Hi everyone!

I was a bit leery on purchasing this product because in the past other primers broke me out severely or I had an allergic reaction to them (who would have thought hypoallergenic makeup would do that!) but so far so good with this primer! I've been using it for 2 weeks now and my skin has never been this good while using a primer. Thank you Tarte!

My observation of this product:
Odorless, silky application, softens the look of my acne scars, skin looks and feels healthier.

Love this product. Goes on smooth and is very light and heavy and sticky like other primers I have uses in the past. I even wear it alone when I want a more smooth clean look.

I wanted to switch to a more natural alternative to my Elizabeth Arden Good Morning Skin Serum, which I have used religiously since 2001! I do like a silicon based primer though, so this ticks the box. So far, so good. It has a nice smooth texture. I put it on before my moisturizer (I know it's supposed to go on afterwards, but I like to "seal in" the moisture from my toner and create a smooth base for my SPF moisturizer). Can't tell if it gives my make up more staying power, but I feel good using it :)

This is a perfect base for my foundation. It diminishes the look of my pores and goes on very smoothly.

I was really nervous with this purchase because of it's silicone base. HOWEVER, as long as you wash your face thoroughly with a good cleanser you should be fine. I have moderate acne and this hasn't made my skin any worse so that is a super plus! It's very nice, glides on and you don't need much to get the job done. I basically cover my T zone except it's more like an I. Only where I have creasing occur. I do think it really improves how smoothly my makeup goes on and since Tarte products go on rather thick this primer is really an essential.

This primer is excellent, it goes on clear, but you can see it fills in the pores and creates a nice smooth surface so that your foundation goes on and stays. Will for sure be purchasing this again.

I instantly fell in love with this primer! It did everything it claimed it would do. It filled in the larger pores I have on my chin and around my nose area. And surprisingly it helped lock in moisture. I live on the coast of maine so winter's here make my skin dry and tight. So it was definitely a plus :) And it makes my tarte clay foundation last all day!

While this does conceal pores and works well for extending the wear of foundation, I am not a huge fan of silicone-based primers, and thus cannot get past the slick texture. However, if you love silicone primers, than you might really enjoy this primer!
