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

      I have normal-ish skin. On my forehead I am prone to breakouts, on my chin and cheeks my skin does get really dry. The first thing I noticed about this foundation is that it feels SO nice. I usually apply my foundation with my finger tips, rubbing it slightly to warm it up. I put it on my face without any type of primer. You can feel that it is made from clay by the texture. It is really pretty lovely. I also applied it with a brush where it went on nicely but not as great. Warming this product up(Im guessing bc of the clay) really makes a difference in the blendability.

      The color of the light-medium beige is perfect for me. It is blend able to an extant it is definitely not light coverage. My darker freckles still show through with just the liquid foundation, but not with the coordinating powder(which I didn't care for anyways)

      I had never tried the Tarte brand before this and have always used Body Shop Brand Foundation. I'm sold on this type and probably will continue to purchase this as my foundation from now on.

          This gives a really good full coverage. I have oily skin and after a long day of wearing this, my skin wasn't nearly as oily compared to other foundations I've used. It's also easy to apply. A little goes a long way with this foundation as well

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

          I finally ordered this product and I must say it is my new favorite foundation. It says it full coverage but it's not; it's actually more of a medium to full buildable coverage. It blends well and is light weight. I have sensitive combination to acne prone kind of skin and it doesn't irritate it or cause breakouts. It keeps my T zone oiliness down for the most part and it lasts all day long. I literally have to take it off with makeup remover wipes because soap and water doesn't do the trick. It's a good product but it is on the kind of expensive side esp. if you're a nursing student like me but other than that I would recommend it to a friend and re-purchase it again.

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

            I love this product! I originally used Bare Minerals powder foundation but wanted to try a liquid foundation. I found this and fell in love. It reduces my oiliness immensely. The only problem I ever had was when I first was trying to find my tone, the employee who fitted me with the color chose one that was about 5-6 shades darker than I am. I pulled it off, but when I ran out, I retried the shades on and found that I am ivory compared to honey beige. All in all though a wonderful product and I would recommend it to anyone! Tarte products are my favorites
