Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer:

I tried this product under liquid and powder foundation. It definitely does brighten your skin, and it does so without looking too shimmery/glittery which is a plus for me because I have VERY oily skin. Also this product is silicone free, another plus for me because I have a sensitivity to silicones. Unfortunately this product did nothing to help my foundation (liquid or powder) stay on any longer, look any better, or smooth my canvas. I felt like I was more oily then without it. This is for dry/normal skinned people.

    Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer:

    Okay, as a tarte die-hard this is hard for me to say but: I could take or leave this primer without much thought. I usually use this under the tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Powder Foundation, it does seem to help adherence, but I seem to end up using at least double what the Ulta rep demo-ed when I bought it. It doesn't spread as smoothly as it seemed to that first day in-store, and if you miss spots you can see the streaks after applying foundation. The feel is nice, like a really satiny lotion. Even before putting foundation on I can notice a pore-reducing and brightening effect, so that claim is dead-on. It's pretty much a 50/50 split for me, I would recommend this product but I would be sure to mention my reservations as well.

        I've tried other primers, and this is by far the best for my oily skin. This does not cause breakouts.

          Goes on easy prior to foundation. Minimizes imperfections and makes my skin glow. I have acne-prone sensitive skin, and needed something more natural and easy on the skin. This is perfect!

            I've used primers for years and have tried many brands and types. Tarte Clean Slate is one of the best I have ever used. Even though it is light in weight and texture, it covers, fills and smooths extraordinarily. It provides a great glow without being shiny. I have used it alone and also with a Tarte foundation and am thrilled with the results. I believe I have found a "forever" product in this primer!

                    It also has a hint of lemon which is very refreshing.

                      The Tarte Poreless Primer (the one in the packaging that is similar to this but purple) is my favorite primer of all time, so I thought I would enjoy this too. To be fair, I'm basing my opinion of this primer on a deluxe sample size, so the full size could very well be different. However, I got about two months worth of use out of the deluxe sample size, so I feel confident saying I know how I feel about this product. The worst part for me was simply the smell. It was a fragrance I can't quite put my finger on, but I hated using this simply because of that. I also felt my makeup didn't last as long with this primer as with the Clean Slate Poreless primer.
