Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer review

Today's review, my favourite everyday bb tinted moisturizer!

Product name: Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer 
Size & price: 50mL, RM142
Availability: Sephora Malaysia (here), Tarte's website (Amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer SPF 20)
Shades available: 8

Tarte ships to Malaysia directly, you can read my experience here: From Tarte USA to Malaysia

There are two versions of this product, one is with SPF, one is without SPF. I choose with SPF sebab dah tak payah pakai sunscreen dah. SPF 20 is enough for me. This product falls under foundation category in Tarte's website.

I prefer Tinted Moisturizer sebab texture dia macam moisturizer/lotion and it's lightweight tapi ada coverage. I don't really fancy full coverage, I feel like my skin can't breathe. (Perasan I sendiri je ni, mengada)

My shade is Light-Medium

Product description (from Tarte's website)

Squeezable plastic tube with a wood-ish cap. Easy to dispense. Picit je nanti dia keluar. The cap is also secured, tak payah risau tumpah ke apa ke

The scent is a bit off. I don't really like it. Bau macam sunscreen biasa tu, you know..

Light texture

The texture is quite creamy

Very sheer coverage but buildable

As you can see, the before and after picture. The coverage is very sheer. The finishing is quite dewy and looks natural. Looks like you're not wearing anything. It's like your own skin. I normally apply this with a sponge kalau rajin, and guna jari je kalau malas.

For me, it's enough to cover up any blemishes, although I still need a concealer. But at least I have the SPF protection so macam okay lah, I don't need a sunscreen. Just pakai this, pakai concealer, lipstick, and I'm done! For some extra glow, I'll wear the Tarte Brighter Days before applying this. 


It's good for everyday use, taknak berat sangat muka but you still want the coverage + sun protection so this one is really good enough for me. Although the name is tinted moisturizer, I still apply moisturizer before, sebab this thing is not moisturizing enough. Moisturizer WAJIB.

I bought this during the Sephora 20% sale so dapat murah, kalau nak bayar full price RM142 tu macam quite expensive for me, dah la coverage bebiasa je, takde lah magic sangat

  • Looks natural and very lightweight
  • Suitable for daily use
  • Has SPF - dah tak payah beli sunscreen lain dah kalau tak banyak outdoor activities, although it's better to have SPF 30. I wish they'll have SPF30 later please Tarte please
  • Dewy finish
  • Easy to apply, easy to blend
  • Cruelty-free brand

  • Quite expensive
  • Very minimal coverage

Yes if you have the budget, I think it suits all skin type (normal to dry is great but I think oily is ok too) but there's quite some reviews yang kata this product causes breakouts, naik jerawat etc etc so it's really scary. But I takde apa bad experience with this product, I love this. Soooooo, it really depends on you guys lah. I would repurchase kalau tak jumpa tinted moisturizer yang lagi best.
