bareSkin Perfecting Veil - null
This used to be my go-to finishing veil powder....now, not so much
With recent changes to the formula and color, I am so sad to say that I now have to find a new product to replace this veil, which used to be my favorite! The original formula offered lighter color options for those of us with fair skin, and even the lightest shade (light to medium) is WAY to dark and appears like a bronzer on pale skin. This is the saddest change the BE has made to products, IMO, because their original formula for this veil was AMAZING! It provided a soft, transulescent finish that was never cakey or thick. It WAS my go to, now I'm going to look elsewhere.
Bare Skin Perfecting Veil
Provides a nice glow after make up has been applied.
FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL VEIL!
I'M A HUGE BARE MINERALS FAN. WITH MY SKIN GETTING OILER, DARK PIGMENTATION &FINE LINES. I HAD TO PURCHASE THIS PERFECTING VEIL DUE TO THE FACT ITS LOADED WITH VITAMINS, ANTIOXIDANTS +SPF. MY SKIN IS MY BEST ASSET. I LOVE THE WAY BARE MINERALS PERFECTING VEIL STOPS OIL PRODUCTION. IT SETS MY MAKEUP PERFECTLY, SOFT & DOESN'T CREASE. OF COURSE I'M USING IN CONJUNCTION WITH BRIGHTENING SERUM. FOR MY SKIN THATS THE PERFECT COMBO. I'M TREATING MY SKIN WHILE I HAVE GORGEOUS COVERAGE. THE ONLY NEGATIVE IS I HIT PAN ALREADY AFTER MONTH.
Was so excited
I was really excited to try this and had high hopes..sadly it didn't work for me due to the color being so off. I am typically a medium shade and with it being winter I ordered the lightest-medium/light and it was way darker than expected and did not blend with my skin/makeup, was very noticeable. I tried to change my shade for the next order but there is not a lighter shade. With that being said this would definitely not work for those with fair/light skin (as noted I am usually a medium shade and too dark for me)
Totally different than original veil
Not only are the same colors not offered as the original veil but the packaging is a pain(lifting up the compact to place the puff), the veil offers less coverage than the original, and the puff is so thin that it is worn out by the 3rd time using it. Never get this again. Back to the drawing board.
My favorite Bare Minerals Product
I have tried other powders to set my makeup and they always leave me with a powdery finish, this powder doesn't. I love this powder and always go back to it. My only complaint is the packaging could be better and spf would be a great addition the product..
Great product offset by poor case
I love this product but am reluctant to buy it again. The clasp on the case broke (never dropped, never carried in luggage, pocketbook, etc.) after very light use--and the makeup shattered and could no longer be applied. I see, from other reviews, that I am not the only one to have this experience. If Bare Minerals improved the case, I'd buy this again without hesitation. Until then, though, I am in search of a replacement product.
Too dark for the lightest shades
I was hoping that this little bit more color would help "hide" the flaws thoughout the day. While it did that some, it was more noticible because it was much darker than my fairly light foundation. I am now using it as warmth/blush to add color to my cheeks throughout the day. Truly disappointing.
Love this powder! The perfect mattifying finishing product
When I first tried this product in Light to Medium, I used the included puff and had disappointing results. The puff picks up way too much product and made me look orange and dusty in the areas I used it. But when I tried the same shade again using the Precision Face Brush, it was exactly what I needed! My face looks shiny after applying BareSkin foundation, and the Perfecting Veil completely eliminates my shine, while adding a truly soft-focus finish. It's also a perfect stand-alone product when I don't need foundation but want some oil control. It does require a mid-day touch-up, but other than that it is flawless!
Even the lightest is too dark
I bought this to give my skin a break from the constant buffing/brush, but even the light/medium is way too dark for me. It also didn't seem to last long on my skin either. The regular mineral veil lasted all day; this was gone by lunch. Disappointed...
