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.

It works but putting on makeup was not smooth; I use a creamy and a brush and I didn't like it tugging my face while applying. I feel this is great for ladies that like the matted look.

          Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

          I bought this primer to help fill in pores and old scars. While it is effective at smoothing (to a point - don't expect this to cover up big scars), it is sometimes difficult to apply. It sometimes clumps up or leaves little specks behind. You really have to rub it in well. That said, it makes a great base underneath foundation and seems to last through a normal work day.

                      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.

                      A:

                      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.
