Products Revisited: Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation

Lately, I have been wearing a lot of old products that were my staples and even HOLY GRAILS.

–and the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation was one of them.

It has been about a year since I stopped wearing this foundation. So how have my thoughts changed on this product, you may ask.

The answer is quite a bit.

I used to enjoy this foundation because it was full coverage. However, it was difficult to build with out the foundation looking unblended. Another big pet peeve was the emphasis of dry patches and fine lines.

My favourite feature of this foundation was for its oil control properties. However, since trying out other oil control foundations and then going back to this, I was left feeling less than desired.

It seems like when the Tarte Foundation is compared to other long lasting foundations the Tarte foundation under performed. Oil break through was evident after 4-5 hour when I had grown used to limited oil break through by 8 hours.

In Closing

Tarte is still one of my favourite brands and I stand by their claim to “high power naturals.”

I still love this foundation. It’s great for when I want to cover redness just not when I’m having a break out as it will be emphasised through dry patches.

This foundation great for days when you want oil control just not for a long work day.

    I’m considering experimenting with different foundations, but truth be told, I have no complaints about Neutrogena which I’ve been using -forever-. It blends so easily, it’s inexpensive, and super gentle. I’ve tried others and I get the cakey look.

    I used to have a problem with redness. I used a green-tinted primer – just a tad. I tried foundations that addressed redness and they were not an improvement. Cake face again.

    This is my go-to when my face is acting up. Like you, I find that it clings to dry patches and fine lines. It also emphasizes texture, and can appear patchy in sections (for me it’s my chin). After a few hours my face is also a grease-ball, no matter how much powder and mattifying spray I use.

    What I do like however, is the coverage because it hides redness pretty well. I’ve experimented a little with using it only on acne and then using a lighter coverage foundation everywhere else.

    I have never tried this or any other tarte products tbh! But they’re all over every Instagram beauty page and it makes me wanna try them out! However I have regions on my skin that are really dry ( foundation sticks to them making it flaky ) and areas that are oily! So I’m not sure whether this would be right for me! Xx
