Swatches: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation (Ivory vs Light)

Many of you know already that I love Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. I have already posted an extensive review on it, which you can read here. I used the shade “Light” in my review, but recently picked up “Ivory” and wanted to do a quick swatch comparison of the two.

Review & Giveaway: Minerals Mate

Contest closed! Congratulations Elleisforlove!

This tray is one of the most versatile products I’ve discovered this year. Living in a 110° climate in the summer makes it very difficult for me to wear liquid foundation. To put it bluntly, my skin sucks ass. I need serious coverage and I need it to last throughout my 9-hour work day. I typically use mineral foundation all summer long because it can withstand perspiration and still give me the coverage that I need.

Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

If you’re a QVC junkie like me, you’ve probably seen this foundation on TV a time or two. This foundation launched back in March, 2011 and it’s been a hot commodity ever since. And until last month, the only place you could even buy it was on QVC. I was very excited to learn it’s now available both on Tarte’s website and at Sephora!

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Guess who picked up another makeup collection on QVC? Yeah.. this girl. It’s becoming a problem honestly lol. But to be fair, I did need to get a Balance N’ Brighten foundation in Fair, because the only shade I currently have is Porcelain and it’s waaaay to white for me nowadays. I guess I’m not the same pasty chick that I used to be ;) Plus, it’s just plain hard to turn down a Laura Geller collection under $50.
