Rated 3 out of 5 by keegs218 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChloebellesMommy 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!

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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NaturalBeautyGal 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by sgrace22 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorothea76259 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Catherine 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.
Rated 2 out of 5 by tobiz999 Not good for aging skin
Too much glitter, enhances any wrinkles . Did not expect that when I ordered it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mommaof2 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by maychel 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by whambampam Perfect lighting
The mineral veil to me is the secret star of the BM product line. I switch between the original foundation & Ready, but I can never give up on my Illuminating MV. It creates the perfect finish to any look, and the glow it gives is subtle enough that it does not make you look like Edward Cullen. Cannot recommend it enough. I go through it so quickly because I like it both under & over the foundation to control shine & sweat. Also, I think it makes everything stay better throughout the whole day.

I like Bare Minerals makeup but Mineral Veil is far and away the best product in the line. It's great for setting makeup and for touch-ups.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaddington Awesome product
this is what gives the final look!! I love everything bare minerals!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JadeVJ Another go to product of BM.
I love this product. I have only ever tried the original formula and tinted. But I am really interested in the hydrating and illuminating ones as well just for a little change. I did not care much for the tinted because it has a reddish tint, and that doesn't look good on my face, so I use the faux tan over tinted mineral veil and warmth because it's more brown than red. Anyways, the original mineral veil is great because it goes on so lightly and immediately absorbs oil. If I use this when I first apply my makeup, it's rare I have to use my Ready Mineral Veil to touch up. Highly recommended, and the price is right for this finishing powder. It lasts a very long time for me.

I am now using the hydrating mineral veil and I am not sure if I like it or not. I do like the original formula and think that it is awesome.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LJandRay An Incredible Product I Have Been Using For Years"
I have been using Mineral Veil for years and years. I love this product because it hides my larger pores. No shades to worry about matching to my skin tone. Mineral Veil gives my complexion that polished appearance. It is the only cosmetic, other than lipstick or mascara, that I panic over should I run out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by miloco So soft!
I had been using mineral veil for years and loved it, but when I saw the hydrating version I decided to try it even though I had to purchase a special brush for it. Well worth it! It really makes my dry skin look smoother, I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JEAN14 GREAT AS A FOUNDATION AND NOT SHINY.
I have used Bare Minerals for years and was using the foundation, until I discovered the tinted Mineral Veil. I now use it as my foundation and it blends well on my uneven mostly medium complexion. I have slept with it on but was not concerned about it clogging my pores, since it is so pure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine95 Hydrating Mineral Veil smooth as silk
I began using the Original Mineral Veil two months ago which was great, but recently switched to Hydrating as my combination skin became dryer in spots, despite using an oil-free moisturizer. I thought the Original was a fine powder...Hydrating is even more so. It makes my skin feel smooth as silk! It has the complete day-long, air-brushed look of the Original, with hydration to boot, without looking shiny at the end of the day. I don't think I could ask for more of this product, it's a must-have. It does come out VERY quickly though, even with having only one of the sifter holes open. My recommendation to BE would be to have smaller sifter holes for extra fine products like Hydrating Mineral Veil. I LOVE my Hydrating Mineral Veil!
Rated 3 out of 5 by NJBabe HYDRATING MINERAL VEIL
I have been using mineral veil for at least 8 years and could not go without it. When the Hydrating Mineral Veil was introduced, I thought that since I have dry skin it would be better for me. I am 66 years old and don't think this is a good match for me. Regular mineral veil works great, but the hydrating mineral veil seems to settle in my lines and wrinkles whereas original mineral veil did not. I will have to order another of the original and pass the hydrating on to someone younger.

A gorgeous finishing touch to the beautiful palette put on any face! I love the different types of veil available too. I personally love the brightening and the SPF ones!

Have been using the Tinted Mineral Veil for the past 3 years. Most days this is all I use because of the easy of application. After the gym I just need to tap and go.
One of the best products out there.

a perfect finish to makeup
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine55 Great for that perfect finished look
I used to use Bare minerals, then I stopped......but now I am back for good. My skin looks great and younger (people don't believe me when I tell them my age). I don't like that overmade up look and mineral veil finishes off without that look. I cant thank all of you enough for the great products that you have!
Rated 5 out of 5 by AmBam love the hydrating mineral veil!
I really do love the hydrating mineral veil!! It amazing! It hydrate's and doesn't make me oily makes my skin glowing soft and supple! Does not break me out at all must try!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Syrinx Perfect Ending
This product really is that finishing touch that just makes your whole face come together and look radiant. It sets your makeup to stay in place. For example, I used to apply blush over my Mineral Veil thinking I would blend the blush into my face if I did blush first... blush didn't last all day. I tried putting the blush under my Mineral Veil, and to my surprise, my blush was not disturbed when I buffed the Mineral Veil over it, and it lasted all day. I wouldn't go without it :)
