Mineral Veil - null
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.
This product is great. I have oily skin and it helps out a lot to maintain that oily shine through the day. I put a tiny layer on after I put on my all over face and then if I need a touch up I can brush some more later. You don't get that thick caked on feeling as you do with normal pressed powder.
you can't tell a difference if you have it on or if you don't . But without it my face doesnt feel as smooth but it still looks the same reguardless if i wear the product or if i dont wear it .
I LOVE Mineral Veil but DO NOT love the new packaging. I find that there is a LOT of product that I am unable to get of the the container when the product is running out. WIth the old packaging, I was able to "pop off" the sifter and get out what was left. With the new packaging, I feel like the product is trapped and I have no way to get it out of there. I love this product but am thinking about looking elsewhere due to the waste. I vote for the old packaging.
I love the mineral veil! I use it even if I am not wearing my foundation for the day just because it helps control oil and gives me a perfect matte finish. I purchased it at the BE store and recieved it with the no-spill packaging and am SO glad I bought it that way. Since it is such a feathery product the powder sometimes spills if I'm not careful. I am so very greatful for the no-spill container you have NO idea!
More money - Less product
I've been a customer for many years and have not used any other type of powder during those years....sorry to say, but I will not pay the price for "barely" two tablespoons full of powder.
I do love the new packaging where you control the amount of product that is available for use....but geeeeeeeeeeez....if I'm lucky this will last me about a month whereas the old one lasted many many months.
cant live without it!
i use it every day. it finishes off my makeup and makes my skin look flawless! i cant live without it! doesnt make me break out because its natural and doesnt make my skin look dry:)
A Perfect Face Powder!! :D
I LOVE LOVE Original Mineral Veil!! I have to admit that I do not use foundation, but I do need a little something to control oil and shine and this stuff is perfect! I have tried so MANY different powders, but this one is the softest and silkiest I have ever tried. I love that it does not change the color of my skin, but gives me a wonderful smooth finish. It hides my pores and controls oil all day. And the fact that it doesn't have any bad ingredients in it, that it is actually good for my skin, is an absolute plus! A wonderful face powder all around!!!
a beautiful finishing touch. some days i have oily skin and some days i don't. on the days that i do this absorbs most of the oil but whats left doesn't actually look like oil on my face but a light glow.
A Perfect Finishing Touch
When I was purchasing the basics, I was not sure how I felt about mineral veil, but after watching demonstrations of how everything worked together, I knew I had to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! Over the rest of my face basics: concealer, foundation, blush, and highlight, it adds a wonderful finishing touch. The mineral veil really does give everything else you've applied an "airbrushed" look, setting it all at the same time. I agree with other reviewers that it's not a necessity, but it does finish your look. Personally, my makeup feels unfinished without it.
I've just started using Bare Escentuals and I am in love with it, especially the mineral veil. I have very fair and flawless skin (I've had one pimple in my whole life!), but my 30 years are starting to show, and my complexion is getting a little uneven. This product makes my skin glow and it makes my skin look like it did when I was 20 - and it doesn't look like I'm wearing any makeup at all. I would recommend bareMinerals to absolutely anyone who wants to have luminous, young, flawless looking skin.
So great it can be worn alone!
I love the Mineral Veil! It's perfect for when you don't want or need to do the whole makeup routine - like if I'm just going to be running errands or lounging around with friends or family. It's so sheer, absorbs my oily t-zone and smooths out those mid-thirties "lines" . Just a swipe of mascara and some lip balm and I feel ready to face any casual situation.
very important step
I've been using BE for years now and this is a very important product for me. It really is invaluable for controlling oil and shine. I put this on first under my foundation and it controls shine all day (12+ hours). I normally don't use it as a finishing product, but I couldn't live with out it as a shine control base!
Can't belive this product...
Mineral Veil is so light you don't know you have it on, but it still gives great coverage. I have very pale skin, so I mix Mineral Veil and the lightest foundation as my base. There are days when I use only Mneral Veil.
The Best Translucent Powder Available!
I LOVE Mineral Veil! It does what any other loose translucent powder does, but it also really does give your skin an airbrushed finish. It sets your make-up incredibly well (I use it before and after make-up application). My favorite thing about Mineral Veil is that I only have to apply it ONCE a day, and need to make only one or two minor touch-ups occasionally. With other powders I've used over the years, I was constantly touching up shiny spots. Not so with Mineral Veil. This powder, Bare Minerals foundation, and Bisque multi-tasking concealer are three cosmetic products I will NEVER be without.
Absolutely love BE Mineral Veil! Gives you the perfect finish and leaves your skin flawless! Once the foundation and concealer is on just add this on top and you're ready to go! Gives your skin that younger look!
I love this product! The BE foundation is amazing, but the mineral veil is a must-have finishing product!!! It gives your face an airbrushed look of perfection and photographs beautifully!!! Also, on days that I don't feel like getting all dolled up, I like to put just a little mineral veil on to give me a nice glow and appear to be made-up :) This is an absolute MUST HAVE!
A Must Have!
I will not go without this product! I love all BE makeup, but this one is a must have for sure. It sets my makeup and lasts all day long. I love the airbrushed look. I have never had so many compliments on my skin.
This stuff is awesome. Something that I love to do is to put on my mineral veil before I put on my foundation. It gives me the feeling of a clean slate to work with. It's like working on a new canvas and then adding my art work to it. Then put the mineral veil on after you have put on your other makeup. Wow, gives me such a finished look!
This really does help set all the BE products on my face for a nice flawless finishing touch. It reduces shine and creates a glowing complexion and also blends in any concealer/foundation that you forgot to buff out.
I love the Mineral Veil by BE. It really helps to smooth out the look of the makeup and helps with the shine. I keep some in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. It works very well and looks natural and it feels so smooth and light on your skin. Great finishing product.
I love this product
This is my favorite BE product. It finishes off my make-up.
Original Mineral Veil
This is a great last step in my BE make-up routine. It sets everything in place and keeps it there all day! I went without mineral veil one day and realized halfway through the day that i needed to touch up my make-up. Never again will I skip this step! I also find that my skin stays oil free all day which is nice.
I use the Original Mineral all over my face before applying foundation (to help my makeup last longer) and then again after my foundation (before applying any blush or eye shadow) to set the foundation. It makes everything blend so smoothly and really does give the face a soft, air-brushed look. I can't live without it!
Great finishing touch
I love this. I never put on BE without it! It smooths everything out, puts a perfect soft glow to your make up, and is not heavy. I even put it on my other exposed skin (like upper chest and arms).
