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

As someone who is very picky about products and foundation, I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation. I now have very oily skin from going to the gym so often and this worked wonderfully with helping to prevent future breakouts by not further oiling your skin. Would buy again!

Absolutely Not

  • Heavy

Best Uses

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

    It's heavy, feels like a mask, and only offers medium coverage. Even with a great primer, it sinks into all visible pores, making you look spotted. It causes a massive breakout within three days, no matter how well you wash it off. I've used about 30 different foundations and this is the absolute worst for my combination sensitive skin.

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

      I have never been much of a foundation wearer because I had never found one that lasted, yet didn't feel or look like I was covered in makeup, until I found this one. I have combination skin that it very dry on my t-zone, yet I sweat alot under my eyes. I have worn this every day for about three weeks now and it has lasted at least 10 hours every day. I am a nanny so I don't like to have much make-up on most days and this is perfect as it is so buildable. I wore it this weekend all day at a wedding and it lasted great with a primer for 14 hours of crying and dancing.
      I apply with a buffing brush and it blends wonderfully. I really cant say enough good things about this foundation and how well it works for all events.

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

      This is a medium coverage.
      Easy to match color.
      Feels great, didn't cause me to breakout (which everything does).
      However, I will be returning it because my skin gets oil literally within 1 hour of applying. Going back to Revlon ColorStay Makeup For Combo/Oily Skin til I find something better.

      This will probably be a great foundation if you have dry skin.

      Pretty disappointed wish there was a better color range. I am at my darkest Medium tan, I tried the deepest shade and it was terrible. I really wanted to like it :(

        I have extremely white skin with extreme sun damage on my face from years of sun abuse. I needed something that would cover the red, yet still not be to heavy. I got this yesterday at Ulta and I am in love with this product. Can't say enough about it..

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

        first off this product is pretty pricey and i can get the same coverage by layering two cheaper foundations, plus it would look more natural. i used a small dollop of this with a beauty blender and it still felt heavy and cakey. does not look like skin at all, but if a full coverage, made up look is what you're looking for this is great. it's also really matte and long lasting but washes you out

        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.

          • Q:

            I like the silky silicone texture of this makeup and would like to use it as my base (primer) and put my liquid full coverage water resistant foundation (also silicone base) on top of the Tarte and then lightly setting it with powder. The purpose of the Tarte is to even out skin tone and give me a smooth canvas for my full coverage makeup. The Tarte alone does not provide full coverage for me and I do not want to use concealer with it since my current foundation works also as a concealer and is water resistant. The Tarte CC stick primer does nothing for my pores. I specifically want to try this Tarte foundation for the reason I stated but want to know your thoughts. Will this work?
