          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          This primer is amazing. It corrects both dark spots and redness while giving light coverage. I like to use it on just the areas on my face that need more help: under my eyes, on my cheeks where I have scars from previous breakouts and around my nose which tends to be a little red. I blend it in with my favorite brush or sponge. The coverage is nice enough that if I want I can stop there. However, I like to wear this underneath Tarte's powder foundation. Perfect combination for flawless but natural looking skin!

          Comments about Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer:

          For the price, i would expect something a bit more. Ive worn it both by itself and underneath other makeup, ie. Foundation, powder etc. It goes on very easy, very smooth. I did notice if i hadn't exfoliated in a while that it settled on my face funny.the product itself is very lightweight, which is good and bad. I have pretty good skin, so it normally is a good thing for me. But some days when im not looking so hot, its not enough by itself. Especially under my eyes, thats where it doesn't really benefit me any. And again, my skins not bad, but i still use an under eye concealer with this. Overall ive been pleased with it. A darker shade may have worked a little better. For those with bad skin, im not sure if this is for you because of how lightweight it is. Again, the price was probably the biggest downfall.

                This stuff is amazing! Little to no scent and great coverage for a cc primer. The only draw back is that the formula is kind of dry, so if you have dry skin it'll get stuck on the flakes. I have extremely oily skin but around my nose is dry and on the oily parts, it's perfect and keeps me matte.

                      I purchased this product on a whim. I don't like makeup that feels heavy or cakey and this is neither of those. It buffs into skin and the three colors work beautifully to cover my mild rosacea redness. It leaves a silky smooth feeling behind. I use it as a primer most days and only buff on a little mineral foundation after. I am in love. My only wish is more product for the price. But if you can afford it, it's certainly worth a splurge. I'll definitely repurchase

                        I have very oily skin and prone to acne breakouts and don't want to use any products that will cause my face to be more oily/break out more. Would this product be good for me? I tend to have issues with make up looking cakey. Is this to be worn under foundation?

                          A:

                          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. It is suitable for all skin types and features a soft, matte finish.

                          Colored Clay CC Primer can be used before foundation as a color-correcting primer or alone for light coverage.

                          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.
