        I was hoping to find a replacement when Ulta stopped carrying Cargo in their stores. Not even close to Cargo CC. Very disappointed! The best coverage I have ever had was Bare Minerals powders but it is too messy. Cargo fit the bill.

          I use the product everyday. Covers my uneven skin without feeling heavy. When i am going out for something special i put foundation on over it and it blends really well and stays put. I love that most of the ingredients are not man made and it is free of parabens and phylates.

          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          I tried their cc eye cream which I love. Also I have been slowly converting to tarte product as the listed ingredients comes close to what I call safe and non-irritating. True to the its name, I didn't break out when I've used it, no smell detected on the product which I like, it goes on smoothly but it can be clumpy depending on your moisturizer and sunblock combination. Also it doesn't stay very long and doesn't cover very well. It looks very natural. I still have to use a foundation to cover my scars. But still I like it as it doesn't feel heavy and It's good for everyday use only.

                Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

                One of my girlfriends used this and it looked absolutely beautiful on her and she talked me into going to get it to try it out. I have normal skin- not dry and not oily, but this made my face look like a greasy mess. It didn't stay on and made my powder over top of it look splotchy and gross. I tried it as a foundation as well as a primer and it just did not work for me.

                Worst of all, this is the second Tarte product that has caused me some serious breakouts on my otherwise naturally clear face. I'm talking huge, painful, under the skin welt acne that never surfaced to a head. Maybe my skin is sensitive to a fixed ingredient they use in their products.

                Like I said, my friend had beautiful results with it, it blended perfectly on her and she has very sensitive skin- prone to oil and breakouts..but I'm going to have to return and get something else for myself.

                              Colored Clay CC Primer provides light coverage when worn alone and does help to minimize the appearance of discoloration. For fuller coverage, apply CC Primer first to color correct, then layer a medium or full coverage foundation on top.

                          • Q:

                            I have extremely oily skin. I currently use the full coverage tarte powder foundation and I've been looking for a primer to wear underneath for longer lasting coverage and to help with the oil even more. Which primer would be better for this... the colored clay CC or the BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen?

                              Both products are oil-free and formulated for all skin types, so either would be a great option for you. If you are seeking a product with a matte finish, you may prefer the Colored Clay CC Primer.

                            Hi..I currently use the Tarte BB cream which provides decent coverage and light moisture. My issue is that I have an extreme case of oily yet aging skin with recent bouts of redness. Do you think this would be a better product for me (i.e, maybe less oily and better coverage) than the bb cream?
                            thanks

                              Try shade Light (Item #:2268202). Colored Clay CC Primer features a gentle formula that is free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, and gluten, though with a diagnosed condition such as rosacea, we do recommend consulting your physician prior to introducing any new product into your personal care regimen.
