I have combination skin, it gets oily sometimes and dry sometimes. When I apply this primer it makes my face flakyish and when I apply Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation over top it looks really awful. I realized my foundation looks a whole look better without applying this.

Love this CC stick - the coverage, the finish, and the ease of application. Tarte has confirmed that this product is being discontinued, so stock up while you can!

I love that this product is Vegan and it is definitely suitable for someone with a smooth complexion with minimal need for coverage. It's a very insteresting product and it works well with just using your fingers. It glides on smoothly and blends nicely. For me, it doesn't really suit my skin type/texture. But for someone needing minimal coverage from a primer/make up, this is great! Works the best as a minimal foundation as opposed to a primer. I got the color light (between fair and light) and the color was a perfect match. The green and purple help neutralize undertones and redness.

I live in south Florida - heat and high humidity! I needed a foundation that was light, non-greasy yet lasted and covered well without caking. This product will forever be a staple in my make-up bag - I use this along with a light bronzer and it is more than sufficient coverage that is not heavy or fake looking.

I have nothing bad to say about this primer. It makes my face look really smooth and even, and holds foundation well for hours. It even stops the shine on my face a bit. I'm in love!

I never use a face primer and I'm so glad I started off using this one! It gives me amazing covering results and covers blemishes and discoloration well. This helps my powder or foundation last all day. What I love about this , is that
t I can wear alone and not feel great

I did not like this. I felt lilke it rubbed off very easily onto other my clothes or other things. It just didn't sit on my skin well and did not make my foundation last longer.

I also thought that I might be able to wear this by itself and when I did, it didn't blend well because you could see brush strokes.
I don't wear a lot of makeup on my face which is why I thought it would be nice to wear alone but my face looked much better using the bb cream.or tinted moisturizer.

I was a bit skeptical of this product at first, especially since the tan parts seemed a bit too dark for me, but it goes on smoothly and matches my skin very well. It also has a powdery finish, which I think helps a lot for any makeup appliedd over it. Would definitel re-purchase.

One of my favorite primers as it's one step, with color and works! Definitely can be used by itself but works great under my tarte foundation.

This does help neutralize redness but didn't help my foundation last longer throughout the day.

This is top notch!
For summer, I don't want as much coverage, so I use sunscreen / moisturizer, this CC stick, the contour pencil, a bit of bronzer / blush, and finish with the micro veil. Covers most of my issues (occasional blemish, undereye dark circles) very well AND my freckles show through in a very nice way (I don't want them to disappear, but toning them down is fine).
My face feels extremely soft.
And it is a good primer, if I put on regular foundation. I feel like the foundation lasts longer and I don't get as oily.

Another great tarte product. I can use this as my foundation. Top it off with the Amazonian clay finishing loose powder and I'm set. It's just enough. A kiss of blush and or bronzer, and I'm good to go!

I am in LOVE with this primer. I had never used a primer before applying foundation, but now it is a must. What I love most is that it covers really well so if I am in a hurry I can just put this on and not have to worry about foundation.
