by aerosen Not hydrating and weird coloring
So overall the product sets makeup very well. Especially for dry and dehydrated skin. It does NOT however actually hydrate your skin. It sits well on the skin but the part that I hate more than anything, is the purple tint it has. I guess its suppose to help with complexion but if you accidentally put too much on the brush, you have a purple tinted face in certain lightings.... I contacted BE and they sent me a new one, but they were the same products... I don't recommend...
Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtofAsh Only powder to actually set my under eye concealer
I have been searching for god knows how long to find a powder that will set my under eye concealer so it doesnt crease like crazy but wont give me a weird white filmy finish under my eyes. A friend got me a sample size of this for christmas and i absolutely fell in love! Its so lightweight but still sets my concealer perfectly and if i put it over my whole face it gives me skin an amazing finish.

This is by far the lightest finishing powders I've ever tried. It goes on smoothly and blends in very well.

Illuminating mineral veil is perfect never shinny just a stroke of light, I don't wear it all over my face I just place it where the light would hit your skin, but perfect for the body shoulders, legs, decollete

I use the brightening veil after I put on my foundation, and it really finishes the look. It makes my skin look natural and healthy. I have very sensitive and prone to breakouts skin, and this product does not irritate my face. None of bare essentials products bother my skin actually, which is why I love this stuff! The only thing I can say bad is that the glitter in the brightening option can make your skin appear shinny after a while of wear.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheri62 I LOVE this brand!
I have been using the light Mineral Veil since it first came out on TV. People tell me all the time what a beautiful complexion I have! It's so light on my skin and yet it gives me a beautiful finish. I love it. I will never use another brand of make-up!

I have loved this product since I first started using Bare Minerals in 2005. It came in an introductory kit that I bought. it is light and airy and it just gives your face that amazing finish. this and my summer bisque I could not live without. thank you Bare Minerals
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magi I love the original Mineral Veil
I never leave the house without it! It gives my make up an airbrushed look and keeps my foundation on all day. I have dry skin -- but my skin looks soft and dewy with the Mineral Veil. Unlike other make up that I've tried, I rarely need to touch up or reapply powder during the work day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tracykehaunani Perfect finish
The tinted mineral veil is awesome! It has just the right color to give me that sun kissed glow. I love this little hint of color and the soft focus finish I get. It's the perfect finish to my daily look. Keeps my face fresh and dry all day.

I love the mineral veil. No matter how hot, humid, or long my day is at school.... mineral veil keeps me looking non-shiny or tired at the end of the day. I love my BE!

I ordered my first set from HSN over 20 years ago and have NEVER bought another brand since then!!!!! The mineral veil is the last of the Magic application and makes it all into
sheer fairy dusted PERFECTION. I have been truly BLESSED the day I bought my first set.
Thank ya'll so much for all this!!!!!!! When my identicle TWIN saw me she could not stop looking in amazment. After I told her about the products. She rushed off to place an order!!! She loves your MAGIC as much as I do!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tink63 The best product in my makeup bag!
I absolutely love this product! I have oily skin and even at the age of 50 my makeup was always soaking into my skin and my face was shiny by the afternoon. Not with the mineral veil. What a difference! I can't even tell that I am wearing makeup! My shine if finally gone! Love, Love, Love this product!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by BeautyWrites Nice, but
I bought this with a small size primer and was really excited about using it. The powder primer worked really well, but the color was very pink on my skin and made me look sick. I would really like to try it in another shade.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JessieM This is a must have!
I have buying Bare Minerals for about a half a year now and can say that I love the change-especially all of their Mineral Veil products. The illuminating shade is great for a younger look in the warmer months, and I have fallen in love with it. The original is incredible as well! This is the perfect way to finish off any of your makeup looks.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Linny Must have!
I was introduced to the mineral veil about a year ago and I wear it every day! I absolutely love how beautiful it makes my skin look! Most days I wear a little blush and the veil and my skin looks luminous! I can skip the bb creams and foundations but I cannot go without the mineral veil. I have combination skin and the veil makes all the shine disappear! I like to keep a small sample size in my purse for touch ups. You really must try it! Stop by for a sample and you will love the way your skin will look!
Rated 1 out of 5 by tiff Not for any kind of dry or aging skin
I purchased a bare escentuals kit after reading their advertisement how fabulous the product was for aging and face lines.
Definitely a huge waste of money. I followed the dvd 3 times to make sure I was doing this right as my skin looked 10 years older.
It is for sure for people who have perfect skin. If you have any dry areas or face lines they increase 200%
Rated 5 out of 5 by HelenfromNC The Perfect Finishing Touch
I love using Mineral Veil! It is the perfect finishing touch for my face.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buttercup324 The one product that kept me coming back.
I have actually gone through 3 of these over the years. I can't use the original foundation because of the bismuth, but this powder works wonderfully for finishing any makeup look! I have tried other brands mineral finishing powders and dusts and either the color or texture or something is off and I keep coming back to this! I have fair to light skin and I feel that this helps brighten my skin slightly as well as add a nice soft focus finish over my mineral or liquid foundation in any brand! It may not be the least expensive, but definitely not the most expensive loose powder you could try, but I have found it to be the best for my sensitive dry skin! Just remember when using any powder on your face to really hydrate your skin well before and you will have no problems!

I love mineral veil. I've used 2 different shades over the years and both have worked very well for me. I think if you try it, you will love it too
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sroro In small amounts it's awesome
I am 26 and have oily skin so the idea of a shimmering powder did not seem appealing, but I wanted to try it. It's actually great, except I use a tiny bit less than the original veil so that my skin won't be shiny. I personally don't think it's too shimmery, but that may be because I don't use much at a time.
Rated 3 out of 5 by GloriaQ way too shining
I like the original version, so was very excited to try the illuminating. I wish I had listened to the other reviews here... It is just way TOOOO SHINING !! I think I will get a hydrate one and use the illuminating one as a highlighter...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ven Can't live without
I love the original MV. When I first purchased the original foundation 12 years ago I used it alone and I wasn't impressed. Then I went back to the botique and purchased the original MV. I've never used this product as a finisher b/c it seemed counter intuitive to put white powder on top of foundation so I've always used it as a base and what a difference. For some reason it adds coverage to the foundation. The foundation does not look the same without MV as a base.
I have not sensitive skin, but hyper-sensitive skin and I can't use many makeups. I've tried all brands and I always come back to BE b/c MV is comfortable, a great base, and great for hyper-sensitive skin.
DON'T EVER STOP MAKING ORIGINAL BE PRODUCTS. MY SKIN HATES THE READY LINE.
Rated 3 out of 5 by trinityaz So sad
I have extremely dry skin, and was disappointed the first time I used the bare minerals foundation and this veil as they seemed to really accentuate my dry patches. I was applying this mineral veil beneath my foundation as I have been told that can help relieve the itchiness that newbies get when first using bare minerals. It is true that my face seems less itchy when using this beneath my foundation. BUT, I absolutely cannot use it to go over my foundation because it makes my face look horribly dry. I am not sure if it is a particular ingredient in this that is causing this reaction, but it is just awful and totally ruins the work I have put into my foundation. Really wish I could have the experience most people have with this, that it would finish everything beautifully, but it is just not the case for me. Maybe I can try the hydrating one in the future, but for now I am probably going to have to search for a different product to finish my face with (such as a setting spray).
Rated 4 out of 5 by a019 Feels Great
This product feels great over my bareSkin foundation and really does provide a smooth, finished look! I was actually pretty surprised with how nice it finished everything off. However, it did not set the bareSkin foundation quite as well as the READY touch up veil. But this is still a great product and provides a nice finish!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mystic13 Perfect Finishing Powder
I have the original and I love it. This item is a must-have step for a flawless complexion. It helps to give your face the "natural make-up" look. I don't know how else to describe it except that it just makes everything look soft and blended on your face, very natural. And if you use the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener, this is a must-have to go along with that. Literally makes the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes disappear!
Sometimes I'll just wear the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener and the original mineral veil, or just the original foundation and the original mineral veil, if I'm feeling really lazy.
I'm excited to try the hydrating one next time!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LucyMom can be without this
this is more than a finishing powder, I use it both with makeup and just a quick dusting if I am going out and don't have time to put on makeup. It gives my skin a luminous glow and covers imperfections without looking cake-y. Fantastic product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautylovekcmo Makeup bag ESSENTIAL right here!
This powder is perfect to finish off your makeup look every morning. It goes on so softly, gives you a soft matte finish and keeps everything in place all day. It just gives your skin a gorgeous finish! This product is tried and true, you won't regret making this purchase because you will use it at least once a day!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna123 Hydrating Mineral Veil
I have all of the BE face/eye products and I love them all. The last thing I purchased was the hydrating mineral veil, which I adore. For me it was between the illuminating and the hydrating because I wanted a little shimmer, but I wanted natural. The illuminating was a little bit too sparkly for me, but the hydrating has plenty of shimmer. It's like a toned-down illuminating. It soaks up any excess oil and leaves such a dewey and natural looking finish. I absolutely love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MACCCSLP Great finish
I like how finished my makeup looks when I end with the mineral veil. I also like that on a day when I'm in a hurry or want to look gently polished without the full makeup I can use the veil alone with just a touch of blush and go! Will be a go to plan for summer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CassFishEye A bit chalky...
I have been using Mineral Veil since I first started with BE. Normally I have used the Illuminating Mineral Veil, but while in a boutique recently I thought I would give the hydrating formula a try. It does have a bit of sparkle in it, which is something I love about the Illuminating formula. However, for me this product feels a bit chalky when being applied and bit "rough" if you will. That being said, it still works wonders to even and freshen everything up, and while I don't feel that it is necessarily more "hydrating" it still looks flawless. Not sure yet if I would purchase this formula again or stick with my go to.
