7 TARTE Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer
I’m not sure what it is about Amazonian clay, but all of Tarte’s products that contain it are nothing short of amazing. Take this bronzer for instance, it’s matte yet won’t leave your face looking dull or muddy and you can easily blend it and build it up. Another fab feature is that this bronzer is waterproof so you can rock it at the pool or beach and you’ll still be looking fierce even after a long day out. Available at Ulta for $30.
