It's without reason why this Veil MIneral Primer from Hourglass is the Winner of the InStyle Best Beauty Buy award for Best Primer for 2014, 2015 and 2016. This mineral-based, water-resistant primer neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine, and creates a smooth and uniform prep for a flawless makeup application. It's weightless, satin finish formula does more than any other primer does by concealing redness (even rosacea), hides visible pores, fine lines and wrinkles and doesn't leave that tacky feling. It also contains SPF 15 with minerals, Titanium and Zinc Oxide.
A little goes a long way, I use a small amount, 1 1/2 pumps and I get good coverage. It feels super light on my skin and evens out my combination skin complexion. It really does extend the foundation longevity from cream, liquid or powder and keeps my skin matte all day without the dried or faded look. I do suggest to shake the primer well before use as it does seem to settle if not used regularly.
Like all primers, always make sure to apply to clean, moisturized skin for optimal effect.
