Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer: Is It A Hit or Miss?
It’s no secret that I am truly a primer junkie. If it has the word ‘primer’ on the label, you best believe I’m the sucker who will buy it! I have spent so much money trying out new brands and formulas that I have lost count. However, my husband probably hasn’t 😉
Today I will be giving my honest opinion on HOURGLASS VEIL MINERAL PRIMER. I was not given this to review, I purchased myself so you can ensure this is my true feelings on this product.
What Sephora says in their description: What it is:
An oil-free primer with a silky, airy texture that leaves a smooth canvas for makeup, while reducing the look of redness, pores, and wrinkles.
What it does:
With a texture unlike any other, this silky primer extends the wear of makeup while also concealing redness, minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and providing broad spectrum SPF 15 for a perfect complexion that lasts. It leaves a smooth, even surface so that foundation effortlessly glides on and stays put for all-day makeup wear. This unique primer has an airy, silky cloud-like texture and layers onto skin without added weight or a greasy after feel. It delivers Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sun protection with mineral-derived sunscreens. It’s ideal for all skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin, and it repels water so makeup stays looks freshly applied all day long.
My personal opinion on HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer: First of all I have combo skin so finding a primer that does what it says isn’t always an easy task.
Upon seeing this primer I was drawn to the sleek packaging. The frosted glass pump style container is long and fits perfectly around your hand. No awkward shaped bottles here. It dispenses the perfect amount of primer so you can use one pump, or more if you feel necessary. Once I started applying this primer, it was love at first feel! OH MY GOD, my skin felt like silk. It gave me the most incredible canvas to start my foundation application.
My fine lines were filled, my pores appeared smaller, and any discolouration and redness had dramatically been reduced. I was in Love. I feel as though it made my foundation look flawless. As I stated, I have tried so many primers but HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is one of the best I have ever purchased. It exceeded my expectations and I can justify the hefty price tag attached for such a great product.
I will most definitely repurchase this primer and I would recommend any skin type to try it. I know you will love it as well!
Suggestion: Go to your local Sephora and ask for a sample. If you love it as much as I do, I would suggest purchasing the 60ML as it is a much better value as opposed to the 30ML bottle.
I hope this review helps you out if you are in the market for a new primer.
