I realize that I just did a beauty favorites post (and still have yet to post my healthy favorites), but I simply could not resist sharing my latest beauty discovery with you.


Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer


(Sephora $34)


This stuff is amazing.  Amazing!

As I mentioned in my last beauty favorites post, I’ve been going lighter on the makeup lately, and I have been using my Origins VitaZing moisturizer nearly every day rather than a foundation.  I really love that product because, even though it is a moisturizer, it offers a tiny bit of coverage.

However, there are some days when a little bit of coverage just doesn’t cut it.

Rather than slathering on heavy foundation on those days, I’ve been applying the Tarte BB primer.  It feels light on the skin, but it covers mostly all of the imperfections (aka breakouts) that I want to hide.


    Minimizes the appearance of pores Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Goes on lightweight and smooth Offers some coverage but doesn’t look mask-like or cakey Contains chemical-free SPF Long-wearing Doesn’t break me out Can be worn alone or under foundation for even more coverage Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrance


In my opinion, there’s only one minor con (aside from the price)…

Although this product claims to be moisturizing, I actually find that it can feel a bit drying, so I still apply my regular moisturizer beforehand.   Just something to consider if you are looking for a BB cream that is very hydrating.


Have you tried any BB creams or BB primers?  If you use any, what are your favorites?

Have a great day!

  1. I am loving the Boscia BB Cream with SPF 27. It looks and feels great on my skin and is lightweight and doesn’t break me out!

  2. I am in the market for a BB creme and have been doing tons of research. I need the light weight feel too, the heavy stuff drives me crazy! This is perfect timing, it’s my birthday month so I have to hit up Sephora anyways. Thank you for the review!

  3. I love this BB Cream. I recently did a BB Cream showdown with like 11 or 12 BB Creams and this one won! It’s the only one I recommend or use on my clients because it actually works! Love it! You have very good taste, but then I knew that once you mentioned you were a NKOTB fan :)

  4. I’ve been using Smashbox Photo Finish forever, but it’s recently started making me break out. I might have to give this a try!

  5. So BB cream takes the place of foundation? I am a beauty novice haha! Happy Anniversary!

  6. I have been using the L’Oreal BB cream and I really like it so far, but have had some breakouts.

    • I’ve heard that the L’Oreal is the best of the drugstore BB creams. I might have to try it sometime! I’m scared of the potential breakouts though.

  7. I use L’Oreal BB cream and no problems with breakouts. I also use a moisturizer with spf first, then the BB cream. I still wear foundation over the cream to work but for weekends I can get away with just moisturizer and the BB cream. Great price point at around $10, but now that I know I like it I may splurge for Tarte!
