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

    As my summer tan was fading, I needed a product to help me transition from wearing a tinted moisturizer to my winter foundation. I had never used a BB cream before, but I'm sold. I may never wear foundation again. I love the feel and coverage of this product.

      This is my first time buying it. I was asking the assistant about bare minerals for my type of skin. He then asked have I ever tried Tarte and I told him no. He applied some on one cheek with a brush. I really liked the way my skin felt. The color was perfect and my skin was so smooth. It didn't feel sticky.

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

      Great for an all over light coverage. I like to mix this with more liquidy foundations for a smoother full coverage. Wouldn't recommend it for super oily skin. I only wish there were more than four shades.

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

            I like BB and CC creams that can stand alone but this product does not provide that much coverage at all. I've opted to use it as a bronzer. It does feel comfortable on the skin and it has a matte finish. Not worth the price at all, definitely will not purchase again.

                  I really love this. There's an amazing glow to my skin when I put it on. It's so lightweight, like a mousse when I put it on my skin. A little goes a long way. I put on my concealer over it and it all stay intact throughout the day, even on my oily t-zone. Love that it also has SPF. I use it for everyday wear, and I wish it came in a bigger container!

                  If you have dry skin, this product is probably not for you. If you have oily skin you may love it. I have typically normal skin and I have never had dry patches or problem areas before using this and my skin is now drier than ever. I really wanted to love this but it just wasn't for me. Decent coverage and the texture feels amazing.

                      A:

                      Since it's a shade from another brand, it's difficult to determine your perfect match but this primer comes in four skin-matching shades, ranging from fair (which is the lightest shade) to medium tan (which is the darkest).

                      This is a multi-tasking formula that provides medium coverage and primer benefits. Therefore, you don't need to wear a primer first!

                      Yes, the medium shade is quite dark. If you have fair skin, fair or light should work for you. We recommend stopping by your nearest Ulta Beauty to test the shades on your skin. Hope that helps!
