Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Finishing Powder is a talc-free, vegan tinted pressed powder formulated with antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E that sets makeup and helps control shine, keeping skin hydrated and matte.

What the product does:
Keeps skin hydrated, matte, and beautifully balanced. Silky, featherlight powder can be worn solo as a sheer complexion corrector or on top of other makeup, and is formulated with Amazonian clay and antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.

What else you need to know (eg. skinvigorating ingredients):
  • Amazonian clay: nature's most perfect ingredient for better, longer, truer wear
  • Vitamin A: antioxidant that retains moisture and helps protect against free radical damage
  • Vitamin C: antioxidant free radical fighter that helps prevent premature signs of aging, while brightening skin
  • Vitamin E: natural preservative that also acts as an emollient and antioxidant
  • Mineral pigments: soothe and soften skin
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Vegan
Can be worn alone for sheer-light coverage, or over your liquid foundation to mattify with enhanced coverage.

Use included sponge for on-the-go touch-ups or the Powder Player Pressed Powder Brush for buildable applications.

                    I have used Bare Minerals for a while now but haven't been happy with it lately. I'm 47 and my skin is not what it used to be! This makeup makes me look younger and refreshed! I have very oily skin and bad rosacea on my cheeks. It stays on all day and covers the redness very well. I would say it's probably the best foundation I've ever used!

                      • Q:

                        I don't have any Ulta stores near me so I cannot try the shades to find the right one. I normally get a medium beige or medium tan foundation and powders. I have olive tan skin but not dark tan. The next shade up from "light" looks too dark. Is it lighter in person or the way it goes on? I'm afraid the light will be too light but the next shade will be too dark. What would you recommend I try and if it is not the right shade can I return it?

                        I wear your amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in light beige. LOVE IT! It provides amazing coverage but it doesn't appear you're wearing foundation. Looking for a pressed powder for touch ups (oily skin!) during the day. What color would I choose (without going over to the store?). I'm thinking the "light"?
