Rated 4 out of 5 by maychel Fabulous product! Perhaps redesign the container.
This product is great! I have combination skin and it is difficult to find a moisturizer that fully hydrates the dry areas without causing more blemishes. I get blemishes towards my hairline and on the top of my nose and dry flaky patches at the base of my nose, (usually only in the winter, but my skin is dry otherwise.) I started using this product in the middle of the winter along with my normal facial lotion for extra moisture, because I live in Michigan in an area with low humidity. The dry, flaky patches that were around my nose disappeared in less than three weeks! AND it didn't cause me to develop blemishes. Now that summer temperatures are on their way in, I've added toner to my daily facial cleansing routine. Before I started using this product, I used toner every other day during the summers, so my routine hasn't been forced to change much.
The powder has yellow/neutral undertones as opposed to the original mineral veil's pink/warm undertones. This allows me to choose what type of finish I want to have on my skin, which has slightly olive undertones, (I use medium beige foundation.) The powder also has more shimmer to it than the original, but that is not noticeable when it is applied. It is a great way to add a little variety to your usual makeup routine!
The only real issue I have with this product is the container. The powder is so fine, (possibly finer than the original mineral veil, but I'm not sure), and the hole for dispensing it is so large, I feel like I waste a lot every time I use it! In four months, I used approximately 1.5 grams of the original mineral veil and in the same time, I used approximately 3 grams of the hydrating mineral veil. Some attention to the container design might be worth looking into in order to make the customer feel like they're getting a better value!
But overall, it is a wonderful product!!!

I love the mineral veil. It is one of my favorite products that I use daily. It gives my face a flawless and fresh finish.

The mineral veil to me is the secret star of the BM product line. I switch between the original foundation & Ready, but I can never give up on my Illuminating MV. It creates the perfect finish to any look, and the glow it gives is subtle enough that it does not make you look like Edward Cullen. Cannot recommend it enough. I go through it so quickly because I like it both under & over the foundation to control shine & sweat. Also, I think it makes everything stay better throughout the whole day.

I like Bare Minerals makeup but Mineral Veil is far and away the best product in the line. It's great for setting makeup and for touch-ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JadeVJ Another go to product of BM.
I love this product. I have only ever tried the original formula and tinted. But I am really interested in the hydrating and illuminating ones as well just for a little change. I did not care much for the tinted because it has a reddish tint, and that doesn't look good on my face, so I use the faux tan over tinted mineral veil and warmth because it's more brown than red. Anyways, the original mineral veil is great because it goes on so lightly and immediately absorbs oil. If I use this when I first apply my makeup, it's rare I have to use my Ready Mineral Veil to touch up. Highly recommended, and the price is right for this finishing powder. It lasts a very long time for me.

I am now using the hydrating mineral veil and I am not sure if I like it or not. I do like the original formula and think that it is awesome.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LJandRay An Incredible Product I Have Been Using For Years"
I have been using Mineral Veil for years and years. I love this product because it hides my larger pores. No shades to worry about matching to my skin tone. Mineral Veil gives my complexion that polished appearance. It is the only cosmetic, other than lipstick or mascara, that I panic over should I run out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by miloco So soft!
I had been using mineral veil for years and loved it, but when I saw the hydrating version I decided to try it even though I had to purchase a special brush for it. Well worth it! It really makes my dry skin look smoother, I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JEAN14 GREAT AS A FOUNDATION AND NOT SHINY.
I have used Bare Minerals for years and was using the foundation, until I discovered the tinted Mineral Veil. I now use it as my foundation and it blends well on my uneven mostly medium complexion. I have slept with it on but was not concerned about it clogging my pores, since it is so pure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine95 Hydrating Mineral Veil smooth as silk
I began using the Original Mineral Veil two months ago which was great, but recently switched to Hydrating as my combination skin became dryer in spots, despite using an oil-free moisturizer. I thought the Original was a fine powder...Hydrating is even more so. It makes my skin feel smooth as silk! It has the complete day-long, air-brushed look of the Original, with hydration to boot, without looking shiny at the end of the day. I don't think I could ask for more of this product, it's a must-have. It does come out VERY quickly though, even with having only one of the sifter holes open. My recommendation to BE would be to have smaller sifter holes for extra fine products like Hydrating Mineral Veil. I LOVE my Hydrating Mineral Veil!
Rated 3 out of 5 by NJBabe HYDRATING MINERAL VEIL
I have been using mineral veil for at least 8 years and could not go without it. When the Hydrating Mineral Veil was introduced, I thought that since I have dry skin it would be better for me. I am 66 years old and don't think this is a good match for me. Regular mineral veil works great, but the hydrating mineral veil seems to settle in my lines and wrinkles whereas original mineral veil did not. I will have to order another of the original and pass the hydrating on to someone younger.

A gorgeous finishing touch to the beautiful palette put on any face! I love the different types of veil available too. I personally love the brightening and the SPF ones!

Have been using the Tinted Mineral Veil for the past 3 years. Most days this is all I use because of the easy of application. After the gym I just need to tap and go.
One of the best products out there.

a perfect finish to makeup
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine55 Great for that perfect finished look
I used to use Bare minerals, then I stopped......but now I am back for good. My skin looks great and younger (people don't believe me when I tell them my age). I don't like that overmade up look and mineral veil finishes off without that look. I cant thank all of you enough for the great products that you have!

I really do love the hydrating mineral veil!! It amazing! It hydrate's and doesn't make me oily makes my skin glowing soft and supple! Does not break me out at all must try!!

This product really is that finishing touch that just makes your whole face come together and look radiant. It sets your makeup to stay in place. For example, I used to apply blush over my Mineral Veil thinking I would blend the blush into my face if I did blush first... blush didn't last all day. I tried putting the blush under my Mineral Veil, and to my surprise, my blush was not disturbed when I buffed the Mineral Veil over it, and it lasted all day. I wouldn't go without it :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by CousCous Great finishing powder with a little bit of a glow
I've been a fan of the mineral veil since I started using Bare Minerals, so I was excited to try this new "Illuminating" finish. I was a little skeptical when I first got it because the veil looks almost glittery when you pour it into the lid, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it looked on my skin when I had finished blending it in. As with all Bare Minerals products, a little goes a long way, so if you put too much on at once, that glittery look might be reflected on your skin. However, if you stick to the "swirl, tap, buff" process, you should be good to go. This product is great to keep shininess away, while still adding a nice glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gisele Tinted Mineral Veil - Perfection!
I am in my mid 50's, fair skin, darkbrown eyes and white hair. As soon as I celebrated my 50th birthday, I discovered it was time to lighten the lip colors I had become accustomed to and decrease the shade of my foundation.
I discovered bareMinerals .... and immediately fell in love with the following products:
Advanced Protection: SPF20Moisterizer
Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer
Tinted Mineral Veil (I generally use the Mineral Veil as my foundation)
The Tinted Mineral Veil offers the lightest coverage and smoothest finish for my fair skin, with limited color. And, works beautifully over the Well Rested Eye Brightener or the Bisque Concealer.
The Prime Time product is a perfect base for the Tinted Mineral Veil and extends it's beauty throughout a long day at the office.
My face feels PERFECT, always!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Belles Over or under, it's a great product
If you ever wonder why you need to put powder on top of powder, look at the difference in texture between mineral foundation and mineral finishing powder. The super fine texture of the mineral veils gives an air-brushed appearance to the skin that you can't get with mineral foundation alone.
Original Mineral Veil has become too drying for my dry/sensitive skin. So, I don't use it anymore. When I did, I saw it as an essential final step to make my skin look its best.
Instead, I use Hydrating Mineral Veil. I've recently started using it as my primer, because my new sunscreen stays tacky no matter how long I put it on before makeup. (I can't use primers because of an intolerance to dimethicone.) It works perfectly! Sometimes, I put it on over my foundation, too, but I've been using Radiances for finishing instead with great success - but only when I have used HMV as a primer. Otherwise, HMV is my favorite finisher.
Illuminating Mineral Veil (formerly Feather Light) makes a great facial highlighter and can make a dull complexion look radiant. It does glow. Some might even say it sparkles, but when it's applied sparingly, the effect is luminous rather than sparkly.
I use Tinted Mineral Veil on clients only. I thought it might work as an all-over faux tan for summer for me, but the color just isn't right for that use. However, as a finishing powder for darker skins, it excels. You never have to worry about a whitening effect from it.

This make-up does what it says! It helps keep my skin hydrated and my make-up lasts all day. What more can you ask for?
Rated 5 out of 5 by MdvlCastle My Go-To!
I've been using Bare Minerals for about 9 years, and while I really like the majority of the products, Mineral Veil is by far my favorite. I am not someone who wears a lot of makeup, and there are days when I will only be out for a few minutes, so I just swirl, tap, and buff a little Mineral Veil on! It covers the majority of the imperfections in my skin. When I'm wearing a full face Mineral Veil gives me a flawless finish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahDW93 I can't live a day without it.
First I have to say, I hate how in the start-up kit you get a big foundation and a small Mineral Veil. I use the veil more than the foundation! Some days, I wake up with flawless skin (I know, I don't get it either) and so all I use to finish my face is the mineral veil. It is amazing. I can only describe it as such. It keeps my face rom getting oily, and locks in the moisture from my morning moisturizer, yet it doesn't cause any breakouts on me with the sensitive skin. I can only say one thing: buy it right now. It will change your world. I understand the price is shocking, but the large tubs have lasted me for over a year, so the money is worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MiMi Love my mineral veil
I love love love my mineral veil! My face is not complete until I've applied my mineral veil. It so soft and perfect, adds perfection to my skin and makes my eyelashes fuller for easier application of mascara. It tones down my blush if its too heavy. I use the powder and carry a compact for touch ups during the day. During that time of the month when my face is a little oily, it's super to get rid of the shine. I love my mineral veil, I've tried several of the different kinds from tinted to sparkly. I love them all! Thank You God for my mineral veil!!

Do not skip this step!! It will leave you with a flawless finish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FIESTY Don't skip this last step!!
At first, I was skeptical as to whether or not this product was necessary. It totally is!!! Especially during the summer or winter months when you would either sweat or have snow flakes falling from he sky. Mineral veil prevents any breakups or separation in powder. I absolutely love it and this product is definately a must have for your BE collection!
