      I really like the mineral veil and was a little hesitant about getting the illuminating veil because it does shine and bring some attention to my face. But it is summer and I love the effect. Happy I went for it.

            Comments about BareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder:

            I love the original Mineral Veil as a setting powder, but I thought I'd try the Illuminating version to achieve a more "glowy" finish. Unfortunately, part of what makes this an illuminating powder is that it has glitter in it...LOTS of glitter. It still provides a nice soft finish, but the sparkles just make it look less natural than I would like. Maybe as a highlighter it would be OK, but it's not ideal as an all-over powder. I'll use the rest of the container, but I'll probably be going back to the original version when it's gone.

                      • Q:

                        Has anyone with dark skin tried this? If so, does it make you look dead/paler, overly shiny, or too made up? A lot of times they say 'for all skin types' and I tend to find out that that's not really the case for darker skinned chicks like me. I want to buy the original in-store but they never have it in stock so I'm tempted to try one of these other mineral veils in case they still don't have it at the 2 locations near me.

                          The BareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder should be suitable for all skin shades as it is a translucent powder. We recommend using the BareMinerals BARESKIN® PERFECTING VEIL if you are concerned about the shade. This way, you can select a finishing powder based on your skin tone.

                        Hello. I know i can just walk into a Ulta to get my answer however I wont be able to get there soon. Im looking for a powder to set my cream under eye concealer. Is it flattering to use the Illuminating powder to set my under eye concealer? Im thinking Bare Minerals leans more on the natural look therefore the illuminating powder will still look pretty natural, even for under eyes..., right? What do you think? I do have a few lines under my eyes, but nothing major. Iam looking for a honest opinion, from a perfessional. When it comes to makeup, I like what I like, however its not always the best choice for me. Lol. Thank you!

                          You should not lose the luminosity of the BareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder if you are using a setting spray. The minerals included in this item naturally reflect light and should not be altered by setting sprays.

When paired with your foundation (whether powder or liquid), it can set your makeup, therefore allowing your makeup to last longer.

                          Hi,
                          Thank you for your question. Illuminating Veil gives a pearly, ethereal glow that reflects light for a photo-fabulous look or and everyday all around glow. It includes a mineral ingredient called Mica that provides that mini sparkle, but is not like glitter. I hope the description helps, the other option is to view it one of our Ulta locations. Happy Shopping!
