Mineral Veil - null
I was introduced to the mineral veil about a year ago and I wear it every day! I absolutely love how beautiful it makes my skin look! Most days I wear a little blush and the veil and my skin looks luminous! I can skip the bb creams and foundations but I cannot go without the mineral veil. I have combination skin and the veil makes all the shine disappear! I like to keep a small sample size in my purse for touch ups. You really must try it! Stop by for a sample and you will love the way your skin will look!
Not for any kind of dry or aging skin
I purchased a bare escentuals kit after reading their advertisement how fabulous the product was for aging and face lines.
Definitely a huge waste of money. I followed the dvd 3 times to make sure I was doing this right as my skin looked 10 years older.
It is for sure for people who have perfect skin. If you have any dry areas or face lines they increase 200%
The Perfect Finishing Touch
I love using Mineral Veil! It is the perfect finishing touch for my face.
The one product that kept me coming back.
I have actually gone through 3 of these over the years. I can't use the original foundation because of the bismuth, but this powder works wonderfully for finishing any makeup look! I have tried other brands mineral finishing powders and dusts and either the color or texture or something is off and I keep coming back to this! I have fair to light skin and I feel that this helps brighten my skin slightly as well as add a nice soft focus finish over my mineral or liquid foundation in any brand! It may not be the least expensive, but definitely not the most expensive loose powder you could try, but I have found it to be the best for my sensitive dry skin! Just remember when using any powder on your face to really hydrate your skin well before and you will have no problems!
I love mineral veil. I've used 2 different shades over the years and both have worked very well for me. I think if you try it, you will love it too
In small amounts it's awesome
I am 26 and have oily skin so the idea of a shimmering powder did not seem appealing, but I wanted to try it. It's actually great, except I use a tiny bit less than the original veil so that my skin won't be shiny. I personally don't think it's too shimmery, but that may be because I don't use much at a time.
way too shining
I like the original version, so was very excited to try the illuminating. I wish I had listened to the other reviews here... It is just way TOOOO SHINING !! I think I will get a hydrate one and use the illuminating one as a highlighter...
Can't live without
I love the original MV. When I first purchased the original foundation 12 years ago I used it alone and I wasn't impressed. Then I went back to the botique and purchased the original MV. I've never used this product as a finisher b/c it seemed counter intuitive to put white powder on top of foundation so I've always used it as a base and what a difference. For some reason it adds coverage to the foundation. The foundation does not look the same without MV as a base.
I have not sensitive skin, but hyper-sensitive skin and I can't use many makeups. I've tried all brands and I always come back to BE b/c MV is comfortable, a great base, and great for hyper-sensitive skin.
DON'T EVER STOP MAKING ORIGINAL BE PRODUCTS. MY SKIN HATES THE READY LINE.
I have extremely dry skin, and was disappointed the first time I used the bare minerals foundation and this veil as they seemed to really accentuate my dry patches. I was applying this mineral veil beneath my foundation as I have been told that can help relieve the itchiness that newbies get when first using bare minerals. It is true that my face seems less itchy when using this beneath my foundation. BUT, I absolutely cannot use it to go over my foundation because it makes my face look horribly dry. I am not sure if it is a particular ingredient in this that is causing this reaction, but it is just awful and totally ruins the work I have put into my foundation. Really wish I could have the experience most people have with this, that it would finish everything beautifully, but it is just not the case for me. Maybe I can try the hydrating one in the future, but for now I am probably going to have to search for a different product to finish my face with (such as a setting spray).
This product feels great over my bareSkin foundation and really does provide a smooth, finished look! I was actually pretty surprised with how nice it finished everything off. However, it did not set the bareSkin foundation quite as well as the READY touch up veil. But this is still a great product and provides a nice finish!
Perfect Finishing Powder
I have the original and I love it. This item is a must-have step for a flawless complexion. It helps to give your face the "natural make-up" look. I don't know how else to describe it except that it just makes everything look soft and blended on your face, very natural. And if you use the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener, this is a must-have to go along with that. Literally makes the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes disappear!
Sometimes I'll just wear the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener and the original mineral veil, or just the original foundation and the original mineral veil, if I'm feeling really lazy.
I'm excited to try the hydrating one next time!
can be without this
this is more than a finishing powder, I use it both with makeup and just a quick dusting if I am going out and don't have time to put on makeup. It gives my skin a luminous glow and covers imperfections without looking cake-y. Fantastic product.
Makeup bag ESSENTIAL right here!
This powder is perfect to finish off your makeup look every morning. It goes on so softly, gives you a soft matte finish and keeps everything in place all day. It just gives your skin a gorgeous finish! This product is tried and true, you won't regret making this purchase because you will use it at least once a day!
Hydrating Mineral Veil
I have all of the BE face/eye products and I love them all. The last thing I purchased was the hydrating mineral veil, which I adore. For me it was between the illuminating and the hydrating because I wanted a little shimmer, but I wanted natural. The illuminating was a little bit too sparkly for me, but the hydrating has plenty of shimmer. It's like a toned-down illuminating. It soaks up any excess oil and leaves such a dewey and natural looking finish. I absolutely love it.
I like how finished my makeup looks when I end with the mineral veil. I also like that on a day when I'm in a hurry or want to look gently polished without the full makeup I can use the veil alone with just a touch of blush and go! Will be a go to plan for summer.
A bit chalky...
I have been using Mineral Veil since I first started with BE. Normally I have used the Illuminating Mineral Veil, but while in a boutique recently I thought I would give the hydrating formula a try. It does have a bit of sparkle in it, which is something I love about the Illuminating formula. However, for me this product feels a bit chalky when being applied and bit "rough" if you will. That being said, it still works wonders to even and freshen everything up, and while I don't feel that it is necessarily more "hydrating" it still looks flawless. Not sure yet if I would purchase this formula again or stick with my go to.
Tinted is Amazing
I have been using the tinted mineral veil since I was 18. I love it. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts and this product does not irritate my skin at all. It is lightweight and does not feel like you have anything on your face. Will continue to use this for many years to come.
Try it UNDER your foundation
The mineral veil came with my starter kit and I used it on top of my foundation just to set and hydrate a little bit. I was experiencing some itchiness, which my local makeup counter informed me was because the foundation has a mineral in it that helps to turn over and shed dead skin cells (GROSS!) and that my skin would get used to this eventually and the itching would stop. She suggested that I try a little of the mineral veil UNDER my foundation until I get used the products and let me tell you, that helped a lot! Plus my skin looks a little more luminous!
Fantastic and Messy
I love this to death makes my makeup perfection and my face glows. The container is very messy and flies everwhere though.
I used the mineral matte foundation and mineral veil almost daily for about 1 month. Coverage was okay but felt I needed to touch it up throughout my 9 hr workday. It is somewhat itchy with normal activity but I go for a run each day after work so my makeup is still on. I found it is very itchy especially when I work up a sweat. I wanted to rip my skin off. Also started breaking out on forehead and jawline which is unusual for me. I chose to look into another mineral product, which I absolutely love!!! No more itching and coverage seems even better. I've had it on for 8 1/2 hours so far today
and no need for a touch up yet.
I love this one better than the regular mineral veil because it gives
my face a little more brighter finish with a very slight sparkle.
Love this product!
I can't say enough good things about this product. It has so many uses and makes my skin so soft and look perfect. I recommend to everyone!
This product goes on smoothly and adds the perfect finish. I love it. It is so light weight you don't even know that you have it on.
Love love LOVE this!
Finally, a powder that doesn't go on cakey and streaked. Even if more than one coat is applied, it never looks glommed on and it isn't noticeable in any way. It makes a sheer beautiful finish to my make-up routine.
Best powder ever
This powder is amazing. For those days when you don't need full coverage and your skin is oily I use this mineral veil and it's awesome. It blends in so well you don't even notice it's there yet it covers everything you need to cover! I have it in the original and I love it I can see myself using this product for a long time!
Get the one you are looking for
I have used BE for two years now and Mineral Veil is a must have product for those of us with oily skin. The original is my favorite; it soften and gives the illusion of great skin. Also, I love the tip about applying Mineral Veil before foundation to absorb oil--brilliant!
I have also used the tinted and illuminating formulas.
I have fair skin (usually Fairly Light) so when I bought the tinted mineral veil, I knew I was taking a risk, not trying it at the store first. I got it in the spring and loved it! There was enough color to warm up my skin, without the overbearing color in the regular warmth product. Plus, I used the tinted mineral veil in place of the original veil and another all-over color or bronzer. This was wonderful for the warmer months!
When it got cooler, I thought I would try the illuminating mineral veil. This one isn't for me, at least not for everyday use. It is very sparkly/shimmering in color. As soon as I opened it I was skeptical. I didn't care for how sparkly my face was. Maybe if I was going out it would seem more appropriate. I'm going back to original mineral veil, where I was happy.
There are lots of great products here: all silky smooth application and they last a long time.
Illuminating Mineral Veil
I tried it at a Bare Minerals Boutique and it gives me a youthful brighter glow. Also it helps look less like I'm wearing foundation. I am switching from the plain original now.
Illuminating Mineral Veil
I love how this makes my skin glow!
The mineral veil gives your face a beautiful glow! It is silky and radiant! I love when I accidently put on too much blush/bronzer, that I don't have to completely redo my makeup! I just buff on a normal amount of mineral veil and it dulls the color perfectly! I am so glad that I was introduced to this product!
Once I realized that I can use it UNDER my makeup to control oil in my T-zone (and boy howdy, it's like a flowing grease slick there), I was amazed! My makeup went on so smoothly, controlled the oil all day and still looked pretty good before bed. MUCH better than wearing it over the makeup. LOVE it, will be buying more soon.
