Product Review-Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

 I was like a little kid opening the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation box. And then there was feeling the amazing brush, all I can say is WOW. It should get an award for "best foundation brush." I was hesitant to buy it because I don't like the heavy feel of a full coverage foundation.

 Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation Set ($70 Value)

What it is: A long-lasting foundation powered by Amazonian clay.

What it does: Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing, skin-perfecting formula with UVA/UVB SPF 15. It's full coverage with a weightless texture. With a broad range of shades available and a supremely blendable and buildable formula, everyone can achieve skin that looks healthy and natural.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know: Whether oily, dry or combination, "skin-smart" Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to meet and address your skin concerns for makeup that wears better, longer, and truer. This revolutionary foundation reduces the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections and ensures a perfectly flawless complexion every time.
The coverage can be applied with the brush it comes with, a densely packed, yet fluffy foundation brush. While this isn't the traditional brush associated with applying foundation, it does a fantastic job of applying an airy amount of foundation
The brush manages to blend out edges and coverage, giving you a semi-matte fuller finish, almost like an airbrushed finish. You can also apply it with a beauty blender to achieve a slightly heavier coverage. Comes in 8 shades, and also formulated without mineral oil, paraben,phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate & cruelty free.


BETTER: good-for-you skincare benefits

clinical results- up to 12 hours of perfect wear time

Amazonian clay + pure pigments = truer color


My Thoughts-Your relationship with your foundation should be like any other relationship in your life--if it's not working out, don't force it. Every oil skin girl should have this foundation! This gives the most beautiful matte finish ever, and stays that way all day! I am really loving all of Tarte's Amazonian Clay products, but this is pure perfection! This foundation is a very thick consistency (think, clay mask texture). I have been using this daily for just over a month to make sure I get a true sense of how the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation will work for me. Love!!!! As other reviewers have stated, this gives a really nice finish, not necessarily glowy, not dead matte either. It looks very natural and my favorite thing about it is that it doesn't give me that orange/yellowy "edge" right by the bridge of my nose.....not sure if you know what I'm talking about but it seems that with almost any other foundation I use, BE, MAC, etc., no matter now much I blend, I end up with this line where my foundation ends right next to my eyes. Not with this stuff. I vary the application and am still experimenting. I usually start by dotting the foundation with my finger and lightly blending with my fingers, then I use the included brush more to finish it and fully blend

Fragrance Review- Rihanna Reb'l Fleur

Daring, sexy and truly memorable, Reb'l Fleur is as much in tune with Barbados-born Rihanna's roots as it is with the glamour of her present life in New York City."This fruity chypre is joyous yet intense, sophisticated yet marvelously surprising. Plump, delicious fruits, red berries, purple plums and juicy, ripe peaches make a delicious first impression. Then the heart opens into a lush hybrid hinting at Island Life, subtle yet intoxicating, blossoming with sumptuous florals. A passionate melody of Hawaiian Hibiscus flower, violet, tuberose and coconut water. Definitely sexy, the base notes linger, a beguiling, sensual melange. Vanilla, patchouli, amber and musk become a sultry chorus striking an unforgettable, emotional chord.

Reb'l Fleur was created for the Barbadian pop star Rihanna and its name comes from “Rebel Flower,” a nickname Rihanna’s grandmother gave to her as a child. Rebellious it is not, however. Reb’l Fleur threads the same ground as virtually all other celebrity fragrances marketed towards the teen to mid 20s market. There is a big plum and strawberry note, which manages to be simultaneously milky and sharp. Then there is the ubiquitous generic floral accord. The creamy, coconut notes give it a dense, opaque quality. The sensation of the mossy-woody notes paired with the equally ubiquitous cotton candy is somewhat softened by the lavish helpings of musk and vanilla. All of the elements are simply too familiar. It reminds me of nothing in particular, yet it smells like everything else out there. There is an element of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Narciso Rodriguez for Her, a hint of Vivienne Westwood Libertine, a whisper of Kylie Minogue Darling

  • Clean & Fresh
  • Draws Compliments
  • Great Smell
  • Great Value
  • Long-Lasting
  • Not Overpowering
  • Sensual
  • Sexy

  • None

Best Uses
  • Special Occasions

Thought-I was approached by a salesperson in at  Dept. Store and I was hesitant at first because in my mind, every celebrity has perfume so what makes this one any different. WOW!! let me tell you, this was a fragerance that was totally different and it smelled wonderful. The aroma is different and it becomes a conversation piece for me.I have gotten so many compliments when wearing this perfume and I don't want to smell it everyday and become overwelmed with the scent so it's only worn on special occasions.

Have Your Tried Any  Of Rihanna Perfumes?
