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

    I like to use bb creams as an all over concealer or as a light foundation just to run to the store, but this one doesn't work for me. It's okay, but it's shimmery. So without putting powder on I look like a little girl who dumped glitter all over their face. I prefer smashbox. Covers better and I can wear it alone.

      I've used this product for a while now, and it is one of the few that doesn't make me break out! I feels so light on and provides enough coverage for me that I don't have to wear anything else over it, but looks natural.

        I like this for everyday use and I really, really love that it has SPF!! It's definitely not full-coverage (but do you buy a BB cream expecting that??); I feel like it evens out my skin without completely covering up my uniqueness. The color is a perfect fit for me (Light-Medium). Seems to wear all day for me, even in the hot summer sun in Southern California (I use UD All-Nighter too). My skin is a bit oily in the t-zone but not dry elsewhere and I can use this without issues. Really don't have anything negative to say!

          I wanted something with light coverage and a matte finish, and this is it. I can just put it on with my fingers, and the light color matches my skin well. A little bit goes a long way too. Other BB creams or tinted moisturizers I have tried have been a little too shiny or greasy, but this one is just right. It evens things out, but still lets my freckles show through. If I need to cover a blemish, spot concealer does the trick. If you want heavy coverage, you won't like this. But, if you have nice skin that just needs a little bit of coverage, you should give this a try.

          After years of unexplained breakouts (into my 30's), I decided to on a whim try Tarte because of the natural avenue I was traveling. Never expected the added bonus of clear skin! This product, along with their powder coverage is phenomenal! I can't believe it! Feels great, looks great, AND CLEARED MY 10 YEARS of breakouts!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!! Never stop making this product!!!!

          I love this product so much. This is the perfect everyday makeup to wear. If I wear heavy foundation too much I start to breakout and my skin becomes blotchy and what not but this product takes away any blemishes or redness you have and leaves a nice even skin tone which is all I really want. I wear this everyday to work and if needed I put powder on top. It's the perfect balance and I can wear this a week straight without ending up with bad skin.

                      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.

                      The light-to-medium coverage that a BB cream like this one provides is especially ideal for younger makeup users like you and for makeup beginners! Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer is oil-free and formulated for all skin types, so it is a wonderful option for you.

                      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.

                    I've used too faced beauty balm and it was too sparkly for my liking. Before I used the sephora brand BB cream and there's no shimmer in there so I was wondering if it's like that?

                      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.
