Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Review

Hi there! Hourglass Cosmetics has been nailing the makeup forefront with magical powders that illuminate my skin. Without feeling overly done – I look refreshed, well rested and my skin: balanced. Migrating from the powders is the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer that claims to be 1. water-resistant, 2. absorbs excess oils, 3. minimizes the appearance of pores, 4. hide and soften the look of skin imperfections and fine lines. With the warm weather upon us – these claims are right up my ally. I also have oily skin and was very eager to test this primer being that it is oil-free.

Some information from the Sephora website:

  • mineral-based, water-resistant primer that neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine
  • creates a smooth, uniform canvas for flawless makeup application
  • water-resistant primer 100 percent free of fragrance, oil, and gluten
  • provides broad spectrum SPF 15 protection
  • available in three sizes: full ($52), jumbo ($72), and travel ($18)
  • vegan, cruelty-free
  • click here to check it out on Sephora.com
The bottle is packaged in the signature Hourglass design
A primer with a pump – yes!

In the pictorial above:

  • 1 – one pump of the product
  • 2 – blended product above the dotted line, no product below the dotted line
  • 3 – approximately two minutes until the product set above the dotted line, without product below the dotted line

As the product set (#3 picture) you can see how “light is distributed to help hide and soften the look of skin imperfections.”

Thoughts: the Veil Primer has certainly made it way up my primer collection. I have been using it for a week and I enjoy how light-weight it feels. Applying my foundation over top this makes any foundation I use feel new again. This primer has extended my makeup for three hours before having to powder my nose. This is an award winning, #1 worldwide best selling product that also conceals redness

Much love, Gigi
