Mineral Veil - null
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
tinted mineral veil
I love regular mineral veil and have used it for years. Thought I would try the tinted. I don't like it at all. It's very orange. I look like an Oompa Loompa.
One of my favorite bare mineral products
Live this, it really finishes my makeup routine. Have used this for many years. I rarely have to touch up, unless I'm going out in the evening. The longer it's on my skin the better it looks, wouldn't be without the tinted mineral veil.
illuminating mineral veil has that special glow
I like the "illuminating" because it gives you that little bit of sparkle. It's not like you dusted glitter all over your face or anything, not that at all, it's just that little extra special "glow". It brightens up your face whereas the regular mineral veil does not.
On the fence
I am a little on the fence about this. The texture is the same like original mineral veil. I thought I may be able to use it without the foundation if I didn't want to put on the whole system. The pigment is not quite right for me without the foundation. I am not sure it really adds anything to the foundation powder by having a pigment.
I think the original may be more luminous.
Product is great, packaging is not
I love the powder - pretty much hate the container. I so hope they address two issues with this product: the size is WAY TOO SMALL for everyday use -- it is a waste of plastic when you have to keep reordering. Not good for a company supposedly concerned about overall health and being conscious about the environment. There's a disconnect here. Secondly, it is very hard to operate the "filter level" with the tiny holes to get the product. It takes so long to get to the powder, especially toward the end when there's not much left. But you get so little of the powder originally, I feel like I want to use all of it. Please redesign this product packaging! And please make available the 28g size, which I got in some "special offer" and could not get again. So frustrating on many levels. But as I said, I love the product and how it is actually healthy makeup. That is the reason I am committed to this product and the other loose powders.
Great, but not a good touch up powder...
I absolutely love this product to finish any make up look and adds the most healthy glow while keeping things matte. However, it tends to look a bit cakey if I use it to touch up throughout the day. A great product!
