        I've used this for a few years. It used to come in a color called fair and was a great fit. Now the lighter of the two color options is "light". This color is quite too dark for me. If the color is right for you its a great product,

            This product would be perfect if it came in a tube. The pump works for a while until the product becomes too thick and then I have to remove the top and scoop it out with a toothpick. As inconvenient as that is, I like it well enough to put up with the difficult removal.

                I used the bareminerals foundation with mineral veil for over two years. Last xmas I got this tinted primer as a gift and have used it in my daily makeup routine ever since. I now just do the primer and then finish with the foundation on top. I use the mineral veil for "going out" or "special" occasions.

                The primer goes on smoothly and it's light weight on the face, which I love. It blends nicely, evening out skin tone, blotchy spots, and blemishes. It has enough color to enhance my skin color, but isn't too much color where I can't blend the BM foundation into it. I haven't had any break out issues with it.

                    We recommend using either before your foundation application. Both do not have to be used, but if you do plan on using both, we recommend using them before your foundation and makeup application for the best results.
