Hit or Miss: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer

(via sephora.com)

Hey all! It’s time for a review once again. Let’s talk primer. I almost never really talk about primers on le blog because I don’t really test many. If I find one I like, I stick with it. I’ve never really dabbled into high-end primers because drugstore primers and Milk of Magnesia (MoM) work pretty well for me. However, I’ve been hearing about it for forever! I sampled it a few months ago and decided to finally get it and I finally want to share my thoughts with you.

The description from Sephora says, “This clean, satin-finish formula helps keep makeup looking fresh and prevents fading. Veil Mineral Primer also absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light to help hide and soften skin imperfections and fine lines.” When I used this for the first time, my skin immediately felt like silk! It absorbs right into my skin & my foundation goes on flawlessly! My face looks airbrushed and my pores aren’t as visible. Also, My makeup does stay put a smidge better than when I use Maybelline’s Baby Skin or L’oreal’s Miracle Blur. I’m not too sure about the oil being absorbed and what not but I really do enjoy this product. It’s definitely a HIT for me. It also has an SPF of 15 which is a bonus. Any product that has SPF, is a bonus for me.

You can pick it up at Sephora for $52 (1 oz). I know that’s pricey but the smaller bottle (.33 oz.) for $18 will last you about 2-3 months because you only need a pump of this stuff for your face.
