  • "i'm really surprised this was discontinued. it was great for a primer for keeping make up in place but i don't think it did much for blurring pores. in fact when my skin got oily after a few hours the pores were more noticeable. i think they should have continued the product as a regular primer and removed the poreless from the description and it would have still been okay in my opinion. " in 81 reviews
  • "i love tarte for its organic properties, so far this primer has been satisfactory. when i apply it alone it provides a nice layer that hides pores and small scars. when worn with makeup it gives you a smooth finish. my only complaint is if you have oily skin it doesn't last long." in 14 reviews

One of the best matte primers out there. I used this for years before I decided to branch out and try other primers (not because I didn't like it) but to switch up my makeup routine and try other brand's primers to compare. I wouldn't necessarily say this is super long wearing but I think that depends on the foundation it is paired with. For example, with my Bare Minerals Original Loose Mineral Foundation, this primer and foundation combined is not a long wearing combo for me. But with a liquid foundation, I found my makeup stayed smooth all day with out much breakdown As an oily skinned person, I think this product held up nicely with most liquid foundations throughout the day, but I found with mineral and pressed powders, this combo did not pair well at all. I'd still recommend and repurchase this in the near future as my skin never had a reaction to Tarte. Also, this primer will last you a VERY long time. Mine would last at least 1 year before having to repurchase.

With my oily skin this did not keep my makeup on for 12 hours, but it does create a smooth canvas for my foundation to go over. It also blurs my pores and texture without over drying the skin or feeling heavy. Overall it does what it says except it doesn't last as long as it claims on me.

One of my favorite pore filling primers. It feels very smoothing and has a white color that blends away into the skin and does a great job minimizing pores. My only complaint is that sometimes it pills up under makeup or doesn't quite sit right if you have any texture on your skin.

I tried this primer and I wasn't a 100% a fan of it. It is thick and didn't go on as smoothly as I'd like. My makeup went over it ok and looked good for most of the day. My skin is neither oily or dry but for me didn't look great.

This is one of my favorite primers! It really helps me cancel out my very large pores and provides a smooth base for my makeup. It is truly one of the best primers out there! It makes my face feel soft and not textured at all which really helps my makeup go on nice and smooth.

I’ve used this for a while and it definitely seems to blur my pores. Since it is a silicone base, it can feel kind of slippery, but isn’t uncomfortable. It gives a nice natural texture to the skin that’s not too shiny or matte.

I gave this product four stars because while it keeps my make up on for well over 12 hours it doesn't give me that poreless look that I was looking for. It is easy to apply and blend and you can apply your makeup right after putting it on. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good primer that will make you skin feel soft while making you makeup last!

I have combination skin that gets 10x as greasy when I wear foundation, so I always look for poreless/mattifying primers. This primer definitely helps minimize pores, but it isn't super mattifying. I prefer the MakeupForever mattifying primer because that one feels more drying, this one just seems to make my face very slippery. However, it really does minimize pores and makes foundation go on super smooth, so if you have drier skin it would be perfect for you!

I like this primer. The package is pretty, it smells like lemon, and it’s soft on my face. It makes my makeup go on way smoother. It’s a little pricey, but that’s okay!

I'm looking to start using a BB cream, but I have combination/oily skin so I'm looking for a product that isn't too thick. Would this be a good choice?

How well does this work? Does it keep your make up on and keeping it clean? I have very oily skin will this work good?
