"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

Not bad...SO GOOD...My favorite brow pencil is not waterproof but this stuff leaves it looking perfect all day....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!

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....I really like this primer, I recently discovered that if I smooth a tiny bit on top of my makeup just at my cheeks nearest to my nose where the poors are m ost obvious, it makes them almost invisible unless I stare way closer than normal in the mirror.

I like...in love...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...I got a sample from Sephora and tried it and I must say this is an amazing primer.It goes on your skin like velvet.I put it on using a magnifier mirror(x10) to see the effect and it was truly amazing.I decided not to keep it because I have another really good primer from Dermatologica and felt that it wasn't justified for me to keep it at this point.
