Turn back the hands of time with Tarte's timeless smoothing and filling primer formulated to fade out your biggest beauty boundaries such as large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant-rich formula infused with vitamins C & E and green bean extract gently melts into the skin delivering a surge of moisture, peptides and other naturally-derived elixirs for a firmer, smoother appearance. You'll love the lightweight texture and fresh powder scent as it provides the perfect blank canvas to enhance the look and wear time of makeup. It can also be worn alone as part of your skincare regimen, blurring out skin imperfections and signs of aging for a flawless, soft-focus finish.

Powered by:
  • Vitamin E: Natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and antioxidant
  • Vitamin C: Antioxidant that fights free radical damage and premature signs of aging while brightening skin

    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

    At first application it seems to blur my large pores and even out my skin texture. Foundation applies nicely over it. But it's effect disappears from my oily skin within a very short amount of time. If you REapply over FOUNDATION it will remove the foundation from that area leaving a patchy appearance that is difficult to correct. If you have even slightly oily skin, this will not work for you as those areas are where you need to apply this product.

      Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

      I have been trying Tarte products for the last few months and this is without a doubt, a game changer for me! It controls my oily zones without drying out the rest of my skin and leaves it feeling so soft and smooth. I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation and now I usually only have to touch up once at the end of the day if that! The texture and feel completely threw me off at first but after one use I was sold.

          I've been looking for something to help me keep the foundation on my nose from fading throughout the day. No matter what I use or how careful I am it has always been gone by the end of the day! This primer was a game changer. Keeps the foundation on my nose, and makes the rest of my face look smooth as well. Thank you to the tarte makeup artist who worked with me at a tarte ulta event for the recommendation!

                Got this product a few years back as a sample. Lasted a long time as I only used it as a eye primer. I finally found it in my local Ulta store and grabbed it right up. I have started using it a a face primer also. It glides on like silk. Gives my face a nice, natural matte look if i dont not want to wear any makeup at all. It is not greasy at all. I love it!!

                    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

                    I has such high hopes for this primer! It let me down hard. Not only does it not smooth nor fill in lines and wrinkles, it makes foundation application MUCH more difficult. It isn't smooth like you would hope. Returned this after trying with 2 different foundations and a CC cream.

                        Our timeless & poreless primers are both great for tartelettes with combination skin since they help blur the appearance of pores and absorb excess oil without drying out the skin.
