I was late to the wonder of Mineral Veil until my daughter talked me into trying it. At 62, with fine, thin aging skin, I thought it would be too "ghostly" and drying also concerned about accentuating fine lines. Could not have been more wrong! Everything about this powder is right on target and I use both the luminous and the matte, depending on the particular look I am doing. I have touted this to friends who have tried, and purchased the BM line. Great appearance and my skin actually feels better with extended use. I use the ready compact for travel touch ups.

I purchased this product to use for a finishing powder. It's not like other brands I've used. It made my skin appear dry and it settled in every fine line. I absolutely love the Perfecting Veil. So I decided to give this a try. My skin is mostly oily /combination. So it making my skin appear dry was crazy considering I don't lack in moisture that much. Plus it felt very heavy.

I have been using veil for 7 years now and I will never use anything else (except other BE products). I am a light skinned person and I mix a bit of tinted Mineral Veil with my regular one to match the faux tan on my body. You see a lot of 'veils' out there, hoping to copy Mineral Veil but no one comes close. It hides imperfections (read: wrinkles and freckles) and gives a stunning finish on your face. Don't buy the wannabee's. Buy the real thing.
Rated 4 out of 5 by DimplesRD37 Great finishing powder!
I love Bare Minerals Mineral Veil. A little goes a long way so the product last awhile which is good considering the price. I ordered the illuminating veil online and did not realize it has a sparkly finish to it. I would recommend using a little and buffing it into the skin to help limit the sparkly finish. All in all, it's a great product.

This is the perfect product for oily skin especially in the summertime. I use it first under my mineral powder foundation and then lastly after all makeup is applied for a flawless look.

I struggle with my makeup separating where my glasses rest on my nose, I use this on a small concealer brush and pat over my foundation around my nose and it last all day. I also use this as an all over setting powder and think it blends beautifully. I only have a sample at the moment but definitely plan on purchasing a full size.

This is the best! ... looks so natural and adds a beautiful finish!
I have been using this product for years ... and am most satisfied!

The Mineral Veil provides that "THING" at the end that just makes everything else work. It blends everything and provides a glow in one easy step.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rozita Review of Hydrating Veil Only
I love original Mineral Veil. I'm 55 years old and my skin benefits from extra moisture, so I thought that Hydrating Mineral Veil would be a good fit. Unfortunately, it has a thick, shiny quality that highlights wrinkles and fine lines. It looks a little like I'm wearing the kind of liquid foundation that stopped using years ago when I switched to Bare Minerals. I'll be switching back to the original formula Mineral Veil.
Also, the powder is so fine that it goes *everywhere* as soon as I open the container and try to apply it.
I'm also disappointed because Hydrating Mineral Veil is SPF 20.

I use this for an extra glow after applying my foundation. It makes my skin look beautiful! I can't go without this product.

This is the first time I've tried Mineral Veil. I tried it on half my face to see the difference and boy was there one! It goes on beautifully and has full-day staying power. My skin feels soft and I had no shine through after a 10-hr day. Highly recommended! I have medium shade skin, brunette hair, green eyes and I chose the Original (translucent soft finish).
Rated 5 out of 5 by neffanimonster Literally my favorite thing ever.
It looks like it would not be able to blend with my skin with it being light pink. It goes on though and it just blends everything together and holds it all in place. It really makes a difference in my makeup. It takes me from about an 7 makeup to a 9 makeup. It is wonderful! I love this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 'Tis quite exquisite!
I recently purchased a large Mineral Veil in the Illuminating shade and I'm entirely in love with this product! The shade I chose is very light. I do my regular makeup routine & when I'm done, I use my blush brush to apply all over my face and on my neck. It's not dense enough to change the color of my foundation or my blush, but it literally illuminates my whole face! It's almost as if I'm glowing in some lightings because it's decently sparkly. If you're looking for an extra subtle & unique touch to your makeup, this product will not let you down! The only thing I would change would be the containers of the mini Mineral Veils because if my mini gets jumbled about the house, a massive poof of sparkles invades my lungs due to the dispense holes not being sufficiently covered to avoid waste as the large containers are designed.

I love the mineral veils so much! The original one is my personal favorite, although I do like the illuminating quite a bit as well. I feel like every girl who wants that final finishing touch to their makeup should wear this. This is so great for the summer as well since my face gets pretty oily in the T-zone and this just keeps me from looking greasy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Woman So great for your skin!
I have been using Bare Minerals makeup products since 2004 and absolutely love them. They are so lightweight and keep you looking so natural, with no heavy makeup look. They actually seem to improve the quality of your skin and give you a naturally healthy looking glow. I would not even consider using any other makeup products.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect even for dry skin!
I absolutely love the hydrating mineral veil. I was a little skeptical at first, since I have dry patches of skin and thought the powder would make it even more noticeable. Boy was I wrong! This is the perfect complement to my blemish remedy makeup. It gives it a lovely silky finish and the hydrating beads feel very refreshing on my dry skin. I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from dry skin like me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveNY88 Original Mineral Veil
Mineral Veil is unlike any other product I have come across, bareMinerals does it yet again! If you are unsure about purchasing, go for it you will never need anything else. I love its versatility; I called customer service with some questions and they were more than happy to tell me that you can use it underneath your foundation on bare skin to rid yourself of oils and provides a base for your makeup. It's also a great final step sealing in your look for the day. I have not experienced the "white mask look" some others have mentioned, it blends well and LITTLE bit goes a long way! I stick to the original mineral veil (not tinted) and I have no complaints. I LOVE this product it is a must-have! I hope they never change the original formula.

If you don't like this product then you are just not using it right. One of my all time favs. Perfect finishing powder. Doesn't setting in fine lines. No caking. Light finish. Always have it with me. Love love.

This product is the perfect last step. It gives an airbrushed look, blends well, and covers. Thanks for the tinted, it's the perfect tone!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love my mineral veil
I love the mineral veils. I own the translucent, illuminating, and a limited edition brightening pearl mineral veil. I love them all but the translucent is what I use the most. It sets my makeup and blends it all together with a nice soft finish. It's great for setting concealed areas like under the eyes and if you get your blush too dark it softens it up.

I use this product all over and it sets my makeup well, I primarily use it under my eyes, so my mascara doesn't smear to my under eyes. It works great there. No more raccoon eyes! Lol!
Rated 5 out of 5 by marino18526 Only makeup I will ever use
Bare minerals is the only makeup I use, and will ever use. I doesn't cake, goes on flawless, and is perfect for my sensitive skin.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jdl2 Just the Best!
This is the best finishing powder I have ever used. It keeps my skin looking great all day and keeps the "shiny" appearance that can happen by the end of the day away. It is light and I don't feel like I have that heavy coverage, like many of the other products I have tried.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beth1969 A Nice Finishing Touch
I like the original Mineral Veil. I purchased the Illuminating Mineral Veil but didn't like it. It has tiny sparkles/glitter in it. I am 46 and really didn't want to look like a teenager with glitter on my face. I gave it to my daughter. I would be careful to not get too much on your face of any Mineral Veil. Too much looks like you were playing with your grandma's powder puff! Go light for the perfect set and look.

I love the glow the Mineral Veil gives my skin. I also love that it never cakes up in the creases and stays put all day long.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stormy Absolutely beautiful healthy glow!
This product is so beautiful, it gives your skin a radiant glowing appearance. For my age bracket 50's, it doesnt look great to only use this illuminating mineral veil. I think at this age less really is more. We can't run around with a bunch of sparkles at this age. I use the regular mineral veil first, then top it off with the illuminating mineral veil right where the sun would hit, across the bridge of nose and a touch on the cheeks, and forehead.
It really brightens your look, and gives a much softer look to your skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect Finish !
The mineral veil pulls together your whole natural make up look. It makes my face look less shiny.
I ran out of the sample size and noticed a big difference. My makeup looked warn out after a few hours. After buying and using it again my makeup lasted all day long ! This product makes a good finish to your beautiful look.
