          Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

          I struggle with oily skin, and this product was suggested to me in the store. I was really excited to try the product, and ended up being disappointed. It did not work at all for me. Next time I went in, I asked for another option and was told to bring the product back for a refund, so I will definitely be returning it.

              Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

              I like Tarte as a brand and have had some great experiences with their product. I have very oily skin so was excited to try it and have it in my purse. Nothing about it is noteworthy I would say it is very much like all the other oil control powders I have used. Not bad, but not great.

                  I bought this product today and am already impressed. It was hot and humid all day, so I thought my face would look greasy. To my suprise, I looked in the mirror- and even after sweating through out the day, I was still matte! The only thing I don't like is the brush it came with. It's very compact, but I will use something different to apply

                  I was totally disappointed with this product. I have super oily skin and was looking for a finishing powder to help keep me from looking like I'm the fry cook at KFC. I tried it for a week and found this does NOTHING to control oil. Don't waste your money.

                  I love how this controls my oily skin all day. I use it over my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr full coverage foundation and it keeps me from getting that greasy look half way through the day. The only bad thing about this powder is that since it is pressed it gets a little messy when you rub your brush in it. It would be great as a loose powder in a deeper container. But still worth every penny.

                    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

                    Let me just start off by saying I am a huge Tarte fan. I have combination skin and am VERY sensitive to products and ingredients and Tarte is one brand I never worry about irritating my skin. I purchased this to help control shine and oil and help keep my makeup in place and the weather gets warmer in MN. It is perfect for just that -- easy to apply, prevents shines, helps my makeup to last longer, doesn't crease, and is lightweight. I use the real techniques setting brush to apply as it is smaller and more precise around the eyes, nose and forehead. Highly recommend!

                      This product is great! Applies easily, sets makeup, not too makeup looking, lightweight. Brush does fit inside case if you leave plastic cover on top of make up, brush sits inside it. It leaves your face with a polished look.
