Mineral Veil - null
The mineral veil itself was great; however, I purchased the tinted one, and I felt the tinted one was too much color for me in the winter. I do get very pale though, but it looked almost like a bronzer on my face. I wasn't expecting this. I wouldn't have minded as much about the intense color, but it looked very orange on my face. Next time I will just go with the original finish. If you are looking to combine your mineral veil and bronzer though, this may be a good option for you!
For a completely flawless finish, I use this; a product that says what it does and does what it says!
Mineral Veil - The Best!
I am 75 years old and have tried quite a number of finishing powders, but none can compare to Mineral Veil. My daughter, my sister and I all use it. There is no better finishing powder on the market today!
I really love the Illuminating Mineral Veil on this product. Having used the original veil for years, I was hesitant to make a switch to a different "version" so to speak. The illuminating version of this product really creates a natural glow. It makes your skin look fresh and clean and creates a natural shimmer that really highlights your face.
Because I have naturally oily skin (that is infinitely worse in the summertime!), I love applying a thin layer of Mineral Veil before I apply my foundation; this helps give the foundation a smooth base (making it look more natural), and helps absorb the oils, keeping my face feeling clean and dry (hallelujah!). I also love using this as a touchup throughout the day to help absorb the midday shine, and give my face that soft look again.
Tip: Make sure to regularly clean the any brush that applies the Mineral Veil (especially if you're like me with multiple touch-ups); the oils from your face will get trapped in the bristles, which will make your face breakout more often.
Tip: This is great to apply as a safety if you've applied too much blush/bronzer/highlighter - it helps diffuse the intensity.
i love the way this makes my skin glow and look refreshed. being in my mid 40's my makeup habits have changed and I feel like i found something that helps my skin look better without being over done. great product.
Excellent product; high quality; subtle
I do not like to feel like I'm wearing make-up, and I don't want people to look at me and think, "Oh, nice job on the makeup." I want people to look at me and think, "Oh wow, she looks so pretty." Well, BareMinerals makes ME look nice. My husband didn't realize I wore makeup until after we got married, and he saw me put on my makeup. Mineral veil and the foundation are so seamless and subtle that they aren't noticeable; It just looks like I look like this. Also, I have rosacea and really sensitive, acne prone skin. Using this makeup in no way exacerbates those problems. (I have done A LOT of experimentation with other products which do exacerbate my skin issues). The original foundation combined with mineral veil gives me exactly the coverage and soft tone that I want. And btw, on my wedding day, I still used my regular makeup routine of BareMinerals - basic foundation and mineral veil; that is a big deal. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.
A Must Have
I have this in both original and tinted and love them both. Original does seem to wash out my skin a touch during the summer, even when using a feather light brush, which is where tinted comes in! Tinted added a dash of color to my medium to tan skin and gives off a nice polished look to my makeup. Original is great for the late fall to winter when my skin has lost its tan and tinted looks a little bit too dark. Over all, this is a must have mineral product. It does everything it claims to do.
I've been using the tinted Mineral Veil for a number of years and just switched to the hydrating version. My make up, at the end of the business day, still looks pretty darn good. I always looked shiny by noon with both the tinted veil and the compact versions.
I need this every day!
I had run out of mineral veil, and thought that it didn't make that much of a difference. So I waited a week or two to replace it, and continued using the foundation powder like I normally would. The week after I resumed wearing mineral veil I received SO many compliments on my skin and complexion. Someone described my skin as translucent! You should know that I don't think I have great skin - I struggle with intermittent acne, inconsistent skin color, and so on. The mineral veil made a big difference in smoothing out and evening the color that my foundation already provided. I'll never go without it now!
