Keeps you matte all day. A little messy to use, even with a powder brush, but the texture is great and it leaves your skin smooth.

I love everything in Tarte's Amazonian Clay line. The only reason I can't give this product a full 5 stars is because of the price.

I have a pretty oily T-zone and tend to get cakey around my nose and forehead if I apply too much powder. Does this powder get cakey easily?
