Mineral Veil - null
product okay but packaging needs work
i have had a lot of difficulty getting the right amount of this product to come out of the holes. mostly too much comes out and then the container is filled with it and i have to pour it back. then when i limit it to just one hole not enough comes out and i shake it and end up with too much again. so something needs to be adjusted. maybe the hole sizes should be smaller since the powder is so fine. when you use too much it looks ghostly on you and a little too shimmery. so getting the amount right is essential. otherwise i like it okay. it does minimize pores somewhat. and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin like any other kind of skin makeup from anywhere else does.
I've been using Bare Escentuals for 7 years - Mineral Veil is always the final touch. I also use it as a touch up late in the day.
Love this Powder!
I first tried Bare Escentuals/bareMinerals foundation in their lightest color in 2007. I loved it and still do. I also purchased the Mineral Veil. It is a great powder finish. I use it on any brand of foundation I might use and it looks great.
I still prefer bareMinerals foundation as my main go-to foundation. My skin has gotten a bit dry over the past couple of years. I had oily skin as a teen and in my 20s. 30s & 40s I had T-Zone skin. In my 50s normal skin (yea!). Then once I first entered my 60s my skin became more dry. So the next time I purchase Mineral Veil I'll purchase the hydrating type.
I am young with acne and some powders or foundations will cause even more acne with BE I don't have to worry about it . I was using the clinque powder ,it darkened my skin and didn't cover well, I switched to mineral veil and am so happy with the results!My skin feels amazing when it's on and when I take it off. I used to believe you didn;t need powder well boy I was wrong it makes so much of a difference. Thanks BE!
Never Leave Home Without It
This has got to be the best powder I have ever used! I really love this stuff, I never ever leave home without my Mineral Veil. Gives you the best visable pore reduction of any other product i`ve found yet plus such a beautiful glow. I just ordered the pressed powder compact so i dont make such a mess in my purse...cant wait.
Been using MV over 10 years
I use MV over bare skin (with a little concealer) and get complements every time on my 'poreless' complexion and glow. Also Pure Radiance as blush.
i love this, it does totally give you that flawless put together look, it completes the whole look...
I finish my look every day with Mineral Veil. It gives my face an absolutely flawless, fresh, gorgeous look! I highly recommend this product to everyone.
Love Mineral Veil- Completes My Face!
I love mineral veil. It goes on smooth, and gives my face a cool feeling. Very nice product. Never leave home without it.
Love this! I have always had a problem with shine, but a base layer of mineral veil completely takes care of it! Also love the soft finish it gives to my look.
When I wear the mineral veil, I am constantly complimented on my complexion. In pictures my skin looks air brushed-like a model or actress. I feel so beautiful!
very good for face
never better when it comes to make-up. i love it.
I cannot live without it!
Mineral Veil is a must have. It absorbs oil and gives you that air-brushed look.
I really enjoy all of the BE products, however, I do not like the locking lid because I found (with all the products with the locking lids) that powder would get stuck inside the locking twist and prevent me from opening it. I ended up buying a whole new set without the locking lids without even using all of the original set because the lids would no longer open. Other then the lid, the product was good.
Feels good, but...
This products feels great on my skin (like all BE products) and I have found that it makes my pores look smaller. But, my main problem is shine, and it does nothing against it. I can use blotting sheets and then put more mineral veil on, it works as a great refresher, but it doesn't really prevent the oil from appearing.
This product rocks, it makes your pores actually look smaller. I gives your face a finished, polished look. My brothers even notice the difference!!
This is lightweight enough for my sensitive skin. It makes my skin feel noticeably softer, immediately after application. If I'm running late, I know i can throw on the mineral veil and still look fabulous.
Love it. I do wish I had gotten the SPF 25 in my starter kit, though. Oh! And it would be AWESOME to have an SPF + hydrating mineral veil. I'd buy that for sure.
the mineral veil is really good, its give maximum coverage that does'nt look cakey at all,
as it still manages to give me the natural look, the powder feels light on my skin... this is the first time that i purchase bare minerals and i think it is worth buying.... XD
mineral Veil is my most favorite face makeup item!
I LOVE this stuff! If I don't feel like putting on a whole "face", I just use this and it looks like I DID put on a whole face! Not only that I am sure that it improves the texture of ones' skin
I love this product. It keeps my make up looking fresh all day without smudging and residue on my clothing like other face products can. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
I LOVE the Mineral Veil. I brush it all over my face to "finish" my makeup. I even brush some across my eyelids to "set" my eyeshadow. It works! Love the flawless look!
I love this product! it makes the shinyness on my face go down condiderably, even though you can't really tell im weraing anything(enless you look really close). I like this product, then again i have nothing to compare it to so yeah.
Does everything it claims
It is fairy dust in a jar! Wipes out enlarged pores,soaks up oil, blurs fine lines . All this without a hint of cakey, crepeiness, Even with frequent use. Its an instant freshen up
Beautiful finish, but oxidizes!
For reference, I have fair skin with yellow undertones and oily skin. The finish of the product is beautiful, controls oil very well, and does indeed help to give you that perfect airbrushed look. The only problem I have with it is it alters the color of my foundation. It, for some weird reason turns it darker. I wish it was the exact same thing only white. This veil has a slight, slight tint to it. And whatever is in it turns my foundation underneath darker. Almost a weird, off putting orangish greyish color. It's unfortunate because everything else about the veil is fantastic.
I love the new shaker package
Since I travel quite a bit, way too much powder shakes before I had the feature of locking the shaker. The last time I called in and changed my order (very friendly customer service by the way) the gal gave me a tip about getting the last little bit out of the locking shaker. If you turn it over the bottom comes off. You can use a coin and give it a twist or use your tweezers-mine are usually handy and it comes right off so I can get another day or two's use out of the package. Love it!
A perfect ending to applying the perfect make-up!
Awesome finishing pwoder
I had been wanting to try a finishing powder for a while, and I was trying to choose between this and Make Up For Ever. But I wanted to try BE Foundation and so I bought the Get Started kit with this in.
I'm so glad I did. It adds the perfect soft-focus finishing touch to my daily makeup. It makes my face look so soft and smooth, with not a pore in sight. I'm a brown-skinned black girl and I got the original Mineral Veil, so it truly does work on all skin tones - it doesn't make me look ashy at all. (I was originally skeptical and was gonna get the tinted one, but it's not necessary.)
I don't know which Sephora the first reviewer went to, but I got my set at Sephora and they do indeed carry the spill-proof Mineral Veil.
They should call it MIRACLE Veil!
If you're trying BE for the first time DO NOT leave MV off your order! If already a BE lover, get ready to fall in love all over again. My first try with BE - I had no idea what I was doing. Ordered the wrong color foundation, colors in the set I got were nice but a tad warm for me. Was used to conventional foundation so probably not swirling and tapping and buffing just right! Still looked okay though. THEN the last step! A layer of Mineral Veil and VOILA! Truly amazing to see what that one product could do! Pulled it all together! I've since found the right foundation and have become more skilled at applying and choosing products. My fave MV is original but I love layering Illuminating MV over. I actually converted a friend with that one product. She now loves the Tinted Illuminating MV so I guess I have to try that. ;) BE is the best and keeps getting better!
I'm in love with Mineral Veil! I use it after I apply my Oil Control Primer & after I apply my Matte Foundation. Before I use my eyeliner I dab a little Mineral Veil on my fingertip & apply it to my lower lashline -- it eliminates that morning "oil eye shine" & helps the eyeliner glide on even smoother. I sometimes enjoy using it as an eyecolor after I use my eyelid primer. As an eyecolor it's a pale, soft white hue. It's very pretty with any eyeliner & I love using Mineral Veil as an eyecolor if I go with a bold lipcolor that day.
New packaging is not friendly
The new shaker tops frustrate me. It leaves at least a week's worth of makeup in the package to be thrown out, and prevents me from transferring adequate amounts to smaller packages for travel. The shaker top would be greatly improved if it were readily removable for easy access to all of the product. I like mineral makeup ,but will be changing brands to obtain ease of use.
