    Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

    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.

      Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

      I was a little nervous about the cream to powder finish, but this stuff is amazing. I have worn it by itself and under a MAC MSF. I LOVE the natural airbrushed finish.
      The packaging is horrible and feels very cheap. It easily falls apart. The packaging was almost a deal breaker for me.

        Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

        Love this CC Primer!! I have uneven skin tone with redness on my cheeks. Every CC Primer I've used will make my skin look more even but my face would look orange in natural sunlight and I would become oily pretty quickly. I also break out fairly easily. This product is just wonderful. It covers up my uneven skin tone without making me look orange. My skin feels smooth right after application. I do get a little oily towards the end of the day but I really think it's inevitable with my skin. I apply BareMinerals matte foundation over top of this. Note: I would apply a moisturizer before applying this CC Primer because if you have any dry skin, it seems to highlight it and make it stand out.

          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          I love this product. I used to use the Tarte Amazonian Clay concealer (which is also wonderful) But I got tired of having something so heavy everyday and I liked that this product said it would improve my skin. I battled with breakouts for a couple of years now but I finally have the breakouts under control. The last thing I want is heavy makeup. I have a lot of scars from acne so I try to find a balance of: good coverage, wont break me out, and also helps to fix the battle scars. This Primer does all 3. I smooth it all over my face before applying an all natural bronzer (I use Zuzu) and my skin looks like its naturally clear and smooth.

          At first I had to get used to the fact that it isn't concealer. It doesn't cover everything at first and it goes on rather thin. I had to ease into it and at first I continued to use concealer as well for the really bad scars. But as this primer continued to improve my skin, now I can use it alone and I don't look too bad at all!

          As with everything else, they need more colors for darker complexions. I use deep and my complexion is probably a few shades richer than Rihanna...so it is unfair that many girls won't be able to use this product because we live in a world that caters to fairer complexions.

            I really love this product. When I bought this, I was looking for a corrector to add into.my collection; my skin is oily and prone to break out. So foundation, at times, is not enough for all those face demons! This product cancels out redness with ease and looks completely natural. Its almost like a foundation itself and can be worn alone! Definitely impressed!
            I usually just wear this as a cover up for unfornate red bumps.

                  I must say that this product looks pretty good on its own to even out skin tone and add a smooth matte finish to the skin. CC Primer blends easily. It does provide an excellent base for foundation,amd gives warmth to the skin.

                    Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

                    I purchased this product in August and haven't used anything else since! Although I just wanted a good primer for my foundation at the time, since buying it I have hardly even used a foundation on top of it; I hardly even need a foundation anymore. This primer is really easy to apply and blend in with your fingers and for me it provides just the amount of coverage I need. I don't like the heavy feeling of foundation anymore after getting used to the lightweight coverage Tarte's CC Primer provides. Obviously if you need anything more than lightweight coverage, you'll want to put foundation on top of it; you don't have to use it alone since it is a primer and is supposed to be used with foundation. But for me, this product has been great! Very smooth with just the amount of coverage I need!
