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

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.

            This is my new favorite foundation. I live in the Pacific Northwest and even in the summer, I'm as pale as they come. Amazingly enough, this foundation matches. The coverage IS SO INCREDIBLE. So much so, that I actually mix it with a BB cream to make it a little more creamy. Overall, amazing. I'll definitely be buying it again.

                My skin has cystic acne, and I have tried multiple products for my face. I always just used powder, the Ulta rep. told me to try foundation. I was a bit hesitant but I was willing to try. It was the best decision, the coverage is great and it does not make me breakout. Best thing ever for acne prone skin like mine.
                So recommend it.

                    This is not a full coverage foundation at all. I'd say sheer to medium coverage, medium if you build a lot. I have BB and CC creams that have more coverage than this does. So disappointing! Maybe the consistency would be good for the cold, dry winter months but honestly it was a waste of money for me because I was looking for a new full coverage and this is not full coverage. I'm going back to MUFE.

                      Hi
                      I have light/medium skin, medium to dark brown his with red highlights, hazel eyes. I also have freckles all over and I do NOT want to cover them all up (I like them). But I want to even up my skin undertone and cover some of the rugged red tones. Any suggestions?

                        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

                        This foundation is dermatologist tested and should not cause breakouts or irritation.
