    Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

    I use this daily as my finishing powder. It just makes me glow! It sets my foundation and my skin looks and feels great all day. I usually am budget but after a few associates told me how they like Bare Minerals I tried it myself and my skin hasn't been this nice since before I hit puberty (I'm 32)! Now I'm hooked and modified my budget to accommodate buying a more expensive brand.

            Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

            I love to use a little concealer, eyeliner, mascara then apply the Mineral Veil & go! The illuminating mineral veil will be perfect for my sister's wedding in mid September. It wont run in the heat and it will reflect well in pictures too! Only con I could see is that it might be too much sparkle on my hands.

                  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.

                    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.
