Review: Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

Hey girls! Today I’ll be reviewing the Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15. It basically a mineral based primer without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic dyes and fragrances and sulfates. It retails for $52 from,, Sephora stores, and other various boutiques. You get 1 oz. of product.

-Very moisturizing and doesn’t grease up my face.
-Prevents my foundation from oxidizing and helps it lasts at least 7 hours.
-Conveniently packaged in a frosted glass, pump vial.
-Its water resistant and a little bit goes a long way.
-It mattifes my skin instantly and fills in fine lines.

-Weird blue undertone.
-Expensive for a little bit of product.

Overall review: I just love this product. It’s the best primer I’ve ever tried. There is really nothing bad about it. There’s everything in this product that you would want from a primer except for its cost and the weird blue undertone you get when you blend it in. I think it’s there to neutralize any dullness or redness from your skin tone and just create a flawless looking face for foundation application. It helps my blush last really long and that’s what I absolutely love about it. In the picture you cannot see the blue undertone. Actually it not that bad once you blend it out. The thing that actually bothers me is its price. I know that I wouldn’t be able to live with myself knowing that I bought a $52 primer. I still would’ve understood if it was a foundation but a PRIMER! Well, overall I love it and I suggest buying it because you don’t really need that much to do your entre face. A little bit will last you a really long time.

Rating: 9.5/10
