Facts about my skin:
Skin tone: Olive tone
Skin type: Oily and acne prone
Problems: Occasional breakouts on the chin and cheeks, acne scars, large pores in the t-zone, an oily t-zone, and the odd wrinkle - well that's a depressing list.
The product: Tarte BB tinted treatment primer ($44 CDN)
The product has SPF 30, and Tarte offers a wide range of colors (7 in total) - and has some pretty high claims: "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."
- offers great buildable coverage
- has long-lasting even only oily skin
- leaves the skin looking even
- helps minimize pores
I think the pictures speak for themselves - have a look below - from the first layer, all the way to two layers after 7 hours wear (with no setting powder). Sure I'm oily after 7 hours (excuse the oil slick right on the cheek) but usually the makeup has melted right off my face - and although I am very shiny - this stuff has barely budged! I had similar results after wearing the product for 10-12 hours as well.
Summer awaits (or so I'm told - we had snow this weekend!) - and I'm ready with this BB cream!
