nice !...I like...the problems is the next morning my face was irritated :( and it has broken-out, I though well maybe it is due to something else, and I tried this primer again a few days later after my skin recovered a little bit... the next morning same thing :( If you do not have sensitive skin, I recommend this product because it really does wonders to the way make-up looks and lasts... I am still in search of a primer that won't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin!!!...This product was ok....I honestly didn't notice that much of a difference if I used a really good moisturizer or a tinted moisturizer instead of the primer I felt the make up looked and lasted about the same.

I love...It's ok...I thought I wasted money because it didn't work.WELL, after a while using it, I learnt the way I put it on wasn't working out for me.Therefore, after I done all my makeup, I got a clean foundation brush and put some on it and applied it like my foundation....My only issue is that even if I use a tiny bit, I find that as I'm applying my foundation it tends to roll up and I constantly have to clean my brush between drops of foundation, I find this really odd and a little tint consuming but otherwise works great.

N love...Love it...I wouldn't say it's a miracle in a bottle as far as evening out skin tone, hiding flaws or concealing but anything that can help keep my oily skin a little less oily without causing any breakouts OR increasing oiliness is a good thing so I use it on occasions when I need/want that extra matte look for as long as possible....When I picked this up, I was like no, I did not just buy a 2 once primer for $72,I really wanted to hate it so I would have a reason to return it and said I would give it a couple days to make a final decision.

"Before I developed Veil Mineral Primer, I wasn’t a big fan of using makeup primers. They always felt like an extra and unnecessary step in your makeup regimen. But then I started working with a chemist on the idea of a next generation primer, and, after numerous incarnations, we came up with Veil. It was unlike any other primer I had seen—it was silky in texture, it concealed redness, it repelled water so your foundation lasts longer, and it had an SPF. I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder
