Well, what do you know...it's a new blog post up in where? UP IN HERE. As you can see, pictured above is not the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer I have raved about for years and talked about in a previous blogpost - I know people, shock horror. Recently I have decided to shake things up a bit and try something new, and after a good hour browsing the shelves of my local Ulta Beauty as you do, I decided upon Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation. I had heard of this foundation several times before, most notably recommended by the lovely Estée of essiebutton, and decided to just give it a whirl. You know, why not just go wild? Yes - change of base constitutes "going wild" material in the Annesque household.
This foundation is very different than my two most frequented choices of base (the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude and NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Gobi). Here are some of the reasons I have been choosing Tarte over the rest:
♥ It glides on smoothly over imperfections and provides medium/full build-able coverage.
♥ It is a Vegan product made without animal testing.
♥ It comes in cute packaging with a bamboo detailed twist cap.
♥ It is oil-free but does not dry out my skin.
♥ The color Light Neutral is a perfect fit to my skin tone - and there are many shades to choose from.
♥ It feels soft on my skin - not sticky, patchy or oily like others I've tried.
♥ Very natural matte finish without making the skin look flat or dull.
♥ There is loads of product in the bottle - I reckon it will last me a good while.
♥ Despite great coverage and thick creamy texture, it feels light on my skin.
♥ It has SPF 15 - Mom would be real proud.
