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

        I have been searching for new foundation that would stay and tame this oily skin. I lived in Texas which is very dry so I didn't have this problem of the oily skin and makeup not staying that great. We recently moved to Alabama and my skin was shiny within a few hours and my makeup didn't stay all day, so the search began for a matte all day wearing foundation. I tried a few different brands of CC because I do prefer a more natural smooth look for everyday. I went to Ulta and one of the girls suggested I try Tarte because it is made with clay and clay soaks oil. I tried it and love it! It gives me such a smooth airbrushed finish and stays ALL day while controling my shine (for the most part). I went back and got the concealer, Amazonian clay tinted pressed finishing powder, and the parkave princess palette (matte bronzer, blush, and highlight). I also got the tarte 101 discovery kit. I have worn the lip color in the kit and got so many compliments. Thank you Tarte for making great products that are high quality and not harmful!

          I've never bought the same foundation twice. All drugstore foundations are either too light or too dark for me, and finding something that stays on all day is hard.

          But THIS. OH MY GOSH. Full coverage with less than a pea sized ammount, blends really well, lasts all day, and it's natural!! I couldn't be happier with this foundation. Don't let the price tag scare you away; it's worth every penny!

            I am very fair skinned senior citizen who is trying to age gracefully. I use this product over a day moisturizer. Although it is a little pricey, a little goes a long way. It feels great on my skin and looks natural. It lasts all day and into the evening, no touchup needed.

                I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I will never buy anything else. I have acne prone, combination, skin with large pores and it keeps my skin looking flawless all day! It blends very well and the color matches perfectly. I have never had it cause a break out, if anything it soothes them while they heal. I like that it does not settle into my large pores and I think that mature skin would find that it doesn't settle into their wrinkles. I'm on my 3rd bottle, I would recommend this product to anyone. I combine it with Tarte's loose poweder amazonian clay foundation and I love it.

                        For best results, we recommend using the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

                        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!

                        Dispense a dime size amount of Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation to the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount using the Airbrush Finish Foundation Brush and sweep onto skin with a light circular motion starting at the center of the face and blending outward to achieve complexion perfection.

                        We love using Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush to apply Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15!

                        Any of Tarte's face primers perform beautifully layered beneath Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15. We especially love Timeless Smoothing Primer, which diminishes the look of fine lines and pores and provides a blurring, soft focus effect:

                        Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 features a satin-matte finish and is formulated for all skin types. It features a long wearing formula for up to 12 hours of wear. You may wish to use in conjunction with an oil control primer and/or finishing powder to ensure lasting wear and a matte finish. We suggest Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer and Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder.
