What: The Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer is a makeup primer that helps your makeup last longer all while blurring your skin. Along with doing that, it also acts as a protective wall to keep makeup out of your skin so that you don’t get breakouts! This is a super high-end primer, retailing for $62 CDN at Sephora. The balm is packaged in a big circular case and it comes with a disc, which you can use to get the right amount of primer for your face! You can use this all over your face, your eye lids and your lips for a flawless makeup application. This blurs pores, controls oiliness and evens out your skin tone. The primer contains silk extracts too nourish the skin, leaving a smooth base for your makeup giving you a soft focus finish. There are also anti-pollution natural active ingredients in this primer. This creates a barrier between the world and skin. It also has hadasei-3 which is made up of great tea, rice and algae extracts; giving you a youthful and healthy skin!
The Good: Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a makeup primer like this before. I’ve had a ton favourites but I think this one takes the cake for me. It was super cool to apply, with the disc and all. But most importantly, my makeup looked flawless. This was the first time (in a LONG time) that I had practically everyone who talked to me ask me how I achieved the perfect makeup look. Seriously. Now you know. It’s because of this product. My skin felt smooth, soft and this was super easy to apply. A little goes a long way. The texture of this formula is incredible! It’s silky smooth (duh) and it blends flawlessly when applied to your face, lids and/or lips. My makeup lasted all night long. In fact, I had to use makeup remover to take all of it off! I know a lot of people might stay away from this because of its price tag…but honestly, think of it as an investment for your skin in the long run! In the past couple months, I’ve learned that the only way you can get flawless makeup is if you work on your skin. Using products that benefit your skin is important and this product will do that for you! I have extremely sensitive and combination skin; and this did not irritate my skin at all! No breakouts, no redness, no nothing! My face was radiant and my skin felt good! The packaging is cute! It comes with a disc and instructions on how to use that disc to get the right amount of product for your face. I’ve used this primer sooooo many times and I have yet to make a major dent! Honestly, this is literally the best primer I have ever used! There’s no leftover residue on your face and it feels super lux!
The Bad: NOTHING!
