I really like the veil...lol....it does help u "set" ur eyeliner and eyeshadow.....BEWARE less is more!!! u can easily achive the
chalky dusty look if u apply to much.
I bought Mineral Veil solely to kill the shine on my face in the summertime when it is hot and humid. It does the trick but you have to be very sparing or you get a chalky look.
I really don't know if it is better or worse than most powders as I haven't bought any except this in about 20 years!
Let me start off by saying I only use this on my eyes, not on the rest of my face. I could never wear eyeliner because my eyes are very deepset and my eyelids are oily. One day I tried putting the mineral veil over my eyeliner and it is a miracle! My eyeliner stays in place the whole day! I am addicted to the mineral veil, I wear it every time I wear eyeliner. I think Bare Excentuals should def. market this as an eyeliner setting powder as well.
I hated this product and brought it back to Macy's in a hurry. It was chalky, dry, and made my face look bright white in pictures. Not to mention it is very messy and doesn't travel well. I'd avoid this at all costs.
i love the bare essential products for foundation and blush! my skin is super sensitive / freckled; rosacea and acne proned; uneven textured. basically, i have lousey skin and i hate wearing make-up. however, this is the only product that has not made me break out! it covers all of my imperfections beautifully without making me feel or look like i'm wearing make-up. the mineral veil is great as a light cover up alone in the summer over a tan, to even out my color and end the shine. i LOVE this product!!!!!
This is cakey, chalky and makes me look like a ghost!! I do not recommend this product at all
Every time I use my Bare Essentials products, I use this as the final step. I use the regular, non tinted formula, so you can't even see it. I feel like it does help though, and I plan on using it over my BE products. I am not sure if this is necessary, but I'd like to think it helps with the staying power of the other products. I will continue to use. I recommend you use this over your other powder BE products.
I use the luminating one and although my skin is oily, this does not make my skin look greasy. It has a nice sheen to it and it works well in keeping the oilies at bay. I am not much fond of using loose powder but it is worth to have this on. Great product.
subpar. I stupidly used this for years. It gives a decent finish, but does not control the oilies. Youngblood rice setting powder is far superior. It's chalky and you waste so much of the product with each use with its messy container. never again! It doesn't really do much, its just there, and within a couple of hours your oilies will be as well. nice concept, but no thanks.
This is a great finishing powder. I use it after my bare minerals to set it and it makes it look great, think it would work great with a liquid foundation 2, if not better. I also use this for half way through the day when my face is starting to get a bit oily. I apply this and it soaks up the excess oil really well, I then quickly top up my foundation where needed,usually my nose, and then go back over it again with another layer to help keep it in place. Would buy again but to be honest, cant see myself running out any time soon.
