READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
I agree with the other comments. I like the medium veil and I use it in 4 set compact but am tired of buying it just for the medium veil. I also would prefer they put a lighter concealer in the compact set. Please offer the Medium in the Touch Up Veil!
Love this, why no medium color???
I love this product. I like the translucent ok, but don't like looking a little ghostly. I love the medium in the small Secret Weapon kits, but don't want to keep buying those (I bought 2 already). I prefer the powder concealer, so don't want the cream concealers from those.. I can't imagine why they only have light and deep available in the colored veil. I am upset they don't have medium!!! I hope they please listen to all of us about this! Otherwise, this is a great powder. I use the Ready foundation and only carry this with me to work during the day and can touch up if needed, but rarely need to, if I use this over the foundation in the morning. It keeps me from getting oily and shiny as the day wears on and keeps a flawless finish all day. Give us our Medium back please!
PLEASE BRING THIS PRODUCT BACK
This is the BEST mineral veil formula! Please BE bring it back in every color again!!!!!!
What happened to Tan color
I love the product, but am very upset they don't have tan available. Will be finding a substitute product.
I've used and loved this product for a long time. It's especially good when used as the
'finishing touch' over Complexion Rescue moisturizer. But I have the same complaint as
several other reviewers: About half way through the compact, the powder breaks up into
little pieces -- very annoying and makes application difficult. My biggest complaint today
is that it's not available in medium color! I cannot wear any of the other colors, so I'll be
searching for a substitute brand.
Breaks easily into chucky pieces
I love having a compact in my purse for powdering a shiny nose on occasion. However, within two weeks of purchase, the powder broke into pieces and fell out every time I opened the compact. Had to throw it away.
Works wonders over BB cream
This came in my surprise beauty box and it is one of my favorite products. I wasn't sure what to do with it originally, but as I was experimenting one day, I put it on top of my BB cream (unfortunately not a bare minerals BB cream) and it was like magic! It helps keep me from getting oily and make the BB cream last longer.
Velvet like magic!
I really appreciate this product more and more each time that I use it. For someone who can be lazy about applying make up, especially in very hot, humid weather, this is a wonderful powder/veil to use!!! I love the way that it makes my skin feel, when I touch my cheek with the back of my hand, and find it astounding that my skin feels so smooth!!! I highly recommend this product to any and everyone!
Excellent quality product. I will be upset if you ever stop making and selling it!!!
I really tried to use this powder but couldn't due to the odor.
I bought this powder at a Bare Minerals store. I really couldn't believe how terrible it smelled when I first used it, chemical odor and also some mildew, I think. I did not want to try to return it to the distant store, so I washed the puff several times. No decrease in the smell. Using a brush with the powder didn't help, the smell is in there too. Since the powder is applied to the nose, this is a pretty big problem. It is not often I throw new purchases away, but I can't use it.
Takes away the oil!!
If you have skin thats oily or slightly greasy, this product will nip that in the bud. I have a compact I keep at work and dust a bit on in the afternoon to soak up the oil. It makes my skin look more matte and clear. If you are planning to go out after work and don't want to wash up and start your makeup over, just use this to clean things up and refresh. Highly recommend it!!! Keep one in your purse or work bag, too!
The best powder I ever had
I am so happy that I bought this product, since it does what it promise. At my age, my skin really need make up which is benefiting instead showing the not anymore youthful "texture". I am very skilled in choosing my product and know what I need. There are tons of powders on the market, but each of them have always something why I did not like it. Until now. This is the VEIL I was dreaming about. I would recommend it to all of you.
Thought I'd give this a try and bought it more for portability and ease of use when not at home. Wow, I should have gotten this sooner because the staying power on the ready products are the best. I live in Hawaii and the humidity can get bad, so the shine on my face always needs a touch up. Well, with the ready I notice less shine sooner and less touchup. Great, and I do notice this too on the ready foundation.
Get rid of those nasty puffs!
I had the same experience described in the review by Maggie Mae. Got a sample size (the "Ready Illuminating Touch-Up Veil") and could not believe how bad it smelled. Petrochemical type odor. I knew it was probably from the soft black plastic on the back of the puff. I discarded that immediately and left the compact sitting open on a windowsill. But more than a week later the scent was still in the product! No way I want my face to smell like that, to me or others! I scraped all the powder out, hoping to at least salvage the nice little silver compact for alternate use. Unfortunately, the odor still remains, though much less strong. It seems to be concentrated in the black plastic surrounding the silver product tray, so it would probably be best to get rid of that material, too. I would expect this kind of thing to slip by QC with drugstore junk, not Bare Minerals.
I really like the feel of this product. It produces a very nice polished effect, to complete the makeup application, also adding some protection to go with it. The only thing that I have had problems with is the compact powder coming loose, rather than staying compact and together as it should. This occurs after several applications have been made. At first, I thought it may be just a fluke. However, I've purchased several since and have the same issue. There is a point when the compact powder comes loose and separates, which means then, though you can still apply, it is not as smooth or easy to place on your skin, and it is messy when you open up the compact itself.
I continue to use because I like the way the mineral veil feels, and the comfort and ease when all is working properly. I may, however, go back to the original mineral veil, the non compact version, after this. Has any one else had this particular problem?
Very Disappointed w/ BareMinerals
I have fair/light golden sensitive skin. I thought of using BareMinerals because I had heard how great it was for sensitive skin. I love natural products so I thought I would give this particular powder a shot. The price seemed a bit excessive but I was willing to pay for good quality. As soon as I put this powder on my skin felt like it was burning. I literally had to wash it off right away so my skin would stop itching and burning. After giving this powder several different tries after the first horrible experience, I noticed that the heat made it worse... I tried to see if I could wear it but it seems impossible even if it is cool outside...
Also, regarding the color and how it matched my skin I thought this powder did a very poor job. I have worn cheaper powders before and they matched my skin tone much better than this one did. It was not necessarily that it looked fake or unmatched, but more that it gave my face sort of a "ghost/dead" look.
All in all, very disappointed. DO NOT buy this if you have SENSITIVE skin...it will literally make you wanna tear your skin off.
Love with disappointment...
I love this product, hate the way it smells! I got a "sample" size with an order (it was only .5 oz) and I'm not sure why - but as soon as I opened it, it smelled like some type of harsh chemical - hard to describe exactly. The smell has not diminished since I've had it either. However, I love, love, love how it goes on and refreshes without having to get my full mineral veil powder out. Anyone else have issues with the smell?
I was using a setting spray until i discovered...
Okay so I've been a bare minerals/escentuals addict since high school so that would be about 4 years now. I never touched this stuff because I always thought powdering my nose and wearing POWDER as a setting formula could never work, it'll crease and diminish throughout the day. Well I was WRONG. This veil in deep has been pretty much the ying to my yang. I still love my hydrating Kat Von D setting spray but this right here...this veil right here.. it beats all odds. I'm between complex climates as well from California to Missouri, so stagnant beautiful weather to HUMID AWFUL AWFULNESS. lol ..
I love this, thanks to Jessica at the St. Louis Galleria Mall, I most likely will only use the other setters if I swim or something. Also This setting veil reduces the amount of sweat on my face. It's pretty much perfect, and compact.. fits everywhere. And I love the little plush powder pad that comes in it. Cute.
Great to touch-up after work
This works very well to refresh my make up after work. Makes me look less tired!
I wish there was a replacement cartridge instead of just tossing the container and buying a new one each time.
READY Mineral Veil
I just purchased this yesterday. I'm not crazy about it at this point. We'll see. I would like to see this one come in the Hydrating formula and in a Brightening formula unless I overlooked this one. I have been a BM user for about 12 years and generally love the product line with the exception of too many shimmery eye shadows. I would like to see a few more that are matte and one that have a very subtle shimmer.
Never leave home without it!
As an acne sufferer, I am so excited about all of the foundations and finishing powders by Bare Minerals.
I am especially in love with this product the most! It is extremely important for me to make sure I have broad spectrum coverage, to prevent hyper pigmentation due to the medications that I use on my face to lighten the scaring from residual adult acne. However, it's also hard to find a product that will not clog your pores. Well ladies, not only does this provide the broad spectrum to protect us from the sun and further darkening of acne blemishes, but it also provides you with a flawless finished looking complexion!
I literally never leave home without this product. I use it after moisterizing my face, if I just want to step out without any additional make up on, and it provides protection and a great looking complexion!
I also use this if I decide to wear make up as a finishing powder. A lot of people probably use on top of thier makeup, but I use directly after applying foundation, and then apply the rest of my make up, like eyeshadow, blush and the likes. It gives a very clean and finished look, while giving the appearance of minimizing pores.
Most importantly...NO BREAKOUTS!!!! :)
Like I said ladies...Never leave home without it.
My only disappointment, is that they do not carry the same shades in the loose Mineral Veil® Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25. I really like the feel of the loose Mineral Veil, but it only comes in transluscent and tinted. I use this product in TAN, and it matches just perfectly with my complexion. I tried the loose Mineral Veil in TINTED, but I had to return it, as it gave my face a fake reddish tanned look. It's a shame that this only comes in 2 shades.
I really wish they'd create the loose Mineral Veil® Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25 in the same shades as this Ready Touch Up Veil, because not only does it feel really nice, but it has a better Broad Spectrum SPF coverage of 25 vs. the 15 you get with this product.
However, I will continue to use this product, regardless, because it has been great to me, in more ways that one!
I give this four hearts, becuase I wish it came in the same shade, with a loose veil & SPF 25
Works Well with bareSkin Foundation
I recently started using BareMinerals bareSkin foundation in Bare Shell 02 for the summer. I have tried setting it with both the READY touch up veil in medium and the loose powder Mineral Veil in original. I think that this works a little bit better. This does add a little bit of extra color, so like foundation, you may have to switch through the seasons. The compact itself seems nice and sturdy with a simple, classic look. However, the puff that comes inside has a weird smell to it, so I will not be using that.
My favorite setting powder
The best setting powder!! So glad it came out with different shades (i use Medium). Didn't like the translucent one as it showed a white cast on my medium skintone. Love that it comes in a pressed powder compact because i can't stand the mess of loose powders. It also helps control my oily skin. I currently use it to set my BareSkin brightening serum foundation, which I also love!
Prefer the Tinted Option
I had to replace my tinted Ready Touch Up Veil and was surprised to find it now comes in six shades. I'm warm tan and purchased this in the new tan shade, but the old tinted option was better. I can see these shades not working for everyone. I hope by the time I need to replace this one that a tinted option will be back. It was hard to go wrong with the previous options.
Life changer for me!
I got this product in Translucent, so it is basically like Mineral Veil in a compact. It makes touch ups on the go so easy! All I need is my retractable brush and I can do 30 second touch ups that completely refresh my skin. I know other people like the versions that have a little bit of color to them because it just gives them that little bit of added coverage as well. If you love Mineral Veil but just want a mess-free way to apply it, whether in your bathroom as part of your morning routine or on the run, you need to try this product!!
I love this product very much. Its superb!!!
Need to get "Tinted"
Not sure why you changed your colors in your Finishing powders #Touch up Veil#, but Im very diappointed. I have used Bare Minierals for a couple of years now and I usually dont have any complaints, but now I do. I have been using the Tinted color in the Touch up Veil for a while now and I love it... I dont like wearing a lot of makeup and this was just the perfect shade. I could put my moisturizer on and my Tinted touch up veil on in the mornings and go.... Now Im not sure what color to use... They all seem to be to light or to dark. It makes me sad but it looks like I will looking elsewhere for what little make-up I do where.... :(
I've been using. B M for over the past 13 years, and I love how easy it has made my life, especially with three kids. When you came out with the mineral veil compact I was so happy, found my perfect shade that was tinted, now we all know that's gone. I have tried both the light and the medium but there's nothing like the tinted it was perfect.
I love how a swipe of the mineral veil just sets the make up, I hope with all the inquiries you come back with the tinted color again. I find that the mineral veil in a compact is more hearty then the make up in a compact, I just love Bare Minerals and couldn't live without it,
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this powder!!!!
I wear golden medium foundation and was previously using the translucent loose powder. The loose powder would make me look pale and offset the nice golden color from the foundation. Initially I was hesitant on buying the pressed Ready powder because typically the oils of my face would leave a hard layer of residue/splotches on pressed powders. So far, that is not a problem with the Ready powder, there is no build-up whatsoever. I use the medium shade and it looks natural with golden medium! It applies very smooth & even, with no blotches. I can honestly say my complexion has never looked so even. My make-up seems to last much longer in the day also. I will never switch back to the loose mineral veil. Great product! Give it a try!
Not the same
I've used Bare Minerals for almost 3 years now & this is the first product I'm disappointed with. I was using the pressed touch up veil in TINTED before they came out with different shades & it was my holy grail, everyday, favorite product. It seems like the formula is completely different. It is chalky, doesn't go on the face as well & there is a lot of fallout. Also, it broke in my purse within a week. I've never had my tinted veil break. I will be searching high & low for the regular tinted shade.
"All Broke Up"
Loved this product when I first got it, was great to put in purse for quick touch ups. Did not last long in the palette, as it broke into many pieces and was then very messy. Rather than throwing away, I've placed into a container to break up into finer pieces to continue to use it in my mineral veils container... hate to waste it. Would not purchase this product again because of the breakage...
