      This BB cream matches PERFECTLY with my very fair skin which is a great thing but I also have extremely dry skin, especially in these winter moths and this clings on the dry patches the worst of any BB cream I've ever used. It would be awesome if you have more oily skin because it is basically a cream to powder finish, its just not for people with dry skin.

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

            This may be marketed as a primer, but this has become my perfect foundation. The coverage is pretty light, but it is very buildable. I might add a little powder concealer if I develop a zit, but usually building up the product over the blemish will do the trick. The high SPF natural sunblock is greatly appreciated! I've been switching foundations for years and never found one that completely worked for me. This primer with a good setting powder is the winning combination for me! I tend to get oily (even with mineral power foundations), and this keeps me matte all day long. On days where I'm not so oily it can be a bit drying, but using a light moisturizer as a primer solves this. This stuff is seriously the best!

            The one issue I have is the price. I always thought that Tarte's foundations were a tad overpriced, and this is half the product of the liquid foundation for the same price. It doesn't take very much product at all to cover my face, but the price still seems steep.

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

                I was very excited to use this because I had read a review stating it was great for those who suffer from eczema on the face. NO no no! The makeup settled on and highlighted every flake of dry skin. Even on areas of my face that have normal skin. I can't stress enough how even the slightest of dry areas of skin were magnified by this make-up. Unless you have perfectly natural supple skin, don't waste your money.

                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2430045

                      The Amazonian clay in the Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 works to hydrate and brighten the skin, and this product has a more sheer finish.

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

                      BB Tinted Treatment Primer actually provides hydrating benefits, so you may not need to apply any additional moisturizer. Drier skin types may prefer to layer moisturizer under BB.

                    Would you recommend this tarte BB cream for somebody who is looking for something very sheer with perhaps a dewey finish, or different one? I've been blessed with clear and generally even-toned skin so color correction isn't an issue and I don't do full coverage creams or foundations as I prefer to look as natural as possible. My problem is sometimes my complexion looking dull, tired, and I do have under eye circles. Looking for something to brighten up my complexion and make me look a little more alive. Do you have any suggestions? I have dry and sensitive skin.
