I tried a smaller size from Sephora before I ran out to get a bigger one. I bought it on the recommendation of someone who had very sensitive with severe acne. Skin: sensitive combination acne prone skin; none to mild acne. Climate: We the NorthIt's true it doesn't cover all your imperfections but it doesn't sink into them either. It wears wonderfully under liquid and (non mineral) powder foundation really well. It's okay with heavier creamier foundation. It does exacerbate dry spots.It does leave a very white cast on my Deep South Asian skin but is neglible under make up. Great purchase for acne-prone sensitive skin. It goes on smooth even over acne. (The zinc might actually be helping my acne). But not so great for the wallet. Definitely 2nd Of my fav top 3 primers.

I’ve been using this primer strictly for the past few months. Although I like it, I don’t think it’s worth the price. It helps my foundation/ bb cream apply smoothly, but doesn’t soften skin imperfections or cover pores as it claims. It also separates a little in the summer. I’m a primer junkie, and this doesn’t even make my top 5. I’m still happy I got to try it, and will continue to use it until I run out. I will not re-purchase.

I received a sample of this at Mecca. Going on my skin it feels satiny and smooth but my gosh it saps my skin of moisture and doesn't work with my mineral make up. If you have dry skin this is not hydrating at all. I might give it another go in summer when my skin is a bit oiler but during the colder seasons it's definitely a miss for me.

There is a before and an after in my life after I started using this primer. It's that good. I used to think that primer was useless (I was using the supposedly effective Laura Mercier primer), but then I finally gave in and tried this one. It smooths my combination skin out without adding extra oil and really, really helps my foundation last without transferring or changing color. I am on my first bottle of this but my second one is in sight. I love this product.

Whitening effect doesn't look that natural, doesn't fully fill enlarged pores from acne recovery.Texture is silky but doesn't have that wow factor to make it this expensive.

I've had this product for a while and it's been underutilized but I am reaching for it more and more. It provides a weightless canvas for my Chanel Perfection Lumiere, Nars Luminious or Koh Gen Do foundations. These are all light coverage so the primer polishes the finish without the look of more makeup. Just a little bit is needed and it goes on like silk. Has the added benefit of SPF but my moisturizer does that job. My foundation not only looks smooth but it adds a touch more luminosity and it lasts through an entire day. Well worth the price. Sometimes the pump gets stuck but the packaging is otherwise ok.

Hourglass has truly made an impact in the world of cosmetics at least for me anyways. When I first tried this primer a few years back I wasn't impressed by it. However, over time I grew to love this gem !. Now it's a # 1 in my primer collection. In the summer months I love this a lot because it never lets me down. It's like liquid silk that veils your face and it hides imperfections allowing anything you put on top to look flawless. One of the qualms I know can be troublesome with this product is the fact it does look rather ghostly on application. However, I do find it helps to make you look more even when you put a foundation overtop. Price wise is a bit steep but I'd be willing to pay for it. It does hold your makeup on even through very physical moments. I've got combination skin and while the oil does come through slightly it's not going to affect your foundation. Definitely worth the investment !.

Hourglass comes out with a smaller number of products every year, but I've noticed most of them have a niche and perform well (I have mainly used their complexion pro). This primer is an excellent base for everyday, because it does what it says and I appreciate that in products.The consistency is silicone based, but has mineral sun protection and a little 1/2 pea size will cover my entire face. So even though it's expensive it lasts a whole year or more for me. It works great as a primer and holds my make up in place, I have oily acne prone skin and this makes my makeup last long 12-16 hour days. I like the way my skin looks even at the end of the day and it keeps my blush, highlight and bronzer from becoming patchy or non-existent.I bought this primer because I was experiencing breakouts and realised my foundations were seeping into my pores causing build-up (even after thorough removal & cleansing). I heard this was a good base to protect the skin and it's true when I wear this I don't usually break out and my pores are clear/ not so congested.The only thing is that it has a white cast due to the sunscreen, which can make you look ashy. But any medium to full coverage foundation will cover that up.I love Hourglass and will keep repurchasing the Mineral Veil.

I really do like this primer. It's the only one that covers up my gigantic, crater-like pores around my face (not even porefessional could do it from Benefit), and it helps to hold on the foundation without it oiling away. It covers up impurities nicely and lets the foundation glide nicely over it.However - the price for a full bottle is a joke, which is why I have a small bottle of 10ml and only use it on special occasion.

Fortunately I bought the Mini size and it was purchased during a sale. I definitely wouldn't invest in this although im sure I'll use up my small tube. This product is SO hyped and I learned I need to take base product rave reviews with a grain of salt because everyone has different skin. My skin is a textured mess of fine lines, large pores, acne scarring, and it is oily. This primer doesn't do anything. It doesn't fill in pores or lines. It *feels* good on the skin and maybe does some slight color correcting bc it's a little bluish on me from the minerals-- so foundations that are orangey look a bit more neutral. I don't think I get oily as quickly wearing this primer verse not wearing this primer. So there's that. In all this is super underwhelming. Mac oil control lotion does more than this. Nyx primers do more than this. Not entirely sure what this is meant to do. But meh.
