This microfine loose, invisible clay powder blends effortlessly into any skin tone to set your foundation to a breathable matte finish without chalky residue or flashback. The secret's in the clay - it naturally balances all skin types to absorb oil, minimize the appearance of pores & make your makeup last without flaking or clinging to dry patches. You can also use the oil free formula as an undereye baking or treatment powder - Amazonian clay will absorb shine to reveal a smooth, soft-focus finish.

Skinvigorating ingredients:
  • Amazonian clay: Acts as a total skin balancer by hydrating & reducing the appearance of dry, flaky skin, while removing surface oil & improving overall skin clarity & texture

Vegan. Oil free. Dermatologist tested.
Finishing powder: Use a fluffy powder brush to dust over your foundation, focusing on the oily T-zone to set your makeup to a natural matte finish.

Baking powder: Use a small concealer brush to layer the translucent formula over your undereye concealer. Let it sit on skin for 5-10 minutes, allowing body heat to activate & set concealer into place. Then, dust away the powder to reveal a brighter, mattified look.

Treatment powder: Apply the formula alone onto clean skin to eliminate shine & blur pores while allowing skin to breathe.
Silica, Talc, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone, Kaolin.

    Comments about Tarte Travel Size Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder:

    A beauty consultant recommended this when I went in complaining that my concealer under my eyes doesn't stay put and starts creasing in the lines. Well now it's perfect after using this! Just a little dab will do too!

      Left my skin very soft. Lasted most of the day. Had just a tad of shine on nose. Still prefer the pressed version, less messy.

        love the way this powder sets my makeup. it leaves a very soft finish to my face and helps with oily areas. the one thing I did notice when I use it to set my undereye it changes the color of my concealer (darker and more yellow). although it doesn't do this to my foundation

        I bought the travel size just to try it out and I have to say that I did love this product. I have medium light skin and it blended very well with my foundation. I did notice it helped a lot with my oily skin.

            I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PRODUCT. IT WAS HARD TO GET OUT OF THE CONTAINER, VERY CHEAP FEELING, AND WAS IN MY OPINION OVER-PRICED FOR THE QUALITY.

              Comments about Tarte Travel Size Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder:

              I use this product after I have applied my foundation and whatever other liquid product I am going to use. This product is amazing for really setting that foundation and also perfecting areas that may be uneven, and I often use this to bake my face. This product is great for anyone and I would highly recommend that everyone have this in their makeup bag. As always Tarte products are natural and cruelty free, so I would recommend them highly.

                I usually use a setting powder for IT Cosmetics but found this one to work just as well.

                it's ok, it just doesn't come off well. Especially if you are looking for a powder to bake with.
