Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid (Review on dry skin)

Have the makeup Gods finally listened to our prayers for a brightening, non-creasing concealer? Well, yes… I would indeed say that they have. In one way or another anyway.

The Veil Retouching Fluid, ‘Refresh, Revive, and Retouch’ by Hourglass claims to have an innovative serum-like formulation which instantly illuminates to refresh, revive and retouch the complexion. With a weightless fluid also, this product is designed to be used in a multitude of ways. From refreshing parts of the face that need a touch of hydration to reviving the undereye area without the risk of caking or creasing, this product can also be used on the complexion for those no-makeup days.

 The Key Points

With so many key benefits and powerful claims, I wanted to easily list everything that Hourglass have written about the Veil Retouching Fluid.

All of this information can also be found on the Hourglass website, just in case you wanted to investigate and research this product further.

• REFRESH any part of the face with a touch of hydration and soft luminosity.
• REVIVE the undereye area without caking or creasing.
• RETOUCH with sheer coverage for no-makeup days.
• Weightless formulation with skin-nourishing ingredients, including; hyaluronic acid, plant water extract and grapefruit extract.
• This sheer formulation can be used anywhere on the face that needs instant radiance and light coverage.
• Use anytime during the day to touch up and perfect the complexion without disturbing makeup underneath.
• Available in 6 flexible shades

Before I go on to tell you how the Veil Retouching Fluid by Hourglass works – how it applies, blends and also lasts throughout your typical day. I wanted to just take this moment to say that I absolutely adore this product!

Even though this is technically not a concealer as such, the Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid is the perfect product in my opinion for lifting, brightening and adding just a hint of the most beautiful coverage to the undereye area. Working well for areas on the rest of the face also, this is a lovely light and subtle product to use, although you can definitely see a difference in your complexion and also appearance after using this product.

It has an ultra-lightweight formulation which is smooth, thin in consistency and somewhat gel-like!? Although, the formula of this product is more cream than gel in my opinion… which is strange I know. One thing I do know for sure, however, is just how easy this product is to use and even more so – just how easy this product is to blend. It is versatile, effortless and just so incredibly beautiful on the skin. I love it.

Speaking of effortless, I wanted to just point out that I usually apply a swipe of this under my under-eye area, take my pre-dampened BeautyBlender (after using this to also blend in any foundation) AND only need to dab this over the Veil Retouching Fluid a few times… for WALA it’s blended, flawless and smooth.

You can use this product throughout the day, over the top of already worn makeup or on those no-makeup days. Although, one thing that I will say for sure is that you don’t actually often have to reapply the Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid, as it lasts really well on its own from the morning when you first applied all of your makeup.
