Mineral Veil - null
Try it UNDER your foundation
The mineral veil came with my starter kit and I used it on top of my foundation just to set and hydrate a little bit. I was experiencing some itchiness, which my local makeup counter informed me was because the foundation has a mineral in it that helps to turn over and shed dead skin cells (GROSS!) and that my skin would get used to this eventually and the itching would stop. She suggested that I try a little of the mineral veil UNDER my foundation until I get used the products and let me tell you, that helped a lot! Plus my skin looks a little more luminous!
Fantastic and Messy
I love this to death makes my makeup perfection and my face glows. The container is very messy and flies everwhere though.
I used the mineral matte foundation and mineral veil almost daily for about 1 month. Coverage was okay but felt I needed to touch it up throughout my 9 hr workday. It is somewhat itchy with normal activity but I go for a run each day after work so my makeup is still on. I found it is very itchy especially when I work up a sweat. I wanted to rip my skin off. Also started breaking out on forehead and jawline which is unusual for me. I chose to look into another mineral product, which I absolutely love!!! No more itching and coverage seems even better. I've had it on for 8 1/2 hours so far today
and no need for a touch up yet.
I love this one better than the regular mineral veil because it gives
my face a little more brighter finish with a very slight sparkle.
Love this product!
I can't say enough good things about this product. It has so many uses and makes my skin so soft and look perfect. I recommend to everyone!
This product goes on smoothly and adds the perfect finish. I love it. It is so light weight you don't even know that you have it on.
Love love LOVE this!
Finally, a powder that doesn't go on cakey and streaked. Even if more than one coat is applied, it never looks glommed on and it isn't noticeable in any way. It makes a sheer beautiful finish to my make-up routine.
Best powder ever
This powder is amazing. For those days when you don't need full coverage and your skin is oily I use this mineral veil and it's awesome. It blends in so well you don't even notice it's there yet it covers everything you need to cover! I have it in the original and I love it I can see myself using this product for a long time!
Get the one you are looking for
I have used BE for two years now and Mineral Veil is a must have product for those of us with oily skin. The original is my favorite; it soften and gives the illusion of great skin. Also, I love the tip about applying Mineral Veil before foundation to absorb oil--brilliant!
I have also used the tinted and illuminating formulas.
I have fair skin (usually Fairly Light) so when I bought the tinted mineral veil, I knew I was taking a risk, not trying it at the store first. I got it in the spring and loved it! There was enough color to warm up my skin, without the overbearing color in the regular warmth product. Plus, I used the tinted mineral veil in place of the original veil and another all-over color or bronzer. This was wonderful for the warmer months!
When it got cooler, I thought I would try the illuminating mineral veil. This one isn't for me, at least not for everyday use. It is very sparkly/shimmering in color. As soon as I opened it I was skeptical. I didn't care for how sparkly my face was. Maybe if I was going out it would seem more appropriate. I'm going back to original mineral veil, where I was happy.
There are lots of great products here: all silky smooth application and they last a long time.
Illuminating Mineral Veil
I tried it at a Bare Minerals Boutique and it gives me a youthful brighter glow. Also it helps look less like I'm wearing foundation. I am switching from the plain original now.
Illuminating Mineral Veil
I love how this makes my skin glow!
The mineral veil gives your face a beautiful glow! It is silky and radiant! I love when I accidently put on too much blush/bronzer, that I don't have to completely redo my makeup! I just buff on a normal amount of mineral veil and it dulls the color perfectly! I am so glad that I was introduced to this product!
Once I realized that I can use it UNDER my makeup to control oil in my T-zone (and boy howdy, it's like a flowing grease slick there), I was amazed! My makeup went on so smoothly, controlled the oil all day and still looked pretty good before bed. MUCH better than wearing it over the makeup. LOVE it, will be buying more soon.
The mineral veil itself was great; however, I purchased the tinted one, and I felt the tinted one was too much color for me in the winter. I do get very pale though, but it looked almost like a bronzer on my face. I wasn't expecting this. I wouldn't have minded as much about the intense color, but it looked very orange on my face. Next time I will just go with the original finish. If you are looking to combine your mineral veil and bronzer though, this may be a good option for you!
For a completely flawless finish, I use this; a product that says what it does and does what it says!
Mineral Veil - The Best!
I am 75 years old and have tried quite a number of finishing powders, but none can compare to Mineral Veil. My daughter, my sister and I all use it. There is no better finishing powder on the market today!
I really love the Illuminating Mineral Veil on this product. Having used the original veil for years, I was hesitant to make a switch to a different "version" so to speak. The illuminating version of this product really creates a natural glow. It makes your skin look fresh and clean and creates a natural shimmer that really highlights your face.
Because I have naturally oily skin (that is infinitely worse in the summertime!), I love applying a thin layer of Mineral Veil before I apply my foundation; this helps give the foundation a smooth base (making it look more natural), and helps absorb the oils, keeping my face feeling clean and dry (hallelujah!). I also love using this as a touchup throughout the day to help absorb the midday shine, and give my face that soft look again.
Tip: Make sure to regularly clean the any brush that applies the Mineral Veil (especially if you're like me with multiple touch-ups); the oils from your face will get trapped in the bristles, which will make your face breakout more often.
Tip: This is great to apply as a safety if you've applied too much blush/bronzer/highlighter - it helps diffuse the intensity.
i love the way this makes my skin glow and look refreshed. being in my mid 40's my makeup habits have changed and I feel like i found something that helps my skin look better without being over done. great product.
Excellent product; high quality; subtle
I do not like to feel like I'm wearing make-up, and I don't want people to look at me and think, "Oh, nice job on the makeup." I want people to look at me and think, "Oh wow, she looks so pretty." Well, BareMinerals makes ME look nice. My husband didn't realize I wore makeup until after we got married, and he saw me put on my makeup. Mineral veil and the foundation are so seamless and subtle that they aren't noticeable; It just looks like I look like this. Also, I have rosacea and really sensitive, acne prone skin. Using this makeup in no way exacerbates those problems. (I have done A LOT of experimentation with other products which do exacerbate my skin issues). The original foundation combined with mineral veil gives me exactly the coverage and soft tone that I want. And btw, on my wedding day, I still used my regular makeup routine of BareMinerals - basic foundation and mineral veil; that is a big deal. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.
A Must Have
I have this in both original and tinted and love them both. Original does seem to wash out my skin a touch during the summer, even when using a feather light brush, which is where tinted comes in! Tinted added a dash of color to my medium to tan skin and gives off a nice polished look to my makeup. Original is great for the late fall to winter when my skin has lost its tan and tinted looks a little bit too dark. Over all, this is a must have mineral product. It does everything it claims to do.
I've been using the tinted Mineral Veil for a number of years and just switched to the hydrating version. My make up, at the end of the business day, still looks pretty darn good. I always looked shiny by noon with both the tinted veil and the compact versions.
I need this every day!
I had run out of mineral veil, and thought that it didn't make that much of a difference. So I waited a week or two to replace it, and continued using the foundation powder like I normally would. The week after I resumed wearing mineral veil I received SO many compliments on my skin and complexion. Someone described my skin as translucent! You should know that I don't think I have great skin - I struggle with intermittent acne, inconsistent skin color, and so on. The mineral veil made a big difference in smoothing out and evening the color that my foundation already provided. I'll never go without it now!
Won't go without it!
I absolutely love this product. It is one of the best finishing powders I have ever used. It serves so many purposes. In the summer, I use it over my tinted moisturizer, and always to finish my makeup, to give it the airbrush look. Even when I'm at home without makeup, I use it, just to give me that finished look. I will never be without it. Thanks for such a wonderful product.
Awesome - but not great for acne
This product is wonderful!!! However, it actually broke me out because of the corn starch in it... If it wasn't for that this product would be perfect for me! Maybe I'll give the Hydrating veil a try :)
Works great with BE oil free primer!
I didn't think I needed this product but, I broke down and purchased it with the oil free primer and loose powder foundation and concealer. Huge difference compared to foundation alone! It's now a must for me for every special occasion or long day or night out!
Adds the perfect finishing touch!
When I first heard about Mineral Veil, I thought it would be a complete waste of money. Oh, how wrong I was! My Mineral Veil adds the final touch to my face to leave it looking flawless, air brushed, and silky. It also has just a slight shimmer to it that makes my skin look so healthy it glows!
When I first purchased my Bare Minerals kit I was blown away by how this mineral veil worked. It blended all of the makeup together and made my skin look flawless and felt light as a feather on my face. I will never put on my foundation again without adding this veil on top!
Love, Love, Love Tinted Mineral Veil
I have used the tinted mineral veil for many, many years now. I am asked how I keep my complexion looking so good....I always say a light moisturizer everyday and tinted mineral veil for my foundation. I will be 50 in a couple of months and have friends who think I am in my 30s! The tinted mineral veil provides enough color and coverage to do the trick. I will continue to use this product as long as they make it.
Amazing, but not... I'll explain
I have gotten this in the original formula as well as the tinted one.
The original formula essentially does little, in my opinion. Sure its a nice soft finishing powder, but could I live without it? Yes. Does it blur my fine lines or imperefctions? Eh, not so much really. Plus it makes me appear slightly more 'ghosty' than I normally do.
The TINTED one however, holy moly! It's like a WORLD of difference! Now, I say a world of difference in reference to finishing powders of course haahahaha..... It gives the slightest bit of color, just enough to really make your face look amazing.
The tinted one, GREAT - the original one, I could live without.
