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

I apply this foundation with my airbrush IT foundation brush and I obtain a flawless coverage. I don't have to use a primer before the foundation since I moisturize my skin. The foundation lasts all day and my skin doesn't appear oily or shiny.

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

    I absolutely love how this foundation wears, and it lasts all day! But I found it extremely hard to apply. My Beauty Blender made the coverage a little sheer, and my foundation brush made it look streaky. I've started to mix it with other foundations and it's been a better result. Wish I would've known this before I purchased, but I will always be a die-hard Tarte fan.

            Hi, I've noticed a few references to a bamboo brush. Does that come with the foundation or is it separate? If it's separate, is there a link to it? Thanks!

              Thanks for reaching out! This foundation should be a great option for you! It offers great full coverage with a natural, satin-matte finish. It also fades the appearance of fine lines and other skin concerns. Hope that helps!

              A:

              Thanks for reaching out! Flashback can happen with some products infused with higher SPF sunscreen. This product is SPF 15 and contains non-chemical sunscreen filters so it does not cause flashback.

          • Q:

            I've been wanting to purchase a nice foundation for prom and wondering if this would be a good choice with pictures and longevity of it. I'm wondering if the foundation goes on with full coverage, doesn't look cakey or give off a white cast for pics, and if it'll last a while through dancing and what not. Thank you for your time!

            Hi I'm currently using the amazonian clay foundation and I just love it! Its long lasting and feels amazing on my combination skin. The shade I have is Tan-deep sand with yellow undertones. Which shade in the full coverage airbrush powder would you recommend? I would like it to be a shade lighter.

              Thanks for reaching out -- so happy you're loving our Amazonian clay foundation! I think you'll definitely enjoy our airbrush foundation as well, & if you're looking for a shade lighter, "tan sand" should work great for you. Enjoy it!

          • Q:

            Love this foundation! There are some spots that I would like to cover up more so I'm wondering if I should try the clay pressed finishing powder? But I also notice my face to be very oily by the end of the day. Does the pressed powder provide coverage and shine control? I don't want to spend a fortune on makeup!
