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

    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 love how this product feels on my skin. I am a easying going girl as far as make up goes. I love not having to put on 5 different products in the morning. 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++

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

          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.

                          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:

                        I was in ulta and the girl matched me to the medium-tan in the tarte bb tinted moisturizer. Would I be the same color in this? Or is it possible it's different and I should go back?

                          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.

                          Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer SPF 30 is a long-wear formula that can be worn as a light foundation, primer, moisturizer, anti-aging treatment, and sunscreen.

                          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.

                          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:

                          Absolutely! Any treatment product or moisturizer can be applied prior to this product. This product actually helps boost the efficacy of the treatment/moisturizer by "sealing" it into the skin!
