In my opinion,

I quite like this foundation, I think it gives you a medium to full coverage. I love how they have a shade for all types of skin tones (yellow, neutral, etc). I was obviously super excited to try out this all new tarte foundation that has finally launched in all Sephora stores in the Middle East. As you apply this foundation, it’s not too heavy but still gives you a good amount of coverage and is semi matte, so you still get that glow. It’s good for combination skin as well as normal skin. This Amazonian Clay foundation isn’t very thick that’s why I like to wear it when I’m going for an everyday (natural) kind of look, it’s very comfortable on my skin and looks just as good at 8pm as it did at 8am (does require touch ups if you’re outdoors). On the other hand, it’s even perfect for a night out since it’s so buildable you can achieve a full coverage glamorous look. I’d definitely recommend this foundation if you’re looking for something that gives you a medium to full coverage but at the same time, doesn’t look too cakey or heavy. The texture is so soft you don’t really feel like you’re applying foundation, it super buildable and blendable!

The packaging & quantity

A cute tube like container, which i personally appreciate. I’d much rather be satidfied by being able to press out the last bit of foundation rather than the pump-like containers where the last bit will just never come out. It’s definitely safer while travelling as it has a screw on cap. Quantity wise, I’m absolutely ecstatic about since its 50 mL, which is 20mL more than the standard 30mL.
