          While this product does what it claim, it isn't for the darker skinned people. It leaves a white residue on your face. At first I thought I applied too much. The second time I definitely didn't and still yielded the same results.

              I have VERY oily skin especially for someone who is 52. I have a drawer full of products to try and stabilize my skin, while not making me break out. This is the first one that does all that I need it to do without any negative effects. I use it under Tarte Amazonian clay foundation and it doesn't budge. All. Day. Long. Yay!

              This primer was super highly rated, so I gave it a try in spite of the higher price point. What I found is that while the product itself is excellent, it doesn't feel miles above other products that come in larger containers for a lower price. I enjoy using this product, but I probably won't buy it again.

                  I really wanted to love this stuff. I used it as a primer with different foundations and the results were always the same. Tarte just hasn't perfected their primers yet, which is a shame because I really have love everything else from their collections.

                        Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

                        I have large pores and used this a few years ago (probably 2-3 jars) before I decided it was too expensive and moved on to other products. Recently purchased this again and wonder why I ever left. I use this primer only for my nose and surrounding area where I have visible pores and it does a great job of filling them in and smoothing things over. I use a different primer over the rest of my face because I need moisture in those areas, not pore coverage. This product has no scent which is a plus and a little goes a long way.
                        if you use too much of this product it will pill and clump up and generally be a mess. You start with a small around, smooth it over your pores and add more if needed. I would NOT use this all over my face because I don't think it will sit well on moving parts such as cheek and upper lip areas. It is too stiff for those areas, in my opinion.
                        Yes, it can be expensive to buy this plus another primer but you only use this in small areas and if you close the lid tightly it will last very well.

                            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.
