tarte Amazonian Clay Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15 w/Brush
i hve used this for over 2 yrs. i've tried others and come back. it covers well. if you put a small amount on the back of your hand and use your brush to put this on and blend it in.it's perfect. if you think it is too thick, you are using to much. just like anything else it takes practice, when you get the right amount you'll love it.
I found this foundation to be very thick, and hard to blend. I gave it to my daughter to try, and she said the same thing. Bad purchase, and I kept too long to return.
All I can say is for the first time in quite some time, I'm poreless! I'm not usually impressed but this foundation really is amazing. I'm 64 and have good skin but I do have some noticeable pores. This foundation is like having new skin. It's not heavy or greasy in any way. I chose medium which is more like a rich medium....good for summer. I may purchase the light for winter. I'm hooked.
Love this foundation
This is the first foundation that I have ever used (regardless of how much or how little I paid for them) that lasts all day. Word of caution, start out using this sparingly. If you use too much, it can look too heavy. It isn't necessary to use a lot to get full coverage that lasts all day. Unlike other customers, I am not so impressed with using the brush to apply this, although, it is a fabulous brush. I put a little on the back of my hand and then use a sponge to apply it to my face. Perfect!
I really love this foundation. I have tried many different foundations for oily skin and this one does what it says. It has amazing coverage especially for acne scars and blemishes. It stays on all day and the brush makes for easy application. I highly recommend this foundation for all women who need that extra coverage. The only problem I have with the foundation is that the colors have changed here on QVC. The Tan color is not the same as when I first ordered 2 years ago. I would love to see QVC offer more colors that are available in department stores. QVC offers such a great value on this product when you buy it with the amazing brush on easy pay. You can not go wrong.
This gets 5 stars for the finish and feel of the foundation. It feels great on and I don't feel or look like it's sitting on top of my skin or settling into lines. The only thing is I ordered a medium and got medium honey which I didn't know was even offered. Luckily for me it's a good match but I guess it could've easily not have been a match so I am glad it was..the brush is Very Nice..good deal.
I love the product of Taarte
I love their product but this one just not for me. couldn't cove my redness. Returned but I will try Tarte another product.
Moderate to Full Coverage
This is a really good moderate to full coverage foundation. It did not cake up or look blotchy. It was very smooth in texture and glided on my face with ease. The brush is better than the brush that comes with the Foundcealer because the bristles are softer. This foundation did not completely cover the redness from my cheeks (this is no problem with a full coverage foundation), and as usual I had to use a separate concealer for my dark circles. Tarte's Foundcealer covers much better--the only problem is that QVC is the only place that sells the Foundcealer. Tarte should consider offering the Foundcealer on their website, in ULTA stores, in Sephora stores, and other locations. I realize that Tarte has to make a deal with QVC to make certain items exclusive to them, but it really isn't fair to the customers who are not able to shop QVC.
I've tried many high end foundations as well as drug store. This by far is the best yet!! Applies easily,full coverage,and helps control my oil. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE!!!!!
Light Hand Does The Trick!
When I say that I have the world's oiliest skin, trust me, I am not lying! I have searched for MANY MANY years for skin care, with no luck on that front, and foundation that would not literally slide/melt off my face within an hour . . .I have found it with the Amazonian Clay Foundation. I will say that the first time I used it about 2 weeks ago, I was HIGHLY disappointed - it was literally like mud on my face and looked like a ridiculous pale mask! I was almost in tears as I had to wash my face again and start over with my much less reliable "top selling mineral foundation". Later that evening, I went back and watched the presentation video multiple times and I noticed something that wasn't completely obvious at first with the model applying the foundation herself - she was using a VERY light hand to do so. It couldn't be that simple, could it? YES! IT IS! The application with the brush and tube is kind of odd, so I put some foundation on the back of my hand, dabbed the brush in it and with the a very light hand, applied the foundation in a circular motion and it was PERFECT! No streaks - no MUD - no flaws - no weight! Within 2 minutes, my entire face was absolutely perfect! I was shocked that a foundation could look that good with that light of hand and the most minimal of blending! My face felt like velvet and was 100% matte!!! With the application down, I only had to worry about how long it would last. After an 8 hour work day, the world's oiliest skin only had to put the lightest of dusting of powder around 12:30 pm after being on my face since 5:30 am, after a 10 second blot!!!! YES YES YES!!!!!! A foundation that works on oily skin and does not make the oil worse or slide right off my face! And this was on a ridiculously humid, 90+ degree day in Southwestern Pennsylvania! I would HIGHLY recommend this foundation for anyone who suffers as I do with over the top oily skin, and if you apply with a very light hand in circular motions, you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!!!!!!! Bye Bye "top selling mineral makeup"! Oh, and one last point - in addition to the oil slicks I suffer with, I am also pathetically fair skinned and the FAIR shade with yellow undertone is phenomenal! It matched my skin to a tee!
I loved this foundation!! I have very fair skin with lots of freckles that I do my best to cover up when wearing foundation - but I hate feeling that I have a lot of product on my face. this gives a weightless feel and looks very natural.
- Although I do have to re-apply a couple of times a day.
I feel flawless after I apply it.
I really liked the application brush for an all-over blend, but I did have to use another one of my brushes afterwards to apply more thoroughly.
I have searching for a long time for a foundation that you can adjust the coverage. This is easy to apply another plus.
