Today I'm going to share my review for the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. I've been sitting on this review since last November when I purchased this at the VIB sale. I have really bad luck with primers and the only one that seemed to work for me was the Benefit Porefessional. I knew during the VIB sale that the mineral veil was one thing that I wanted to try despite the horrendous price. I didn't care because well it was 20% off. Now I'm shaking my head at the price, even discounted.
This retails for $52 (1 oz) so I got 20% off. I'm bad at math so you can figure out how much I paid if you want ha ha.
I really wanted to buy the small size, which was .33 oz for $18 and I let the sales lady talk me out of it. Which, it is a better deal for the larger one if you like the primer.
Here's what it looks like. And here's my first complaint. When I first got it it was a thicker formula and felt very creamy. Now it's super watery as you can see from the first picture. Sometimes when I shake it up it gets thicker but doesn't stay that way, and sometimes it's still watery when I shake it.
My overall thoughts
-This doesn't irritate my skin or break it out like most primers do so that is the good thing. I do like the packaging too, it's really nice.
-It applies nice to the skin and feels silky. You need very little to cover your face, so it will last a long time. These are the two reasons I bought this product.
-As I mentioned above, it's super watery. It was good at first but I don't know what happened.
-I do not think this primer is worth $52. Or ever what I paid for it with the discount.
-I don't hate this but I don't love it either. I'm only using it because it was so damn expensive. I wouldn't purchase this again.
If you want to try this out, get a sample first or go for the smaller size if you don't mind spending $18!
