FREE Tarteist Lip Crayon w/any $35 Tarte purchase
Tinted pressed finishing powder formulated without talc.

Keep skin looking healthy and fresh with this tinted pressed finishing powder infused with Amazonian clay to help control oil and shine. It provides sheer matte coverage to set your complexion, while vitamins A, C & E help protect and replenish skin. The silky, buildable powder wears weightlessly and blurs the look of pores and imperfections with no flaking or clinging to dry patches. It comes in four universal shades in a mess-free compact so you can use it to set your foundation or touch-up on-the-go.

Skinvigorating ingredients:
  • Amazonian clay: Nature's most perfect ingredient for better, longer, truer wear
  • Vitamin A: Antioxidant that retains moisture and helps protect against free radical damage
  • Vitamin C: Antioxidant free radical fighter that helps prevent premature signs of aging, while brightening skin
  • Vitamin E: Natural preservative that also acts as an emollient and antioxidant
  • Mineral pigments: Soothe and soften skin

Dermatologist tested.
Can be worn alone for sheer-light coverage, or over your liquid foundation to mattify with enhanced coverage. Use included sponge for on-the-go touch-ups or the Powder Player Pressed Powder Brush for buildable applications.

    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Setting Powder:

    This powder is very light weight. I apply with a brush rather than the foam pad that was provided. It stays on all day, and totally covers up the shine on my face - Love this!!!! Leaves me less-oily than other powders that I've tried and I've even noticed in pictures that I have less of a glare on my face than I did with previous powders that I've used.

    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Setting Powder:

    I used this powder as a foundation after applying concealer to red spots. I used a powder foundation brush to apply. I loved that this product did not break me out but the color is just too dark for my fair skin. Didn't look natural.

      Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Setting Powder:

      I was looking for a new finishing powder, as the one I was using before was a little too pink. I was roaming around the store for some while until I found this. I bought it on a whim as I have liked tarte's products in the past, and I don't regret it at all. After putting on my foundation, a light dusting of this is all I need to keen my skin looking good all day. My skin is prone to getting oily around 3 PM, but with this it's barely a problem at all.

                        So in tarte, I'm light sand... What shade is best for me with this compact? I am light with a slight yellow undertone. I have NO pink undertones in my skin. Going in person wouldn't matter. What's the best shade for light yellow skin tones?
