I consider this to be a medium to full coverage foundation. It really depends on how you apply it though. When I first got it, I just applied with my fingers and it didn't look so great and the coverage was only ok. I then tried it with my Sigma F80 brush and wow! I have giant pores and it makes my skin look so smooth! I have a few sun spots/freckles that can still be seen through the foundation but I'm sure I can cover it up with concealer or just use some extra foundation.
I would consider this full coverage. Or really close to it. It honestly covers so much, and it is buildable as well. You don't even need a lot -- I got a sample to try and I was surprised when I looked at it this morning because there was still almost the same amount left over after just one application lol
Definitely try this out if you need help covering hyperpigmentation. If you use MUFE's duo mat powder over this, you won't be disappointed. My skin looks so smooth and the coverage is unbelievable with the two of these. Before the powder, it's good but not great. With the powder... amazing :D

Like previous comments, I wouldn't consider this to be a full coverage but more Medium to Light coverage. This foundation is more about the care/treatment of your skin rather than masking and hiding imperfections completely as would a full coverage foundation would.
It's main component is clay which will soak up oil yet at the same time, be hydrating enough to make the skin look supple and natural if blended with a soft brush afterwards, not thick and cakey. That's my experience with using it. If you don't use a soft brush to blend after, you will notice some streaks so don't forget this step if you want the desired airbrush effect.
Upon first application, it seems to go on matte-like with a fuller coverage but as the day goes on, it appears to let the skin breathe and the natural oils of the skin ressurface. Nothing that can't be blotted up with a Starbucks napkin and shouldn't be a major concern. The finish is very natural and I would reccommend using the Tarte clay finishing powder to set it - a good combo. Hope this helps!

I definitely don't consider this foundation to be full coverage. Honestly, I'm not sure why they are marketing this as such. I would say that it's a medium coverage foundation at most.
If you want it to build up the coverage, I recommend applying it with your fingers. You have to be careful though, it can look rather heavy and even slightly cakey when applied with fingertips.

I do consider this to be full coverage... but I think it may depend on how you apply it also. It's recommended to be applied with the Tarte airbrush foundation brush, which I have used and do like. I feel it does give a full coverage that way. I also apply it with my fingers, which I get more of a light to medium coverage with. It is buildable though. It's definitely not a "light" coverage like a Tinted Moisturizer is.
Honestly, I consider it to be medium coverage. I have old acne scars that aren't totally covered by this foundation. It is not as sheer as Smooth Operator though.
I dont consider this to be full coverage. I think it is light to medium coverage. It covers my redness, but I have to use a seperate concealer for my acne and acne scars. And yes it has silicones.
