Although it's my own fault, Ivory is not a good match for me. It's far too yellow (I am pale and a cool-neutral, about NW15 in MAC), but I will avoid rating this for my mistake in color choice. Fortunately, the color is forgiving as the product is so sheer. I wouldn't suggest this if you want buildable or at least semi-sheer coverage (which I do).I don't find it either moisturizing or drying, and I have had no skin flareups with regular use of this tinted moisturizer. Overall, it's OK for a soft-focus effect, but it's nothing amazing. I personally won't be repurchasing this (even if they expanded shades).

Read the reviews here on makeupalley and I thought this would be my HG. It's cruelty free, has SPF, and the color (light-medium) matched me perfectly. I only used this about 5 times before I realized this was the reason why I was breaking out (normally my skin is clear). Also, most of the time I wore it my skin would peel for some reason and it would oxidize like crazy. I just wish I could get my $36 back, this stuff isn't cheap.

First, I am a huge fan of the BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen. Naturally, I felt I also needed this BB Tinted Moisturizer in my collection! But it's not great at all. It oxidizes terribly and has a sort of watery texture. Even with powder, I felt my face looked wet with this stuff. What I love about the BB Tinted Treatment is that it doesn't settle into fine liens and pores-it does a great job at hiding them. However with this product, I felt pores and lines were emphasized. The color ended up looking unnatural for me, however I am quite fair. The whole Smooth Operator line is not anything special TBH. I anticipate Tarte stepping up their game and introducing a new BB line sometime soon!

my favorite TM (Ive tried Laura Mercier and the Balm), when i dont feel like putting on foundation or its a day i dont need that much coverage i just pick this up and blend it into my face using my hands and it blends so nicely and it has such a nice, natural and dewy finish and for a TM it has a really good color payoff which can definitely be built upon. the only problem I can see (not for me but for others) is that the color selection is limited but i would give this TM a chance and get a sample just to try it because it is really amazing.

I had the original Smooth Operator TM, before it was named a "BB cream." Therefore this review is based on that. I wanted to like this. Gave decent coverage for a TM but it made my face itchy.

I've had this product for about a month, and to be honest, I'm still fairly undecided about whether I like it or not. Pros: - it's long lasting. I can put this on for 10 hours a day and it will not budge, not even in the hot Thai heat. - it doesn't transfer as easily as NARS's tinted moisturizer. - it's lightweight. I often forget I have it on. - No breakouts - It's moisturizing, but not greasy. It might be a little too dry in the winter. Cons: - the light-medium shade is a little too pink for my NC-25 skin tone. - sometimes, it oxidizes terribly!!! So I have to put extra concealer on, which isn't all that great because the concealer gives me blackheads. - it accentuates my pores! oh no! - when I first put it on, it kinda stung my face a little. I hoped it would go away, but it hasn't. Normally I'd throw something like that out, but...- it's so pricey I can't see myself throwing it away. So, if you have pink-based skin without large pores and you live in a hot area, this is perfect for you. But it's not as perfect for someone like me (combination-dry, warm toned skin with redness around the cheeks). The search for an HG Tinted moisturizer/BB cream goes on....

I have oily, acne prone, sensitive, horrible skin and I have tried so many tinted moisturizers and BB creams it is not even funny. I wanted to try this for the longest time but just never wanted to dish out the money on yet another high end product that would break me out. I started using The Balm shelter's beauty balm and liked it other than it oxidizing and being somewhat like a foundation, but it didn't break me out so I figured it was the best I was going to get, until I finally bought this! I love this stuff! It is buildable and absorbs quickly with just the right amount of coverage, and at the end of the day my skin doesn't feel like I have suffocated it. I also really like that it doesn't smell gross like some other tinted moisturizers I have tried. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with oily acne prone skin that is looking for a tinted moisturizer.

Love this ! My second tube of this product. I have really sensitive oily skin which makes finding BB cream/tinted moisturiser difficult. Before using this, I was using the Balm Balmshelter tinted moisturiser, but it oxides and make my skin real orangey. So I thought I would give this a try, since is oil and paraben free. Never regret at all, it gives really natural light-medium coverage and coverage is actually build able. This does not cause my sensitive skin to break out and my face only becomes oily at night after having this on for 8hrs. Definitely good for everyday use, as it only has spf 20, I like to mix this with Korres Yoghurt sunscreen to provide better sun protection for my skin (Live in a very sunny and humid area)

So i got a sample from this from Sephora (and it lasts such a long time, a little goes a long way!) and i got the shade light-medium. When i sampled it in the store it matched my skin tone PERFECTLY which was great because I have yellow-undertones and its pretty hard to find bb creams or foundations that match. Unfortunately, it oxidized terribly and became 3 shades darker. I would give this 1 star but i feel like this color would suit me in the summer when I get tanner. I mean the color isn't completely orange but it does have a slight orange color but i think you wont notice if it matched your skin-tone. The finish is like a satin finish but more on the matte side and looks really natural, but i used it with a primer because without one it accentuated the large pores on my cheeks. Overall, this is okay but i havent really tried that many BB creams so there aren't too many to compare it too lol I'm going to try the other BB cream Tarte has

Highly recommend, I love this tinted moisturizer because it makes my skin look amazing and like I had a great night's sleep even if I didn't :) pros: -super lightweight, I don't like to wear anything heavier than tinted moisturizer so this is perfect for me-moisturizing, makes my skin look almost luminous/well rested-mineral spf is a bonus-non irritating as is everything I've ever gotten from tarte-cruelty freecons: -it is pricey but you only need a little bit so I'll continue to purchase it. -since I use it so sparingly I wish it came in a pump packaging-I wish it came in more colorsI've been using this product for years and even though my face has become really sensitive lately I'm still able to use this. It also mixes well so if you want to go even lighter coverage mix a few drops with your face SPF moisturizer. It's a great way to balance out the slight white cast you can get from some mineral SPF lotions.
