Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour vs Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

Hello Everyone:

Fall is just around the corner, even though here in California it will probably feel like summer all the way through the end of September.  I sure hope not.  I want to experience all seasons again.

Today's post is about full coverage foundations.  I purchased the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation as well as the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation.

First let me say that both of these foundations have an amazing coverage, full coverage definitely! The Tarte brand went on very nice and did not feel heavy when applying with a brush (I used the real technique brush). You definitely need to keep buffing the product with your brush to get a nice finish.  I wore this to a wedding and after about 5 hours I noticed it was cakey on me.  I don't know if it was the weather, it was rather humid that day, or just the product.  I did use finishing powder and sprayed my trusty Skindinavia Finishing Spray, like I normally do.

The following week I tried the Laura Mecier Silk Creme Foundation, again full coverage, applied with a brush (same brush "real technique" - I did wash it LOL!) It went on smoothly and very light. I used Hourglass product for the finishing powder and the Skindinavia Finishing Spray like I normally do.  I really liked how this look came out.  I received a lot of complements that my skinned looked healthy and I looked very pretty.  Hmmm!

After my initial try of both products the Laura Mercier lasted long and held up well.  I will definitely give the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour another try.  I am hoping it was just the weather.

I will definitely let you know what I decide.  Laura Mercier is definitely a keeper in my collection!
Here is a picture of both products Tarte on the left hand side and Laura Mercier on the right hand side.

Until next time! Take care of everyone!
