Things I Love: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

By Glinda

One of the things I hate most about my oily skin is that makeup tends to, ahem, slide a bit by the end of the day.  What started out perfect in the morning looks streaky by midday and might as well not even be there by evening.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to the rescue.

I had doubts about this product, to be sure.  I had doubts that it was better than Make Up For Ever’s primer, which is mighty popular.

But I’m going to say that despite the high price tag, it is worth it.  And better than MUFE.  Because if I total up the amount of product I put on my face that has pulled a vanishing act by the time lunch hits, then it’s worth it to spend some money on making sure all of it stays there.  And a little goes a long way.

It goes on like buttah, and your skin feels lovely and silky.  It helps to control shine, and even has an SPF 15 built in.  If you are someone who likes to still look like you have makeup on at the end of the day without reapplying, this product is for you.

    I have horribly oily skin and have used a lot of different primers, but not this one. For no color, I prefer DHC’s Velvet Skin Coat, and for a primer with a little bit of color, Clinique’s Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector. These two provide the most coverage and oil-blotting properties of any of the primers I’ve used.

    Can’t wait to give this one a shot!
