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.

I recently received a sample of this product and loved it! I plan on purchasing the full foundation stick when I'm finished with my most recent foundation. I love that it's easy to apply. I recommended this product to a few girlfriends to try out

Review for: Medium Neutral
First I picked up Tan Sand and tried it for a day. Color was a bit too dark so I realized I chose a wrong color so I went back to exchange it. I tried Medium Neutral at the store but it was a bit too light. Sephora staffs and I agreed that I'm perfectly in between Medium Neutral and Tan Sand so they suggested to get 2 of them or wait till new shades come up. (I'm perfect match to MUFE Stick Y405) I really really wanted to love this but unfortunately I had to return it. Such a bummer. As for the wear test it felt pretty good. Creamy but light, covers decent and it felt close to MUFE stick foundation except this might not lasts long compare to MUFE. I think this stick foundation is more ideal to dry skin like mine. Oily to Convo peeps might hate it. Tarte, please please make more shades soon!

(Left Top to Bottom) MUFE Y405 [*my perfect match], Tarte stick Medium Neutral, Tarte stick Medium Sand (Right Top to Bottom) Tarte stick Tan Sand, Tarte stick Tan Deep Honey

Review for: Medium Neutral
This just wasn’t a fave for me. It’s the most oily of all the formulas of foundation . I’ll use it in the winter , but it’s not a foundation I’ll use in the summer. It’s easy to apply . Must be set with a powder .

I wanted to love this as much as I love all of my other Tarte products, but this was not good for textured skin or oily skin. It was patchy, clung to imperfections, and oily skin will shed this off in an hour.

The price is way over price for this king of product but I do think its worth the buy. Its so easy to use and blends very well. It makes my skin look good and feel good. It feels light on my face!

Review for: Tan Sand
This is one of the best stick foundations that I have tried. It is easy to to apply and so creamy on your skin. It does transfer a little bit so I always set mine with either a powder or a spray!

Review for: Light Medium Beige
For someone with dry skin this is such a beautiful foundation! It keeps you hydrating without it looking to cakey and with a powder on top such a full coverage matte with a slight dewy glow to it

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?
