    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

    Just bought this today. Unfortunately they didn't have a sample to try so I bought it based on the reviews. I put a tiny dab on the back of my hand and wow.. horrible smell that doesn't come off after washing. Smells like the heavy cologne the guy at Sunday meeting wears and gives hugs to everyone spreading his fragrance around.. i.e. it smells strongly of men's cologne. Taking it back tomorrow. Bummed because it seems like such a nice product otherwise.

      I bought this after recommendation from a friend and am extremely glad I did! I have been using Benefit Porefessional for over a year and have been wanting something that will keep my makeup in place all day. This primer definitely gets the job done PLUS gives your skin a flawless finish all day long. I have oily/combo skin and can go all day without having to touch up or reapply my makeup, which I was having to do in the past. Love this primer!

          Okay, this stuff is expensive, no getting around that. However, I don't need to use much of it, it blends and spreads really well. It smells amazing. It does a great job of smoothing over pores. The best part, however, is how it keeps me matte for WAY longer than other primers I've used. Like, hours and hours longer. I love this and will continue to purchase.

                  I love how it helps hide the lines and texture of "mature" skin. I usually wear a little powder over it. That's all that's needed. I have my daughter using it, too. Totally different skin type, but it works for her, too.

                        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.

                      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?

                        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:
