        I love the illuminating BB cream from Ulta. It's lightweight but has good coverage. The illuminating option gives a nice natural glow without being heavy or shiny. There is a color to it, but since I'm very fair, it matches perfectly. I will definitely buy this product again!

            This is equal to high priced BB creams. It adds a slight glow and hides small wrinkles and flaws. I tried it because it was on sale and got hooked. I continue to buy it instead of the expensive brands I previously used.

              I tend to favor towards hinted moisturizers but this is really great. I have T-zone combination skin and often times my cheeks dries out.

              This BB cream covers great and makes my skin look dewey and it's light on my face. AND this is inexpensive compared to other BB creams.

              New favorite! I use it daily on my face

                    I really believe that you truly get what you pay for, so I typically only shop on the prestige side of the store. However, I got this product as a free promotion and decided to give it a whirl. I'm impressed! It's got a good, lightweight coverage that is perfect for days when you don't want to do the full prime and foundation. My go-to for Saturday morning errand running. My only critique is that the color is a little dark. I'm typically somewhere in the medium beige range in ever brand. I got a "light" in this and it seems a bit dark. Fortunately, it's super blendable so it hasn't really been an issue. Just an FYI for those ordering online.

                        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.

                        Yes, this BB cream works beautifully under foundation due to its built-in priming benefits! It smooths skin's texture for even application, plus extends the wear of your foundation.

                        A:

                        Because this product features a silicone base, we do not recommend mixing it with your moisturizer. Instead, apply your moisturizer first, then layer this product over top. We recommend using your fingers to apply it to the skin. Once applied, you can blend and buff using a makeup brush or sponge, depending on your preference, or you can blend using your fingers.
