              Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

              I was so excited to try this product. I gave it a try without changing anything else in my makeup routine and it irritated my skin. Both times I tried it in two different weeks, each time I had a whitehead the very next day. My skin is normally clear with an occasional hormonal pimple on my chin but never a whitehead and both times when I tried this product once on my check and once on my nose I ended up with a very painful whitehead. I wanted to love it but it just didn't work out. I returned it and will stick to using the "too faced poreless primer".

                    I tried this to help fill in pores and also to help fill in my "Number 11's" between my brows. I really couldn't tell a difference at all. I love the Tarte clay foundation but the Primer didn't work for me. I may go back and try the Tarte pore minimizer instead and see how that does.

                    I've used just about every primer I can get myhands on and have never found one that I love...until now. This primer is perfect! Leaves my skin feeling fresh and healthy while giving my skin a matte look which is perfect under my makeup. I'll never use anything else.

                    I've used over 30 high end primers, this one is the holy grail! I absolutely love it, it is a miracle for my extremely oily skin. It keeps my mineral, powder, and liquid foundation in place. And my makeup sets beautifully!! My coworkers (even my husband!) noticed the first day I wore it; you must try this primer! Some people mention it streaking, I think they may be pressing too hard when applying to their face because it just glides on for me. Makeup stays all day 12+ hours, whereas before, I was lucky to get about 4-5 hours of good wear. I'm permanently hooked!!!

                    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.

                          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! :-)

                          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.
