Makeup Review: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

I told you I would be back today!!!!! To be fair....I'm writing this two minutes after yesterdays post went up....sorry not sorry. Like I promised, another review of the new primer!

So after I got the Kat Von D Primer and Liquid Foundation, I went back two weeks later to Sephora to grab the Powder Foundation and had enough points to get a couple of the trial sizes of the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer just to give it a try. I had heard that anything that goes on top of it becomes waterproof and just have heard amazing things about this primer, so I wanted to give it a shot. Within two days of having it, the waterproof aspect was put to the test! I got water AND hair color on my face and my makeup did not budge! Already massively impressed! What really sold me on this amazing primer was the following story!

So I decided to leave my house 10 minutes earlier than normal to beat traffic I was sure to have on the way to work considering the Pope is in town, so I packed up all my eye makeup and lipstick stuff, checked my face one more time just in case I needed to blend some more of the blush or bronzer, and left my house. I got halfway down the toll road in no traffic when I realized that I had forgotten one massively important thing.....my eye primer! *GASP* Now as I suffer from extremely oily eyelids in the first place....this distressed me greatly! I just KNEW my eyeshadow was going to crease almost the moment I put it on! I prayed to the collective gods of makeup hoping that the Hourglass Primer and the Kat Von D Primer/Foundation mix would be more than enough to get me through the work day! I got to work and did my eye makeup with very little hope for the future and went into work. I avoided all mirrors until I had to touch up my lipstick after lunch. I put on a brave face and moved my pocket mirror up to check my eyelids, with little hope. What I saw was shocking though! My eyeshadow hadn't budged! It hadn't moved an inch! It looked just as perfect as when I put it on! That is the was it stayed until I got home around 7 that evening! It had JUST begun to get slightly oily when I got home, but still looked good! I was SO amazingly happy! Still am! So, as expensive as this stuff is....it is well worth the buy! You can find it at Sephora if you are looking for a new primer and I will list the prices below for each size!

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer:

0.33 oz: $18

1 oz: $52

2 oz: $72

Like I said...they are a bit pricey, but well worth the money!
