I love, love this primer. I've used The Porefessional by Benefit for years, until I recently came across this primer at my local Ulta store, where they were showcasing their best primers. I heard about Tarte before, but I had no idea their products are free of all the bad ingredients I've read so much about...and now I'm in love. This primer has a gel texture and a small amount works wonders. No smell, which I love. I only use it on my cheeks and my nose...and my large pores disappear. Totally recommend it.

I LOVE this primer. I originally looked for the highlighting primer because that's what Jaclyn Hill recommended but it was sold out. I opted for this one and don't regret buying it at all. I have ZERO pores on my face when I use this product. That's the first thing I noticed. I have oily skin and it keeps my oil down as well. I also use tarte's Smooth Operator mineral finish to top off my whole look and I hardly have any oils on my skin at the end of the day. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.

I like this, but it doesn't seem any better than your average old drugstore primer. Mine also smelled a bit rancid...this is my first tube, so I wasn't sure if that was how it was supposed to smell or if I just got an old one. Just like you would expect, it helps me get smoother makeup application and my makeup tends to last a bit longer than if I didn't use a primer. Probably won't buy it again, but will use up the tube I have.

I've tried a lot of primers out there and this is by far my favorite! Not only does it have an unbelievably smooth texture but it seriously works. Another added perk is that a little goes a long way. You really don't need a lot of it, so it's lasted me four months so far.

As far as primers go, this is a terrific primer. I was not impressed with primers to the point of using this one. When I began to use it, I saw a dramatic difference in the staying power of my makeup, and it really did feel like a clean blank slate on my face. It absorbs well and did not cause any dry patches, redness or itchiness, as I have very sensitive skin. As far as pore refining, I am not sure if I noticed a difference in the sizes of my pores, but it is such a great product in all other regards.

I don't notice much difference in my pores but it does leave my skin feeling really smooth a little bit shiny though. it does a fantastic job with helping my Tarte Amazonian 12-hour foundation last even longer

I have oily skin and this product works good, but it doesnt leave me shine free all day. I am going to try something else to see if it helps my shine get under more control

I have visible pores all over my nose and I have oily skin. With this product my make-up last longer and my pores are a little less visible. I originally bought it for my pores but it really does help my make up stay longer with not too much shine later on in the day. Also, the next morning I don't wake-up with acne from clogged make-up pores.

This is a good primer. It has a silicone texture, and does seem to minimize the appearance of pores.

This is a really great primer! I received it in a sample kit and was very impressed. It has a great feeling, almost like vaseline but not greasy. It applies very smoothly and makes my amazonian clay foundation go on like a dream. I noticed a difference in pore size, but I'm not sure if that's from this, my AC foundation or the maracuja oil. I only gave it four stars because it is a little overpriced, to the point where I feel wasteful if I wear it anytime besides a special occasion. However, I would definitely buy it again.

This is my absolute favorite primer from Tarte. It feels wonderful on my skin and provides a silicone-feeling base for applying foundation. My foundation lasts all day. Highly recommended.

I like this product! The silicon-y consistency just glides right over your pores so easily which is what I liked a lot. The only downside that I found was that sometimes when I apply it on my face, I'd get chunks of primer rolling off my face. I'm not sure if that's normal? I definitely would not recommend this product to people with more oily skin. For me at least, this product didn't last for a full 12 hours, but that's really not that important to me. The finished look after applying my powder looks flawless and very natural.

I use this as a light moisturizer before applying the Amazonian clay foundation in my daily make-up regimen. It helps to smooth the surface of my skin and decreases the amount of powder I use depending on the season. In summer I still need to use some because of humidity, but winter I almost require none because of the combination of this primer and the foundation.

This is my wholey grail of primers. I use to be only smashbox girl for primers, but I had gotten this in deluxe size sample and I love it! I wear it everyday. It fills in fine lines , scars, large pores giving u a flawless canvas to work with. Its n greasy, but does have the nice silicone feel. Some primers I don't like that with but this one I diff do. You can fill it sinks into everything, and then just gives a smooth canvas, instead of your makeup going into all the fine lines, large pores, making. you look older and not flawless. This does its job and more. I have been searching for something to surpass this one and haven't been able to this last month. Even the brown one to this I Dont like because its like too Mich of a moisturizer and not a primer, your makeup stays looking fresh all day and night. Diff give it a try, the deluxe size has lasted me no joke two months. So its diff worth every penny.

I really think this is a great skin primer! I have tried many and this one works great!!! It even makes your skin feel very soft. No smell and doesn't take a extreme amount to spread over the whole face. Would recommend to buy. Thanks Tarte!
