Mineral Veil - null
I love the bare minerals and mineral veil makeup, but I'm going to complain about the packaging. I originally had the starter kit, and once that ran out, I purchased the larger version of the mineral veil. You are supposed to tap out a small amount into the cap, but every time I so much as tilt the mineral veil, a ton of it slips out and goes everywhere. Now this is not just the first time I'm using it, it's every single time. Not sure what changed between the last one I had, and this version, but it doesn't make it easy on my mornings having to clean up mineral veil off everything.
Doesn't have desired effect
I've been using BE products for 5 years. I bought the mineral veil when I first started purchasing BE foundation. When I use it immediately after putting on foundation, I actually notice my T-zone becomes oilier later on as opposed to not using it. However, when I apply it later on, after I am a little oiler, it does take the oiliness away. It gives a dusty look to my face, in my opinion, and kind of has a counter-effect to the "warmth" product. I haven't noticed that it works for me like the site claims that it should. I won't buy this again. It does last a long time though.
I love the loose mineral veil. I use it before I put my foundation on and then I use it again for final coverage. I get so many complements on how good I look. All the products used together make the difference. This is the first time I have enjoyed using beauty products!!
A Must Have!!
I am so glad I tried this product! I have combination skin, but I fight oil. This is the most amazing product. Whether I wear it over BB Cream, or under Bare Minerals Foundation, it gives me a flawless, polished look that is hard for me to ever pull off given the oily nature of my skin! I stay looking less oily all day long, and even when I use the oil blot sheet mid-day as I do, I find less oil on it! Definitely a product I will continue using!
I love the shimmer this product finishes my face with each morning and I don't feel like a sparkling tween! This product gives a great glow without looking childish, however my 17 yr old cousin rocks this product too!
The original foundation and warm are great products, some mornings though, I skip warm and just add the mineral veil, because it gives such a 3 dimensional look, that I don't feel I even need the warm. I just love every BE product!
The perfect finishing touch for everyone.
Even if I run out of Bare Essentials mineral foundation, this makes any make-up look good. Just apply and polish as usual. Love It!
I have problems with my skin coloration...red, brown, and white splotches...along with semi-oily skin. I use the matte foundation, a BUNCH of concealer, and then LOVE the way the mineral veil tops it all off. I feel confident and beautiful without the weight of other foundations. The mineral veil works great to hide/absorb oil/shine throughout the day too!!
This powder really gives a photo ready finish. Legit soft focus! I have light to medium acne and after i apply the foundation and this mineral veil, they almost disappear. my photos come out pretty, and I don't have to "photoshop" my acne away anymore! Only problem is Anytime I don't wear this makeup people at work ask if I'm sick lol.
Mineral veil keeps its promise!
I love this product. It keeps it's promise especially during the summer when make up from the past would have melted off! Bare essentials mineral veil stays put.
Great finishing powder
I really like the Mineral Veil when combined with my regular liquid foundation. It gives it a really nice finish.
Best Overall Product
This product totally brings everything together. It is a must have! Helps minimize my pores big time, while putting the finishing blending touches onto concealer, foundation, and all-over face color. Makes you look like you're photo shoot ready every time!
Love it - love it - love it!
Love bare minerals. Have used the original and the tinted....love both
Makes My Skin Look Silky Smooth!
This is the best loose setting powder I have ever used. I use this to set my BM foundation, and then use the pressed mineral veil "Ready Veil" in translucent for touch-ups throughout the day (I have very oily skin). This controls oil SO well, and offers a poreless, matte, airbrushed look (no easy task for oily skin like mine).The tinted veil works for me in the summer when I'm tan, but if you're lighter than medium skintone, it may be too dark for you. I have repurchased, several times. Make's skin look so smooth and beautiful!
I have used Mineral Veil for years & won't use anything else. It goes on so smooth and it is just the perfect finishing touch to my make-up. Before I tried Bare Essentials I had problems with my skin being dry or broken out, but not since I have been using Bare Essential products. I LOVE BARE ESSENTIALS.
I used bareMinerals years ago.. stopped then recently I've come back to it. There is NO getting around it, bareMinerals is one of the best make ups around. It lasts forever and it covers up so naturally. I love it and just purchased a compact for cheek colors. Love that too.. great to throw in your purse.
Anyway, I'm back.. I've learned!!!!
I just look better
Since I switched to Bare Mineral makeup - I just look better.
Thank you for these products
product okay but packaging needs work
i have had a lot of difficulty getting the right amount of this product to come out of the holes. mostly too much comes out and then the container is filled with it and i have to pour it back. then when i limit it to just one hole not enough comes out and i shake it and end up with too much again. so something needs to be adjusted. maybe the hole sizes should be smaller since the powder is so fine. when you use too much it looks ghostly on you and a little too shimmery. so getting the amount right is essential. otherwise i like it okay. it does minimize pores somewhat. and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin like any other kind of skin makeup from anywhere else does.
I've been using Bare Escentuals for 7 years - Mineral Veil is always the final touch. I also use it as a touch up late in the day.
Love this Powder!
I first tried Bare Escentuals/bareMinerals foundation in their lightest color in 2007. I loved it and still do. I also purchased the Mineral Veil. It is a great powder finish. I use it on any brand of foundation I might use and it looks great.
I still prefer bareMinerals foundation as my main go-to foundation. My skin has gotten a bit dry over the past couple of years. I had oily skin as a teen and in my 20s. 30s & 40s I had T-Zone skin. In my 50s normal skin (yea!). Then once I first entered my 60s my skin became more dry. So the next time I purchase Mineral Veil I'll purchase the hydrating type.
I am young with acne and some powders or foundations will cause even more acne with BE I don't have to worry about it . I was using the clinque powder ,it darkened my skin and didn't cover well, I switched to mineral veil and am so happy with the results!My skin feels amazing when it's on and when I take it off. I used to believe you didn;t need powder well boy I was wrong it makes so much of a difference. Thanks BE!
Never Leave Home Without It
This has got to be the best powder I have ever used! I really love this stuff, I never ever leave home without my Mineral Veil. Gives you the best visable pore reduction of any other product i`ve found yet plus such a beautiful glow. I just ordered the pressed powder compact so i dont make such a mess in my purse...cant wait.
Been using MV over 10 years
I use MV over bare skin (with a little concealer) and get complements every time on my 'poreless' complexion and glow. Also Pure Radiance as blush.
i love this, it does totally give you that flawless put together look, it completes the whole look...
I finish my look every day with Mineral Veil. It gives my face an absolutely flawless, fresh, gorgeous look! I highly recommend this product to everyone.
Love Mineral Veil- Completes My Face!
I love mineral veil. It goes on smooth, and gives my face a cool feeling. Very nice product. Never leave home without it.
Love this! I have always had a problem with shine, but a base layer of mineral veil completely takes care of it! Also love the soft finish it gives to my look.
When I wear the mineral veil, I am constantly complimented on my complexion. In pictures my skin looks air brushed-like a model or actress. I feel so beautiful!
very good for face
never better when it comes to make-up. i love it.
I cannot live without it!
Mineral Veil is a must have. It absorbs oil and gives you that air-brushed look.
I really enjoy all of the BE products, however, I do not like the locking lid because I found (with all the products with the locking lids) that powder would get stuck inside the locking twist and prevent me from opening it. I ended up buying a whole new set without the locking lids without even using all of the original set because the lids would no longer open. Other then the lid, the product was good.
