Rated 2 out of 5 by bing Disappointing
I thought this product would deliver great results and last at least 8 hrs. Once you put it on, it will have its radiance effect, and your complexion will look lighter, even not needing a concealer to cover-up imperfections. But after 30 minutes of putting it on, it's gone, then imperfections and spots and dullness of your skin shows up again, then you need to reapply again and again and again...and sometimes you can't do that . I just wasted money on this product. I should probably try Mally Beauty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dcox83 Please Bring Back Medium, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
I love this powder. After years of searching this is truly the only powder that keeps my skin from being shiny, doesn't cause breakouts/irritate my skin and goes on smooth and flawlessly.
I have extremely sensitive skin and finding a powder w/o bismuth oxichloride is nearly impossible! This was it. And it's the only powder I've used for quite some time now! WHY WHY WHY would BE take away the shades from one of their most amazing products??? The translucent is way to pale and the dark is way to dark. You've basically taken out the shades for nearly all your customers and forced people to choose between two extreme ends of the spectrum!
Other reviews are stating the same thing so I hope BE will heed their loyal customer's advice and bring back the multiple shades. The lose powder veil is what I'm using now but it is not nearly as good.
This is such a great product and if either super pale or super dark works with your skin tone then go for it. It's perfect. The rest of us will just have to keep our fingers crossed!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer PLEASE Bring back MEDIUM!!!!!!
Amazing product but no longer in multiple shades! Translucent is too pale and Deep is too dark! Please please please bring back Medium shade!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by shastagirl Great Product
I love this product, but my color is no longer available. Now only offered, either too light or too dark.. The translucent is not translucent. It makes skin look ghostly. I don't understand no in between color. If you're able to wear one of these 2 colors, get this product because you won't be disappointed. BM PLEASE get the tinted color back!! Because a medium color isn't offered is why the 4 stars, otherwise it would be 5 stars.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beyoutiful Bring back medium
Please bring back the medium shade. It was the perfect shade, translucent looks ghostly and the bareskin veil isn't a good substitute. Why would you get rid of a perfectly good product? It makes no sense. My lower rating is only due to lack of color choice. I hope if enough people continue to ask you'll bring this product back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LaNaturalGirl Love this product
I love the way this product covers the imperfections in my skin. It is also great in concealing the bags that I sometimes get under my eyes. I do recommend this product for people that may have acne or other skin imperfections.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WorkInProgress Wouldn't Use Another Makeup
I have been using BareMinerals for about 2 years and will never use another makeup! The READY Touch Up Veil is one of my favorites and, unfortunately, cannot find my color: DARK, anywhere else but online so PLEASE do not discontinue this color. Thank you for making such an amazing product for darker-skinned (i.e., black) women. It's THE BEST.
Rated 3 out of 5 by pcorder Love it!! But because of the quality of it, it isn't a good investment.
I love the pressed powder feel of it. However, after only three uses, the cake crumbled. I didn't expect it to become useless so quickly. I won't be buying this product again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by alfi NEED THE SHADES BACK
I was using the light shade, which was perfect. The translucent is just too pale. Please please PLEASE bring back the other shades!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Bring back DARK!
Please bring back the Dark shade in this!! The Perfecting Veil is off-color and doesn't hold a candle to the Dark Touch Up Veil! I have been buying Dark at Sephora when I can find it to stock up at home. You've got to bring back these shades!
Rated 1 out of 5 by NatalieVW bring back the other shades!!!!
This powder is the reason I become a fan of Bare Minerals, and now my shade is gone! I look like a ghost with the translucent powder and will not be buying that. Please bring back the light and medium shades!! The newer powder is not as effective and does not contain SPF so I will not buy that either.
-From a disappointed BareMinerals customer
Rated 5 out of 5 by padilla0512 BRING BACK THE MEDIUM SHADE!!
I love this powder. I really hate the fact that the medium shade is no longer available. Translucent is NOT okay for every skin tone! Light is TOO light and deep is TOO dark. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the MEDIUM shade!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lin226 Where is the tan?
I have been using this product for quite a while. Loved it as I do with the product line. However, translucent is too ghostly/ pasty looking for my skin tone. The tan was just perfect. Please bring back the color! Looking at other products to take it's place. Why do you keep changing colors?
Rated 5 out of 5 by lorij Prefer Medium
I agree with the other comments. I like the medium veil and I use it in 4 set compact but am tired of buying it just for the medium veil. I also would prefer they put a lighter concealer in the compact set. Please offer the Medium in the Touch Up Veil!
Rated 5 out of 5 by okchic Love this, why no medium color???
I love this product. I like the translucent ok, but don't like looking a little ghostly. I love the medium in the small Secret Weapon kits, but don't want to keep buying those (I bought 2 already). I prefer the powder concealer, so don't want the cream concealers from those.. I can't imagine why they only have light and deep available in the colored veil. I am upset they don't have medium!!! I hope they please listen to all of us about this! Otherwise, this is a great powder. I use the Ready foundation and only carry this with me to work during the day and can touch up if needed, but rarely need to, if I use this over the foundation in the morning. It keeps me from getting oily and shiny as the day wears on and keeps a flawless finish all day. Give us our Medium back please!

This is the BEST mineral veil formula! Please BE bring it back in every color again!!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Yuman What happened to Tan color
I love the product, but am very upset they don't have tan available. Will be finding a substitute product.
Rated 3 out of 5 by judazim Mostly Wonderful
I've used and loved this product for a long time. It's especially good when used as the
'finishing touch' over Complexion Rescue moisturizer. But I have the same complaint as
several other reviewers: About half way through the compact, the powder breaks up into
little pieces -- very annoying and makes application difficult. My biggest complaint today
is that it's not available in medium color! I cannot wear any of the other colors, so I'll be
searching for a substitute brand.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Lalapalooza Breaks easily into chucky pieces
I love having a compact in my purse for powdering a shiny nose on occasion. However, within two weeks of purchase, the powder broke into pieces and fell out every time I opened the compact. Had to throw it away.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Works wonders over BB cream
This came in my surprise beauty box and it is one of my favorite products. I wasn't sure what to do with it originally, but as I was experimenting one day, I put it on top of my BB cream (unfortunately not a bare minerals BB cream) and it was like magic! It helps keep me from getting oily and make the BB cream last longer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Poopsie Velvet like magic!
I really appreciate this product more and more each time that I use it. For someone who can be lazy about applying make up, especially in very hot, humid weather, this is a wonderful powder/veil to use!!! I love the way that it makes my skin feel, when I touch my cheek with the back of my hand, and find it astounding that my skin feels so smooth!!! I highly recommend this product to any and everyone!
Excellent quality product. I will be upset if you ever stop making and selling it!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Maizenblue I really tried to use this powder but couldn't due to the odor.
I bought this powder at a Bare Minerals store. I really couldn't believe how terrible it smelled when I first used it, chemical odor and also some mildew, I think. I did not want to try to return it to the distant store, so I washed the puff several times. No decrease in the smell. Using a brush with the powder didn't help, the smell is in there too. Since the powder is applied to the nose, this is a pretty big problem. It is not often I throw new purchases away, but I can't use it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TiffMarie Takes away the oil!!
If you have skin thats oily or slightly greasy, this product will nip that in the bud. I have a compact I keep at work and dust a bit on in the afternoon to soak up the oil. It makes my skin look more matte and clear. If you are planning to go out after work and don't want to wash up and start your makeup over, just use this to clean things up and refresh. Highly recommend it!!! Keep one in your purse or work bag, too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ladyjane The best powder I ever had
I am so happy that I bought this product, since it does what it promise. At my age, my skin really need make up which is benefiting instead showing the not anymore youthful "texture". I am very skilled in choosing my product and know what I need. There are tons of powders on the market, but each of them have always something why I did not like it. Until now. This is the VEIL I was dreaming about. I would recommend it to all of you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jayda Love This
Thought I'd give this a try and bought it more for portability and ease of use when not at home. Wow, I should have gotten this sooner because the staying power on the ready products are the best. I live in Hawaii and the humidity can get bad, so the shine on my face always needs a touch up. Well, with the ready I notice less shine sooner and less touchup. Great, and I do notice this too on the ready foundation.
Rated 1 out of 5 by crabcake Get rid of those nasty puffs!
I had the same experience described in the review by Maggie Mae. Got a sample size (the "Ready Illuminating Touch-Up Veil") and could not believe how bad it smelled. Petrochemical type odor. I knew it was probably from the soft black plastic on the back of the puff. I discarded that immediately and left the compact sitting open on a windowsill. But more than a week later the scent was still in the product! No way I want my face to smell like that, to me or others! I scraped all the powder out, hoping to at least salvage the nice little silver compact for alternate use. Unfortunately, the odor still remains, though much less strong. It seems to be concentrated in the black plastic surrounding the silver product tray, so it would probably be best to get rid of that material, too. I would expect this kind of thing to slip by QC with drugstore junk, not Bare Minerals.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Essenya almost perfect
I really like the feel of this product. It produces a very nice polished effect, to complete the makeup application, also adding some protection to go with it. The only thing that I have had problems with is the compact powder coming loose, rather than staying compact and together as it should. This occurs after several applications have been made. At first, I thought it may be just a fluke. However, I've purchased several since and have the same issue. There is a point when the compact powder comes loose and separates, which means then, though you can still apply, it is not as smooth or easy to place on your skin, and it is messy when you open up the compact itself.
I continue to use because I like the way the mineral veil feels, and the comfort and ease when all is working properly. I may, however, go back to the original mineral veil, the non compact version, after this. Has any one else had this particular problem?
Rated 1 out of 5 by NaturalGirlOnaMission Very Disappointed w/ BareMinerals
I have fair/light golden sensitive skin. I thought of using BareMinerals because I had heard how great it was for sensitive skin. I love natural products so I thought I would give this particular powder a shot. The price seemed a bit excessive but I was willing to pay for good quality. As soon as I put this powder on my skin felt like it was burning. I literally had to wash it off right away so my skin would stop itching and burning. After giving this powder several different tries after the first horrible experience, I noticed that the heat made it worse... I tried to see if I could wear it but it seems impossible even if it is cool outside...
Also, regarding the color and how it matched my skin I thought this powder did a very poor job. I have worn cheaper powders before and they matched my skin tone much better than this one did. It was not necessarily that it looked fake or unmatched, but more that it gave my face sort of a "ghost/dead" look.
All in all, very disappointed. DO NOT buy this if you have SENSITIVE skin...it will literally make you wanna tear your skin off.
Rated 3 out of 5 by MaggieMae Love with disappointment...
I love this product, hate the way it smells! I got a "sample" size with an order (it was only .5 oz) and I'm not sure why - but as soon as I opened it, it smelled like some type of harsh chemical - hard to describe exactly. The smell has not diminished since I've had it either. However, I love, love, love how it goes on and refreshes without having to get my full mineral veil powder out. Anyone else have issues with the smell?
