Mineral Veil Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25 - null
Perfect for dry older skin in place of a foundation makeup
I have dry flakey skin on my cheeks, now that I am in my mid-fifties. I use a facial moisturizer, the Prime Time pre-foundation primer first. Then I apply tinted Mineral Veil in place of a foundation. It gives my skin a smooth flawless look.
I really wanted to like this. I always perferred the Original Mineral Veil to the Tinted MV even though they have the same ingredients. Having the 25 SPF would be a bonus! It made me look like a ghost! I'm a fair-skinned African American (Halle Berry's complexion) and I tried to mix it with Faux Tan and other BE products but I still looked like I wore a white mask!
This product is amazing!
I have used this product for a couple of years now. I have used it to blend my cheek color with my foundation color, and as a finishing powder. But what I use it for the most is to mix with my cheek color before it ever is applied to my face. You see, my skin color is such a delicate shade of fair, that I must dilute the cheek color to get just the right shade for my skin tone. It works perfectly for that.
At first i didn't realize how amazing this product truly was. I saw that it completely took care of the oily problem but i didn't realize how much it really held my makeup in place until i ran out! The one thing is it does go fast so i would like a larger size so i wouldn't have to order it as often.
Needs To Be Bigger
You guys, I love this powder. It's probably my favorite of all the BM makeup line. The only thing is it's so freaking tiny for something that you use all over your face and for touch ups and whatnot. You end up using quite a bit, and I'm running out of this before any of my other products.
I did see that every so often BM has a promotion for a larger one. It also comes with a brush, which I have but hey, replacement brush. It's about $10 more, but I might invest in that once I'm out!
Product is great, packaging is not
I love the powder - pretty much hate the container. I so hope they address two issues with this product: the size is WAY TOO SMALL for everyday use -- it is a waste of plastic when you have to keep reordering. Not good for a company supposedly concerned about overall health and being conscious about the environment. There's a disconnect here. Secondly, it is very hard to operate the "filter level" with the tiny holes to get the product. It takes so long to get to the powder, especially toward the end when there's not much left. But you get so little of the powder originally, I feel like I want to use all of it. Please redesign this product packaging! And please make available the 28g size, which I got in some "special offer" and could not get again. So frustrating on many levels. But as I said, I love the product and how it is actually healthy makeup. That is the reason I am committed to this product and the other loose powders.
I have so many of the different types mineral veils it's not even funny. They all have their uses and work well!
perfect touch up
Mineral veil is the finial perfect last touch up when applying make up. It gives me a luminous glow and blends everything together. Thus, achieving a naturally radiant even skin-tone!
This is a necessity I have at all times, if you dont feel like re-applying your foundational powder, just go for this.
The best places to use is your T-zone = forhead, nose, cheekbones - dive slightly under the eyes and on both sides of the nose, and lastly the chin,
LOVE this product in the originial form.
Possibly my favourite bareMinerals product!
I LOVE my Mineral Veil spf 25. Love it! I usually put on my bareSkin foundation, then I use concealer if necessary as well as Stroke of Light under my eyes, and put Mineral Veil on before I do my face colours. It is amazing - it completely sets the liquid foundation and puts a beautiful polish on everything else. Plus, I absolutely love the fact that it's spf 25 because I know my face is protected as long as I'm wearing it. In fact, I went to Italy on my honeymoon and while I was there, unless I went swimming, I hardly ever wore "traditional" sunscreen on my face (and we were walking outside all day, every day) - I just used this, and re-applied throughout the day, and never once got a sunburn on my face. So amazing.
I LOVE this powder. I put it on over my foundation, and sometimes will use it as a touch up later in the day.
