Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

I have rosacea prone sensitive skin and really needed something to cover my skin that had SPF in it. I do not usually use Tarte products, but I heard good things about this BB cream. I have dry skin and have to moisturize before I apply this product so it does emphasize my dry skin. I bought this size just to try out the product. The dark pigmentation may me an issue for someone with lighter skin complexions. I am fairly light but I need something that has a yellow tint to it so it can mask my redness. This usually lasts on my skin about 4 hours without wearing down. Due to SPF only lasting about 2-3 hours I reapply this after my first application several hours later very lightly. I mainly use this for the coverage (which looks very natural) and for the SPF. If you have dry sensitive rosacea skin this stuff will help you with coverage and sun protection for the days you do not want to wear a full face.

what an awful product

By JuJu

from NYC

Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

The "light" Tarte BB is way too dark and ORANGE! I can't believe that most reviews for this are positive, I don't see how this could be a match for people with darker skin than mine, either. What a woeful misfire for Tarte. I returned it.

      Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

      The "light" primer is SO DARK. I have a true olive skin tone, my skin tone is by no means the lightest, but also isn't a medium tone. I think the "light" is more appropriate for someone with a medium skin tone, so for the porcelain or fair skin tone beauties out there be careful with this!

          Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

          I bought a travel size of this during the 21 Days of Beauty. I am shocked at how much coverage it has while still being light weight. I tend to have dry skin but this is quite moisturizing. I plan to buy full size.
          For reference, I'm Stromboli in Nars, NC30/40 in MAC, 230/260 in Fenty Beauty and Medium is perfect for me in this.

          Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

          I bought the travel-size product to trial this BB Cream because I have sensitive skin. I love how smooth this product is, the fact the coverage is buildable, and that my skin doesn't break out or react when wearing it. I find that it blends well with all my make up. Despite its buildable coverage, I still find it isn't as full as I wished but I'm still pleased with the product! Also, given my sensitive, fair skin, I have to wear sunscreen under my foundation and I love that this doesn't affect its smooth application.

            I don't use this often, but when I need to look my best, I use it over the Tarte tinted BB cream. It takes years off my face and is so light, I don't feel like I'm wearing make up. I hate the feeling of foundation and powders. You don't need any with this product. My skin is sensitive and this product is very gentle and never causes break outs.

                This product is a gem. Like all of several Tarte products I've tried, it does not disappoint. It is super soft and light and absorbs quickly. It makes me feel better about sun exposure because I can apply it liberally to even the most sensitive eye areas. It is a great base for makeup, especially if you are light skinned and going for a natural look. Plus, it improves your skin over time so you can toss out your foundation and flaunt your truly beautiful, natural skin tone rather than weighing yourself down.

                Comments about Tarte Travel Size BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30:

                I like this product a lot. I decided to invest in it because I was so tired of wearing heavy foundation in the summer only to have it sweat off. It gives me the right amount of coverage and it blends in nicely. I don't feel like it sits on my skin and it does last for a very long time. Definitely one of the better bb creams I've tried, it's smooth on my skin. Love it!

                  Overall I really like this BB cream. I have oily skin and it does a great job keeping my skin matte and making my pores look smaller. I use it has a primer under my foundation. My only con is the medium shade is darker than I thought it would be.

It is suitable for all skin types and features a silky, lightweight texture. We recommend the Light shade.
