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

    I have searched and searched for make up with full coverage that actually covers. I never had acne as a child but now at 43 I have had acne most of my adult life so I try to find make up that doesn't make it worse and has good coverage. Tarte is perfect for that. I have only found one other that does better and they no longer make it so I was thrilled to find this.

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

      I usually don't like to spend alot on makeup but after so many failures I decided to go up. I have combination, acne prone skin. This stuff lasts all day and doesn't look too matte. It does leave a bit of a dewy look, but it's very minimal. Enough to look natural. It doesn't break out my skin, it doesn't feel heavy on my face and the color matches great. In bright fluorescent light it looks a little darker than my chest (but not orange)but in natural and normal lighting it looks perfect. I don't even have to use powder. This is a bit pricey but so worth it. Plus, the bottle lasts a long time since you don't need to use so much. Coverage is also buildable.

        This is a great foundation. Full coverage but still light weight! The formula is perfect it feels just like clay! I apply the foundation with a damped beauty sponge, my makeup looks smooth all day! I wear makeup up to 14 hours straight and i do NOT need to touch up. I do see my nose oily after the 6th hour, but no big deal. I LOVE this foundation! Does NOT break me out either

              After swallowing down the price (first "normal" makeup buy) and buying the product, I am so happy that I did! Not only does it work amazing but it actually improved my skin, which has been somewhat problematic lately because it's so dry and red. This will be my go to foundation for a long time I'm feeling.

              I was recommended this product by an employee at ULTA because I have oily skin in my T zone and foundation never stays matte while i'm at work or at school for a long time. I was so in love with this foundation when I first started using it but then I noticed I was breaking out a lot. I didn't think that my foundation was causing it but once I stopped using it for a couple days, I noticed I haven't had any new break outs and when I started using it again I had many new ones. Throughout the day, the foundation didn't stay matte either. I don't ever see myself buying this again.

                I love this product! I have oily skin and some dark acne spots from the occasional acne breakout; this foundation really covers up those dark marks.

                This foundation doesn't oxidize (or turn orange) on my face and it stays on all day. The foundation has full coverage, but it doesn't have that thick, caked-on appearance when applied. It really evens out my skin tone.

                I love this product, and a little goes a long way. I would recommend buying the buffing brush along with the foundation. My only complaint is that even though they offer both pink undertone and yellow undertone options, the pink one is still a little too yellow.

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

                First off, this is the only brand of liquid foundation that was able to *exactly* match my skin tone. I'm medium with a touch of yellow undertone, but the medium-yellow foundations from every other brand I've tried make me look like I'm wearing yellow paint. I usually have to opt for a medium neutral, if I can find it. Tarte definitely gets points for great color selection. I am also thrilled by the fact that this product has a natural sunblock in it. The foundation is velvety going on, doesn't break me out, and is the first foundation that legitimately gave me that "airbrushed" look. The coverage is highly buildable, and when set the makeup lasts ~8 hours. When first applied it may look a little dry, but once your natural oils have a chance to blend with the makeup it looks gorgeous.

                That said, I feel like I was still pretty oily looking by the afternoon despite the purported oil control properties of Amazonian clay. This stuff doesn't control oil nearly as well as a mineral powder foundation, and the makeup started to look runny around my nose, forehead, and smile lines. My face starts to feel "heavy" by the end of the day. Blotting helps, but given the price I am no longer inclined to use this for everyday wear. Using it with a matte primer will help some, but in general I now save this foundation for going out at night (when I want to look amazing for only a few hours).
