    I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It's lightweight, but has good coverage. Has a bit of shimmer in the sunlight--but not too much. Happy to have added it to my collection.

                I was hoping for something that would provide more coverage, but this doesn't do that. I have the one "illuminator" color, and while it does leave my skin with a little glow, that's about all it does, and sun protection. I have been using it under my foundation, like a moisturizer, which it works for. It would also be good on days you don't want to put a lot of make up on, like if you are at the beach, camping, doing yard work, etc. but still want something on your face to give it a healthy glow and protection.

                    This BB cream would be great if not for one thing - it's SPARKLY! The first time I put it on I thought, oh my god, I look like a Twilight vampire. It's fine to wear out at night or if you're going somewhere poorly lit, but as soon as bright light hits your face, it's all shimmery. Maybe some people like this. Me... not so much. However, other than this is really does go on and blend nicely.

                        The formulas are very similar. Both products provide sheer coverage with broad spectrum SPF 20 sun protection. Both are oil-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, formulated for all skin types, and provide light hydration. Both contain vitamins A, C, and E, chamomile, green tea, and hydrating sodium hyaluronate. Tarte's contains Amazonian Clay to balance the skin. Tarte's formula is paraben-free, while ULTA's is not.

                        BB Cream provides sheer, natural coverage. It provides SPF 20 sun protection, helps to even out skin tone, and provides lightweight hydration. It is suitable for all skin types and works great as a makeup primer applied under your foundation.
