FAUX PRODUCT REVIEW 13: VEIL MINERAL PRIMER

I did not like Black Up’s Perfect Mattifying Primer. In addition to it’s questionable ownership, light formula and crappy pump, I still don’t know if it’s effective. I went through just half of the jar when I tossed it out due to the pump no longer working. I got tired of scooping it out. Would you ask Beyonce, Michelle Obama or NeNe Leaks to scoop out their primer? Then DON’T ask me!

While restocking on other items (Sugar Advance Therapy Lip and De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray), I asked the Sephora Beauty Advisor for recommendations.  She recommended Hourglass’s Veil Mineral Primer which I was familiar with because my Mom had been using it for the last few months. According to Mom, it did what it was supposed to but she would rather use some old people’s primer sold on a home shopping network.

This clean, satin-finish formula helps keep makeup looking fresh and prevents fading. Veil Mineral Primer also absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light to help hide and soften the look of skin imperfections and fine lines.

Not that you care but it’s free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. The formula is really light and I don’t like that. I like to feel like I’m spreading cake batter on my face. Just as Mom stated, it appears to do what it’s expected to; plus, it’s offered in a sample size for 18 bucks. There’s not much of a risk. Read better reviews and shop here.
