“This primer acts as a smudge-proof base for shadow while preventing fallout and migration of color. The universal shade glides on easily and powers through the day into the evening for 12 hours of perfect wear.” – Sephora.com
The Tarte Cosmetics Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12-hour smoothing eye primer dries completely clear and does not affect the hue or tone of the shades you are using. It helps show the true color of the shadow you are using so it can pop even more. It’s great for shimmers, satins, mattes and even glitters. But most importantly, once it’s on it does not smudge or crease.
On the top right, I took a picture using Tarte’s “Sage Advice” green shadow. On the LEFT I applied it to my hand by itself, on the RIGHT I applied the same shadow using Tarte’s Clean Slate 360 Creaseless Eye Primer (while it was still wet❗️Very important). Then I walked around my house for about 3 1/2 hours or so straighten, cleaning and organizing. Doing my everyday thing.
On the bottom right, I ran my hand under warm water (without soap of course) and attempted to rub the eyeshadows off my hand. As you can see the shadow without the primer was almost washed off, the shadow with the primer was completely unaffected.

Overall | This is my favorite eyeshadow primer on the market right now. I’ve been using it for over a year. I don’t know why it took me this long to post a review because I tell anyone that will listen about it. It is creamy, light and applies smoothly for staying power. I do have one tip for the best application of this product: once applied to your eye, area apply the eyeshadow while it’s still slightly wet only in the places you want it to be the deepest and blend out.
