TARTE Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (Loose)

Why are the ingredients different on Sephora vs. TARTE site?

Is Sephora getting a different product in the same packaging?

Hi beauty4ashes,

 

I just checked with our Distribution Center and they have advised me that the ingredient listing for this product is: silica, talc, polymethylsilsesquioxane, phenoxyethanol, dimethicone, lysophosphatidic acid,
Lecithin, lysolecithin, kaolin.This is specifically for item #1261114. I don't know if the brand changed their formulation or if we will be getting a new formulation of this powder, but this is what I was able to find out for you today. I will have the product description changed on our website to include this revised ingredient listing. 

Best,
Randee

So, the ingredients/formulations did change since I first purchased the loose "TARTE Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder." <---that's what the box says, didn't have  "Smooth Operator" written anywhere on the box yet it's on the product container.

 

Remember the limited edition Aqualiilies?

Ingredients: Silica, Kaolin, Lecithin, Lysophosphatidic Acid, Lysolecithin. 

 

The NEW list/order of ingredients: Silica, Talc, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone, Lysophosphatidic Acid, Lecithin, Lysolecithin, Kaolin.

 

Is the sell-out the reason for the reduced the quality of this TARTE product?

TARTE seems to have added a known filler, two forms of silicone, and a preservative. 

 

Stuff like this is rather deceptive especially when products claim to not contain a 'spelled out word' yet in the language of chemists, it's basically the same thing just spelled differently. I know we all put stuff all over our bodies, eat/drink foods daily knowing the risks. I just took a particular interest since the sell-out & the fact the product is manufactured in China where regulations are well...self-explanatory.

 

Thanks for the updated actual ingredient list.

I'm curious to know if this applies to newer TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes, too. I've heard varying complaints that the newer releases in that line are not nearly as nice as the older shades.

Re: TARTE Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (Loose)

Me too. Plus, "Amazonian Clay" is such a vague description. Who knows exactly how much 'clay' is actually formulated in TARTE products now since the sell-out. Maybe more mud & other sediments now are changing the quality of all TARTE products. I wish I knew the emoticon for mad face! So, sad face it is! :smileysad:

P.S. I still have the limited edition one that came in a different design loose powder container. I have the box some where since I keep them...another OCD thing besides saving all my Sephora bags.

 

I wonder if the ingredients changed after the original owner sold out?
