      This is the best bb cream I have ever used. I've used smashbox, Bobbi brown, etc and this one is by far the best. It's so silky and a little goes a long way!! It's also matte, and even though it's light weight it has nice coverage and blends nicely with concealers. I just can't say enough about this AWESOME product.

          Heavy feeling and matte. Made my skin look dull. Was not something I could easily apply with fingers and blend well. Might as well save your money and get a nice foundation instead, the Tarte tinted moisturizer is much better

            I was initially looking for a sheer/light coverage, lightweight liquid foundation with SPF for everyday wear. I wanted something super light that would just cover up some blemishes and imperfections and even out my skin tone. While in the store, I tried this on and I was so surprised by how light it is even though it isn't "liquidy". It feels like a mousse, light as air, cloud-type of foundation. It spreads so evenly and fluidly like a liquid. It isn't sticky, it feels soft like skin. It was everything I was looking for, maybe even better. I love it.

                I use this product as a foundation. I have tried the Tarte Amazonian clay foundation, but it was never as silky smooth as this primer! This primer is amazing! I notice that I actually have fewer breakouts when I use it and my skin is smoother. The fact that it is SPF 30 is a huge bonus as well. I never go without sunscreen. As long as you are not looking for full coverage, this is your best bet! The coverage is light to medium and covers up most imperfections without having to use a heavier foundation.

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

                I was initially put off by the slippery primer finish, as it is unlike most other BB's and foundations, but after more uses it has definitely grown on me! The "slippery-ness" means that just a tiny bit of product goes A LONG way, and it gives the most even coverage possible from just a pea-sized drop. It is like putting a colored skin-blurring veil. I suffer from break-outs and scars so I usually use this as a primer before putting on a light foundation, but it could easily stand on its own. If you got it and aren't so sure about the feeling of it, give it a chance!

                  It cost a bit, but it's worth it. I have yet to find a BB cream that has primer, SPF and tint all in one that I like. It's smooth and applies easily. Although, I do apply the cream with my fingers. It has a natural look. I'm in my mid 30's and find my skin changing from oily and slightly dry.

                        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.
