Where Have You Been All My Life? #2

Here is another instalment of "Where Have You Been All My Life?". I feel like lately I've been finding some really amazing products that work so well with my skin. And this product has been game changing, the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer.

I only bought the sample size, because I didn't want to spend $79 on a primer that was not going to work with my skin. But I started to run out today and I have the urge to go back and buy the full size. Why? Because it is the best primer I've ever tried. Hands down. I know, I used to rave on about the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer but I came to realise that it wasn't doing anything to help my makeup stay on longer or control the oil. The Hourglass one seems to do both and it does them well. I have oily skin and my skin stays matte for longer. Yes, after about 6 hours I can see some shine on my nose but that is pretty darn impressive. And I've noticed that my makeup dies stay on for longer, but again, after about 8 hours, it does start to come off around my nose but I'm always itching my nose so that's fine. This primer isn't a miracle primer that will fix all my problems but it's pretty damn close.

I would highly recommend this primer to everyone, but definitely buy the small size first just incase it doesn't work as well for you.



  1. I've heard amazing things about this primer, i really want to try it, although its super pricey!

    1. Definitely check out the smaller size, I think it's 10ml for about 20 pounds. Which is weird because it's only 25 Australian dollars, usually we have to pay more! But mine has lasted for about 3 months which is great! x

  2. I love my Smashbox Photo Ready primer but you're making me consider giving this a go. Great post!

    P.S. I'd love for you to check out the giveaway on my blog!
