Looking back, I don't remember the moment when I said "huh, I should use primer" but man, am I glad I did! Seriously, primers are the most amazing invention and every single woman should use one (even if she doesn't wear make up). I mean, primers, well, prime but they can also smooth skin, color correct and hid wrinkles so what's not to love! Clean Slate Poreless 12-hr Perfecting Primer is the latest one from Tarte and after using for just a week it's quickly shot to the top of my list (right there along with the good 'ol classic Smashbox one). I love how smooth my skin feels and how great it works to make my foundation stay all day. This stuff is mattifying (adore) which is especially important if I don't want to call attention to my imperfections. As far as dimishing fine lines and pores, I don't see anything spectacular but it does such a great job of holding my foundation that my skin looks flawless! Retails for $30.00 and they also released a brightening primer - Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hr - which I'm definitely gonna check out when I finish off my Poreless one.
Note: A sample of the above product was sent to me by a PR representative working with Tarte.
