      If you're thinking about getting this product, make sure you know what you're getting: the amount of coverage is very sheer, but it does even out skin tone a little. The box says it's buildable, but this is untrue due to the silicone, slippery nature of it. It has a very soft silicone feel, so it's good for large pores. It blends extremely easily. I have very oily skin, and while I don't find this to be the most oil-controlling product out there, it doesn't make things worse. I'm really enjoying it for summer, since I want something light, easy, and very natural looking. SPF is decent, but I find I can only use a pea-sized amount since it's so slippery, so I doubt I'm really benefiting from the full SPF protection. Maybe it's okay for incidental sun exposure, but probably not for more than that.

      One con of this product is the very limited shade selection. Fair is very, very fair. I got that one first, since I'm usually either the lightest or second lightest shade (I think in MAC I'm about a NC15), and it was too light for me. It made me look sickly, even though it's sheer. I bought the next shade, Light, and it was way too dark. I now mix those two shades together for a good match, but it made the venture extremely expensive.

          When they put the tester on it went on so nicely and it was light weight, it felt like I had no make on and didn't show any of my dry spots. But 2hrs later I started to itch, break out in hive. It wasn't a pretty sight. Besides the allergic reaction if your skin can tolarate its a great product.

            This product is perfect for me! It helps maintain a matte finish on my oily skin. Very lightweight and ideal for everyday use. I've been complemented several times on how smooth and radiant my skin looks (radiant, not greasy).

              This my all time favorite! I actually use it as my foundation. It is not full coverage, but it blurs imperfections and feels absolutely weightless. I just dab a bit of concealer on any areas where I need more coverage. It is not cheap, but the tube lasts me several months, so I think it is worth every penny!

                  Love this stuff! I use it as a lightweight bb cream for some coverage on my work days or just days when I'm not going full glam. It gives me light but even coverage that outlasts any bb cream I've ever tried. I absolutely love Tarte so it didn't suprised me that this product blew me away. I just repurchased.

                    When I originally bought this product, Tarte was advertising it as a primer + BB buildable foundation, rather than a tinted "treatment." It does have fairly good coverage for being mostly a primer. It's got that slip that some primers can get so it's difficult to combine with other products for a full coverage look. However, if you are someone with minor skin issues (a few blemishes, some redness, large pores, etc.) this in combination with a colored powder would probably be the perfect summer "foundation" for you! That was it's purpose when I purchased it. It definitely blurs pores. I do feel that it needs a beauty blender to be applied evenly. It streaks terribly with a brush. If the price wasn't so high I'd probably purchase it again but overall I feel it's not worth the price unless your skin is already pretty clear with minor issues.
