The Internet Made Me Do It | Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation

by - January 17, 2015






Welcome to a new segment on my blog where I justify purchases that I make and things that I do, by saying that the internet made me do it. First up on the roster is the very popular, Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation (try saying that 10 times fast, it is quite the mouthful). 
First let me say that I realize that I'm like 11 months late on the craze of this stuff, and I'm sorry. But I'm a poor college student, and as much as I would like to pretend I have the money to buy all of the popular makeup fads out there, I most definately don't. 
However, I have been lusting over this foundation for a very, very long time, and since this year I am determined to become VIB rouge at Sephora, I decided it was time to bite the bullet and just get it. 

Boy, oh boy, do I wish I had gotten this earlier, because it is AH-MAZING. 
My skin is not, nor has it ever been the greatest. I am a young person, I eat like crap sometimes and I get stressed out. Which means that my skin is often blotchy and I have bumps, pimples and zits, oh my! So I have had my reservations about a mineral/powder foundation. I always figured that powder foundation would only work on people who already had flawless skin, and didn't need a lot of coverage like I often do. But, as per usual, I was wrong. This stuff is true to its name and it really is a full coverage foundation. And not only that, but it is so light on my skin and doesn't make your face look or feel cakey, which is often the downside of other liquid "full coverage" foundations. 

I am in the shade light beige (pause for a moment of silence because I'm so sad that I've officially lost all of my tan colour), which as you can tell by the picture, is for light skin with pink undertones. I guess that describes my skin tone, I'm trusting the lady in Sephora who kind of hurridly told me that this was the one I should get. I guess even in a rush, they know their stuff because it is a pretty good match. 

I'm also glad that I decided to splurge on the airbuki (adorable name) brush as well. I'm sure that another brush might work just as well, and for much less money, but when I commit to something I really commit to the whole thing. I wanted the whole experience of this foundation, so that obviously meant shelling out another 30$ for the brush right?

Let's be 100% real here, because I always will be with y'all. This foundation is expensive. I mean you'll be hard pressed to walk into Sephora and find something that isn't. But with that said, I personally think it's worth it. Sometimes when it comes to makeup you're just paying for the name. But sometimes you'll find a product that isn't just pricey because it's a fancy brand name, it's pricey because it's of great quality. I really do think that this foundation is one of those products. I definately think that this will be a repurchase when the time comes. 

Peace and Blessin's
