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

I received a sample of this through Beautytap, and this is honestly the best primer I have ever used. I have hormonal acne, and dry skin, so finding a product that doesn’t irritate my skin is hard to come by these days but this product is brilliant. My make-up stays on so well and I don’t get the dry skin I normally get using other products. My aim is dewy healthy skin that has a natural glow and no shimmer! This product achieves this so well. It looks like it wouldn't do much as it's a clear gel but really... Read more

Let me start by saying that I am not really a primer person, and have only ever had bad experiences with face primers. This product, however, is really unique in that it is a sheer, jelly texture that doesn't apply or feel like a typical primer at all. I actually found this product to be more like a moisturizer or skincare product, which led to me actually really liking it! I sometimes get large, red, cystic pimples which are super hard to cover with concealer because they are very greasy on top but this hydra veil created a sort of... Read more

Okay you need to try this! Let me tell you, the texture that this hydrating face primer gives you is pure buttery smooth skin! when you apply this product you will notice a slight cooling on the skin because of the jelly texture (jelly with no bounce) then once it’s fully absorbed the product makes the skin feel so soft and non sticky, with zero residue. Which is why I think it works so well under makeup. It’s clear so it won’t warp your skin tone or mess with any makeup routine. This is a win win for me, hydration... Read more

I actually received this product in my Boxycharm last year and felt I should give it a review. The jelly consistency is definitely different and you can use it sparingly. It does create a smooth canvas and covers pores. I noticed my makeup doesn’t oxidize as quickly through the day. It also has some moisturizing properties to it and doesn’t leave a weird residue like some primers do.
The all and all finish is matte so if you are looking for a dewy look this definitely is not the product for you. The little spoon that comes with it is also... Read more

This primer does the trick and doesn't over dry the skin as some tend to do! Gives the skin a nice smooth, yet matte finish without the dryness. It's worth the try😊
