Mineral Veil - null
Love the Illuminating Veil
I have been using Bare Minerals for around 10 years. I have used nearly all the Veils and they are all wonderful. The Illuminating is amazing. It has a shimmer to it, so I may not recommend for older skin, but it's not overly shimmering. It gives a glow to your skin, a subtle sparkle that just makes you look awake and fresh. I feel beautiful when I wear it. Give it a try. The Hydrating Veil is great during the winter because it gives my chapped skin a drink of water feel. The Original is always great. I carry a little of the Original with me as a touch up (which I rarely need because BE is so amazing!!)
I was worried about trying this as my skin is very dry...don't think twice! It seems to melt into your skin instead of laying on top it it and looking 'cakey'. The very very subtle 'glow' it gives your complexion is wonderful, not 'shiny' or even 'dewy' looking, more a look of Health. Frequently I'll wear it all by itself for a real natural look, try it...you will probably love the flawless and finished look of your skin.
A must have!
I love using this before and after I apply my bare minerals matte foundation!
Fab start to finish
It is so easy to use. Doesn't settle into my lines and doesn't make me look older.Helps with my oily T-Zone. I am a "mature" woman and I like the soft gauze like finish it puts on my skin that makes everything look moist and fresh.
Perfect finishing touch
The Mineral Veil gives the perfect finish for the face. It is pretty much invisible but gives that special something to the face.
Absolutely love it! It makes my skin look very smooth and soft and it's really easy to use. I don't know if it's mineral veil's magic or not...my face usually gets quite oily towards the end of the day, but, with mineral veil, no more shiny/oily face!
My only complain is that the powder is so fine that it flies everywhere when I apply it... it gets on my shirt and counter :(
Does its job well
The mineral veil is light and helps set your makeup. It works pretty well. I don't use the primer so it might work better if I used them both.
Be warned: it's a very fine powder and you don't need to open the container all the way to get it out. I only uncover one of the four holes and that still gets plenty in the cap.
I am really glad that I had started using different BE products sequentially versus at the same time because I think I would have been more hesitant to try some after my experience with mineral veil. I had started using the skin care products for about a month and my skin was responding well. Then I had started using the original foundation for about one and a half weeks and my skin was still responding well. Then I tried the original mineral veil and the first two days of usage were great as I liked the flawless finish it provided. Days three and four were not good at all as my skin started to break out; I stopped using the product at which point my skin slowly began to heal. Although I don't know for sure, I suspect it was the cornstarch in the product that clogged my pores and, if you have acne-prone skin, putting cornstarch on your face may provide any bacteria there with food to grow. It could not have been the brushes I was using as the foundation brush had not even been used for 2 weeks and the brush I was using for the mineral veil was brand new. My skin has done well with other BE products and none of them have the ingredients that are in the original mineral veil as I have made a point to stay away from them. I have also switched to the matte foundation and it provides such a beautiful, natural finish and controls oil that I feel like it fulfills a lot of the same functions as the extra layer of mineral veil would do.
The mineral veil is the perfect finishing touch. It helps absorb the oil on my face, and keeps oil from being too noticeable later in the day. I swear by it!
I use the mineral veil everyday and mid day for touch ups. Really helps control shine. Great product.
