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

I love this "BB" tinterd moisturizer. It is very light coverage though, I always put on two coats and apply it with my hands. If I want a little more coverage, I mix in a pump of my MAC studio fix concealor and use a damp sponge. This is best for people who want something that goes on easily and let's their real skin shine through. The only downside is that you have to blot your face after a few hours so it might not be great for people with oily skin if you're looking for all day wear.

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

    I haven't worn any foundation in probably 5-6 years. I have come to accept my skin and feel that a little bronzer or concealer can go along way without making me feel too made up or too exposed! However, lately I have had times when I wanted to feel a little more polished. A woman at Ulta matched my skin tone and applied this for me all over using a complexion brush and I loved how I looked. It evens out my skin tone without covering up all the things that make me "me" like freckles. Took a little getting used to in terms of weight but I am super happy I bought this!

        I am really pleased with this product. It can be applied with fingers for very sheer coverage or stippled on with a flat top brush for more medium coverage. It also stays put much better than anticipated in 90+ degree southern humidity. The finish is natural your skin but better.

                    I really like the texture of the product. I wanted and asked for a light makeup with moisturizer and sun protection. I wish I had gotten a darker shade and that the SPF was higher than 20.

                      I love this makeup! I have very sensitive skin and this does not irritate it or cause breakouts. I am 45 and have found that heavier makeup settles into fine lines making them look deeper. This product does not do that, plus it evens my skin tone and keeps my skin moisturized. It is a tinted moisturizer so don't expect it to cover anything too serious, but it is perfect for everyday wear and looks very natural. On days when I need more coverage or want a more "made up" look I use the Tarte Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation powder on top of this tinted moisturizer. They work well together.

                        I currently have the old version of this product. Mine is the Smooth Operator in Amazonian Clay tinted moisturizer. The color is Agent 00. What color do I need in the new formula since that color is not a choice?

                          There is no replacement for Agent 00. The closest available shade is Ivory, which replaced Agent 02.

                        Which is better for a 13 year old girl. I don't usually get pimples and I still have P.E. at school. Do you recommend a BB cream or foundation.

                          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:

                          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:

                          Apply as you would your daily moisturizer. Smooth a small amount onto skin. Remember, this formula is buildable so you can layer if necessary. Can be applied with a sponge, foundation brush or by using your fingers. Can be used with or without primer.
