Foundation Face-off

Out of all the beauty products I think I love playing with foundation the most. Today I’m going to show you a comparison of two of my current most used foundations at the moment (I will be applying both the same way using a foundation flat kabuki brush) :

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Their claims:

MAC: A tenacious waterproof formula that can be used as a foundation or concealer, wearing for an unprecedented 24 hours. Neither rain nor tears can budge this oil-free watertight product that actually repels moisture from the surface of the face

Tarte: Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing, skin-perfecting formula with. It’s full-coverage and supremely blendable and buildable formula has a weightless texture and is available in a broad range of shades. Everyone can achieve skin that looks healthy and natural.


Both foundations are thick and creamy. Both come in a squeezable tube and product comes out with ease.


I did a quick video to show you the coverage I had already primed my face !


Mac has a higher coverage finish than Tarte and more of a flawless finish too!

Tarte you would need to continue putting more layers on for higher coverage


Mac outlasted Tarte on this one. Maybe it was the primer ?! Not sure but I had to touch up when I wore the Tarte more often than Mac! I had a oily t-zone quite soon after the Tarte.


I def prefer the Mac foundation, I heard such great things about Tarte so was surprised it didn’t come through for me!

Which do you prefer ??
