Beauty Find - Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer


You're probably familiar with the CC (color corrector) Cream trend right now, but leave it to one of my favorite brand innovators - tarte Cosmetics, to create a whole new category around it for flawless skin in an instant!
Tarte Colored Clay CC Primer  is a great primer for evening out blotchy or sallow skin (especially in the colder Winter months).  While I was slightly skeptical about the pink and green strips within this colored CC stick, I was pleasantly surprised by the results.
The green serves to adjust any redness in the skin and the lavender adjusts the darker/yellow undertones.  Although I don't have very uneven skin, I did notice how great this coverage was, and the fresh, natural.  I used the Deep  tone, which is the darkest in the line, with very good results. 
After applying and smoothing the product on my skin, I had a semi-matte finish that didn't look or feel overly dry. It was very lightweight so I didn't mind layering over it.  I used this under either a light foundation or a BB Cream for a completely polished look for daytime.  As a matter of fact, when I started with the CC primer, I didn't have to use much of either foundation/BB Cream to complete the coverage.  This also did a great job of controlling oil in my T zone during the day. I only had to blot about 1x, with much less oil, as a result.
The stick packaging makes it a breeze to pack in a makeup bag or throw in a overnight night bag too.
This is a great new way to start your makeup  - and keep your skin looking fresh all day! - RLB
