Being obsessed with concealer, I literally couldn’t wait to try this brand new complexion product from Hourglass. It promises to retouch fading makeup, neutralise darkness and illuminate the complexion in a long-wear, skin-loving formula. Here’s the low down on Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid. I have photos, swatches and before and after photos.
I have been absolutely loving the other new launch from Hourglass, the Veil Translucent Setting Powder. From what I can tell online, it has been very well received. This new concealer is its perfect complexion partner. Hourglass are calling it “your morning cup of coffee, your 3pm piece of chocolate, and your post-workout glow all rolled into one!”

Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid Swatch – Vanilla
I have shade Vanilla to show you, which is perfect for brightening up my under eye area and concealing the look of redness and pores.
As you can see, it’s a lovely sheer product that adds coverage without being cakey or heavy. It has a luminous quality but no shimmer at all, so it’s kind to all skin types and textures and has a very flattering skin-like finish.
I apply it with the doe-foot, and then use my fingertip to tap and blend it into the skin. It is lovely! The feel is light and almost imperceptible yet is has a lovely brightening and softening effect.
If you need something to enhance and illuminate the complexion without adding any heaviness or the look of too much makeup, you will love this.
The Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid is £25 and available HERE now.
