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
