Love this product

I use the TARTE Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder almost every time I wear foundation now. I use ELDW liquid foundation and this powder goes on beautifully over it for a smooth pore-less look. I have a few texture issues and oiliness with my skin and my foundation looks great all day. I put it all over my liquid foundation and cheek colour with a fluffy brush to blend everything in and create a smooth uniform texture. Not sure about the flashback issue as I just use it for my face to look put-together all day at work.

Okay but not the greatest I've tried

I feel I have the shiniest T-zone known to mankind so I'm on the constant lookout for a  setting powder that will keep me shine-free. I work long 12hr shifts so it's also got to last. I bought this after seeing the positive reviews online. It does an ok job at setting my foundation but the texture isn't as smooth as I like. It also says its translucent but I have a darker complexion so I find it still visible on my skin. Plus it takes ages to get enough product out of the container.

Tarte!

Gives you a poreless effect once applied. However it must be applied light handedly as it is hard to blend out sometimes,  I did not experience flashback in photos even though I baked with this powder.  If used sparingly can give a flawless effect.  Love it.

Hmmm.....

Well. First off - it does seem to do what it claims to do. My make up definitely stayed more in place after using this product and it does look better than just the foundation alone. Translucent powder also is good for all skin tones :D But what I really think this product is, is not a finishing powder like it claims. nor a setting powder. The holding powder is not good enough to call it a setting powder(while I don't have oily enough skin nor bad enough foundation to prove it's true setting power), the finish is also just... pretty normal. Pretty average. Maybe it's because I'm comparing this to my MAC mineralise finishing powder, which is AH-MAH-ZING~~ the MAC truly makes me look like I'm glowing and radiating healthy skin. While I don't haha. This one... It's just... sitting there looking a little better than with just foundation alone and lasting long enough that I don't complain at the end of the day. :) I don't take flash photography so I can't speak for the flashback - but hey! If you live a regular lifestyle like me, not under harsh lighting in model photoshoots, you don't need to consider that! This is pretty good! :D But for the price point... Meh. A little too pricey. For a similar price, I'd rather you get the MAC :) Or maybe you prefer this! You gotta try to really know 😂

Tarte Smooth Operator

This loose powder gives me small bumps on the areas that i used on my face. It does not help in oil control as well. Definitely not worth the hype. Will not recommend to others and not worth the money to spend on. Better to purchase laura mercier / MUFE loose powder.

Good overall, flashback

This is a good finishing powder, and can give you a great flawless and poreless effect. However it must be applied very lightly, as one its on it's hard to blend out, and you can get lines of setting powder. It also has a fair amount of flashback in photos.

Sephora works best with portrait mode.
