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

    I have been using this foundation for a couple years now and I wouldn't dare switch to another! It is certainly not full coverage, light to medium, depending on how much product you apply. My biggest skin issues are large pores on my cheeks and a few dark spots from the occasional zit, so medium coverage suits me. I use round foundation brush to apply a light amount of the product all over my face, then I use a stippling brush to cover any blemishes or problem areas. It works great for me. I quite often wear this makeup for 12-14 hours and only need to powder once. For me it does not crease and does not settle into fine lines. I love it and would recommend to anyone!

        Disappointing. I would NOT describe this as full coverage. If anything it is light coverage...I could see everything through it. Feels chalky and looks powdery on the face. Left dry cakey patches around nose and mouth. Tried a second time a month later and looks the same. I may try mixing with another foundation so it doesn't go to waste.

          This foundation works incredibly. The coverage is fantastic and it stays on all day. It also has SPF and is great at controlling shine. I also find that the shade matches my skin PERFECTLY which can be hard to find at times with foundation. I use it with the translucent amazonian clay finishing powder for a flawless look. This is my all-time favorite foundation.

          Love this. Great full coverage matte finish. Creamy and great for sensitve skin, does not make you oily at the end of the day. Only complaint i have is not being able to use a beauty blender. You HAVE TO USE A BRUSH TO BLEND. Thicker consistency but blends out great and doesnt feel heavy.

                      • Q:

                        I'm looking into buying this foundation. I've heard it's full coverage. I want my make up to still look light and not over done, but I like to have a matte or powdery finish. Do you recommend using just this product, something on top, or do you have another product you think would work better? I want to have all day coverage, with little oil, but not look over done. The make up I use now comes off my nose half way through the day or whenever I touch it, which is very annoying.
