundation, but it's definitely not full coverage as it says. It compares to Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation exactly. If I was blind folded, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two on my skin. I honestly thought Revlon Colorstay looked better, if anything. I think it's alright, but if you're looking to save some money and are hoping this stuff is a miracle, it's not worth it. Revlon Colorstay is only like $12 and it's identical to this stuff.

      I thought it was going to feel much heavier with the word clay in the name. However, it's very airy feeling and blends well. It so far seems worth the buy.

          • Q:

            I have pale dry skin but it tends to produce a little oil through out the day. I'm a wondering if this has a matte finish that doesn't result in looking chalky.

            Hello
            So I am starting school soon and I was wondering how this works with flash photography? This is my only foundation and I don't want to go buy a new one if it does have a white cast since I do have to take a picture for my student id and of course yearbook pictures.

              Yes - Amazonian clay is a great skin balancing ingredient, which means that it helps eliminate surface oil while also helping to replenish and hydrate skin at the same time.

              This foundation works great with or without a primer. If you have oily or combination skin, we recommend trying our poreless or timeless smoothing primers. If you have dry or dull skin, you can try our flawless brightening primer. Enjoy!

              This foundation is oil free, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. It's great for oily skin types because it's powered by Amazonian clay which works to balance skin and absorb excess oil. Hope you enjoy!
