        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.

                I got this in a Tarte sample kit. I thought it was okay but I wouldnt buy anything bigger than the sample tube. It dosent stay on well and made my face look very oily.

                  I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and break out from about 97% of the face products I try. I went on limb and tried this one and no breakouts! It is so natural looking and adds a nice glow. I still use concealer with it like I would with any other BB cream due to a sheer coverage.

                  Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

                  I was going to get the Tarte BB cream primer because the reviews were good; but then I saw this one, which was still a BB cream... but not a primer. I didn't see the point in getting the primer version.

                  The pros:
                  -all natural ingredients. Nothing harsh in it.
                  -the 2nd lightest color matches my skin color perfectly. Which i was happy about because many creams are a tone or two darker and they make it obvious I'm wearing make-up, and that's not the look I was going for.

                  Cons:
                  -It's a bit dry. I have dry to normal sensitive skin, and I could not put this one by itself. I had to apply my Olay moisturizer first. It then, goes on fine.
                  -The coverage is very minimal. If I have a blemish, you can totally still see my blemish. Most creams I've tried at least minimize the redness.
                  -It wipes off easily, yet it doesn't. When I'm at the gym and wiping sweat off my face, it comes off. However, if I'm washing my face for bed with my cetaphil, it doesn't come off well. I have to use makeup remover cloths to get it all off. Didn't have this issue with other creams.
                  -Because it's more on the dry side, if any of my dry patches flair up (from waxing or a blemish), this cream will absolutely make it look worse.
                  -Really not any "tint" to it at all.

                  I wish it was better than it is because I love it's all natural ingredients, but unfortunately, I'm going to have to return this one and try something else.

                  I have rosacea and this is the first product I have found that actually HELPS as opposed to hindering my condition. I normally have a bad flare up monthly, but in the 7 months that I have been using this product I have not had any issues with my rosacea. I am not saying this product has cured my condition, but it has made my life so much easier. Which is why I give it a perfect rating! The only complaint I have about this product is that it can tend to get a little oily, but if you pair it with the Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder it helps largely! THANK YOU TARTE! YOU ROCK!
