Mineral Veil - null
Thank you for making a tinted mineral veil.
I am a Warm Deep Matte and this disappears into my skin , just wonderful !
I absolutely love the mineral veil. It goes on so easy and lots of times I will just use it alone with no other foundation. It covers beautifully and gives a fantastic tint to my skin.
My favorite setting powder
I use this in both Original (translucent) and Illumininating. It is a Holy Grail product for me. I use Original more, as it gives a flawless, matte finish that works with any makeup look. The Illuminating is beautiful, with a fine sparkle that is noticeable, but doesn't make you look like a shimmery disco ball. I like it in summer, or around the holidays.
Most of my life I've had super-oily skin, and this combined with the Original Foundation was a godsend, especially in the days before primers. I've been using this for nearly two decades. I had given up on my foundation lasting till I tried this. Powders would always cake or melt off with my foundations. I can use this with any foundation, and it sets it.
When my skin is really oily, or it's really hot outside, I put this over AND under the Original Foundation. My makeup stays on, and stays flawless all day. My skin stays shine-free. The layers needed are light, so I still don't feel like I'm wearing anything on my face. Dusting it on the eyelids before using shadows helps prevent them from creasing (I did this before eyeshadow primers were available).
I love the translucent mineral veil! It provides the perfect finish to seal in my foundation and make it last longer on my oily skin. I suggest using it before you apply your blush, bronzer, and/or highlight so that it doesn't cover up what you did!
Great product for smooth finish and looks great in pictures!
not for me
I bought this in the store i was excited to replace my normal moral veil and i thought i could use it as a highlighter as well.
It is very lightweight which did not work to be a highlighter.
The only reason I don't like it is that in the sun its too glittery for me. Others say its barely there but i just don't like the look of it for everyday.
I am keeping it for nights out because it does do what its supposed to do give you a sheer clean finish.
Couldn't be better for aging skin
absolutely wonderful product...will not use anything else
I use the Mineral Veil over Complexion Rescue and like how light it is. I have freckles that I don't want to cover and the Mineral Veil seals in my makeup without being thick or covering my freckles. I feel like you do need a spray sealer over this, though, because if I hug my dog, sometimes I get splotchy patches from where my face touched her fur.
Mineral Veil - Hydrating?! It seems to have disappeared.
I know that I am in the minority, considerably, with this review, but Mineral Veil just did not do (for me, anyway) what it is touted to do. I was very disappointed with the lack-luster results after giving it a decent amount of time to work its charms, and, sadly, it did not. It left my skin parched and patchy with too much of a “disco ball” effect, believe it or not, and that was after applying the veil to clean, exfoliated, healthy, smooth and hydrated skin using a very light application with tapping, careful blending and buffing using the recommended brush and / or tool(s). I know of course that Mineral Veil is an award-winning product and considered the holy grail, a miracle in a jar (or container, in this case) so to speak, but that was not my experience, which is fine, as you find out these things through trial and error. I returned the product with no regrets for having given it a shot.
Great Hydrating Mineral Veil but there's a issue.
I just received my order today for my Hydrating Mineral Veil which I normally get. I was more then half way out of my old one so I decided to order a new one. Well, to my disappointment, the sealed container was half way or a little less then half way full. Almost looked the same as my old container that I have been using for a while. Very odd. Is it a manufacture mistake where they don't fill the container all the way? Usually they are full...
Product itself is great. Love the Hydrating Mineral Veil but I won't be purchasing anymore if this is now what I get for 20.00 + dollars...
Perfect finishing touch. I wear the original mineral veil
tinted mineral veil
I love regular mineral veil and have used it for years. Thought I would try the tinted. I don't like it at all. It's very orange. I look like an Oompa Loompa.
One of my favorite bare mineral products
Live this, it really finishes my makeup routine. Have used this for many years. I rarely have to touch up, unless I'm going out in the evening. The longer it's on my skin the better it looks, wouldn't be without the tinted mineral veil.
illuminating mineral veil has that special glow
I like the "illuminating" because it gives you that little bit of sparkle. It's not like you dusted glitter all over your face or anything, not that at all, it's just that little extra special "glow". It brightens up your face whereas the regular mineral veil does not.
On the fence
I am a little on the fence about this. The texture is the same like original mineral veil. I thought I may be able to use it without the foundation if I didn't want to put on the whole system. The pigment is not quite right for me without the foundation. I am not sure it really adds anything to the foundation powder by having a pigment.
I think the original may be more luminous.
Product is great, packaging is not
I love the powder - pretty much hate the container. I so hope they address two issues with this product: the size is WAY TOO SMALL for everyday use -- it is a waste of plastic when you have to keep reordering. Not good for a company supposedly concerned about overall health and being conscious about the environment. There's a disconnect here. Secondly, it is very hard to operate the "filter level" with the tiny holes to get the product. It takes so long to get to the powder, especially toward the end when there's not much left. But you get so little of the powder originally, I feel like I want to use all of it. Please redesign this product packaging! And please make available the 28g size, which I got in some "special offer" and could not get again. So frustrating on many levels. But as I said, I love the product and how it is actually healthy makeup. That is the reason I am committed to this product and the other loose powders.
Great, but not a good touch up powder...
I absolutely love this product to finish any make up look and adds the most healthy glow while keeping things matte. However, it tends to look a bit cakey if I use it to touch up throughout the day. A great product!
I love this product as it helps my makeup stay put and doesn't allow me to get shiny.
I love Hydrating Mineral Veil
This product makes my skin feel much more hydrated this winter with the cold temps and harsh winds. It also gives my skin a glow.
Great product that can be used to set your serum or to set your whole look when finished without being too heavy
Looking Flawless is wonderful!
In the past I have tried lots of makeup--Now I'm all for Bare Minerals makeup and especially the Mineral Veil as a finisher. In a second of application I have a beautiful makeup that makes me look like I have NO PORES, no spots--nothing! I love this product; love, love, love it!! Best part of all, no one believes it when I tell them my age.
A Staple in my Morning Make-up Routine
I have been using a Mineral Veil since I started using Bare Minerals foundation in the late 90's. I switched last year to the Hydrating Mineral Veil & I love it. It offers the same finishing touch to my make-up that I have been used to ~ but the tint & hydration offered in this product just makes it that much better. Would definitely recommend using this!
Just love this. It is a great way to set your makeup and looks great without being heavy.
Mineral Veil does exactly what the description says it does.
Love this product. Do not feel my makeup is complete without it.
Not hydrating and weird coloring
So overall the product sets makeup very well. Especially for dry and dehydrated skin. It does NOT however actually hydrate your skin. It sits well on the skin but the part that I hate more than anything, is the purple tint it has. I guess its suppose to help with complexion but if you accidentally put too much on the brush, you have a purple tinted face in certain lightings.... I contacted BE and they sent me a new one, but they were the same products... I don't recommend...
Only powder to actually set my under eye concealer
I have been searching for god knows how long to find a powder that will set my under eye concealer so it doesnt crease like crazy but wont give me a weird white filmy finish under my eyes. A friend got me a sample size of this for christmas and i absolutely fell in love! Its so lightweight but still sets my concealer perfectly and if i put it over my whole face it gives me skin an amazing finish.
Light as a feather
This is by far the lightest finishing powders I've ever tried. It goes on smoothly and blends in very well.
Illuminating mineral veil is perfect never shinny just a stroke of light, I don't wear it all over my face I just place it where the light would hit your skin, but perfect for the body shoulders, legs, decollete
I use the brightening veil after I put on my foundation, and it really finishes the look. It makes my skin look natural and healthy. I have very sensitive and prone to breakouts skin, and this product does not irritate my face. None of bare essentials products bother my skin actually, which is why I love this stuff! The only thing I can say bad is that the glitter in the brightening option can make your skin appear shinny after a while of wear.
I LOVE this brand!
I have been using the light Mineral Veil since it first came out on TV. People tell me all the time what a beautiful complexion I have! It's so light on my skin and yet it gives me a beautiful finish. I love it. I will never use another brand of make-up!
