FREE deluxe mini Tarteist Lip Paint w/any $30 Tarte purchase
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.

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

    Loving this primer so muchI It feels so moisturizing and held up all day even in warmer temps. I have oily skin but this primer feels so nourishing and beneficial to my skin and didn't feel heavy in the slightest. This has become a staple in my make up routine. I would recommend it if your looking for a primer that doesn't feel like a blanket of silicone. Works well for every day. Really, I can't say enough about it!

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

          Overall, I'd say it's a pretty decent primer & worth the money I spent on it. However, when using it, it feels more like a hydrating moisturizer instead of an actual primer that will help my foundation look better. I've found that I like using it best when I use a small amount of it as my moisturizer & then put the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer on top of as my actual primer.

              • 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.
