Your skin's answer to makeup meltdown, this waterproof mattifying & retexturizing face primer features an optical matte-blur technology to filter out imperfections & create a shine-free matte canvas for your foundation to last 12 hours. The silky, invisible gel is ideal for oily or combination skin & helps to erase pores & resurface uneven skin texture from fine lines, dry patches or acne scars. The nutrient-rich formula infuses antioxidant botanical extracts into skin that help neutralize free radicals so you see an immediate skin-boost, even before makeup.

Skinvigorating ingredients:
  • Avocado: Natural oil rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E & known for its skin-soothing properties
  • T5 super fruit complex: Proprietary blend of the five most active antioxidant-rich superfruits (maracuja, goji, açaí, acerola & pomegranate) to deliver nourishing & replenishing benefits to skin
  • Echinacea root, hibiscus flower & rosemary leaf extracts: Rich in antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals & improve skin tone & elasticity, while diffusing imperfections
  • Safflower seed: Emollient with beneficial fatty acids to help hydrate dry skin

Vegan. Waterproof. Tarte 12-hour power. Dermatologist tested.
Prior to foundation, apply a thin layer onto clean, hydrated skin, focusing on the oily T-zone or other pore-prone areas. You can also dab it under the eyes or on the eyelids for a smooth, even surface or wear it alone as a shine control treatment.

    This is like rubbing pure silicone on your face. It did not mattify my skig or minimize my pores. It was so slick it almost felt greasy. Not impressed.

              from Ohio

              Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

              I'm not really sure how to feel about this primer yet or what foundation of mine it may work best with, if any. Gives me sort of weird texture around my nose and doesn't do much for my pores. I'll keep trying, but not sure on this one, sadly.

                I loved how smooth this made my skin, but when I went to apply my powder, the primer clumped up and fell off of my face in small, eraser-shavings-like pieces.

                  I love this stuff. I work in a donut shop for eight and a half hours on a normal day! It claims to make your makeup last for 12 hours and let. Me. Tell. You. I have had to work with grease and icings and I haven't had to blot my makeup all day. Which is unbelievably impressive. It has been the full 12 and my makeup still looks just as good as it did at 5:30 this morning. Get it.

                  Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

                  I was so excited when I ordered this because I thought it would work great with the Amazonian Clay foundation, which I have been using. I hadn't been wearing a primer and I was still getting shine through on my nose after only wearing the foundation for about 4 hours. I thought this primer would help control my oil. Sadly, it did not. It made my foundation drag on my face in my cheek and forehead areas and my foundation would not even stay on my nose. It just bubbled off. About 2 hours after I applied it, I was so oily. I have tried many primers and had hoped this would work. So sad that it didn't.

                    I have dry cheeks and an oily t-zone. Will this work for me? Will it fill in and blur my pores?
