    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

    This product helps your liquid foundation to set.

    It also cuts down on make up transfer because today I literally cried my eyes out with no tissue paper so I had to use my sleeves, and yup, nothing came off on my sleeve. Right then and there I knew this product was worth my money.

      I use this once I have finished putting my makeup on completely and I must say at first I thought it was going to make my skin look really powdery but it's just a matter of blending it out really well. This with a combination of an awesome primer will give you a long-lasting look without a shiny face!

        This is very messy. The powder goes everywhere.
        It has caused my skin to be itchy. I will need to return it. It does cover well, and it does take care of the shine.

        perfect invisible setting powder

        By Ariel824

        from Washington DC

        Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

        I love this! It sets and mattifies makeup, especially the under eye area, perfectly. No cake and no movement of the makeup underneath. It sets to a very skin like finish and is invisible. You do sometimes needs to build it up on the brush a bit more with the compact version as opposed to the loose powder version, but I prefer the convenience of the compact regardless.

          I really love this powder it is so light weight! I thought it wasn't going to blend my contour very well but it did!! I use it basically everyday. I really like the finish that it gives me , it's so soft and it glides in! I've only used it with tart Amazonia clay foundation, I haven't used it with other brands but I'm sure that it will be amazing with others.

          • Messy
          • Poor Coverage

          Best Uses

            Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

            I am a huge Tarte fan, and this is the first product that I will not be repurchasing. The white powder does not "settle in" on my face, and I end up looking like...well...that I have white powder on my face. It leaves a white cast even after I wipe some of it off. Definitely recommend trying something different.

            I use this as a finishing or setting powder. Works really great. Has a very nice feel and is very light going on. However is is not really a good powder for touch ups through out the day.
