    This product keeps me matte all day, gives me great natural looking coverage, and protects my skin with SPF 15. It's a perfect primer, my make up looks the same from morning until I wash it off at night. I recommend this product to all my friends, and they love it too!

    I use this product every day as a moisturzer/make-up. It also has a very good sunscreen. Feels very smooth going on. Is very light and natural with good color correction. Doesn't look greasy or thick as some do. Sometimes I use Tarte's CC stick over, but mostly use this alone. I'm hooked.

      I LOVE THIS STUFF. It is the absolute best skin care product I've ever used. I can never use drugstore products or heavy foundations for my skin since it would always break me out. When I started using this however, my skin actually improved and it hid my giant pores. I never had to use concealer when I used this. Cons: need more color options, and rubs off easily. I would set this with powder to make sure it doesn't rub off.

        I use this both as a primer under foundation, and alone for more casual days. It has just a hint of color which is perfect. It gives my face a nice smooth finish without a heavy makeup or feel. It blends nicely and stays put all day.

          A close family member of mine recommended this product on me, and after reading many reviews, I immediately purchased it. It is my all-time favorite BB cream!
          I have normal-to-dry skin type and I bought this product in the color medium. I have a lot of redness in my T-zone and cheeks, and this product was able to eliminate it with just one use. It stays on for hours afterwards and looks very natural.
          I am absolutely in love with this product!

I moisturize, put this BB cream on, add some eyeliner and mascara and I am ready to go. It looks natural and covers up imperfections in skin tone. A++

                This product must have a lot of silicones in it as it has a lot of slip in application. It was so slippery feeling that I did not like it. I am also disappointed as the color choices are a lot more limited than the tinted moisturizer (which I LOVE). I also found that I broke out from this product if I wore it more than one day in a row. The coverage is great, but color and break out factors over rule. I recommend buying the Tarte tinted moisturizer instead.

                    I use the tarte bb tinted 12 hr primer in light and also the maracuja ceaseless concealer in light medium under my dark circles. I have rosacea and acne prone, combination skin with age spots, large pores and all that goes with being 60. Could you give me foundation choices that would give me more coverage and long lasting? I have been pleased with the tarte products and need all the help I can get for younger looking skin.

                      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.

                      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:
