Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-HR Brightening Primer is first introduced by the brand with their Summer 2012 Collection. It has been viral ever since because the brand states that this primer can last for 12 hours and is silicone-free. The primer is priced at $48.98 for 1 fl oz.
The brand also adds that the primer is waterproof, contains natural antioxidants, Vitamin A, C & E, fruit and plant extracts that will prevent signs of aging while brightens the skin.
Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-HR Brightening Primer has a lightweight texture and acts as a base for your foundation or can be applied alone as a brightening treatment.
So, the primer is lightweight, moisturizing but lasts for 12-HR, well let’s dig in further on how it lasts on my skin. I have a combination skin type. My T-zone area tends to be very oily whereas the rest of my face is very dry.
I personally never use primer for my daily basis routine, but if I want to make my make-up lasts all day I normally use two different primers for my face. For me, using the right base underneath the foundation is the most important part. If you don’t use the right one for your face, a good foundation on top of it won’t lasts.
The consistency of this product is very smooth and watery. The texture itself is very easy to apply and adheres very well to the skin for the application of the foundation.
For my combination skin type, I find that this product acts as a moisturizer for my drier parts of my face, which creates that healthy looking skin. For my T-zone area I find that this product doesn’t hold until 12 hours long. It starts to smear around my nose and forehead area.
I receive many positive feedbacks when I was using this product. My friends say that my face looks very dewy and natural like I’m not wearing any foundation. This type of primer is best if you want to achieve that fresh and natural dewy look. The consistency is very light and is less suitable for people who are looking for that matte and full coverage make-up.
So, based on the overall ratings, I will give the ‘Tarte clean slate flawless 12-hr brightening primer’ a 4 out of 5 stars rating.
