I'm always looking for new skin primers to try~ I was happy to receive a sample of Hourglass' Veil Mineral Primer with a recent Sephora order!
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
"A mineral-based, water-resistant primer with SPF 15 that neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine, and creates a smooth, uniform canvas for flawless makeup application."
This is a slightly opaque white formula that applies semi-sheer but leaves my skin looking really white, pale, and washed out. There's no way that I would be able to wear this alone, like the product description claims you can.
It leaves skin feeling slick & slippery, making it a little difficult to apply makeup over it. I didn't notice any change in the appearance of my pores, however it did assist my makeup in concealing redness & blemishes.
Doesn't really hold my makeup in place or keep it from fading, and by the end of 8 hours my skin is just as oily as usual.
Maybe this has better results when used with mineral powder foundations (which I don't use), and it may also be better for people with dry skin (which I don't have). For me, it had neither a positive or negative effect on my skin. I'm skipping this one!
