Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer


This has been at the top of the Sephora best sellers page for a good long while now, and it doesn’t seem to be leaving any time soon. Hourglass has blown up over the past year or so, becoming the new go-to luxury indulgence. This primer has gained a devoted cult following because of how airbrushed it is supposed to make your skin look under whatever foundation you choose. I picked this up about a year ago because I had to see for myself if it was as amazing as it was made out to be.

While I for me, this turned out to be a really great product, I don’t think it is nearly as universal as people think. If you have any dry patches, this will cling to them in a pretty noticeable way. This definitely did make my make up last all day, but I had to combine it with a mattifying primer to keep my shine at bay. This did a good job of blurring the large pores around my nose, and a lot of my foundations sats really beautifully on top of this.



This is a very steep price to pay for a primer, and I don’t see myself repurchasing this any time soon. I liked the effect it had, but it did not feel worth the ridiculous price tag to me.

Product Amount

1 oz

Standard amount of product, but too little for the high price, in my opinion.

Let me know your favorite high-end face primer, and why you think it’s worth the money! Also, if you have tried this primer out, let me know your thoughts!

Glowingly yours,
