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
  • Green bean extract: Known for anti-wrinkle and pore minimizing properties

    The product felt a little greasy on my face at first. It is fairly lightweight once it dries. Works well under a full coverage powder.

                  A consultant at the store did not recommend this, but ot came highly recommended by someone I know who looks so much younger with makeup on. No regrets, this is the best primer ever. I have a collection of ones Ive tried. Some are too greasy, dont help pores enough, etc. NOT THIS ONE, THIS ONE ROCKS! Definitely get it. I went back and got another one for back-up.

                        Thanks for reaching out, Terry! This product can be used in conjunction with your existing skincare regimen to help blur skin imperfections like large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. You can apply it on top of your moisturizer for a smooth, soft focus prior to makeup applications.

                      I have very dry skin, and I've just started using a BB primer for sun protection/moisture, but I love how this fills in my fine lines. I've decided to wear both--should I put this or my BB primer on first?

                        This product is not oil-free. It is dermatologist-tested and formulated for all skin types including oily skin. It features a natural, soft-focus finish. If you prefer a matte finish, you may wish to try the Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer, which is a great option for those whose primary concern is mattifying the skin, absorbing excess oil, and minimizing the appearance of pores:
