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.

    Love this product. I apply with a large fluffy brush but if I forget to tap of the excess it will apply really think. As long as I tap my brush this powder performs perfectly!

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

        I have been looking for a good pressed finishing powder for going on 7 months and have tried everything from Cogergirl to Bareminerals but nothing was right for me. I eventually tried this Tarte setting powder and the minute I brushed it on I knew I had found the one! Definitely would recommend it to anyone who needs that extra layer of powder for any stubborn pores that still seem to show even after the most efficient pore filling primer has been applied.

                            Can this be used to set concealer under eyes? My concealer always creases under my eyes if i don't set it and other powders I've tried have that flash effect in pictures
