bareSkin Perfecting Veil - null
Mini is too dark
I originally bought this in the full size light-medium, and I loved it. I signed up for the Flawless beauty club and the mini I was sent was WAY TOO DARK. I emailed and told them the color was wrong, and they sent me the same exact color, which is way, way too dark. I ended up buying another regular sized one, since I literally couldn't use the mini.
I am set to receive my next shipment soon, and hopefully they will have fixed the problem by then, or else I will have to cancel my membership and ask for a refund.
Obviously, this isn't just a problem with me, this is a problem with the product and Bare Escentuals should NOT be sending this product to customers.
I am very fair skinned and was surprised to see other reviews that said the club version of this is way too dark. I thought I might be an anomaly or the smaller-sized formula would have been corrected by now.
I'm curious to read reviews that say the full size is the perfect color, but the mini is way off. I like the feel and coverage of it, so if the mini were the right color, I'd love to buy again. Strange.
why the club kit Perfecting veil is so dark ? I ordered light to med and says that but is not that color. I been using mineral powders awhile...most who use this type product don't want a heavy look and don't use a heavy hand IMO and so that is not the issue here to me.
Feels so nice, just want it to me a match is all.
Bareskin Perfecting Veil
Disappointed...I got this with my BareMinerals Club and it is way too dark. I wear fairly light and this is certainly not a light/medium.
Easy to Use
I am Golden Medium and was recommended to get the lighter color. This is nice to use if you want a fast Mineral Veil as opposed to the Original. It comes with a puff which is useless. Doesn't seem to apply well with the puff, so use a brush if you have one on hand. So far, it works similar to the Original Mineral Veil.
I have a full-size Perfecting Veil in Light to Medium and it is the perfect shade for my light skin. However, the mini-Perfecting Veil's I got in my club kits, though marked as Light to Medium are very dark. I cannot use the minis because of this. Not happy!
I love this powder! I use it with complexion rescue and occasionally with the original powder foundation. I am very fair, I use opal in cr and fair original powder, and the lighter of the shades works great. I agree that the puff is pointless. I used it once with the full coverage brush but it put it on a bit heavy for me. The handy buki brush is nice. This is a great alternative to mineral veil with all the same benefits and great finish.
Just what I needed
I bought this powder because the site describes it as providing light to medium coverage. I needed something to touch up my makeup on my nose, because I have allergies and have to blow it a lot. It looks really weird to have perfect makeup with a red nose! I tried another brand of powder, and it provided very little coverage. It was fine for taking away shine, but that was all.
This powder provides enough coverage to hide my red nose. In a way, it serves two purposes: to mattify and to cover. I also brush it on my face to set my makeup in the morning.
If you only want a mattifying powder and don't want any coverage, try another BM powder. If you do want some coverage, though, this is ideal.
Perfect Perfecting Veil
Love the Bearskin Perfecting Veil, have always had oily skin, have never liked to wear makeup... I recently started working in sales and have to wear makeup daily, I use Bare Essentials foundation, I finish off my makeup application with the Perfecting Veil, I rarely have to retouch, it covers, stays put and is almost invisible. My ONLY complaint is that I CANNOT find the TAN TO DARK coverage ANYWHERE!! Been to six stores and two of the three times in the last three months.... NON of the EVER have the TAN TO DARK... all have the light to medium but NEVER seem to have the TAN to DARK.... I just ordered from online ... hoping I don't get a "back order" notice!!!
perfect for Complexion Rescue and Bare Skin
first of all, i HATED mineral veil. it made my skin itch & felt very heavy, so i'd never use it and i'd end up having to touch up my foundation throughout the day.
i bought this with complexion rescue b/c other reviews said it had a very dewy finish, which it does. this is perfect for the CR and the bare skin foundation when you don't want so much shine. it mattifies and makes my skin look airbrushed, and keeps the oil at bay. and seriously, it lasts all day! i might have to touch it up once, if even. no itching, and feels so light, unlike the mineral veil.
i wear fairly light in the original foundation, vanilla in the CR, and Bare Shell in Bare Skin, so i got the light/medium. it doesn't change the color of my makeup, it just looks perfect.
the only thing i don't like is the stupid little pad that comes with it. when i apply it in the morning, i just use one of my other brushes. i also have one of the foundation compacts, so i just switch out the pad for the brush that came with the compact. this stuff can be messy, but that's not a deal breaker for me. keep the plastic cover over the veil-helps keep the mirror clean.
