My hair salon was doing makeovers with this product. She started to do the foundation and the concealer in this line...but eh. I dont use either ever. Blush, mascara, lippie for my everyday. I save real makeup for weekends. Anyhoo she said lets just try the mineral veil, I am a real freak about healthy skin so I was reluctant. But she assured me that it was not going to clog my pores. Long story but this is great on my combo skin, I mattes it out but does keep it glowy. I cannot complain and a little goes a LONG way if used correctly.

I really like the mineral veil because it prevents my face from getting shiny during the day. I do not use foundation for anything else on my face. Just mineral veil so I dont know if makeup will get blotchy. I usually apply mineral veil on my face before I head out the door in the morning after I cleanse and moisturize. I remember using this last summer and it kept my face fresh. That doesnt mean it wont get oily though. I usually feel my face getting hot and oily but when i look in the mirror, it's a flawless finish-no shine!! I dont know what is in the ingredients but i think it hides the shine well. I've been using this everyday for almost a year now and I still have a lot of product left. For 20 bucks, it definitely is a good buy.
I have combination skin and i dont get breakouts when using this. Just make sure you keep your brushes clean!

I love this stuff. This is the best! I use this on top of Stila's TM and it looks wonderful!
MINERAL VEIL IS AWESOME!

Marvellous stuff. I often use it on its own, on a No Makeup Day, just to even out my skin tone. My only (slight) criticism is that my nose still goes shiny, so it doesn't live up to its anti-grease propaganda.

I'm confused at why this amazing product has such a low rating! I use this over any foundation, liquid or powder... It really sets nicely and makes my skin looks like it's been airbrushed... my pores appear smaller and my skin looks matte...

I am bummed to see this product receiving a low rating! It's by no means a concealing miracle powder, but it does exactly what its name says - giving the face a glowing look. It looks matte but at the same time dewy = healthy looking skin. I have this in the original shade as well as the tinted. 95% of the products I use are Bare Minerals, so this product is the perfect finishing touch to my makeup application. Plus all BM products last FOREVER. Use this under or over makeup, or what I like to do is swirl it into my flawless face brush and throw it in my purse before a night out, really nails my touchups. Works well as an eyeshadow primer, too.

i love that this sets my makeup and doesnt give me a chalky matte look that most powders do, rather a nice sheer cover w/ a slightly iridescent glow.

I'm on my second Mineral Veil. It lasts such a long time and a little goes a long way. It's finely milled and gives such a nice soft-focus look. Mineral Veil also works wonders with softening blush. Best of all, it keeps oil at bay. I've used many loose and pressed translucent powders since I was a teenager. This is the best by far! For the $, it's worth it. Highly recommended!
Also, I use this over BE Foundation in Fairly Light. And it works well over Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Tint in light.

I'll probably buy again, but it certainly isn't the HG I've been looking for. It seems to accentuate my dry areas more, but it doesn't last, and I get oily and makeup gets patchy as the day goes on. It's difficult to touch up easily, too, without making a mess. I would also prefer a yellow tone color rather than the pink. I'll keep looking though, and if you have any better suggestions for combo skin, let me know. Oh, and I think it's way too expensive and doesn't last that long. I swear the last container I bought, too, was only half filled.
