    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.

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

    This is the only primer I have used that doesn't make me breakout. I have very sensitive skin. It wasn't the easiest to apply but once I got the hang of it it was amazing. My makeup stayed put all day and my face looked so smooth. It's kind of pricey so I will only be using it when I get done up for the weekend.

        After moisturizer and before foundation, this primer has added benefits and it glides on smoothly and non-greasy. Feels like it's not there.

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

          If you like thicker, clear and silicone - like primers.. This is the best out there. It perfects everything, smoothing out dry patches and controlling oil like no other. Pores are noticeably minimized, unlike other primers that claim to and dont. This product is a gem! My face looks and feels amazing with this on, I'll wear it alone on days I don't wear makeup just to help control oil and improve my skin texture. It also definitely helps makeup last through long summer days in the Florida heat.

                I love this! I put it over my moisturizer sometimes even if i want to go without makeup since it brings a matte finish and hides lines and pits. Under my makeup, it creates a smooth foundation that the makeup glides over. Coupled with the clay foundation and the buffer airbrush finish bamboo brush, it truly does leave a flawless and natural look to the skin.

                  Use this everyday before applying Tarte foundation. This primer does a great job of smoothing my skin and extending the wear of my foundation. Didn't give it a perfect score, because no product is perfect, but this comes pretty darn close.
