Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

I'm fairly pale, but not like a ghost. A friend who works at an ULTA in Atlanta recommended this product in 'Light' and said that it was perfect on her, and she's paler than I am so I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I got the travel size, because this color is a lot closer to medium than it is to light. It was a good five shades darker than me!! I can get away with it if I'm wearing a long sleeve top and blend it down my neck and decolletage, but I don't want to look darker, else I'd buy a self tanning lotion.

THANKFULLY I have re-purposed the bb cream as liquid contour, and it works perfectly for that, so it's not so bad. The colour name is completely misleading, though.

    Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

    I love this product! I usually use this as a primer after applying moisturizer. It is so light and soft. This is one of a handful of products that I keep re-purchasing. I continually get the travel size, because it is a better value than the full size ($/ounce). Highly recommended!

    Too dry for my slightly dry skin

    Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

    This product was too dry for my slightly dry skin. It didn't blend well as it was a little thicker than I expected. Very far from a tinted moisturizer. The texture was quite smooth, however, and very much reminded me of other silicone primers, such as the E.L.F. clear primer. The tone was also too dark for me. I am fair, but definitely not porcelain skin toned, and I bought the second-lightest color. It looked yellow on me. The product was easily returned at my local Ulta - so go ahead and try it, just keep your receipt.

      I used the product after moisturizer, before BB tint, foundation, etc. Wanted a good primer for flawless look, but still had eye shadow creases on lids. Decent coverage and smoothed out skin (blemishes, scars, etc).

          I have been using this product daily for almost a year. The coverage is fantastic. It feels amazing going on, blends well, and best of all - doesn't cause my sensitive skin to breakout! I absolutely love it and refuse to try anything else.

          Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

          This was an awful product. The coverage was great, but that's where it went downhill. It was orange and only sold in one color. It was pink toned and thick. It comes off fine with cleaner... Or so you think. It really needs scrubbing for the second layer to come off.

            Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

            First of all, this is much too dark for people with pale skin. I didn't want to take the time to return the product though, so I saved it by always moisturizing heavily first and then applying it over. It produces a pretty okay finish that becomes oilier than usual at the end of the day - but if you're not doing a marathon day you should be fine.

            Overall, average.

              Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

              I really love this product. The coverage is light and very natural, it is similar to a mineral foundation, that natural sheer finish but just enough to cover redness and slight flaws. This doesn't settle into my pores or fine lines. It feels smooth like mousse.

              I use this product everyday. I do set it with powder. It lasts for several hours when I set it with powder. When I don't it still lasts 3-4 hours and looks great.

              My skin is really oily however, this looks beautiful on my skin, and helps with oil control. I may get a little shiny by 2 or 3pm but nothing compared to when I don't wear it.

              For me its a standard in my beauty arsenal.

                Is this product waterproof? Many of Tarte's products are and I need something to wear during a vacation to a hot, humid area. Thanks!
