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

        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!

                        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.
