great foundation

By Wednesday731

from California

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

I adore this foundation. I purchased awhile back and since then that's all I''ve been wearing. Its lightweight, breathable, makes you're skin look flawless without making it seem like you have makeup on and its very easy to blend IF you use your fingers. I find that with a brush,most of the product gets eaten up by it. Overall a very lovely foundation.

    I use this product everyday and I swear it helps my skin look flawless! I never have to worry about my skin looking oily or caked on, especially if I'm taking pictures. Will buy this again. Have had this product over two months and the bottle is still pretty full, don't need much to get the results you want.

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

      I have a problem with foundation... finding something with good coverage that doesn't look cakey... something that has buildable coverage and can last all day... and seriously... THIS DOES IT ALL. I have very rosy cheeks and some uneven skin areas, but this covers it all nicely, and still looks natural. I wouldn't say it's a matte or dewey finish... just a natural finish. It didn't break down on my chin and around my nose, like most foundations do. And even though it's pricier than most that I buy, it's a lot of product! Definitely give this a try!!

      It's Good But...

      By InevitablyFatal

      from Fresno, CA

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

      I love this foundation. I really do BUT the tan to darker part of the range... The color variation isn't very good. It may LOOK that in the tube, but I'm not a dark person; I'm a Pacific Islander and Filipino, and I use the the DARKEST color and it's still to light for me... I owned three of the darkest colors, and as soon as you apply it to the face, they all pretty much give the same color... So during the summer I'm not able to use them do to the lightness it brings to my face. During the winter, it's near perfect. So please help out Tarte

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

        I was very impressed with the coverage. I applied a thin layer with a foundation brush and it melted into my skin. I knew immediately that I would not need powder to "set" the foundation as I usually do. I also used it under my eyes and found that I hardly needed any concealer at all! I could have applied a second thin layer to build more coverage with no cake-iness. Everyone says this is a pricey foundation, but you get what you pay for. The pigmentation and coverage is so great, you don't need to use a lot. I was using a department store foundation that was $10 cheaper than this, and I loved it, but after trying this product, I won't go back!

        Best Uses

        • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin

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

        The overall foundation is wonderful. It is lightweight and gives great coverage. However, if you have normal or dry skin I would steer clear of this product. It completely sucked out all the moisture in my face and now my skin is horribly dry.
        It takes two-three weeks of using the foundation for your skin to get super dry.
        In addition, I started to get random pimples on my chin and cheeks. I've never suffered from acne or breakouts and I wash my face every morning/night.
        I was disappointed because I have heard great things about Tarte and thought the natural ingredients would be good for my skin.

        I think this foundation would work wonders for those ladies who have oily skin!

                    For those with dry skin, we recommend applying to moisturized skin for best results. Exfoliate weekly or biweekly, apply moisturizer, and prime skin using a primer like Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer to help further improve skin texture and reduce flakiness for flawless application of foundation:
