Powered by:

  • Amazonian clay: Amazonian clay acts as a total skin balancer, by hydrating all skin types, reducing the appearance of dry, flaky skin, improving clarity and texture, and removing surface oil to mattify skin for a soft focus and flawless finish.

For targeted application, use your ring finger to gently pat finishing powder over undereye or blemish concealer to keep product from migrating into fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin.

                  I use this product after my concealer to set under the eye and now I use it pretty much everywhere on my face. Makes your foundation last longer and mattifies oily skin types!

                    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder:

                    I absolutely love this product. I have always used drug-store brand makeup, but after breaking out constantly I wanted to change that. After doing some research, I saw that Tarte was a great option for me. They're cruelty-free, have recyclable packaging, and every product is made out of things that are great for your skin. I have always used a pressed colored powder until the girls at Ulta recommended this to me. It gives me a perfect finish on top of the Amazonian Clay Foundation as well as the shape tape. It's lightweight and stays on all day!

                      Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder:

                      Didn't care for this powder. It's micro pigmented, and just didn't set well into my skin no matter what primer or foundation I used.
                      I'll just bring stilling to my Makeup Forever Ultra HD finishing powder
