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

    I've tried many different foundations- from drugstore to high end- and have never been completely happy with the coverage from any of them. I have fair skin that's prone to redness and this hyper-pigmentation is very difficult to cover up. I find that even if a foundation claims that it has ingredients to counter balance redness, it doesn't work. I've always been a big fan of Tarte products but was a bit reluctant to try this product because of the price. However, after reading all of the glowing reviews, I decided to give it a try. I love this foundation because it's not created with parabens and other harmful ingredients. It's also very full coverage and does an amazing job at hiding redness. While it is a bit pricey, a little goes a long way and the coverage is easily blended to give you the amount that you want. I highly recommend this foundation and know that I've found the perfect one for my skin.

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

      I love Tarte products. This product has a thick consistency but it is very smooth. Took a while to get used to using it, more used to a liquid foundation, this is more cream like. The brush, which you must purchase separately, is a must. I tried using a different brush and it didn't blend as well. I start with dotting it all over my face, then stipple it around with the brush, then blend with soft circular sweeps. It is build able and a little goes a long way. I do set with powder, but I don't know if you really have to. Lasts all day.

        I went to Ulta to buy a good quality foundation, which I've never had before. The sales associate had to switch brands multiple times to find one light enough for me. I ended up with this. I've been using it for 2 months now and I have not had one breakout during this time (for the first time in my life). I always had acne and since using this have not. I will never buy another product! Highly recommend for anyone with sensitive, acne prone skin.

        Most amazing foundation ever! I have terrible acne scarring and current breakouts, and this foundation does cover them. Makes me feel more confident! I do set I with a powder otherwise it gets a tad bit oily, I use this foundation everyday. Worth the money!!!

              Not for dry skin :(

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

              I really do love this foundation. It covers fully and gives a beautiful matte finish. I will definitely be buying again come this spring/summer. The only problem I have, is I live on the coast of Maine and the winter months are super harsh on skin. This does not hydrate my skin and accentuated the dry patches on my skin and makes me look older. :( But I will definitely will be purchasing come warmer spring and summer months!

              • Q:

                I have super dry skin which is flaky a lot of the time, all the foundations I've used exaggerate the flakes even when applying them with a damp sponge as recommended to keep the flakes down. I'm really interested in buying this product but I've heard mixed reviews about it being good for dry skin, will this foundation stick to my flakes instead of going over them?

                  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:

                • Staff Reviewer

                  A:

                  The main difference is that this foundation features a liquid formula, while Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation features a loose powder formula. Both feature formulas that offer benefits to the skin, as well as full, long lasting coverage. We recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA store to determine which you prefer:
