    I love this stuff! Got it as a sample, in medium, and was hooked after day one. Tried it again the next day and yup, decided I needed this in my life. I'm tan, so medium worked great for me. It really evened out my face without looking cakey or fake.

      Amazing product! Makes your skin so soft, only complaint is that it doesn't stay all day. Works better if you cover with a powder. Will definitely buy again.

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

        I've been looking for a product that can do it all. Mattify and give a small amount of coverage, with some color correction. The catch: no cakeyness. Call me spoiled, but I like my makeup to be as close to undetectable as possible. I got a sample of this along with 2 other brands and this was the worst of them. I patted it on with my fingers and it had a very patchy consistency. It looked like there were particles of chunky powder smeared across my face. The color was light enough, for once at least. I wish tarte's packaging matched how disappointing the product inside is so I could stop being fooled.

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

          I just tried this BB in Light. For reference, I am a natural blonde, with fair/light skin that burns, then tans.

          I love the wear and how this product feels on your face- this makeup is easy to apply, looks smooth, has good coverage for a BB/primer, and lasts all day. The only downside is that the color wasn't ideal. I caught glimpses of myself throughout the day and my face looked orange in certain lighting. I just purchased the Fair shade and plan to mix the two for a customized look that fits my skin tone.

          This is a great product for those who want to look polished and cover some minor discoloration or imperfections. However, I wish there was a greater variety of shades to choose from.

                  I received Tarte Primer as a gift from a friend. At first, it seemed a little oily to me, but then I tried it again and I love it. I am of the age where I have some brown spots and red spots on my face. This primer covers these things naturally and well, plus I love that it has a 30SPF. I use it daily and cannot imagine not having it available!!!

                  • Q:

                    What is the biggest difference between this product and the tinted moisturizer? I'm looking to purchase one of the two products, as all Tarte products are great quality in my opinion. I have not had the ability to sample them both. Of the two, which would be better for redness correction and smoothing pores ?

                      This is a 2 in 1 product! It's a primer so it helps hide pores and smooth fine lines while adding a hint of color for an even skin tone without being too much. The Tinted Moisturizer is just a light moisturizer with a bit of color for a smoothing tone. The moisturizer is very light coverage, it's almost sheer. The primer is a bit thicker and gives more coverage.

                  • Q:

                    I have fair skin with pink undertones and I'm trying to find a product that I can wear outside and on the water. I'm a fitness instructor and a paddleboarder and I spend a lot of time outside from spring to summer. My body has no problem turning into a tan with sun exposure but my face does, I'm wondering if the medium color in this primer would work with my skin to give me an all over tan look without looking orange and without having to apply other stuff like a bronzer or contouring products. Or is there a better tarte product I could use for that glow with an spf in it?
