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.

  • 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.

    Good item. Though it's a pore minimizer and I don't have large pores, helps foundation go on smoothly.

    IDEK.

    By Trying to do my Makeup.

    from Tn.

    Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

    I do not understand why this is called poreless and mattifying. I have an oily t-zone and my inner cheek's pores are huge. I did not experience any extended wear out of my foundation and my pores were just as noticeable without any primer. I changed the way I applied the primer: from patting and rubbing into the skin to changing the amount I used. I could not make this work. Save your money.

      Peasize amount goes a long way. This product is HIGHLY effective. I never used primer previously but now I will never go back. Makes my foundation and contour look flawless! I have very acne prone skin and this honestly doesn't aggrivate it at all.

      Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

      it smells like cooking spray or something just didnt like the scent. It isnt real thick which I like it is easy to take off and it does make your skin look smooth and natural looking I do like their other primer better but this is cheaper and it was on sale.

          This product is pretty smooth but I'm not sure it really does anything for my face . I almost feel as if I have nothing on my face . I apply a pea size amount and I don't really think it does anything.

            • Q:

              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.
