I think I’ve found my ultimate beauty product (very bold statement), if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I’ve been tweeting about this product all week. I recently attended a Space NK event and became aware of the brand Hourglass – they have so many incredible products, wonder products which solve all and make you look and feel amazing, that I’m surprised I’ve never bought anything from the brand before.
I played around with the Veil primer on my hand and liked the feel of it, and I discovered a sample size (5ml) at the bottom of my goody bag a few days later. Cue much excitement.
I’ve been loyal to Benefits Pore-fessional for some time now, but this has without a doubt superseded that and become my instant favourite. After first use of the Veil primer I was hooked. It smoothed over my skin and created the most flawless base for my makeup. After getting through two tubes of Pore-fessional, I was sure I was faithful but I know now that my heart belongs to Hourglass.
Veil is a satin-finish, mineral primer which smooths over skin, minimises pores and helps to keep foundation in place for longer while also keeping shine at bay. Nothing new there, as you’ll know if you’ve used a primer before, but this formula is like nothing else. My skin is instantly smoother and naturally flawless and my foundation sits so well, lasting longer and staying shine-free. I do still have the odd blemish here and there, but it’s a massive improvement and I can’t believe how well my foundation applies and how flawless my skin looks after I’ve applied this.
I can’t express my love for this product enough, it’s heavenly and has really improved my overall complexion and how I feel about my skin.
The price isn’t so delightful and I’m not sure if I will be able to keep up this habit. I’m definitely going to purchase at least a Travel Size (10ml) and see how I get on, as you only need a small amount of primer so it should go far!
