    Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Reviews

    Love this primer. It never lets me down even when experiencing "glowing" moments. Just need a small amount so although on the higher price range lasts a long time.
    I adore this primer, I received a sample in a previous buy and fell in love. It’s perfect. So lightweight and my make up glides on. It also protects my skin from the sun and keeps my make up in place all day. Buy! You won’t regret it :)
    A bit disappointing
    Maybe my expectations were too high after seeing all the raging reviews, but this does not impress me. Yes, it does make the skin look a bit smoother, but I have to be very careful about choosing the product I will use this with because I often experience pilling and it needs a lot of time to set before I can apply foundation on top of it. Therefore, I rarely use it because the results are not worth the time and energy required to make it work.
    Best Primer 2020
    Has kept my make up in place during this unbearable, tortuous, hellish, ice cream scoffing, mind melting heatwave. It really works.
    Quite terrible
    If you want to fight with your foundation-go with this primer. Seriously, it doesn't allow the foundation to spread evenly...
    Not too sure.
    This primer is not for me. I tried it both with skincare and without skincare (serum/moisturiser beforehand) but not too pleased with either results. I found it to have a white cast, which obviously would cover with foundation but still not a fan. I also felt it cling to dry patches even with moisturiser underneath. On the plus side, considering this is quite a pricey primer, I think a little goes a very long way!
    Love this primer
    My holy grail primer. I use it every day.
    My go to
    Been using this primer for 4 years now, it does not break me out, and I find it so smooth and silky, it sits so well on the skin and helps my foundation look much more even. I have oily skin though and this doesn't do much to matify, or keep my foundation from slipping off if I sweat for that I need powder and a fixer, but non the less it's a lovely product.
    I bought this primer after Liz Jones raved about it in her column in the Mail on Sunday. I just love it as it suits my combination skin. I have recently re-ordered it and will continue to use it.
    Best primer for my oily textured face
    My HG! This primer makes my skin look so smooth and almost perfect, keeps my make up look fresh all day. Every foundation applies perfectly.
    Good primer!
    Really nice primer! Blurs out my pores without looking heavy and keeps my makeup in place looking good for a long time!
    Great texture
    These feel gorgeous going on but I found my powder blush still disappeared off my face after a few hours. However as I have dry skin, I feel I probably should have got the other primer that they do (which I didn't see until now). My mum and sister have oily/combination skin and this works much better for them. Really pleased they offer a travel size to trial first - I think it's definitely worth giving a go. I'll still use it for day to day, just need something more pungent for longer days or nights out.
    An amazing primer !
    One of the best primer I’ve ever used.
    Best primer for special occasions
    This is an awesome primer, keep it matte but still luminous and fresh all day. Totally recommend
    Great for problematic, congested skin
    I love this. I bought the travel size and so far it's lasted me a month with everyday use and there is still plenty left. I honestly don't have any experience with primers but I love using this under makeup as it makes it last a full 12 hours, even the cheapest foundation I own applies and lasts way way better with this! I also love wearing it on its own as sunscreen when I don't want to wear makeup and it keeps my oily skin at bay super well, plus gives a fresh matte finish. I would 100% recommend this if you're looking for a cruelty-free, glass-packaged primer!
    Не знаю зачем она мне
    База очень нравится, хотя у меня жирная кожа. База подсвечивает кожу и делает её шелковистой. Жизнь макияжу не продлевает. Красивая игрушка, но покупку всё же повторю. ***I really like the base, although I have oily skin. The base highlights the skin and makes it silky. Makeup life does not extend. Beautiful primer, would still repeat the purchase.
    dosn't work for large pores
    Texture is great and soft. It will be great for normal skin type, but doesn't enough for who's got large pores. I prefer Benefit's primer than this one.
    Love this
    I have combo acne prone skin and I wanted a primer for my T-zone... This stuff is fantastic.
    I actually tried this primer with the stick foundation from the same brand at Sephora and it worked beautifully on my combo skin. I have pores around my nose and under eye, and it really covered them. But it was out stock that time, I found Cult Beauty website and finally bought it!
    Super recommendable
    Mi experiancia con este producto ha sido increíble. A mi tipo de piel q es mixta le va genial, la hidrata y me aguanta bien los brillos con cualquier base, bueno menos con las bbcream y cccream. Saludos. ***My experience with this product has been incredible. For my mixed skin type, it's great. It moisturises and controls shine with a base on top, well at least with the BB and CC creams.
    Perfect for pores and oily T-zone
    Really good primer..keeps my pores area matte all day long. If you are looking for an all over primer you should definetly try the Farsali Unicorn Essence.
    Really worked
    I’d heard positive reviews in online beauty forums and YT vlogs, so decided to invest in the travel size and was not disappointed. This primer works well for oily skin. I was impressed at how well it worked in combination with the primer-translucent powder-foundation-translucent powder makeup hack. A little goes a long way and results were best when the product was patted onto skin, rather than rubbed in like lotion. I didn’t need to blot at all after 7-8 hours and although there was a little oil peeking through on the nose area at the end of the day, my makeup still looked good with a subtle natural glow, as opposed to an oil slick. I deducted a star because of the price of the primer, especially the regular size, which is very pricey compared to other high end primers of a similar quality and quantity. The primer also leaves a noticeable white cast on darker skin tones, however it disappears once foundation and setting powder is applied.
    Nothing great
    I don't see anything effective about this very pricey product. It balls up on dry and moisturized skin both.
    Love but left disappointed
    I love this primer so much I haven’t used it for a few weeks as I have been trying a new one out and wanted to make sure I had the hourglass primer for some upcoming weddings, however with the hot weather my room is really warm, half a bottle of primer I had left has evaporated I’m so shocked for the price that this has happened, for £55 I only got to use half of it. I may just purchase the smaller bottles in future so I go though it quicker but I’ve only had it 6 months and it says 18 months on the bottle.
    Pricey but lovely!
    Makeup sits really well over this primer and I was surprised at how good it smoothes the face for foundation application. The only downside that it's quite expensive but it's still worth it!
    I’m loving it so far!
    I have VERYY oily skin and this helps with keeping my makeup on for a fair amount of the day. I use an oil-free moisturiser before putting this on. It glides on well into the skin and helps to “blur” the pores/ imperfections before applying my oil-free foundation. Be careful not to apply too much as I've found it can pill. I do also use the de slick Urban Decay setting spray to help.
    Magic primer
    I read mixed reviews and decided to give it go. Bought a small size to try along with Becca primer. Tried both on 4 separate occasions and Hourglass Veil was a woooooowwwww whereas Becca was a thumb down. My skin is your typical combination skin type, oily in the T zone and normal on the cheeks. So I only used Veil on the Tzone. I applied it with the hourglass foundation brush. It was so easy to glide on and absorbed quickly. It worked very well with three brands of foundation I used, Ester Lauder double wear, Huda Beauty and Illamasqua. It holds the shine so well, definitely delivered my expectation. I can honestly say I never thought anything could control the oil in my tzone but this really does the trick. I feel so much more confident with the longevity of my makeup and no longer worry about it melting in the tzone half way through the day.
    The best.
    Holy grail product!
    So I have tried everything out there primer wise, I saw this in a review on YouTube so I thought I’d give it a go and got the smallest bottle. Wellll.. it’s the best i've ever used I have extremely oily skin and this kept the shine at bay from 7am until 9pm-ish when I take my make up off. Some days I do however just quickly press a powder brush over my tea zone where I’m at my worst with oils if I’m going out for dinner in the evening and it does the trick and holds for a good few more hours. Also the smallest bottle has lasted me 3 months and i've only just started to run out And I use it everyday so have ordered again! Will never be without now!!
    Very Good
    Good product and I have normal skin and have used it everywhere and makeup stays on all day!
    Love it
    Such a good product! Feels great on my skin and lasts all day,
    Glad I got the travel size
    It is a good primer for the T zone, with a slight silicone feeling that fills-in pores. I would not recommend to use it all over the face, in fact, I would recommend to use a very small amount and tap it in, otherwise it will make your foundation slip all over after 1-2 hours. Since it does have shelf-life, thus, I would not recommend the small version. And since it is tricky to work with I would say it is an ok primer, not a great one.
    Once you put it on your face, it feels powdery, but if you give it a minute, your skin absorbs the primer and it just feels so smooth. I have an oily t-zone and this primer prevents my face from getting oily. It's so good, i layer it over my moisturizer as a sunscreen and I'm good to go. Will definitely buy again.
    best primer
    Best primer for oily skin, smooth and shine free!
    No. 1
    No matter what primer I use, I always seem to come back to this. I’m somehow on my 2nd jumbo size bottle now! For reference I have normal to oily skin, for me this pairs well the NARS Sheer Glow, Giorgio Armani Power Fabric and Beauty Blender Bounce foundations. I do however like to try new primers all the time but this will always be in my arsenal.
    Amazing for oily and dry skin
    That’s all. Pure perfection for me. Smooth, nourishing, pleasant, keeps makeup safe and secure. You’re in good hands with this one
    Primer perfection!
    I'm combo skin and this quite literally puts a veil over your skin. Super lightweight and silky soft! A must if you want a perfect canvas for applying make-up. This definitely has a matte finish and blurs imperfections perfectly.
    Never fails!
    My go to... never try anything else this is just so good. Either under makeup or on its own, the finish and glow are 10/10
    Best primer for oily skin
    I only purchased the travel size to test it out. I cannot find any primer that actually works on my very oily skin. This does. The only thing is that I cannot apply it over my sunscreen as it reacts and starts coming off. So now I just apply my sunscreen after the primer and it works 100%. Best solution to stay matte all day.
    Chalky film - avoid if dark to mid skin tone
    Takes a while to sink into skin. Definitely for pale skin tones so do not waste your money if you are anything other than light. I would advise the company to keep in mind the beautiful breadth of black skin tones when creating products in the future.
    Love this
    I have tried lots of different primers as a base to cover the large pores around my nose and cheeks without upsetting my sensitive/acne prone skin and couldn't find anything, until I found this! I love it. It's undetectable on the skin and goes a long way to even the skin, even before putting make up on top. The travel size lasts me around 1.5 months. Love it!
    Average at best
    Bought this due to a few bloggers and YouTubers going on about how good it was. I did see a few bad reviews, but I did want to try it for myself. I wish I did listen to the bad reviews because I could have saved myself a bit of money, however I did only buy the travel sized one. It just did not work for me. It leaves a white film over my face and it did nothing for my black heads or pores. I thought it might have made them a bit better but it did not. Also, it does not create a good base for foundation. It’s so silky and smooth that foundation does not even stick to it. If you do not have oily skin or do not have black or white heads etc, then it might work for you. However, a friend of mine tried it and she has dry skin and it did not work for her either! Hopefully this will save someone making the same mistake I did. I do like that it came in a glass bottle though :-).
    El mejor primer que he probado hasta ahora. Deja un velo en la piel increíble. *** The best primer I've tasted so far. Leaves an incredible veil on the skin.
    Really dry, leaves a white cast, I got rid of it. Lucky I got the travel size and not the full size. Every other hourglass product I tried was amazing.
    Perfect Primer
    I have tried various primers and never feel satisfied with them. This one is the one! It's perfect. The texture is initially surprising as looks like a fairly thick cream but it sinks in wonderfully giving a perfect base. You could wear on its own. However, once the liquid foundation is added the effect is perfect. Foundation stays in place and leaves no shine. Its the perfect primer. I bought the travel size but will buy the largest next time.
    Just Awesome
    This is the only primer you will ever need. Just fabulous. I'm not sure it does much for my pores but is pleasant to apply and leaves a perfectly smooth base for getting the best out of your foundation.
    I LOVE this primer. It is my absolute favourite. You only need a small amount for your face - minimises the appearance of pores and leaves your face smooth and ready for applying foundation. My makeup lasts all day using this I love it :)
    This product is nice but it’s very pricey. It doesn’t prolong your makeup by a lot more. It does create a smooth canvas and it’s not heavy, but just that. Not a must have in my opinion.
