I like...my fav...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!!!...My only complaint is that it claims to "combat flaky dryness," but when I'm very dry I can not use this product, as it somehow makes me look even more flaky, but I have found that to be true with any primer I use.

"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
