I love discovering new brands and their products. I've known about Hourglass Cosmetics for quite some time, but never had the opportunity to try any of their products. After hearing about so many celebrities wearing Hourglass top events, I knew this was a line I had to check out. I can't think of a better way to check out the line than with one of their best sellers, the Veil Mineral Primer.
Veil Mineral Primer is said to "neutralize redness, minimize the appearance of pores, help soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles and repel water to ensure makeup appears fresh all day long."
This primer is elegant upon first look. It comes housed in a beautiful frosted glass bottle with a bronzed colored cap that covers an airtight pump.
The primer itself feels very liquid, and not like most primers as it is pumped out. But as it applies, it starts to get that silicone-ish powdery type of feel to it as it seems to blur the skin and make it look simply beautiful. I love the silky feel and how it makes my foundation apply effortlessly and very even. Imperfections and fine lines are definitely burred. It also helps to make my foundation, and entire makeup, look great all day as it helps it last longer than without primer.
It is important to note that this also contains an SPF of 15 which is great for additional sun protection. It is a physical sunscreen, which is the type of sunscreen that reflects the sun off the skin, so I wouldn't wear this if I knew I would be having my picture taken.
