Honest reviews


really nice but hard to match the color

The makeup is awesome, but the color is difficult to match to my skin. The sales lady at Sephora store had warned me about that. The light is too light for me and the medium is to dark. The colors do not line up with their other makeup lines so it’s a little tricky (I’m a Medium in their tinted moisturizer line). I mix the light with a powdered bronzer to get the right color for me.But the product is awesome! Has a nice light feel. Not to heavy but gives decent coverage. It is not gonna cover up major flaws, but nice for a day to day use.

Silky Velvety Skin

I’ve tried numerous drugstore BB creams and there truly is a difference in quality when you spring for tarte’s. I’m not a fan of any other Tarte product besides this one. I just mix some on my hand with NARS Illuminator in Copacabana and apply with real Techniques Foundation Brush in areas where I need coverage. It covers suprisingly well for such a lightweight formula, I have some light acne scarring and this makes covering it a breeze. Haven’t had any problems with breakouts since using this a month ago either, fyi I have pretty sensitive normal/dry skin. If there’s anyone I wouldn’t recommend this to- women with pink/red undertones because this could make you look a bit red especially mixed with the illuminator since they both have PINK UNDERTONES. 🙂

Silky Smooth

Silky Smooth, sunscreen and tinted color! Great coverage and you don’t have to use much so the tube lasts and lasts! Nice finish for the face and you look so natural. It covers imperfections beautifully!

sooo silky and smooth

I love this product! I got a small sample of this from sephora and waited and waited to try it because I didn’t think I would like it. I tried it out of desperation today and wow!! I am super impressed, and surprised! I have tried a few bb creams, but nothing like this one. The finish is powdery and light. The powdery feeling is great for fighting oily spots, great for combination skin. It feels really silky on your face and not sticky at all, in fact it’s the exact opposite of sticky. Makes my face super smooth! I got light but it is VERY pale, I’m going to need medium, but other than that, it’s surprisingly great.

great coverage but leaves creases after drying

I was looking for a matte primer that would really cling to the delicate, smooth skin by my nose and also help my matte foundation stick on top of that. I am Scottish/French and have reddish hair and some freckles. You know how that kind of skin ages: it has become thin and ruddy with some visible capillaries, although I don’t wrinkle much.This primer is a great find for the price, and I like that it contains SPF. It clings to my nose very well and lasts most of the day – the bottle says 12 hours, which is pretty accurate. However, it leaves creases anywhere my skin is dry. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, and I’ll buy it again until/unless I find something I like better. One added benefit is it seems to have cumulative treatment properties in addition to providing coverage, which I wasn’t expecting. As another reviewer said, it does an awesome job covering red by the nose, and I’m happy about the lack of shine or shimmer.

I do feel really happy that the color of this product match my skin tone perfectly. But you must do well in moisturizing your skin before you apply it, otherwise it will make your skin look a little bit dry. Once you do moisturized your skin, it will leave you a very silky touch and medium coverage finishing. It covers my skin redness very well and I’ll use it before applying powder foundation, these procedures make my skin look flawless. I love it!Update:After I applied for 4-6 hours, it was a bit more dry and too oil-controlled for me, I have combination skin but not many oil on my face, so it makes my skin feel a little OVER dry after a while, so I’ll probably use it in summer and it’s suitable for some people who have oily skin.

My everyday spf/foundation

This is a must have. It’s great coverage if you have some dark circles and slight spots from blemishes. Every spf i use on face is greasy therefore i still end up with a burn on face, but not with Tarte!! One application of this before I leave the house and my face is protected for a good 8 hours in the sun! (not sweating or in water).It glides on superrrr silky!!! Urban Decay and Smash Box do not compare to the ingredients and silky feeling

I use it as a natural-looking foundation

Got this as a sample from tarte, my favorite natural makeup company, and fell in love with it.I started getting checked out a lot more on the street and in public when I switched to this from my former liquid natural foundation (Gabriel).This just looks less like make-up and more natural. It almost doesn’t require powder over it.It does a decent job blocking my very light hyperpigmentation (PIH from former acne), and it hardly feels like anything. Absolutely love it.Tarte is an excellent company and their products can’t be beat. Ecobella is not bad either – I use Ecobella concealer.

Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer with Sunscreen – Pretty!

I love Tarte. I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I usually buy moisturizing foundation since I am over 50. Well, I put on my facial moisturizer and then this. While it was not moisturizing, it made all of my makeup stay put all day! Also, my complexion looked so pretty and smooth. I had an almost airbrushed look. I really like this. I have not found it to be drying to my skin, either. So that’s great. So far so good!
