    Coverage is wonderful for my hyperpigmentation. It stays on all day long as well. I never look cakey or fake either, just looks like a beautiful complexion.

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

      This was suggested to me by an Ulta employee. I told her I had uneven skin tone on my face, and wanted medium to full coverage, but I didn't want to feel like I was wearing makeup and I didn't want to look like a birthday cake either (also didn't want it rubbing off on my boyfriend's shirt.) She directed me to this and advise I use the Pur Minerals foundation powder to set it. I am in love. It's the only foundation I've found that doesn't rub off or you can't see streaks of in the daylight.

          I was so excited for this product and was so disappointed once I tried it. It didn't have nearly the coverage I was looking for, it had a nice matte finish to it, but did not meet the needs that I had. I believe this is a good foundation but it just wasn't what I needed personally.

              I have been on the hunt for my perfect foundation for what seems like forever. I'm glad some of my friends and the girls at Ulta recommended me this product. Being blemish-prone and quite fair, it has been almost impossible for me to find something with high coverage, good color, good consistency, good ingredients, and a nice finish all in one product. Well, I've finally found it!

                  I was really excited to try this foundation. I had heard great things - full coverage, matte finish, etc.
                  I have oily skin. This kept my skin looking matte for about 45 minutes. It is NOT pretty when the oil starts to soak through the foundation. I was also expecting a lot more coverage than I got. My pores were seemingly even more pronounced.
                  Really sad about this one! I wasted a lot of money.
                  If you're oily, stay away.

                    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?

                    I also am in high school.

                    All help is appreciated.

                      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).

                      A:

                      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.
