I will spare you of the usual talk about how amazing and important I think primers are and instead, I am going to explain why the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is my favourite one, ever.
This product is simply amazing: it delivers in every point you want ticked by a primer.
Upon application, skin feels very velvety and more even, in colour and texture. It absorbs quickly and also aids other product application as it creates such a smooth base.
The finish it delivers is outstanding – skin looks more even, brighter and more radiant than if I hadn’t primed with this gem, it does create a fantastic photo-finish.
It is also water-repellent, so it makes makeup more resistant to sweat. For that, holding power is also exceptional.
Its texture is great, very light and silky, and contains SPF 15 with mineral-derived sunscreens (Titanium and Zinc Oxide).
The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is also free from parabens, fragrances, sulphates, nanoparticles, oil, phthalates, gluten, synthetic dyes and is also vegan-friendly and not tested on animals.
Now, nothing is perfect… this is quite pricey. So much I usually buy the handbag size every time, as I struggle to part with £52 for 30ml. The pictured smaller vial costs £20 for 10ml.
I wear other great primers on a daily basis, leaving the Veil for nights/days out or when I go on holidays.
In all honesty, I do think it is well worth its price tag.
