Welcome to Tanyel Tries, our new beauty column in which Lifestyle Reporter and beauty nerd Tanyel Mustafa tests out the latest products and trends to let you know whether they get our approval – or should be trashed.

Not many primers come with such high status in the beauty world, but Tatcha’s The Silk Canvas Protective Primer is one of those.

Beauty fans will remember, before the days of TikTok and Instagram reels, the glitterati of beauty YouTube was full of positive reviews of this primer when it launched back in 2018.

But – British shoppers had to wait. Tatcha only just landed in the UK, and this product wasn’t even included in the first drop.

Finally now, though, fans can get their hands on it.

It’s rare these days I’m excited to get new slap on my face, given how part and parcel it now is as part of my job (how quickly we get used to things…), but this I was eager to try.

Retailing at SpaceNK for £48, it’s an investment, so this column will always be honest about how well a product stacks up to its claims and whether it’s actually worth your money.

One cheaper dupe version, that has been on British shores for years, is the e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer, going for just £9.

Truthfully, now I’ve tried both, I don’t think the e.l.f. version holds a candle to Tatcha – the former of which feels drying and slightly greasy on my skin, but for those on a budget – especially with oilier skin – it might be worth a go.

So what makes the Tatcha one so special?

Johnny Depp signs new 7-figure deal with Dior following trial win

Johnny Depp has cemented himself as part of the Dior brand over recent years, but it appears the actor has signed a new big money deal.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star is said to have signed a new seven-figure partnership with the luxury brand, following his legal win over ex-wife Amber heard.

Depp, 59, emerged victorious after a six-week trial beginning in April, after suing his ex, 36, for $50million (£40million) for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in 2018 about her experiences with domestic violence.

Despite not being named in the article, Depp’s team argued that it implied he was sexually and physically abusive over the course of their relationship, which the Depp himself vehemently denied.

The trial was a rollercoaster to say the least, with both parties taking to the stand to give recall emotional accounts.

The jury reached a unanimous verdict and awarded Depp $10million (£8.1million) in compensatory damages, and a further $5million (£4million) in punitive damages, while Heard won one of her three defamation countersuit claims against Depp and was awarded $2million (£1.6million).

But the trial doesn’t seem to have stood in Depp’s way of bagging lucrative endorsements, with sources directly connected to his new Dior deal telling dior-sauvage-fragrance-cologne/”TMZ that he ‘just signed back with Dior to be the face of their Sauvage men’s scent.’

It’s thought to be a multi-year deal that was made official after fashion photographer Greg Williams attended one of Depp’s rock concerts back in Paris, to show his support.

Insiders added that the actor did a photoshoot with Williams before and after
