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

I'm a difficult color match, but the ivory was PERFECT. This is also by far and away the best product for absorbing oil for my grease pit face. I was a little dismayed when I saw it "coming apart"on my face. But I loved the Pruett qualities so much I worked on solving the problem.

I got the Tarte kabuki brush, which is crucial for even application. I tried other brushes first, but the this brush is much better for this particular foundation.

The coverage is good, but for a really polished look I apply the Tarte powder foundation on top, using the same brush.

I got the Philip Thomas Roth FirmX peel lotion to exfoliate. That helped a ton! The foundation is very unforgiving of improper exfoliation.

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

    So I used this foundation for a pretty long time (4 months) until it started really drying out my skin. It was very good in the beginning and was my favorite foundation but it turned on my skin and I cannot use it anymore. Very very drying

      I splurged on this foundation because as someone with extremely pale skin, I have exhausted all cheaper options. I have been unsatisfied with all other foundations because they gave me an orange-y finish. BUT I am so happy with this product! Its easy to apply. with great coverage, and feels so good on my skin. And best of all it perfectly matches my skin tone! Totally worth the extra money.

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

        I loved the way this product felt going on and the finish it gave me after application. I'm pretty oily but I also have some dry spots and am acne-prone. If you have ANY dry spots, this will not work for you. Four hours later, the makeup had settled in every crease and stuck to every tiny spot of dry skin that I didn't even know I had. It also didn't keep my oily parts matte. It sucked because I loved it after first application, over a moisturizer and Smashbox primer. I normally use Mac Pro-Longwear or Lancome Tient Idol 24hr but am looking for a HG foundation but this wasn't it.

        This is the first brand of Foundation that does not leave my daughter's very fair skin looking orange and we have tried probably 10+ brands. Pricey but worth it!

        Great coverage with great ingredients. I found it to be a bit challenging when it came to finding the right color. I usually don't like spending this much money on make up but you get what you pay for with the brand.

          I was a powder foundatin loyalist for years. I decided to try liquid as my skin started drying out some as I got older. I really like this. I picked it because I liked the tArte powder. This foundation gives a nice matte finish with good coverage, stays a long time, and my skin likes it.

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

          I've been reading about this product for awhile now and kept debating if I should get it or not. Over the years, I've been searching for something with my oily prone skin. I don't want to spend too much on a foundation but I got a sample of this and it works! I use to use MAC Studio Fix. That's my go to but using it everyday is not good on my skin. I switched to Revlon Color Stay since it's only $9 but I feel like my skin had adapted to the product and now it's time to move onto something else.(I also tried all the products at the drug store).

          I take really good care of skin. With the Tarte Amazonian Clay, it feels so light. It's buildable, has great coverage and make my face looking semi matte throughout the day. I still blot at least 4-5 hours into the day, but this foundation has held up. Make sure to prep your face with a primer first and a press powder after.
