    I hate the feel of foundation on my face. Tartes tinted primer works great as a lightweight foundation. Stays on all day & doesn't feel greasy. Good selection of shades.

      A little goes a long way and it blends amazingly. Before I had discovered this bb cream I never wore any face coverage (foundation, blush, etc.) because I always breakout and rubbed it off. But I got to say this brand works perfectly with my skin tone and type.

        I seriously love this product. I usually hate any type of coverage because I hate a powdery or greasy finish. This one is so smooth and light but still manages to give me an even finish.

              I love this stuff. I always had a hard time finding a foundation that didn't look to heavy and a color that actually matched my skin. This stuff is light enough that it blends right in and my skin looks healthy and smooth. Being in my 50's it covers some of the age spots and red spots I have, not 100% but close enough.

                  Love the convenience of a tinted primer. A little flaky and hard to apply evenly but overall ok. I might buy again if I can't find something else similar.

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

                  I started using this as my only, bare-faced product, but it is best used in conjunction with a light foundation or high quality, tinted moisturizer on top. It takes a minute to set before you apply your foundation. The nicest thing about this is it is true to shade! I am very fair skinned and many BB creams turn orange on me. I recommend this if you want a good foundation and lightest coverage, or if you are building a foundation for other products on top. It does a good job at smoothing out imperfections (fine lines, pores, etc.).

                    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.
