Products & Colour: 
The Tarte Clay Stick Foundation in Fair Neutral is a pale neutral foundation with a very subtle peach undertone. For me, the shade is a winter one while leaning slightly more pink on my olive skin for the start of summer. This is the shade I recommend for my pale redhead girls.

The formula of the Tarte Clay Stick Foundation is very creamy and much less dry compared to Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation and Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick which both emphasised the texture of my skin sadly (and the reason why I didn't want to buy the full size for review).

The formula has a very soft and light finish to the skin and didn't add texture to my skin. But it stays very dewy without a setting powder and I like a cream foundation that drys down slightly like the Mehron Celebré Pro HD Make-Up. This foundation really needs to be set with a powder to have that 12-hour wear claim time but that is not usually with cream foundations.

Wear: Lasts 8-9 hours on bare skin before any noticeable fading, But it does last longer over a primer and with a setting powder.

Coverage was good. I took out my redness and unevenness for the most par with my checks still looking slightly pink. My blemishes are fairly covered but still needs concealer to get rid of the last of the redness. My freckles are still visible but faded as well. It caught on my serious dry patches (my nose was peeling) But other dry spots were forgiving.

What I did notice and wasn't expect that the pores on my cheeks looked filled in. I can even that out more with the product to concealer more of the redness of my cheeks and with a setting powder. But it was a strange occurrence I wanted to mention and was probably made more noticeable due to the pale colour not match my face (but it matches my neck).

I personally find these higher end and drugstore cream foundations all slightly disappointing simply because you can find better and more pigmented cream foundation in the Makeup industry cosmetics like RMCA, Kryolan, Ben Nye, Graftobean and my personal favourite for my dry-normal skin Mehron.

That said these actually work better with a primer and setting powder to even out the texture of your skin and act as a barrier for any dry patches. This one still gets a pass from me but it's still not up there in my Holy Grail tier.
