TARTE CLEAN SLATE SMOOTHING PRIMER



It wasn't long ago I was talking all things primers in my Primer Edit post- and typically, just as the post went up, yet another primer arrived in the post. This new primer from Tarte is unlike the rest, the Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer (£27.00,) is presented in frosted glass jar packaging and looks more like a moisturiser.

This product has a very rich formula and a thick consistency, meaning it is brilliant at blurring pores (and lines if you have them,) as well as creating an extremely smooth, soft cushion like base for foundation.
A flaw in it's thick consistency and spongey finish is that applying foundation takes a little longer than usual, it's a little harder to blend and spread- so I tend to use this primer with lighter watery foundations such as Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua.
It's not hydrating- so I'd stay away if you have dehydrated skin, it's more suitable for normal/combination and oily skin, so I do like to moisturize heavily before use and make sure my skins having a 'good day.'
And if you're looking for radiance or a glow, stay away- if you're after a matte finish to your make-up, this will be the perfect product to add some mattifying effect to any foundation.

Not only can this be used as a primer, but also by it's self as a 'pore' treatment. According to it's packaging this can be used as a face mask like product and be left on the face to decrease pore size, (something I'm yet to try out.)
It does carry a little scent too, but personally I haven't noticed it effecting my super sensitive skin.

Have you tried any Tarte primers? Or is this one you'd want to try out yourself?

  3. I haven't tried any Tarte primers, but this one sounds really good! Unfortunately I tend to have drier skin, so it's probably not a purchase I'll make. Still, I'm tempted to get it even though I know it might not work well with me haha. Great review :) xx

    1. Use a rich moisturiser and it should be okay! I just moisture overload on dryer skin days and it's great. Thank you!x
