The Queen of all BB Creams

I know I've written about BB Creams before and have had different favorites along the way, but this one is different. Tarte BB Tinted 12-Hour Primer is the holy grail of BB creams. I tried it at the beginning of summer and instantly knew I had found THE ONE. It goes on with the silkiness [...]
