Item #: 2245667 Size: 1.0 oz

Ask a Question
A waterproof, 12-hour primer helps makeup stay in place longer while brightening skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

This hydrating base not only helps keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours of perfect wear time, it's also a quick fix for tired or sallow skin - just one application gives the appearance of a healthy, youthful complexion. The lightweight texture is ideal for a base under foundation to wake-up your makeup but can also be worn alone as a treatment to counteract dullness. Whichever application you choose, skin is left smooth, feeling hydrated and looking flawless.

Powered by:
  • Vitamins A&E: Natural preservatives that also act as anti-inflammatory emollients to fight free radical damage and prevent premature signs of aging while brightening skin.

Dermatologist tested. Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten.
Smooth a pearl-size amount onto skin (pre-foundation) or dab under eyes and on eyelids for the ultimate clean slate or wear alone as a treatment to counteract dullness.

    I purchase this because I love how it works, and cannot find a totally safe product on the market. Tarte uses mostly safe ingredients in their products, so it's the best I can find.

          After buying a whole bunch of products at once, I had a little bit of buyer's remorse and began questioning each item's value. One day I skipped using this primer, and boy was I sorry. This stuff is amazing at making the foundation do its job best. Never will I skip it again!

                  Comments about Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer:

                  When I first bought this I was trying to find my HG primer. I thought it was okay at first and set it aside to try some other primers. I eventually came back to this and ended up really liking it. I repurchased as it's the only primer that I like. I prefer water based primers. I hate the way silicone feels on my face.

                  It makes my makeup go on smoother and it sinks in quickly. My makeup stays looking pretty good through my 8hr work day but much not much longer than that, which I'm okay with.

                  • Q:

                    Does this primer have specs of glitter/shimmer in it? I really enjoy the Loreal brightening primer because it gives a satin glow without sparkle. Is this comparable or different on its own?
                    Also, I am sensitive to smells. Does this contain a scent?
                    Thank you!

                      Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer does not have glitter or shimmer in it, and the skinvigorating ingredients allow for 12-hours of waterproof wear time delivering a luminous, hydrated and smooth complexion. It features a very light citrus fragrance that is naturally-derived.
