I love this product. I use it in the mornings, then throw it in my bag for mid-day touch ups. I should really just get another for my purse.

I absolutely love this product! I got it in the color Fair and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I love the smooth, creamy velvety texture. It blends beautifully and really lasts. My skin tends to be quite oily and since I live in a hot humid climate I wasn't expecting this to hold up but it really does. I use this as my foundation with a light dusting of powder over my t-zone. It covers what I want it to cover while still allowing my natural skin tone to peek through. If you have a lot of breakouts then this will probably not be enough coverage. I have some red blotches and enlarged pores and this is plenty enough coverage for my taste.

I'm 56 yrs old and I've used Sooo many different foundations. I will never be without this primer. I've been using it for about 2 years. I've used it alone and under my makeup. It simply does not settle into those well deserved fine lines . This is my first review for makeup ever. You must give it a try,I was pleasantly surprised. It does what they say it does. A novel approach .lol

I am 45 years old and this does not settle into any fine lines that I have. It goes on very smooth and is extremely easy to use. On days that I want super light coverage with a touch of color I'll just use it only and on days I want more coverage, I'll use it underneath Tarte foundation. I ordered the color light and it is the perfect color for my skin tone. (I use the color light in other Tarte foundations)

I got this in a gift set and was a little hesitant because I have never used a primer before. Tried it and loved it! So smooth and blends like silk! I really like that the green and yellow ribbons help color correct and honestly I have worn it alone without foundation. I am so glad I found this primer and even told others about it as well. It is a staple.

Love this stuff, can either use it under the foundation or just by itself. I have it in light and the color is perfect match for my coloration of skin. Will definitely buy again!!

Love this stuff! I have acne scars, dull skin, and dark circles under my eyes and this primer helps take care of all of it! I make sure to use the green side under my eyes but then draw warrior marks with the whole surface all over my face then blend. I wear this under my foundation, but could wear this alone if I wanted less coverage. I also find that I don't need to use as much foundation when I use this product. I'm on my second stick and will continue using this as a must-have in my make up routine.

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It keeps my skin both matte and hydrated throughout the day. I finish it with the powder foundation. Great product!

This is a clever achievement! It is a multitasker. Not only does it serve as a nice base but has enough coverage for those no makeup makeup days. I enjoy this product.

I love this product, I was a bit concerned whether or not it would work as a primer since I am not used to a formulation in stick form. So glad I tried it because it is so easy and fast to use that on a minimal makeup day this is all I need. I got the light shade, it is creamy and blends easy (blending was my concern with the stick form. Highly recommend you give this a try.

Ok, this product is GREAT! I watched reviews and looked for a good primer/concealer. I have oily skin and use the Tarte amazonian clay foundation as well. Both products are amazing and make my skin look great, not just that but I've noticed my skin clearing up as well. Using products with chemicals and junk is so bad for you're skin, but I can see and feel a difference with Tarte. Probably my favorite make up brand so far. I appreciate the vegan and cruelty free products! Feels like silk and doesn't feel heavy or cake, especially under my eyes. BRAVO Tarte! xoxo
