Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation
Let me start off with my first impressions of this product. When you just look at the color without swatching it, you might think it’s too dark. Even the worker at Sephora said she thinks it’s too dark on me, but when she swatched it, it was a perfect match for my face. So MAKE SURE YOU SWATCH IT! My first thought about the texture was that it was really thick & I didn’t like it that much, but I heard soooo many good things about it & because Sephora has such an amazing return policy, I decided to give it a go. I am so glad that I did. It blends out so effortlessly & seamlessly. It doesn’t feel as thick on your face blended out as it does when you just squeeze it out of the bottle.
This foundation really lives up to it’s claim of being long-wearing, it says 12-hour, but I believe it lasts longer than that. I was once up & running around like a chicken with my head cut off for 38 hours straight, and I had to touch up ONCE. It also lives up to it’s claim of being water proof. My friend and I had decided spontaneously to go swimming & I had makeup on that day (normally, if I plan to swim I don’t wear makeup). It was still perfectly in tact by the time we were done swimming, however my eye makeup was smeared but that’s a different story. I LOVE the staying power of this foundation.
One of my favorite things about this product is that it has SPF 15. I have extremely sensitive skin & I can’t wear sunblock on my face for that reason — So I have to find moisturizers and foundations with SPF that DON’T make my skin react….a giant scavenger hunt if you ask me. So when I do find things that don’t make my skin react, I buy it, because it’s rare.
I really recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a full-coverage, light-weight, long-wearing foundation. It’s a bit pricey, but I think it’s worth the $40!
I hope this review helped out in anyway. Please send any requests you may have in my ask, and I’ll do my best to get to each and everyone of them! Thanks <3
