Mineral Veil - null
I was worried about trying this as my skin is very dry...don't think twice! It seems to melt into your skin instead of laying on top it it and looking 'cakey'. The very very subtle 'glow' it gives your complexion is wonderful, not 'shiny' or even 'dewy' looking, more a look of Health. Frequently I'll wear it all by itself for a real natural look, try it...you will probably love the flawless and finished look of your skin.
A must have!
I love using this before and after I apply my bare minerals matte foundation!
Fab start to finish
It is so easy to use. Doesn't settle into my lines and doesn't make me look older.Helps with my oily T-Zone. I am a "mature" woman and I like the soft gauze like finish it puts on my skin that makes everything look moist and fresh.
Perfect finishing touch
The Mineral Veil gives the perfect finish for the face. It is pretty much invisible but gives that special something to the face.
Absolutely love it! It makes my skin look very smooth and soft and it's really easy to use. I don't know if it's mineral veil's magic or not...my face usually gets quite oily towards the end of the day, but, with mineral veil, no more shiny/oily face!
My only complain is that the powder is so fine that it flies everywhere when I apply it... it gets on my shirt and counter :(
Does its job well
The mineral veil is light and helps set your makeup. It works pretty well. I don't use the primer so it might work better if I used them both.
Be warned: it's a very fine powder and you don't need to open the container all the way to get it out. I only uncover one of the four holes and that still gets plenty in the cap.
I am really glad that I had started using different BE products sequentially versus at the same time because I think I would have been more hesitant to try some after my experience with mineral veil. I had started using the skin care products for about a month and my skin was responding well. Then I had started using the original foundation for about one and a half weeks and my skin was still responding well. Then I tried the original mineral veil and the first two days of usage were great as I liked the flawless finish it provided. Days three and four were not good at all as my skin started to break out; I stopped using the product at which point my skin slowly began to heal. Although I don't know for sure, I suspect it was the cornstarch in the product that clogged my pores and, if you have acne-prone skin, putting cornstarch on your face may provide any bacteria there with food to grow. It could not have been the brushes I was using as the foundation brush had not even been used for 2 weeks and the brush I was using for the mineral veil was brand new. My skin has done well with other BE products and none of them have the ingredients that are in the original mineral veil as I have made a point to stay away from them. I have also switched to the matte foundation and it provides such a beautiful, natural finish and controls oil that I feel like it fulfills a lot of the same functions as the extra layer of mineral veil would do.
The mineral veil is the perfect finishing touch. It helps absorb the oil on my face, and keeps oil from being too noticeable later in the day. I swear by it!
I use the mineral veil everyday and mid day for touch ups. Really helps control shine. Great product.
I love the bare minerals and mineral veil makeup, but I'm going to complain about the packaging. I originally had the starter kit, and once that ran out, I purchased the larger version of the mineral veil. You are supposed to tap out a small amount into the cap, but every time I so much as tilt the mineral veil, a ton of it slips out and goes everywhere. Now this is not just the first time I'm using it, it's every single time. Not sure what changed between the last one I had, and this version, but it doesn't make it easy on my mornings having to clean up mineral veil off everything.
Doesn't have desired effect
I've been using BE products for 5 years. I bought the mineral veil when I first started purchasing BE foundation. When I use it immediately after putting on foundation, I actually notice my T-zone becomes oilier later on as opposed to not using it. However, when I apply it later on, after I am a little oiler, it does take the oiliness away. It gives a dusty look to my face, in my opinion, and kind of has a counter-effect to the "warmth" product. I haven't noticed that it works for me like the site claims that it should. I won't buy this again. It does last a long time though.
I love the loose mineral veil. I use it before I put my foundation on and then I use it again for final coverage. I get so many complements on how good I look. All the products used together make the difference. This is the first time I have enjoyed using beauty products!!
A Must Have!!
I am so glad I tried this product! I have combination skin, but I fight oil. This is the most amazing product. Whether I wear it over BB Cream, or under Bare Minerals Foundation, it gives me a flawless, polished look that is hard for me to ever pull off given the oily nature of my skin! I stay looking less oily all day long, and even when I use the oil blot sheet mid-day as I do, I find less oil on it! Definitely a product I will continue using!
I love the shimmer this product finishes my face with each morning and I don't feel like a sparkling tween! This product gives a great glow without looking childish, however my 17 yr old cousin rocks this product too!
The original foundation and warm are great products, some mornings though, I skip warm and just add the mineral veil, because it gives such a 3 dimensional look, that I don't feel I even need the warm. I just love every BE product!
The perfect finishing touch for everyone.
Even if I run out of Bare Essentials mineral foundation, this makes any make-up look good. Just apply and polish as usual. Love It!
I have problems with my skin coloration...red, brown, and white splotches...along with semi-oily skin. I use the matte foundation, a BUNCH of concealer, and then LOVE the way the mineral veil tops it all off. I feel confident and beautiful without the weight of other foundations. The mineral veil works great to hide/absorb oil/shine throughout the day too!!
This powder really gives a photo ready finish. Legit soft focus! I have light to medium acne and after i apply the foundation and this mineral veil, they almost disappear. my photos come out pretty, and I don't have to "photoshop" my acne away anymore! Only problem is Anytime I don't wear this makeup people at work ask if I'm sick lol.
Mineral veil keeps its promise!
I love this product. It keeps it's promise especially during the summer when make up from the past would have melted off! Bare essentials mineral veil stays put.
Great finishing powder
I really like the Mineral Veil when combined with my regular liquid foundation. It gives it a really nice finish.
Best Overall Product
This product totally brings everything together. It is a must have! Helps minimize my pores big time, while putting the finishing blending touches onto concealer, foundation, and all-over face color. Makes you look like you're photo shoot ready every time!
Love it - love it - love it!
Love bare minerals. Have used the original and the tinted....love both
Makes My Skin Look Silky Smooth!
This is the best loose setting powder I have ever used. I use this to set my BM foundation, and then use the pressed mineral veil "Ready Veil" in translucent for touch-ups throughout the day (I have very oily skin). This controls oil SO well, and offers a poreless, matte, airbrushed look (no easy task for oily skin like mine).The tinted veil works for me in the summer when I'm tan, but if you're lighter than medium skintone, it may be too dark for you. I have repurchased, several times. Make's skin look so smooth and beautiful!
I have used Mineral Veil for years & won't use anything else. It goes on so smooth and it is just the perfect finishing touch to my make-up. Before I tried Bare Essentials I had problems with my skin being dry or broken out, but not since I have been using Bare Essential products. I LOVE BARE ESSENTIALS.
I used bareMinerals years ago.. stopped then recently I've come back to it. There is NO getting around it, bareMinerals is one of the best make ups around. It lasts forever and it covers up so naturally. I love it and just purchased a compact for cheek colors. Love that too.. great to throw in your purse.
Anyway, I'm back.. I've learned!!!!
I just look better
Since I switched to Bare Mineral makeup - I just look better.
Thank you for these products
product okay but packaging needs work
i have had a lot of difficulty getting the right amount of this product to come out of the holes. mostly too much comes out and then the container is filled with it and i have to pour it back. then when i limit it to just one hole not enough comes out and i shake it and end up with too much again. so something needs to be adjusted. maybe the hole sizes should be smaller since the powder is so fine. when you use too much it looks ghostly on you and a little too shimmery. so getting the amount right is essential. otherwise i like it okay. it does minimize pores somewhat. and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin like any other kind of skin makeup from anywhere else does.
I've been using Bare Escentuals for 7 years - Mineral Veil is always the final touch. I also use it as a touch up late in the day.
Love this Powder!
I first tried Bare Escentuals/bareMinerals foundation in their lightest color in 2007. I loved it and still do. I also purchased the Mineral Veil. It is a great powder finish. I use it on any brand of foundation I might use and it looks great.
I still prefer bareMinerals foundation as my main go-to foundation. My skin has gotten a bit dry over the past couple of years. I had oily skin as a teen and in my 20s. 30s & 40s I had T-Zone skin. In my 50s normal skin (yea!). Then once I first entered my 60s my skin became more dry. So the next time I purchase Mineral Veil I'll purchase the hydrating type.
I am young with acne and some powders or foundations will cause even more acne with BE I don't have to worry about it . I was using the clinque powder ,it darkened my skin and didn't cover well, I switched to mineral veil and am so happy with the results!My skin feels amazing when it's on and when I take it off. I used to believe you didn;t need powder well boy I was wrong it makes so much of a difference. Thanks BE!
Never Leave Home Without It
This has got to be the best powder I have ever used! I really love this stuff, I never ever leave home without my Mineral Veil. Gives you the best visable pore reduction of any other product i`ve found yet plus such a beautiful glow. I just ordered the pressed powder compact so i dont make such a mess in my purse...cant wait.
