    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

    This is an awesome product for filling in our lines. I use it only on my forehead and parenthesis and it works wonders. I have tried using this product as an all over primer, and even with a thin layer of primer, it kept separating from my foundation (tried powder and liquid) leaving streaks and clumps and such... not cute. I tried it with several high end and drugstore foundations and the same results appeared. It does wear nicely all over the face and has a smooth matte finish.

    Works great to fill in those lines, not for all over priming before foundation. Would buy again.

      I love this primer! My skin is smooth and my makeup stays in place all day. I do like the smell of it as well. This is my second jar and I can't imagine I'll find a better primer.

I HAVE TOLD SO MANY PEOPLE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT ALREADY!!!!!!!!

              I was so excited to try this and was very disappointed once I put it on my face. I tried it in the back of my hand at the store and it felt smooth and looked great but on my face, not so much. It didn't stay put under or over my foundation, I broke out within a day and I never break out. I'm a huge fan of Tarte but this one had to go back.

                  The texture of this primer is amazing. It glides on the skin smoothly and fills in pores and fine lines. The only downside to this is the price. L'Oreal had a primer similar to this for a fraction of the price, however I will say I like this one more.

                      Let me start by saying that I have searched high and low for my primer holy grail, and here it is! I switched from the Tarte BB Cream tinted mostuizer/primer to this just yesterday and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I have oily skin, so by late afternoon it's as though my make up melts away. I get shiny on my forehead and nose area- this stuff is like buttah! Smooth, rich, and lasts all day! I used this under my foundation, and used the Tarte finishing powder on top, and it's almost 5 and no shine, and my makeup looks fresh! This stuff rocks! Helps hide my deep forehead wrinkles, I'm 24 but super expressive with my brows- hence the deeper wrinkles, this helps minimize those bad boys really well! I am happy happy happy with this primer!

                          Turn back the hands of time with tarte’s new 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.

                          There is no sunscreen within this formula. For best results, we recommend applying a small amount, as applying an excess amount could cause a "pilling" effect.
