I tried the new Tarte Amazonian clay gem powder foundation in 22S light sand and is described as “Talc-free, loose powder foundation with natural finish”
I had to go a shade lighter, 22S, than I would normally, 26N, because they were sold out (and still are) of that shade.
I was in a rush when I applied this and I didn’t have time to test it before going ham on my face.
I used the puff that comes with the powder and applied it at my undereye area thinking I would be able to swipe off excess powder. WRONG. This powder stuck to my skin like it was painted on.
I spent about five minutes switching between a brush and puff trying to blend off the powder and blending it onto the rest of my face.
It ended up looking OK, even though it felt like solidified dough on my face.
Since then I’ve used it again a couple of times, each time carefully patting a small amount on my skin.
I don’t think it’s anything groundbreaking; maybe I have to use it more to really decide.
