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

    I bought this product for my 12 year old daughter. She had tried a friend's foundation and it made her break out. I decided it was time to invest in a good foundation. We bought this with the help of a professional from Ulta. It isn't exactle a foundation, but it gives her a hint of color without looking cakey. It has not caused her skin to breakout at all.

      Love this product. The color is a perfect match for my complexion. Since this was such a perfect match I hoped one of the other Tarte foundations and hated it. Sticking with this. My skin loves it.

          I originally tried out the sample and fell in love! Had to get the full sized version. It's a BB Primer so you can use it on its own or use it under a foundation which makes it super easy to switch up your look!

                Like everyone else says, the texture is AMAZING! I like trying new things, and I had just finished a bottle of this and went to Ulta and sampled other BB and CC creams, and I just felt like everything was so cakey after using this product, so I bought it again. It gives a great overall even color. I do still use a concealer for under the eyes and if I have any blemishes because this is not full coverage, so I wouldn't recommend this for acne.

                    I use this product for daily wear. I simply apply over my moisturizer and spf, although if I am feeling lazy, I put this right on as a moisturizer, spf and beauty balm all in one. I like a lot of moisture without feeling heavy or unbreathable, and this really does the trick! Great coverage for how lightweight it is. The perfect pick up coverage for mid day or before a meeting/presentation. Completely erased my need to wear makeup on a daily basis.

                        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!
