Rated 1 out of 5 by NaturalGirlOnaMission 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.

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?
Rated 5 out of 5 by beausoccerbabe 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by printrswife 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LezlieAnnH 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Yaya 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by a019 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RivM 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by SCarolinaGirl 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautylovekcmo 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!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TammyJ 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.... :(
Rated 5 out of 5 by BMissy Mineral vail
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,
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah822 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!
Rated 2 out of 5 by VictoriaN 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.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cs0903 "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...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcia 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunocean 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kkelly514 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by shellbell12 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 :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by In LOVE About time....
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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Amleigh 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by martinaj78 Thank you BE!
So glad you guys put some tint in this stuff! The translucent made my face look a bit pale.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenny224 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by imsh 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by SAT76 Broken Pieces
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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lorriane 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nonstar 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.

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!!!
