Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage

I'll admit, I bought this product at two in the morning off QVC a year ago and honestly, I've used it four times and hate it. I had to wait for about four months until it shipped out, they didn't have my shade in stock. I was more than excited to try it but to my surprise I couldn't believe how horrible it looked on my skin.
Please take into account that I have heard many people rave about this foundation and how much they love it. As with any other product, what works for some, does not work for others.

What kind of skin do you have?

I have oily, acne prone skin, that lately has been more combination (I hate flakey skin!).

Why don't you like it?

It makes my skin look like an alligator and settles in every single crease! My face gets extremely oily within an hour and it's so sheer, even after applying two coats...which then just make it look cakey ha ha.

Final Thoughts

Okay, I'll admit...this review was a tad harsh. I'll stick with my $3.50 foundation that I ADORE! Now, I paid around 35 or a little more for this foundation but it came with a large application brush as well.

Okay, serious review ending in!
So tell me, what's your favorite foundation? Have you tried anything from Tarte? Love it, hate?

Until next time... xox

  2. My skin is oily but recently has gotten more combination (flakey) too, right across my cheek bones. I'm almost certain it's the cold!

  3. Hi Mimi!! Thanks so much for the reply! Tarte makes some products I love, sadly this just isn't one of them haha. I absolutely adore rimmel londons clean finish foundation. It's AMAZING! It's also extremely cheap, which is always a plus haha.

  4. Alexia, I totally agree with you! Winter definitely strips your skin of it's moisture :(
