READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum Spf 15 - null
Better than loose mineral veil
After reading reviews, I purchased both the light and the medium - I wear the medium beige matte in the loose foundation and the Medium tan in the Ready Made foundation. I like both the light and the medium in this touch up veil, I think the light works best for me but I can get away with the medium as well. I don't use the pouf that came with it, I use a retraceable brush and lightly touch the compact. This is so much easier and less messy than the loose veil. I have not tried this with the loose foundation, only with the ready made foundation. I don't wear the loose foundation much anymore since I switched to the ready made foundation.
Great for touch ups!
I use this Mineral Veil mid afternoon when I need a quick touch up at work. I have oil skin and by 2pm my skin tends to be shiny and my pores look huge. I've always been a fan of Mineral Veil and put it on every morning but to have the READY version is awesome since I can have it in my make up bag to go. I've noticed that when I put this on, it completely takes away the shine and by 9pm I'm still shine-free. What's best is that my pores look smaller. I use a medium beige in the original foundation and bought the medium shade mineral veil. Works great! There is a smell to it that I don't like, that's why I give it 4 stars instead of 5, but other than that it's great!
Best powder ever
This powder is Amazing! I put it on over regular liquid foundation as well as the BM foundation and it makes my face look flawless all day long regardless of the foundation I chose that day. I am usually blotting my face by mid morning, but with this stuff I don't need to blot at all. I go home at the end of the day looking as good as I did when I first put my makeup on in the morning. Will continue to buy this for a long time
Mineral Veil Replacement
I know there are mixed feelings about this, but for me this works better than mineral veil. Mineral Veil would give me that beautiful air-brushed look and was awesome for evening out slight imperfections in my makeup application, but after getting this, I don't think I'm going back. I got the Translucent one so that I could compare to the Original Mineral Veil, and this gives me the same airbrushed appearance as MV, but makes my make up last longer and it seems to be holding moisture in better on my face (so maybe this is best for people with normal to dry skin).
It comes with a little application pad that fits inside the compact so you don't need to dedicate a brush to it, although some people may prefer using a brush. If you do use a brush though, be very careful on portion control - this is thicker than Mineral Veil. I usually just use the pad that came with it and brush it very lightly all over my face.
Planning to order a tinted one soon :)
Tried this since it was almost free with the "Your perfect pick face" I was in love with original ready mineral veil but this offers so much more. The tint is perfect ( get matched don't guess color seems to run a little lighter then what you may think) you aren't stuck with just a light version on veil. Which is great since my summer tan is fading and doesn't lighten up the Ready Foundation that I just applied :( my favorite parts is you have several color options to choose from and once you are done you can just take this with you for touch ups. As to before I'd have to take my Ready foundation, brush and veil. Now when I need a quick touch up I just grab this and good to go. The puffer that's included works well no lugging around multiple products. You get a nice even finish look with the veil and puffer pad. on days were I don't need to get all dolled up I can use the concealer ,this veil and I get nice coverage with the RIGHT shade for ME! Gotta love the convince and time saving it gives you.
I "like" it.
This is not like regular mineral veil. It goes on rather thick/caky if you go too heavy handed. You need the right brush for this also. You don't want to use a buki type brush or even the full flawless face brush. The regular flawless face brush will do or one of the sheer "heavenly" type brushes. A very little bit goes a long way. It doesn't give you the "air brushed" look like regular mineral veil does. It is very much for on the go "touch ups" that you made need during the day. If I was traveling, I'd take all my READY make-up but would also take my loose Mineral Veil (I'm using the Perfecting Light Mineral Veil right now.....can only get it at QVC). I'd recommend it for touch ups like the name of the product says but it is NOT a replacement for my regular Mineral Veil.
Thank you BE!
So glad you guys put some tint in this stuff! The translucent made my face look a bit pale.
Perfect Mineral Veil
I've struggled with finding a good mineral veil for some time. I have light skin, but some olive undertones. The translucent was always far too light and gave me a bit of a white cast, especially around the nose. The tinted worked great in the summer, but was too dark in the winter. I purchased the Ready Mineral Veil in Light and I love it. It's still incredibly lightweight and sheer just like the original, but it doesn't leave the white cast on my face. It does not deposit much color, you definitely need the foundation underneath, but it works as a great setting powder.
Like it better than the powder
I like this better than the powder because it doesn't go on as thick so it doesn't make you pale. I also like that I can bring it with me anywhere. I don't like that it is a bit messy after a few uses though, but that's the price of powder!
I really like this product and it goes great on my skin. I was excited because it was something that I could throw in my purse to do touch-ups throughout the day. My only problem, and it is a big one for me - is that within three days of using it the entire product broke into tiny pieces. It is no longer convenient to use because when I open it makes a large mess!
Better Than Average
If you're looking for a product that will make your 40 something year old face look like it did when it was 20 something, this product is not for you. If you're looking for a product that won't clog your pores, covers shine, and won't cake up on your face, this product is for you. It works for me and if I sleep in it my face doesn't break out. I like it. I'm in my early 40's and I'm realistic about face products.
Good product- BUT- "If it ain't broke don't fix it
I bought the READY Touch UP Veil when it was first released as a new product. I have the both the translucent and the tinted versions. The translucent was too light for my skin, the tinted was better- but slightly dark for my paler, winter complexion. I purchased the new version in "Light" because I thought it would be the perfect match (darker than translucent, lighter than tinted), but it looks almost identical to the translucent! I am not returning it, but I would advise anyone interested in this to go a shade darker than you think you need, and next time I will do the same. The product itself is the best finishing powder I have EVER used (and there have been MANY). It blurs out my imperfections and keeps my foundation matte-looking longer than others I've tried. On hot, humid days, the oiliness still comes thru in my T-zone area, but it is not as bad as it has been using other setting powders. This is definitely the BEST powder I have ever used, and I would definitely recommend it. The fact that it has sunscreen in it is an added bonus for me.
A real let down
I've had a horrible series of surgeries on my arm and face related to a gunshot wound. I tried this and was so completely let down. I have cried and cried. I just want to be beautiful again! I've used your products since 1999! So I don't understand how this could happen! I would love to be on one of your shows!!!
