Why people love it
  • It goes on so velvetty and smooth; feels like satin
  • Holds makeup in place for up to 8 hours
  • Leaves behind a dewy, matte finish

Not for those with dry skin. 


Who's it for? This makeup primer is ideal for most skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin. Because this formula is oil-free, it's the best choice for those of you with oily skin.

What it does: The words “mineral” and “paraben-free” caught our attention immediately on this primer. This silky primer not only makes your makeup last, but also conceals redness, minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and provides SPF 15. Now, that's impressive. The velvetty formula feels like satin on your skin and leaves behind a dewy, oil-free glow. Fair warning though, if you don't have oily skin, this may dry your skin out. But if you do have super oily skin, your natural oils will mix with this primer to make your skin look natural and beautiful.

Price: Unfortunately, the price of this makeup primer is on the higher end. The standard 1-ounce bottle is $54, ouch. The good news is, Hourglass offers two additional sizes. The .31 ounce bottle is only $19, which is great if you want to try this stuff out. And, the 2-ounce bottle is $75, which saves you money in the long run.

Our favorite products are the ones where a little goes a long way (mostly because it saves us money). And the Veil Mineral Primer is another one of those life savers. Only a small amount is needed for each use, making the bottle last for quite a long time.
