A super basic corn starch based loose powder. It did well on cutting shine and controlling oil, but nothing special. It had a very fine texture and provided no coverage. If it were a larger container it would be worth the price, but for such a tiny container, it's just not worth it.

This a great loose, translucent powder with a cornstarch base, which helps absorb oil and control shine. I enjoy using this, but not the foundation. B.E. mineral foudations are the wrong color scheme for my skin (#2 is just TOO yellow for me) and for $35 a pop, I'm not not about to buy different colors to custom blend. The packaging of this powder is annoying & potentially messy (you can't just pop it into your purse for touchups - well, you could, but you'd need a separate mirror and brush). All in all I do like this product - it performs well. I use this at home & cover girl on the go.

Update: I have switched to Aromaleigh minerals, which works much better with my skin. Bare Escentuals is too shiny for me, caused breakouts, and didn't match/work with my skintone.
Old Review: I love this!!! I had been using the foundation for awhile and then I finally decided to give this a try. This powder works so beautifully with the foundation. It makes your skin look flawless! This powder just melts right into your skin; you can't even tell it's there. I just wish that it had a sifter on the top like the foundation!

This stuff is great. It lasts forever (unless you're clumsy like myself and spill most of it all over your bathroom) and is totally buildable without looking cakey. It leaves a lovely matte finish and a quick dusting whisks the oilies away. My only beef is the packaging. Can't BE come up with some sort of klutz proof container? Please?!!

umm..yuck? BE stuff just did not work for me. this was oh-so-obvious even with a tiny little bit. didn't control oil, looked gross. thumbs down. sorry..

I love this...I totally recommend it to anyone and everyone. It makes my pores look smaller. My only gripe is the money for the size. I ordered it through QVC and hoped that it would be bigger alas, it wasn't. Overall, love this! It is very messy and, unfortunately, I did have to retouch but not as much as I normally do.

While I am not that crazy about the mineral foundation, I absolutely adore the mineral veil!!! It is hands down the best powder that I have ever used. It is very finely milled and is translucent on the skin. I agree with the other reviews this stuff is a winner! I highly recommend!!! My only complaint is that it does not have a shaker top.

Absolutely PERFECT. I use this as a mattifier either by itself or underneath a bronzer.. and it keeps my tzone matte through the day! It's perfectly smooth, doesn't break me out, and feels wonderful on the skin. I will repurchase!

Wonderful! I dust it on before the mineral foundation and get a beautiful finish. Then dust over the top of all my makeup when done. Carry it with me during the day, and you can't tell how many "layers" go on...just whisper light! A++++

mineral veil is a translucent powder. it really makes the BE foundation look more natural and it also takes away shine. and the little jar comes with a ton, i won't run out for a while, but when i do, i'll definitely repurchase. love this!!
