I have combination skin this meaning I have an Oily Tzone and dryness in certain parts of my face, plus my skin is very sensitive and acne prone so YEAH ! I got the whole package lol.
I roll around foundations a lot , because either they are too oily or too dry or just BLAH I just stormed my way AWAY from the MAC Matchmaster since it started to brake me out , thank God is was just when I had 1 or 2 applications.
I had my eye on 2 foundations the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation and Tarte Amazonian Clay. I walked around them for quite some time and I decided to get my Amazonian Clay from QVC since they had a gr8 deal 2 bottles plus the application brush for $48 when each foundation is $38.00 and the brush is around the $30's as well so yeah is like I got 1 1/2 for free lol ! like if you could part the brush in half lol ! oh well for me it was a nice steal.
I got the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation from the Laura Mercier counter inside Macys and nah I couldnt score any deal on that just the free gift with purchase but thats about it still payed $40 for it. YEAH they both are very pricey or at least for me but foundation is one thing I splurge on because is like the base for a beautiful canvas.
Ok lets start with Tarte Amazonian Clay will balance your skin due to the fact that it contains Clay and Clay has been around for many many years and been proven to help with skin conditions such as reducing the appearance of pores , minimizing discoloration and helps heal acne , of course this foundation is not targeted to heal acne yet it doesnt brake me out.
This foundation is super blendable and buildable so you can achieve any look you desire and yet it doesnt look cake'e.
The best part of this foundation regardless of the product itself is that it is CRUELTY FREE.
I love the wooden cap and the clean earthy look to the packaging and the actual product.
This is the application brush it came with very very nice , sturdy and gr8 for applying this foundation theyre the perfect match lol ! and I got it for free
This is the entire bundle and my shade is medium , usually Im light-medium BUT spring and summer are the upcoming seasons so yeah I have no idea how tan Ill be so I just played it safe , if I need a lighter color I can use my Laura Mercier of just add a tad bit of moisturizer.
This is how it came packaged from QVC very usual , just a bubble mailer
