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

I love this foundation! However, if you are not using face cream or your skin is not fully hydrated I would use a primer, without one the foundation emphasizes blemishes and wrinkles. I would recommend this foundation but again, primer is a must. I have used it without and it definitely ages your appearance. Another thing I would say is make sure you get color matched at the store, because it is so thick, wearing the wrong shade can't be hidden with powder.
Otherwise good foundation!

    Tarte amazonian clay foundation is perfect for so many skin types. The color palette is great as you move through the seasons and your skins color adjusts. I use 2 shades throughout the year. Blends great. Easy to apply with brush or sponge.

        I use this foundation mostly with a foundation brush from morphe. Using a beauty blender sheer the full coverage away from the foundation. It's the best for oily skin! Leaves the best matte finish.

          I use this as my everyday foundation and it is my all time favorite. I've tried so many foundations and I always come back to this one. My skin is naturally pretty red and dry and this covers it up very nicely and also doesn't make my skin look flaky at all I use the shade light sand.

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

            This foundation truly looks very bad when applied to [my] skin. I breaks apart very easy, and leaves the skin looking patchy. Not to mention, the shades for very light, fair, pale people like me don't even have a chance to get a matching shade.

                  This foundation does oxidize however, the flashback depends on the shade picked and what powder was used to set it. I would suggest going into the store to find your perfect match!
