Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation

Hello makeup junkies! It's been a long time since I tried a new foundation, so after contemplating for months, I have finally gotten my hands on the Tarte Amazian Clay foundation.

One good thing about Tarte as a brand is that they focus on very natural makeup that is not tested on animals. So there are no bunnies harmed in the making of this foundation! ;D

I found that this foundation is very long wearing with my oily skin. It doesn't last all day without any touch ups, but I haven't found something that does. Does it last 12 hours? Not for me. If you have normal to dry skin, then this definitely will. But since my skin is really oily, I do see it start to break down by the end of the day.

The coverage is medium to full with a matte finish. If you want something with a more satin or dewy finish then this might not be the one for you. The texture is very thick but it feels very lightweight on the skin. Sometimes I like that feeling, but if I don't really want to deal with it, I mix it in with a bb cream to get the texture of the bb cream and the coverage of the foundation.

Overall: I really like this foundation. It's probably not my holy grail, but do see why so many people like it. The search for the perfect foundation continues! 

See you guys next time! XD


  1. Great review! I like a more glowy finish so I'll probably pass on this but I love how it's full coverage!

    Would love if you check out my blog
    Just made various social media accounts too so if you'd like to follow me in any of them, I would really appreciate it! :) I just followed you on twitter

  2. Hey Sonya,
    Thanks for checking out my blog, I love yours & will be following you :-) I've always been interested in this foundation because bloggers do rave about it but it is unfortunate it didn't last 12 hours. How long did it last on your skin?


    1. Thank you so much! I usually can go about 6 1/2 hours without touching up. But that's with my really oily skin so foundations break down pretty easily on me. ^_^
