Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer & Brush Review & Swatches
I recently realized that Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer and Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer are two different products. How in the world do I let things like this slip me by?
They look so similiar I hadn’t realize it was too different concealers. Duh! Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer was recently released for Spring 2013 in five selections on QVC.
One of the best parts about this launch is the fact that QVC bundles the concealer with an excellent Double-Ended Airbrush Concealer Brush much like my beloved Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush for $23.14. Where can you get a full coverage concealer and a brush for application at that price?
Take a peek!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer is a super buildable concealer created with Amazon Clay that keeps skin balanced. It works on oily skin the mattify and dry to hydrate. Pretty crazy idea that a single ingredient can perform two very separate functions.
This concealer formula promises a waterproof 12 hour wear with a weightless texture.
They aren’t joking about two things, the long wear and the full coverage.
A single drop will conceal most major issues such as dark circles, finer lines, and puffiness. Or if you’re using it on your face acne scarring, dark spots, and redness shouldn’t be an issue to conceal with a formula as richly pigmented as this.
I didn’t personally like the Maracuja Creaseless Concealeras it was a smidge to emollient and thick for me however, it seems that Tarte improved upon that formula with Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer. This is a lighter texture with a hydrating formula but isn’t as emollient as the Maracuja formula. It has a thick almost grease paint texture, I know, sounds rather discouraging but you need to know how to work with it for the best results.
I think aging eyes will be intimidated by such a formula as it does seem like a product you’ll need to tug on to get blended out correctly. The key here is plenty of prep work. Make sure your eyes are hydrated well if you have drier eyes (oily eyes need not worry). Squeeze a small amount, VERY small, onto the back of your hand. Now swipe your brush back and fourth into the concealer several times building color onto the brush but also dispersing with a majority of the concealer. Not slowly brush onto eyes and pat into place with fingers. Use the larger side of the brush to swipe across the area you blended with your finger. This basically gives an airbrushed finish to your blending job.
Done! Perfect coverage and an airbrushed appearance.
They aren’t kidding when they say this is waterproof with twelve hours of wear. Applied correctly it’ll remain crease-free and will wear through a full eight to ten hour day without fading away or creasing.
Now I think Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer is a challenging product to use which is why it’s great that Tarte provides you with the correct tools to get the most from this concealer. It has a learning curve but once you start applying it correctly I think you’ll be quite happy with the results. The brush is a god sent as I really do think this is what aids the concealer in looking its best and most flawless.
Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Deep
Overall, Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer provides FULL coverage so if you have dark circles you’re struggling with you’ll find that this conceals MAJOR issues such as those.
