Mineral Veil - null
I absolutely love the mineral veil. It goes on so easy and lots of times I will just use it alone with no other foundation. It covers beautifully and gives a fantastic tint to my skin.
My favorite setting powder
I use this in both Original (translucent) and Illumininating. It is a Holy Grail product for me. I use Original more, as it gives a flawless, matte finish that works with any makeup look. The Illuminating is beautiful, with a fine sparkle that is noticeable, but doesn't make you look like a shimmery disco ball. I like it in summer, or around the holidays.
Most of my life I've had super-oily skin, and this combined with the Original Foundation was a godsend, especially in the days before primers. I've been using this for nearly two decades. I had given up on my foundation lasting till I tried this. Powders would always cake or melt off with my foundations. I can use this with any foundation, and it sets it.
When my skin is really oily, or it's really hot outside, I put this over AND under the Original Foundation. My makeup stays on, and stays flawless all day. My skin stays shine-free. The layers needed are light, so I still don't feel like I'm wearing anything on my face. Dusting it on the eyelids before using shadows helps prevent them from creasing (I did this before eyeshadow primers were available).
I love the translucent mineral veil! It provides the perfect finish to seal in my foundation and make it last longer on my oily skin. I suggest using it before you apply your blush, bronzer, and/or highlight so that it doesn't cover up what you did!
Great product for smooth finish and looks great in pictures!
not for me
I bought this in the store i was excited to replace my normal moral veil and i thought i could use it as a highlighter as well.
It is very lightweight which did not work to be a highlighter.
The only reason I don't like it is that in the sun its too glittery for me. Others say its barely there but i just don't like the look of it for everyday.
I am keeping it for nights out because it does do what its supposed to do give you a sheer clean finish.
Couldn't be better for aging skin
absolutely wonderful product...will not use anything else
I use the Mineral Veil over Complexion Rescue and like how light it is. I have freckles that I don't want to cover and the Mineral Veil seals in my makeup without being thick or covering my freckles. I feel like you do need a spray sealer over this, though, because if I hug my dog, sometimes I get splotchy patches from where my face touched her fur.
Mineral Veil - Hydrating?! It seems to have disappeared.
I know that I am in the minority, considerably, with this review, but Mineral Veil just did not do (for me, anyway) what it is touted to do. I was very disappointed with the lack-luster results after giving it a decent amount of time to work its charms, and, sadly, it did not. It left my skin parched and patchy with too much of a “disco ball” effect, believe it or not, and that was after applying the veil to clean, exfoliated, healthy, smooth and hydrated skin using a very light application with tapping, careful blending and buffing using the recommended brush and / or tool(s). I know of course that Mineral Veil is an award-winning product and considered the holy grail, a miracle in a jar (or container, in this case) so to speak, but that was not my experience, which is fine, as you find out these things through trial and error. I returned the product with no regrets for having given it a shot.
Great Hydrating Mineral Veil but there's a issue.
I just received my order today for my Hydrating Mineral Veil which I normally get. I was more then half way out of my old one so I decided to order a new one. Well, to my disappointment, the sealed container was half way or a little less then half way full. Almost looked the same as my old container that I have been using for a while. Very odd. Is it a manufacture mistake where they don't fill the container all the way? Usually they are full...
Product itself is great. Love the Hydrating Mineral Veil but I won't be purchasing anymore if this is now what I get for 20.00 + dollars...
Perfect finishing touch. I wear the original mineral veil
