I wanted to show you an exciting addition to tarte’s collection for summer today. This is the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Finishing Powder. However, it’s a little different than what you may be used to- that’s right, tarte’s best selling Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder is now available in compact form!

I have loved using the loose powder form of this finishing powder but it can be kind of a pain to use loose powder because it gets everywhere! I was very excited to see that it was now going to be available in a compact with a little brush that comes with it. 

tarte pressed finishing powder.jpgThis is the perfect product for setting a BB cream or foundation in the summer. It’s lightweight and leaves the skin with a matte finish. The only thing I would change is that the brush doesn’t deliver the product to my skin as well as I would hope. I feel like I need a denser brush, but I’m picky! In a pinch, if I was storing this in my purse, I would be perfectly happy with the provided brush.

I hope this stays within the permanent line! Do you use this finishing powder?

    I love that it’s in a pressed powder! My loose powder leaves my bathroom a mess every morning! I’ll have to give this a try 🙂

      I know, I always feel like some of it gets wasted when it’s loose!

    I love Tarte, it just does not love me at all. I’m not a sensitive person but something about Tarte just doesn’t agree with me. Except their blush and non Amazonian Clay items.

    This stuff has been a lifesaver. I can’t say enough good things about it! If you have oily skin then this is a must have.
