Most Helpful Positive Review HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I just picked this up, and I am already in love. I was looking for a very sheer coverage bb cream and the girl helping me recommended this. It is exactly what I've been needing. I have fair skin and wanted something that wouldn't cover up my freckles, but still evened me out and covered up redness. And this is doing exactly that. It looks so natural and its SO velvety soft. It's the perfect balance between matte and dewy-- i have combination skin, which gets very dry in some areas and very oily in others, but its been working well with my skin and im so relieved. My face feels very hydrated, soft, and clean. It barely feels like im wearing makeup, it literally melted into my skin. I would definitely recommend using a beauty blender or a brush to apply this though and NOT your fingers. I purchased this in the shade Fair.
Most Helpful Critical Review Gave a dry patch skin look, broke up other products on face
I like tartes tinted spf primer, I thought this was going to be the same for a little less but no... I am going to return it as quick as I bought it. The color was fine, I use tinted spf as my foundation, I like extremely light skin like coverage. I put this over my spf moisturizer and it immediately broke up my face somehow. It gave me a dry patch look to my cheeks I was very confused. I do not have dry patches or dry skin. I only had on moisturizer and people use more products then that versus no products before makeup application. I had to wash my face all over again and it seemed a bit like dry to wash off. I don't know , this product was not it. The tarte spf tinted primer is better but costly for the small tube.

I struggle with oily skin and I have tried every kind of foundation, both liquid and powder, that is recommended for my skin type. None of them have come even close to this product. I wore it all day today and only had to blot once. Normally, I do it at least 3 times. At the end of the day (after about 11 hours of wearing it) the only part that had come off was my nose, because I was wearing a mask for a couple of hours. Dare I say, this may just be my holy grail!!
Like applying liquid powder to your face.
Andio from Ohio
This product was horrible. It felt like liquid powder. It was very dry and matte. I have normal dry skin and this just accentuates every flaw and was very dry like talc. Returned sadly! I was hoping this would be a winner from Tarte!
Great coverage with lightweight feel
Mrs D.Light from CA
After months of covid19 and not wearing makeup, I found my previous foundation felt- like a mask, heavy and suffocating. I have redness in my cheeks that I wanted to mute and always wore heavy coverage matte foundations. I was looking for a casual wear coverage for those lightly wear makeup days. What I got is so filter soft, breathable, and perfect coverage. This will now be my primary go to no matter the day. I use a hyaluronic serum before this tint, set with a loose setting powder, and have no issues with them working together. I do however use a concealer for my eyes just to brighten/contour so that I don't have a monotone face.
Quin from Mid-West
Grabbed this one when Tarte had a sale for half off, thought it might be good to use for the summer with the SPF. Totally blown away, I've been using every day and it gives great coverage (I use a beauty blender and I get medium coverage), doesn't settle into fine lines (I've got a crease between my eyes and a dry nose that so many products settle into, but not this!), and lasts all day (on days when I'm at work/indoors - when I'm sweating and outside it does slip a bit in a few places, but I found that just going over it with a damp beauty blender fixed it instantly). Will definitely be repurchasing for my every day makeup!
Saraaaa from Phoenix
I'm sooo surprised about this product. I'm just really surprised that a tinted moisturizer could have such perfect coverage! Like it makes your skin look flawless. Like someone else said in the comments you really don't need concealer or foundation with this it's so perfect! Wow. I swear.
Taylor from Pittsburgh
I love this stuff! I like a full coverage foundation but don't like the heaviness of some! Trust me, this stuff gives me the full coverage I love but feels so lightweight. I also have pretty oily skin and this stays on better than any other foundations I have tried. Will be using permanently now.
Very smooth, but...
christimvas from TX
I purchased this on the tarte website as part of their custome kits and I'll agree with the rest of the reviews stating this is very smooth; it's almost like a whipped cream consistency. It has good coverage but I want to say a little goes a long way. The first couple of times I've worn this it has caked up some around my mouth, but I will keep trying it. I live in Texas where the temperature is usually 100+ and having to wear a mask does not help at all!
Better than Bareminerals
Iz from Holland Michigan
This product is fantastic. I do not need to wear foundation or concealer in addition to it. It has a creamy texture and matte finish. I was using bare minerals foundation and it was causing me to break out, but thanks to this product all my acne is gone. This product has great coverage and does not transfer easily onto clothing. No cons.
Katurgeon from Washington State
This is the ONLY foundation that work when my dry skin is acting up. It gives me just enough coverage and looks natural. I usually set it with powder to stop any movement that it would otherwise have.
If you have dry skin not for you
Jackie from Nebraska
I wanted to like it because the texture was light and had a good "primer feel" but the coverage is not for dry skin. It magnifies the problem areas.
Kylie from Michigan
Love this! I was looking for an all in one(sunscreen, moisturizer and something for a little bit of coverage) and this is amazing!! It is the perfect amount of coverage and feels very lightweight going onto the skin. It is easily blendable!! I will definitely be back for more!
Weightless and smooth
NickelB from St Paul MN
Goes on so smoothly and easily for quick coverage! Good coverage but so light weight- feels like nothing on my skin. Blurry pores and imperfections nicely. And love that it has SPF in it!
Eli from Miami
Makes skin super smooth , blends well , and high coverage for it being a tinted moisturizer, if you want coverage that looks like skin this is it ! Best day time product I put on my face.
Meg from Florida
Love this product! Provides enough coverage to cover an red spots and acne but doesn't feel heavy. I live in Florida and in the summer it's too hot for foundation and this is the perfect fit! A little goes a long way and love the light coverage! Lots of color options to get the perfect fit!
I would 1000% buy this product again
Kam from Texas
I have never left a review before but I just had to with this. I have very textured combo skin that gets oily in the summer and this is a game changer. If you are someone that likes to wear tinted moisturizer but it makes you oily get this!!! It has great coverage and really does blur textures but also doesn't dry down greasy like some others. I will 100% be repurchasing this!
Fitness model from Florida
I LOVE this product. It's perfect for the days you don't want to wear full face makeup! It blurs imperfections & covers nicely.
Rach from TN
I have very oily acne prone skin. The lady at Ulta said this is not hydrating and would not break me out. When I used this occasionally I would be fine. (Weekends) but I bought this for the beach and used it every day outside and I now have 6 new large pimples to deal with! For the price I expect perfection. Don't get this if you have my skin type!
Ar from FL
Way too much money to not work very well. This didn't blur anything and looks greasy on my face. I have combination skin so I'm dry in the cheeks and around my mouth. I won't buy this ever again but too expensive not to try and use it up.
Reccomend for big pores to smooth out
Ana622 from Miami FL
I bought this a couple of months ago when I wanted to switch from a full coverage Foundation to just a skin tint, and I'm really glad that I tried this one out. It's not really a tinted moisturizer but kind of, of a tinted primer based on the texture. The texture feels like a silky smooth (like the smash box photo finish primer) but it has a tint to it. i personally love the silky texture, helps with my pores and i like how it sets on its own. since its hugh quality, it stays on its own for hours.
Dry Skin beware
Jessica0216 from Ohio
I wouldn't say I have super dry skin, but I made sure to have my rosehip oil and moisturizer on prior to applying this product. I read from the comments that it was sheer, and I want to emphasize that it is VERY sheer. It went on fine and I think was able to mask my redness but it does not last all day and emphasizes your dry areas. Will be returning for their tinted moisturizer instead.
Love this for aging skin
Cachmehere from Phoenix, AZ
I am 51,live in Phoenix (dry) and my skin has been changing recently as I moved here from the Midwest where it SAS humid. I normally use Estee Lauder double wear, but wanted to try this underneath as some added coverage. I applied this and fell in love with the look, never applied my foundation, just put powder over this. Today I applied tarte shape tape concealer under my eyes for a little extra coverage to see what it looks like and it looks amazing. This product stays put from 6am until I take it off at night. I have oily skin with some wrinkles and it doesn't sink at all.
Great for oily skin!!
Ashley from Florida
Love this product for my oily skin!! Beautiful finish and blur technology!!
Finally found the one
Jocy from Santa cruz
Love this product! Finally found my foundation which has take me months and lots of testing. As I have dry skin it's been hard to find the right one and this by far has been the best. Love that it blurs too! Absolutely love the sheer natural look coverage.
My favorite skin tint!
Chan from Wilmington, NC
I love this product. It is silky soft and goes on great. It isn't "full coverage" in my opinion, but it sits beautifully on the skin and is sheer in a good way. It also doesn't break me out, and a lot of foundations/tinted moisturizers do. I wish I got more product for the price but it's worth it.
my every day base
shelby from St. Louis
I love this stuff. This is what i use for every day because the shade is perfect, it is easy to apply, and lasts all day.
