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

    My go to foundation, it is pricy but so worth it. The finish doesnt even compare to drugstore brands. I apply it with the beauty blender (ulta's version) and it goes on beautifully. I have very fair skin, yet fair never seems to look right on me, Tarte is amazing about giving a wide range of colors so you can find the one that will match you exactly.

      I let one of the girls in the store try this out on me and I have been hooked ever since! My skin is oily an prone to break outs so it isn't the easiest task in the world to find a foundation that gives good coverage but doesn't turn my pores into war zones and this one took on the challenge and knocked it out of the park!

              I am so bummed. It was easy to apply but the coverage was terrible. For the price I want to look flawless and it barely made it up to drugstore foundation coverage. It sat in my pores and highlighted them and left gold and dry patches. I really wanted this to work. I tried everything from primer to no primer, moisturizers, no moisturizer, different primers, different brushes.... It just doesn't do it .it gets worse too as you build it. Very disappointed.

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

              I love, love, love this foundation. The coverage is absolutely incredible. I rarely, if ever, have to use concealer anymore. I used to have to do color corrector, then my foundation, then concealer, then powder and MORE concealer. With this I just do the color correcter, and a lot less than before, then the foundation. It works fabulously! The formula is a bit thick so if you are used to applying your foundation with your hands, you will want to invest in a good brush. It is a heavy foundation, but it does not feel heavy on my face. It's hard to explain... But I don't even need a finishing powder after applying, except on my forehead and chin. This is an amazing foundation and I don't think I will ever change to something else. And it may be in my head, but I swear it's actually helping to heal my hormonal acne on my chin... I love, love, love it!

                  This product does not include a brush. We recommend using Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952) for a flawless application.

              • Q:

                I previously purchased this foundation in "fair." The product box said fair, as well as the black printed text on the tube itself. Looking at the ULTA website as well as other sources, I don't see a "fair" option for this foundation. Is there a comparable shade I can use? I don't want to purchase the wrong thing and have it not match my skin. Is there some other marking on the tube I should be seeing besides the black text that says fair?

                  Tarte does not claim that this product is non-comedogenic (it may not have been tested for comedogenicity). This product is dermatologist-tested and formulated without mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, or gluten.

                  Yes, this product is formulated for all skin types including dry skin! For dry skin, we recommend applying a moisturizer & primer or BB cream prior to foundation application to create a smooth canvas. Try Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:
