Tarte Clean Slate 360° Creaseless 12 Hour Smoothing Eye Primer Review




 Tarte's Clean Slate 360° Creaseless 12 Hour Smoothing Eye Primer is a "waterproof eye primer that locks eyeshadow in place while preventing fallout an migration for true shadow payoff. The universal shade glides on easily and powders through the day into the evening for 12 hours of perfect wear time. 360° Creaseless can be used as both a shadow primer and under eye base to smooth areas around the eye, giving you a seamless application and all around 360° eye solutions". This eye primer contains Vitamin E to nourish the delicate eye area. I got a little 2.6g (.09oz) sample in Tarte's Clean Slate Primer Trio, which proved to be defective. I received a new sample courtesy of Tarte's Customer Service, which sparked my Customer Service Kudos post about the brand. The full size tube retails for $19, which is on par with the other high end eye primers. Tarte is a cruelty free brand. This primer was made int he USA. The entire Clean Slate line is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrance.
 
 Tarte's Clean Slate 360° Creaseless Primer comes in a white squeeze tube with a coated bamboo cap (though my sample has a brown plastic cap). The tube offers the Tarte logo and product name written in purple lettering. Silver, purple, and spring green flowers wrap around the top and bottom of the tube. Twisting off the cap reveals a needle nose dispenser. 

 Tarte's Clean Slate 360° Creaseless Eye Primer is a very thin, off white liquid. It's so easy to squeeze out too much and over apply this primer because it seems so thin. This primer dries down very quickly to a power finish, and creates a smooth base to apply any eyeshadow over. Tarte's Eye Primer boosts the color payoff of any eyeshadow, but I think it really pumps up matte eyeshadows, giving them a smoother, more even look. I don't feel like Tarte's 360° Creaseless Primer improves the blendability of eyeshadow. On the other hand I think that the Tarte Creaseless Primer improves the wear of eyeshadows, preventing creasing and fading. This primer keeps my shadows perfect throughout nine hour work days in a greasy, hot kitchen, which is quite a feat. This eye primer certainly holds up to it's waterproof claim, if you swatch the primer on your hand and leave it there, it just does not come off. This product will separate in the tube and can get oily and and kinda gross, so I encourage you to shake or palpate your tube before use.
Tarte's Clean Slate 360° Creaseless Eye Primer is pretty good, but quite different from the other eye primers I've tried. Packaging is both cute and functional, which I always appreciate. Unlike most eye primers, which are creamy, Tarte's is a liquid. This primer does a great job of preventing creasing and fading and is a wonderful base for matte eyeshadows. I likely won't repurchase this eye primer, as I have several other primers waiting in the wings. If you work with a lot of matte eyeshadows, Tarte's Clean Slate 360° Creaseless Eye Primer is a great choice.
