Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hr Full Coverage Foundation Review

Hi dolls,

Welcome back to my blog ♡

Recently I’ve purchased the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hr Full Coverage Foundation from Ulta.  I had been looking for something more full coverage and longer lasting on my oily skin.  After a week of using this I am in love.



I went there bare faced to get color matched correctly.  I had originally ordered the shade Medium Sand but it ended up being too light and chalky looking on me.  The girl there matched me to the shade Medium Tan Honey and it is almost perfect.  I had to settle with this one because the other two would be too light or noticeably too dark. 


This foundation retails for $38 at all 3 retailers (Ulta, Sephora, and the Tarte website).  This purchase I made from Ulta came with a deluxe sample of Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primer.

There are a variety of 25 shades to choose from, and you get 1.7 fl.oz. of product.   All I use is a drop and it is enough to cover one side of my face.

Some perks to this foundation are UV protection, long lasting wear for up to approx. 12 hours (mine lasted more like 9 hrs.), and pore reduction.

Amazonian clay is said to help balance skin, reduce dryness, improve skin clarity; elasticity; firmness, as well as remove surface oil from the skin to help product last longer.


I am a sucker for packaging and this products packaging is gorgeous.  I love the wood like cap it has because it adds to that Amazonian theme and makes it seem exotic.   It fits well in my bag as well. 

I apply a small amount of product on my finger and dab it on different areas of my face, then blend in with a buffing brush. 

If you have a very oily t-zone like myself and are looking for a fuller coverage foundation then I highly recommend this foundation.


Thank you for reading!
