Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation Review(Light-Medium)
I bought another foundation. I really don't know why I have such a great interest in face makeup. I rarely need to wear it but I just want to try new products. Anyyyywaaay.. I have never tried a product from Tarte. I had a coupon from Ulta so I decided to try this foundation. I usually gravitate towards a full coverage foundation. I like to cover the redness of my cheeks and essentially just have an even skin tone.
I decided to go with Light-Medium because I read it would be a good shade for me. I normally wear an NC30/35 in MAC. This shade matches me really well. I didn't think I would be in the "lighter" shades but I feel like it darkens. It does oxidize so it will change the color slightly darker than what it initially looks like once applied.
The consistency of this foundation is mousse-like. It reminds me so much of Revlon's Colorstay Whipped Foundation (I really DID NOT care for this foundation too much). It blends well but only when I apply it with my fingers. I used this initially with brushes but I always got a streaky look. Now, I just use my fingers because it blends the foundation much better.
I have been using this on and off for the past two weeks and I am on the fence about this. I like it but it doesn't last as long as my other foundations. It is full coverage but it does fade away after a few hours. I really don't have to use concealer when I use this but because it doesn't last long, I would say it might be a good idea to wear concealer. Particularly, it fades from my nose quickly.
After a few hours, I look at my face and I'm like "wtf!??!?!"... not really happy with this foundation.
I don't think I would repurchase this foundation since I have other foundations that I love so much (NARS Sheer Glow). I'll use it up but it's not worth it to me... so bummed I wasted my money on this...
I would recommend this foundation to those who have oily skin. I have dry skin so it doesn't work as well as others say.
