Most Helpful Positive Review Like Nothing I've Ever Used Before
When I first saw this product online, I was a little weary. It was kind of confusing to think of a hydrating powder. I decided to go ahead and purchase, and I am in LOVE! When I opened it up I was worried because there was a sheen to the powder and it looked a little dark to be translucent. Once applied, it didn't change the color of my makeup and it brightened beautifully, and it felt like nothing was there! I have incredibly dry skin all year round and powders always look unflattering and flakey on my skin and I can always feel the powder. This doesn't make my skin look and feel drier than it is, it isn't detectable, it photographs beautifully, and I can barely feel it on my skin. I'm absolutely in love. Give it a try!
Most Helpful Critical Review COLOR CHANGE
I have used Orginal Mineral Veil for 15 years now, the last time I went to purchase, the color changed. It was a pale translucent powder, which worked for me no matter how pale or tan I was. It is now a peach orange color, which DOES NOT blend with fair skin. My daughter is a pale redhead and this made her skin look orange, looked like she had on cheap makeup! Very disappointed in the changing of this formula! There already are tinted variations, for darker skin. What about those with very pale skin, Bare Minerals???

This product was annoying for the beginning it took forever to open and it was very hard to do it. It also is a glitter in a skin shade which in my opinion sucks. I would definitely go for a OG bare minerals powder
JUST BOUGHT 8!!!!
BEAUTY JUNKIE from TX
I have been using this for the passed 9 years and will never stop! I recently purchased 8 just in case it ever gets discontinued. This illuminating veil sets my foundation, any type too and makes me look years younger. Does not dry out skin either, just DO NOT USE AROUND EYES OR FOR BAKING, not meant for that. I also advise to use it with the Bare Minerals flawless face brush(not the full flawless brush). A little is all you need!
Can't open. Packaging sucks.
NaN from Ny
Cannot open this! If I can't open it I can't use it. And since I scratched up the casing trying to open it I can't return it. Going straight in the garbage. Yes a waste of money.
Color was more of a bronze, than beige—returned it.
jakecharm from Michigan
Like the original mineral veil but wanted a tint. As soon as I saw the color, knew it wasn't for me.
I would buy again

Only used once so too soon to tell that's why only the 4 stars but when I did use I really liked. Absolutely no orange color as other reviewers had experienced, I was worried since I have fair to light skin but the color was great. Felt good on and didn't notice my lines as much but forwards the end of the day I did notice them. May have to tweak other products because I do like this finishing powder.
Dz from St louis
I am a 40+ woman and I use this as a setting powder over my concealer and forehead for glow- not shine, not sparkle, just glow! Or sometimes as an all over brightener instead of full coverage foundation. Love it!

The thinest powder I've ever used.
Heidy from Los Angeles
I love it for setting my dry under eyes and my whole face. It's the softest powder I've ever used.
Great setting powder for liquid or powder foundation
Shoemy from CO
This works well to set powder or liquid foundation or tinted moisturizers. Gives nice mattifying effect without being overly dry.
I love this product

Great fir coverage
A must have!
Kat29 from Des Moines, IA
This is by far my favorite finishing powder! I love how it sets my makeup for a flawless finish without making my skin feel like it is drying up.
A dry skin girls best friend!
Bnerdy12 from Philadelphia
This is the best powder for someone with dry skin! Doesn't look powdery, doesn't make sky look more dry. Perfects the overall look. So amazing.
Meh. Wish someone said it has PINK in it
Nat from Florida
Only reason i bought this was because it was half off on a sale. Upon initial application; it looks normal but dries down PINK. Yes pink. No one can convince me otherwise. The "illuminating" is like a pink sheen. I still haven't decided if I'm returning because i just mix it with another powder and it's actually pretty. BUT BE WARNED
Great product for no makeup makeup
B the mom from Bridgton me
I use a foundation brush and dab in in the powder, then tap the excess off. A little goes a long way. It makes me looks tanner then I am, darker then my foundation. I use instead of makeup on lazy days. Or as contouring
Going to repurchase

So shimmery and gorgeous. I love it
Spudyloco from Wisconsin
I purchased online for I store pick up. When I got home, the hygienic plastic tabs were all broken off. It didn't look used, so I tried it anyway (against my better judgement). Regardless, my skin is too dry for this product. Not entirely surprising as not many powder products work for my very dry skin, but this one was no different than any other product w/o hydrating claim. Will be returning secondary to Ulta's great return policy.
Jangee from Texas
I have extremely sensitive skin. I was hoping this would work to give my some cover on my red spots. nope! it burned so bad & had a smell that bothered me so much.
Monica from Fayetteville,AR
I have used this for years.
Mine was perfect!
Peachdust from Orlando Fl
I was concerned after reading some recent reviews that the formula had changed & was orange-y. My powder arrived today. Perfect finish nice & glowing finish- NO orange tint whatsoever. So maybe others received product from a bad production run. Again my was a perfect product!
I would definitely buy this product again.
Cindy from Longs ,SC
