Hello babes,I come to you with a review of the hourglass mineral veil primer. Now, all over social media and with beauty gurus, this is a product MUST!! But, is it really. In America, this retails for 54$ with 1 fluid ounce.
YES ONLY 1 FOR 54 BUCKS!!
What it is
“An oil-free primer with a silky, airy texture that leaves a smooth canvas for makeup, while reducing the look of redness, pores, and wrinkles.” What it does: “With a texture unlike any other, this silky primer extends the wear of makeup while also concealing redness, minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and providing broad spectrum SPF 15 for a perfect complexion that lasts. It leaves a smooth, even surface so that foundation effortlessly glides on and stays put for all-day makeup wear. This unique primer has an airy, silky cloud-like texture and layers onto skin without added weight or a greasy after feel. It delivers Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sun protection with mineral-derived sunscreens. It’s ideal for all skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin, and it repels water so makeup stays looks freshly applied all day long”
What’s formulated WITHOUT:
Personal experience & Worries
My skin and primer experiences My skin is very oily, that’s sensitive, and acne prone!! Boy, I got issues… but primers and I don’t really see eye to eye. Many primers I’ve tried such as, the NYX face primer. Always break me out. Horribly. I could wear it for a few days and my skin freaks out. Plus they never seemed to keep oil of my nose! Mineral veil I was very excited when i received a birthday gift card from my mother for Sephora! I made a list of all the things I needed and what I wanted to try. I decided to try this product fist. I was worried about how my skin would react and the price, if I loved it, I would have to buy more!!!!
The real test & my final thoughts
The consistency of the primer looked thick but felt very thin and wearable. When i first applied it to my face, I was surprised on how lightweight it felt, it practically felt like I was wearing nothing!!
The real test was the test of time. Was it going to keep my oil at bay? Last all day? Break me out? In all honestly. I’M IN LOVE. The oil slick on my face was kept very matte all day. EVEN IN HUMID WEATHER! I wear it for 8 hours and my makeup stayed the same the whole time. Also, it NEVER broke me out. Not once, even to this day almost THREE MONTHS after i first purchased it, has it ever bothered my skin.
Was it worth the price? Completely.
