Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Review & Swatches

Hi Beauties,
 You know when you think you have all your makeup figured out & you know exactly what works for you, then something turns your world upside down? Well that is exactly how I feel about Hourglass . I believe everything happens for a reason!
  A few weeks ago I went to a Make Up For Ever event at their makeup studio located inside Sephora in SoHo where I was treated, for lack of a better word, like garbage. I was not going to give my $$$ to MUFE after the way I was treated so I walked a few steps over to Sephora where I met Katie. I discussed with her my makeup likes & dislikes. She asked if I had tried Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, I told her no & she said she wanted to introduce me to it. She said she absolutely loved it! She brought me over to the Sephora Makeup Studio & offered to do my makeup.
 When I saw the white primer, I was a little apprehensive. I have tried other brand white primers that make my tan skin look washed out. This does not produce that result. At first when she applied it, I could not believe I had primer on. My skin felt light as air. None of that heavy, cloggy feel, just a light, cool feel. I looked in the mirror & my skin was glowing. I looked refreshed & rejuvenated. It did not affect my skintone in any way. I knew right then I was introduced to the most amazing primer ever! She did my makeup & everything looked so beautiful. I wore it for about 13 hours that day & my makeup did not budge!
 I love when by chance, wonderful things are discovered! When I got home I looked up Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer on Sephora's website.  I found out that it is 100% fragrance, oil & gluten free, it's waterproof, contains spf 15 & is mineral based. How awesome is that? It also absorbs excess oil & has light distributing properties that help hide the appearance of lines, pores & imperfections. I mean seriously, what else can you want from a primer??

In the photo below, I applied my foundation over Hourglass (on the left) and over the Other Brand (on the right). I immediately noticed how much the Other Brand primer altered the color of my foundation. I applied the same amount of foundation with the same brush & got 2 completely different results. The foundation over Hourglass  looks natural like a better version of my skin. Natural & glowing! With the Other Brand you can clearly see how off the color is and if you click on the photo & zoom it in, you can see how streaky the Other Brand makes my foundation look.

 Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is a must have for every one's makeup case. Whether you are a mom or a makeup artist, this is one product you should not go without. You can purchase this primer at Sephora stores & Sephora online by clicking here or you can purchase it directly from Hourglass by clicking here! The .33 oz is $17 and the 1 oz is $52. A little goes a long way so one to two pumps is more than enough for each application.

Love & Sparkles.
