Great Coverage

By Doll Face

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

This used to be my holy grail foundation when my acne was really bad. Now that my skin is clearer I find it can look a little too cakey especially as the day goes on. However you are looking for a full coverage flawless look and have some imperfections to cover this would be for you.

    I used Bare Minerals for years and really needed a change but didn't want a heavy makeup. This makeup is even lighter than powder. I feel like I have no makeup on! The texture of the foundation is so creamy and light! Love, love, love for my dry skin!

              I bought this product because I like tartes powder foundation so I figured I would like there liquid as well. Unfortunately I don't like it at all, in fact it made me so itchy and my whole face red - maybe I'm allergic. But besides that, it didn't blend in well either, it looks too chalky or something? That's the best way to put it. I think it's because it's also a sunblock.

                        I bought this about a week ago.. I was using the powder prior to trying out the liquid. I'm still trying to find that one hack to this foundation. It has amazing coverage but it looks flat on my face... Like the tones just don't come out like they did with the powder. I'm gonna try mixing it with another shade. I love the fact that it'll stay on literally ALL day! Overall I'm happy with the product & I'll continue to use it. :)

                        I decided to try this after having been a long term user of Smashbox's BB Cream because I was looking for something with a little more coverage. After trying this, I will never go back. I tested colors in store and was very happy to find that there was a color pale enough for me (fairly light beige), because that's an issue with a lot of face products for me. I feel like this product does a really good job of evening out skin tone and staying matte throughout the day, even without a powder on top. I also really appreciate the amount of product (for the same price, Smashbox was 1.0oz and this is 1.7oz), and a little goes a long way. Even though it's a bit expensive, I think it will last me a while. Definitely would buy again!

                          It took me awhile to love this product. It depends on the primer you use. I tried smashbox and didn't like it. I find it works perfectly with Laura mercier primer!

                                Though you can certainly use a liquid foundation brush from a different brand to apply & blend; brushes with firm, dense bristles work best for full, flawless coverage!
