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.

        I have really huge pores on my cheeks right on both sides of my nose and I get very oily there throughout the day so that just makes them even more noticeable. I tried this and it fills in those huge pores and works absolute wonders. It smells great too! 10/10 highly recommend

I been searching for something that covers the pores for years, finally found what really works---

                  I love how it makes my makeup look in the beginning of the day but if you have a lot going on or a long day I would not recommend it, 5 hours in and it started clumping up.
                  Definitely not worth it for the price, as much as I love the way it makes me look for the first three hours of my day, I can find something else in the same price range or cheaper that works just as 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.

                        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.
