    Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15:

    I have bought several different brands. They either make my skin look dry or it won't blend well with my skin. A consultant at Ulta recommend Tarte to me. I've been using it for over a week and absolutely love everything about it. It covers well, and stays on all day. I can't wait to put it on in the morning that's how much I love it. I also bought the brush to apply it. That was the best way to apply it and blend it. I don't waste a drop of this when I apply with the brush. Love love love Tarte.

    Good product! I sweat a lot and does not stay on face long. Overall I do like it because of natural products without a lot of chemicals to irritate skin. Also goes on smooth and easy and looks natural with out caking look.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15:

      I was not impressed with this foundation. I could not find a good color match for my light/medium cool toned skin. The application was thick and fast drying. It seemed to emphasize fine lines, and did not cover blemishes well. For the price, I think there are better foundations out there. Also, I got some pretty significant cystic acne, and I'm afraid I will end up in a scar in a random place that I never break out. No thanks! Currently trying Too Faced Born This Way, and so far it seems much better.

                This is the only product I've found that didn't turn orange on my face. I'm fair skinned and I can't find many products that work for me. I've been using Tarte for years now and it has great coverage and covers up my blotchy skin.

                • Q:

                  What is one shade lighter than ivory? Ivory seems to be perfect when I tan a bit, but I need something a bit lighter because otherwise it looks a tad orange.

                    You could try fair beige or fair sand. If you have yellow/peach undertones, go with sand and if they're pink/neutral, you can go with beige. Hope that helps!

                  I've been wanting to purchase a nice foundation for prom and wondering if this would be a good choice with pictures and longevity of it. I'm wondering if the foundation goes on with full coverage, doesn't look cakey or give off a white cast for pics, and if it'll last a while through dancing and what not. Thank you for your time!
