FREE Tarteist Lip Crayon w/any $35 Tarte purchase
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:

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.

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

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

            I am an oily gal and at first I did like this product until I wore it more often. I feel like it leaves a white cast on your face and you have to really wipe off the powder or it won't come off if you normally do it with a brush. When I apply it I don't mind the texture but I notice as soon as I apply it..almost like it TAKES OFF my foundation and yes maybe because I'm oily but in my opinion I don't think it should do that! Ugh so frusterating and also the more I put on my face the BECCA champagne pop highlighter would NOT show on my face so weird so I would not recommend this at all!!

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

            Let me start off by saying that I LOVE Tarte as a brand. For the price of this product, though, I expected it to be better. It does control my oil decently, but it also comes off very powdery and leaves a white cast on my face. Also, the sifter is terrible. I couldn't get any product out, so I had to remove it completely, which then made the product very messy. I considered returning it, but I figured I would just use it up instead. I definitely won't be repurchasing, though.

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

              I thought I would give this setting powder a try to pair with my new concealer. Being fair skinned, I find that it sets and looks really good on my skin. As others have said, it does last all day, and I typically just use a bit of concealer, set it with this powder and go. I don't have any trouble with oil coming through or anything.
