Illamasqua Radiance Veil

The latest primer from Illamasqua is for the radiance lovers. Presented in the same style pot as the Matte Veil Primer we reviewed back in April 2014 except the Illamasqua logo is in a holographic print.

This primer is a much thicker texture than the matte finish, it has a texture similar to a whipped cream. This product is a primer/illuminator mix and coats the skin in a golden pearl sheen.

It's by no means a natural highlight but quite a strong glaze of gold on the skin. The highlighting pigments are super fine glitter particles rather than a moisturising sheen or gloss.
 It doesn't feel greasy or moisturising so would be suitable for all skins, even oily. 
 We wouldn't really use this all over the face, it's quite intense. Buffing it onto the areas of the face you require a highlight works best or if you do want to wear it all over then mix a tiny amount in with your foundation and blend together over the face.
 The cream dries off pretty quick and if not correctly blended it can collect in an area and be tricky to blend, we found applying with a slightly damp brush helped to blend evenly.
 This primer is £32 for a 30ml pot which would last ages. It's available now from



  1. I was actually going to say that this could look amazing mixed into your foundation for that extra bit of glow (wouldn't say no!). The swatch on the back of your hand looks so dreamy. I would love to try this product, though I hope it isn't too glittery in real life.

  3. Mixed into foundation this would be perfect this time of year when a little bit of a glow is needed!


  4. I love highlights but not sure I love the pot packaging of this :/

  5. I tried the old matte veil primer before but this one sounds so much better!

  6. I got a sample of this when I ordered some things online and it's good as a primer but it is full of shimmery golden particles so not for the faint hearted! Looked great once I'd finished my foundation on top of it

  7. This product sound so good!! Love to use it!!

  8. I adore the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer as I have quite dry skin, so this sounds great for adding an extra glow, too. I imagine it could look amazing underneath foundation, used on the high-points of the face, so I can't wait to give it a try!

  9. I really want to buy this!

  10. I absolutely love this primer! It's so beautiful, especially when you've got some foundation over it!
