Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer has been making the rounds in the bloggersphere. So far, everyone has been rating this oil free primer quite high. So I knew it was a matter of time to get my paws on this primer.
Packaging wise, this primer comes in a glass jar with a pump. It is quite heavy to carry for travel but as an everyday use primer, it sits beautifully on my desk. The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is oil free, has SPF 15 and is paraben free, fragrance free, gluten free, sulfate free, phthalate free, nanoparticle free and vegan friendly.
On a daily basis, I usually only need one pump for full face application and since this is a pump applicator it helps to control the amount I need for full face as I have the tendency to over use products all the time.
One look at the colour, the primer has a little bluish/purple tone to it but once massaged onto skin, it rubs off clear. Texture wise, it is silky and absorbs into skin in no time. I didn’t even have to wait for primer to absorb before applying make up.
Due to the bluish tone, it gives the illusion of an even and brighter skin finish. It doesn’t break me out and leaves my smooth and illusion of a poreless finish. In fact, for days when I am running late in the mornings; I find myself reaching for this primer > concealer > translucent powder and it is sufficent for me without having to pile on full face foundation.
All in all, I quite like this primer and it is quite comparable to my all time HG primer.
