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

I have oily skin and I was so excited to try this, but unfortunately I had to give it up for one reason -- it clung to every single dry spot and made me flake so badly, and this coming from someone who has super oily skin. However, the texture was super smooth, almost mousse-y, felt great on the skin, pretty great coverage for a BB cream, mattifying, and blended well. I never wore it as a primer, just a BB cream. Given the other reviews and the great way it felt, I'd definitely give it a whirl, but I wouldn't pay full price just in case.

        I was recommended this and am now forever indebted to my friend for this. I looovvee it. Its very easy to apply with any applicator and hides all of my acne scars with a natural look which is my ultimate goal. Whats better too if you want a move coverage you just add more it's literally that simple. Only disapointment is that there aren't that many shades, but its pretty simple to figure out what will work best.

            This is my go to product for everyday makeup, it hides imperfections well without having to use a foundation.Definitely a more natural look and lightweight on the skin. I have sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all, It's my favorite, I've gone thru at least 4 tubes already!

                I am a very very pale person, and struggled to find a BB cream that didn't make me look like an Oompa Lumpa. Most drugstore BBs left me with an orange tint, while the high end were to dark for me. I tried this out as a last ditch effort and it came through for me!
                I wear the color fair, and it evens out my skin beautifully. This is great if you have red cheeks and are looking just to even your skin tone during the day. I use it daily, and can't get enough.

                        This primer lasts for 12 hours so it should be a good option for you. If you're looking for something with fuller coverage, check out our Amazonian clay full coverage foundation SPF 30.

                        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.

                      Could i still use my foundation with the Tarte BB cream or it has to be used on its own? Would you recommend it with a powder only? Or could i use it just like a primer then my foundation on top and to set with powder?
