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

    Typically I apply the primer after I've used a good moisturizer. Squirting just a little primer on my ring finger, I blot a little on the forehead then cheeks and chin. Proceeding to rub it in across the face, it leaves a silky finish (reminds me of how smashbox photofinish primers apply. Overall, I'm a very satisfied customer. Usually a MAC girl, but was always ending the day with incredibly oily skin. Started using this poreless primer, followed by a matte powder, and I'm definitely seeing the results at the end of the day. I am not a fan of the price just because the bottle is pretty small. I would say another con is that it feels like the tube is filled with a little more air than I would suspect. Overall, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try something new.

        I use this over a moisturizer and an acne prevention product. It goes on very smoothly. On a good day, I could wear this without additional foundation.

              Ive never used a primer before and always thought it was a hype and not needed until I bought this! It literally leaves my face flawless and makes it last so much longer! On my cheek my foundation and bronzer never stays on a scar.. like an inch long line and when I use this it covers and don't come off!

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

                I apply this primer right after washing my face and putting on moisturizer, and right before applying foundation. It works very well and is the only primer I've found so far that works well on sensitive, acne-prone skin while ALSO being an effective primer. I've used other products made for sensitive, acne-prone skin and although they would not cause breakouts or irritations, they wouldn't work well at all for keeping foundation on or smoothing it out. This primer does both pretty well. The only time I noticed it would break me out is if I use it for long periods of time throughout the day and forget to wash it off at night. Just remember to use a good cleanser and toner to completely get it out of your pores/face.

                      I really don't see what's great about this product. I ought it because of all the great reviews. It works just as well as any other primer I've used. That includes drug store brand and high end. I don't plan on buying this again. The search continues for a great primer!

However, if you have super sensitive skin, a condition such as rosacea, or an allergy, we always advise to first consult your physician prior to use.
