ILLAMASQUA MATTE VEIL PRIMER

Another new launch from Illamasqua is the new Matte Veil Primer. I'm a huge fan of the Hydra Veil Primer - I have gone through two tubs of the stuff in my time so when this came into my possession I was pretty darn excited. The Illamasqua Matte Veil is a water based primer that contains Butyelene Glycol which helps balance oil levels while retaining the skins natural moisture. The texture is light and creamy and feels really refreshing despite being a matte primer. I often find matte primers to be quite drying and can make the skin feel tight. Patted onto the face it mattifies the skin, helps makeup last longer and keeps the skin looking plump and hydrated. A great and innovative addition to the Illamasqua line - Can they do no wrong?

  4. I love the sound of this and really like the fact the packaging comes with a little spoon, how cute. The container also means no wastage of any product, always a bonus.
