    Comments about Tarte Travel Size Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting 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 Setting 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 Setting 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.

        This will look good when you apply it but as soon as you take a picture, you will look like if you put a pound of flour underneath your eyes, I don't recommend it

              First setting/finishing powder I've ever tried. Great feel on the skin, a little messy with the loose powder but allows you to better choose the amount you want to apply. So far I have no complaints and have been enjoying my new purchase!
