Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation + Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush REVIEW

I bet that you must have heard of Tarte before cause it's always one of the top brand that loved by everyone in Sephora, and even for most of the beauty gurus in YouTube!

Tarte isn't just famous in their gorgeous product packaging, but also a smart, colourful brand that offers cruelty-free beauty products that deliver real results for real women. Besides, each powerful & wearable tarte formula is bursting with ingredients like superfruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, and essential oils.

This vegan & skin friendly cosmetic brand is one of the reason why I have gotten the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF15 for my problem skin to try out cause I still have a lot of post acne scars left after recovering from my serious skin condition, but still don't want to get irritated again by any other cosmetics at the same time.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation was said to give you 12 hours of flawless coverage with their skin-perfecting, full-coverage formula. Whether skin is oily, dry, or combination, Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to meet and address your skin concerns for makeup that wears better, longer and truer. This revolutionary foundation reduces the appearance of pores, discolorations and imperfections.


The benefits from this foundation includes
  • full coverage,
  • blendable and buildable,
  • lightweight texture,
  • paraben-free, sulfate-free and phthalate-free,
  • with UVB/UVA SPF 15,
  • hypoallergenic, and most importantly,
  • it's vegan.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation has a creamy texture that provides full coverage.

Half face comparison - can you see the huge difference already?!
The Neutral shade does provides a little bit of pink undertone in my original yellow undertone.
The coverage is so strong!!

My thoughts

I'm glad that I finally found the right shade of foundation for my skin tone with perfect coverage! I'm impressed with the super wide range of shades choices. I thought that I would need the Medium shade cause my skin has gone darker now. For us Malaysian, I think that Neutral shade is the best as it gives a little bit of pink undertone for a slight healthy glow in our original yellow undertone. But still, it's better for you to visit the store to consult for your perfect shade before you regret!

I haven't really wore this foundation for up to 12 hours yet, but to be honest, I realized it started to melt on my oily skin after about 7 hours, which is almost the end of my work day in the office. And I'm actually surprised that the box packaging mentioned that it has to be reapply at least every 2 hours, and please, that doesn't make this product a 12-hour makeup. However, a foundation that can last till at least 7 hours (for oily skin in air-conditioned room) is considered good!

Other than that, I have to say that I love this foundation very much, especially with the real full coverage on my spots, and the blendable creamy but weightless liquid foundation texture! The best part is it doesn't irritates my skin at all! Overall it's great for me and I would definitely recommend for those who needs a full coverage foundation badly!

To compliment with my new liquid foundation, I've also got myself the Tarte's Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush as both of them are actually created to be used together. Been wanting the similar foundation brush for a while and finally I did it!

This foundation brush is created to flawlessly blends and buffs makeup for a perfectly airbrushed effect.

The bristles that are made of bamboo instead of animal hair, are super soft and comfortable to blend on the skin.
The wooden holder is wide and short, easy to be hold while buffering the face.
The flat surface able to let the brush to be stand straight up so that the bristles wouldn't be touching any dirty surfaces.

Usage Direction

  1. Dispense a quarter-size amount of tarte foundation to the back of your hand.
  2. Pick up a small amount using the airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush and brush onto your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending out.
  3. Achieve a flawless, even complexion by soft circular buffing sweeps.
Sometimes I used it on my loose powder as well!

My thoughts

Believe me, this is my very first buffer foundation brush! Seeing YouTube Gurus using this kind of foundation brush to apply foundation makes me wanna immediately go and get one and buff it on my face, and now I finally can do it anytime I want!

Since I never own any buffer foundation brush before, but what I always seen in makeup tutorials plus touching all of the brushes in Sephora, this brush is considered as one of the great one! The bristles are really soft that I just can't stop playing with it every time I sees it on my table!

For the blending, yes I really really really love how it blends my foundation on my skin every time I use it! It even blends my loose powder and bronzers very well. Considered that the whole thing is great quality, plus it's easy to be take good care of, I would really recommend this brush to everyone of you who's still using fingers or sponges to apply foundations!

Here my foundation was blended with the Buffer Foundation Brush, and it does give an airbrush finishing look!
