    Usually I've been keeping myself from buying luxury high end makeup because I can't really afford it but I've tried this foundation once and I love it, so I bought it and I've used it a few times and I love it. It doesn't move doesn't break apart like with other foundations I've tried, and I will be buying it again.

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

    I chose this product because it was supposed to be good for my combination/ oily skin (oily T zone). I always prime before I put foundation on. But for some reason this would almost burn my cheeks and forehead for a few moments after putting it on. My skin can be sensitive, so maybe that played a roll. Aside from that, it would wear off quickly and the coverage wasn't the greatest (I have texturing and spotting from acne). Like I would apply it in the morning and by the time I got home that night it had almost gone transparent. But I did stay matte. I usually use Clinique's beyond perfecting and I think I will stick with it. But if needed I would buy this again. I did not get oily, and the oily parts of my face the coverage was good. But the dryer parts were where it wore off or flakes. Blended good with a brush applicator. Over all I would give it like 3.5/4 stars.

      This is one of my favorite full coverage foundations! And it really is FULL coverage!! There is a huge range of shades also which is nice! And tarte has a good rep for having good ingredients so it doesn't break you out! Also, for being full coverage it doesn't feel heavy once it's on and dry. I think it applies best with a damp sponge

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

      I purchased this for my 15 yr. old daughter. She has acne prone skin but not excessive. She loves it!
      It provides her coverage without being a "mask" and she says a little goes a long way. We love the extensive colors, so she can always find a match with her changing skin tone. She has olive skin that gets very tan in the summer and she is fair in the winter...she changes foundation color about three times.

      My only issue is that it is fairly expensive. I can't see a teenager or even a college student buying this on her own.

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

            I got to try this product at my local Ulta's Tarte event recently. I was very impressed by how well it matched my complexion, especially because I'm so fair. It's lightweight, but also buildable, making it so that my freckles show through, but blemishes are hidden. I've worn it to work every day this week and have found it to last the entire day with no issues. I'm a huge fan.

            When I first started using this foundation, I loved it but, over time I noticed it continuously made my dry skin worse and it definitely shows your dry patches. If you have oily skin I would definitely give this a try because it is a great foundation with great coverage it just didn't work for me.

              • Q:

                I was matched as a medium neutral in this foundation, however now I have been getting some sun and it's too light for me. There is no "medium-tan neutral", so what color would you suggest I go with next? I don't really want to make another trip back to the store to be matched again.

                  Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match.
