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

I bought this foundation on a whim. I love tarte products and I wanted to try this foundation out after reading all the great reviews about it. As someone who doesn't like spending money on and expensive product when drugstore works just fine, I was really hoping to be woo-ed by this foundation. While it goes on nicely, it oxidizes within about two hours and doesn't last all day. I have the oxidization problem with this product and my MAC studio finish fluid foundation, but not at all with my L'Oréal infallible foundation. I have the color fair beige and apply it with a beauty blender. I would recommend this to a friend with a darker skin tone than me, but I don't see myself buying this again. Like I said at the beginning. Tarte is one of my favorite brands, but I'll just stick to the eye products and lipsticks

      I love this foundation. I have very oily skin, and this foundation stays on all day. My skin is also very sensitive, and this doesn't break me out or cause redness. It's great for covering up zits and imperfections. I definitely recommend this!

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

        It doesn't work different then any other makeup for me. I'm extremely oily and still see the same oiliness in the same areas as I had when I used Estee Laudre. It says it's full coverage, but it really isn't. You have to use a lot of get full coverage without using a concealer where as with Estee Laudre you only have to use a small amount to have full coverage. Conclusion: Estee Laudre is better especially if you have oily skin and still want full coverage.

          I spent years trying to find the perfect foundation. I found this about 3 years ago and haven't tried another since! I constantly get compliments on my complexion and asked what foundation I am using. I love that the coverage lasts all day. It takes a small amount per use. 1 bottle usually last around 3 months.

          I'm a covert! I've always been a dewy foundation girl since I have pretty dry skin. But this foundation is AMAZING! As long as you moisturize well and maybe add an illuminator it is wonderful! Doesn't slip or slide into my creases! Lasts a good while before a touch up is needed! And a little goes a long way. It does take a little bit of time to blend as its consistency is "whipped" but it's very nice!

            I went on a limb and bought this after using it! CC cream and urban decay all nighter. I like full coverage matte finish. All nighter was great but the tone never matched and it! Got greasy half way through the day and that's being generous. I'm also horrible at choosing color so I like that this tells you what tones etc. used it for the first time today and topped it off with the tarte Amazonian clay finishing powder in medium ( I have the foundation in medium beige).... at first I wasn't sure what I thought but after it sat in my skin for a minute I was freaking airbrushed! Smooth but natural. I have worn it all day and NEVER felt oily, I have not re- applied and I rode on a motorcycle for about 6 hours and between wind, helmet, glasses and bandana it's still awesome, ya I could probably use another dusting of finishing powder if I wanted to go out right now but it also looks just fine the way it is. It's super light weight and very comfortable it is not heavy like other full coverage products. You will love this!!!! I am definitely buying this for a long time.

            This was my 4th foundation I have tried. The very first one to be a perfect match to my skin tone. It looked GREAT at first and for the first few hours. A few hours later (about 5hours) of it being on I went and looked in the mirror and my entire face had turned to a burnt orange color and it looked very caked on. I was so sad. I thought I had finally found the perfect one.

                Yes, it has Amazonian clay which is a total skin balancing ingredient that works across skin types. If you have dry skin, it helps hydrate & if you have oily skin, it helps absorb excess oil. Enjoy!
