Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Review from The Gossip Darling blog

Hourglass. Need I say more? I tried my first Hourglass product about two years ago and I have been a huge fan every since. Truly, I have never seen such great quality products. Everything from the box, to the packaging, to the actual product is the best of the best. Every single product I've tried has always been worth the money.

Sephora had their annual sale for VIB members and at Rogue level, I received 15% off my purchase. Since I was buying everything at a discounted rate, I decided to buy my regular beauty staples as well as some new products. One of the new products I picked up? Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer.

Simple put....Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer feels like pure magic. I am a girl obsessed with primers and I have tried dozens, never in my life have I felt a primer like this one. It's the most amazing quality and goes on soooo smoothly. The creamy white formula comes in a glass bottle with a pump which is so awesome because I pump twice and it's super fast to apply for a late girl every morning.

This extremely silky formula should be applied 15 minutes before you head out into the sun and you can reapply every two hours. With Summer approaching, it's very important to protect yourself from the sun. You should also use it with other sun protecting goodies. The formula isn't greasy or sticky at all and I apply it first and then continue on with my makeup routine. It's perfect for wearing under foundation and it keeps the oils off my face for the entire day. Currently, I am wearing Tarte's Amazonian Clay Foundation daily and these two are the perfect partnership. I don't have to touch up my My makeup needs to last 16 hours a day and I need to use only the best products. This primer...is one of the best. Wish this came in a body lotion!
