Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation vs. Colored Clay Foundcealer

After a recent review of Tarte's Colored Clay Foundcealer, a few readers and viewers asked about how it compares to some of Tarte's more well known foundations. First up: the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

This foundation promises 12-hour full coverage wear, and my shade is Fair Light Honey. While you can find all shades at ULTA for $38, QVC offers a set with a select few shades, along with a kabuki brush for the same price. This is definitely a layer-able foundation that provides medium to full coverage without clinging to dry spots, or accentuating oily areas. Throughout wear, it did a great job at controlling oil and looks nearly 100% in tact at the end of a 10 hour day. The verdict: highly recommend for those that like a nearly full coverage that helps control excess shine.

Compared to the Colored Clay Foundcealer, the Full Coverage Foundation provides more coverage, but lacks the color correcting capabilities - something I noticed most in the dark circles I develop in my undereye area. Additionally, despite claiming to be a 2-in-1 foundation and concealer, it provides lighter coverage than the Tarte's Full Coverage foundation, and didn't do much in the way of controlling shine throughout the day. 

Bottom line: If you're looking for a color-correcting base that provides light to medium coverage, and is best suited for dry or combination skin, the Founcealer is for you. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a full coverage foundation suited for combination to oily skin, the Full Coverage Foundation is your pick!

What's your favorite Tarte foundation?
