i have a love hate with this product. i used to use it after my make up as the finishing deal, but i don't like how the powder gets all over the place and to be honest i didn't notice that big of a difference like most people say. it was just another powder on my already powedered face. what i do love about it though is i blot it on my lips before i put on my lipstick and it stays in place.

This is ok. I bought it and never really used it cause it made me look pale and pink. I know it says that it is translucent, but not on me! I prefer EM's Tinted Silk Dust or Finishing Dust!

Really wonderful product. The perfect finishing touch, and when im lazy and dont feel like applying foundation i just dust some of it onto my face and im good to go! After a few hours I start to get shiny though and I'm a boy so I cant just pull out my compact and start applying more so i just deal.

MY HG of finishing powder. I wisk it over my MAC foundation with a huge fluffy brush and it gives me that soft finished look. I'm not looking for color or sparkle of any kind so it does the trick! Will continue to buy!

It gives a nice finish to your makeup and does keep the oilies a bit more at bay, but it contains Parabens unlike the foundation. I just don't think it does a good enough job to justify the price tag. It's not miraculous and you wind up going through this a heck of a lot quicker than the foundation.

I love Mineral Veil. I use it under and over my foundation. I am very oily and although I don't have complete control over my oil, this really has improved how quickly I'll have oil breakthrough with my foundation.

Ever since I switched to Bare Escentuals, I've only been getting compliments so something must be working. I like all of the versions (feather light and tinted).

Not the most expensive and it is an incredible value. Not a lot of product is needed.

Packaging has a bit to be desired, it can be very messy when you first start using the product until you get the hang of it. Maybe someday it'll have better delivery.

This was part of my first experience with mineral makeup. Now that I have a lot of experience with other brands, I find MV to be too drying and flattening for my neutral skin.

This is my HG. I use it over my BE medium/beige foundation and what a difference it makes. I glow and people tell me so! Love it!

I love this. I have never used foundation or powder before and thought I wouldn't need either. But I started off with buying MAC Select Sheer powder just for setting my concealer under my eyes and eventually decided to try this. I received one as a ROAK from a wonderful swapper and I was immediately hooked. I don't know how I lived without this! I love the way my skin feels when I wear it and in hot and humid Florida it keeps my face matte and dry. Great stuff.
