      I use this product daily. Wonderful! I love the shimmer that this product gives.. very youthful. I was not impressed with the amount of time that it took to receive my order. I will purchase this product again, but I will be reconsidering where and how.

      I first tried the illuminating veil in a kit back at Christmas time. I loved it so much that when I ran out of my veils it's the one I knew I was going to get. It leaves me with a beautiful, healthy, glowing finish.

          Too light on face. Tends to whiten a suntan. A little tint in this product would be nice.

              • Q:

                I love this Illuminating Mineral Veil but I'm of buying the Gold Mineral Veil just to try it. Can you tell me the difference between the two? I have olive skin by the way. I sure do appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

                  A:

                  The difference is subtle! Illuminating Mineral Veil features a brightening dewy finish, while Brightening Gold Mineral Veil features a soft glowing golden finish.

              • Q:

                Can I use this on bare skin? I don't like foundation but do like to have a nice glow that minimizes imperfections. I have combo/dry in winter and oily in summer, which one would you recommend? Have not tried any of the baremineral but wanted to give it a try.

                  A:

                  While you can apply to bare skin, for best results for those with your skin type, we suggest moisturizing with an oil-free lightweight moisturizer and/or priming prior to application. Prime Time Oil Control helps to keep skin mattified all day and helps extend this product's wear:
                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4380093

                  Illuminating Mineral Veil provides sheer coverage and helps to minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections. It also provides a subtle luminous glow.

                Hi,
                Is bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil suitable for Asian fair skin? Is Natural light the lightest color and is Illuminating one tone darker than the Natural light?

                Thanks

                  A:

                  This product is formulated with light-diffusing minerals to lessen imperfections, even and illuminate the complexion, and absorb excess oil. bareMinerals cannot claim that this product will make you look 10 years younger, though it does minimize pores and fine lines. To conceal blemishes, try bareMinerals Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 or bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer. You may want to consult your child's dermatologist regarding use of this product or any other product before adopting it into his/her regimen.
