Love this mineral veil, gives an almost dewy glow, it's slightly shimmery and wonderful to use as an all over setting powder (sparingly) and as a highlight. Keeps my foundation in place, finishes off my look and refines the look of my skin. A must have! If you don't want a slight shimmer, then go for the original.
The price tag is fairly high (negative, hence 4 stars), however, you need a tiny, tiny amount... It lasts for a fairly long time.
I really like this stuff. This was actually my first BE purchase. I really like a slightly dewy look and I was looking for a good finishing powder to my foundation and this is just that. It gives you a nice glow, but does not make you look like a disco ball. I love it! It really helps keep my liquid foundation in place as well.
The only thing I don't like is the price tag. It doesn't seem like it lasts long either, but I will re-purchase.
I have been a BE user for years. I have had the regular Mineral Veil and used it just because it was the final step in my make up routine. But I never felt like it was anything very special. So I stopped using Mineral Veil for several years and then on a whim the other day at Ulta, I picked up a jar of THIS STUFF. Let me tell you, it is awesome. Way better than the plain MV, no giant glitter, moisturizer or color here, just pure magic! It makes me glow, not a "just worked out and sweating like a pig" type of glow, but a "healthy from within" glow!! I apply it like regular Mineral Veil, after applying my moisturizer, primer and BE foundation. It also works great as a highlighter on my browbone. Illuminating is right! I use it with the Echo Tools Bamboo Finishing Kabuki brush which deposits just the right amount of product on my face. Great product, might just repurchase so I never have to be without it.
