Brilliant !!! by Seliin
(Posted on 01/12/2013)
I'll just cut straight to the point ..... this is by far the best primer I have ever tried/had. Having an extremely dry skin, I found this primer to be incredibly moisturising. It feels slightly sticky when on: however it grabs on to your foundation like no other. Its absolutely fantastic! I set my foundation with the Illamasqua Loose Powder and HELLO flawless skin. I am so very pleased with this product and higly recommend it . This is the best primer I have ever used. Thank you Illamasqua *****

Kit staple by Rebecca

I don't know how I've lived without this! I have dry, sensitive skin and Hydra Veil actually keeps my foundation looking great all day. Usually when I wear foundation I get dry patches by the end of the day - but not when I prime with this. I adore it. It works beautifully when I use it with Skin Base on my clients.

I purchased this from the illamasqua counter in Birmingham. It felt so cool once applied on the skin. Gave an instant boost of hydration and face felt so plump! Would highly recommend purchasing this if you want flawless dewy skin!

Hydra Veil by Beth
(Posted on 12/10/2013)
I find it a little sticky, to start with, however feel good when on ,as I used it as base to my foundation.
I have Dry sensitive skin, sometimes it does sting if my skin has dried out , however it is a good product and I will sometime buy again.

Just incredible by emlota
(Posted on 03/09/2013)
I cannot recommend the product highly enough, as a moisturiser, serum, or a primer. Such an all-rounder with wonderful benefits for the skin and for make up application. The pot is attractive and also has a very large amount in it considering how small an amount is needed per application - I am expecting he tub to last a good few months.
Buy Hydra Veil!
Love this, but is it veggie? by AnnaCM
(Posted on 09/08/2013)
Been using Hydra Veil since it came out in April and it gives such a beautiful finish. I'm dry on my cheeks with an oily t-zone and it makes Skin Base look even better. I often wear it by itself! But I'm hearing conflicting reports, could Illamasqua confirm it's suitable for vegetarians or vegans?

I love this! I have very sensitive combination skin and this looks and feels wonderful. Looks great just on its own and under make up. Would definitely recommend!
Very good by Flavia
(Posted on 28/07/2013)
I bought this product not really knowing what it was, purely because of the good reviews it had received - and I'm glad I did. It says it's not a primer, but I do use it as one. My skin is combination, with lots of dry bits and this hydrates the dryness so foundation doesn't go patchy. It also doesn't irritate oily parts so it is fine for oily skin too. It just helps create a very natural, glowing skin. Your skin will look good with this, even if you don't have perfect skin. Well worth the money since you only need a tiny amount each time you use it.
Simply the best primer by Iz
(Posted on 26/07/2013)
This stuff is beautiful, I've not found anything to match it. I have a mixture of dry and oily patches, and hydra veil stabIlises both, leaving me with a gorgeous dewy finish. I hardly need to touch up at all throughout the day, and even with the recent hot weather, it's held my foundation brilliantly. I've used it on clients with great results, so far its universally loved!

I have dry bits, oily bits, bits that don't hold make up.. I have tried so many primers and none have worked.. They have made me look worse!! So when I was shown this I was thinking gotta give it a go. So glad I did..
A Must Have!!!!! by Amber

Love this product!!! Skin looks flawless and foundation does not move out of place all day. Got it tested in Selfridges at the Trafford Centre and purchased it straight away. Defo worth the price :)
Wow by Holly
(Posted on 22/07/2013)
So I'd watched xxmichaeljames' video on youtube about this product and he loved it so went to go read and watch more reviews and everyone loved it so went to the Manchester Exchange Square counter where I go for all my Illamasqua stuff and asked to try Hydra Veil and it felt amazing so I went and bought it and do not regret it my skin looks amazing! Will repurchase this definitely
Incredible. Amazing. Insane. by R. William
(Posted on 18/07/2013)
While Illamasqua says this isn't a primer, it acts as a pretty amazing one. I'd describe it as being hit in the face with a bucket of water. It is SO intensely moisturising. As a primer it works AMAZINGLY. It almost glues foundation to the skin. It also completely smooths and evens dry skin. This product is completely unique. I can't recommend it enough. It is amazing plain and simple, the packaging is sleek and professional. I could rave about it for hours. Well done Illamasqua. You're my favourite brand for a reason.
Finally, glowing not greasy! by Charlotte
(Posted on 16/07/2013)
I'm honestly gobsmacked by how healthy and glowing Hydroveil makes my skin look. I suffer from excessively oily skin (especially in summer) so wasn't expecting miracles with this product, but I'm so so pleased. I never thought I could look dewy instead of shiny! The MUA applied this at the counter with Skin Base on top, but I've been using it in place of a moisturiser and primer with my usual MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and the end result is just as lovely. It helps my makeup stay put throughout the day and doesn't cause it to crease, slide or patch. I can't thank Illamasqua enough!
Terrible by ...
(Posted on 06/07/2013)
Doesn't work at all. I'm so angry and disappointed that it works for everyone else. I have oily skin but make up creases into the sides of my nose and around my mouth towards the end of the day, I thought this would be the answer. Tried it with Rich Liquid, doesn't work. Tried it with Skin Base, doesn't work. Makes my skin look dry, all my pores look bigger, skin looks uneven. Very disappointed, I don't understand all the 5 star reviews.

I live the way Hydraveil feels on my skin. Instantly smooth and flawless. On the days I don't wear makeup I still apply hydraveil and my skin looks so much better instantly. I can't live without it and I recently visited the Sydney Store in Australia and purchased a backup for when I run out. I love you Illamasqua!
Unique new product by Drake
(Posted on 04/07/2013)
Hydra Veil is not only fun to wiggle around in the jar, but as far as hybrid primer/skin care products go, this is my fav. I typically don't bother with primer... and some days not even moisturizer to be honest. But I love how this instantly refreshes my skin, and once i've applied it and let it set for a couple minutes, how smooth the foundation goes on. I have oily skin too, and this hasn't bothered it at all.
Doesn't work for everyone. by Ashlea
(Posted on 02/07/2013)
I really wanted to love this product. I have the most awkward skin to deal with; very sensitive, very dry on the cheeks and chin, but a really oily t zone. I had my makeup done in Selfridges with Hydra Veil as a base, Skin Base foundation and a powder foundation to set it all. I actually walked out of the store with the Hydra Veil as it sounded like the answer to my prayers. An hour walking around the mall and a movie later you could have water skied on my forehead. I unfortunately had to return the product as it couldn't even last for 4 hours.
Amazing by taras treats
(Posted on 26/06/2013)
This is the must have product for anyone with dry/dehydrated skin that is needing instant relief and a base to apply makeup on to. You won't believe that a primer can be this good or achieve such amazing results and you need the tiniest amount so this jar will last a while as you cannot use too much if you use the exact spoon amount. Dont try to use more or it will be a waste.
Perfection! by Kyra
(Posted on 18/06/2013)
This is the ultimate base for any foundation! I use it both with my illamasqua skin base and my mac studio fix fluid! It gives a smooth, flawless base for your foundation and lasts all day without seeming shiny! Would certainly recommend :) and re-purchase!
Just ...wow by Missy

It's the best product that I've ever used on my skin .... I've tried a load of products but this is just WOW ... Highly recommend x
Best primer I have ever used!!! by Hayley
(Posted on 01/06/2013)
I normally use nars or smashbox primers but I had heard so many good things about this product I just had to try it! Amazing primer! Makes your skin look so dewy and flawless. I have quite big pores and the hydraveil literally makes them look non existent! Due to the consistency of the gel you only need to use the tiniest bit of product so I can imagine that it will last me quite a long time. Keeps your makeup on for hours, great staying power! Worth every penny! :-)
I wish I could rate this 10 stars! by Caylee
(Posted on 23/05/2013)
Where to begin? I received this in the mail today and quickly rushed to try it. The texture is so unique and you need the tiniest amount! It absorbed effortlessly and my skin instantly felt as though it received a glass of water.
I'm oily and dehydrated...so by the end of the day, even with mattifying primers/powders etc...my makeup separates, clings to my dry patches, and is basically a hot mess. Now, I'm a makeup artist...so I'm not unaware of products I can use to prevent this. I just haven't found one I've loved enough to rave about. Until now! My makeup looked flawless! FLAWLESS! My skin base went over it beautifully. And I always double up my coverage. So it didn't even get cakey with my Illamasqua powder foundation on top!
This is worth every penny. I will be purchasing again. Even before I run out! Just to make sure I don't go without.
Way to go on this one, Illamasqua! You never disappoint!
very good by Kryara
(Posted on 20/05/2013)
I bought this as I already use the satin primer and a make up artist friend recommended it to me as I have dry and dehydrated skin. It is very very good, and stopped my skin base going flaky on my dry areas and also stopped it cracking around the base of my nose (my pet peeve!) The only worry I have is it wont last as long as my satin primer and therefore it makes me reluctant to use it everyday, and for the price i'm really hoping it will. But I'll see how long it takes for me to go through it. Other than that, its great!

The Holy Nectar For Skin!!! by Sat
(Posted on 06/05/2013)
This little 30ml gem is worth every penny. I purchased this today after the sales consultant prepared my skin for a suitable foundation colour. I had exceptional dry skin owing to the weather and indoor heating and was shocked that after using this product my skin felt hydrated instantly. I have tried many expensive and drugstore creams, but nothing beats this amazing product. Highly recommend. Way to go Illamasqua x
