Original Mineral Veil in Mirrored Compact
Great dispensing concept, poor design
I have purchased several shades of mineral veil in the compact dispenser. The first broke, at the very flimsy hinge, within 2 days of first use. It was in as travel bag (which was a selling point for this "pack-n-go" design concept). Bare Minerals kindly replaced it. I purchased two others, which broke at the hinge even though they were carefully used and stored on my dresser. I really like the way it dispenses the product. I'm surprised this container got past research and development. I hope they bring back this concept with a stronger hinge design.
Love this product!
The compact is great as well as the brush. I also like the amount of Mineral Veil that is dispensed. It's the perfect amount I shake it once and open the lid and that's all I need.
Please keep this product!!
Love and Hate
I love how this compact dispenses the mineral veil. I bought several..some for gifts and some to keep. This compact dispenses just the right amount of mineral veil and is much easier and faster than trying to shake the mineral veil into a lid. I have tried replacing the mineral veil with foundation and it doesn't dispense as well because the foundation is not as fine of texture as the mineral veil. Wish you could also make a dispensing compact to use just for foundation. I bought these even knowing that the hinge could be a problem. I like how it dispenses that much! I hate that I had a second one broke on me very early on..now I am more concerned about giving them as gifts. Please make the hinges more durable and you would get a rating of ten hearts from me instead of only two.
I love this concept
I ALWAYS love mineral veil in ANY container! I happen to very much like this one. It dispenses JUST the right amount for me. I haven't had ANY problem with it, and who knows if I will in time, but for now, I like this container better than the regular jar. I also like the mirror in the lid. Very useful for me! I might have to buy more of them before they go away forever!
Love the way it is SUPPOSED to work
First, I've been purposefully purchasing the Mineral Veils with this kind of cap for a while, and the lid would typically only break at the very end of the product's use. The last two I bought had hinges that broke within 2 weeks of use. The main problem with this is that without the lid staying attached to the hinge, there is no way to fully close the cap and you cannot take this with you as it will spill out everywhere.
The product is great, and I love the idea of how the product is dispensed, but the manufacturer needs to beef up and reinforce the hinge, either through a better plastic and hinge piece or by making it function slightly differently (yes, I am an engineer).
I'm hoping to call BE and request a few spare caps since I travel a LOT and need working lids.
Lid hinge breaks very easily
I had the same problem as everyone else: the hinge on the lid broke after a couple of months. It was incredibly disappointing because I think it's one of best dispensing systems they have designed. It just wasn't tested thoroughly for actual use. PLEASE find a better manufacturer for this jar and re-release this! It's a great product!
Not what I expected
I really wanted to like this product bc the sifter lids have their problems and so do the twist and lock. One spills too much. The other wastes product and this one doesn't put out enough. I'm a bare mineral user since it came out and love trying new products but this just misses the mark. Love the mineral veil just not the compact. It's hard to get the powder out
Great until the lid broke
I had been looking for a mineral veil to keep in my purse that wouldn't be too messy. I got this and I loved it immediately. It worked great for a few months. And then the hinge broke. Now, the lid won't stay on at all and the whole thing sits in my vanity.
I really did love it at first. If the hinge doesn't break on you, it's a great product.
mineral veil excellent, container horrorable
mineral veil is perfect, I can't imagine a SAT without it, but the container kid broke after only a few times. It was a mess trying to get the product transferred to another container. Unfortunately, I purchased two.
