Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation Review by The Gossip Darling

Happy Monday darlings! Hope you all had fab weekends. I am sharing my thoughts on one of my all time favorite foundations, Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. I've been using this baby on and off for years and it has become one of my beauty staples. Let's go in!

I tend to go on spending splurges and there's nothing more I love to splurge on than makeup. One very late night while watching QVC, they were showcasing Tarte's Amazonian Clay Foundation and there was a crazy good deal, buy the foundation and get the brush for free. How can you go wrong? So I made my purchase and as soon as my package arrived, I tore the box open and rushed to try my new foundation. I wasn't disappointed. 

Heads up, I love full coverage foundations and I have combination skin with acne issues. Sometimes on the weekends I will go lighter and use a BB cream but most times I use very full coverage foundations. If you are looking for something sheer and "light", this isn't the foundation for you. If you are looking for lighter coverage but want to try Tarte's Amazonian clay foundation, then I would give their Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer a go. 

This time around, I purchased two super sized foundations and their special edition deco airbrush buffer foundation brush for $54 plus shopping and handling. That's crazy cheap considering each foundation is $39 and the brush alone is $34. (Thank you QVC!)

My shade is medium honey and it's just perfect for me. I apply very little of this foundation on the back of my hand and then I dip the brush into it. A little bit goes a very long way and it's better to use a little in the beginning and then you can build from there. This foundation can make you look cakey very easily (just my opinion) so it's better to use a little and then build. The brush is super soft and I just love the feel of it on my face. I apply the foundation using circular motions around my face and it almost feels like I'm getting a mini massage. It blends very easily and has SPF 15 so it provides a little protection from the sun. My makeup does not move at all after a 14 hour work day. Sometimes I even work out and my makeup hasn't moved! (Hahaha it cracks me up!) It will covers all flaws and imperfections and it actually helps me save a few steps because I don't also use my concealer. If you have any redness, blemishes, or spots, this foundation will help you keep the imperfections secret.

For those who want to try to get a lighter coverage using this foundation, I would recommend using a Beauty Blender instead to the airbrush buffer brush. I also would recommend using a primer before applying this foundation because a primer makes your skin smoother and makeup blends more easily.

Tarte offers 25 shades so you'll be able to find your perfect match. The formula also contains vitamins A and E as well as mineral pigments. We also love keeping animals safe so this is vegan friendly and oil free too.

Have you ever tried this foundation? Please share your thoughts down below!

Have a great week!

  3. I have this foundation stashed in my vanity drawers and I forgot about how much I loved it! I have noticed how I like the foundation so much better with a beauty blender, but Tarte does very little wrong in my eyes. :)

  5. I tried this a while back and I didn't mind it, but I didn't love how it looked on its own. I actually ended up using the entire bottle though, I mixed it in with my Sheer Glow foundation!

  6. I wish I could get my hands on this one. If I could I would indeed purchase it, as everyone seem to be raving about it. I have dry skin though, you think it would work for me? X
