Review: If you follow me on Instagram, I mentioned that I purchased this primer after watching Jasmine (JuicyJas) on YouTube. She said it was somewhat similar (not a dupe) to the Tatcha Silk Canvas Protective Primer. I was curious and decided to try it - at that time I did not own the Tatcha Primer just yet. It definitely has a similar concept - a balm type of primer in a compact.
The box packaging is typical of most NYX products - black box with white typography. The compact is made out of plastic with a mirror - similar to their bronzers. The product contains .21 oz which is way less than the typical amount of primers out in the market (typically at least 1 oz). The product consistency smooth and emollient (in an oily, waxy kind of way). However, it applies easily and smoothly on the skin. It does extend the wear of my makeup without making my face look oily or breaking up the foundation. It is also way cheaper than the Tatcha primer although this has way less product that I have already hit pan after 4 to 5 uses. I would recommend this product if you do not want to pay $52 for the Tatcha primer. If you have oily skin, you may want to steer away from this product or if you have larger pores, it may clog your pores.
