It's an okay product after experiencing going outside with all of that shimmer on my face, I learned to simply use this as a base under my foundation. It really gives my foundation staying power because I have really oily skin. Without this the oils from my face would eat away my foundation. I say use this under your foundation if you don't want to go outside with illuminizing powder all over your face. This has glitter pigments in it so that's why I'm saying this. Overall it makes a great base; I only use this because it came in a kit that I got as a gift but I will not be purchasing this in the future.
This is the very first finishing powder I've ever tried. I got it in a kit with the rest of my Bare Minerals stuff. It really opened the doors for me. This stuff is really super silky and smells great. I love how it feels on my face! Very soft. I wouldn't say this is my absolute favorite product, but I wouldn't be sad if this was the only one I got to use for the rest of my life.
I got Mineral Veil in the starter kit that I had purchased. I would apply a little bit of this all over my face to set the Bare Mineral foundation and also prevent shine that I would get through out the day. Normally for my everyday makeup I don't use foundation all over my face, I find that's too much make up for me. I usually only use concealer and foundation around the blemish areas or certains areas where I needed to even out my skin tone. I use this to set my under eye concealer and on my t-zone (those are the areas that I'm most concerned about). The kit sized jar also doesn't come with a stopper so when storing this or travelling you have to make sure this is always upright or you will get spillage of product all over the lid and down the sides.
The formula is really light, and translucent in colour. The jar that the kit came with is smaller than the standard size, but since you do only need a little bit of it it does last you a long time. I find that if you use too much of this, your face gets too matte. This isn't the best product for setting your face. I find that throughout the day or if it's a really hot day out, I still find that my makeup slides around after I set it. Also when it comes to covering shine, this product doesn't work well enough. I still find the need to use blotting sheets when I wear this, and when you take flash photos you still have lots of shine on your face in the photos. Unless you have really dry skin, this product may work better for you, but there is also the worry that this product could matte you too much so your face ends up looking dry. The full size of this is about $30, I think that there are setting powders out there that can do a better job at the equal price.
Wonderful Setting Powder
This works great as a setting powder. Its the only thing I ever use to set my makeup. It goes on light as a feather and makes my skin glow! I won't even bother trying another setting powder because this one works perfect! The large size container is pricey but lasts a loooong time. You really get your money's worth. Try it, you'll like it!!!
Wouldn't want to live without it!
I love the entire line of Bare Escentuals, but I couldn't live without my Bare Minerals, including the Mineral Veil. I use this to set my makeup, and especially my under eyes, after I use concealer. Keeps everything in place all day long. You don't have to worry about touch ups, ever.
Great product.It doesn't give you that white powder face that some other setting powders give you.It really sets your foundation and gives you that complete flawless look.It keeps your face shine free and if you need to touch up during the day or night it doesn't cake up leaving you looking like you just applied yor makeup.
