      The first time I used, it was amazing! My face were like whoaaa! But then later I haven't used it for few weeks. And I decided to apply it on, and then my face got dry. It doesn't really stay that long like it should. My face is combo skin. So it sucks.... I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has combo skin

        I struggled with finding the right foundation for years. My old foundation used to come off after only a few hours and it made my face look shiny. But this foundation stays on all day and I don't look shiny.

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

            Bought this to replace a popular mineral foundation I had been using for years. I'm in my late 30's and started to notice that the powder was not sitting well on my skin. My pores were very visible and it highlighted the fine lines. I've been using the Tarte liquid foundation for a couple weeks now and absolutely love it. I use very little and it goes a long way. It goes on very smooth and even with Tarte's foundation brush, that I also purchased. The girl at the counter also matched the color perfectly to my skin tone so no weird streaks or mismatched neck and face. It seems to last all day, gives me a nice even finish to my face. Seems to minimize the appearance of my pores and doesn't settle in the fine lines. I also have combination skin. Starts out very dry and gradually gets oily spots throughout the day. I use a little coconut oil on my face before applying the foundation and have had no trouble with dryness or oilyness so far. So far I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to someone with skin that is in the early stages of aging.

              My pores are really noticeable and it makes me self-conscious, but this foundation really did the trick! It stayed on all day through school and work. And it make my skin feel so smooth! If you have something to cover up this foundation will do it!

                    A:

                    Because of the consistency of this formula we recommend using a buffing brush to create a smooth, consistent coverage.

                • Q:

                  I've been using pur minerals 4 in 1 pressed powder. Loved it until developing cystic acne after my pregnancy. I've found cream foundations to have better coverage and need full coverage to stay on all day. I sweat a lot at work. I get dry patches where I treat the cystic acne spots and they leave scars... Golden medium in pur minerals was a perfect match for me but constantly reapplying to cover. Everything I've tried seems a little too pink on my face. I'd prefer to not wear a mask. Lol! Please help with recommendations for a good match and longer wear without looking caked on. Thanks a million!

                    Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptions -- they'll tell you the ideal shade for each unique skintone & undertone or stop by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test them out on your skin.

                    A:

                    Flashback typically occurs when you have a higher SPF. Since this is SPF 15, it shouldn't give you any flashback.
