Better Together: Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation & Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

As a rule, I don’t really do full-coverage foundations. I equate the term “full-coverage” with masking or heavy. But I can be wrong. Tarte is giving new meaning to full-coverage with the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation, and it has the Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush to thank. While one without the other works, together, they are unstoppable. Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Foundation is a thicker, more dense formula. By using Tarte’s Foundation Brush, which has a dense, firm head of bristles, the Foundation goes on weightlessly. You can see it covering and working immediately but you don’t feel a thing. At all.

I tested this Foundation in many different ways. With my fingers, other foundation brushes (flat and fluffy) and Tarte’s brush is the best. I find I get the best results by dampening the bristles first and taking a small amount at a time. from the back of my hand. When the brush is completely dry, it tends to eat more product than it should.

Bottom line: these two products go together like a glass of wine and a bubble bath. Don’t split them up. They belong together.

One thought on “Better Together: Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation & Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush”

  1. I have been using this foundation & brush combo since it was introduced on QVC last year. I am totally in love with it to the point that I have abandoned all other foundations. You are absolutely correct, the magic is in the brush application & no matter how miserable I feel I can whip up a fabulous complextion in a snap. Although it is “full-coverage” I like to describe it more as “adjustable” because you can use more or less…depending on what’s going on. And this stuff STAYS on all day with no transfer.
