    Looks great, I received a sample not too long ago. I decided I need a whole tube. Wonderful light even coverage. I wear alone as a BB cream.

      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

      I don't really understand this product. I did a lot of research before purchasing it and was trying to decide between this, or the BB cream, or the foundation. I ended up getting this one but brought it back. It made my skin darker (too bad it only comes in 1 color), but overall I didn't really feel like it did much else. I didn't think my skin had the glowing look or anything that I read in other reviews. It was meh.

        Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

        When I first tried this I was sold on it. It gives my skin the most beautiful, lit from within glow. It has light coverage but is buildable if necessary on spots where a little more coverage is needed. It feels super light on the skin, dries quickly so it doesn't leave that sticky feel on my skin plus it stands up to the summer heat in the South. My husband even complimented how healthy my skin looked while I was wearing this. If one wants a healthy glow, this is definitely a great BB to try.

        Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

        I have tried samples of almost every prestige skin care line's face makeup. I am 63, so I thought, well, maybe I could use a little extra coverage. Not a single other makeup compares to this, for me. I love the very subtle luminosity and color....even though it is one color for all. It blends so nicely on the skin, and my face looks radiant and I feel the great ingredients are helping my skin all day. Love this product....don't want to be without it!

        BEST HIGHLIGHTER!!!

              Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

              Honestly, I tried it as a BB and I my face just didn't like it. I guess since I already have oily skin that this product is TOO illuminating to me that made me look more oily, but I can definitely see how normal/dry skin would love this product. I decided to experiment though, because I couldn't let this product go to waste...one day I applied this over my foundation on my cheekbones as a highlighter and may I say that it gave me the most natural glow to my face, because it gives you that "wet" highlighted look instead of a "powdery" highlighted look. I say give it a try as a BB cream, and if you don't like it definitely try it out as a highlighter!

                I've tried SO many BB creams and this one does the job. A lot of BB creams don't give me enough coverage or don't match my skin tone. I tried this one and I've had it for about 2 weeks now and I love it! It goes on so smoothly and makes me face look great. It matches my skin PERFECTLY! I also have terribly dry skin and this makes my skin look so smooth and it definitely "illuminates" like the label says. Awesome product!

                Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

                I'm sitting here feeling how smooth this makes my skin feel. I have used it by itself (on days when I need very little coverage) and normally I blend it with my Amazonian Clay foundation to help sheer it out just a little bit. It does serve well as a highlighter, but normally I mix it into the foundation before I apply it.

                By itself, the moisturizer is a little darker than I would like (it only comes in one shade), but it works better for me in the summer when I'm more tan and I don't need to wear much makeup. It's sheer but does give a "glow," not sparkles but definitely it looks luminous. It does get a little "slippery" on the skin by itself, especially in the summer when I've been sweating.

                When blended with foundation, it helps give a more natural look and sheer it out a little bit. In both cases (alone or blended with foundation), it makes the skin feel smoother. I have never had any breakouts or skin irritation from it, and it lasts quite a while since a small amount is usually enough.

                It's a little on the pricey side but I think it's worth it!

                  This product is amazing. The best BB cream I have ever used. I use this BB cream and use Tarte's pressed powder afterwards, and my skin looks flawless and completely natural. Everyone thinks that I am not wearing makeup when I wear this. It lasts throughout the day, is very easy to apply and blend, is great for your skin, and gives fair coverage.

                    Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

                    I absolutely love this product. Here's how I use it:
                    First I cleanse, tone, and moisturize my face. Then I apply maybelline dream fresh bb cream all over my face, then I apply my bare minerals original foundation. After that I put this product on, the illuminating bb cream. I only use it as a brightener under my eyes and other places I want to highlight.

                    It perfects my skin, it looks flawless. It makes it look airbrushed! Personally, I think it looks best over makeup as a concealer/highlighter. I tried it under my makeup and it looked cakey. This has to be ulta's best product for sure! If I want a natural look, I don't wear any foundation and just apply this all over my skin as a moisturizer and it makes my skin look perfect and natural.

                    I HIGHLY recommend this product for all skin types. I have dry/normal skin but sometimes it gets a little oily....this product moisturizes without getting shiny. This is my go-to product and it actually visibly brightens my skin!! I would definitely try it out.
