LOVE THIS product. My skin looks so much more even, no hormonal discoloration as this helps cover and cure that. I have "hormonal acne" and all these "non comedogenic" products would cause more acne that Tarte make-up lines. This is because there products are pure, organic and ALWAYS FREE OF parabens • mineral oil • phthalates • triclosan • sodium lauryl sulfate • gluten.

Mostly mediocre. I use mine, and it's nice. But it's nothing spectacular. I've tried much better face products from tarte. Additionally, the fair color is surprisingly dark.

This products runs very dark and very orangey. But the main issue I had is that this product doesn't seem to extend the wear of my foundation, or smooth the application of my foundation. As a primer, it just doesn't do much for me.

I have a really big problem with my red cheeks, and this primer has solved everything! I put on a little of this everyday, and it looks so natural on my skin without drying out or clumping up in problem areas. I usually finish it with a powder foundation for a more complete look, but I have gone out with just the primer and it lasted throughout the entire day! I would highly recommend this product!

Very nice primer. I Am between a medium and light tan so I got the light, however due to summer and being out so much I wish I got a medium. Medium for summer, and ligt for winter. Anyway, you can just wear this if you don't want heavy makeup. You can definitely layer it for more coverage. The texture is extremely smooth! A bit pricey though.

First this is like AIR! I see all 3 colors come off on the skin. This is holding my makeup on perfect and removing redness!

I LOVE LOVE this!!! I don't really like foundation, but needed something to even out the redness on my face. This does the trick!!! I then wear the Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation.

I've really enjoyed using this. It blends easily and evens out my skin tones.
I use this with the airbrush finish brush, and really like the pairing.

Love this! So easy and it makes my skin so soft! My only complaint is that I am right in between two shades.

Ok, I'm not sure why negative reviews even exist on this AMAZING product. I'm a newbie to Tarte & I must say after trying this product, you now officially have a convert from BareMinerals. I've been a die hard BareMinerals enthusiast for over 13 years & have most all of their products (pretty much as long as I've been wearing makeup, I'm 32 now). I noticed a change in my skin after having my daughter, plus my age! After going to the dermatologist, I decided to try Tarte... this brand has exceeded my expectations.

The color payoff is magical. It glides onto & into my skin like pure silk. Can't even tell where the primer ends & my skin begins. I'm Korean & had no issues finding my shade (light). It handles the beginning stages of rosacea I've got & I can wear it alone under some setting powder!! I'm happy to say I'm never going back to my old brand & can't wait to get my hands on everything TARTE!!! & I've even gotten my 59 year old Mom to switch from Estee Lauder! Try everything you won't be disappointed!
