I NEED to try this primer soooo bad!!!!! 😍😍😩


Often you'll see primers that fill in pores and leave your face matte. But with people with dry skin like me, you don't really need the latter. I love how this target my two main skin concerns, which is dryness and large pores. It has a very interesting jello-like texture that goes on the face smoothly. It feels light like water and leaves your face with a smooth and hydrated base for a flawless makeup application.


Hydra Veil is amazing. It really improves the look of my skin and visibly diminishes the appearance of "smile" wrinkles around my eyes. I know it's meant to be used as a primer, but I've been wearing it without makeup and the effect is so gratifying!


Amazing demo of this product. The results were so natural and lovely. I grabbed this to get ready for my September virtual meetings. Going to up my game.


Such a pleasure watching this week’s Illamasqua live demo—this Hydra Veil Primer looked fabulous on screen and I’m ordering some today. I plan to wear it without foundation for a finished look that won’t be compromised by wearing a pandemic mask.


I had the opportunity to watch the live demonstration of this product! I live how the texture is hydrating and goes into the skin seamlessly without residue. This Primer gets rid of any redness, fills in pores/ wrinkles for a beautiful makeup application! You may use it alone without foundation for a natural glow!
A little goes a long way, primee comes with a small spatula!


Love love love it the way my skin feels after I apply the primer and my makeup looks flawless.


This is the best hydrator/primer you’ll ever use! This product sets right in and your skin instantly feels so hydrated and so smooth. This product fills in any dry patches leaving you with a hydrated and smoothed base for a flawless makeup application.


I've been using this primer for at least a year, and it's my number one recommendation to anyone who is adverse to the slick feeling of silicone-based primer. Even my non-foundation-wearing friends use this as a hydrating product under setting powder. This has the craziest texture. It's like jello in the jar and "heals" itself after you scoop out a small amount. On the skin, it feels like water and plumps and hydrates beautifully. I highly recommend that you wipe the spatula clean on a tissue or rinse it under warm water to keep it sanitary instead of simply storing... Read more
