I love this stuff because it is mattifying over my sunscreen, lasts all day, has a light coverage that can be built up (you only need a pea size amount for a layer, this should last a long time), and as a primer it doesn't sink into my pores and make them huge...The only issue I've is that I actually wish it didn't have SPF, because some people might think of this is an actual sunscreen worthy product, then either they are applying a tiny amount and not actually getting sun protection, or they are putting too much on and looking bad (and still probably not wearing enough to get sun protection) because putting too much of this will give you cake face

Not heavy at all...A great BB cream...It provides great moisture for the rest of my makeup application, and enough coverage to cover up a few years of intense acne scars...for a long time I just put up with uneven skin tone and never really liked using foundation, but this is light enough that it doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup...A lot of TMs will be sticky feeling (I've experienced this with Laura Mercier's TM which is a favorite of many) and I know that helps them last a long time but honestly Tarte's TM lasts just as long and goes on so smoothly and perfectly
