Expanding My Makeup Horizons with Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder

I have been pretty loyal to MAC for my powders over the last 10 years (Studio Fix Foundation and Mineralized Skinfinsh), but I am really loving Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder. I was really excited to try this powder because my friends have been racing about Hourglass Veil Primer. This powder doesn't provide as much coverage, but it provides a smooth "blur" that is very natural looking. It's not matte, but it also doesn't look "dewy" or metalic - I would compare it to a velvet finish. Applied on its own, it does not go on as smoothly as it does over a liquid foundation. I've been pairing it with Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation and love the combination.

Although it doesn't give coverage like a powder foundation, I think it does a great job of disguising or smoothing blemishes. I have very dry skin and I also feel that it does not collect in my creases or crack like other powders do and wears really well throughout the day. I've heard amazing things about the primer, so that's next in my wish list. It is pretty pricey, but a little goes a very long way! I would expect that this would last me a year when applied with a brush.

Have you tried this powder before? What did you think? I'd love to hear what you're loving right now!
