tarte Amazonian Clay Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15 w/Brush
Best foundation Ever
I am in my 60s and have tried any and every kind of foundation over the years. In addition, I have become allergic to most makeup/perfume. I have been using this foundation for several months, and it is the best ever. I apply it in a circular motion with the big fat brush, only have to use very small amount. It covers red spider veins, uneven skin texture, yet looks completely natural. My skin has never looked this good and, best of all, no allergic reaction (like runny or stinging eyes) at all. My only reservation is washing the brush and hoping the bristles don't eventually fall out!
Great for Oily/Acne Prone Skin!
I have been using this foundation for about 6 months now. I have oily, acne prone skin, and this foundation is so great! It covers well, and doesn't make me breakout additionally. The texture is so smooth and creamy going on, and that BRUSH IS AMAZING!!!
I just dabbed a little on different areas of my face and WOW!. Completely covers and I did not use but just a little. Will be ordering more. Recommend to anyone.
I love this foundation. Perfect coverage. I'll keep buying it. I bought med. It's perfect for me. I'm not lily white or real tanned.
I thought that I really loved this product. After wearing it for several years and treating with a dermatologist I discovered that I am allergic to this product. Cost me alot of money in medical bills. Beware
Another Tarte gem!
Excellent foundation! Great coverage and so easy to apply. I prefer using the brush.
Great lasting properties.
I love Tarte products!
I have to say that this is the best foundation I have ever used. I received the product three days ago and I am so glad that I ordered it. I have been using high- end foundation since I started wearing makeup. I have liked the coverage on my previous but nothing oustanding. This foundation makes my face glow. It blends great and does not leave your face dry. I have combination skin and I feel like the foundation adapts to the skin. My cheeks do not feel dry and my t- zone does not feel oily. I would definately recommend this product. The brush is also great.
Not great, but LOVE the brush
I purchased this and the BB cream at the same time and was so excited to try them out when they arrived. Needless to say, it was a let down. The color on this is good, it feels good on, and is smooth. My problem with it is that it starts to crease by mid-morning and I do not have oily skin. I've tried it without the BB cream thinking it may be the culprit, but still the same problem. This foundation is far too expensive to have to touch it up 2-3 times a day. But the good news is, the brush is fabulous. The brush was worth the price, so I didn't send it all back. I will keep using the foundation until it's gone, but won't purchase it again.
Love Love Love Love...LOVE
This foundation is amazing! I love their other foundation that comes in the glass pump bottle, so I thought I'd try this one out. It's AMAZING. It's definitely full coverage, but not cakey at all. I love that it's wearable for everyday, but it's also build-able and works great for a night out. And the BRUSH! I can't say enough good things about the brush. I have had many great foundation brushes, but this one definitely tops them all. It's so soft, yet dense enough to compliment the full coverage foundation.
Did Not Cover All; Not for Pink-Based Skin Tones
On paper, this foundation sounded awesome to me. I have very fair skin with some sun damage on my left side (thank you, car windows) and some light discolorations (freckling, slight darkening on the tops of my cheeks). What I found is that it does not cover these flaws--- not even with repeated applications and/or applying by hand. I thought a foundation touted as being so high-coverage would have no problem with these issues, but I didn't get enough coverage. I do think the brush is an awesome applicator but I wouldn't describe the effect as airbrushed. Also, the foundation is very much yellow-based; I had read this in other reviews but I guess I didn't realize how pink-based I am, so it essentially makes my face look kind of dirty. As a sideline note, I always, always buy the lightest color of foundation available but I did buy "Light" in this one based on the reviews. I would imagine the lighter shade ("Fair") is practically white. I am returning based on the lack of coverage and the slightly "dirty face" effect. If you have yellow-based skin tones and no visible flaws, this probably would work great.
This is the best foundation formulation for my combo skin. But, the key is the application with the brush in order to get the airbrush look. I tried using a makeup sponge, but did not get the same results. This foundation lasts and it has great coverage.
This is a great foundation. The coverage is smooth, the color is beautiful and forgiving, it blends very well. I have received compliments that my skin is sooooo smooth. The brush that comes with it is the best. I bought the foundation along with the Tarte concealer and love them both.
