tarte tip: For a perfected complexion, gently push the airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush into the mesh sifter—no shaking necessary! Tap away any excess and buff the moisture-rich powder onto skin in circular motions until desired coverage is achieved. The silky formula erases imperfections and soothes skin for a finish so flawless, your skin transforms to perfection with just a few strokes of the custom kabuki brush.

What is it: tarte's first ever full-coverage powder foundation enriched with Amazonian clay and gemstones.

Who is it for: Anyone looking for a powder foundation to achieve total skin balance while providing flawless coverage.

Why is it different: This finely milled powder offers eight hours of full coverage with a skin-balancing formula that delivers a natural-looking finish that won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. The moisture-rich, weightless foundation buffs on smooth and allows your skin to breathe! Thanks to Amazonian clay and gemstones, the foundation reawakens and invigorates skin tone and texture for a more youthful-looking complexion.

How do I use it: Using the Airbuki Foundation Brush, buff the powder into skin with soft, circular motions.

tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 284.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I would just call this average at best. I tried it out because I thought it would give me foundation coverage, but it just felt like drying powder on my face. I will say it looks pretty natural, and the finish buffs out rather nicely, I just didn't like the overall texture or feel of this product, and I ended up throwing it out before I ran out simply because I realized it was something I didn't enjoy wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation I've Ever Used I have acne prone, 39 year old, combination skin. I am kicking myself for not trying this sooner. I've tried so many powder and mineral foundations - Bare Minerals, Jane Iredale, Dior, Clarins, IT Cosmetics ....just to name a few! I've probably tried at least 15-20 powder foundations over the years. I've tried even more liquid foundations. This foundation gives me great coverage that lasts all day and does not look cakey or make me look older! It's also quick and easy to apply. I apply with the Tarte brush and can buff it in or press it into the skin in areas where I need more coverage - sometimes my whole cheek is broken out! If I have smaller areas to cover, I just use a small concealer brush to apply this to the spots. It lasts all day! I ran 18 miles in this and it was still there (no primer) - covering the severe acne flare I was having. I wish it had UV protection, but most powder foundations don't contain enough UVA protection, so I end up wearing additional sunscreen anyway. This goes on top of the smooth operator primer very well, but I have not had good luck pairing it with the Tarte BB primer or the Bare Minerals BB primer. It will still last all day for me without a primer, I just like to minimize my pores sometimes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best powder foundation so far! I have oily skin and going into the warm months I wanted a powder foundation. I was alittle upset when I ordered the light and what I got was light beige for pink undertones. Well I pretty much have neutral undertones and after looking at this at ulta I discovered there are alot more shades available but why not here? I see qvc does have those shades but not with the brush even though it is pictured with it and is misleading. To my surprise the shade actually worked. Your skin looks airbrushed. It doesn't make pores look larger like others do and it stayed flawless for hours. . Did not have to blot my oily skin numerous times. Please make this with spf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin looks after a day on the beach ! I love and my skin too! the only thing I would like to address, it is very little product for the amount of money we pay for it! I order the tan color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! Super Easy on the skin, covers easily, holds up to S. Florida Heat, no other product, not even Bare Minerals has done that... I'm extremely happy with this product. It is amazing and even in my lighted 10X x 1 Magnifier Mirror, this product goes on great. No clogged pores, it's smooth application, not too dark or light, just right. Perfection. Thanks :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation so far I don't wear liquid because it always feels too heavy. I've worn Bare Minerals and Laura Geller back and forth for years. Coverage was good, but this is 10x better coverage. It stays on longer and looks air brushed. I swipe my face twice to get full coverage and I am off for the day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't like it When they show it on air, they show it covering all types of skin discoloration . I don't have many, and they are light, but it did not cover like they showed it to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love Tarte but not this product.... I'm a big fan of Tarte products but this just didn't do it for me. It was not full coverage and the foundation somehow made my imperfections stand out even more. I really wanted to love this product. The packaging is nice (not messy) and the brush is great but the foundation just didn't work for me.
