I have tried so many primers. None of them did it for me. They usually made the situation worse. My skin is now dry but my pores are still huge. Every time I look in the mirror I see craters on my...

I bought this because of all the hype about it. I don’t have large pores but I’m old so of course have fine lines. The worst part about this product is how thick and immovable it is on the skin....

7/30/18 update: After testing out new primers, I had to come back and give this primer an extra lippie. So far no other primer has been able to blur out some of my pores and keep me decently matte...

I bought this based on Tati's glowing reviews, but I have to say I've been pretty disappointed. I do find that it somewhat blurs out my pores, but it doesn't seem to keep my foundation in place...

I heard so many good things about this product. This is a thick product! A little goes a long way. If you have dry skin, I think this product will do wonders. With my oily skin, it really...

This primer does what it says... It lasts a long time because you only need a small small amount of it to fill pores and fine lines. It can even fill deep smile lines to prevent foundation from...

I was very disappointed in this product. I wanted to love it since Tarte is one of my favorite brands and I heard great things about it. However, it did nothing that it said it would. My pores...

I've used this product for years. They changed the formula I believe last year. It used to be harder to spread for sure but now it is a lot easier and it's the only primer that doesn't break me...
