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

      I use foundation daily. This was my 1st time trying anything by Tarte, and I absolutely LOVE it! It covers uneven skin tone & blemish scars with minimal amount of product used. It is layeranle for the one darker scar I have. Lasts all day, no new breakouts with product. And I love the finished look. Kind of matte with a gentle "dewy" look, my skin looks fresher and younger, and I no longer use compact powder on top of my foundation.

      I love everything about this product but the reason I am going to return it is because it left my face looking too powderly. I prefer a natural finish but this was like I padded a bunch of powder on my face and it even left sections of my face dry.

        I am absolutely in love with this foundation! I have such light skin and I am acne prone and tend to get an oily T zone. But this is amazing. It goes on beautifully and I was able to find a color that matches my skin tone exactly, which is rare for me, and it doesn't cause my skin to break out or become more oily. My husband loves how it looks as well. He says it barely looks as if I am wearing makeup at all. This is now my go to foundation!

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

        I bought this for Christmas and this is the first kind I've ever bought that's not pharmacy foundation. I have dry skin, I Use hydratouch moisturizer and primer but when I put this on, it feels pretty heavy. Not to mention it doesn't last for me at all. And I use finishing spray and almost never touch my face throughout the day. After about 6 hours, if that, there are only dots of foundation left on my face, and it also makes my skin look flaky, like it dries it out more. And it's pretty embarrassing. :/ I really tried to like this foundation but I won't be buying it again. (17 yr old)

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

            I'm not sure this is made for women of color, because the shade should hsve been spot on for my skin color, but when I put it on it gave me an ugly grayish undertone. I used powder amd bronzer but it hust couldn't hide the gray. I ended up taking asuch of it off as I could with a baby wipe, and couldn't wait to get home a remove the rest. It's a thick formula but I thought it went on easy. But it wasnt holding up well on my oily skin by lunchtime. Not a fan of this one.
