I have combination skin, my T-zone can get really crazy with oil depending on what products I use. I’m always on the look out for primers to control oiliness and keep my makeup looking perfect for hours. So when @lulu_luxe mentioned this primer on her IG story, I ran out and bought it. I’m used to my primers coming in a plastic squeeze tube, but the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer comes in a glass jar with gold top. I prefer the squeeze tube, so I don’t have to keep digging in the jar and I can better control the amount of product I get. So this was a con for me, looks really pretty on my makeup table though.
I don’t have large pores or a lot of break outs, but I do have laugh lines. I tried this out while I was in cuba. I put this on my face after my moisturizer and sunscreen, and then I used my Becca primer in my t-zone to keep my extra matte. I can instantly see a difference in my beat. I was SHOOKTH!!! This primer blurs and smooths any texture on the face, my makeup looked flawless, and stayed matte for hours.
Final Thoughts: 4/5
My only con would be the packaging. But the way the product delivers, I can turn a blind eye to the jar. This is easily became one of my favorite primers.
I hope you found this review helpful, this was 100% my unbiased and real ass opinion. All products were purchased with my own money.
