      Its great coverage and a sunscreen in one. I love the color and that it is buildable. It lasts a long time but can easily touch up later in day without trouble. And it doesn't have a bunch of chemicals. I just wished it contained more product in the tube. I'd be surprised if it lasts a month.

          Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

          This is an amazing bb primer for any foundation or powder. It's lightweight and doesn't feel like make-up at all. The texture is real soft and it's not cakey. It sets to a powder finish, which looks great on oily skin. It helps control excess shine throughout the day and helps keep your make-up on longer. It also blurrs the appearance of your pores and gives light to moderate coverage. It is buildable if you need it to be a full coverage.

          I recommend you use a moisturizer under this bb primer. If you don't it might look a little too powdery in a couple of hours. This alone doesn't provide moisture so make sure you apply one before this bb primer.

          I have been using this for many months and it has improved the texture of my skin and also diminish some of my scarring. My pores have decrease in size as well. The best part is, that it doesn't break out my skin at all. It's perfect for sensitive skin.

              Comments about Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen:

              I bought this product 3 months ago and used it for about 2 weeks. It was AMAZING! I usually wear bare minerals and found the BB cream was all I needed. It covered great and my face looked perfect! Then all of the sudden my face broke out in awful acne, which I am still getting facials 3 months later to fix (almost there though). So I would recommend you try this product just BE WARE it could break your skin out bc it is thick. I was very sad to stop using this!

                  It's very soft. The coverage is natural (not too heavy, but still covers). The tone works for me (I can't wear any warm or yellow undertoned make-up). I only wish it was a little less expensive. :)

                  I was skeptical of this at first with the claims of replacing my moisturizer and primer especially with my oily skin. honestly this stuff is magic in a tube. the only skin issues I habe is that its oily and I have large pores and some redness and this takes care of it. this combined with the rainforest after dark all in one palette made my makeup routine 10 minutes tops and as a mom of 3 year old twins its god send to not walk out of the house looking like a hot mess lol.

                      This product is oil-free, formulated for all skin types including oily, acne-prone skin, and provides a natural (demi-matte) finish. We recommend Tan for those with deeper complexions. Please note that all shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store:

                      This product is oil-free and recommended for all skin types including oily skin. CC Primer would be better if your primary concern is to color-correct/neutralize redness, discoloration, or dull skin, though BB Primer also helps to promote even skin tone with its light-to-medium buildable coverage.

                      Both are great options to improve the overall appearance of skin with oil-free, light-to-medium coverage for a flawless finish.

                      A:

                      You can use this product alone or under foundation, depending on how much coverage you're seeking to achieve. Tarte BB on its own provides sheer, natural coverage, so if you're desiring medium-to-full coverage, we'd suggest layering foundation over it (its priming benefits will ensure smooth, lasting application). If you only need spot coverage, you can use Tarte BB with a concealer like Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Waterproof Concealer to hide any imperfections:
