      Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

      I am so in love with this product! It goes on well and makes my face feel silky. The green and purple color correct beautifully and even brighten my skin a bit. I usually have areas of redness and dullness. I apply it to my t-zone and blend outwardly with my hands. I wear this along with a medium-full coverage foundation powder on my face and it looks close to airbrushed. It lasts throughout most of my day and does not cause any problems for my combination skin. Will be suggesting and repurchasing.

        Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

        I really love this product for the color correcting. I tend to have red-toned skin and some dark spots from acne, and this really helps even out the discoloration. Its great to use under foundation to create an even colored canvas, or on its own. I have two problems with this though: 1) It's quite expensive for the small amount you get. The tube already looks pretty small, then the product doesn't even fill the whole tube. 2) It's not the best primer. I don't notice my foundation staying any better, and if you have any dry skin this tends to highlight it. This is my second time buying this just because I can't find anything even close to creating such a beautiful even color, so to me its worth it. But if a primer is more important to you, look elsewhere.

        It goes on so easily. It doesn't make my face look "cakey" either. I am so please with this that I just bought my 3rd one! Thanks, Tarte! I am obsessed with your products!

          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          I only used this a few times before it started to dry out and irritate my skin. I really liked the coloring of it and how smooth it felt on my skin though so I was very disappointed. I tried it again using a moisturizer first and that helped but not completely. I unfortunately wouldn't buy it again.

            Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

            I have more oily skin than dry or combination. I have been using this product for awhile now and I love it. I love all the clay-based Tarte products, especially for my oily skin. I have really enjoyed the clay, it helps absorb oil and keeps my make-up looking fresh. It is a great primer to use before my foundation. The only reason I said 'poor coverage' was a con is because it is not a foundation and should not be used if you need coverage. It is only a primer, like it says. You can barely see the purple and green when you put it on your skin and it blends well with a good brush. I personally think applying your make-up is all about the brush. I, of course, use Tarte brushes. I use it all-year round and would definitely recommend trying it, especially if you have used any of the other amazonian clay make-up products from Tarte. It's worth adding to your collection! :)

              Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

              I purchased this product on a whim. I haven't really been satisfied with any of the BB or CC creams I've tried in the past. I don't necessarily want to wear foundation every day, but still want a little bit of coverage and color correction. Most BB or CC creams offer too little coverage, and leave my oily skin looking too shiny after just a few hours. Not this product! I was shocked to find that after wearing it all day I had very little oil build-up on my face. It also kept its silky, matte feeling for hours after application. I like that it's easy to build coverage without looking cakey and gross. Overall, this is a great product.

                I really like CC primer. I have an oily t-zone area and larger pores. I use it alone for a nice matte finish. Makes my skin appear almost flawless. The reason I only gave it four stars is because it's pretty pricey...

                  Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

                  I was so excited when I purchased this product and really wanted to love it but it broke me out terribly. Overall, the product went on well, provided very sheer coverage and left the skin feeling smooth and matte. Definitely can be worn alone or under foundation. The green and blue pigment blend well and do not look muddy or weird.

                  After the first day of use I had a minor breakout around my lips and chin. Second day, the breakout got worse and expanded to my cheeks and forehead. By the third day I had blackheads and tiny pimples all over my face. The only thing I had changed with my routine was this product, so I discontinued use and the breakouts stopped. It really is too bad that I had such a bad reaction to this primer because I was really looking forward to it and the new CC foundation.

                      From Tarte Cosmetics: "While we do not perform specific testing to claim non-comedogenic, all tarte products are tested under dermatological control and thus not associated with causing any clinically significant skin irritations. In addition to being dermatologist tested, the colored clay CC primer formula is oil free and, like all tarte products, it’s formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate or gluten."
