I used this with Tarte full coverage foundation and was wondering why it was all flaky looking on my skin. I stopped using the Primer and I haven't had the problem since. Im not a fan of this stuff for my dry combination skin.
The Colored Clay CC primer by Tarte is a pretty decent little primer. It comes in a tube and is a cream - type texture. The stick is divided into four quadrants - a green creme to cover red marks and splotches (let's be honest, we all have them), a purpley - pink section to give skin some color and vibrance, and two foundation sections that act as coverup.
I use this primer all over my face (literally smear it on every square inch) and then buff it out. Depending on your skin's level of issues, you could be fine just wearing the primer as your foundation and not adding anything else on top. I choose however to put a light, liquid foundation on top. The result is flawless looking skin. I am particularly impressed by the products ability to even out my skin tone, especially the red blotchy bits by my nose and old acne marks.
I would definitely recommend the product - it is a little expense (in my opinion) but it certainly accomplishes what it sets out to do, which is even out your skin tone and provide a beautiful base for flawless skin.
