Just recently switched to this primer after using Lancôme for quite some time. I was a bit skeptical because I wasn't certain if anything could replace the 1 minute blur. Well, after the first use, all doubts were cast aside.

This primer is the perfect replacement and far more healthier for my skin! It's a WIN WIN!!

Now, if Tarte will develop a foundation shade for my brown skin that doesn't leave ashy streaks.

I got this product as a sample and I love how smooth it makes my face feel. I was using porefessional by benefit prior because of how smooth it was but this is better. I started a pretty active day around noon and when I looked at my face around 7:30pm.. My face still looked freshly done. I was very surprised. I also you the amazonian clay from tarte too. I do like the product but I am not sure if i will pay $31 for a full bottle..the price is the only reason why I am giving a 4 out of 5

I love this product! My hunt for a multi tasking primer is over. As a young athlete i need something that will keep my makeup long lasting, reduce shine, color correct, and blur pores. It does all of that and more. I hardly had to blot, since I also have normal to oily skin. Also, by the end of the day, pictures were great. Highly recommending this primer!!!

I love this primer. It goes on smoothly, seals in moisture, holds oil at bay - although I do have to blot midday, that's inevitable - and makes make up look smoother longer. I apply over moisturizer and let set 30 sec to 1 minute before applying foundation. I really do get an air brushed affect.

A Little goes a long way. Does not have a gross smell to it, and it works wonderfully.. What more can I say. ALSO FYI. Let the primer settle on your face about 30 seconds or more before applying face makeup...

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 :)

As a makeup artist, I go back to this primer every.single.time. Especially for clients with large pores. I love it.
