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

    All week long I do a full face of makeup. Full coverage, eyes, contour, the whole nine yards. I'm no stranger to expensive makeup and I look at it as an investment. I was looking for something that would give me a break on the weekends, but still allow me to run out the door without exposing all of my blemishes and uneven skin tone. I really like this, it's buildable and the best part is when I put my glasses on it doesn't get that smudged look on my nose the way my foundation does.

        I use this product as a primer before I put foundation on, although I have just used this product alone on my face. This primer provides color, coverage, and great protection from the sun, which if you care about your skin as much as I do is a huge benefit; after all we are all worried about premature aging and other skin damage that comes from the sun.

            The product is very lightweight and non greasy! It also provided amazing coverage and matched my skin perfectly! However, it does not stay on very long. I have combination skin that leans more towards the oily side. So the excess oil may not have helped the product stay on longer.

              I will never stop using this product. I searched for a long time trying to find a BB cream light enough for my skin tone. This is the only one I have been able to find. A little goes a long way. And it does very well will my oily skin. Definitely a plus with the high SPF. Lightweight feel is great for the hot humid climate I live in.

                I use this primer instead of a foundation since it offers such great coverage. I love that it has SPF, no smell, and blends easily.

                My fav foundation. Only one that I can find good enough for sensitive skin. I would never use anything different! If I sweat a lot, oil becomes a tiny issue but that's expected with such a light weight foundation.

And I love that it has spf 30 in it as well! Keeping my skin safe. Oh did I mention Tarter is cruelty free as well!

                    I have used this under foundation as a moisturizer and sunscreen.

                        Yes! You could try one of our smooth operator Amazonian clay setting powders. There are translucent loose & pressed versions, along with a tinted pressed version if you're looking for a little more coverage.

                    • 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).
