Company’s Description

An innovative B.B. treatment with multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one eco-chic tube. Indulge your skin with this powerful multitasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, antiaging treatment, and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow. Worn alone or as the perfect base for makeup, this 12-hour, age-defying, oil-free primer 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.

Tarte’s BB cream is said to work as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-ager, and sunscreen, all in one product. This product comes in four (4) different shades. My shade and the one depicted, below, is Light.

Packaging: 9.75/10

This BB cream comes in an opaque, plastic squeeze tube with a wooden, twist-off cap. The packaging keeps the product inside sanitary and protected from sun exposure.

Quality: 9.25/10

This product has a consistency in between a liquid and cream. It’s not runny like a liquid foundation but isn’t thick like a cream either.

For a BB cream, this product gives you a good amount of coverage. You’ll get light to medium coverage depending on how much product you apply. The finish is very natural–neither oily nor matte. It sinks into the skin, evening out the complexion without looking like you have something covering the face.

Although this product won’t help keep your skin matte through the day, it does keep its natural finish (without oiliness) for a good four (4) hours. After that, you’ll probably need to blot your skin as you otherwise would, depending on your skin type. If you have dry skin, this product will help moisturize it.

With Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, this Tinted Treatment gives you effective, broad-spectrum sun protection. But, unlike with many sunscreens, this product doesn’t feel tacky or leave a sheen on the skin. It feels more like a face moisturizer.

While the sun protection will help keep your skin from aging, there aren’t any additional ingredients in this product that will have any anti-aging benefits, as Tarte claims.

Ease of Use: 10/10

A tinted face product couldn’t be easier to use. The thin, moisturizer-like consistency of this product means you can simply blend it in with your fingers and be done.

Price: 8.8/10

For $34.00 you get 1 ounce of product. Compared to the other BB creams sold at Sephora, this is a pretty average amount of product and price-point. It’s maybe very slightly on the less-product-for-the-price side.
