        I love this foundation! I was looking for something with full coverage because my face is red in some areas. This works wonders. Not only does it cover it but it stays on all day! I can sweat and it doesn't go anywhere! I really love this product! I just love tarte products in general!

          I have pretty oily skin and I think this product works well as long as I set it with a translucent powder. It leaves my skin feeling nice - not too heavy, but good coverage. I do wish they had a larger shade range!

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

          This is my new go-to everyday foundation! For a liquid foundation, it's consistency is more akin to a mousse, but it lays on the face so lightly it's like wearing nothing at all! There are so many shades, all with specific undertones, so you're guaranteed to find your perfect match.

          I would call it a medium/full coverage as opposed to simply full, but it is definitely buildable if you're looking for completely full coverage. As a sufferer of oily skin, this foundation has been a god-send. I used to go through countless blotting sheets daily, and with this foundation on my face I don't have to do a quick touch up even once. It keeps me matte and, because of it's all natural ingredients, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. You should note that it is really too thick to use with a beauty blender, but works perfectly with a flat top foundation brush.

          The only true draw back is the price. At $38 a pop it is not cheap, though you do get nearly double the amount of product, 1.7 oz, as opposed to the typical 1oz given by other companies.

          This product is amazing, I loved how long it lasted, and how well it kept my other face makeup in place. One thing, is that I have dry patched on my nose and chin, it really showed them off. I would not recommend this for someone who has dry skin, or someone who has combo skin like myself. But it is really an amazing product.

                        A:

                        This foundation provides full coverage, so if you'd like your freckles to shine through, we'd recommend choosing a lighter coverage product such as Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2430045

                        BB Tinted Moisturizer will help to even out your complexion but will allow your freckles to show; it provides very natural looking coverage!

                        For your skin tone, we suggest shade Light-Medium (Item #:2220116).

                        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:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4380103
