Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation with SPF15

This Tarte Amazonia Clay Foundation with SPF 15 is, by far, one of the best and healthiest foundations I have ever owned. But, what makes this foundation even more amazing is Tarte's unique blending brush. Using both of these products together gives you an airbrushed look with weightless, yet, full coverage.

The brush, alone, sells for over $35 but you can get both items in a special set offered exclusively at QVC.

As a reference, the color that suits my skin tone is tan. The foundation is available in 6 tones, ranging from fair to deep.


What is it: A revolutionary foundation with Amazonian clay that helps reduce the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections to ensure a perfectly flawless complexion.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants a foundation that gives you flawless coverage with good-for-you skin care benefits.

Why is it different: Whether your skin is oily, dry, or combination, skin-smart Amazonian clay will adjust to meet and address your skin concerns while providing full-coverage with a weightless texture. Also formulated with vitamin E and mineral pigments to soften and smooth your skin, the supremely blendable and buildable formula allows you to achieve skin that looks natural and healthy. Use the airbrush-finish bamboo foundation brush to get a truly even application.

How do I use it: Using the bamboo foundation brush, apply in soft circular motions to blend and buff away imperfections, creating an airbrush-like finish.
