Hour Glass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 Review

Hi Beauties!
I have a fabulous primer to share with you, Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15!  It’s a primer from Hourglass’s permanent line that I was introduced to recently while looking for new products to try at Sephora.  The primer is vegan, and does not include oil, parabens, sulfates, fragrances, or dyes.  It's sun protection is derived from titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which are considered to be the most gentle and effective broad-spectrum SPF options for the skin.  To be honest I have tried a few other primers out there, and while these other primers are good, they just did not work as well and feel as smooth on the skin as the Hourglass Veil.

Many primers can feel heavy and thick.  The light feeling of this veil absorbs nicely and doesn’t feel like it’s just caked on the skin.  This Veil really absorbs the oil up on the forehead, nose and chin, which really helps to reduce the shine!  It softens the appearance of fine lines and pores and has not made my skin breakout!  

I absolutely love the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and it should be a product thats in everyone's makeup bag!  You can purchase this primer at Sephora stores and Sephora.com, or you can purchase it directly from Hourglasscosmetics.  Sephora sells a smaller size 0.33-ounce for $17.00 if you would like to give it a try before spending the money on a larger size. The price for a full size 1-ounce bottle is $52.00.

Disclaimer~ I was not given this product by Hourglass, nor have I been compensated to do this review.  I purchased this product on my own and all opinions are my own.
