A win....Love it...I was browsing for a best primer for the past two months and finally I spot this primer but still I don want to spend more before using the product.I got this mini primer which is very nice and I will sure get the next tube in full size....I haven't had any problems with breakouts, but I can totally see why this product might have that effect since it's basically a pore-filler... I find that my skin feels a tiny bit sticky to the touch on days when I use it, but it's barely noticeable and isn't a big problem for me.

"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

SO GOOD...It's ok...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!
