I am a huge fan of primers. Huge. I have tried them all, and consider myself an expert of sorts. I have three or four regulars that I always return to, but have never really found one that blew me away. They are either wonderfully silky, but provide very little longevity, or they help my foundation last, but dry out my skin. I have yet to find one that suits my standards, until now.
I am proud to announce my new favorite foundation primer, Hourglass Veil Oil Free Primer. It is amazing. I let out an enthusiastic “ooooh!” the minute I applied it and my makeup was still flawless 8 hours later. I cannot remember the last time I went a full day without a basic foundation touch up.
The primer glides onto the skin like silk, feels hydrating, comforting, and gentle. Yet, the best bonus of this little wonder is the staying power it gives your foundation. I usually get foundation melt away around my cheeks, and the corners of my nose by mid day; this primer held my foundation is place, and kept the makeup disappearing act at bay. I know I should be putting this product in my kit, but I am selfishly keeping it for myself. This is one product that I was sampled, and will now have to be buying in bulk.
