Hesitant at first but ...

I have an oily t zone, my makeup tends to gather around the nose, and I'm typically a matte primer girl however this has changed my mind. I'm not into the dewy makeup look either, so I was scared it would make me shiny but it didn't. Even with my oily skin this really helped keep my matte foundation fresh and in place. My foundation didn't slide around and this primer has not caused any breakouts. I'm really quite surprised by this product, it's hydrating but has that slight gripping effect when applied so that feeling lets me know my makeup is good to stay on. I didn't even touch up for the entire day. So if you are oily and are scared to try this, I say give a sample size a shot. I think some people may be pleasantly surprised like myself

Tarte is my "Go-To" company for foundation, concealer, and setting powder. I usually use benefit POREfessional primer, but since I use tarte's other products I figured I would give this a shot, since it was on sale ....... not a good decision! I have sensitive, combination skin, with an oily t-zone. After about an hour of using this primer I looked and felt like a complete greaseball! I looked in the mirror and was shocked that my makeup didn't looks as glowy as it usually does, I had creasing that never knew I had, you could see ever pore, and my highlighter was streaking because of my hair touching it, and it never does that with porefessional. I had to keep touching up my makeup, and when I took it off that night I had a few HUGE pimples (I don't usually breakout). Unfortunately, I had to return this. I'm so thankful that Ulta accepts returns after a product has been sampled if we aren't happy...... one of the main reason I shop here (the point system as well). UNLESS YOU HAVE DRY SKIN THAT NEEDS SOME SERIOUS HYDRATION, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS! Less user

Where has this been these past two years??!!!

My skin has been going through a rough patch the past two years. My normally have dry skin and it gets worse in the winter. I buy very expensive skincare to keep it hydrated. I have tried SO many different types of “hydrating” primers that broke me out or made my makeup look very matte. I finally purchased this and used it underneath face tape foundation and OH, MY, GOD! I worse them for an interview and my sling looked SO GOOD! It looks Plump and glowy. My makeup lasted all day, it felt light on my skin. My face LOVED IT! I got so many compliments on my makeup. PLEASE NEVER DISCONTINUE IT! user

Perfect! My description says it all!

I have tried many primers, only to be disappointed. Either they leave me feeling greasy, or they clog my pores and cause breakouts DEFEATING the purpose! This is by far the only primer I will ever put on my skin again! It's lightly moisturizing, creates a smooth base, and makes my face look fresh ALL DAY! it performs beautifully under both foundation AND Just a tinted moisturizer, it is not thick or greasy at all! If you are looking for a thick silicone primer, this is NOT your jam. But if you want a lightly moisturizing primer that makes your skin look flawless AND makes your skin look beautiful all day, even in the Texas heat this is tie one! Powerhouse without feeling heavy and made up. Not mattifying, but not dewy, glittery or iridescent. Just YOUR SKIN but way better! I'm in my 50s and I'm in the aesthetics field. I see skin all day, and I know a good product when I find it! I do wish it had a touch of SPF so I wouldn't need to add one. Less

I've been using Tarte shape tape and Coty airspun powder for years (no foundation) . I've recently noticed that even with primers, baking and setting spray I get splotchiness and creasing. I also sweat off my makeup very easily! Could it be the powder? I've been curious about switching to Laura Mercier but the price on airspun is fantastic. Any advice?

Sounds like you need to put primer or foundation under your base. Try this one!

Anyone know of a good primer that is great for combo skin? (Oily, Dry). I’ve been using the Fenty matte primer but it doesn’t seem to really stick on my skin, it dries too fast. Preferably a thick primer without a matte finish.... help :( #combinationskin #primer #oilyskin #dry
