Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

My last review of Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation was a rave, so of course
my next move is to go out and buy the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation and give it a go in hopes of falling in love all over again. I am normally quite uninterested to full coverage foundation as most I've tried are heavy, settle into fine lines after about six hours and can look a bit cakey. Tarte has done it, they have created a full coverage, buildable foundation that is not heavy, cakey or unnatural.
  My skin has been a little congested and spotty this last week, thus my skin is not 
looking its best, a perfect time to test a full coverage foundation I suppose. I must say I never thought I'd be putting my makeup free face on the internet...but here we are. 
This is a smooth foundation that blends beautifully and lasts amazingly.
I wore it to work the other night when I was closing the store which means wiping down counters and mopping floors and a bit of dewiness on my brow (that's a lady like way of sweating. haha). Through all of that my makeup looked fairly good, especially considering I applied it at about 11:00am and I finished my work day at 1:00am. I would say that this would be beautiful for a wedding or a night out as it is quite naturally flawless (an oxymoron), but it does have an SPF 15 which means camera flash back, AKA ghost face. It is a lovely day foundation if there will be no flash photography. I have the shade Light Neutral (light skin with pink and yellow undertones) and it is a perfect match for me. I do wish that it didn't have an SPF because I would like to use this for when I do other peoples makeup for special events. Other than that I love this foundation and have been using it a lot.

Hope this has been a pleasant read for you and that it has helped you in your quest for
the perfect makeup bag. If you did enjoy this read please follow, like and comment! If you have a blog leave the link in the comments and I'll give it a look too.
