Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

This BB cream is great as a moisturizer. It has very light coverage, though, so I would still recommend foundation on top of this (unless you have naturally flawless skin). I also like that is has SPF in it.

    I love how light the foundation is, however it has a sheen to it that makes you look shiny through the day. I don't find it looks "healthy", more shiny or oily. I will be returning it.

        Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

        I was looking for a product that was light coverage that actually covered and wasn't too greasy. Many I've tried took too long to "set" and felt greasy. I was heading to a warmer climate for vacation and didn't want an over caked on look, but I needed coverage. I stepped out and tried a more pricey brand then I would typically seek out and I'm glad I did. The benefit makes up up for the few dollars difference and a little goes a LONG way so I think I'm actually using less for the same result so I may actually be saving money in the long run. I will definitely purchase this again.

            This is the best tinted moisturizer I've ever used. It blends nicely and gives a natural finish that's not too matte or shiny. If you're looking for that "naturally flawless" look, go for this moisturizer. If you apply a light finishing powder after, it looks SO GOOD--you get the appearance of perfect skin without it looking cakey. Warning: it doesn't give a ton of coverage, so if you're looking for a full-blown foundation, don't choose this product. Overall, it's great! I'll definitely be buying it again when my first tube runs out.

            this product evens out my skin tone and provides excellent moisture, how ever I accidentally bought this I meant to buy the foundation but this product was in the ivory foundation spot so the next day I went back and bought the actual foundation. which I love both this product doesn't really give a whole lot of coverage it evens out my skin but with blemishes they are still red and require concealer to hide when I wear this alone.

            Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

            Let it be known I have very oily and acne-scarred skin. I purchased it because I wanted a light product that had some coverage and wouldn't grease up on me (description says this product controls oil). Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations. To me, coverage was just like any other drugstore bb cream. Maybe it was a little better, but not enough for the price difference. First day I tried it out, I applied two thin coats of product (because one just wasn't enough coverage), set it with powder, drove to work, looked in the mirror and saw my face covered in oil and shine. If you don't have problematic skin, one layer might be enough coverage for you, and then you might not grease up like I did. But for me, it just wasn't worth the money I paid.

              Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

              I've used this daily for a few years, I picked it because I was able to get a good color match. I also find it does not settle in any creases or imperfections but it doesn't last for 12 hours on my skin.
              I also choose it for the natural SPF ingredients.
              I read some comments from others that feel it is too light/Sheer but its a BB Cream/Tinted moisturizer and won't give the coverage that you get from a foundation. It may be pricey to some but it lasts and I can't get a color match with drugstore brands and many places don't offer testers. I finish with a light dusting of a natural mineral matte powder

                  Medium-Tan may be your best match, though we do recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is perfect for you:
                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                  This product is oil-free (so it won't clog your pores), dermatologist-tested, and indicated for all skin types.

                  Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 does not have any sparkle or shimmer and has a natural finish. If you prefer a matte finish, you can certainly set your BB using a finishing powder such as Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder:

                  Apply as you would your daily moisturizer. Smooth a small amount onto skin. Remember, this formula is buildable so you can layer if necessary. Can be applied with a sponge, foundation brush or by using your fingers. Can be used with or without primer.
