I have oily, sensitive skin with slight acne scars and I wanted to try a different primer. Cruelty free products are important to me and Tarte has all cruelty free products. This primer is so smooth and covers everything nicely. I can't say that it makes my makeup last 12 hours but it does help with the longevity of it overall. Tarte has become one of my favorite brands and I have loved everything I have tried from them. This was actually recommended to me since I mentioned I had oily skin. I originally had the Too Faced Hangover primer but the sales woman said that's not a good one for oily skin. I'm glad I took her advice and went with this one! Really great primer and you don't need a lot so it should last me a while.
I was so excited when I ordered this because I thought it would work great with the Amazonian Clay foundation, which I have been using. I hadn't been wearing a primer and I was still getting shine through on my nose after only wearing the foundation for about 4 hours. I thought this primer would help control my oil. Sadly, it did not. It made my foundation drag on my face in my cheek and forehead areas and my foundation would not even stay on my nose. It just bubbled off. About 2 hours after I applied it, I was so oily. I have tried many primers and had hoped this would work. So sad that it didn't.

I can't typically wear foundation (even with primer). This one allows me to use liquid foundation without problems since it conceals all of my pores.

I never spend more than $12 for a primer, but I might repurchase this full price (If I had to!). This is one of those rare primers that is truly dry-skin friendly, but also keeps your makeup on longer. I have slept in my makeup (Bite me, judgers!) and it still looks great! Only slight downside: You may feel like you're using more foundation because this seems to suck it up as you are applying. I have a feeling that is how it works so well though. It absorbs the foundation into the primer and holds it there. For days! Great primer--and I don't think I have ever said those two words together!

I work in the hot florida sun and humidity. This works much better than the mac products or lancome I was using.

Love this primer. Makes my skin soft and makeup looks amazing when I use this. I'm not crazy about the smell but it's still a great product!

It's all right. It compares to many other brands.

I have acne scars from when I was young. Poreless helps smooth my skin before I apply makeup. I love it!

I was a huge fan of the smash box matte primer before they changed the formula. I decided to try this one and it did nothing for my skin. It definitely is not matte. I did not have any bad reaction to it and my makeup went on well over it. It just literally did nothing to smooth or matte my skin.
Tina from Owensboro KY
I was Leary of buying full size but took a chance and glad I did. I really love it! Does great at minimizing pores and skin feels really soft.
Cigi from PA
I've been using this product for a few years now. I don't wear foundation or a tinted moisturizer and it looks great on bare skin.
Yess from Austin
It is very softly and the make up fit better

It's my 3rd time using this primer over my daily moisturizer and before apply Tarte tinted facial covering.
Maddi from Lansing MI
My makeup has skin hasn't had any break out with this like other primers and it doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all. Love this product. Will definitely purchase again. I've been using it for over a month with the same great results each time!
Chrystal from Washington
I apply this product before putting on my foundation, mostly on my T-zone, as it gets a little oily throughout the day. I'm in my 40's and this hides fine lines and helps cover larger pores. It's weightless and gives me a beautiful finish.

Theis product was very light on the skin and left it very soft and smooth after. My make up defintely looked flawless! Everyone need this primer in their make up collection ❤️😍
Daisy99 from Wisconsin
I've tried many different brands of primer and this by far is my favorite. I have dry skin and this does not clump up or make my foundation ball up like other primers have. I love how you only need to use a small amount because it goes along way. Makes my skin feel silky and makes applying makeup smooth and effortless.

Final product applied.

Love the smoothing effects. It doesn't take a lot and my make up last all shift. Feels light & doesn't clog up my skin. Thisnis my #1 primer!
Natasha from USA
I really like this primer, and I rarely hear anyone talk about it. This is probably the best blurring primer I've tried so far — it might be tied with the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. The texture is silky and also reminds me of the one by Hourglass. I like this texture because it feels like my foundation goes on much more smoothly.

I Used the product by its self without putting makeup on after. I like how it makes my skin feel and look. I would rather put this on my face than lotion.

I appreciate the benefits of this primer, but only use it every once in a while due to the breakouts that ensue on my face after wearing it. It's long lasting matte finish is wonderful but the benefits don't outweigh the negative (breakouts). I have fair skin, acne prone and am 39 years old.
Meg from Green Bay, WI
Love this product (and Ulta!) I accidentally purchased the hydrating primer (which made me look greasy thanks is to my skin), and they allowed me to return the opened product! I purchased the Poreless Mattifying Primer, and I love it so much more!

Feels very silky on the skin. Creates a smooth foundation.
