How I use Tatcha The Pearl

I don’t enjoy wearing undereye concealer. Since beginning to wear lighter complexion,
the minute I pile something on - even slightly - it feels very heavy to me. I don’t really have dark circles, and I have fine lines under my eyes; and no matter what I do, concealer will always crease on me.
Due to all of these factors the Tatcha The Pearl tinted eye cream has always appealed to me.
An eye cream, that will sink in - therefore no creases, and give a little bit of coverage. Other than
the price tag, I was sold.

Because of the price tag, and it being sold out on in my colour, I did hold off for
a bit. However, I turned the notifications on to inform me when it was back in stock, and
when I got that “it’s here” email I took the plunge.

After a little trial and error, and contemplation of returning the product, I’ve found the perfect way to use it.

The Pearl is definitely a skincare/make up hybrid product. It’s main purpose is to conceal with it’s thin and moisturising texture. I would not use this at night because I obviously don’t need the coverage to go to bed, and personally, I prefer to use something thicker under the eye in my evening routine.

I apply the Pearl during my make up routine, not my skincare routine. I prime my face and eyes and then go in with the eye cream. I dab it on with my finger and then blend with my Real Techniques setting brush - my favourite brush e v e r. You can layer this product for extra coverage, which I have tried, but typically I go for one light layer.

After I’ve applied all my creams - which during the summer is more than the cooler months, including my Fenty contour stick, my Glossier cloud paint, and the Frank Body illuminator
(which I purchased last week and am in love with, Katie Jane Hughes made me do it…
If you don’t get the reference google her NOW).

My favourite powder to use under my eyes for the past year or so has been the Glossier
Wowder. I’m an oily girl but my under eyes can get a little dry. The Wowder is not drying at all and does provide a tiiiiiny bit of coverage. It sets the Tatcha cream perfectly, the two work
very well together. If you have very dry under eyes or are going for a no makeup look but wanting to use the Tatcha Pearl I don’t think it’s necessary to set it, I’ve just found it
wears best throughout the day when I do.

Despite it being on the pricier side you do get a tremendous amount of product. I’ve
had it for about three weeks and I’m still using what was on the lid.

It’s not a necessity and it’s not for everyone, but I’m very much enjoying it. And it’ll be amazing on no make up days once the semester starts and I’m bombarded with stress and rushing to class.

Another Tatcha product that has impressed me. Time to purchase some more...
