      Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

      I didn't even know what this product was when I first got a sample of it three or four years ago. But when I go without it (as I've often skipped it or tried something else), I really notice the difference. Others comment on the glow it gives but it's completely natural, nothing like glitter. I do not need additional moisturizer with this lately, but when I am in a colder, drier climate, I would likely use a touch of additional moisture before applying this, but that's the case with almost any lightweight moisturizer.

          Comments about Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating Moisturizer:

          This goes on very smoothly and leaves my skin looking illuminated, but it does not seem to cover anything or just lightly evens skin tone. I still use concealer for blemishes but do love the light feeling it leaves on my skin. It's great for everyday running errands and such where full foundation is not needed.

            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.

              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.

                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.

                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!

                      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!
