Mineral Veil - null
Perfect Finishing Powder
I have the original and I love it. This item is a must-have step for a flawless complexion. It helps to give your face the "natural make-up" look. I don't know how else to describe it except that it just makes everything look soft and blended on your face, very natural. And if you use the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener, this is a must-have to go along with that. Literally makes the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes disappear!
Sometimes I'll just wear the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener and the original mineral veil, or just the original foundation and the original mineral veil, if I'm feeling really lazy.
I'm excited to try the hydrating one next time!
can be without this
this is more than a finishing powder, I use it both with makeup and just a quick dusting if I am going out and don't have time to put on makeup. It gives my skin a luminous glow and covers imperfections without looking cake-y. Fantastic product.
Makeup bag ESSENTIAL right here!
This powder is perfect to finish off your makeup look every morning. It goes on so softly, gives you a soft matte finish and keeps everything in place all day. It just gives your skin a gorgeous finish! This product is tried and true, you won't regret making this purchase because you will use it at least once a day!
Hydrating Mineral Veil
I have all of the BE face/eye products and I love them all. The last thing I purchased was the hydrating mineral veil, which I adore. For me it was between the illuminating and the hydrating because I wanted a little shimmer, but I wanted natural. The illuminating was a little bit too sparkly for me, but the hydrating has plenty of shimmer. It's like a toned-down illuminating. It soaks up any excess oil and leaves such a dewey and natural looking finish. I absolutely love it.
I like how finished my makeup looks when I end with the mineral veil. I also like that on a day when I'm in a hurry or want to look gently polished without the full makeup I can use the veil alone with just a touch of blush and go! Will be a go to plan for summer.
A bit chalky...
I have been using Mineral Veil since I first started with BE. Normally I have used the Illuminating Mineral Veil, but while in a boutique recently I thought I would give the hydrating formula a try. It does have a bit of sparkle in it, which is something I love about the Illuminating formula. However, for me this product feels a bit chalky when being applied and bit "rough" if you will. That being said, it still works wonders to even and freshen everything up, and while I don't feel that it is necessarily more "hydrating" it still looks flawless. Not sure yet if I would purchase this formula again or stick with my go to.
Tinted is Amazing
I have been using the tinted mineral veil since I was 18. I love it. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts and this product does not irritate my skin at all. It is lightweight and does not feel like you have anything on your face. Will continue to use this for many years to come.
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.
