The foundation of the moment

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation review swatch photo

I’ve recently been in love with by is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation which I bought when I was in NYC last. It reminds me a little of my all-time favourite foundation Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation as it has that creamy mousee-y feel to it. Medium to Full coverage is perfect for my crazy skin tone, blemishes and imperfections. Like with Silk Creme I use a tiny amount and buff buff buff for a flawless natural finish. While full coverage sounds scary it looks incredibly natural when worn in moderation. It doesn’t feel cakey, heavy or too mask like on the skin which is a bonus.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation comes in a bunch of shades from really light to pretty dark, I'm the shade Light Sand which is designed for light skintones with yellow undertones. It matches like a dream.

  4. I bought this last week. Liking so far and yes it's definitely a little similar to the Laura Mercier, which I have another tube of coming tomorrow....

    I'd be very interested to try this foundation, as I too am a massive fan of Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation! Never thought I'd hear of a rival for it though.

  22. I love the Tarte foundation. It is thick but never looks too cakey, and is perfect for travel in it's sleek little tube.

  23. I've seen this raved about and have wanted to try it for so long. I'm glad you have said it isn't too cakey as that has been one of the things worrying me about this.

  26. If this foundation was available in The Netherlands I would have bought this one, but now I'll probably go for the Chanel Vitalumiere Fluide or so. ^^

  29. Wow, it really looks flawless but not cakey. Would love to try it but I don't think I can get my hands on it. I'm still looking for a full coverage foundation. Anyone have any recommendations from the drugstore maybe?
