Mineral Veil - null
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.
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!
Won't go without it!
I absolutely love this product. It is one of the best finishing powders I have ever used. It serves so many purposes. In the summer, I use it over my tinted moisturizer, and always to finish my makeup, to give it the airbrush look. Even when I'm at home without makeup, I use it, just to give me that finished look. I will never be without it. Thanks for such a wonderful product.
Awesome - but not great for acne
This product is wonderful!!! However, it actually broke me out because of the corn starch in it... If it wasn't for that this product would be perfect for me! Maybe I'll give the Hydrating veil a try :)
Works great with BE oil free primer!
I didn't think I needed this product but, I broke down and purchased it with the oil free primer and loose powder foundation and concealer. Huge difference compared to foundation alone! It's now a must for me for every special occasion or long day or night out!
Adds the perfect finishing touch!
When I first heard about Mineral Veil, I thought it would be a complete waste of money. Oh, how wrong I was! My Mineral Veil adds the final touch to my face to leave it looking flawless, air brushed, and silky. It also has just a slight shimmer to it that makes my skin look so healthy it glows!
When I first purchased my Bare Minerals kit I was blown away by how this mineral veil worked. It blended all of the makeup together and made my skin look flawless and felt light as a feather on my face. I will never put on my foundation again without adding this veil on top!
Love, Love, Love Tinted Mineral Veil
I have used the tinted mineral veil for many, many years now. I am asked how I keep my complexion looking so good....I always say a light moisturizer everyday and tinted mineral veil for my foundation. I will be 50 in a couple of months and have friends who think I am in my 30s! The tinted mineral veil provides enough color and coverage to do the trick. I will continue to use this product as long as they make it.
Amazing, but not... I'll explain
I have gotten this in the original formula as well as the tinted one.
The original formula essentially does little, in my opinion. Sure its a nice soft finishing powder, but could I live without it? Yes. Does it blur my fine lines or imperefctions? Eh, not so much really. Plus it makes me appear slightly more 'ghosty' than I normally do.
The TINTED one however, holy moly! It's like a WORLD of difference! Now, I say a world of difference in reference to finishing powders of course haahahaha..... It gives the slightest bit of color, just enough to really make your face look amazing.
The tinted one, GREAT - the original one, I could live without.
Tinted mineral veil awesome for touch ups!
Got the tinted mineral veil with a flawless face case. Best purchase yet! I use it for light touch ups when I get oily. Because its tinted it blends nicely with my fairly medium foundation and makes it look like I just applied my makeup and removes all traces of shine! I love it!
A little goes a long way
Love the illuminating mineral veil. When I first used the veil I made the mistake of applying it like I would foundation, big mistake, was as white as a ghost. Truly only a little tiny bit is needed and will cover the whole face perfectly, really does minimize the look of pores , left with a beautifully smooth surface.
Illuminating Veil Creates Perfection
My skin is very combination, and I recently switched from the regular veil (which I also loved) to the illuminating veil. I LOVE the illuminating veil! It covers imperfections so well, and it adds a beautiful glow to my face that no other product has ever created. It looks super shimmery at first, but it really blends well with the other BE powders and just makes your skin look perfectly dewy and glowing. I love it!
Love it! It is my go to powder whether it is only the Veil, over my liquid foundation, or with my Bare Mineral makeup. Does a great job of covering all my imperfections. I use the tinted and it also adds a touch of color. PERFECT!
My favorite product!
I adore this product. It gives just the right hint of a glow. Also great to use on the decolette and shoulders. So light and airy with a delicious shimmer.
I love this product
I used the finishing powder from another company and loved it. Then I tried Mineral Veil and the difference was night and day. I use the Bare Minerals Concealer and love it. Then I wear the Mineral Veil instead of foundation. It makes my skin look and feel so good that no one knows I am not wearing foundation. And it stays on until I take it off. Will never go without this product on hand.
Use This Product Every Day!
I love mineral veil, I use it every day and it looks and feels great on my skin. It really helps minimizes my pores and it gives my a healthy and perfect complexion!
Not worth it
I read some of the reviews when I bought this, I like to get feedback before buying. I really like bareminerals and I have been really impressed with most other products I've bought. I was so excited about this product that I over looked the negative feedback and went for it. I have acne which isnt terrible but enough that i use concealer to hide imperfections. For someone with flawless skin already, I bet this product would be great. This product seemed unnecessary to even put on. It left too much powder residue on my skin and yet my imperfections where even more noticeable. I am not a fan.
Not good for aging skin
Too much glitter, enhances any wrinkles . Did not expect that when I ordered it.
i like this veil
I like the mineral veil. it sets and helps the foundation to stay in place all day. it can be used over or under your blush and bronzer. i have oily skin and i am very picky about my products.
Fabulous product! Perhaps redesign the container.
This product is great! I have combination skin and it is difficult to find a moisturizer that fully hydrates the dry areas without causing more blemishes. I get blemishes towards my hairline and on the top of my nose and dry flaky patches at the base of my nose, (usually only in the winter, but my skin is dry otherwise.) I started using this product in the middle of the winter along with my normal facial lotion for extra moisture, because I live in Michigan in an area with low humidity. The dry, flaky patches that were around my nose disappeared in less than three weeks! AND it didn't cause me to develop blemishes. Now that summer temperatures are on their way in, I've added toner to my daily facial cleansing routine. Before I started using this product, I used toner every other day during the summers, so my routine hasn't been forced to change much.
The powder has yellow/neutral undertones as opposed to the original mineral veil's pink/warm undertones. This allows me to choose what type of finish I want to have on my skin, which has slightly olive undertones, (I use medium beige foundation.) The powder also has more shimmer to it than the original, but that is not noticeable when it is applied. It is a great way to add a little variety to your usual makeup routine!
The only real issue I have with this product is the container. The powder is so fine, (possibly finer than the original mineral veil, but I'm not sure), and the hole for dispensing it is so large, I feel like I waste a lot every time I use it! In four months, I used approximately 1.5 grams of the original mineral veil and in the same time, I used approximately 3 grams of the hydrating mineral veil. Some attention to the container design might be worth looking into in order to make the customer feel like they're getting a better value!
But overall, it is a wonderful product!!!
I love the mineral veil. It is one of my favorite products that I use daily. It gives my face a flawless and fresh finish.
