Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer ($52) is a new facial primer that the brand released a few weeks ago which acts to smooth and prep skin for makeup while extending the wear of your foundation.
I purchased this the day it launched which I believe was the first week of February and I’ve used it every single day since to give it a fair testing period. I had hopes it would turn out as well as Mally Poreless Face Defender which I use and love. The formula actually sounds a hell of a lot better than Mally’s formula in some ways as they throw around words silk powder, flawlessness, and protection against free radicals. They make it seem like you’re doing something really good for your skin not to mention they promise this will even out your skin tone and ease dullness.
It’s weird to me to see this promoted on Instagram showing shots of eyeshadow swatches with and without Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer used. I have no idea how this relates to the product. Sure, the eyeshadow swatches with this used under it look more intense but how does that apply to a product you’re using on your face!? It just seems an irrelevant and unrelated way to promote the product.
None the less, I was intrigued by this and decided to purchase it to try out.
