I have been seeing videos about the Amazonian Clay foundation by Tarte. Last Monday I went to Ulta to buy it. I tend to be budget friendly when it comes to buying foundation. I usually buy Loreal or a BB cream by Garnier or Ponds. I decided to splurge a little. I think we all need to spoiled every once in a while.So when I went to Ulta, there wasn't really anybody on the floor to help me match my color. I ended up getting medium tan honey. An associate told me I could return it if it was not my right shade as long as I had my receipt. I tried it out a few days later and loved the coverage and feel but the color was not my shade. It was actually way to light for me. I went back this week to exchange it and to get my free birthday gift from ULTA. If you read my birthday post I had to get an email from Ulta and print it out to receive my free birthday gift. I called their customer service number and the operator emailed it to me right away. So I printed that out and was on my way to Ulta. This time
I chose the shade tan-deep-sand ( tan to deep skin with yellow undertones). I also had one of the girls test it on me as well. I really didn't want to spend $32.00 on their brush so I bought the Real Techniques expert face brush. I bought the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Finishing powder in translucent. This is my first time using these product but so far I love the finish of both the foundation and powder. Although I did make a big mess using the loose powder. Here are some pictures of my face using the products.
|Notice the zit on my cheek. One reason I chose the Amazonian Clay foundation is because I have spots under my eyes and cheeks that I want to try to cover up with out using so many products.|

|as you can see the foundation concealed the zit and gave me a even complexion. It didn't cover the spots completely but it did even out my skin tone.|
|This is look after applying the finishing powder.|
And this is the completed look. Even though the foundation is full coverage; it does not feel thick. It feels natural.
This is the free CK one Mascara in black. Its a full size product. Just remember to print your birthday email to receive this.
|These are the products I used today.|
I have been wearing this foundation for a little over 7 hours. So far I love it. Yes I am oily on my T-zone but thats normal for me. I have not touched up my makeup since applying it this morning.
