Review: Tarte Clay Stick Foundation

Happy Saturday Lovelies, I hope all of you had a good week. Recently Tarte came out with their new Amazonian Clay Foundation Stick, I ordered it the day it came out. That’s what today’s post is about, a first impression/review of the new stick foundation.

Now I went in wanting to LOVE this foundation and I gave it a couple of tries, however I just don’t feel that it lived up to the Amazonian Clay Products that Tarte puts out. I love their full-coverage Amazonian clay foundation, its one of my favorite, so the thought of this being in a stick was just awesome.

I finished apply all my makeup at about 9am Friday 6/2 and right after application the foundation looked and felt nice, it did settle into my lines under my eyes, but other than that I was happy.

Around 11am the foundation was starting to show my pores, separate slightly, and rub off my nose, I didn’t see any sort of matte finish like the website claimed. I was starting to get a little bummed since it had only been 2 hours and I hadn’t really done much but ride in the car.

My final check in time was at 2pm and when I took time to look at my face I was quite disappointed with what I saw. It looked as if I had been wiping my face off all day, but I hadn’t touched my face since I finished my makeup at 9am. The foundation had separated and just disappeared in some places, like my forehead, chin, sides of my nose and cheeks.

Final Thoughts
:

The stick foundation does not live up to the claims on Tarte’s website. It did not last 12-hour, it wasn’t “weightless” and it wasn’t matte. Once I had all the foundation blended it felt heaven and sticky, I did give it a fighting chance with a setting powder(the one I always use) and a setting spray. I only wore this foundation for 5 hours and it was just like I wiped most of it off. So is it worth $39? No. Would I purchase again? No. Do I recommend this foundation? No.
