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!

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

        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.

          All in all, a very nice coverage, but a few hrs. Later I had to reapply product, of course I did go out side on very humid days and did sweat it off.

              This primer is amazing! I struggle with a really red face, acne scars, and oiliness. This primer smooths out my face so well! I personally like it more than the POREfessional Primer that I own.

                  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).

                  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!
