    Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

    I first purchased this product to use as a highlighter. I tried using it all over as a finishing touch and LOVE it! Basic Mineral Veil is still excellent but this leaves an even better finish.

    very sparkly...

    By justme

    Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

    When I tested this on my hand in the store, it appeared to be a very subtle shimmer, so I went ahead and purchased it. However, when I put it on at home, it looked like I had been working on a glittery craft project. Definitely not the effect I was looking for... Sadly will be returning it for another mineral veil product... I really wanted to love this. :(

    I like to look, but not the feel. It feels like baby powder on my skin. If it was a bit finer I would love it.

        Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

        I love this for the little shimmer it has, in winter it gives that brightness you need and in the summer it fits the lightness of the season. Plus at 50yo it gives you an all around glow without being too youthful, and it never sets into the fine lines and I hate to say, "creases!" Yes, I'm totally high on this product. I wear it alone with only a primer and under foundation. Day our night!

        the inside twist lid is a pain! you can't get the last bit of product out and i feel it's a real waste of a pricey make-up.

              This makes my face appear oily if I use too much so beware of that when you apply or if you already have oily skin as I do. Other than that, it does make my face seem brighter and more glowing.

              • 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:

                  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

                Can I use this to cover my zits? what about my kids acne?

                and will it make me look 10 years younger?

                  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.
