Beauty Product Review

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would love to introduce you to my absolute new favorite beauty item.

I present to you, Tarte BB Tinted Cream:



What is a BB cream? According to Wikipedia, BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.

I was looking for a BB cream for a while, and I did a lot of research, looking at drugstore brands vs higher end brands. I stumbled upon Tarte’s BB cream, and it seemed to get really great reviews, so I picked it up at my local Sephora.

Holy crow. Can I just tell you, I have no idea how I lived before this product. I thought that my Makeup Forever foundation gave me fantastic coverage before, but with a layer of this Tarte cream underneath, my skin looks exceptionally flawless now, and I don’t even have to use any concealer!

I love that you can build as much coverage as you would like. There are some days when I don’t feel like wearing foundation, so I just put on a little more of the BB cream and I am good to go. I also love that this cream has SPF 30 in it. I’m getting older, and I need to start worrying a lot more about my skin care, so this does help a lot.

It says that it contains oil-free moisturizer, but my skin tends to be on the dry side, so I use a layer of moisturizer under this.

I wear the “Light” shade, and it matches my complexion wonderfully. If you are looking for a BB cream, I highly recommend Tarte!

  1. Oooh interesting! I alternate (depending on what coverage I want) between the Maybelline BB cream and the NARS pure radiant tinted moisturizer (both have SPF 30) but maybe I’ll try this one when those are done! Do you just apply this one with your fingers? I used to but I find I get even better coverage with my beautyblender. Anyways, I AM EXCITED!

    1. I only use my hands/fingers when I apply lotion. Everything else I use a blending sponge! I know they sell those foundation brushes but The sponge blends SO much better! I love this cream. A pea size covers my whole face pretty well!
