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

    I love Tarte and everything it stands for! I've been using Tarte's Clean Slate primer for about a year now and I love it. I pair it with their Amazonian Clay Foundation and have noticed my foundation stays in place all day. The primer feels light, goes on smoothly and feels similar to a moisturizer. After application, my skin always feels soft to the touch. If you're looking for a primer that does the job, is good for your skin, and relatively inexpensive, I highly recommend trying this product.

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

    This is the third poor minimizer I have tried. I like this one the only drawback is it does not really last. I find when I get home at the end of the day it has pretty much gone. It is excellent for sensitive skin, not heavy and vary natural looking.

              I bought this a a primer to go along with the Tarte amazonian clay foundation. It goes on smoothly and looks ok at first but my makeup started melting an hour later. Maybe this is better for people who don't have oily skin.

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

                  This is so much more than I expected it to be. I thought it was just going to shrink my pores and that's it. I've tried many primers before, including Benefits porefessional and Smashbox photo finish in green for the redness around my T-zone. They both felt so greasy and like they were clogging my pores and did nothing to shrink my pores or hide redness. After using Tarte one time I knew it was going to love it. It kept me shine free, no redness peering through, and 100% NON greasy! I didn't have to wait for it to "sink in" before applying foundation, it has a smooth, beautiful finish after applying. I was recently sick with the cold and blowing my nose constantly and my makeup didn't budge all thanks to this primer! I highly recommend even for sensitive, acne prone skin.
