      Love this product! I despise trying to find foundation that matches, looks good and lasts. I know this isn't a "foundation" but the coverage is fabulous, looks natural and lasts all day. I love this product and have purchased many times. Will continue to do so.

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

          I have to have this stuff. It's amazing, and it does so many different things! It's a SPF 30 sunscreen, but it doesn't have that "sunscreen smell" to it, nor it is greasy like some of the SPF products that I've tried in the past. It's a tinted primer, so you can use it like a foundation for a lighter look/wear, or you can use it as a primer underneath something else. I use it in conjunction with the Tarte Powder Airbrush Foundation for full coverage. I have oily skin and this product stays on throughout the day, and doesn't cause me to break out either. It's light, it doesn't cake, and it doesn't rub off on my clothing either. It's easy to apply and is easy to remove as well. Also, a little goes a long way, and it actually lasts for close to six months, and I use it almost every day. Love his stuff. Couldn't do without it!

              I have always had a hard time finding a light weight concealer that gave my face an even look. I am shocked at how well this has done the trick! My skin looks so even and healthy and now glows! And I love that the ingredients are natural!

                      A:

                      Since it's a shade from another brand, it's difficult to determine your perfect match but this primer comes in four skin-matching shades, ranging from fair (which is the lightest shade) to medium tan (which is the darkest).
