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.

    I like it. Doesn't control all day shine for me though and I have normal skin. Doesn't break me out. Good color matching for me.

                  I absolutely love this powder. I use it over a CC cream for work for a lightweight natural look, or over my Tarte Amazonian clay liquid foundation as a finishing powder. I have combination skin, with an oily T-zone and dry around my chin area, and this powder works great.

                    This has great coverage but I have dry skin and this seemed to highlight that, even when worn over a BB cream or foundation. This also settled into creases and caked up in my t-zone.

                    this isn't an amazing product. i love tarte but this was disappointing. i don't feel it lasts long nor does it really do much when first applied. i don't see any sort of smoothing effect with this. i have drugstore powders that work better than this.

                    • Q:

                      What color should use? A sales associate put me in Amazonian clay 12 hour full coverage foundation (fairly light beige) and the Amazonian 12 hour clay waterproof concealer (light). I'm not sure what color I should use in this compact? I left without looking at this. Can you help?
