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

    I have olive toned skin on the lighter/fair side of the spectrum. I have acne scars and general blotchiness that I don't love. I usually have to use a BB cream plus concealer plus primer plus some sort of brightening agent. This is all of those in one. It goes on like a primer (that smooth silinoney feel) and blends beautifully. A little goes a long way and the coverage is perfect. It's not so full coverage that it looks like I'm wearing a mask but full enough that I only need a dot or two of concealer on active pimples.
    I've been using this for a week or so and I've had friends and coworkers ask me if I got a facial or done something new because my skin looks like skin (and not like makeup, very important) and it looks fabulous.

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

      I am a 33 year old woman with extremely sensitive skin. My face has a few crinkles around the eyes, olive-green undertones, a pink scar from a biopsy, and patches of seborrhea and rosacea (both currently controlled so that you wouldn't know I have them unless I let my care routine slip). I never dreamed that something that is essentially a BB cream could give me enough coverage. I was really looking for a primer to wear under the Naked Urban Decay foundation that I purchased. My goal has always been to just even out my complexion without looking like I'm wearing makeup. The Naked foundation just looked sheer, and appeared to be sitting on top of my skin instead of blending in, despite various brushes and application techniques. So, when I bought the Tarte BB cream, I used it as a primer- Oh, what perfect skin it gave me! It feels like silk going on. I use my fingers because I love the sensation of smoothing this over my skin. I had discovered that I don't even need the foundation on top of this- I now wear this as my only face perfecting product, with just a bit of blush and highlight. It lasts all day for me, from 8 am to 7 pm. By 5-6 o'clock I've got a bit of dew, but the product stays in place. It does not crease or move on my oily skin. The MOST AMAZING part of this product is that it does not irritate my sensitive, seborrhea-prone skin with tiny areas of rosacea. I have worn it every day for 2 weeks without a single tingle/prickle/flake/etc. I even started letting it truly be my moisturizer, instead of layering it over La Roche Posay Rosaliac. So, my morning face = wash with Noble Zinc soap, apply a serum, and apply the Tarte BB Cream. Done. I am allergic to most sunscreens- the only normal sunscreen that I can wear on my face without issues is the Neutrogena Baby Pure face sunblock. Thankfully, this cream contains the same sunblock ingredients! My only wish is that I had gone with a shade darker. I have the shade "light", which looks dark when it comes out the tube. It does blend to a very light color. I can pull it off in the winter, but will have to buy the Medium for sure when summer comes. I also don't know how it will do during exercise/sweat- I usually run during my lunch breaks, but am injured right now. I would like for this to stay in place to provide sun protection during my midday runs- will have to test this out in a month when I'm allowed to work out again! P.S. I am buying this for my mother, I love it so much!

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

        I was so excited to try this product after reading so many positive reviews. I was very disappointed when I actually tried it, though. It feels velvety smooth going on and has a nice light coverage, however it completely dried my skin out. I do have naturally drier skin but have used lots of BB creams in the past and have always had good results. I just look ashy and gross with this on. I'm going to hold onto it and try again in the summer, however for something touted as a skin treatment it did not deliver as I had hoped, especially considering its price tag.

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

          I got this in the color "Fair" as a sample and it was far too light for me. I mixed it with my It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness (as thats a bit darker and has a more fuller coverage) and the two mixed is the perfect color for me! I have Rosacea and it's hard to find something to cover me, especially being fair. It's BBR is great but too dark by itself for me in winter. My skin looks so natural with this combo. I haven't loved a color match this much in forever. For those with more normal skin with less to cover this by itself will be great. If your like me and have a good amount of redness to conceal mixing it with BBR is great! And I'm sure BBR would work with any shade and offer the fuller coverage you want while still remaining light and comfortable to wear everyday.

              After talking with one of the employees, she recommended this for me to try and I'm so glad I took her advice!!!! This stuff goes on like silk and even makes my skin feel like silk. I especially love the fact that with this makeup I didn't get my usual t-zone shine after the first hour of application. Also, the makeup stayed true to it's color and didn't start to get that orangey look that I have always had other make ups do to me. Even though it stayed on as well as it did, it also came off very easily with coconut oil. I will definitely be using this stuff as long as it is available... :)

                        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.
