TMG Faves: Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer SPF 30

Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer SPF 30 [$34] Indulge your skin with tarte’s innovative BB tinted treatment.  A powerful multi-tasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-aging treatment and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow.  I wore this practically from November through the new year and I LOVED the coverage.  This is not heavy but NOT like a run of the mill tinted moisturizer either.  This one COVERS like a foundation but feels light AND thanks to the added primer it offers 12 hour wear.

Tarte BB Cream

The Rundown:

  • Fair
  • Light
  • Medium
  • Medium-Tan (NEW shade)
  • Tan

I am also a big fan of applying this with a brush too like this one so you can control the amount you use.  With this one, you do NOT need a lot so the brush helps with application in that regard. The formula feels silky, goes on smooth and blends easily.  Worn alone or as the perfect base for makeup, this 12-hour, age-defying, oil-free BB offers light-to-medium, buildable coverage that helps even skintone and other skin imperfections while diffusing light to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. The creamy, silky formula goes on smooth and blends easily, leaving you with a natural-looking, flawless finish with a broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 30 that offers ideal protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays.  This product contains tarte’s tripleB complex, a proprietary blend of natural diamond dust, plants, and lipoamino acids that diffuses light and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while improving the appearance of skin luminosity.

I also LOVE that they have a Fair and a Tan shade (still no dark…) the fair is super DUPER fair so if you have a hard time finding a match this one might do the trick for you.  They have anew shade called Medium-Tan (which is probably more up my alley) but the Tan one works on my skin (I’m NC-43/NC-44).
