Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

Hey Dolls!

Welcome back to the Makeup Junkie! Today's post is going to be a review on the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation. Let's jump straight into today's post!

Let's begin with product claims, price, availability, etc.
  • Tarte says, "Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing, skin-perfecting formula with UVA/UVB SPF 15. It's full-coverage and supremely blendable and buildable formula has a weightless texture and is available in a broad range of shades. Everyone can achieve skin that looks healthy and natural."
  • They claim the foundation is:
    • Oil-free
    • Long Lasting
    • 12 Hour Wear
    • Adjusts depending on skin type and skin concerns
    • Full Coverage
    • Blendable
    • Buildable
    • Free of Parabens 
    • Free of Sulfates 
    • Free of Phthalates 
  • This Foundation Comes in 23 shades; I use the shade Deep Honey. 
  • This price listed on is, $39.00 USD. 
  • This product comes in a brown squeeze tube w/ a wooden top. 
  • There is 1.7 Fluid Ounce of product in the container.  
  • The ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate Butylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Mica, Dimethicone, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Aluminum Hydroxide, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phytantriol, Hexyl Laurate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Sodium Chloride, Hexylene Glycol, Lysine, Tocopherol, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Nylon-12 Fluorescent Brightener 230 Salt, Polyvinylalcohol Crosspolymer, Kaolin, Magnesium Chloride, Potassium Chloride, Zinc Chloride, Sodium Hyaluronate, Potassium Sorbate, Iron Oxides.
Moving onto the Pros:
  • Long Lasting
  • Matte Finish
  • Light Weight
  • Buildable
  • Good Color Selection
Up next the Cons:
  • Sets Quickly; makes it hard to blend
  • Price
  • Can appear chalky if you use too many mattifying products or have dry patches
How many thumbs up?

I would say 1 1/2 thumbs up...

Final Thoughts?

This is an decent foundation for people with oily or combo skin. It works well for me because I am really oily. However, if you have dry, normal, or aging skin this may exaggerate dry patches, wrinkles, or other blemishes. When I am breaking out this seems to make the blemish more noticeable. I have also found that, if you aren't careful this can look chalky. It is buildable, but it dries fast. I suggest working in sections to avoid chalky build up. I assume it becomes chalky because of the Amazonian Clay. Which is kind of a double edged sword; on one hand, this clay absorbs oils and leaves a shine-free finish to the skin on the other it can look chalky or thick.
Would I repurchase it?
