This setting powder sets my makeup and gives my skin a beautiful perfected look. I love how finely milled this product is and it doesn't overly mattify. It is perfectly balanced! The design of the packaging is very thought-out and looks luxurious. Hourglass really knocked the ball out of the park with this setting powder. The only con I would mention is that for the price, there maybe could be a little more product if you want to compare it to others in the same price range, but you would also need a less of this product to get the job done so that is also something to take into consideration. A little does go a lot further with this powder compared to others on the market.
Ok so to start, I am 40. And while I'm pretty fortunate to not be riddled with wrinkles, I have a few fine lines. And noticing no matter what powder I try it settles into the creases so bad. And I have tried some amazing powders. Smashbox halo, Kim chi, Bobbi Brown. All of these are amazing products. But maybe not so much for mature skin. Which I'm not all the way there, but I definitely don't want a product that accentuates my fine lines. ￼I saw a review of this product on Flip. It looked awesome. But again I figured it would just end up like the other ones, but then I was in store I saw it. I tried it on the back of my hand, which has more fine lines than my face will ever have. ￼ And I was so impressed I bought it. Tried it this morning and WOW. It's so fine that it does not accentuate fine lines. This is an amazing product and my very first hourglass product. And a forever staple in my makeup arsenal! OBSESSED!!!!
I do see reviews saying that they wish there was more product in there, but when I look at all of the other powders that I have it at has the same amount, so people might be referencing the travel size versus the full size.

It was just patchy on my skin.

This is the best powder for under the eyes and just in general for my combo/dry skin. It has a silky finish and is never cakey! This is my go-to every day!
ChrissyLuv from California
I tried the powder in Ulta, and it seemed like it would work great. Bought the small size just in case, but nothing comes out! No matter how hard I tap it, shake w/ lid, the powder just refused to dispense! Because of this, my undereye never gets enough powder to set, and my makeup wouldn't last. Not worth the price if it cannot be used.

Yall. This is hands down the best powder i have ever used! It makes my skin look so soft & blended perfectly over my foundation/concealer/blush. Not even kidding, I put it on & my jaw dropped.
Andrea from New Mexico
I hate the packaging . I can never get enough out . I have to use a makeup brush to bang on it so that some powder will come out . I havent figured out how/ or spent enough time trying to pull off the lid part. I wish they would do different packaging . Otherwise great product .

This is my absolute favorite setting powder! I absolutely love the blurring effect that it gives. It makes my under eye feel really smooth.
Wawa from Texas
I expected for the price point and for the name brand itself to give me a flawless undereye. It didn't. I applied it with a brush, a powder puff, etc and still it did not suit my undereyes. It emphasized the fine lines. I previously was using Laura Mercier's translucent powder and the finish IMO is much better. Do not rec.

Separates as soon as applied and clings to dry patches.

This has nice coverage and you don't have to use much ..
Samantha from Houston, Tx
I have bought this powder several times over the last few years. Makes your face feel silky. It's very lightweight and stays on all day. Does not cake or flake on your skin. Smells nice too.
Jessie from Cleveland
I bought this powder because of the great reviews it has and it is also an acne safe powder but it was extremely disappointing. I wanted to love it, I tried it with different prodcuts and nothing worked. It creased on my undereyes like crazy and it was very drying. I also noticed it would make my makeup seperate in certain areas and I never have that problem with other powders. This powder did not work for me!

I love Hourglass products in general, especially their brushes. This Veil powder is amazing! It doesn't settle into my fine lines the way a lot of other powders tend to do and lasts all day. I have oily skin and this works perfectly for keeping that at bay. It gives a beautiful blurring effect and I love that it's talc-free. This is a staple in my beauty arsenal.
MsMBE from Los Angeles, CA
I have a "light tan" complexion and had been looking for a talc free face powder. When I first tried this powder, I used too much and it left a strange cast. But, when applied in light layers, it gives a perfect finish.
Jamie-Lynn from FL
I've been using this for 5 years and it's the only powder I think i'll ever use if i can help it. It's the same price as most other setting powders but does double the work and leaves my makeup flawless even after a 16 hour serving shift.
Lauren from lancaster pa
My under eyes are always dry and this is the only setting powder that doesn't intensify it. It doesn't set into my fine lines and it looks natural instead of powdery.
Angel from Nevada
This setting powder will keep your makeup on for the whole day. Is on the pricey side but is worth it. And its non-comedogenic/ acne safe. 🤗🤗
Kate from Calabasas, CA
Amazing veil gifted by Hourglass Cosmetics! Has one of the smoothest finishes I've ever tried! Lightweight and very easy to use separately from foundation. Packaging is looking great and very easy to use. Darker shade can be used as a contouring as well.
Catherine from Estero fl
I love how soft this powder gifted by hourglass cosmetics is when putting it on. It feels like butter and the medium color looks great on tanned skin vs the translucent which always makes me seem whiter than the rest of my body. Highly recommended
Soraya from WA
This new Veil Translucent Setting Powder by Hourglass is so good! It's blurring and the perfect amount of tint. It gives you a beautiful flawless finish. Definitely give it a try! This was gifted to me by Hourglass for review.
Monisha from New Jersey
I always have problems with powders washing me out that I usually end up forgoing powder all together. I'm SO excited that I had the opportunity to try this powder gifted by hourglass cosmetics. It has never been easier to find my shade and I FINALLY found a powder that doesn't give me a white cast in photos or wash me out. I loveee!
Yana from Miami, FL
Great setting powder. I'm pretty tanned during summer, so I chose the medium shade and it worked perfectly. Applying it over my concelaler and tinted serum helped to make my makeup last throughout the day and get rid of excessive oil. The price is on the higher side, but the jar is going to last me a while!

Years ago I tried a powder from hourglass and I hated it! It was chalky and looked awful in pictures. I'm pleasantly surprised! I actually wore this on half of my face to really see the difference while I was wearing it, and it's beautiful! Your skin looks healthy without being matte, you still have the look of youthful skin without the extra dew. My pores (which are very big) were way less noticeable and the major thing I want to point out, is I barely used any. Less is more with this product. What a delight after my initial experience. This was gifted by hourglass.
Emily from Duvall Washington
This powder is absolutely beautiful on the skin. I was having so much trouble with cakeyness on my chin and in between my eyebrows and i tried SO MANY other powders but this one takes the cake. Initially i was a bit scared bc it looked a bit weird when i initially put it on but once it settled it left a beautiful finish and still looked good after 10 hours so i would definitely recommend.
KB from Nashville
I LOVE powder, but my dry and mature skin no longer does for the most part. This powder is different!!! It WORKS for my dry and mature skin without caking or clinging to dry areas. It was easy to find a shade on the site's shade finder., and I am so happy with this one!

I got the medium shade even though I have a bit lighter complexion and it actually worked perfect with my skin tone! Absolutely flawless application. The powder is a super fine texture that I light. Applied it over my liquid foundation and it gave a nice top color along with setting it. Didn't settle in lines and didn't give me a cake face look either. Works great with hourglass veil foundation.
