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

    There are so many pros to this product...parable free, cruelty free, goes on smoothly with no caking, great coverage and the list goes on. The one big con was there is a limited color selection. Medium was too orange for me and light was too light. If more color choices were added this would be my all time, go to favorite

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

      This was given to me as a gift from a friend. At first I was not sure if I liked it. It seemed a little too oily, but now I love it. The only down side is if I put a shirt on over my head too soon after I put my makeup on, I have to be careful not to get it on the shirt.

              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.
