a little goes along way. Put on my face and neck area, with a touch of bronzer blush on the cheeks, good to go.

      This product really does help my very oily skin not get that mid-day, greasy shine which has been the bane of my existence, Ugh!! I am an African American woman with suntan skin tone, large pores on my cheeks and forehead areas, 56 years old and my face is still extremely oily sometimes a mixture of oily, dry skin (in the winter) which most products do not address especially in mature skin….until now. Thank you SO much TARTE!!

            This is a wonderful BB Cream. I started out with this BB cream, went to another brand and came back. Since I have oily skin I use a primer before I put this on and then follow it up with a powder to set it. Tarte BB does not break me out and it looks great. I just wish that there was a larger selection of colors to chose from.

              I got this last weekend and have only worn it a couple of times but I am so impressed with it. I spent all day out in 90+ degree weather and have very oily skin, so one would think I would look like a hot mess at the end of the day, but my skin still looks and feels great! This product didn't melt off my face like most foundations do, however this is the first BB cream I have tried so I don't know how it compares to others, but being that I didn't have to touch it up, just blot my face a couple of times, I don't think I'll be trying others.

                Wow! Is all I can say!!! I tried this product as a sample n had to go pick up the full size bottle whn I was done!... It' was a little pricey but well worth it!.... I have extremely oily skin n this works great as a light coverage or as a primer as directed...... It minimizes the shine for me 90%!!! .... All though I still get a little shine.... Something I can def bear with!

                  First off, I have oily/acne prone skin. I've used countless foundations trying to find something that I could use as my go-to foundation. I actually was shown this as a primer but I'm wearing it as my base. I finish it off with finishing powder and it's wonderful! Not only do I get the benefits of a primer but also a BB with SPF. So far it's kept my oiliness at bay for most of the day. So I'm really loving this!!

                    I was looking for a BB cream in an Ulta store and every one I picked up had a yellow undertone. I have fair skin and the yellows do not compliment me at all! I asked for assistance and we went through 5 more creams and found this one. It is great! I don't cake on any product and most days just do a translucent powder over some concealer for dark circles. This is light enough that I would use everyday and it could also be used just as a foundation if I need it.

                        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.

                        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.

                        Both are great options to improve the overall appearance of skin with oil-free, light-to-medium coverage for a flawless finish.

                        A:

                        You can use this product alone or under foundation, depending on how much coverage you're seeking to achieve. Tarte BB on its own provides sheer, natural coverage, so if you're desiring medium-to-full coverage, we'd suggest layering foundation over it (its priming benefits will ensure smooth, lasting application). If you only need spot coverage, you can use Tarte BB with a concealer like Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Waterproof Concealer to hide any imperfections:

                        A:

                        Yes, we highly recommend BB creams for those with combination skin! You will find that this product helps to balance moisture and oil and adds a silky smooth texture to the skin. It's ideal to use as a primer prior to foundation application, because it will help to minimize flakiness and improve skin texture for a smooth canvas. It also extends foundation's wear!

                        If you have issues with foundation wearing off, we recommend trying Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen, which features 12 hours of full coverage wear:
