        I haven't really found a primer or makeup line that I really like and the lady at ultra helped me out big time showing me how to use it and what the process was. My pores are viewable in my T zone and this line helps out a ton to shrink them!

                If you have horribly huge pores like me, then this product will definitely help! It won't clog, clump, seperate, or get suddenly dysfunctional on you right before you leave your house . Only problem is~ the tube seems small for the price. It's completely worth it since Tarte doesn't test on defenseless animals or pump a bunch of toxic chemicals into it's products... but this particular product could still have more bang, size wise, for it's buck. I would honestly recommend this product to anyone out there that struggles with their pores, fine lines, or combination skin... but most of all, to those who can never find the perfect "foundation" for flawed skin. Give this a try... it'll change your world, and give you confidence in your complexion!

                    I read about this on a beauty blog so decided to give it a try and like it a great deal. It kind of "blurs" your pores to give them a smaller appearance and the matte finish helps control my oily skin making my makeup last longer ( a plus in Florida humidity). But I was also pleasantly surprised that its helping to improve my skin clarity and tone.

                          This is my go-to product after moisturizing. I use it even if I am not wearing any foundation or concealer that day. I have combination (oily t-zone) skin. This primer always leaves me feeling picture ready without fear of being too shiny.

                              A small amount goes a long way. I have oily skin and love my foundation. The thing is, this primer really vamps the foundation so I have a nice smooth and easily blended appearance. Without it, cracks happen as expected. My pores are medium sized, but larger on my nose. Although, this is the best primer I've used and will undoubtedly continue to use. Game changer for sure!

                                  All Tarte products are formulated for all skin types and formulated without common irritants like parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, and gluten. 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.
