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 really like this powder. I've tried so many brands, but is by far the best. My face doesn't look like it's covered in powder...just a nice finish.

            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 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"?

                  We would recommend the shade Light! However it's always best if you can pop into your local Ulta Beauty to swatch it before you buy!

                  You can use the shade medium in the setting powder! The setting powder or the creamy powder compact would work.
