Hello all! I'm super excited to tell you all about the newest addition to my BB cream collection! Tarte's New BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer.
First lets see what Tarte says: "Indulge your skin with tarte's innovative BB tinted treatment primer, a powerful multi-tasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-aging treatment and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow. " (source)
(awesome color match!-Fair)
This is a tinted BB Cream and primer; meaning you can wear it alone, or underneath your normal foundation (BB Cream..etc..). Its touted as long wearing (12 hours), and I did honestly put it to the test. On my oily skin it wore well for 9-10 hours before I noticed fading.
The coverage on this is light. It'll even out your skin tone a bit, but wont cover any dark circles, freckles..etc. For the spots where I needed more coverage, I was able to build it up, but only slightly. If you use too much..it begins to look cakey.
This feels incredibly light on my skin. When I wore it alone (and under my Bare Minerals foundation), I didnt even feel like I had anything on my face (love that!). A little goes a long way here..so you dont need too much.
There's so much I love about this! Aside from the light feel on my face, and the fact that it wears nicely under my foundation , I love that it has spf! Also, as an added little bonus..it has the expiration date on the back. I never know when to throw away my foundations..so that little bonus on the back made me smile. Did I forget to mention there's 4 shades available? That means there should be one for everyone!
Overall: This is great. It works excellent as a primer, and is also great when worn alone. Its a bit pricey at 34$ , but its a multitasker!
I dig multitaskers.
