It's Ok...No joke...I love KVD products but I do have both smokey and skin eye primers but I would recommend them as bases not primers but they are fab for primers for me they work better as bases but still I love them!!!...I found out how strong this stuff really is when I wore it to a concert, I became drenched halfway through the show and by the time I got home there wasnt a smudge or crease in sight after hours of sweating and getting soaked my colour was still holding and as vibrant as when I put it on hours before.

A lightweight, non-greasy, non-sticky formula that sets the stage for perfect, lasting eye-makeup application.

Micro-encapsulated pigments float over the eye area, finessing skin texture and blurring fine lines. Use the Smoky shade to prep your lids for a smoldering smoky-eye look.

The silky, weightless texture smooths and evens out the skin for perfect application and wear every time. It’s the one product that will elevate your foundation to unprecedented performance.

"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

It's ok...Not bad...I have super oily and acne-prone skin....I read on a blog or in a magazine this was a great product and honestly I don't see how it keeps makeup on longer or how it protects skin from makeup anymore than a foundation would.
What it is:
A lightweight, creamy gel that creates an invisible barrier between skin and makeup to prime your face for color.

What it does:
Worn under foundation, this oil-free Primer creates a smooth, flawless canvas for application, allowing foundation to glide on easily and stay fresh and color-true for hours. Ideal for oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin types, it helps mattify and control oil. It’s the first step to Laura’s “Flawless Face.” This dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic product contains the antioxidant green tea extract; vitamins A, C, and E; and cucumber that helps sooth and refresh the skin.

What else you need to know:
Just as a painter primes a canvas, Foundation Primer—the original—was created by Laura Mercier in 1995 to prime the skin. After creating the industry’s first primer, she “reinvented” it and made another version perfect for oilier, overactive skins and customers who prefer a less emollient texture. She added oil-controlling ingredients for a semi-matte, long-wear finish. The colorless gel acts as a buffer to outside elements, while vitamins A, C, and E act as antioxidants and protect the skin from the harmful, aging effects of the environment. It also contains high water-content and addresses surface dehydration around active blemishes.
