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

    I have oily, sensitive skin and I LOVE this stuff! It doesn't cause breakouts, it provides even coverage, it blends easily and it diminishes the shine on my forehead. I mix the tan color with my Clinique skin tone corrector and I can fake a little bit of a suntan while enjoying the benefits of the SPF. I have an issue with perioral dermatitis and while it isn't enough coverage to handle a flare up at its worst, it will certainly cover a minor flare. I use this product as my foundation because I prefer a more natural look.

      I use this primer on its own. It looks so natural and it softens and brightens my skin. I love how easily it spreads. I also love that it's SPF 30.

        So I REALLY wanted to love this. But it is just ok. I apply it in the morning and by early afternoon it already starts to crease. If you have oily skin, this isn't for you. I have tried everything and it just won't stay on. I do love how light-weight it is and how easy it is to apply. Looks fantastic when you first apply it, but a couple hours later it looks terrible. I would hardly call the primer in it a primer because it doesn't prime anything, not even itself!

          I loved the coverage and color of this product and it provides an even natural looking skin tone! I really wanted it to work! While I did not have a shiny, oily nose at any point during the days I wore it, it did settled into the fine lines around my mouth and on my forehead so I had to return it. I tried it with two different primers and got the same results both days. I would not recommend for oily skin gals who have trouble with bb creams/foundations settling into fine lines but if that is not an issue for you and your main goal is to not be shiny definitely worth a try!

                I love this product- I use it in place of foundation and there is plenty of coverage. It goes on smoothly, even on dry skin. My skin tone is between light and medium, so I mix the 2 together. My only complaint is there are only 3 colors; they should expand to 6 to accommodate more skin tones.

                  I have always had extremely oily skin so foundations are always an issue with me. This product has a moderate amount of coverage with primer in it that helps it stay in place. I use this with a dusting of mineral powder and my face looks healthy and not cakey even with having older skin. My sister and mom both have oily and sensitive skin and have always used a higher end foundation but for the past year they have been using this and love it.

                  Light was too orange, fair is too white. I can't afford to purchase both and mix them. I really wanted to like this. I've tried and studied every drug store brand, this product shouldbhe sold along side them. It is way over priced. If it was half the price it is now ($38) maybe Id buy it on sale. It doesn't have any of those toxic/cancer-causing/non-biodegradable ingredients, I think. That about all this has going for it. I think all cosmetics should be regulated and not have those nasty ingrediants. But thats for another website.

                      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.
