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

    I have very sensitive skin. Every foundation I have tried has irritated my skin. I went to Ulta explained my issues to one of the employees who gave me a mini makeover. She suggested that using this product under foundation would eliminate the irritation and it works for me. I can now wear foundation which I haven't been able to do for years. This product is a game changer for me.

            I love this makeup!! I put it on in the morning and may touch it up later in the day. I feel like it makes my skin look tighter and brighter. When I reapply it looks fresh and new and not like I have caked on makeup.

                Shew... this has got to be one of the worst beauty balms that I have ever used. It does not blend in well with my skin. It just sits on top on my face and looks cakey. It also puts my pores on high display - like my pores are saying hi to everyone I walk by they are so noticeable. It also leaves my face feeling oily. I have put this balm on using a blending sponge, brush, and my fingers. None of these make any difference in its appearance on my skin. This product is not for me. I am 33 years old and have combination skin.

                          I have been searching for a lightweight foundation/primer to wear under lightweight powder. It's not heavy and goes on very smoothly and doesn't settle into fine lines (I'm mid 40's). So many foundations I've tried are too heavy and tend to settle into fine lines making them even more obvious. It makes my skin look more finished. It's long lasting when set with powder. I haven't worn it in warmer temps yet so I'll be curious to see how well it holds then. Extremely pleased with my purchase.

                              Yes! You could try one of our smooth operator Amazonian clay setting powders. There are translucent loose & pressed versions, along with a tinted pressed version if you're looking for a little more coverage.

                            If you are in the shade light for this bb cream, what tarte shape tape shade would you use? (For those who own both the bb cream and the shape tape) I heard that the shape tape colors oxidizes and changes to a darker color once applied so I'm wondering if I should purchase fair or light. I am a cool tone (I prefer the concealer not to be yellow or pinkish).
