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

I absolutely love this BB primer. I just it under the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation and it is perfect for everyday wear. It literally feels like silk on your face and you can't even tell you are wearing it. I tend to have breakouts on my chin area and I do not find that this aggravates my skin. It does provide buildable coverage but at times I consider purchasing a true foundation for going out. This is my second time buying this and I love it!

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

    I wanted to try out a BB cream to go with my foundation, and I ended up loving it by itself. It's super light compared to loose powder/matte/cream foundations and provides as-good, if not better, coverage. I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and acne scars, and it's smoothed out my complexion and hid my scars. The cream is very easy to apply.

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

    I have oily skin and I live in Florida so my skin can get very shiny! I love this because it is a primer so it doesn't add that extra moisture heaviness which is perfect for me. I can just put that or if I want a little more coverage I can use it with the a foundation powder over it, which will also help absorb all the extra oils my skin puts out. Ultimately it has made it super easy and fast to look my best without making me look like a greased up bowling ball!

              I love this product. I use it for my foundation, I use a flat foundation brush to apply and then use the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation as my "powder" over it. I get just as much coverage as I did when I used my Clinique even better foundation and stay matte powder. I still sometimes use my Clinique powder over this BB cream. The coverage if buildable, and I love that it has SPF in it. I have even started applying it over my eyelids in place of my urban decay eye primer. I do still get oily around my chin by mid day but I have that problem with every single product I use. This holds up well in the South Georgia heat and humidity.

                This takes the place of a heavier foundation. It's light, but provides just enough coverage to even skin tone and camouflage imperfections. It blends well and has a matte but not dry finish. I'm very oily, but this holds up well (as long as I blot periodically) even in the Arizona heat.

                            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. Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 features a wider range of shades. Both are great options to improve the overall appearance of skin with oil-free, light-to-medium coverage for a flawless finish.

                            We encourage you to visit your nearest ULTA Beauty store to experience the shades, textures, and consistencies of both products in person to determine which you prefer:

                            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.

                            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.
