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

I don't have bad things to say about this foundation but I also don't have a lot of good things to say. I like the color range and options. It made very easy for me to find my color and the color matched pretty well. But I was expecting more from this foundation. I don't think this is full coverage. It's more for a medium coverage. And while it lasted a lot of hours, my face got oily pretty fast. I will be using this because it doesn't gave me a breakout and because it's safe for sensitive skin. Also I liked the fact that it doesn't cracked/creased on my face.

    Great price! I used my last tube for a year. Worth every penny. After application, it oxidized to a more orange pigment.

    NOT full coverage

    By Makeupmademedoit

    from San Diego

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

    The texture and finish on this is very nice. Tarte foundations always seem to oxidize on my skin, but this wasn't terrible. The whipped texture was very smooth and silky. BUT, this is nowhere near full coverage. It's barely a medium coverage. I don't have a lot of discoloration on my face but the few dark acne scars I have easily show through, even after double layering. I did try it another time with color correction and concealer which did work. But honestly, I can do that with almost any other foundation for a lot less money. Bought this hoping for a decent coverage without all that extra work. Will prob be returning.

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

      I love the color match, but this does not stay matte all day. It usually stays matte for the first hour and after that I'm usually checking my face to blotch the oil away... I love this foundation and I am very picky with foundations and as far of the oil I'll keep using it and can deal with it.

        with my oily skin and desire for full coverage foundation, it can be tricky to find one that will provide full coverage all day long, but this one does just that! I never have to re-apply powder, or wipe off oily, which is really rare for me. I looove the quality of this foundation, it's an oily girls best friend!!

            So this foundation was very smooth when applied. But it felt like I had to apply more than usual to cover everything. I got it at a great price tho!

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

            i am a huge fan of tarte And had been using their shape tape matte foundation for awhile in fair neutral but that one is harder to blend and oxidizes on my face pretty bad . I picked this up yesterday after seeing they actually have a shade light enough for me now (fair beige ). This foundation BLENDS LIKE A DREAM and it's very thick so you don't need a lot to cover , I have very red/pink cheeks and this covered my whole face with a small amount and as I said blended out so easily ! Also this one did not oxidize it stayed true to color on me, this foundation is a 10/10!!!!
