FREE deluxe mini Tarteist Lip Paint w/any $30 Tarte purchase
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 can't say enough good things about this primer. It completely covers all imperfections, leaving my skin feeling smooth and looking absolutely flawless. It's so lightweight I don't even know I have it on. It helps to absorb the oils on my skin so my foundation lasts longer. It's fabulous!

    regret buying it

    By crose92

    from Sacramento, CA

    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

    I fell for buying this because of how velvety it felt. But I have larger pores and dry skin and this does not set well on my face at all. No matter what foundation I wear it doesn't stay and rubs everywhere. Disappointing.

            I have dry skin I was recommended this by an ulta worker- this product is clumpy and applies chunky and unevenly on the skin. It almost feels like little dots of residue are left flakey on my skin. Not worth the price and definitely not worth how much is in the bottle.

                  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.

              • Q:

                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?

                  A:

                  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:

                  Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer is a great option for those whose primary concern is mattifying the skin, absorbing excess oil, and minimizing the appearance of pores, while Timeless Smoothing Primer is a great option for those whose primary concern is blurring the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, and repairing and preventing the visible signs of aging. Both are indicated for all skin types and work wonderfully to create a flawless canvas for makeup application. We hope this info helps! :-)
