I am super pale so its really hard to find the right foundation (colour) for me. I also have acne prone skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, and some dry patches on my blemishes. I have literally tried out sooooo many foundations and I can't seem to find the right one :( Should I try this one out? I went to Sephora yesterday and the clerk suggested the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation for me so I put it on today and it's not full coverage and you can see my dry patches! Please help ugh :(:(:(:(

This product isn't good for acne-prone skin. It contains Polyglyceryl-3-Diisostearate which is known to cause break outs. Unfortunately, most of the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation products cause acne also. I'm not sure which foundation you used, but if you used the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation, for example it contains Potassium chloride which is also known to cause break outs.
A good foundation I've used so far that's high coverage & doesn't contain ingredients that cause break outs is Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.

I have the same skin problems you do, and I am also young. I was using a sample of the Tarte foundation for awhile, but it made my skin look dry and wasn't full coverage. I asked for a sample of this foundation simply because of the price, and I wanted to make sure of the color. I fell in love with the coverage and texture of this foundation, but because I am pale, the color I was matched with at first was slightly too "orange". I then went back to Sephora, and the clerk re-matched me with the shade "Ivory" and that's perfect for my light skin, and doesn't turn orange. I would definitely recommend this foundation! Good luck!

I have dry skin and I loooove this foundation. I also have some acne issues and the coverage of this product is more than great!! I don't even have to use concealer anymore, except for under my eyes because I like the brightening effect. My skin is very pale as well. When I was matched for this foundation, the sales associate recommended the shade ivory nude to me and personally, I like the shade on my skin tone. Try this foundation out. I can easily say that it's my favorite foundation out there!

I use this, but I have older, combination skin. It's full coverage so it will cover your acne, but it might cake up. What about trying the Double Wear Light, which comes in a convenient tube? I often see it praised by youtubers in their 20s with acne prone skin, along with the Clinque one for blemish-prone skin. Good luck.

I also tried tart's foundation and found it did not work for me! I seem to have some of the same skin issues as you, and I truly do love the double wear. I asked for a sample and tried it for a couple days and I was sold.
