        I've used this a long time everyday instead of any foundation. Coverage is good and natural. Love the feel. Evens out my skin tone and a little extra covers spots well. I set with a little powder. I've tried many BB creams and this is the best!

              Fairly new to liquid foundation, but as you 'mature', it makes sense to switch. Sales person recommended this to me, I have warm-yellow tones but this is a bit pinker. Goes on heavier than my Buxom liquid foundation - more matte than dewy. Still decent coverage. Just trying to find a decent cc undereye cream to match.
              First week I had a small break-out in chin area. Stopped using it for a few days, am now re-experimenting to see if it was a one-time fluke or something in the ingredients.

              I have been looking for a BB cream that would resemble the BB cream I bought years ago in London, Boots store, called 17 (or seventeen or sth like that). That BB cream was fair enough for my skin, the coverage was amazing, it did not irritate my skin or cause breakouts and all in all, it's the BB cream I compare all other BB creams to. While this Tarte BB cream is not bad, I feel like it doesn't do much for me. I have problematic skin and I expected better coverage. It's great for lighter skin because it does not get darker once it's oxidized and the shade actually is fair like the bottle says. It did not cause outbreaks for me, it's light and leaves my skin all soft and all that jazz... I just wished for better coverage, that's all.

              I'm normally right in between fair and light. I purchased the light because I had been tanning and was a little worried when I saw how dark the cream was.
              I put it on my face and not only did it feel AMAZING, the coverage was great and the color blended perfectly! And it feels so light. I'm purchasing my second tube tonight!

              • Q:

                Most products I see with an SPF need to be reapplied every 2 hours. Since this is a 12 hour product is the SPF good for 12 hours too, or does it need to be reapplied?

                  This product offers light-medium coverage, SPF protection & nourishing skincare benefits. It primes & protects while softening the look of pores. However, if you're looking for an exclusive pore-minimizing primer, we recommend trying our clean slate poreless 12-hour perfecting primer.
