I really like this foundation and I'm a BB Cream girl. I just fell in love with Tart's BB cream then I had to try this. I put this on with my RT foundation brush and I only needed the smallest amount to cover my face very well. I think it's medium to light coverage because I don't have many spots and it covered everything with one layer. I didn't have to build it up to get the coverage I needed. It can be built though for skin that needs more coverage.
I had it on at least 10 hours and my skin looked perfect. No flaws,blotchyness,spots,Etc. My skin looked flawless. It really impressed me that something that stays for 12 hours feels like nothing on your skin. It's very light on the skin and this is the only foundation that I will wear.
Right now this is my HG! No cakyness or it not mixing with my moisturizer and primer. I got this in a set but it's a huge amount but I will buy the regular size before I run out as this is the only foundation I will use atm.It also doesn't make me break out and it controls oil very well so it's the perfect Summer foundation.
Give it a try ladies it's really good and I hope you have the same awesome results.Also I have super oily skin and it doesn't make it worse it makes it better.
I bought this product when I was in desperate need for something new. I couldn't find anything that would hide AND cover my acne at the same time until I came across this foundation. It works great! It covers any scars and over time actually decreases the amount of acne. I had it for about three months until I had to buy another one. It's pretty pricey, but definitely worth it.
The best foundation for
-oily breakout prone skin
-skin stays matte
-stays on all day
Can look and feel a little heavy If you over apply
-I cannot wear this in the winter because the clay that absorbs the oil and keeps you matte will also dry out your skin and cause flakes
I'd say this is the perfect summer foundation for skin that's normal-combination-oily.
It's also natural so it's so much better for your skin and won't clog pores even close to as much as cheap loreal/covergirl, ect foundations
If you have had trouble looking for a matte full-coverage foundation, look no further! I have tried everything from Clinique to MAC, and this is by far the most impressive. I have pretty oily skin, and living in a hot climate doesnt help. The staying power is absolutley phenomenal; only needing a touch-up after SEVEN hours! The coverage is very full, but you can work with it. I suggest using a very dense Kabuki brush, because that seems to give the best results. It provides an airbrushed finish that is unmatched. It is pricey, but with great packaging and a lot of product, you get some bang for your buck. Worth a try! It is my HG foundation!
This foundation is great, almost perfect! I have oily acne prone skin, and large pores! This seems to minimize my pore size (sure it's just an illusion but it looks great!) and makes my skin look dewy and clean and clear. I don't consider this a full coverage, more medium. For a fuller coverage I actually just use concealer in the spots I want more coverage then the foundation. I don't like the application when applied with my hands or a brush, I use the beauty blender I bought at sephora and it gives me a clean streak free air brushed look. Lasts about 6 hours but I find I need to touch up (maybe because of really oily skin!) It doesn't make me break out and I don't mind the packaging because I cut the tube when I'm done and seal it in a airtight Baggie (ziplock) so I can use every last little bit of product. I will continue to buy this, so far it's the only thing that looks great on my skin after trying *hundreds* of foundations over the years.
You HAVE to get the matching Amazonian clay foundation brush! I get compliments on my makeup all the time because this brush makes your skin absolutely flawless! It gives it the most beautiful airbrushed finish. I have 3 of these brushes! They wash and dry nicely.
I have this in 2 shades: light and medium. The light is my main shade and I blend in a little bit of medium based on how tan my skin is. PROS: light to medium coverage, excellent consistency, excellent blendability, good staying power, doesn't look cakey, there is a lot in the tube and it goes a long way, tube allows you to squeeze out the majority of product/no waste, it does help control oil, I've not worn it over 10 hours - but it works well during that time frame, no break-outs or rashes (I have sensitive skin). CONS: shade variety is limited. Hmm, I don't have a lot of cons for this product. A couple tips that work for me...blending two shades to get the correct shade for your skin is helpful as the color selection is a bit limited. I was never a foundation brush person until this product. When I used my fingers to blend I always ended up with a heavier coverage that what I like (I was moving from TM to this product), but the foundation brush allows me to blend it with a lighter touch. It helps control oil, but I also use a mattifying moisurizer (murad) and a light dusting of powder to set it (hd-mufe) and with that combination I do not look oily at all - even after 10 hours. I will keep buying this as I swapped for many products until I found this one and it does exactly what I want it to do.
If you have oily skin and you want a light-weight natural looking foundation with pretty good coverage, then this is the foundation for you! I love how the texture is moussey and creamy, yet it's not going to make you look like an oil-slick at the end of the day (unlike *AHEM* MUFE HD Foundation). It also doesn't seem to oxidize on me either which is a bonus! I don't recommend this foundation for those who are prone to dry skin because it can accentuate dry patches if you have any (and if you do, moisturize). It also has pretty good staying power.
This is my holy grail foundation as of right now, and that is HUGE for me to say because I have tried (probably hundreds) of foundations in my lifetime, both high and low end, and never felt this way about any of them before.
This foundation blends like a dream, and still gives full coverage with it looking natural, like you have perfect skin, and it lasts ALL DAY LONG. It is non-drying or irritating to my dry skin whatsoever, it does not break me out, and i'd say it leaves a semi-matte, kinda satin finish which is beautiful and makes me glow in all the RIGHT places!
The lasting power on it is really great. I get compliments on my skin whenever I wear this foundation (and the concealer) The formulation is absolutely perfect. I have a very high-stress job in retail where i am running around all day long and it gets quite hot, and I do produce some oil, but whenever I pass a mirror, i look flawless just as i put the foundation on in the morning. After using this product and the concealer, I am now obsessed with Tarte. I already bought their amazonian clay lipstick & bronzer and i plan on purchasing more from this line because i know i can depend on the products, they truly say what they're going to do and work so well on my less than perfect skin.
I am upset that I haven't tried Tarte sooner. I did not order this off of QVC, i just simply walked into my local sephora and picked it up. Great stuff.
I purchased this from QVC. I watched the models and the artist apply it and thought ok...it seems like a great product. It was a special puchase which included the application brush and product.
I have nothing but great things to say about this product. It is a full coverage foundation, which others that I have puchased are either cakey or dry and do not go on smoothly. This is so moist and easy to apply.
I actually went to repurchase this at Ulta and they were out, the SA made a suggestion that I should try another brand.... needless to say...I returned that with in 2 days and by then the Tarte 12 hour Amazonian Foundation was back in stock! I do use this when I really need full coverage it is my HG for full coverage, however I also do use the Tarte BB tinted 12 hour primer for days when I don't want to get too dolled up.
I like this product for the mere fact that it is full coverage, without drying out my skin. It covers the redness around my nose and cheeks. I start the application process from the nose and work my way out toward my jawbone. I use my MAC foundation brush to apply and then the Tarte bush (that is sold with this foundation) and buff, (in a circular motion) out any lines left when applying and to finish blending the product in to my skin.
My daughter, 20 tried to use the product. She claimed that it clogged her pores and make her break out. At the same time she was getting a facial and trying out a new skin care line. So it could of been anything that would of caused the break out.
However, I do recomend taking the extra time to clean your face at the end of the day. This stuff last and stays on strong. I set mine with fine translucent powder in the morning and the powder again in the afternoon just in my t-zone area. It is an oil free product, but my skin does get oily as the day goes on.
I would recomend this to anyone that would like to cover sun damage, redness and other flaws or imperfections.
