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.

        Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

        Having oily skin with large pores and loving Tarte products, getting this was a no brainier for me. However, I was hugely disappointed in this product. At first glance, it looks just like any primer (reminded me of Smashbox Photo Finish). I applied it liberally, did my makeup.....nothing. I could still see every pore. The next day, I applied it again, then added more via beauty blender. I applied my make up.....nothing.....I could see every pore. I will be returning this product today in hopes of finding a primer that works. Sorry Tarte, I adore your products. This one......not at all.

          It has been hard for me to find primers that reduce the appearance of my pores and help my makeup last longer. I found this product about a month ago and absolutely love it! I will not be switching to another primer any time soon.

            I like it, it covers my pores. But it doesn't really give me a matte finish like its suppose to. With my oily skin it really doesn't do its job.

            Comments about Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer:

            This primer claims to make makeup last 12 hours, and to control shine for oily skin. Also, it claims you can wear it alone as oil control or put it under your eyes for a slick surface... Just no.
            I do have oily skin, so I wore this the morning I got it. My forehead was oily by lunch, and stayed that way until I washed my face after work (or blotting). So, it did not control my oil, and I wouldn't want to wear this alone..Which means I would not pay over $30 for this primer.m :{ I will wear it again to see if results change any. Here's to hoping.

                    I put it on a few minutes before my makeup and I noticed a world of difference! My makeup looked flawless! I had a very hard workout and was constantly wiping sweat off my face and when I got done, my makeup still was perfectly in place! (which is very rare for me)
