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:

              I use Airspun as a setting powder which I love but it makes me look very white. I went to go get a finishing powder with color to go on top to give some color back to my face and help control oil. The last at Ulta recommended the Tarte or IT Cosmetics finishing powders. The IT cosmetics tester compact was broken and the powder all in little pieces inside and the powder looked really grainy like that's what will eventually happen so I went with Tarte. I am usually a light/medium and with summer coming, I got the medium and the color was way too orange, streaky, and did nothing for my oil. For $30 some dollar and a brand makeup, I had higher expectations. Went back to my Revlon powder until I find something better.

                    A:

                    Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptions -- they'll tell you the ideal shade for each unique skintone & undertone or stop by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test them out on your skin. A Beauty Associate can help you find your perfect match!

                • Q:

                  How much coverage would this give applied over a BB or CC cream?? If the base is giving you enough coverage but you want to overall even out and get a glow? Maybe gain a little more coverage to completely conceal any imperfections?

                    Tan should be your closest match! Medium is a shade up if you're afraid it will be too dark on you.
