Mineral Veil - null
I use the Mineral Veil on top of my bareskin foundation and it helps to achieve a flawless and long-wearing coverage! It is lightweight and so easy to apply with the brush! I highly recommend this product!! =)
This is one of my favorite products, I love the flawless airbrush look I get. I always wear it.
Original, tinted, and hydrate version
The original and tinted are great for me. I didn't bother to try the illuminated version because I'm more of a matte type. For the hydrating version, that's where I took a star off. It left little sparkle on my face which I absolutely cannot stand and I found that a certain BM produce has these random sparkle in them. But these sparkles were not fine enough or it wer not evenly distrubute on my face. So it looks like random sparkle on my face...
Love this! Gives a great glow!
This product is awesome! It gives you a great refreshing glow! I just had my second baby and have little sleep and am exhausted but you would never know! Everyone has been commenting on how great and refreshed I look! I normally used the tinted veil but this is now my go to!
I love the glow it gives my skin. It goes on light and not heavy like other products. It does not irritate my skin. Goes on light and feels light.
Love, Love, Love IT
My skin looks luminous and I glow. I have good skin, but I'm 66 and can't say I glow often! buy this. You won't regret it
No Matter Your Age!!
I started using Bare Minerals in my 30's. I am thrilled that I can continue to use my most favorite products into my 50's! I have always loved the Mineral Veil, and the last few years I have used the Hydrating Mineral Veil for my dry skin. It is magic!!
Still My Favorite Powder
I have been using Mineral Veil since 1999, and it is still my go-to setting powder. I love it! I love how silky smooth it feels on my face, and how it seems to give me a light glow. I don't love how it is beginning to settle into my fine lines, but I AM approaching 40 so I guess it is to be expected.
I absolutely love this product! It's lightweight and feels really good on my skin. The only downside to the Mineral Veil is that it's a little pricey, but I'd rather pay a little more for a product that feels good on my skin than a product that feels like a heavy mask.
I have used this product before, and just love it! It is so lightweight. I use the BE primer, foundation and the mineral veil. When you get to be my age, your skin has lost some of its glow (at least for me). And this gives you a glow that doesn't look shiny or glittery, and you don't even feel like you are wearing it. It is a must have for my beauty routine!
A little goes a long way! Using mineral veil over your all your makeup tricks gives an airbrush finish. It just seems to "set" my makeup. Also, I have oily skin and it helps keep the dreaded shine away for hours.
Can't do with out this
I love the original mineral veil. It covers minor flaws, does not settle in my wrinkles, does not look powdery or chalky, it's invisible. And best of all, it has no fragrance odor at all-I'm fragrance sensitive. I get so many compliments on my skin.
I love this product. It really helps control my oily look and feel and holds my makeup in place
Thank you for making a tinted mineral veil.
I am a Warm Deep Matte and this disappears into my skin , just wonderful !
I absolutely love the mineral veil. It goes on so easy and lots of times I will just use it alone with no other foundation. It covers beautifully and gives a fantastic tint to my skin.
My favorite setting powder
I use this in both Original (translucent) and Illumininating. It is a Holy Grail product for me. I use Original more, as it gives a flawless, matte finish that works with any makeup look. The Illuminating is beautiful, with a fine sparkle that is noticeable, but doesn't make you look like a shimmery disco ball. I like it in summer, or around the holidays.
Most of my life I've had super-oily skin, and this combined with the Original Foundation was a godsend, especially in the days before primers. I've been using this for nearly two decades. I had given up on my foundation lasting till I tried this. Powders would always cake or melt off with my foundations. I can use this with any foundation, and it sets it.
When my skin is really oily, or it's really hot outside, I put this over AND under the Original Foundation. My makeup stays on, and stays flawless all day. My skin stays shine-free. The layers needed are light, so I still don't feel like I'm wearing anything on my face. Dusting it on the eyelids before using shadows helps prevent them from creasing (I did this before eyeshadow primers were available).
I love the translucent mineral veil! It provides the perfect finish to seal in my foundation and make it last longer on my oily skin. I suggest using it before you apply your blush, bronzer, and/or highlight so that it doesn't cover up what you did!
Great product for smooth finish and looks great in pictures!
not for me
I bought this in the store i was excited to replace my normal moral veil and i thought i could use it as a highlighter as well.
It is very lightweight which did not work to be a highlighter.
The only reason I don't like it is that in the sun its too glittery for me. Others say its barely there but i just don't like the look of it for everyday.
I am keeping it for nights out because it does do what its supposed to do give you a sheer clean finish.
Couldn't be better for aging skin
absolutely wonderful product...will not use anything else
I use the Mineral Veil over Complexion Rescue and like how light it is. I have freckles that I don't want to cover and the Mineral Veil seals in my makeup without being thick or covering my freckles. I feel like you do need a spray sealer over this, though, because if I hug my dog, sometimes I get splotchy patches from where my face touched her fur.
Mineral Veil - Hydrating?! It seems to have disappeared.
I know that I am in the minority, considerably, with this review, but Mineral Veil just did not do (for me, anyway) what it is touted to do. I was very disappointed with the lack-luster results after giving it a decent amount of time to work its charms, and, sadly, it did not. It left my skin parched and patchy with too much of a “disco ball” effect, believe it or not, and that was after applying the veil to clean, exfoliated, healthy, smooth and hydrated skin using a very light application with tapping, careful blending and buffing using the recommended brush and / or tool(s). I know of course that Mineral Veil is an award-winning product and considered the holy grail, a miracle in a jar (or container, in this case) so to speak, but that was not my experience, which is fine, as you find out these things through trial and error. I returned the product with no regrets for having given it a shot.
Great Hydrating Mineral Veil but there's a issue.
I just received my order today for my Hydrating Mineral Veil which I normally get. I was more then half way out of my old one so I decided to order a new one. Well, to my disappointment, the sealed container was half way or a little less then half way full. Almost looked the same as my old container that I have been using for a while. Very odd. Is it a manufacture mistake where they don't fill the container all the way? Usually they are full...
Product itself is great. Love the Hydrating Mineral Veil but I won't be purchasing anymore if this is now what I get for 20.00 + dollars...
Perfect finishing touch. I wear the original mineral veil
tinted mineral veil
I love regular mineral veil and have used it for years. Thought I would try the tinted. I don't like it at all. It's very orange. I look like an Oompa Loompa.
One of my favorite bare mineral products
Live this, it really finishes my makeup routine. Have used this for many years. I rarely have to touch up, unless I'm going out in the evening. The longer it's on my skin the better it looks, wouldn't be without the tinted mineral veil.
illuminating mineral veil has that special glow
I like the "illuminating" because it gives you that little bit of sparkle. It's not like you dusted glitter all over your face or anything, not that at all, it's just that little extra special "glow". It brightens up your face whereas the regular mineral veil does not.
On the fence
I am a little on the fence about this. The texture is the same like original mineral veil. I thought I may be able to use it without the foundation if I didn't want to put on the whole system. The pigment is not quite right for me without the foundation. I am not sure it really adds anything to the foundation powder by having a pigment.
I think the original may be more luminous.
Product is great, packaging is not
I love the powder - pretty much hate the container. I so hope they address two issues with this product: the size is WAY TOO SMALL for everyday use -- it is a waste of plastic when you have to keep reordering. Not good for a company supposedly concerned about overall health and being conscious about the environment. There's a disconnect here. Secondly, it is very hard to operate the "filter level" with the tiny holes to get the product. It takes so long to get to the powder, especially toward the end when there's not much left. But you get so little of the powder originally, I feel like I want to use all of it. Please redesign this product packaging! And please make available the 28g size, which I got in some "special offer" and could not get again. So frustrating on many levels. But as I said, I love the product and how it is actually healthy makeup. That is the reason I am committed to this product and the other loose powders.
Great, but not a good touch up powder...
I absolutely love this product to finish any make up look and adds the most healthy glow while keeping things matte. However, it tends to look a bit cakey if I use it to touch up throughout the day. A great product!
