This is my favorite of the Bare Minerals products. It gives you the perfect matte look and just makes your face look phenomenal. It's not drying, yet still matte. Don't worry about it looking natural to the point where it looks like your face didn't change. There's a change alright. It makes you look airbrushed...seriously, but at the same time, you don't look like you're wearing a mask! I love it so much. I'll never switch from Bare Minerals!!!

Well its not great. Considering how expensive it is i had hoped it would be a bit better, in all honesty the E.L.F Mineral Powder is better! After foundation i apply concealer to any blemishes and under my eyes, for some reason this powder just sticks to concealer and makes my face look patchy and blotchy, no other powder i own does this its freakin' annoying, I wouldnt buy it again will definately stick to my MSF!

I've been using BE products for over 5 years and I love using mineral veil over my bare minerals foundation. I can tap on a little halfway through the day to combat oil. If I'm having a great skin day I might pop on a little concealer, mascara and a touch of mineral veil to give my skin a bit of luminosity.
However, I do not like to use it with my liquid foundation, it gives off a chalky effect and since I am fair I don't need any additional help with that. ;)
(I use the original, I'm not a fan of the illuminating or tinted mineral veils as they contain bismuth which makes my skin itch.)
I'm sure I will rebuy this in the future but I would only reccomend it if you are using a mineral foundation as well.

To each his own. Personally, I detest Mineral Veil. It's like setting my foundation with sand. It's heavy, coarse, gritty, over-drying. Overall: awful.
And the mineral foundation is just as bad. Makes my face look like a walnut, which in spite of my age, is NOT. Shows every pore, every line, even the ones I don't yet have.
I love BE lip/eye prods and the blushes are not bad. But the mineral fdt. and the mineral veil are poison to me. They don't mattify my oily skin. They simply overdry it. Big difference.

This is my very favorite setting powder! Somehow this manages to lock in my makeup all day and I barely have to touch up. This stuff is seriously amazing! Plus it lasts forever - I'm still on the smaller sized one that I got in the get started kit over a year ago!

I liked how nice my skin looked (the first day) when I used this as a setting powder, but after that I got cystic acne! I threw it out. After about two weeks or so my skin cleared up. Then I found out from Beautypedia that this stuff contains cornstarch which basically feeds the acne causing bacteria on the skin. Ladies with acne prone skin beware!

didnt do anything for me! used it on top of the bare minerals matte foundation and it just looked chalky and about an hour later i was oily. did not help keep my skin matte nor did it really help the foundation last longer. useless imo

I don't care for the Mineral Veil, it just doesn't do much for me. My skin is oily and for me, this makes it even more oily very quickly! I really like BM matte foundation and use that daily, but for me the veil is a waste of money. It can look chalky/white also.

So far I am really liking this. This is my first BE purchase and it does a good job at controlling oil (which says a lot because I am VERY oily) and the finish is beautiful. I agree with the other reviewers that this can look very chalky if you don't use a light hand. Less is more with this.
EDIT: I took off one lippie because I'm finding this to be pretty average. Very mediocre. Not horrible but nothing to rave about. Being very oily, throughout the day, this doesn't control *that well* and slightly altered the color of my foundation. I'm definitely going to stick with completely translucent powders. Still on the hunt for a talc free powder to replace my beloved Ben Nye neutral set.

This did nothing.. It is little too light for me to wear and on top of BE foundation (whick is matte already) this gives even more matte, un-natural look. Also it has corn starch in it, so I will not be using this. I got it ion my BE Starter Kit.
