- "i got this in my allure beauty box this month and i have been holding off on buying it since i knew the sample was coming. i applied my moisturizer and the primer after, it was ok. i guess i just thought it would ben more hydrating, i in ny so the harsh winter my skin can always use hydration. i will continue to use and finish the bottle , then decide my final thoughts. so after using it for a few weeks, i absolutely love this primer, i think i wasn’t applying enough in the beginning which was making me feel like my skin was dry. it calms the redness in my skin and makes my makeup application go in perfectly. it comes with a spatula which i like do you can dolly the product where you need it and evenly. plus i love the fact it has spf in it as well, sun protection for me is number one. i only took away one star because of the price, for the regular size it $58, maybe i’ll splurge and buy it i guess l decide when the bottle is all gon." in 140 reviews
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is in the top tier, though. This is NOT like a slippery gel primer, such as Smashbox--it's a creamy-textured white liquid, which is quite similar to Chanel "Le Blanc de Chanel." It DOES seem to meld with your skin very well. The primer feels more like a lotion than an thick layer of frosting (looking at you, Benefit!), and it noticeably helps makeup "stick" to you better. But the downside to the thinner texture is that it doesn't do anything to fill in pores, scars, fine lines, etc. That's not entirely a bad thing---sometimes you need a lightweight option in situations where it would look weird to show up with a poreless face full of makeup, but you still want to give yourself some "oomph" (e.g. summer festivals, going to the gym, camping....etc)
The other downside is the sky-high price, which is equivalent to Chanel. So is it worth it? It depends. For me, it's not a life-changing product, but it IS a very nice luxury. If you prefer a lightweight primer without the slipperiness of a gel, and you don't have big pores, scars, or flakes, this is probably ideal for you.
(I've attached a photo showing the Hourglass Veil under my Shiseido BB----as you can see, my skin looks glowy and nice, BUT you can still make out all my pores, scars... and flaking around my nose from an aggressive sneezing attack!)
