      Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

      Once I tried this in store, I couldn't leave without it. It is horribly expensive, but it works and you only need a little bit. I use it under my eyes, upper lip and on my chin, so the jar should last me a while. My only con is the lack of staying power. If this would last longer than a few hours, it would be my HG primer.

        Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

        I have been using the face primer for a few months now. I like the fact it has many natural ingredients and not all those chemicals. My face doesn't break out with this, and i have sensitive skin... This is why i continue using this product. I will only use organic or natural skin care. My skin and make up definitely look better with the primer than without. But, it doesn't conceal or hide pores as well as i need it to. So i gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

        I used this product prior to applying my foundation. Applying it over my pores minimized them d significantly within seconds!y face looked flawless after applying my foundation. It last, it doesn't breakdown with the natural oils in your skin as I have oily skin. My skin also looked smooth and young. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this primer. You will do yourself a disservice should you choose another primer especially if you have large pores like I do.

                  The. best. I tried Tarte's other primer and it was fine, but felt strange on and didn't seem to last all day. This primer fixes all of that and then some. It smooths out fine lines and pores and leaves a great starting surface on my skin for makeup. I use it daily and for special events and find it works really well for both. I particularly like that it really helps my makeup last all day.

                        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:

                        Yes, you can certainly apply Timeless Smoothing Primer under tinted moisturizer, BB/CC cream, or foundation for the perfect smooth base.

                        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.
