    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!

                Best primer I've ever used. Face still feels oily at the end of the day but gives off move of a glow at that point. I buy one every 2-3 months!! Love Tarte!!

                      I have used and liked both products a lot. I have texted skin, and found that tartes worked much better. Helping my skin look a lot smoother. Also, I notice a giant difference in using this primer under my foundation, rather than no primer at all.

                      This product goes on easy it helps make the make up last a long time, but I don't like the fact that after 2 hours of wearing it my face looks beyond greasy. It's a awesome product besides the greasy look I mean you can always use blotting paper to get rid of the oils. Another good thing about it is that it helps moisturize my face, only flaw is that your make up looks greasy.

                      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.

                        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!
