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

    The only complaint I have of this foundation is that it is too dry right out of the tube. An ULTA associate recommended a drop of the Tarte facial oil In The palm with a squirt then blending to apply. This worked wel but the oil was pricey and went bad before I finished the bottle. I now use the BODY SHOP oils of life facial oil (1/2 drop will do) and the foundation goes on flawlessly, lasts all day without making my skin feel oily. I have tried dozens of foundations and this one is the best value and best coverage for my youth fully oil but now aging (57) and drier skin. I keep coming back to TARTE.

      This foundation is very lightweight. Right out of the bottle is light and fluffy! It blends evenly and I don't feel it getting super greasy around my oily areas in the afternoon. It's very much worth the money over drug store brands. A little goes a long way.

        I have used this foundation for over six years. It is the best!!! While it may cost a lot, I spend five months through one tube. I would spend at least 12 to 15 dollars a month using an over the counter foundation, i.e. Covergirl or Maybelline. I always wet a non latex sponge to apply. It blends perfectly. Therefore, it is never too thick or cakey. I use medium tan honey. I can go to sleep in this foundation and know that my skin is safe.

          Unfortunately this foundation accentuates every flaw in my skin. I honestly look better before putting it on. Drys down tacky at first and powders do not blend well on top. I have some very miner break outs on my skin and this foundation makes them much more noticeable. Seems like this foundation is only good if you naturally have perfect skin.

            I was deciding between this foundation and the Tarte shape tape foundation, and since this one had better reviews I went with it and was not disappointed!! It goes on so easily, makes my face look flawless and lasts all day long. I even took a nap one day and woke up with my foundation still looking good. It also makes my skin feel amazing. When I wash my face it feels softer after using this. This will be my new go to foundation!

              I loved how this looked on me when I had my makeover in store. I would like to try contouring with this and the darker pigment that was next in line to it. Both looked great, but I had initially wanted to cover up my dark spots. Now, I'd like to go for a more natural look.

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

              I love this foundation! I have combination skin and struggle to find a foundation that stays on all day long without caking/fading around my nose. This foundation not only provides coverage, but it also lasts for several hours without caking or fading. I set it with the Amazonian Clay loose powder foundation and the combination of both products together works really well for my skin. The foundation is full coverage but doesn't look cakey, it actually looks very natural. I've received several compliments on how great my makeup looks while wearing this foundation. I will definitely purchase again!

              Great coverage, it really is 12 hour coverage. Thick formula, but spreads nice. Looks so natural, too. Definitely one of my favorites and one I'll always have on hand.

                I am wearing the Fair light honey but feel like it could be a tad darker. I don't understand the undertone colors. Yellow, pink or peach? What loose powder would you recommend and color?

                  A:

                  Here is a good rule of thumb for our shades:
                  Beige = rosy undertones
                  Sand = Golden undertones
                  Neutral = both rosy and golden undertones
                  Honey = peachy undertones

                  Based on the current shade you wear we would recommend the shade Light Neutral in our Amazonian Clay Foundation and the Smooth Operator Setting Powder! However it is always best if you can pop into your local Ulta Beauty to get professionally shade matched!

              • Q:

                I have very oily skin, my nose is covered with small blackheads, and my acne wants to start a riot on my face. I've tried many drugstore foundations and only two high-end foundations and only one of them worked but I want to see what is out their and see what will work for me since my face is oily, acne prone, and sensitive around the eyes. I've used Revlon foundation and makes my eyes burn right after I take it off with chemical wipes. So I changed the makeup wipes back to the ones I love using because they are chemical free! And I was wondering if this will be a good fit for my skin type. Thanks!

                  We highly suggest getting a sample from Ulta and testing this on your skin before purchasing. Everyone's skin reacts differently so what might work for someone else oily skin, might not work best for you.

                Can you recommend a good moisturizer to use before applying this foundation? My skin is dry/combination and my current moisturizer (Botanics hydration burst day cream) tends to pill once I apply this foundation. I let my moisturizer dry and make sure it's fully absorbed before applying so I'm not really sure what type of moisturizer to use or what ingredients to avoid when looking for a moisturizer to wear under this foundation.
