Mineral Veil - null
I LOVE Mineral Veil but DO NOT love the new packaging. I find that there is a LOT of product that I am unable to get of the the container when the product is running out. WIth the old packaging, I was able to "pop off" the sifter and get out what was left. With the new packaging, I feel like the product is trapped and I have no way to get it out of there. I love this product but am thinking about looking elsewhere due to the waste. I vote for the old packaging.
I love the mineral veil! I use it even if I am not wearing my foundation for the day just because it helps control oil and gives me a perfect matte finish. I purchased it at the BE store and recieved it with the no-spill packaging and am SO glad I bought it that way. Since it is such a feathery product the powder sometimes spills if I'm not careful. I am so very greatful for the no-spill container you have NO idea!
More money - Less product
I've been a customer for many years and have not used any other type of powder during those years....sorry to say, but I will not pay the price for "barely" two tablespoons full of powder.
I do love the new packaging where you control the amount of product that is available for use....but geeeeeeeeeeez....if I'm lucky this will last me about a month whereas the old one lasted many many months.
cant live without it!
i use it every day. it finishes off my makeup and makes my skin look flawless! i cant live without it! doesnt make me break out because its natural and doesnt make my skin look dry:)
A Perfect Face Powder!! :D
I LOVE LOVE Original Mineral Veil!! I have to admit that I do not use foundation, but I do need a little something to control oil and shine and this stuff is perfect! I have tried so MANY different powders, but this one is the softest and silkiest I have ever tried. I love that it does not change the color of my skin, but gives me a wonderful smooth finish. It hides my pores and controls oil all day. And the fact that it doesn't have any bad ingredients in it, that it is actually good for my skin, is an absolute plus! A wonderful face powder all around!!!
a beautiful finishing touch. some days i have oily skin and some days i don't. on the days that i do this absorbs most of the oil but whats left doesn't actually look like oil on my face but a light glow.
A Perfect Finishing Touch
When I was purchasing the basics, I was not sure how I felt about mineral veil, but after watching demonstrations of how everything worked together, I knew I had to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! Over the rest of my face basics: concealer, foundation, blush, and highlight, it adds a wonderful finishing touch. The mineral veil really does give everything else you've applied an "airbrushed" look, setting it all at the same time. I agree with other reviewers that it's not a necessity, but it does finish your look. Personally, my makeup feels unfinished without it.
I've just started using Bare Escentuals and I am in love with it, especially the mineral veil. I have very fair and flawless skin (I've had one pimple in my whole life!), but my 30 years are starting to show, and my complexion is getting a little uneven. This product makes my skin glow and it makes my skin look like it did when I was 20 - and it doesn't look like I'm wearing any makeup at all. I would recommend bareMinerals to absolutely anyone who wants to have luminous, young, flawless looking skin.
So great it can be worn alone!
I love the Mineral Veil! It's perfect for when you don't want or need to do the whole makeup routine - like if I'm just going to be running errands or lounging around with friends or family. It's so sheer, absorbs my oily t-zone and smooths out those mid-thirties "lines" . Just a swipe of mascara and some lip balm and I feel ready to face any casual situation.
very important step
I've been using BE for years now and this is a very important product for me. It really is invaluable for controlling oil and shine. I put this on first under my foundation and it controls shine all day (12+ hours). I normally don't use it as a finishing product, but I couldn't live with out it as a shine control base!
