Love this product overall

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

I absolutely LLOOVVEE this product, but I do have a few issues with it. I have combination to oily skin and this product does a very good job keeping the oils out only if you apply a primer first. I used this product without a primer and setting spray for a few days because I ran out of both and the makeup started coming off halfway through my day at work and it showed the areas where I am dry. I'm not sure if it's the primer or the setting spray, but that's the only problem I have, otherwise this product is my holy grail!

        This was suggested to me and I'm in love. I'm an urban decay girl, but wanted a foundation with more coverage sometimes. This product really delivers, and you get more in the bottle for about the same price as many foundations

          The best foundation I've ever tried! Goes on really well, blends exactly how I want it to, and doesn't feel too heavy or sticky. Usually cream/liquid foundations tend to break my face out due to my sensitive skin but that is definitely not the case with this product! It is wonderful! Definitely my go-to foundation from now on!

            This is my favorite foundation to use i purchased a second one cause I ran out. It is a bit pricey but it lasted me a long time. This foundation has a good coverage and it feels like I'm not wearing anything. It does cling to my dry parches but not too badly. I do get oily but I am a very oily person in general.

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

            I like how a little goes a long way. It's definitely full coverage. So just have to make sure to blend it well. The texture is not as liquid-y as other foudation, I want to say this one is a bit thicker. Which allows for better coverage and last longer. Because of the thickness it's easy to go overboard and get a cake-y look. So, BLEND BLEND BLEND. I wouldn't recommend this for really dry skin because it'll cling onto any dry spots hence making them notable. Love that it has at least some spf.

                  After pregnancy I was left with dark spots on my skin, and I absolutely love the coverage that this product provides. It gives a nice even skin tone for someone with a lot of freckles and I Nieman skin tone. It is lightweight, airy, and a little goes a very long way. Although I am normally a bargain shopper, this foundation is definitely worth it's weight in gold.
