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

I've heard people rave about this product, but honestly, I wasn't too impressed. It leaves my skin oily by mid day and wears off really quickly. It's great that it's all natural ingredients, but wasn't my favorite. I will say that it blends really well with foundation and blush, and does leave your skin looking really smooth, but only for a few hours.

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

      At first I was concerned this product wouldn't give me good coverage but I was pleasantly surprised. This foundation feels incredibly smooth and I like the matte finish! It doesn't feel liquidy, nor does it go on heavy. If you don't like the coverage you can apply more or less to suit how much your face needs... haven't tested this out yet but it's also supposed to be waterproof.

              I use this product daily. It blends well with a beauty blender and stays on until I take it off at night. I'm very happy with it! Would love if it had a more luminous look, but I'm happy either way.

                I was looking for something that was going to be lightweight for summer that gave a nice matte look and also covered up some of my skin issues. This BB cream is perfect, it's light coverage but makes my finished look look smooth and even. I'll probably have to get a second bottle in a darker shade once summer hits and I start to tan, but I'm very happy with it for now!

                  Great as a primer under mineral foundation. But I can't use it solely on its own. Dislike that there are only 4 colors since no shade perfectly matches my skin tone.

                  Does last all day and was great SPF while I was on vacation in Hawaii. Was light enough that I didn't feel caked with makeup in the humidity.

                  • Q:

                    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).
