Welcome to WEEK 11 of our Project Pan 12; ONE more week to empty my remaining products and for today’s featured item, I concede defeat; there is no way I’ll finish this primer!!!
As always, be sure to look at my Blogging partners in this year’s PP: Brainy Stashy (StashMatters), Sassy Jodi (ABrashAttitude) and Delightful Chanelle (Chanelle Hayley). This week’s featured product is the cult favourite Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer; a still very full cult favourite Hourglass…
This clean, satin-finish formula helps keep makeup looking fresh and prevents fading. Veil Mineral Primer also absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light to help hide and soften the look of skin imperfections and fine lines.
This water-resistant primer is also 100 percent free of fragrance, oil, paraben and gluten.
At Sephora: $24Cnd ($19US)to $87Cnd ($75US) depending of the size (0.33oz, 1oz or 2oz)
♥ Perfect for the T-Zone as it really blurs my pores and creates a splendid canvas,
♥ This product is waterproof/sweat proof,
♥ Doesn’t cause any breakouts or any irritation on my sensible skin,
♥ Makes my skin feel so soft and perfect for my makeup,
♥ This formula is one of the few that doesn’t emphasize dry patches,
♥ Vegan & cruelty-free.
♥ Pricier than most primers but you need just a little bit, as it blends effortlessly,
♥This primer doesn’t extend my makeup, I have maybe 1 or 2 hours of extended makeup wear before my foundation starts to break down,
♥ After a year in my stash, the formula’s consistency changed, so use it preferably within 6 months to one year after purchase (or buy a smaller format).
Normally, a primer serves two purposes: filling fine lines and smoothing pores, and keeping your makeup fresh all day. This product excels at masking those small defects, but for extending makeup durability, the effects are just not apparent. I absolutely love this primer but unfortunately it doesn’t pair well with my bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Gel that I have been obsessed with for the last 6 months. The two don’t match for some reasons. I’ve neglected this primer so much so that it’s still full. I’m so addicted to my bareMinerals foundation, that choosing this Hourglass Mineral Primer for this Project was maybe an error on my part; I just couldn’t let go of my bareMinerals. Shame on me !!!
Will I repurchase: YES! I’m rating this product 8,5/10. This is a solid primer and the hype is justified. Like I said, I would suggest buying a smaller format since you need so little and to be sure that it doesn’t go bad on you!
Very happy with this Project Pan! Out of the 12 chosen products, I will have finish nine!!! (Happy Dance)… With one week to go, it will be a breeze. I just think of all my other products winking at me, waiting to be used (or wanting to make THE list for my next Project Pan). Products have feelings too … 😉
Have a beautiful week my beauties!
