    I bought this after sampling it, to find a summer BB. I live in the desert so sweating off your makeup happens. This dries out your skin, even with a moisturizer under it. I'm sure this would work well with oily skin since it seems to absorb every drop and then some.

        Really light, great color match, and i love the texture. It doesn't last as long as i'd like, but makeup melts off me really fast, so YMMV.

          I started using this product a year ago and I have never been happier with a tinted moisturizers performance! My favorite part about it is that it really allows you to build on the coverage and can be used as just a primer or a light foundation. Great for everyday use and I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive or oily skin!!

            My daily ritual after showering is to apply my AM moisturizer mixed with 2 drops of the Maracuza Oil and then the Tarte BB cream over that. Being over 65 I like a more natural look. With blush and some eye makeup, that lasts until bedtime when I use my Clarisonic and my PM moisturizer mixed with 2 more drops of the Tarte oil. I will never be without this product as it makes my routine so easy and fits my Florida lifesyle. Thanks Ulta for keeping my Tarte products available.

                  This has got to be the best makeup purchase ever. I'm so thrilled with the application, the tint, the coverage. It's a BB cream with a built in primer, yet covers better than foundation?? What?? Absolutely in love! I have such a hard time with finding the right shades for my skin tone. Most are orange and make foundation lines inevitable. This has such a natural tone, it blended with my skin perfectly and effortlessly. I thought I'd try just the sample to ensure the product would work for me but apparently it's cheaper that route anyhow. I immediately recommended to friends.

                    I would say it long lasting but definitely not a 12 hours!

                      After feeling like the Goldie locks of be creams, this shade is the only one that looks shine free, smooth, and not orange! Love this product especially in summer it stays even though you sweat and works better in terms of coverage than some liquid foundations. Amazing!

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

                      I love this product. But if you can, buy the travel sized one because you can get .5 oz for $10 or 1 oz for $35 in the full size. I bought the travel sized one in light and it made me orange the first time I put it on because I got way too much. I am VERY pale. Like pale as in I have to use the lightest foundation shade in every brand I've used. With this product a little goes a long way if it's a tad too dark for you. It has pretty good coverage for a bb primer too. I use this with some concealer instead of foundation sometimes and I'm a full coverage kind of girl. Absolutely love this product.

                          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.
