This product is a great primer for those with combination skin!!! The product can collect a bit in specific areas, so it has to be really rubbed in onto the face. It is not liquid at all, so for those with dry skin it could appear patchy in dry areas of the face. This feels so smooth on the face, and the green and purple sections literally even out skin tone before your eyes! It immediately cancels out redness and dark circles, and once foundation is over it skin looks amazing. If you’re looking for a higher end primer that really has a visible effect on skin tone, this is definitely worth investing in!

I really wanted to like this product. I love most Tarte products, but this one just didn't live up to the hype. The product makeup is great, the colors blend well and definitely help to cover imperfections. Unfortunately, the second time I tried to use the product (which also happened to be on my wedding day...), the stick completely broke in half and fell to the floor. I never dropped my makeup bag, so I am still unclear as to how the stick broke in this manner. The formula gets an A+, but the design/packaging gets an F from me.

I use this in Fair and I love it so much that I always grab a couple extras when they go on sale because I know it’s a standard in my makeup now. The stick swipes on easily and I’ve never had an issue with breakage. The green helps reduce redness while the purple helps to brighten and the flesh tone works as an all over primer. Truly, you could use this on its own or with a dusting of powder if you wanted. A fantastic product all around.

This helps to even out any discoloratiom and hyperpigmentation prior to applying foundation. It's much quicker and easier than spot color correcting. The product blends easily with your fingers. If you have dry skin, I recommend using a facial oil beforehand. Overall, the product does what it claims and I would recommend it for those looking to conceal skin discoloration.

I like that this is a stick and is easy to apply, but it feels a bit heavy and sticky for primer. It's nice that it has some color correcting properties, but it's hard to control where they go on the face. It's able to be blended and used on its own without foundation if you need very sheer coverage, though.

This is a nice CC stick. My face is normally a little dry, and this stick made my face a little bit drier- and stuck to the dry patches. But before applying this, I now use a beauty oil before and it works perfectly. I would recommend to others! Tarte is awesome

Love the color correction and coverage, but not the best consistency for a primer. It’s a little dry because of the clay, so if your skin is dry to normal, it might make makeup look cakey. Otherwise, the color-correcting clay can do wonders for the complexion.

I love this concealer! I use it as my foundation and it provides great coverage. It is very lightweight and feels good on the skin. It has a more matte finish and blends well. It does not clog pores and is easy to remove with makeup remover wipes.

I feel like it did make a difference color correcting, however, it just sat in my face and I could tell it was there. Maybe it's just my skin... it may work beautifully for others. I do like that it is a stick though, makes it super easy to apply.

So I bought this on sale and now I am kind of like how do you use it? Do you use a brush or your fingers to blend it out? Do you wear it alone or under foundation? Help!

What is the coverage like on this? I ordered the 'fair' shade and I'm wondering, is it pretty light? I have found that many times I'll ordered the lightest shade and it's still too dark for me.
