Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Too dark
I love the idea of this product. The light shade is way to dark and unusable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by amber1035 Just what I was looking for!
I recently went into a store looking for something that would stop my makeup from creasing into my few lines around my eyes and forehead and it this item was suggested for me and I couldn't be happier! I purchased the smaller compact that came with a mini brush in medium shade which is perfect for me. This stuff last my whole 12 hour shift, I didn't buy it necessarily for my oily skin (I take medication and sadly a side effect is super oily skin ugh) but wow this stuff is perfect for that too! The only down side is the mini brush that came with it. It doesn't pick up enough powder, so I like to use bigger softer brush and now I'm getting the right amount of product. I'm going to go back and buy the full size product asap.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Light to Medium
I just received the Light to Medium shade in the Getting Started kit (I just joined the shipment club). It is incredibly dark for my light skin! It is actually a tad bit darker than the bronzer I sometimes wear. It's such a shame because I usually love BM's finishing powders.
Rated 2 out of 5 by wifeblythe Great coverage, but too dark
I love finishing with this product, but it is only the correct shade for me right now when my summer tan is at it's peak. Come fall, winter, and spring it will be WAY too dark, and I have the light-to-medium shade.
PLEASE make a lighter shade so I can have year-round use of this product! That would make it 5-star worthy for me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by VivianJenn Love this Perfecting Veil!
I really love this product. Makes my skin look super soft and silky. I always get compliments on my skin. I re-apply this product throughout the day if I get too oily. The only thing I would recommend is going a little darker in the color. I use to use the the light one and now I use the medium one. The "flash back effect" in pictures from the switch has gone down too. Also, the medium is very translucent as well so it doesn't give off too much color.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RN16 Disappointed
Normally love bareminerals but not this one. This product is not for light skin. I received this in "light to medium" several months ago and could not believe how dark it was. At first I thought I ordered the wrong shade then flipped it over to see it said "light to medium." I hoped I would get my money's worth this summer when I had a tan...even now with a good tan it is still too dark. I wear "the skinny dip" bronzer I would say it is the equivalent to that shade if not darker.
Rated 4 out of 5 by amers Perfecting Veil
I like using this product to "finish" my make up over the liquid foundation. The only "con" I have experienced is that the compact breaks after only a few usages. I am using my second one and the same thing has happened : the hinge breaks making it difficult to put all back together with the magnet in the hole, etc. Also the applicator makes it difficult to get all the make-up out. I end up with product around the edges that I can't get out because it flakes and crumbles around the edges. I think a different package would make this better. I love the product itself!
Rated 4 out of 5 by dakota1gal Great finish and wear; runs out quickly
This runs out much more quickly than the loose powder, however, the finish effect is superb. I still use the mineral veil on top of this compact powder because of my excessively oil skin. I was surprised at how much lighter this powder plus the liquid makeup feels. Very difficult, if not impossible, to use all of the product in the compact - unlike the loose powder where I can use every drop.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LeeLee2 Irritating for Sensitive Skin
I really wanted this to be my forever finishing powder but it irritated and inflamed my nearly flawless sensitive skin. After trying it for a week I fell in love and stocked up, buying extra so I would not run out. BIG MISTAKE. By week two, I had one or two small white heads and inflamed pores and just figured it was a fluke. By week four, I had 4-6 white heads in different areas of my face, easily hidden with makeup. By week six my entire forehead was irritated inflamed and itchy. Forgetting what had changed in my routine, I traced back what changed and realized it was this powder. I then spent a week researching each ingredient. Silica is the first ingredient, which is known to clog pores, so I STOPPED this immediately and my face cleared up in a couple of days. Bummed that I wasted money as I still have unopened containers of this stuff, but glad that i figured it out before it ruined my skin for good!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Oohgirl Used to love but not anymore
I'm not sure what happened but this product formulation has to been changed. Now when applied over your foundation it's awfully dark. Moved away from it now. Shame because I used to love your products. So sorry.
