Product Description

Have you fed your skin lately? Our 12-hour, creamy matte clay stick feeds your appetite for weightless, natural coverage & good-for-you nutrients. #feedyourflawless

  • Amazonian clay: nature’s most perfect ingredient for better, longer, truer wear 
  • mineral pigments: soothe & soften skin 
  • vitamin C: antioxidant that fights free radicals while brightening skin
  • vitamin E: natural preservative that also acts as an emollient & antioxidant

Product performance: A buildable, powder-to-liquid formula that melts into skin for medium-to-full coverage, leaving a natural finish that looks & feels just like your own skin. Micro-encapsulated powders then burst with your body heat to keep you shine & cake-free. The vegan formula features antioxidant vitamins C, E & Amazonian clay, a total skin-balancing powerhouse that hydrates or mattifies depending on your skin type. The guilt-free blend also means there are no harsh chemicals like talc, gluten, sulfates, or parabens in your buildable, creamy coverage. Use on-the-go, as a spot concealer, or in lighter or darker shades to highlight & contour – just swipe, blend & #slaywithclay.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay stick is amazing! I was skeptical about it but, holy moly it’s awesome! It goes on so smoothly, buildable coverage, hydrating, made my skin feel & look airbrushed & it covered my blemishes. I highly recommend this foundation! As a freelance makeup artist, I will be purchasing several of these in multi skin tones to add to my kit!

This feels weightless and natural on the skin, it does blend nicely. The stick makes it easy to apply, I am usually not a fan of sticks they tend to be dry or cakey but I like this one! I had to apply two or three layers to get my desired coverage. Blemishes and discoloration still showed through one layer. The shade matches perfectly.

This foundation was super buildable, and very easy to blend. The only issue I had with it was that it’s difficult to apply the correct amount the first time. Like I said though, it’s buildable so even though it’s a cream and not liquid, you can still get the coverage you want. It also works very well with my skin which is combination.

I really like this foundation. I actually tried this before I tried tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation .I have combo skin and I tried it in the summer and fall when my skin was more oily. It worked well with my skin, didn’t really slide off and provided medium coverage. It’s good for my everyday makeup.

I love all tarte products but this is one of my absolute favorites. It’s so simple to use as it just glides on and the coverage is surprisingly amazing! 100% would recommend.

This was the first foundation stick I tried. I did a lot of research as to which brand I wanted to try and I heard a lot of amazing things about this foundation stick specifically. However it didn't work quite as well for me.. It broke up within the hour of being applied & I tried different setting powders, no powders, primers, etc. and just couldn't get it to work for me.

I just bought this product and am in love with it! QVC was having a great deal on a kit that included this and it was definitely worth it. It is very creamy and blends into the skin flawlessly, I used the Tarte foundation brush it came with. It lasted all day even in 90 degree humid weather. Would 100% buy it again

Very expensive for something with not that much product in it, seems like I would run out of it within a month. It’s a bit too greasy/oily for my taste but would be good for people with dryer skin.

What type of coverage is this. I really want to try a stick foundation but I don't love full coverage. I prefer a medium or sometimes a light:)

I have an extremely oily t-zone. I love full coverage to hide my dark spots and I expect a matte look. Would it meet my expectations?
