Shopping my stash – Illamasqua Hydra Veil

Illamasqua Hydra Veil

This isn’t really going to be a long post, as I’ve already reviewed Hydra Veil in the past which you can check out here. I was a bit ambivalent about it the first time around, however recently I’ve rediscovered this and found I like it more than I did before.

At the time, I thought it wasn’t really suited to my oily skin type, which I still believe now, with one caveat. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I’m not sure about anyone else but with repeated use of Double Wear I can find my skin just goes dry and blegh, but prime my skin with Hydra Veil and I get the most beautiful finish – winning combo.

I definitely don’t think it’s top choice for when I’m wearing other dewier foundations, like Touche Eclat or Luminous Silk, as it would just slide right off, but for such a matte foundation as Double Wear it’s perfect for stopping the foundation clinging to the odd uneven patches on my face (around my nose I’m looking at you!)
The other thing I’ve noticed and I’m not sure whether it’s a coincidence or not, but I’ve been very spotty this week.

What items have you rediscovered lately?
