The Beauty Product I Wanted to Love, But Didn’t…

Wanted to love Hourglass Veil Primer but it was a fail for my oily skin

That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 9.3.18

Question of the Week: Name the last beauty product you REALLY wanted to love, but didn’t.

Answer: Despite multiple recommendations by Hourglass makeup artists, and assurances that even my oily-skinned, primer-phobic self would love it; I do not love Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. I’ve read tons of reviews from people with oily skin who adore this product. But for me, all I feel is the silicone in it.

So for me, it just didn’t work out. But that’s ok. Hourglass and I are hot and heavy on tons of other products; like every Ambient Lighting powder version EVER.

    Primer usually isn’t my friend, but I do remember trying this same Hourglass primer and I had some great results, but I noticed that I was breaking out like crazy and on parts of my face that never break out, so I had to discontinue use (I have some sensitivity to silicones). It’s too bad because I’ve absolutely loved everything else I’ve tried from Hourglass!
