      I bought this a a primer to go along with the Tarte amazonian clay foundation. It goes on smoothly and looks ok at first but my makeup started melting an hour later. Maybe this is better for people who don't have oily skin.

          Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

          This is so much more than I expected it to be. I thought it was just going to shrink my pores and that's it. I've tried many primers before, including Benefits porefessional and Smashbox photo finish in green for the redness around my T-zone. They both felt so greasy and like they were clogging my pores and did nothing to shrink my pores or hide redness. After using Tarte one time I knew it was going to love it. It kept me shine free, no redness peering through, and 100% NON greasy! I didn't have to wait for it to "sink in" before applying foundation, it has a smooth, beautiful finish after applying. I was recently sick with the cold and blowing my nose constantly and my makeup didn't budge all thanks to this primer! I highly recommend even for sensitive, acne prone skin.

            I mostly wear Tarte foundation, that's why I originally bought this. However, this goes with other foundations. It helps to make your pores look smaller.

            Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

            I tend to only use the product when I am going out for the night.
            It's a bit heavy but really helps to even out my skin. I am thinking of switching over to a powder foundation just to use the product more. When I apply my liquid foundation it tends to mess up the spot I needed a little extra to fill in the holes.

            I love this primer. Got it in the 12 days of gifts kit. I have allergies all year and blow my nose alot, and this keeps my makeup on all day. Way better than the smashbox photo primer I was using, that would fade after a few hours.

              Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

              Great! I have tried a few name brand primers and got a little trial tube of this stuff with a purchase at the Ulta store. I used every last bit of the trial size and loved it! So I bought the regular size and have not been disappointed. I apply the primer to the spots on my face I get oily (center of chin, nose area, and center of forehead) and a tiny bit on my eyelids if I'm feeling fancy, and I find that it helps keep my foundation in place all day. Without it, my makeup would move around and my T-zone would get shiny, but it really seems to minimize both problems. I use it every day and would recommend it to primer-users and anyone who gets tired of their makeup looking less-than-perfect by lunch.

              It's okay

              Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

              I have used this for a couple months and while it does blur the look of my gigantic pores, I cannot stand the smell of this primer. I have continued to use this because of the price, but I will not repurchase it. I'm not sensitive to smells in any way however with this I hold my breath when I put it on. I do not prefer the silicone feel it has either. I would prefer something creamier.
