I have heard so many people rave about the Tarte Smoothing primer, the one in the jar, that I had to order it to test it out. The one I ordered had the limited edition packaging as well.
Alas, it did not look the same as on their website. I thought it was jewelled but it was just green sequins. My bad! The packaging is a glass frosted jar and the lid is a screw on top.
The product itself is thick yet spreads easily. There is a scent but nothing over the top. It does do a wonderful job of minimising the appearance of pores and fills in minor lines. The texture gives the skin a smooth base for foundation application. There is no improvement with longevity of the foundation, especially if you are oily. Then you better use a setting spray.
I like to press this in the areas of concern on my face, rather than rub for maximum effect. This one does live up to the hype around it!!
