Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation
I've been using this foundation for about a week now, and I've got the hang of applying it so that it works well for me. It is quite thick, but when applied sparsely with a sponge or a foundation brush, it provides a ton of coverage/evenness and gives my skin a nice matte look as well. I can definitely see how over-applying this even by a little would throw a wrench in the gears, though. The key thing to remember here is that a little goes a looooooong way! Also I notice that like a lot of foundations, it doesn't agree much with dry skin and might enhance flakeage. Not too much of a problem for me right now, but I can see how it could be a hassle to others. On the bright side, the variety in colors means I was able to find a really nice match for my skin!
To start off I have combo skin I my face is dry all over except for my T zone, which tends to get a oily! I bought this foundation thinking it was going to do wonders but it just made everything look so cakey and ugly! I love tarte and as much as I wanted to love this foundation I couldn't :( it would emphasize my dry skin.
It was good cover up but was super thick on my face and through out the day looked blotchy but it looked great the first couple hours on my face
This is my main foundation right now and it's pretty good! I have really dry skin and this doesn't dry me out, which is a plus. The coverage is also better than average. The only thing I do not like about this product is that it can rubs off easily throughout the day.
This foundation is my new go to! Yes, it's not exactly wallet friendly but it's so worth the money! I can't tell you how pleased I am with this product, I wore it for the first time to work this morning and it lasted the entire day! It made my skin look and feel amazing. After washing it off I noticed my skin felt extra soft, I love this product I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new foundation!
A lady at Sephora tried this on me with the kabuki brush you're supposed to use with it. It didn't cover anything after she was done. The second layer didn't do anything either. She has done my foundation before and it's been a disaster so I think it might of been her applying it. Other than that it did feel smooth and light.
Full coverage but heavy
This is a good foundation for anyone looking for a full coverage foundation and doesn't mind the feel of it. It is very thick and dries out to a matte finish. Unfortunately for me it tends to look cakey, even with the smallest amount and at times, it set so quickly that it was hard to blend in certain areas. Because this is a matte foundation, I do not recommend it for people with dry skin as it can look flaky and patchy in dry areas. But overall this is definitely a good foundation for someone with normal to oily skin looking for a full coverage.
