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.

awesome, glowing, flawless results when applied
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect makeup setter
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.

This is one of my favorite products, I love the flawless airbrush look I get. I always wear it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Original, tinted, and hydrate version
The original and tinted are great for me. I didn't bother to try the illuminated version because I'm more of a matte type. For the hydrating version, that's where I took a star off. It left little sparkle on my face which I absolutely cannot stand and I found that a certain BM produce has these random sparkle in them. But these sparkles were not fine enough or it wer not evenly distrubute on my face. So it looks like random sparkle on my face...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love this! Gives a great glow!
This product is awesome! It gives you a great refreshing glow! I just had my second baby and have little sleep and am exhausted but you would never know! Everyone has been commenting on how great and refreshed I look! I normally used the tinted veil but this is now my go to!

I love the glow it gives my skin. It goes on light and not heavy like other products. It does not irritate my skin. Goes on light and feels light.

I started using Bare Minerals in my 30's. I am thrilled that I can continue to use my most favorite products into my 50's! I have always loved the Mineral Veil, and the last few years I have used the Hydrating Mineral Veil for my dry skin. It is magic!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasMama Still My Favorite Powder
I have been using Mineral Veil since 1999, and it is still my go-to setting powder. I love it! I love how silky smooth it feels on my face, and how it seems to give me a light glow. I don't love how it is beginning to settle into my fine lines, but I AM approaching 40 so I guess it is to be expected.
Rated 5 out of 5 by scates0609 Wonderful Product!
I absolutely love this product! It's lightweight and feels really good on my skin. The only downside to the Mineral Veil is that it's a little pricey, but I'd rather pay a little more for a product that feels good on my skin than a product that feels like a heavy mask.
