Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mood Light is terrible I got a sample of Mood Light and got it was horrible. I love the Hourglass Veil primer so much, its probably HG for me but THIS one was so bad. With or without a moisturiser under it, it balls up. It sits on top of the skin like a heavy cakey mess and does not work well with any foundation. So happy I never payed for full size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really worth it Considering the pricepoint, it isn't really worth it. Occasionally left my foundation with a cakey finish which doesn't happen with my other primers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HG! Got mood light in a beauty loop box and fell in love with it and bought the full size! Sits nicely on my dry skin and the colour compliments my extremely fair complexion. When I use this with Nars Sheer Glow... words cannot describe! The foundation blends so nicely into the skin and my makeup lasts all day. If you can, get a sample and try it out!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Under performer I went in to store to buy Mecca brand primer and was talked into buying this from sales assistant as a better product. Well how disappointed was I after purchasing, the texture is awful. It balls up slightly and doesn't go on smoothly. Even after warming it up between hands and fingertips it drags on your skin. I think hang on it's meant to be a primer! Nice enough glow - Luminous light - but sorry will not purchase again and am already looking around for a new primer even though I haven't finished this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I purchased this about 4 months ago, hoping it would even out some of my pigmented skin tone. It's ok as a primer but didn't really correct my tone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drying and Flaky Purchased this on the recommendation of my local Mecca instead of my usual stila. I was having trouble with an oily T zone. What a mistake. It is drying and when applied just gathers in clumps and flakes, even with lots of moisturiser. Sorry not buying this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Move over Hourglass Veil Primer, mumma's got a new favourite! I've been a fan of the hourglass veil primer for so long! Only problem I find being an oily girl and having to set down my foundation is I find sometimes I look dull and flat! So I was excited to give this a go and it did not disappoint! All the benefits of the veil primer with that added glow! I use luminous light and I love it, just be careful not to use too much product as it can ball up and flake off, directions say pea size amount which is perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A let-down from Hourglass After much success with Hourglass' Veil Mineral Primer (absolutely amazing stuff) I was thoroughly disappointed in this product. I tried this in Mood Light. At first it feels ok when applying, it spreads alright enough but just doesn't sit right. It feels heavy, not what a primer should feel like. It does have a nice shimmer to it on bare skin, though. Under makeup is where it really fails. Even with a light application of foundation (powder or liquid, I tried both) the nice shimmer turns ruddy and dirty. However the main issue I found with it is that it gathers in EVERY LINE OR CREASE YOU HAVE (and I'm only 21 so don't have many of those!). Add some foundation to the mix and you've got all your lines and creases outlined for you - great. I get what Hourglass are aiming to achieve with this primer, however it just doesn't get there.

Which shade would be best to cancel out redness? 

Asked by: Grace123
I would say any of them except mood light. Luminous light if you are pale and dim light if you are tan.

What are the key differences between these primers and the Houglass Mineral Veil? Thanks :) 

Asked by: StephEA
Hey :) I have this primer in Mood Light (pink hued) and the mineral veil (which I really love). They both provide a really smooth and velvet-y canvas to apply makeup on, and I'd say the key difference is that this one blurs imperfections a little bit better. But that could be due to the fact that Mood Light is slightly tinted whilst the mineral veil goes on almost clear. Hope this helps! Instagram @beautloves
