Such a Little Tarte

Recently I ran out of my MakeUp Forever Mat Velvet foundation. I was completely distraught when Sephora was out of my particular go to shade (At three different stores no less!). You would think that going to a shade lighter or darker wouldn't be so much of a problem, but anything I tried I just did not like.

In complete dismay I asked the sales girl what would be a comparable foundation to what I was using in another brand for normal to oily skin. What she recommended to me was Tarte's Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation.

Can I just tell you, this is like airbrushed foundation without the air! It is so easy to achieve total skin balance while still achieving that natural  look.

Whether your skin is oily, dry, or combination, skin-smart Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to address your complexion concerns. This revolutionary foundation also reduces the appearance of pores, while minimizing discolorations and imperfections to ensure a perfectly flawless complexion.

Having been a MakeUp Forever girl . . . for as long as I can remember, my guard was definitely up the first month or so of  trying this product. The only thing that makes this foundation less than perfect for me is that I do end up with oily break-through on my t-zone mid-day. However it doesn't discolor or separate. Just a little bit of shine.

Will this be my new go-to foundation?  The jury is still out on that one, but I definitely recommend you give it a try.


  1. That is such a good suggestion!!! I use tarte's amazonian clay "gifted" mascara and I have to say I'm loving it, too!

    I just use concealer but if I need big girl foundation ever I'm going for this!

  2. I will TOTALLY have to try this! LOVE recommendations like this!
