Friday Favorite!

Tarte's BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer with SPF 30 (wew a mouthful!) is a new found favorite of mine. I love the mousse-like texture and the silky feeling on my face. It has build able coverage so it can be worn as more of a BB/tinted moisturizer cream but also doubles as a primer underneath your everyday foundation.

While away on vacation I found myself wearing this by itself with just my Mac Mineralize Natural powder on top to finish. It gave a "my skin but better" finish and I didn't feel like I was wearing any makeup.

Tarte states that it is also a skin treatment (like BB creams usually are or are supposed to be) and I do think it has been helping my skin look clearer. If you have been looking for a BB cream this is definitely a great option.

I don't think it lasts 12 hours but I think it does have some staying power especially underneath foundation or a powder. I can see this being a great product in the winter time as well as summer because the texture is light but also moisturizing.

I'm not sure if someone with oily skin will like this or not because it can feel slippery but those of you with normal/combo to dry skin will love it.

Here is the breakdown from Sephora's website:

What it is:
An innovative BB treatment with multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one eco-chic tube. 

What it does:
- This state-of-the-art BB cream offers numerous benefits for smooth, youthful-looking skin 
- Features SPF 30 sun protection 
- Comes in five shades 

Indulge your skin with this powerful multitasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, antiaging treatment, and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow. Worn alone or as the perfect base for makeup, this 12-hour, age-defying, oil-free primer offers light-to-medium, buildable coverage that helps even skintone and other skin imperfections while diffusing light to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. The creamy, silky formula goes on smooth and blends easily, leaving you with a natural-looking, flawless finish with a broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 30 that offers ideal protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. 

What else you need to know:
Beauty Balms or BB Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skincare ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skintone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skincare benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.

This product is powered by tripleB complex, a proprietary blend of natural diamond dust, plants, and lipoamino acids that diffuses light and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while improving the appearance of skin luminosity. 

Research results:
In a consumer panel study:
- 100% of women immediately saw an improvement in the surface texture of skin for smoother makeup application 
- 97% of women saw and felt smoother, softer skin 
- 91% of women said fine lines appeared minimized 
- 94% of women said pores appeared less visible after 4 weeks
