Overall opinion of the product: This product seriously blew my mind away. I received a deluxe size of this primer in a Tarte Primer Trio that I purchased around December 2012 and never got around to using it. However, now it’s summer time and my skin is OILY. Somebody on a Facebook group called Makeup Heaven suggested that I try the Tarte Primer in the purple tube, so I did. And boy, do I regret not using this primer when I first got it. It’s amazing! My skin went from needing to be powdered 3-4 times a day to only needing to be powdered once. I was matte for a good 4-5 hours before needing to touch up. On top of that, my makeup stayed flawless for the majority of the day and my pores looked smaller as well.
I highly recommend this primer for anybody with oily skin. I think it’s worth it even at the full retail price.
It’s your typical clear gel primer that feels super soft on the skin. It blends easily and very little is needed to cover the entire face.
