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

    I am all about skincare/foundations after having VERY acne prone skin most of my life! An Ulta employee recommended this to me when I was planning to do my own makeup for my wedding, and I have not been disappointed. The cost may throw some people off, but this bottle lasted me 4+ months after nearly-every-day wear, and I am pretty generous with my applications! I have received so many compliments on my complexion since using this, and it stays on beautifully through my 12+ hour night shifts as a nurse (it even stays on when I work out after work!). My all-time favorite foundation for sure! If you can get over the initial sticker shock, I promise it will be so worth it!

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

          I've reviewed this foundation before but I had to say more after I finally FINALLY locked down the right color. One of the biggest pros is that it comes in so many shades...but that also makes it so much harder to find the best match for my skin! I had settled on Light Neutral, but in looking closer I realized it wasn't the best match for me. So, I tried Light Beige and it's a total winner! I will use this foundation forever if Tarte keeps making it! It goes on smoothly with fingers (even more so if moisturize first, but I don't always do that) and then I blend it with a brush. It will last for hours, especially if you use powder over it. I love it. It looks flawless and now that I've found my best shade I will rock it every day!!

                      This foundation is NOT full coverage for oily skin. If you apply more than one application of the product it began still ok cakey. I would not purchase this product I am going o stick with my Kat Von D for a full coverage matte foundation. I was just looking for more than one choice.

                        I'm not sure what shade I should get. I'm more of a neutral undertone but the lightest neutral shade is too dark. I think it's called fair light neutral. What shade would u recommend?

                          Any of Tarte's face primers perform beautifully layered beneath Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15. We especially love Timeless Smoothing Primer, which diminishes the look of fine lines and pores and provides a blurring, soft focus effect:

                          Though you can certainly use a face primer of a different brand, if you prefer!

                          Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 features a satin-matte finish and is formulated for all skin types. It features a long wearing formula for up to 12 hours of wear. You may wish to use in conjunction with an oil control primer and/or finishing powder to ensure lasting wear and a matte finish. We suggest Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer and Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder.
