My friend gave me a huge jar of this for my birthday, and it is my favorite powder to use. I use to bake my undereyes on nights I go out. It gives the most flawless, glowy effect. It makes me feel confident, and I always get compliments when I use it. I wouldn't recommend for oily skin, as it gives a highlighting/dewy look. I highly recommend. A++

Clogged my pores. Gave me horrible spots. Left nasty scars afterwards.
STAY AWAY from this horrendous powder!!

I have very dry skin and used judiciously this powder is beautiful and dewy. If I use more than that I recall why glutton is a sin. A little is glorious, while a lot negates the initial dewiness replacing it with a glittery sheen that will confirm all your worst suspicions about the powder you likely had in the first place. It looks/seems counterintuitive to use this as a setting powder, especially if you're on the North side of 40 like I am. But suspend your cynical makeup disbelief and lightly pat this on, I like a fan brush. It's made of ether, and ground fairy wings (free range fairies, and only those with naturally shedding wings. Of course). Somehow instead of accentuating every little flaw, fine line, drier areas, instead it seems to sit above them and optically blur imperfections. Now I can go back and use as a highlighter in certain areas, but again, not all over. Right now I'm using self tanner at night on my face, then no foundation, just spf, spot concealer, and this powder to con people into thinking I've got great skin and it's working! The original mineral veil is fine as a standard setting powder, if not a bit too pink for me, being a fair olive. While this clearly has that same pinky cool undertone, it somehow works. It lasts all day, I only set with a mist of spring water, and feels soothing while some products in the line make my skin feel like I've wrestled with a hornets nest. My dry skin looks illuminated with no perceptible shimmer flecks. Whatever hocus pocus this is, it really flatters me and I wonder if others may have simply used too much and/or have less dry skin that is accentuated in a less than flattering way by a powder of this sort?

I understand this product is to be used as an all over face setting powder..but I have to agree with the other reviewers that it is quite sparkly. In that case, I use it as a highlighter and I love it. It's similar to MAC Soft and Gentle but the sparkle is much more fine and soft where as Soft/Gentle is quite glittery. I think the key here is to apply with the "less is more" approach and you should be fine. I used a feather fan brush to apply at the tops of my cheekbones and a very light dusting on my forehead and I really like the results - it's a very pretty highlighter. I took off one lippie because it's messy.

I have super oily skin... N tried " every " setting powder.. The original BE Mv.. Was to dull n matte... I gav the illuminating MV a try, n I'm glad I did.. I was skepiticital bout it being to sparkly, but it's definitely not!!! Goes on super smooth, giving u an airbrush finish.. Not heavy, does not break me out.. It gives u illuminating, dewy skin.. That's hard to get, out of a powder.. I 💗 this product!!!! 💋❌💋

*I'm reviewing the BE Illuminating Veil, the new name for the Feather Light veil.*I'm on a huge "glow from within" kick at the moment and couldn't resist trying this. For starters, in direct sunlight, this is very sparkly. Visible small sparkles all over your face. I only use this in the evening due to that. Any women who are matte girls all the way, do not purchase this. As a plus, indoors and at night it is really pretty. It's also very versatile. It could double as just a highlighter, can be mixed with your eyeshadow base if thats your thing, and even to dust along your chest shoulders for an illumating effect. As an everyday veil, it is really just too sparkly, but for evenings, I love it.

Compared to the original Mineral Veil, Feather Light is just absolutely bizarre with its glitter overload. I think this would work better as an eyeshadow or maybe if you were going to a rave. Absolutely shocked at how much glitter was in it for a finishing powder.

I bought this when I was on my luminous, "lit-from-within" kick. It simply has too much shimmer/glitter to be used all over the face. I use it as a highlight or in the evenings on occasion but for the most part it just sits in my drawer.

this is so starnge. i got it as a sample and im very glad i didnt purchase it. it looks shimmery on my skin. it doesnt look good over makeup or alone for me. it def doesnt diffuse any perfections, but instead makes them more pronounced. i didnt give this a 1 bc it looked good on a friend of mine who has sligtly darker skin than mine, so i guess its bc im so pale. i wont be buying this.
