        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. :/

                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.

                      I don't seem to do well with primers but this one seemed different when I tried it in the store. That said, it separated and fell into every crease and fine line about half way through the day. It goes on much thinner than most other primers and has a pearly-iridescent undertone. Looks very nice at first, and could just be reacting with my sunscreen, but I can't give that up just to make a primer work... BOTTOM LINE: I recommend trying this if you are in the market for thin primer as this is lighter than Smashbox, Clinique, Hourglass, and MAC. For me, primers settle and separate around 4 hours, accentuating the lines they are supposed to hide. So, if you can relate to this, skip it; this is no different than the others. If however, you are looking for a lighter primer, this is a very nice product with highlighting qualities and of the aforementioned, I liked it the best.

                      This primer has been my favorite in a long line of primers. It goes on very smooth and is easy to blend. It really does help minimize the look of pores... enough my close friend mentioned how great my skin was looking. The only thing I'd changed in my skin-care regimen was adding this product. I am currently not using this with any other Tarte product aside from the Maracuja oil. I'd like to try adding Tarte foundation to see if this helps keep my makeup on during the day.

                        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.
