FREE deluxe Timeless Smoothing Primer w/any $30 Tarte purchase
A skin-perfecting, waterproof mattifying base that not only helps keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours, but it also refines the appearance of pores and diffuses fine lines and imperfections.

Prime the skin for an overall soft-focus effect as you extend the wear of your makeup and mask imperfections - just one application leaves skin looking instantly smoother, softer and refined.

Powered by:
  • Avocado oil: Pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the pit, this natural oil is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E and protein and has known skin soothing properties

Dermatologist tested. Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten.

    Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer:

    I looovee Tarte but I just have this thing with primers I guess... They just don't do anything most of the time! And this is another one of those experiences. This product smells citrusy and light.. It makes your face feel moisturized and smooth. However, it did nothing to make my makeup look better or stay on longer. Some days I forget to apply this and I literally see no difference whatsoever. I will continue to use it to prep my skin but will be looking into other primers for my next purchase.

          As a person that suffers from seasonal dry skin then oily with the constant speculation of sweaty nose and under lip. This primer on its own has saved me so much on my make up. I would highly recommend it.

          I have such oily skin and have tried so many primers but this one by far throws the rest out of the ballpark!! I am so in love with this and for the price it is it's so worth it cause all you need is a little blob and boom your set all day!!! Definitely will never stop using this! I am more then satisfied and so happy Tarte has made such a great primer that works so good for people with oily skin and blemishes! It makes your face look smooth and flawless..so give me a good reason why you wouldn't want to try this out? Who doesn't want matte, smooth, and perfect skin?

                The sales lady told me this product is good for oily skin, as I told her MANY times I have very oily skin. I regret spending the money for this as I NEVER it because I strongly dislike the way it makes my skin feel. Even worse, it made me break out! So sad from a brand that I have been loving!

                    Other primers would make my powder foundation "pill" just like a sweater. This product doesn't do that and I'm in love with it. Will be my primer forever. Wish I got the name of the young lady that recommended it but I did not.
