So soft...I glow!...I purchased this product following a sugestion from a bloger I watch, and truly believe is a good product, the application of this primer is very smooth and a perfect addition to a good foundation for a sensitive skin....I got this as a sample in a gift just before Christmas--I don't wear primers (the few I tried I never thought gave any great results) but I was so impressed I ended up buying the full size product a few weeks later.

Not bad...SO GOOD...I felt like I had tried all eyeliners that claimed to be waterproof and smudge proof, but none ever left me satisfied....I have tried every eyeshadow primer Sephora has ever had (well, at least it felt like I had) and after using UD's for years and switching to MUFE's for a number of years, I was on the prowl for something even better because I was getting frustrated at allergy season time that even with eye cream lathered on my lids, MUFE's and UD's primers would pill or give me crusty corners (yeah, ew!

it's ok...No lie!...When I REALLY notice a difference unlike I experience with any other primer is when I happen to catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror of I'm out or if I'm touching up my makeup at work---- THATS when I notice a huge difference- after 3,4,5, even 8 hours I still look good... Not an oily mess like I would normally be!!...I thought I was going to love it but honestly I can't decide it made my skin feel wonderful very soft and smooth but as far as my pores I didn't see much of a difference and as far as long lasting it honestly wasn't I felt like it made my makeup slide off its not worth $45 if it was cheaper I would repurchase but for the price I can get something better

"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
