    Goes on easy, not sticky or smelly, easy to blend. If you have oily or combination skin, would recommend setting with translucent powder to really help the poreless effect.

        Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

        This is a good primer. It does mattify my skin. It does minimize my pores. My makeup sticks well to it. But I'm acne prone and I can only use this daily if I'm really upping my skin care routine. But I keep it in my makeup bag for hot days when I really need my oily skin to shine a little less and my makeup to stay on my face on sweaty days.

          Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

          I have oily, sensitive skin with slight acne scars and I wanted to try a different primer. Cruelty free products are important to me and Tarte has all cruelty free products. This primer is so smooth and covers everything nicely. I can't say that it makes my makeup last 12 hours but it does help with the longevity of it overall. Tarte has become one of my favorite brands and I have loved everything I have tried from them. This was actually recommended to me since I mentioned I had oily skin. I originally had the Too Faced Hangover primer but the sales woman said that's not a good one for oily skin. I'm glad I took her advice and went with this one! Really great primer and you don't need a lot so it should last me a while.

            The product is wonderful. Will make you stay matte all day, but it will make you break out if you have acne prone skin.

              Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

              I received this as a free gift for purchasing some other Tarte products, and OH MY GOODNESS! It's amazing. I was skeptical at first because I have acne-prone/sensitive skin, but after I used hydrating lotion (letting that dry) I applied the primer and instantly it took a Matte effect, first noticed it on my nose! I was so amazed to be honest. Never seen something immediately become matte upon application besides lipstick -- and it doesn't flake or break me out or irritate the skin. I've been using it for about 6 weeks and I'm impressed. I normally apply it to my T-zone. Makes my skin so soft and foundation application is even easier.

                      I typically have an oily t-zone and I've noticed that if I use a little setting powder under my eyes, my pore jump out. Will this help with mainly the oiliness and hopefully stop my pores from looking like this?

                        Yes, we suggest using a mattifying primer for oily skin and this primer also minimizes the look of pores.
