Tarte BB Tinted Treatment

New to my beauty regime is the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen.

I received a set of samples in one of my older Tarte orders and I've heard so much about them since they took the US beauty scene by storm over the past year I've been dying to try it out.

In case you don't know, a BB cream stands for Beauty Balm. It's a new hybrid beauty product that hydrates and evens out skin tones. Most BB creams cover like a tinted moisturizer and I know some people like to use it as a replacement for a foundation because it's packed with nutrients for the skin and provides light coverage. Now let's focus on the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen.

Tarte's BB cream comes in 4 shades: fair, light, medium, and tan which is great for people who have a hard time finding the perfect coverage. I've actually spent hundreds of dollars on tons of foundations and it was funny that I found one I liked so much in a tiny free sample.

It is very creamy and mousse like with a semi-matte finish. You can wear it alone or use it as a skin primer for foundation. One of the best things I found about it is that it's great for build-able coverage so if you're running out of the house quickly and don't have the time to put on your full face, you can quickly put this on and be on your way. If you are going to build coverage with this BB cream, I suggest building it in thin layers so it doesn't go on looking cakey. For a very light coverage, I suggest putting it on with your finger. If you want to build coverage then I would use a thin brush to achieve medium coverage.

I've been wearing it for about a month now and it's safe to say that it's here to stay!

You can pick it up at TarteCosmetics.com or at Sephora!

So what do you think? Is a BB cream for you?
