      Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

      I now use this as my foundation (I tend to use a bit of concealer, then a lightweight or no foundation, then some bronzer or powder). It blends nicely, feels great, easy to dot/smear around and blend in, and is very portable in the stick form. I'm pretty pale and the fair (lightest) tone was the right one for me.

        This product is my new favorite! I use it after letting my moisturizer soak in for about 10 minutes. I am using about half the amount of foundation now that I used to use. Blends in well and my pores seem to dissapear.

          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          I use this on my t-zone and chin, blending outward. I have fair, sensitive skin and I was wary of any tinted cream, especially CC or BB creams because they tend to add ingredients that also irritate sensitive skin and cause terrible creasing as the day wears on. However, I love the Tarte brand, and I was intrigued with the balm application versus a liquid, so I decided to give this product a try. I am happy to see that it doesn't irritate my skin and smoothes out my complexion concerns. I add a lightweight mineral powder over my entire face, and the makeup stays fresh all day. It's nice not having to touch up while at work. I recommend this product and the Tarte brand in general to those with sensitive skin looking for quality, long-lasting products.

            Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

            This CC primer initially made me nervous, but after trying it in the store, I had to give it a go. I tested both "Fair" and "Light" shades in the store, and the "Fair" seemed like it was a little chalky (I wear "Light Neutral" in the Amazonian Clay liquid foundation, for context) so I went with "Light."

            It comes in a twist up tube, which makes it GREAT for traveling. You just twist up the product and apply it, then blend outward. It glides on the skin--no tugging or pulling. It blends easily with the fingers (haven't tried a brush or a beauty blender) and even though it looks very yellow/orange in the tube, it does blend out very well.

            Please note, this will NOT cover everything. It's pretty sheer but it does a good job of evening out skin color and giving the skin a good primer layer for foundation. I've actually been just using this and a dusting of finishing powder for light-makeup days and it works GREAT!

            I did also try it as a true primer, with the Amazonian Clay foundation. BEWARE: unless you have super oily skin you will want to moisturize and then use a light hand applying primer and foundation. It could get cakey, so I applied a very light bit of foundation and blended it with fingers and then brush, and then a dusting of finishing powder. It lasted for HOURS and there was only a little creasing around my eyes. My skin also feels super smooth with it on and no irritation or dryness, although I do note a somewhat "tight" feeling.

            So, it can serve a few purposes: good for those light-makeup days, or as a primer for those more serious do-it-all-up makeup days. Either way it's worth it, versatility gives it even more value!

              Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

              I love tarte products, and am a regular user of their bb cream. However, since using the colored clay cc primer, I admit I'm using the bb cream less, and foundation even less often. At first application it blends well and covers decent. I always think I'm going to need more, but then it just seems to cover exactly what I need. It looks super soft & natural, and though I feared it would be an issue with my dry skin, it's not. I adore this product! It goes on super quickly, blends well, and just makes my skin look great.

                I have very fair skin and I was afraid the 'fair' would be too dark. It's not. It's perfect! I've actually stopped using my foundation and just use this with setting powder. I love it! It does help my color correction too (dark circles/redness). I'm a fan!

                Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

                Tarte has once again, blown my expectations with this product. It has eliminated the need for liquid foundation and concealer to cover up imperfections. It's natural ingredients feel amazing on my skin and I can't see myself ever wearing any cosmetic brand since switching to Tarte!

                I've been using this for a while now and i have combination oily skin, its been working great. Controls my shine, and my make up last longer than with any other primer. So far i'm in love with this product i don't have anything negative other than it has poor coverage, but you can wear this alone if you have perfect skin.

                  This is perfect for days when you want something light and natural. Its so easy to apply and takes no time. Is also leaves your skin very smooth.I have red checks and this doesn't completely cover them but I like the coverage it does give. I just don;t need to wear much blush. The only thing is don't be tricked but the color, go with your usual color. I have light/light med skin depending whether it is summer/winter, and I bought the fair thinking the light looked to dark, but ended up returning for the light shade.

                  My new wonder product, there is awesome coverage, longevity and it feels so good to the touch and is weightless. I have been using this without foundation on top. All it needs is SPF in it and it would be perfect.
