Mineral Veil - null 4.6 5 199 199
Makes My Skin Look Silky Smooth! This is the best loose setting powder I have ever used. I use this to set my BM foundation, and then use the pressed mineral veil "Ready Veil" in translucent for touch-ups throughout the day (I have very oily skin). This controls oil SO well, and offers a poreless, matte, airbrushed look (no easy task for oily skin like mine).The tinted veil works for me in the summer when I'm tan, but if you're lighter than medium skintone, it may be too dark for you. I have repurchased, several times. Make's skin look so smooth and beautiful! 06/11/2012
I have used Mineral Veil for years & won't use anything else. It goes on so smooth and it is just the perfect finishing touch to my make-up. Before I tried Bare Essentials I had problems with my skin being dry or broken out, but not since I have been using Bare Essential products. I LOVE BARE ESSENTIALS. 06/10/2012
Amazing I used bareMinerals years ago.. stopped then recently I've come back to it. There is NO getting around it, bareMinerals is one of the best make ups around. It lasts forever and it covers up so naturally. I love it and just purchased a compact for cheek colors. Love that too.. great to throw in your purse. Anyway, I'm back.. I've learned!!!! 06/08/2012
I just look better Since I switched to Bare Mineral makeup - I just look better. Thank you for these products 06/03/2012
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. 06/03/2012
Mineral Veil 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. 05/31/2012
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. 04/24/2012
AWESOME! 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! 03/25/2012
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. 03/21/2012
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. 03/20/2012
amazingly simply i love this, it does totally give you that flawless put together look, it completes the whole look... 02/18/2012
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. 02/15/2012
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. 01/22/2012
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. 01/19/2012
picture perfect 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! 01/09/2012
very good for face never better when it comes to make-up. i love it. 01/09/2012
I cannot live without it! Mineral Veil is a must have. It absorbs oil and gives you that air-brushed look. 01/08/2012
Good, But.... 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. 01/07/2012
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. 01/02/2012
Awesome! This product rocks, it makes your pores actually look smaller. I gives your face a finished, polished look. My brothers even notice the difference!! 12/30/2011
Love 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. 12/25/2011
great texture 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 12/05/2011
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 11/24/2011
Flawless Finish 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. 11/14/2011
Perfect Finish! 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! 09/25/2011
loving it 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. 09/19/2011
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 09/16/2011
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. 08/28/2011
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! 08/12/2011
Perfect! A perfect ending to applying the perfect make-up! 08/03/2011
