Product RAVE // Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer

 Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer
I adore this product. 

I brought a mini of the Hourglass mineral veil primer from Space NK a while back and had forgotten about it completely, then when I came out to Australia I brought it with me. Since then I've used it for every special occassion and evenings out. I was attempting to draw out its lifespan by using it sparingly but once it was gone, I definitely missed it from my make up routine so I had to invest in a full size version. I found it on the Mecca make up website for $79, but if you're in the UK this will set you back £52 for a 30ml bottle. If you've seen my haul posts on Instagram or my blog in the past, you'll know I can't lie when I say I'm an addict to high end brands, but I really do believe it's worth investing in a few quality products to build your make up bag around. A good primer, foundation, concealer and mascara.
The packaging of all Hourglass products are chic, expensive and eye catching, with their simplistic design, even their mineral veil comes in a heavy glass bottle with a pump - I know some people look at glass packaging as a disadvantage, but I've never had an issue even when travelling. I use a single pump to cover my whole face and it comes out white, but blends in to nothing yet leaves your skin feeling like velvet. It's mineral based, water resistant, oil free and boasts an SPF of 15 whilst eliminating redness, minimising pores, softening fine lines and creating a flawless base for make up application. This leaves my face looking refreshed and almost as if you've used a soft focus tool on your skin. I find it makes applying my foundation and concealer such an easy task and things just blend so effortlessly. I won't lie and say this keeps my oily skin shine free all day, it definitely does prolong the wear of my base products but it is 32 degrees out here most days recently and if I didn't have a little bit of oil production it would mean I wasn't perspiring at all, which would be dreamy but unrealistic, haha. Not only can you use this as a primer, it can also just be worn alone as a light sun protectant and to help achieve flawless skin without actually applying tinted products. 
What else can I say? You need it, buy the mini if you're wary and thank me after.

2 beauty obsessed ladies have an opinion...:

  1. Great post, I absolutely love this and it's the only primer I've found that agrees with my skin, usually they're silicone in texture and make my skin feel horrid. Lovely to see you blogging again :)
