    Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    When I ran out of the product I was using as my daily SPF non-oily moisturizer, I decided to try a tinted one. Didn't know which to buy, so bought a few different ones I found at my local Ulta to try and compare. The other brands were not at all acceptable. One was too chalky and dry. The other one felt too oily. But this one turned out to be just right! I plan to stick with this one. I am very pleased with it.

            I'm a natural make up type. This is light and easy to apply. I have freckles and you can still see them after applied but it just evens out my skin tone. Feels great and it's super light. Love this!

              So this product is a great under makeup primer if you like the smoothing effect without it being overly silicone-y.... but I absolutely LOVE this product as a sunscreen in the summer! It evens my skin tone, lasts all day even through sweat/while boating, and SPF 30 is the perfect amount for my skin, as I do tan well. Also, I have acne prone skin that doesn't do too well with SPF and this one doesn't break me out!

                      I recently got a new job that requires me to be outdoors in the heat and sun so I purchased this product (which has SPF as well) to use in place of foundation. It's a very, very light coverage but it does vastly improve the texture of my skin and make blemishes less noticable. It also blends out easily with my fingers, making it a speedy application if you're running late. My oiliness does breakthrough if I don't use a mattifying primer on my T-Zone underneath this BB but I'm perfectly okay with that.

                          Since that shade is from another brand, it's difficult to determine your exact match. Check out the online shade descriptions or stop by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test the shades on your skin!

                        I currently use the tarte gel foundation and the coverage is great. Throughout the day my face gets oily and the foundation rubs off. Should I use a primer or a setting powder? If so which one is best for oily skin?

                        Also, I want something from tarte that i can put on quick and have coverage like a one step process. which would you recommend? I do not have an ulta near me.
