    Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

    I have combination/sensitive skin. I've noticed the majority of people who say this primer didn't work for them describe their skin as oily. I don't really have oily skin but I do break out easily.
    This primer has a nice feel to it but it actually makes my pores more noticeable. I thought it was maybe the foundation or something else I was doing at first. I really wanted to like this primer because it's Tarte and it was expensive. I've had this primer for a few months and have used it on and off to see if it really was the issue.
    For whatever reason, this primer causes me to break out. It also makes my pores appear larger! I'm kind of sad because this was expensive. I'm not sure if I can return it now though because I've had it for a couple months.
    If you have oily, combination, or sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend this primer.

        Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

        A wonderful consultant at Ulta recommended this product to me after the primer I've been using for years was discontinued. My skin is ultra sensitive, and there's nothing more horrifying for me than trying new makeup because the outcome is rarely a good one. THIS PRIMER IS THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST GIFT TO EARTH. I work at a hospital and sweat literally 90% of my shift, and this primer keeps my face on. It goes on so smoothly and allows for a really awesome application of the rest of my makeup. It doesn't get any more matte than this! A little goes a long way, and I've been using the same tube for months (which helps justify the cost.) Do yourself a favor and give this stuff a shot - it's my new favorite product.

            Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

            I has really high hopes for this primer because Tarte's foundation coverage is the bomb dot com. When I put it on at first it looked good but as the day went on it started to become really patchy. I ahem an incredibly oily T zone and I was expecting some kind of oil control. I needed up having to take off my foundation and just rocking my eye and brow make up. It also felt really heavy, especially under my eyes, cheek bone area, and forehead. I'm totally taking it back.

                    I have very oily skin and enlarged Poor's. This primer keeps me matte for atleast the first 4 hours and that's saying a lot. I went a full day with my makeup. I only had to blot maybe 2 times.

                    Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

                    This product is not as good as all the reviews I read online for it said it was. It's not a soft smooth gel primer like I was hoping, unless my skin is just too dry. It just doesn't feel like it goes on as smooth as others I have used in the past, and so I feel like I need to put more on than I should so it spreads across my whole face. I will say tho that it does make my makeup last all day so that's a good positive.
