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

      I was looking to change brands of bb cream, because my old one left my skin looking way too shiny in addition to being too sheer to mean much in the way of coverage. This product, on the other hand, did everything I wanted and then some. I got the matte, buildable coverage I wanted, and I also got sunscreen and a really smooth, silky feel during application. I have a feeling I will eventually transition all of my makeup to Tarte products.

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

          This is a medium coverage. However, I find that this is a better concealer than my Tarte concealer. I love it because it is anti-aging and a foundation together. It dries a natural looking matte. It is fairly natural looking. For more coverage, you can do 2 layers (med/heavy coverage) or put a foundation powder on top. I use a beauty blender. For under-eye concealer I use my finger. I can't believe how much it covers dark circles. This goes on easy and dries super fast. They have better shade options for olive skinned people in this BB line than their foundation. It works on my T-zone and my dry cheek area. It stays in place once it is dry. I did have to wear it once while running and it stayed put.
          This is far more matte than the Too Faced BB cream which always looks shiny and gives large pores.

            I test tried Tarte, it Comsetics, Urban Decay and Smashbox. I'm a big Smashbox and Makeup Forever fan but Tarte went on very smooth, covered my freckles and has a matte finish so I don't have to use powder.

            It held up pretty well to Houston heat and humidity in June. I don't feel like I had to reapply but you probably could without caky feeling.

            If you want the dewy look then try Urban Decay. Tarte is a little lighter on moisturizer in my opinion.

            I have tan, moderately dry skin, 42 yrs old and live in Texas.

              I use this as the primer for the Tarte cream powder Confidence foundation. I get great coverage with this combination and it lasts all day. The SPF makes it a must have especially in the hot summer months.

                  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?
