Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Finishing Powder is a talc-free, vegan tinted pressed powder formulated with antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E that sets makeup and helps control shine, keeping skin hydrated and matte.

What the product does:
Keeps skin hydrated, matte, and beautifully balanced. Silky, featherlight powder can be worn solo as a sheer complexion corrector or on top of other makeup, and is formulated with Amazonian clay and antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.

What else you need to know (eg. 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
  • Vegan
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.

        I sweat ALOT. This is the only powder I have ever owned that stays put no matter what for HOURS! I will never buy anything else! I use this on top of the Amazonian Clay Foundation. I am fair skinned and they match my skin perfectly.

            I really wanted to love this product but honestly it's just like an average $5 drugstore powder. It's not worth the money at all. It looks good initially but does not keep you mate whatsoever. After ~hour you look like you forgot to apply powder on. The color is great but that's really about it. This would be good for someone who doesn't get oily throughout the day but just wants to set their foundation.

                      This is a setting powder! If you're looking for a pressed powder foundation, we suggest the confidence creamy powder foundation.

                      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.
