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

I've used this product for about 3 years now. And throughout all the other primers i've used this one has to be by far the best for my EXTREMELY oily skin. It's really helps keep my oil under control. If you want something to help with your oily skin or just the longevity of your foundation this product is for you. It is a more thicker primer but blends out beautiful and really sinks into the skin.

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

    Great base layer before applying foundation. Helps foundation last longer and the texture of it is light. I have tried other primers that feel like glue and this is far from a glue feeling. I will definitly continue using this product and will try some of Tarte's other products as well. Already use their mascara and love it!

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

          I bought this after reading the good reviews. I have quite a lot of visible pores on my face and they're quite large on my t-zone area. This primer, which is for pores, isn't too great. It fills them in slightly but you can still see my pores. They don't look like dots, with the primer on, but you can definitely see the textures of the pores. It doesn't fill in the pores well and smooth my skin out. The product is very silicon-y which I'm not a big fan of, especially since I have oily skin, but the biggest problem is still being able to see my pores. :/

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

                  I bought this to try out instead of my benefit porefessional. I must say, I'm going right back after I use this bottle up. It doesn't do anything for me, my makeup comes off so easily and I even set it with powder and a setting spray. let down.
