WHAT IS VEIL COVER CREAM?
If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the hunt for the perfect foundation offering incredible coverage without being heavy. A few months ago I was invited along to an event in Middlesbrough as an introduction to Veil Cover Cream. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend as it was a little too far for me to travel on a weekday evening. However, the ladies at Veil were kind enough to send me a sample of their product to try at home and see what the fuss was about.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Veil Cover Cream isn’t like your usual drugstore foundation, it’s a high coverage camouflage make-up which offers long-lasting coverage for a range of imperfections. As I suffer from a sensitive strip across my nose and cheeks, as I’ve previously mentioned, I am prone to redness. This is the one area I’m always after a little extra coverage.
Because Veil is specifically for use on skin imperfections like birthmarks, rosacea and other skin pigmentation, I felt this would be the perfect product to help reduce my redness. Plus with a wide range of different shades, you’re able to custom blend the perfect shade to fit your skin tone, something I struggle with from the high street as I am crazy pale.
SO WHAT DID I THINK?
I was sent a sample kit to try, within this I was given small samples of a range of their shades along with two setting powders in a translucent shade and the shade dusk. As always I opted for the palest shades in the kit, one with a yellow undertone and another with a pinker undertone. I chose to give the shade vanilla a go as I felt cream was a little too yellow for my colouring.
The key to this product is to use thin layers and build it up. You must believe me when I say a little goes a long way! It took me a few tries to get the right amount without going overboard with the product, but I eventually got there. Because Veil Cover Cream claims to cover tattoo’s I decided to give this a go on mine to really test the coverage. Holy moly it worked amazingly! I wasn’t expecting it to cover my tattoo as well as it did, but low and behold it looked like I didn’t have any tattoo’s at all.
Priced at £19.99 for 10g Veil Cover Cream is priced around mid-range, but given how little of the product you need to use you really do get a cost per wear. One good thing about this product is you can order a sample kit if you’re unsure of what your shade might be, a perfect way to try before you buy.
