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

    I have used this product off and on for a couple of years, but whenever summer comes around this is a must have for me! In the winter, I'm okay with wearing full coverage foundation but in the summer I like to wear something that is lighter feeling and this is what I always come back to! It has a nice semi matte/natural finish (depending on the primer you use with it). I wear it alone because if you use it as a primer it can start to look a little cakey with another foundation on top. High SPF is good for summer wear, also. If you have combo skin I would defintely reccomend using a setting powder and spray just so that around the t zone it doesn't look too shiny. Other than that, this is one of my absolute favorite face products!

        I heard great things, but this bb "tint", but it isn't a tint at all! iIstead I got a moussey foundation that sucks. I tried a brush, but it left streaks I tried the beauty blender, but it left splotches ugh! I threw it away b/c it was so frustrating to use. Even w/ or w/o primer! I have dry to normal skin, the Maybelline mousse foundation applied better.

          I was using the tarte CC clay primer for years and when they stopped making it, I tried many other kinds and with my sensitive skin I had a lot of breakouts. I was reluctant to try this because of the price but it was worth it! After moisturizing I use a tiny bit of primer and let it sit for a minute before applying foundation and powder. I noticed after the first day of using this product that my makeup looks exactly the same at 11pm as it did at noon. It's amazing! I will always use this product.

            All week long I do a full face of makeup. Full coverage, eyes, contour, the whole nine yards. I'm no stranger to expensive makeup and I look at it as an investment. I was looking for something that would give me a break on the weekends, but still allow me to run out the door without exposing all of my blemishes and uneven skin tone. I really like this, it's buildable and the best part is when I put my glasses on it doesn't get that smudged look on my nose the way my foundation does.

                I use this product as a primer before I put foundation on, although I have just used this product alone on my face. This primer provides color, coverage, and great protection from the sun, which if you care about your skin as much as I do is a huge benefit; after all we are all worried about premature aging and other skin damage that comes from the sun.

                    The product is very lightweight and non greasy! It also provided amazing coverage and matched my skin perfectly! However, it does not stay on very long. I have combination skin that leans more towards the oily side. So the excess oil may not have helped the product stay on longer.

                      I will never stop using this product. I searched for a long time trying to find a BB cream light enough for my skin tone. This is the only one I have been able to find. A little goes a long way. And it does very well will my oily skin. Definitely a plus with the high SPF. Lightweight feel is great for the hot humid climate I live in.

                          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).

                          I use my finger to apply this product, but my pores are more visible than usual after using this. I tried applying it with circular motion with a brush, and it looks better. Not ideal though. Is this normal? Because of this problem, I haven't used this product.

                            This primer works great if you apply with a brush or a sponge.

                          Light Neutral is my shade in Shape Tape. What shade of this product do you recommend to "match"?
