Most Helpful Critical Review Isn't this the original just plus SPF?
I've used Mineral Veil translucent powder since I was a teen. I'm now almost 30. I bought this one because it had the added SPF which I badly need with my acne regimen. My acne regimen makes me incredibly prone to sun burns. I can't even be out for a second or my face is completely burnt, and it hurts so bad. I'm already dealing with adult acne for the first time in my life, now I have to worry about getting burned for the first time in my life, too.
I was so pumped when I noticed BM added SPF 25! I originally bought the mini version to try. It was orange and did not look like the original powder. It looked terrible on me! I thought maybe I got a bad batch? So I bought a few more minis to see because at this point the large isn't even available. SAME THING! I throw in the towel and decide it must be only the mini ones that are screwy. I buy the large container finally after weeks of waiting for the large to be back in stock during COVID-19. I tried it on.. it made me look like a ghost! It's not as orange, but it turns my face white. Whaaat?
Even after finishing my skincare routine with moisturizer, it embellishes dry spots that I didn't even see or feel! It almost looks like I used wet foundation, not powder. My skin looks worse when I have this on. It doesn't hide my pores either. The original translucent never does this to me. I'm not fair-skinned but I'm also not totally tan either. I'm so disappointed. Especially since that's so much money down the drain. I bet you're wondering why I don't just wear sunscreen haha. Well, I do, but I get burnt so easily I need to re-apply every hour at least. I wear powder, so I'd have to wash my face, moisturize, sunscreen, powder every hour! I wouldn't even do that if I were home 24/7 haha. That's why I wanted this so badly.
I do not recommend this product because it will not match every skin tone. It doesn't blend in well, and you can see how dry my face is even though you can't until I put it on. I included pictures. One is with it half on my face so you can see the difference in color. One has it all over my face so you can see the dry spots. And one is my face after my routine.
I don't like wearing makeup. I use the powder to keep my oily forehead in check and to give me a nice complexion. The original powder makes my face look beautiful-people comment on my skin even though I have acne (it's almost gone but still) and larger pores. I've even tried using different brushes on the SPF 25, but nothing changes how you can see all this dryness out of nowhere and how white my face is. It's honestly embarrassing because I'm already self-conscious about my skin. I'll need to figure something out because the natural sun protection in the original isn't enough. I really don't want to switch brands after over a decade of being with BM, but what can ya do? :(

This product is great! It's light enough that I don't feel like there's a ton of makeup caked on my face. It'a also not another color to match to my skin tone, which is a huge plus!
Lr315 from Plano, TX
While I love this powder I wouldn't call it translucent. I am on the fair side especially in the winter. I wear Bareminerals tinted moisturizer in the shade Ginger for and Shape Tape light-med sand reference. Even on my pale winter skin, a super light dusting of this powder makes me ghostly pale. I have to pile on bronzer to not look sick.
Formula not the same
Makeupislife from Austin
It's soooo light- it's not a transparent powder that I've used many years ago as a setting powder. It leaves a white cast- so sad. I'm tan so it's even worse. Perhaps this is great on lighter skin.
Not for me
Steffen1329 from arizona
I was really hoping to love this... but I didnt. It is very light, and no matter what brush I use to do a simple dusting over my face, it sticks to places (I have combo skin), doesn't blend, and then I have blotchy white spots on my face. Really dissapointed.
I will buy this product again
Trina from Texas
I wear it daily
Love Bare Minerals

When I wear make up I always use BareMinerals as it is not too heavy and I like how it works on my skin.
I have been using this product for years.
Clay Artist from Georgia
I use this product as a base because I have oily skin
It's light and keeps my makeup matte
No problems with this product every.
Loved the product but.....
MJ from WA
I used mineral veil for years. Like previous users the original was too whitish pink but the tinted was absolutely perfect. Once again, like previous reviews, the formulation or something has changed. The tinted is not longer a neutral color.... it is now orange and looks HORRIBLE on. I returned it and questioned the sales clerk. She told me that over time the minerals naturally change colors and that I must have gotten an old container. Well, I have tried a handful of times since then and they all are orange. I sadly had to change products but still miss my Bare Minerals.... Please fix this BM!!
The only powder/cover up I'll ever use again!
Haley from Oviedo, FL
My skin is extremely oily & no products ever worked on me to keep my face oil free. So I came in ulta & Kira walked up to me & asked how she could help & I told her my situation & she brought me right over to the bare minerals section & said this should work & WOW was she right!! I'm literally never using a different brand for my cover up or powder ever again it worked so amazing. I went the whole day without having to touch up my face it didn't look oily once.
Good for re-applying SPF over makeup
Abby from Saint Simons island, GA
Easy to apply and carry around in my purse. Ideal for re-application of SPF. I have oily skin but find it to be drying.
A Great Product!
Attila The Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
I've been using this setting powder for years, and I was thrilled when they put out one with SPF! It sets my makeup just like the Original. I know some have said that it leaves a white cast on the face, I haven't had that problem. This sets my makeup, even in hot and humid conditions, for about 12 hours. Apply with a light hand. I also recommend using a quality powder brush of your choice for best results with this product.
Pewter68 from NV
I got this on sale, and now love it. I kind of wish it wasn't so shimmery, but it still is a very nice product. I like having added sun protection in this powder as well. If you haven't tried it, please consider doing so. It really locks in makeup and my look lasts all day. I took off one star for the shimmer, as I'd have preferred less shimmer.
VERY pink undertone + whitecast!!
TIF127 from New York
I have light medium skintone and neutral undertones, but this powder did NOT work for me at all. I bought this because of its ability as a setting powder and as sun protection. However, to use sufficient amount for sun protection there is a VERY NOTICEABLE white cast and the pink tones of the powder definitely come through. I gave 2 stars for the quality and softness of the powder itself. Unfortunately I have to return this as it did not work for me.
I liked this before the change in color, too orange
Halloween grandma from Franklin, ID
I use this to finish off my make up. The original is too light and makes my face look ghosty. I started using the tinted and really liked it. However, I don't know what has happened, but the color on the tinted mineral veil has changed and it is way too orange. I have to buy an original and a tinted and mix them to tone down that horrible orange color. Now I have two containers to use up. I will most likely be looking for something else to set my make-up while I use this up.
Classic. Never heavy, always soft.
Bare minerals is good stuff! from KS
I use another foundation, but this is my go to make up setter.
Good cruelty-free product!
Hummingbird44 from Lakewood, CO
Returned product to use up my prior one first. I currently am using the "old" one over my foundation. I have found that the translucent color is really more pink, so I use just a little, since I have a warm/light undertone. I I would suggegst a true translucent color!
My go to powder
Deana from Charlotte, NC
This is my third time buying this and I will continue to buy it. I love this powder. It sets my makeup and keeps me oily free for majority of the day. It doesn't cake up or sticks to my dry spots. I love that it brightens up my face too without giving me a white overcast. Since we're wearing masks all the time I will only wear this and it gives me a little coverage.
Light and dry
Tani from NY
Nice powder however it dried out my skin after a couple of hours. I love that it has spf

Makes you look to pale
I've been using this forever!
Julia from AK
A perfect primer for bare minerals foundation.
ada5 from WV
Bareminerals has always been a fave of mine, but this is hands down the best product they offer! I have no where near perfect skin, or anything close to that, but I can actually wear this and nothing else, and feel totally comfortable! The blur is AMAZING! It's super sheer & light, but covers perfectly! I love using this as a setting powder as well! Such an awesome product!
Love this product!
Stephanie from Minneapolis
This is a great product for wearing on top of concealer or tinted moisturizer. I love that it has SPF 25 and it looks great on my skin.
Kalina from Waianae
Gives my skin a flawless complexion and sun protection, I have been using this product for years, love this mineral veil!
