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

    This product acts as a primer as well as a foundation, however, I still use a primer under it for a smoother finish. I have been putting a small amount on my finger tip, putting it in "blotches" around the center of my face, blending out with my fingertips, and then going in with a damp blender ball and blending it fully. I have really like how natural this looks while still covering up my discoloration and blemishes. The only thing that I am not liking is the "sticky" feeling it leaves on my skin. This could be happening for various reasons, but it's something that I hope to combat. Regardless, I will continue to use this product in place of liquid foundation for the summertime.

                      Yes, because of the BB Tinted Treatment's priming benefits, it performs beautifully underneath your foundation! It helps to ensure smooth application and to extend your foundation's wear, as well as provide a bit of extra coverage.

                      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.

                      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.
