Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer


Jessica B.

This TM is super moisturizing and doesn't oxidize like a lot of others I've tried (with SPF). It does leave the face with a very dewy look, as Bibi said, so if you want to save the step of applying powder for a more subdued glow, this probably isn't for you. However, I find that this blends well and evens out my complexion. With a powder, my skin looks so healthy that I've gotten lots of compliments at work. I even got my mom to use it, and she is strictly a Guerlain and Cle de Peau devotee!

LOVE this stuff!

I just think this tinted moisturizer is the best thing ever! I bought this on a whim, and I'm so glad that I did. The coverage is very good for a tinted moisturizer, it almost leans towards the foundation side. But that's why it's so great. You can also layer this without any cakey efffect at all (if you need extra coverage). I have severely sensitive eyes, and the smell of this does not bother me at all. A definite must have!

Absolutely love this!

In MAC, I am an NC 35-40 and in Tarte's TM, I'm in Agent 14. First off, they have a wide range of colors of both pink & yellow undertones. It provides sheer coverage, but covers nonetheless. This TM evens out my skin & feels great on the skin. Although my acne scars aren't completely covered (I mean it IS a tinted moisturizer), they are definitely a little more disguised. There is shimmer (ever so slightly) but once it's on the face, it's not noticeable but does somehow brighten up my face. Application is nice, it's easy to blend, & looks natural. Normally I set it with a powder but you can definitely get away w/out it. :) Has SPF & is lightweight, so it's perfect for summer.

This is a must have for me! My skin is acne prone so for a while before discovering this brand, I was using foundation to cover acne and acne scars. I decided to try a tinted moisturizer and focus on clearing my skin. Once I started using this product, I noticed that my skin was looking much better. This TM helps keep my skin clear since it's formulated without all the bad stuff. It also has SPF which is very important and this is great for those with sensitive skin. It gives just the right amount of coverage I need. I haven't worn foundation for many many months :D This is a product that I would continue using and recommending. It's almost time for me to restock!

I don't need a lot of coverage, so I actually LOVE tinted moisturizers. This one especially! It evens out skin tone, has SPF, and doesn't feel like you are wearing makeup at all.

Perfect Match. Perfect Everyday Full Coverage Tinted Moisturizer

Ah. The elusive hunt for the perfect foundation. I'd say beside the price, Tarte Smooth Operator in facade is 99.9% the best everyday face product I've ever tried. Usually tinted moisturizers are too sheer for me, but this is more of a full coverage tinted moisturizer which I love! The formula is smooth and creamy and dries naturally on the don't even feel like it's there. I never break out from this product and it comes off easily with a cleansing oil or exfoliator. I love that it has SPF 20 (even though I still wear SPF under, it's nice to know that I get some extra protection). I also love that it has “good for you” ingredients, even though I'm not quite sure how effective they REALLY are. It just feeds my inner eco-goddess :)

Agent 02 (Formerly the shade named Facade) is a PERFECT match for my skin. I'm Fair-light with peach beige undertones and the undertones match perfectly.

I will be sad if this ever gets discontinued and will stock up with 15 tubes!

I love this tinted moisturizer!!! It has the perfect amount of coverage for a summery look. I use it a lot for day when I'm looking to get coverage quick, and it lasts a long time. The coverage is also buildable, so this product can be very versatile. Also, it is light and allows my very sensitive skin to breathe, and it has just the right amount of moisture.

This is one of the first tinted moisturizers I've used and I absolutely like it. It doesn't make my skin oily and it lasts a really long time. I even use extra moisturizer to sheer it out a bit, but it works fine by itself. It has a SLIGHT shimmer to it so I tend to use it more at night than during the bright of day. But no one has said anything to me about it during the day. It does give a very nice dewy texture and blends easily. I use it more for night time only because I tend to do powder for every day. But when I've worn it all day, it lasts all day. Definitely recommend this product.

Looks Great Lasts Long

Application is nice and smooth and it leaves a lovely radiant glow but not overly glowy. This product is also buildable for coverage. Its a natural product so you avoid chemicals.

acts more like a moisturizer for my skin

I like light-medium coverage for my skin so perhaps I was expecting more coverage from this product. For me, the Smooth Operator acts more like a moisturizer with a very light, minimal touch of color. Packed with natural ingredients, this is great for those "I'm not wearing makeup" days where you want to look slightly polished up.

The great thing is that this water-based tinted moisturizer won't clog my pores like most foundations out there. Depending on my tan I use either shade 10 (conceal) or 14 (disguise) and they both blend right into the skin and along the jawline. I have light-medium skin with yellow/beige undertones. It is a bit on the higher end but the Giorgio Armani Face Fabric costs way more, and I like that product way better, unfortunately. I really wanted this to be my 'eco' alternative version of the Face Fabric.
