This one applies smoothly onto my skin. I have also noticed that my skin is clearing up slightly so im guessing it must be the amazonian clay. I truly love this one despite their expensive price (SGD 55 @ sephora). However it is worth your money.
No fragrance. I apply the body shop all in one face base to set the make up. You can use loose powder too. My blush color stays on after 8 hours when i apply on top of this one. So what is there not to love?? I will definitely purchase this once this runs out.
This product is okay. I have had the same bottle for 5 months. I like I do cause it make my face look smooth with the tarte powder. I only use the tarte moisturizer and tarte powder. On occasion. It breaks me out. So when I run out I wouldn't re purchase
I really like this tinted moisturizer! I have fair, dry skin that reacts to a lot of things. I have had no problem with reactions with this product. I love how smooth my skin feels with it. I usually apply it with a beauty blender and it looks great!
This BB tinted moisturizer is smooth and soft, and easy to match your skin tone. I absolutely love it, and while it is very expensive, is worth the money believe it or not.
I originally bought the BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, an it is so inferior to this BB tinted moisturizer. I returned the primer and was so impressed with the difference. They products essentially do the same job, but this tinted moisturizer is so soft, not oily (I have oily skin), and a dream to use.
Ever since I started getting over my years of teen acne, I decided it was time to switch from a heavy coverage foundation to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. I tested several out and finally settled on this one for several reasons. My old foundation was okay but was a bit drying and gave me a slightly dull face. This tinted moisturizer is so brightening, feels very light going on, has a surprisingly good amount of coverage for being so thin, doesn't break me out, is long lasting, has a great versatile color, and I only have to use the tiniest amount each day. The sample I got from Sephora lasted me a more than a month of everyday use. I still use a day cream under this tinted moisturizer and some concealer for hyperpigmentation spots, but it's the best I've ever tried. And it's also a decent price for a higher end brand, somewhere around $35.
Great coverage, it evens out the overall skin tone, when applied evenly. I find that if you apply it with a flat buffer brush, it applies smoothly, evenly & lightly. When I apply this with a beauty blender, there is less coverage and it looks cakey, but that is not the product's fault, its because whenever you apply liquid makeup with a sponge, that is what happens.
So, overall, this product delivers, it has high coverage, its more on the natural side, although it is not 100% natural, but its better than all the other stuff out there. It also does not have a strong smell, which is a great plus for me because I can't stand any makeup that has a smell.
I think it is more on a foundation side than on moisturizer side, meaning, it doesn't moisturize per say, it actually covers more.
I also like the packaging, you can control the amount that comes out.
As for ACNE prone skin, I feel that if you apply this heavily every day, then you will break out, just as you would if you are using a lot of cover up everyday. However, if you apply this lightly, and by itself, without foundation over it, and REMOVE your makeup before you sleep, then it will not break you out.
-High coverage, like a foundation
-Can't think of any
I bought this after reading all the good reviews. I have this in my travel bag, so I don't use it that often. After 6 months, the product oxidized and changed color, making my face dark and dull. I also noticed that this product is full of little yellow sparkles so this makes my face a little yellow and bronzed. it is not an extraordinary extradinary even when I first bought it and the color was ok. Neutrogena skin enhancer lasted longer, looked better and was loads cheaper.
This stuff is incredible! Unfortunately, after two different 3 day trial attempts, both that commenced with clear skin, this product gave me clogged pores and slight acne in the areas surrounding my nose.
It's seriously tragic, because this is my favorite finish of all time. It's glowy and so beautiful. It's really like skin, only better. I wish Tarte would reformulate this to work with my skin!
For all you girls who don't have sensitive skin, and have relatively blemish-free skin, go for this! It's so, so beautiful.
Let me say first of all that Tarte needs to get its act together re marketing this product! Smooth Operator? Agent 02? Facade? Ivory? BB Cream? Tinted Moisturizer? One can spend considerable time just sorting it out from the company's other offerings (primers, illuminators, full-coverage foundations) and previous editions of the same thing.
That said, once you find the proper shade--and judging from what's available at Sephora Tarte seems to have cut back on its selection of those, though I'm not entirely sure--this is really good stuff, and that's coming from a tinted moisturizer obsessive.
My main reason for trying it was that the sunblock is physical; chemical ones make me break out. But physical sunblocks can often impart a chalky look; that is not the case here. My favorite thing about this product is that it is both sheer and matte--that is a very hard texture to pull off. There are sparkles, but they are very subtle, and the overall look is not one of sheen but control, or smoothness, like the previous name suggests. And also that there are (for now) shades that skew yellow, which I think helps counteract ruddiness in my fair skin. It seems to last all day.
I want to try Agent 06, aka Light aka Veil next--if I can find it, that is. ;)
Love it!! I would say it's fairly light coverage, maybe medium if you build it a little. I use my real techniques expert face brush to buff this stuff in, add a little concealer, set the concealer and my t-zone with a powder and I'm good to go! I was using the regular tinted moisturizer from tarte and I still have a very little bit in the tube but I wanted to grab this before I ran out completely and it's great. Just the fact that I was willing to purchase this with my hard earned money on a random day says a lot about it because makeup is not something I would normally go out and drop $36 on (not for one item anyway haha I got the original tm for x-mas).
