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.

      Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

      It is just an okay product. The silicone makes it a little too heavy for someone with break-out prone skin. I didn't find that it did anything to improve my foundation (Tarte Amazonian Clay). There are better primers out there.

          I have an oily chin and 9/10 my foundation (powder, liquid, doesn't matter) will shift and it will look like I've put nothing on it. This primer keeps everything in place all day long. It has a nice silky texture and helps keep my oil at bay. I'm sold!

            I honestly did not like this primer at all!!! I returned within 4 days of buying it. I waited the 4 days to see if I'd come to like it but just didn't it made my makeup feel heavy which is not what I want. I think it's too thick maybe

            I bought this last month during the 21 days of beauty sale, and I hadn't used it until today! well I did a wear test with my tarte Amazonian clay foundation and after 7 hours it still looks fabulous! it didn't keep me completely matte (i don't like a fully matte look anyway so it gave me the look I wanted!), but I also wasn't totally oily. my foundation applied so smooth and hasn't budged at all! this primer is amazing and will definitely be used more often!

              I had a gift card and thought why not splurge a little! I will never use anything else now. I do have to use a little more of this product than other tarte products, but it works really well! My other make up goes on smooth and lasts all day!

              • Q:

                What color is the product - is it white or tinted a color. Trying to assess if it would work under medium colored skin or would it leave a chalky look to it (if it were white). Thanks.
