Tarte Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation Review & Swatches
Tarte Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation launches tomorrow in the Tarte Color Your World QVC Today’s Special Value.
This brand new foundation will be available in five shade selections and gets a world wide launch in the Colored Clay Set and the only way you’ll be able to get your hands on the foundation for now. And believe me, it’s well worth a pick up as the set includes 7 delicious products from Tarte including Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation for $59!
Although it gets huge raves Tarte’s 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation is sometimes a little too dry for me and offers a bit too much coverage but I ran into no such issues with the new Tarte Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation!
Tarte Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation is a lightweight full coverage buildable cream foundation that comes housed in a screw top jar that quite reminds me of the packaging that Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation comes in! I think the packaging is a little messy…it has a stopped located on the lid and a larger spout located in the center of the jar which releases product. My first use things were a ok but with continued use the foundation starts to drip along the rim of the jar and ends up all over the well. It’s not really travel friendly that’s for sure…! I also wish I had somewhere I can dip and blend my brush around but unfortunately I’m left to dipping and using the back of my hand to thin and blend color into my brush. Needless to say I think this might do better in a bottle or a tube of some sort versus a jar.

Tarte actually gives you a brush to apply this. The brush is a slanted, short handled brush which is ideal for brushing on product and blending it out. Since the texture is runny yet thick with full coverage you want something to thin out the foundation for you and the brush comes in mighty handy to do this. This is the type of product you want to start lightly with and build slowly because it is very, very pigmented. It is customizable in a sense as you can go very sheer with it or build it to full coverage should you wish.
I find the finish is slightly dewy on my drier skin and doesn’t cling to drier areas. It has a beautiful flawless finish when applied correctly and brightens skin as it evens it out and if you have blemishes, redness, etc it’ll easily conceal these areas for a perfect look. It also features an SPF 15.
I got about 5 hours of wear from in a warmer climate. I actually wore it over the weekend in a warmer environment and saw about five hours of wear from it before it showed minor signs of wear. Of course, I didn’t set with powder so I’d say powder would give you an extra hour with it. In a colder climate I got six hours without any issues and even at hour seven it was still looking fairly fresh without oxidation or fading.
I have drier skin so this is definitely a dream product for me. I wanna call it a cream but it is more of a liquid foundation and that shines through in its consistency. I think many people might want to compare it to Maracuja Miracle Foundation but I think it’s considerably different with better coverage and a more no makeup finish on my skin.
I can see this becoming apart of my daily foundation staples. I really liked the coverage, the application, and the overall look of this on my skin and paired up with Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer you have a very nice flawless canvas for your other makeup products!
Muse Approved on this one.
