tarte Amazonian Clay Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15 w/Brush
for a person of color this was way too yellow. However I was able to make it work by putting it with a more red based sheer powder to take down some of the yellow. If I hadn't had that powder I prolly would have sent it back. Coverage is good but not the best, although it is buildable. It stayed on all day for me and I'm oily.. I had to blot one or two times tho. It's not as much coverage as KatVD foundation but its ok. The brush is the best part of this duo. It blends super well and I even use it with pressed powder for more coverage when I need it. Made me break out a bit also, but any new product does....
This is a huge tube so if you can get your exact match I say go for it, if you have more neutral undertones, I say pass.....it comes of really yellow-y
Excellent product and value!!
Tried this foundation for the first and was vey happy with its performance. I was impressed with its coverage even with only having to use a very little amount and because of that I feel the value will be worth cost. Definitely going to be back for more and other items in the line.
I have LOVED all of the Tarte products I have purchased & I was so excited to get this Amazonian Clay Foundation, but when I received it, it was NOT the color I ordered. I ordered Tan, but when I received it the shade was Tan Honey? Why? Tarte has had the color Tan in all of the products I have bought and it is a perfect shade for my skin tone. It's also listed in the QVC color chart as Tan, they have not changed the color name. If they are not going to make Tan anymore, it will be a shame. I will have to find another brand. So bummed because I was falling in love with Tarte :(
BROKE ME OUT :(
I was so excited to be trying a less chemical full-coverage foundation. I loved how it felt so silky and creamy while putting it on. It had some sun protection as well. I was sold. UNTIL, it broke me out horrendously. I did not have so many pimples at one time for decades...I would get here and there occasionally, but not, about 10-12 at one time and this is the only new product I have been using for the past week.
I checked the ingredients again and found out why it felt so silky to the touch if you are using your fingers to put it on. It is full of silicones..(Dimethicone, Cyclopexone (sp?) and other "glycleryl...." stuff... which are known to clog pores..
I am glad and sorry to say jealous for those who did not break out from this foundation.. I mean, my cheeks, jaw line, forehead.. they have it all.
Good but not the best
I am a you-tube makeup guru and have tried endless number of foundations. This foundation does not even compare to my Revlon color stay. This foundation is NOT full coverage and looks so bad on dry spots. Yes it feel good on the skin, light weight feeling and the ingredients are also good for the skin. I don't fell like it has amazing lasting power and over all i was disappointed. As expensive as it is i had high expectations. Now on me personal i don't like and would never repurchase, but i do recommend it to someone that has good skin and does not need that much coverage .and for someone that is not oily., because Like i said it does feel good on the skin. For kn9ow i will stick to my Revlon color stay.
Pretty good foundation
I had tried this foundation about a year ago in the medium shade before they had introduced the light-medium. Back then I really didn't like it because the shade was not right for me so I returned it. However, I tried it again when I saw the presentation of the new light-medium. The shade is much closer to my color, actually it might be a slight too light. I will keep this one. It will work for the winter months when I don't get sun. I have acne and acne marks with some mild redness, and this does a good job covering all that up. Only a few spots do I have to cover with a separate concealer. It doesn't make me oily, either. I really like this company and the fact that they use no chemicals!
Good product, just not for me
Love Tarte cosmetics, an I think this is a good product. It blends flawlessly and the brush is SOOOOOO soft and lush. Great coverage. A little does go a long way.
The color was just not for me. I am a dark skinned african American lady but this product had more "yellow" which made my skin look dry. Hate to send back
Love It !!
I have been using Tarte for the past 6 months and love the feel, coverage. This is the first for this product. I had a T line in my forehead and have noticed it has almost completely faded away. It is so light and smooth to the touch. Applications is so quick. Will definitely will buy again.
Great coverage. Really nice product. Brush is so dense and soft.
didn't like it
light was too yellow for me. was also kind of sparkly looking.
Try the Rest, but THIS is the Best!
I have recently placed my reorder for Tarte's Amazonian Clay Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15 w/brush. I was sold on my first application of this wonderful full-coverage product. 1) It DOES cover fully, and especially any sun related spots; 2) It DOES give me an air brushed appearance that looks and feels so smooth ; 3) There is NO perfumed fragrance....thank goodness; 4) The accompanying "air brush" works perfectly and quickly and a great companion of Tarte's Amazonian Clay Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15. I ordered "Light," and the coloring was perfect. I am 71 years of age using only good skin care, and good makeup to keep me looking at my best. My skin looks flawless!
HAPPY TO BE OFF THE FENCE!
I ordered this after having been watching for some time. Easy Pay was the little nudge that I needed. Foundation matched my complexion. Ordered TAN but box was labeled "tan honey" would have liked to have known that in advance though. The foundation seems stiff upon applying and dries rather quickly. The brush is what makes for that air-brushed finish.
