Illamasqua Introduces Matte Veil for Summer 2014

Illamasqua Matte Veil

When Illamasqua Hydra Veil released I didn’t have enough good things to say about it! Now that warm weather is on the way the new Illamasqua Matte Veil has captured my eye.

Illamasqua introduces Matte Veil for Summer 2014 to not only prime skin but also to give it a matte finish.

Take a look!

Illamasqua Matte Veil ($48) used Butyelene Glycol which aids in dissolving oil while drawing and retaining moisture. The use of Sodium Hyaluronate keeps skin balanced.

Matte Veil acts to control shine throughout the day and well into the evening by creating a matte effect on skin. This comes in the same elegant black jar as the original Hydraveil and comes with a tiny hygienic spatula to scoop up a small measured dose.

The original was actually kept it’s original form after each use. It reformed after scooping a bit out! I found this fascinating…! I wonder of Matte Veil has the same formulation!

One of the best products I’ve run across to keep skin oil and shine free was Urban Decay’s incredible Deslick in a Tube but I have a feel this may likely be just as good if not better!

I know for myself I love and use Hydraveil quite often so I’m quite curious about this new formula!

Illamasqua Matte Veil is available now at Bloomingdales.com.

    You had me at Illamasqua and matte! I am definitely going to have to try this – I hate summer…”slickness”!

    This product sounds awesome, too bad there are no counters that sell this product nearby me. I always like to try before I buy.

    Sounds very interesting! I am very curious as to whether it will live up to it’s description. I am currently using the MOM (milk of magnesia) and it keeps my shine away. Need to try this product out.

    Matte veil is soooo different the texture is really like a moisturiser texture but dries down matte it actually smells a lot like Strawberry Yoghurt as well haha

    It’s a really great product you’ll love it!

      I can’t WAIT to try it Andrew! I actually originally saw the launch on your g+ and soon after I got a pitch for it so was excited it came to the US so quickly 😀 thought I might have to wait!
