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

    This is my all in one - it's my sunblock, foundation, and primer.

    Since using this I have received many compliments on my skin and it is 100% natural looking. A small amount provides amazing coverage and it doesn't get funky as the day goes on. In fact my make-up stays in place and it doesn't need to be reapplied.

    At the end of the day, I use my trusty make-up remover wipe, wash my face and it's all gone. Very easy to remove, doesn't cause breakouts or clogged pores, and provides good protection when I'm outdoors. I love this product so much, that I bought a Tart mascara, and I am now officially hooked on Tarte cosmetics.

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

      I initially bought the travel size to give it a shot and immediately fell in love with the texture of this product! It feels silky to the touch, and is substantial yet still lightweight. It performed ok being applied with just fingertips, but I eventually purchased the It OMG Foundation brush to apply with and my love affair became official. Easy to blend, minimal streaking which can be very easily blotted and blended in.

      I originally bought is as a primer base for foundation, which it works very well for, but the coverage for me is *just right* for everyday wear on its own. My skin is pretty average with slight red blotchiness in the cheeks, which this product makes disappear with ease. I'd call it a slightly matte finish with a hint of luminous glow.

      I do have one qualm about it though - it's slightly on the matte side with a drier finish, and when I have dry/textured spots it tends to accentuate them a bit. I've learned to use extra moisturizer on the problem spots before applying and it minimizes this effect, but I get the impression that for someone with drier skin or combination skin prone to breakouts, this might not be the best solution for you. I did notice in the first few weeks of use I had a couple break outs on the forehead (which is very rare for me), but I think it was due to the fact that it has more staying power than the BB I was using previously. I've upped my removal/cleansing routine and the problem has pretty much gone away.

      Overall, I'm madly in love with the Tarte BB and it will be my go-to product for the foreseeable future!

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

      I used this product for a few months and loved it. It went on smoothly, looked totally natural, felt like nothing at all, and I thought I had found my new favorite "foundation" -- then my skin decided it was tired of it and started to break out when I wore it, so I had to return it. Great product though otherwise. If your skin isn't prone to breakouts I'd definitely recommend giving it a try! Disappointed that it didn't work out for me in the end.

        This stuff feels SO GOOD when applying it to your skin. I was skeptical at first because I had been betrayed by many liquid foundations in the past, but this one hits the nail on the head.

                  This BB cream is better than any other BB cream I've tried. The coverage is light to medium and it seems to smooth out my lines a bit. The light color seems to work with my pale February skin tone, but I have a feeling I may need to blend with medium in a month or two. Relatively long lasting for a BB and nice consistency.

                  I love the feel and coverage of this product! I didn't give 5 stars because light was too light and medium was too dark and yellow. I didn't want to waste my money so I bought light to mix with the medium. Definitely needs more color options for better matching. As much as I like this product I won't be willing to buy two again.

                        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.

                    • Q:

                      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.
