My favourite foundation so far - I have typically dry skin and this product is great and moisturizing. It's long lasting but you do need to set it or sometimes it can move around. I will definitely be buying it again as I am almost out! I use it every single day. tarte Clay Stick Foundation

Review for: Light Beige more...
I received this as a sample from Sephora. Which is plenty of me to use for a while because I don't wear make up everyday. When I first used this I didn't really like it. It felt dry for some reason and it was too dark for my skin tone. But I have found a way to work with it by blending it in with BECCA First Light Priming Filter Face Primer I basically apply the stick and just put a couple of drops of the becca on top and blend it in with a beauty blender. It gives me a natural dewy look. I really enjoy it now and I'm able to blend it out and not make it too noticeable that it's a little too dark. I plan on buying the full size and the full size of the becca and using this as my go to make up look.

Review for: Medium Sand more...
Just purchased about a week ago, went in looking for something lightweight but full coverage and this does the job! It matched my skin to the T when blended, doesn't have an orange undertone and has so much product in the container. For the 40$ price tag it's definitely worth it.

Review for: Fair-Light Neutral more...
This stick foundation definitely lives up to the high claims. It's highly pigmented, last all day and it's so creamy which makes for a blendable application. My only issue is that you pay $40+ for a concealers worth of foundation! Even if I had double the income I have right now I couldn't justify repurchasing this foundation. So my solution is to solely use it as a high coverage concealer for special occasions and night outs. Thankfully I bought a shade too light for my skin tone so it's perfect as a concealer. I'm sorry but I just can't get over the price!:(

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
I had super high expectations for this foundation but it just isn't what I thought it would be. I thought it would be similar to my original Amazonian clay foundation and it just isn't. It's very creamy and the finish is beautiful... at first! Not long after wearing it, it settled into every line I have on my face. It's not a bad foundation but I am giving it 3 stars because I still prefer the original Amazonian clay!!! tarte Clay Stick Foundation

Review for: Fair-Light Neutral more...
I was excited to try this foundation after hearing good things but was left rather disappointed. The foundation itself is easy to apply and buildable to give more coverage. After applying bronzer and powder the foundation looked lovely, perfect for going for lunch with friends. After a few hours the foundation had separated and had gone all patchy on my forehead, nose and upper lip-not attractive. It's not a product I'd use again.

Please please read, this product is not great for my oily people's. This great for dry skin faces. I usually apply a little amount to face and use a beauty blender to blend nicely. Other ways I used this product is I purchase the Medium Neutral color and the Light Medium Neutral. So on the day's I am looking pale I use the darker shade and vise versa. It is full coverage too me. It is very creamy. If you are oily and really want to try apply small amounts only and wear definitely wear a primer and setting powder after go over the setting powder with a beauty blender to stay in place and make sure it does not get cakey

Review for: Fair Beige more...
Never in my life has my foundation looked even better at the end of the day until this wonderful, amazing foundation! I have combo soon but much more on the dry side so I was fully expecting this to be a disaster for me. This is also the first cream foundation that I have tried in about 7 years, and my early experiences with any creamy products where horrible, this had changed everything!

My skin is very dry everywhere around my nose, and I get very oily in my cheek and chin area. I am used to having flakes of makeup around nose and absolutely nothing left in my oily areas at the end of the day. This didn't budge, fade, melt, become transparent, crack, flake or anything!!!! My makeup was flawless, and actually looks even better as the day goes on and the natural oils activate the Amazonian clay.

Also a little goes a long way! I do two little lines on each cheek, a dab on my chin, and a swipe across my fivehead. I use a beauty blender damp and it blends out like nothing. I am used to using liquid foundations and would be blending for eternity, this blends out incredibly in a fraction of the time. Coverage is buildable but I have found I really love a one layer coverage with this, even on my Rosacea!

Review for: Light Beige more...
Buttery,creamy,good coverage- everything you want in a foundation correct? This is my new holy grail foundation. I've recently been having some skin issues( used to be oily and now I'm super dry) and this gives such a pretty natural glow to my skin. You could also use it to highlight and contour as well. It lasts a good amount of the day. I do lightly set it with powder. Price wise.. it's not bad but i don't wear foundation everyday. I do think it will last me a long time though. #nofilters

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:)
