Illamasqua's Hydra Veil Primer is a nice product, but the price is a bit steep, I admit I usually do not spend this much on primer.

The primer itself was really easy to work with, it scoops out and spreads nicely. I did notice, it did take a while to dry and was a bit more moist than any primer I've used before. I can see the difference in my skin though, the primer really made my face glow a bit more making my make up look more apparent or pigmented. I will probably continue to use this as eyeshadow...

Truthfully, I was not a huge fan of this product. The consistency of this veil is very jelly like, almost exactly like gelatin. This makes is a little annoying to scoop out of its jar. Once it's on your skin and rubbed in, it leaves a sticky feeling on this skin. For a regular day of just moisturizing I wouldn't consider using the. However, because it is on the stickier side, it's a great primer for makeup because it helps hold foundation in place. But even then, I wouldn't use it under my makeup every time.

There are several things that I love about this product. For one, I’m a big fan of the texture of this gel: its consistency is silky smooth, filling fine lines and leaving a soft matte finish. Don’t be fooled, though. The hydration is very much present albeit the soft matte finish. I’m used to having combination to oily skin, so anything that delivers hydration without leaving me a greasy mess is a win for me. Also, I thoroughly appreciate the addition of great skincare ingredients such as microalgae, vitamin C, and B3 in what would be considered a “makeup” product... Read more

The hydro vail is small but packs a powerful punch. A clear jelly consistency threw me off at first because when I would tap it with my finger I didn't think that I received any product however once I pulled my finger lightly across the top of it products started to build up on my finger tip and I started applying it on to the skin. It goes on very lightly and you don't need a lot of product once it absorbs into the skin it does have a light tacky feel to it so you know it's going to... Read more

Starting to think how the base under makeup is VITAL, brings us to the question for primers and whether or not they are needed. Do we or don't we? Being in the Texas humidity, I try to have the least amount of layers on to keep my oily skin as light as possible. I normally also tend to use just a pore filling primer or a mattifying type of primer. That being said, I had used this sample size under my spf for the pool and gym, due to the ingredients of niacinamide and ascorbic acid (as it can boost... Read more

I really love this product. I was part of the MasterClass and fell in love with this product. I loved the one with the gold shimmer to it. I love the gel feel and it makes me feel like I'm really prepping my skin when I use it unlike other primers that I have used. When I have traveled I usually don't take it with me. I've picked up another one to travel with and each time I use it I began to miss my Hydra Gel Primer. The other ones feels slippery ...like sliding off my face. It feels... Read more

LOVE this product!!! I have oily skin and primers sometimes do more harm than good in terms of my foundation staying on. Sometimes primers make texture on my skin more obvious and ironically do not help my foundation and concealer stay on. I think I am somewhat rare in this; I think primers are a great edition to most people's makeup arsenal. A primer like this that has skincare infused in it is your best investment. I love that this has B and C vitamins and Microalgae in it. All can brighten the skin and in... Read more

I received a sample of this primer through Beautytap. I absolutely love this primer . It’s very hydrating, not thick, but very light on the skin. Perfect for any skin type, but I have dry and sensitive skin. At first it feels somewhat like a refreshing moisturizer that melts right into your skin. It is not heavy at all and just has the perfect “tackiness” to it in order to be a primer. My foundation went on flawlessly and stayed put my whole 12 hour day. I will definitely buy this primer as I have spent a lot more money... Read more

This cosmetic company can do no wrong when it comes to Illamasqua products. I have been a big fan from day one, and this is a must-have. It's the scope of everything to do with adding this to our makeup routine. It's smooth and feels lovely as you carefully massage it into the skin, nothing heavy or the feel of silicon laying over your skin.
The lightweight-based formula pampers the sink; this is the perfect formula if you use this with your makeup primer. It keeps everything in place flawlessly and infused with enriched with vitamins b3. It delivers when... Read more

This Hydra Veil Primer from Illamasqua works as a perfect canvas before makeup application! It has a clear gel-like consistency that glides on like a dream. The best part about it is it’s hydrating properties. I love that it’s infused with vitamin B3 and C along with plant extracts. Not many primers also act like skincare! Did I mention it helps smooth the skin and minimizes the look of large pores? Yes!
Another positive is that you can apply this right up to the lash line and I love that because I’ll put my concealer on top of it... Read more
