Fabulous product!

By Alyssa

from Portland

Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

This is a great option for someone looking for light coverage. It goes on silky smooth and blends into your skin without feeling oily. I love how soft it keeps my skin and it has the added benefit of sun protection. I would recommend this to anyone looking for sheer coverage that leaves you with a healthy (not greasy!) glow. I've had no issues with it fading, but I do use a finishing spray after I've applied all of my makeup.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      After trying more than a few products, I finally decided this product was the one I've been looking for. I wanted something that looked natural but provided some coverage - maybe just a product to even my skin tone. I can no longer wear foundation - seems too cakey for my skin at this junction in life. Color blends perfectly; coverage is minimal so you may need concealer if you have a trouble spot or two.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I usually don't buy name brands or more expensive items, but when it comes to foundation, I find that the cheap products are cheap for a reason.
      I will be more than willing to buy this product again and again. I have naturally dry skin, so especially in the winter I have issues finding foundation that doesn't create the "scale" texture on my skin, or be overly heavy for day-to-day wear. This foundation has been easy to apply, looks completely natural, and I've had no break-outs or issues in the month I've been using it.
      Phenomenal product, would definitely recommend.

          I've been looking for a more sheer foundation and this fits the bill. I was afraid it might be to heavy (clay?) But this was light weight and still had great coverage. This is my go-to product now.

            This BB cream is great as a moisturizer. It has very light coverage, though, so I would still recommend foundation on top of this (unless you have naturally flawless skin). I also like that is has SPF in it.

              I love how light the foundation is, however it has a sheen to it that makes you look shiny through the day. I don't find it looks "healthy", more shiny or oily. I will be returning it.

                  Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

                  I was looking for a product that was light coverage that actually covered and wasn't too greasy. Many I've tried took too long to "set" and felt greasy. I was heading to a warmer climate for vacation and didn't want an over caked on look, but I needed coverage. I stepped out and tried a more pricey brand then I would typically seek out and I'm glad I did. The benefit makes up up for the few dollars difference and a little goes a LONG way so I think I'm actually using less for the same result so I may actually be saving money in the long run. I will definitely purchase this again.

                      Medium-Tan may be your best match, though we do recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is perfect for you:

                      This product is oil-free (so it won't clog your pores), dermatologist-tested, and indicated for all skin types.

                      Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 does not have any sparkle or shimmer and has a natural finish. If you prefer a matte finish, you can certainly set your BB using a finishing powder such as Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder:
