I like this one more than pinkfish since it gives my lips more color. I bought a few more as backup.
I was hesitant buying it online since it's not sold in stores so I couldn't see how it actually looks. But once I received it, I absolutely love it, very nice quality & looks very nice. It can hold a lot of stuff & comes with removable dividers containing pouches to hold items like lipsticks.
I've using this for a few weeks, it is gentle for my sensitive skin.
For some reason, the lid is extremely difficult to open, I have to grab the plastic lid from the side to open it. The color is not that special. I will only use it occasionally.
I don't think it's that useful. Any eyeshadow highlight color can mimick the effect of this product. Besides this is liquid and not as easy to control the amount. I returned mine to Sephora.
I love the scent! It's one of my favorite perfume!!!
I have stopped using mineral foundation due to breakout but I still use this mineral veil since the ingredient corn starch helps with absorbing oil ( i have oily T zone). After I use BB cream (which is developed in Korea, a combination of base & foundation), I apply mineral veil on my T zone, and it works great to control shine/oil.

I agreed with the previous comment that it smells awful, it has a strong herbal smell. I got it as sample from Sephora, I don't think I will buy it in full size.

I tried it at Sephora, it feels very moisturizing but I can't stand the scent of it.
I like that it's minty, and quite moisturizing, but not enough for winter time when the weather is really dry. I think Blistex works better to prevent chapped lips.
I actually like the subtle color of the mineral shadow trio, however it caused breakout to my sensitive eyelid just few hours later...I guess mineral makeup is just not for my sensitive skin, especially products containing bismuth.

It does what it claims to prevent creasing, however it dries out my lids quickly and hard to blend. Too faced insurance works a bit better however it became flaky on my upper lids. I think so far I like Bare Escentuals eyelid primer the best, which was recommended by a saleslady at sephora. I also use MAC eye primer occasionally but the crease proof effect is not as lasting.
Very great product! I got it from sasa.com for a lower price compared to sephora or shu uemura website. I was using lancome for a long time until I got this shu uemera one. This one works so different, it just "grabs" all my lashes at once easily, the result is amazing!
At first I amazed at the result of the makeup because it was "weightless" compared to traditional foundation, so I bought the starter kit from Sephora. However, my skin responded terribly to it. I had breakout on my cheeks and eyelids where I normally don't get any acnes (normally the acne-prone area is at my Tzone area only)...later I learned that it's probably due to Bismuth Oxychloride in the mineral foundation. So I would never buy this foundation again. However other products from BE that doesn't contain Bismuth should be okay, I like to use their eyelid primer.
I have two of these, one for correction during makeup at home, one I put in my purse since I tend to get raccoon eye especially under my eyes (even though I use primer, waterproof products & loose powder for eye makeup) This is very easy to use, very efficient , just need to use a tissue to wipe off the tip afterwards so that it's clean next time you use it. Also use Q-tips to absorb the oil residue leaving on skin is important too. So tissue & Q tips are important accessories for this product to work ideally.
