Rated 5 out of 5 by VivianJenn Love this Perfecting Veil!
I really love this product. Makes my skin look super soft and silky. I always get compliments on my skin. I re-apply this product throughout the day if I get too oily. The only thing I would recommend is going a little darker in the color. I use to use the the light one and now I use the medium one. The "flash back effect" in pictures from the switch has gone down too. Also, the medium is very translucent as well so it doesn't give off too much color.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RN16 Disappointed
Normally love bareminerals but not this one. This product is not for light skin. I received this in "light to medium" several months ago and could not believe how dark it was. At first I thought I ordered the wrong shade then flipped it over to see it said "light to medium." I hoped I would get my money's worth this summer when I had a tan...even now with a good tan it is still too dark. I wear "the skinny dip" bronzer I would say it is the equivalent to that shade if not darker.
Rated 4 out of 5 by amers Perfecting Veil
I like using this product to "finish" my make up over the liquid foundation. The only "con" I have experienced is that the compact breaks after only a few usages. I am using my second one and the same thing has happened : the hinge breaks making it difficult to put all back together with the magnet in the hole, etc. Also the applicator makes it difficult to get all the make-up out. I end up with product around the edges that I can't get out because it flakes and crumbles around the edges. I think a different package would make this better. I love the product itself!
Rated 4 out of 5 by dakota1gal Great finish and wear; runs out quickly
This runs out much more quickly than the loose powder, however, the finish effect is superb. I still use the mineral veil on top of this compact powder because of my excessively oil skin. I was surprised at how much lighter this powder plus the liquid makeup feels. Very difficult, if not impossible, to use all of the product in the compact - unlike the loose powder where I can use every drop.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LeeLee2 Irritating for Sensitive Skin
I really wanted this to be my forever finishing powder but it irritated and inflamed my nearly flawless sensitive skin. After trying it for a week I fell in love and stocked up, buying extra so I would not run out. BIG MISTAKE. By week two, I had one or two small white heads and inflamed pores and just figured it was a fluke. By week four, I had 4-6 white heads in different areas of my face, easily hidden with makeup. By week six my entire forehead was irritated inflamed and itchy. Forgetting what had changed in my routine, I traced back what changed and realized it was this powder. I then spent a week researching each ingredient. Silica is the first ingredient, which is known to clog pores, so I STOPPED this immediately and my face cleared up in a couple of days. Bummed that I wasted money as I still have unopened containers of this stuff, but glad that i figured it out before it ruined my skin for good!

I'm not sure what happened but this product formulation has to been changed. Now when applied over your foundation it's awfully dark. Moved away from it now. Shame because I used to love your products. So sorry.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadaboutperfectingveil Too Dark
I bought this through the bare minerals club get started kit so my color was chosen for me according to my foundation color choice. When I opened this I was positive I had accidentally been given the wrong color. I looked on the website though and realized "light to medium" is the lightest available.
I am fairly light in in original and matte loose powder foundation, bare shell in serum foundation, clearly pearl in blemish remedy foundation, and vanilla in the complexion rescue.
The foundation and concealer colors that I received in the kit were the perfect colors, but this perfecting veil in light to medium is so many shades too dark for me. This should definitely be a medium foundation. Please make a lighter skin specific perfecting veil. I love the texture but absolutely cannot wear this!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bookishsnob Way too dark :(
I don't have pale skin by any means, but the light to medium is WAY too dark. Honestly, it should be medium and there should be a much lighter color. I went back to using the original mineral veil with my bareskin foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by blacksunempire Pretty good!
I really like this veil! I put it directly over complexion rescue to take away some of the shine from my T-zone and other areas. It blurs out things pretty well and goes on well when I use it with the Supreme Finisher Brush. When I use the pouf, it makes things look caked up.
Rated 2 out of 5 by BEobsessed This used to be my go-to finishing veil powder....now, not so much
With recent changes to the formula and color, I am so sad to say that I now have to find a new product to replace this veil, which used to be my favorite! The original formula offered lighter color options for those of us with fair skin, and even the lightest shade (light to medium) is WAY to dark and appears like a bronzer on pale skin. This is the saddest change the BE has made to products, IMO, because their original formula for this veil was AMAZING! It provided a soft, transulescent finish that was never cakey or thick. It WAS my go to, now I'm going to look elsewhere.
