READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
I was using a setting spray until i discovered...
Okay so I've been a bare minerals/escentuals addict since high school so that would be about 4 years now. I never touched this stuff because I always thought powdering my nose and wearing POWDER as a setting formula could never work, it'll crease and diminish throughout the day. Well I was WRONG. This veil in deep has been pretty much the ying to my yang. I still love my hydrating Kat Von D setting spray but this right here...this veil right here.. it beats all odds. I'm between complex climates as well from California to Missouri, so stagnant beautiful weather to HUMID AWFUL AWFULNESS. lol ..
I love this, thanks to Jessica at the St. Louis Galleria Mall, I most likely will only use the other setters if I swim or something. Also This setting veil reduces the amount of sweat on my face. It's pretty much perfect, and compact.. fits everywhere. And I love the little plush powder pad that comes in it. Cute.
Great to touch-up after work
This works very well to refresh my make up after work. Makes me look less tired!
I wish there was a replacement cartridge instead of just tossing the container and buying a new one each time.
READY Mineral Veil
I just purchased this yesterday. I'm not crazy about it at this point. We'll see. I would like to see this one come in the Hydrating formula and in a Brightening formula unless I overlooked this one. I have been a BM user for about 12 years and generally love the product line with the exception of too many shimmery eye shadows. I would like to see a few more that are matte and one that have a very subtle shimmer.
Never leave home without it!
As an acne sufferer, I am so excited about all of the foundations and finishing powders by Bare Minerals.
I am especially in love with this product the most! It is extremely important for me to make sure I have broad spectrum coverage, to prevent hyper pigmentation due to the medications that I use on my face to lighten the scaring from residual adult acne. However, it's also hard to find a product that will not clog your pores. Well ladies, not only does this provide the broad spectrum to protect us from the sun and further darkening of acne blemishes, but it also provides you with a flawless finished looking complexion!
I literally never leave home without this product. I use it after moisterizing my face, if I just want to step out without any additional make up on, and it provides protection and a great looking complexion!
I also use this if I decide to wear make up as a finishing powder. A lot of people probably use on top of thier makeup, but I use directly after applying foundation, and then apply the rest of my make up, like eyeshadow, blush and the likes. It gives a very clean and finished look, while giving the appearance of minimizing pores.
Most importantly...NO BREAKOUTS!!!! :)
Like I said ladies...Never leave home without it.
My only disappointment, is that they do not carry the same shades in the loose Mineral Veil® Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25. I really like the feel of the loose Mineral Veil, but it only comes in transluscent and tinted. I use this product in TAN, and it matches just perfectly with my complexion. I tried the loose Mineral Veil in TINTED, but I had to return it, as it gave my face a fake reddish tanned look. It's a shame that this only comes in 2 shades.
I really wish they'd create the loose Mineral Veil® Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25 in the same shades as this Ready Touch Up Veil, because not only does it feel really nice, but it has a better Broad Spectrum SPF coverage of 25 vs. the 15 you get with this product.
However, I will continue to use this product, regardless, because it has been great to me, in more ways that one!
I give this four hearts, becuase I wish it came in the same shade, with a loose veil & SPF 25
Works Well with bareSkin Foundation
I recently started using BareMinerals bareSkin foundation in Bare Shell 02 for the summer. I have tried setting it with both the READY touch up veil in medium and the loose powder Mineral Veil in original. I think that this works a little bit better. This does add a little bit of extra color, so like foundation, you may have to switch through the seasons. The compact itself seems nice and sturdy with a simple, classic look. However, the puff that comes inside has a weird smell to it, so I will not be using that.
My favorite setting powder
The best setting powder!! So glad it came out with different shades (i use Medium). Didn't like the translucent one as it showed a white cast on my medium skintone. Love that it comes in a pressed powder compact because i can't stand the mess of loose powders. It also helps control my oily skin. I currently use it to set my BareSkin brightening serum foundation, which I also love!
Prefer the Tinted Option
I had to replace my tinted Ready Touch Up Veil and was surprised to find it now comes in six shades. I'm warm tan and purchased this in the new tan shade, but the old tinted option was better. I can see these shades not working for everyone. I hope by the time I need to replace this one that a tinted option will be back. It was hard to go wrong with the previous options.
Life changer for me!
I got this product in Translucent, so it is basically like Mineral Veil in a compact. It makes touch ups on the go so easy! All I need is my retractable brush and I can do 30 second touch ups that completely refresh my skin. I know other people like the versions that have a little bit of color to them because it just gives them that little bit of added coverage as well. If you love Mineral Veil but just want a mess-free way to apply it, whether in your bathroom as part of your morning routine or on the run, you need to try this product!!
I love this product very much. Its superb!!!
Need to get "Tinted"
Not sure why you changed your colors in your Finishing powders #Touch up Veil#, but Im very diappointed. I have used Bare Minierals for a couple of years now and I usually dont have any complaints, but now I do. I have been using the Tinted color in the Touch up Veil for a while now and I love it... I dont like wearing a lot of makeup and this was just the perfect shade. I could put my moisturizer on and my Tinted touch up veil on in the mornings and go.... Now Im not sure what color to use... They all seem to be to light or to dark. It makes me sad but it looks like I will looking elsewhere for what little make-up I do where.... :(
