Best of the BB Creams? Tarte's BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer

While I'm always game to test and try out almost any pre-foundation primer under the sun (sadly, these enlarged pores won't hide themselves), I haven't been an equally enthusiastic fan of BB creams. Most of the ones I've tried are too lightweight and too thin with not enough coverage to help hide my particular skin woes, or too moisturizing and oily for my shine-prone skin. 

That is, until I discovered Tarte's BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer, thanks to a particularly generous stash of samples that arrived with my last Sephora haul. Part BB cream but with the coverage of a primer – not to mention the added benefit of SPF 30 sunscreen – this handy multitasker hides my pores like nothing else I've ever tried! Ridiculously easy to blend and apply, this is probably the most lightweight BB cream I've tested (and I've tested a lot!) while still delivering serious coverage. 

It's so good, in fact, that I feel I could get away with wearing just this and some mattifying powder for the hotter summer months ahead! The only downside is that it is a little drying, but for gals with oily skin like mine, this can be considered an improvement compared to other moisture-laden BB alternatives! - Alexandra Gambardella
