A melt-in smoothing primer with innovative blurring and filling technology for a youthful appearance perfectly primed for makeup application.

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
  • Mineral pigments: Soothe and soften skin

Smooth a pearl size amount over skin before applying makeup or wear alone as a treatment to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.

          Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

          I recently picked this up thinking it was going to be similar to the NYX pore filler only more in the container!
          Well... I use this mainly around my nose (cheek area), center forehead, and on my chin- basically the center of my face to counteract larger pores. It is just ok to me. It is expensive for not being as effective as the Pore Filler by NYX. I found it harder to blend out, my foundation seemed to stick and slide to it - so just something to be aware of..

                            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.

                            This primer doesn't offer any coverage so a foundation or tinted powder are recommended if you're looking to cover imperfections or even out skin tone. If you're looking for a primer with medium coverage, you could try our BB tinted treatment primer SPF 30 since it offers the benefits of both a primer and a medium coverage foundation in one multi-tasking formula.

You can apply it on top of your moisturizer for a smooth, soft focus prior to makeup applications.

                            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:
