    love it

    Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

    I decided to buy this in full size because I received the sample loose powder size with the purchase of my Tarte foundation. I absolutely loved the sample, so I knew I wanted the full size addition. I opted for press powder for less messy application. This powder comes with a nice brush and mirror inside. I've tried using some of my Sigma brushes with this powder and I've found the little brush the powder came with actually works best with this powder, and it's great quality as well. I still have some of my sample left, but I will be keeping it for travel purposes. I wouldn't want my pressed powder to crack and crumble because of traveling purposes.

      Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder:

      This is the best translucent powder I have used to date. It is silky, best applied with a large fluffy brush. I find that it sets my foundation and concealer perfectly. It doesn't emphasize my dry patches on my very combination skin.

            This product is great! I love Tarte products as they are great for my combination and sensitive skin. This product really helps set my foundation (also Tarte :) helping me stay shine free all day long. Tarte also makes a loose powder, which I do prefer, but this pressed powder is less messy so I keep it in my purse for days when I am running late to work and am finishing up my makeup in the car.

                  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.

                      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
