TARTE 12HR PRIMER & LM TINTED MOISTURISER REVIEW

Hi Beauties, Ive been wearing well I guess test driving a few products today so its review time. Today I am wearing my TARTE Clean Slate Poreless 12hr Perfecting Primer with LAURA MERCIER Tinted Moisturiser on top both from yesterdays Beauty Haul. I applied my make-up around 9am this morning and now at 6pm its still going strong, no dry patches, redness or oiliness (although I did dust my MSF over it in the AM). Here is my honest opinion on these 2 products.


TARTE CLEAN SLATE PORELESS 24 HR PERFECTING PRIMER
When I first applied this primer I was like WTH this is the poops but after working with it a few seconds I totally changed my mind here is why. When you first start rubbing it over your skin it looks like the product is  rolling into clumps/balls on your skin (great right rubbing right off) but it doesn't, you just keep smoothing it out and all the Rollie bits blend in/smooth over beautifully. At this point it blurs pores and leaves a silky matte finish to the skin that has lasted all day so far. Picture #3 I tried to show it all rollie before blending it out fully.


LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURISER 30ML SAND
I have been wanting to try this product and the foundation for eons so seeing the smaller size while waiting in line at Sephora was perfect. So happy I grabbed it, its lovely. It blended in well, wasn't streaky, toned down the redness around my nose and my under eye circles but stayed sheer enough to see my freckles (which I love) and left my skin glowing. Again this has been on my face all day and its working great with my dry skin, no flaky patches:)

MY THOUGHTS:
TARTE - I do like this primer for the reason it really does minimise the size of my pores but I will be trying out the other Brightening Primer from this mini set tomorrow which is a Cream base not a silicon base and I think Im going to like this one better B
LAURA MERCIER - Im pretty sure I will be buying the full size unless I decided go try out the silk creme foundation first..although Im sure either way I'll be buying this product again A

  4. thanks for the reviews- I think I'd pass on the tarte primer, I dislike when they have that texture that makes it feel like parts of your skin are rubbing off- hard to describe but you know what I mean ;)
