  • "it has a subtle glow and color corrects a bit. it feels extremely light on the skin and isn't oily at all. it doesn't minimize the look of pores though so if that's what you're looking for, this product isn't it. it keeps my makeup looking great throughout the day and also feels a bit moisturizing, which is a pleasant addition." in 42 reviews

Pretty sure this stuff is magic. I don't really have any other primers that I can swear by besides this one. I was picking up some samples of other hourglass products and decided to grab a sample of this primer as well. Wasn't expecting much out of this, but I fell in LOVE with this product. It is super weightless feeling on the skin, and makes my skin glowy without shimmer/glitter. It has some color correction to it as well i would say. If you have nice skin you could probably wear this on its own and look amazing. I think this really does make my foundation last longer, and to some extent blurs and bumps/lines that i have for a soft focus effect which is really flattering. 
pair this with the hourglass skin tint and you will look FLAWLESS.

Bought to combat redness on face. Did a good job. I like the hourglass veil primer, and this was also a hit for me. A little goes a long way. I bought for a wedding, so I needed something that would hold up and last through the night. It held up well, photographed nicely, and stayed put through sweat. I would repurchase

This primer is amazing for oily skin types! This primer gives you glow without oil. I set my makeup with a Laura mercier setting powder and my skin looks so dull afterwards, so I added this primer into my routine and the combo is perfect for my long days. My aging skin loooks luminous, yet matte. Blending certain foundations can accentuate the fine facial hairs, so finding the right foundation to use may be challenging. I stick with bare minerals powder over this primer and it works well. Adding a touch of mood light powder makes the glow even more amazing just an fyi!

This is my new go-to primer! I try different brands and always went back to Benefit's Porefessional, until I tried this. It is a very lightweight primer. It does a great job at blurring imperfections, pores. Also, kept the shine at bay and foundation lasted all day and night! But, the best part is the radiance it creates. It's like a light from within. When friends, coworkers, family say your skin looks great, well, then you know a product is amazing. I will definitely be getting this again.

This primer evens out my skin tone with out have to put such a full coverage foundation on top! It smooths my skin out and corrects the discolored spots on my face! If you want something light weight, this is the product to grab!

This product is light and fluffy on my skin. It doesn’t make my makeup feel caked on and layered. I wear it on the nights I go out where I know I’ll potentially sweat and get shiny. I’d recommend it to everyone.

I am obsess with all the primers from hour glass and this product works wonders. I like how smooth this made my skin feel, and it lasted throughout the day with no problems. I would definitely purchase this again.

For this product the name doesn’t really explain what this primer does. It is applied after moisturizer to even out your skin tone. No, sun protection. This might be weird to say but the texture is ok not awful like other primers.

I was surprised by these. I didn’t expect much but it wasn’t the cheapest. I used it under my foundation and it did help and made my face look nicer. I can’t explain the outcome but I’m glad I kept this.

So I know they have different shades of these that are supposed to be correcting. But what do the different shades do? I'm trying to figure out what shade would be good for me

Recommendations on primers for combination skin? I received a sample of this but haven't read the best reviews. So any recommendations would be great! High end or drug store! (Ps I don't typically wear full face foundation so I don't need something that will make my foundation last.) TIA

Dies this primer really help your foundation to stay put all day? And does this help with dry skin?

I've been watching Hourglass for awhile, and have decided to treat myself. I'm interested in Mood Light but I'm afraid it might turn me orange with how pink it looks. Which shade of this primer would work best for NC20/25 skin with either cool yellow or olive undertones?
