Benefits:
  • Tarte 12-hour power
  • Dermatologist tested

    I like this product because it is easy to apply and lasts all day. A little goes a long way and you can always build up coverage if you are looking for a stronger highlighter. I love this product and would definitely buy it again. Plus it smells like birthday cake which is always a pro!

        Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter:

        This highlight is gorgeous! Doesn't emphasize my pores, which is a huge plus. Gorgeous natural highlight, but you can make it super intense by layering it or using a wet brush. I prefer to use this product with a wet brush, as I get glitter all over my face otherwise. Which is my only con about this product. But with a wet brush, it looks BEAUTIFUL!!! Perfect for my complexion, as well, as I'm very fair.

It has the perfect color (not too white or too gold) and it is soooo intensely packed that I feel like it just gives off such a glow. And it last alllll day long! Highly recommend

        Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter:

        I have a great love of highlighters and the Tarte Amazonian collection, therefore I thought this was an awesome deal when I saw it during Ulta's "21 Days of Beauty." However, I have tried it a couple different times and I am just not impressed. I like my highlighters to be super shimmering, almost blinding, and this definitely does not do that. It took a lot of work to get any of the product on my brush, and I did not find it very noticeable on my very fair skin. It you like lighter highlights this might be the product for you, but it wasn't for me. I will probably end up returning.

          Not the same highlights

          Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter:

          Stunner is a nice bright but subtle highlight with no chunks of glitter. Exposed on the other hand is much more intense with lots of glitter. I had to return exposed and I wish it was the same as stunner. Just be aware that these aren't the same formula with different shades, they are different, which is a shame.

                Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter:

                I had high hopes for this highlighter. Although it's a nice color, it doesn't give me that wow factor. Feels nice swatching it but pigment is not that good. Need to constantly spray my brush to get pigmentation on my brush and cheek bone. I reach for my other highlighters more than this one. Not buying again.
