Review - Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation

Im finally trying to get back into  blogging I blame football and laziness for my lack of posts. I brought the foundation back when I was in uni about April time so I've had a good use of this. Now I not to much of a fan of powder foundation because I think they can get to cake and powdery on me and the only powder foundation I've ever used is the Mac studio fix foundation and that broke me out, so naturally I never went back to powdered foundation. When I saw bloggers raving about this especially Estée review I thought I would give powdered foundation another try.

Tarte claims

"Powered by Amazonian clay enriched with the Earth’s natural, light-reflecting gemstones, this moisture-rich powder buffs on smoothly for waterproof, 12-hour coverage that won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles. This innovative foundation also employs a custom mesh delivery system for a fool-proof, mess-free application every time."  

First of all I love the tarte packaging the wooden top is cute and everyone knows I'm a sucker for good packaging, when I first tried this I wasn't to sure if I liked it because I was using it sparingly as I didn't know how heavy to go with it because I was too scared it would look cakey, but once I notice how it just melted into my skin it really does mesh with the natural oils on your skin making it look like a second layer of skin but more even and its super lightweight. So after I realise how good it looked the next day I packed on the foundation a bit more and so it gave me a more flawless coverage. It lasts about 10 hours on me, it did pretty well on my skin it did look a bit oily but nothing a bit of powder can't solve. It has a beautiful velvety texture infact straight after I use it my skin feel so soft and it doesn't seem like I have foundation on. The coverage is build able you can go light or heavy depending on what coverage you want, however I do need to use concealer on blemishes and dark circles which is pretty normal with most foundations I use. It has a mesh on top to sieve the product through which is pretty cool but a downside to this is that you are not aware of the amount of product left. The indent in the lid stops any spillage which is great for when your in a hurry as it doesn't just fall everywhere. The variations of colours available is pretty good I got the light beige (nw20 in mac) I actually matched it through the foundation matrix on temptalia which I find great for people who don't have a counter or an available sample to use. 
one downside to this is the price its £22.52 for 0.247oz which is quite a lot for what your getting.

Other than that I really like this foundation as its easy, lightweight, and not cakey on me. The price maybe a downfall but for how good it feels on my skin and coverage I don't really mind. The packaging although cute is a bit bulky to carry around with me, but because of its lasting power thats not too much of a problem.

any of you tired a powder foundation and fell in love ??
