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

My daughter and I both use this product. I have a couple of "age" spots and vitaligo (lack of pigmentation)so I need a coverage that will blend well. She has occasional break outs and also needs good coverage. She is an athlete and wears this make up while she plays. It doesn't hold up great during games, but for everyday wear and coverage we love it!

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

    I apply this with a brush mostly by short strokes. I have oily skin and it gets shiny by lunchtime . This foundation keeps my skin matte all day long and I seal it with bare minerals loose powder and I'm good all day. I may touch up my powder if I'm going out after wearing it all day but it's rare. Best stuff ever and it goes a long way. I live in a dry climate but it still doesn't dry out my skin. It's magical

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

    I have normal skin with an oily t-zone. This product lasted me from 7am to 10pm! It leaves this beautiful dewy finish even after some light powdering. My T zone usually gets greasy within a few hours but I feel like the foundation really does its job at keep it looking more dewy fresh than greasy! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I want to try all the Amazonian Tarte line

      Goes on well, however not full coverage. I still had to use concealer on a small breakout I had. Other foundations offer more coverage. I use this on the weekends when I dont feel like using much make up. *maybe I didnt apply enough to have the full coverage effect. I applied a thin layer.*

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

                I absolutely love this foundation. I have been using it for a few days and it looks so great on my skin. I have combination skin and my t-zone can get oily. This lasts definitely the 12 hours for me. I also use Nyx Matte setting spray, so that might help. It is very easy to blend and the foundation doesn't feel cakey at all (like a lot of foundations made for oily skin). I don't need as much concealer as I did with other foundations. This is so easy to build up coverage with but a little goes a long way. I don't smell any scent with this foundation. Also, it's light enough for my very fair skin. I have trouble finding foundations that are light enough (most look orange/yellow on me like the UD Naked did) but this one is perfect.

                  I like that Tarte offers products that are free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. I tried this foundation and liked it, but decided to try the Bare Minerals liquid foundation After trying their liquid I realized that the Tarte product offered better coverage and lasted longer. It is a little more in price, but my health is worth it.

                    I believe i have oily, combination skin and am fairly new to the make up-game. Ive heard nothing but great things about Tarte brand and am very hopeful to get into it. Which foundation would be best for my oil-slick skin? I would try powder but it tends to dry out my entire face.

                      Both liquid and powder formulas of Tarte's Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation are designed for all skin types, so either option would work well for you! We recommend testing both formulas at your nearest ULTA store to experience the consistency, coverage, texture, and finish of each to see which you prefer:

                      Yes, this foundation is formulated for all skin types! For best results on normal to dry skin, we recommend moisturizing and (optionally) using a face primer prior to foundation application to ensure a smooth, hydrated canvas for smooth makeup application.
