Not heavy at all...luv luv luv this...Usually I buy a primer, and I'm pretty content with it because I never expect primer to do much for me, it's always been one of those things that I just apply because it makes me feel like it's helping (when I never honestly notice a difference), but Tarte's primer BLEW ME AWAY...I bought a sample size of this before and was really impressed so in the spirit of going on a major Sephora splurge whilist on holiday I decided to pick up the fill size I do really like this product however I feel that the Sephora Perfecting Primer is just as good and is half of price of this Tarte Version I tend to use this around my nose on my pores as opposed to all over my face and find that both the Tarte and Sephora versions do a great job

If you want to know more…
This multitasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer is for face, eyes, and lips. Silk extracts feel nourishing on skin and diminish the look of pores, fines lines, and imperfections for the perfect canvas before makeup.

Anti-pollution natural active ingredients fight immediate attack from environmental stressors and help support the skin’s barrier function to act against future attack, visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dullness. Pink and gold pearl helps even skin tone for a healthy look, and hadasei-3—a trinity of Japanese superfoods green tea, rice, and algae—visibly restores youthful radiance.

Tatcha brings a modern evolution of this time-honored practice to life in The Silk Canvas.

the problems is the next morning my face was irritated :( and it has broken-out, I though well maybe it is due to something else, and I tried this primer again a few days later after my skin recovered a little bit... the next morning same thing :( If you do not have sensitive skin, I recommend this product because it really does wonders to the way make-up looks and lasts... I am still in search of a primer that won't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin...Not as happy with this as I wanted to be, I have acne so I use a salicylic acid spot treatment that can give me a little dryness, and I was hoping this primer would help with how the makeup sits on those dry spots
