Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation Stick Review


Hey Beauties!

I hope you had a great weekend! I was in DC for my nephews birthday and had a great time with my family. I went makeup free which was freeing but I felt kinda bare at the same time. As promised, I have been wearing Tarte’s Amazonian Foundation Stick for about 2 weeks and my review is  below.

1. It goes on smooth, BUT it wasn’t easy to blend. I usually use a beauty blender but it wasn’t easy to blend with it on my face already. I then used Bestidy brush to blend it and that made it a lot easier. I like using the beauty blenders because I can do it on the go and the blenders with handles are just more cumbersome to bring.

2. It left my skin looking ashy and a grey overtone. I have yellow undertones because I am a woman of color but this foundation matched my skin perfectly but still left my face looking ashy and on the “cooler” end. I didn’t like how my skin looked and it was not easy to take off either. That was a negative for me.

3. It did not leave a smooth finish. The areas near my nose were spotty and when I put extra foundation it made it worse. I had to blend that area with my hands which overall is annoying. The area around my nose just didn’t look even and I got annoyed on how much more product I had to put on.

Overall, I was let down by the Clay Stick foundation. I will still continue  just wearing concealer as I mostly just wear that anyway. Hope this was helpful. Have a great day!
