One of the most useful and beautiful makeup products I have tried, lately is the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. I have been curious about this primer for a long time and I decided to buy the snack sized version, 0.33 oz. for $18.00 so that I could test drive it, see if I liked it and wanted to invest in the full size.
Packaged in a simple, frosted glass bottle with a black pump and cap, this mini is surprisingly elegant in it's appearance.
This lovely, silky formula smooths the skin, softens and diffuses fine lines, blurs imperfections, helps to minimize pores and provides some UV protection (a little bit... this is not an excuse to skip your hardcore sunscreen, gentle reader), thanks to it's chemical free SPF 15. A little bit goes a long way and I'm getting a lot of use out of my small size bottle. This primer locks my foundation or CC cream down all day long and, even tho it is meant to be mattifying, I don't find it to be drying. I also love to mix this primer with Cover FX Custom Cover Drops to make my own very lightweight, custom foundation.
Beauty Blogger Math Ahead:
I like this primer so much and I am planning to buy a full size, very soon. The one ounce bottle is $52.00. The two ounce jumbo sized tube is $72.00. That might sound like a lot of money and it is, but when you think about it... If you're going to buy this stuff on the regular, you're better off buying the jumbo size and saving some money. Two one ounce bottles will set you back $104.00. Buying the jumbo size two ounce tube for $72.00 will save you $32.00. That's an eye shadow palette or a foundation or a luxury lipstick...
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is cruelty free, from reading the ingredients list seems to be vegan and is gluten free.
