Rated 4.62 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Use accordingly...
Initially I read it to be a veil so I never would use this powder to 'Set' anything! I only use it after everything is done and then I lightly dip my big powder brush one time, and swirl and bounce it softly in the cap. I swish it across my tzone and oily areas. It softens my look or harsh lines and ties everything together for a matte finish. Work, sweating, walking na k and forth all day. I stay looking as if I just applied everything....i wiuld use as a setting powder unless emergency moments
Most Helpful Critical Review Go Back To The Original Packaging
I think everyone knows by now that this is great at setting your foundation without building up, changing color, etc., so I am not reviewing it based on that. I would give it 5 stars for that alone. I am giving my review based on this so-called "travel friendly" container. Yes, it is good for travel because you can turn the lid to close the holes to prevent any from falling out. BUT, when it gets almost empty, you can no longer take the inner lid off to use the remaining powder. No matter how much, or how hard you shake it, it will not come out. You wind up throwing away a good amount of powder that could have been used otherwise. This container is very wasteful, and this stuff isn't cheap. Seems to me like BE has figured out a way to get more money from consumers. I will no longer purchase this anymore unless the original container is made available again. I'm nobody's fool!

Use it everyday

Light weight finishing powder that provides an effortless brushed look. Would highly recommend!
Better than Laura Mercier!
Violet from Dallas, Texas
This is one of the best setting powders I've ever used. Most powders aren't always translucent and tend to make my face feel thick. This powder goes on easily and spreads well with very little product used. I don't like most setting powders packaging and this one is no different, however there's a piece that covers the areas where it could potentially leak out, so that's a plus.
I love it!
Twin from Atlanta, Ga
I am brown skin and I have oily skin. I tried this product for the first time today and I'm in love. It's perfect. I bought the laura mercier translucent powder and to be honest I hate it. It does nothing for me. But this mineral veil is EVERYTHING!
Perfect! Will always use this as my face powder.
SRW from Fort Worth, Texas
This is my everyday powder over my creamy base makeup. I have a very nice skin complexion and like a more natural makeup look. This powder goes on light with a natural look and color.
Nice but messy
ShowMe Shopper from Cape Girardeau, MO
I like this for light coverage that helps tone down shine. It can be messy, though, and tricky to get the right amount on the brush.
Kendra from Washington
Bought the mini on a whim because of the reviews and for the first time in a long time, I was NOT let down! This stuff wowed me. The oil control is phenomenal and it's slightly tinted so my medium tan skin doesn't end up with a white cast. Love it so much (blows laura mercier's finishing powder out of the water) and is fairly affordable, so I bought the full size. my only request is that I wish it came in a bigger package with more product. I use quite a bit of this stuff and wish i could buy more at once.
Best loose powder ever!

Best loose powder without ever looking cakey!
Best powder for 15 years
Randies from Portland Oregon
I have been using this since I first discovered it about 15 years ago on an "infomercial" I still can't find anything that totally beats the mineral veil. Nothing else can minimize my pores on my cheeks without making my face look powdery and cakey. The veil leaves a smooth finish and is lightweight/breathable. I am not much of a "baker" I usually use this as an all over powder/finishing powder, however when I really want more coverage I will use to bake under my eyes and it always turns out smooth and doesn't settle into my eye creases. the only Con I have is that I wish it had a larger size option.
I have used this for years..
Lunasmommy99 from Lincoln, Ne.
i have used mineral veil for many years and have always loved the finish it provided to my liquid makeup. However, like other reviewers, I have noticed that the color has changed from a nice soft color to a orangey hue, which is making my makeup darker. I still love the finish, but this color change is off putting and I am hoping they return to the original color so I don't have to find another brand:(
Jackie from Shalimar
This is the best finishing product I've ever found. It gives such an even, smooth finish to foundation and makeup that gives a flawless finish.
I have oily skin and this is by far the best!
Christina from Taylors SC
Great fir oily skin
Love Love Love this!!!
Anna from MD
I love this product. I needed a good finishing powder and Bare Minerals is really light, bright, and clean on my face. I recommend watching videos on how to use it before actually using it because it helped me use it correctly and not use too much or too little product. Definitely will be buying again!!!
I love the coverage and finish of this product.
TriniGal from Melbourne, FL
I use it on its own or as a finishing powder. Both are great.
Sara G from Virginia Beach
So glad I tried this before buying a larger one. Would def recommend. It filled in my pores and set my makeup for 12 hours. I only got slightly oil, but I looked great allll day. Would def recommend and buy again.
I will definitely buy this again!
T from Brighton Colorado
I use it over my foundation because I hate being shiny!
Andreg from Orlando
I read comments about this to be "pink" and it does look pink BUT once you apply it on your skin, it doesn't have any color.
I like the way the packaging is mess-free and that you just need a bit of product.
This product is to be used to set the foundation with a powder brush, GENTLY applied. That way you will have your foundation all day!
I love this product
Teeter from OK
I LOVE Bare Minerals Powder foundation, and Mineral Veil Powder. I have used the bare mineral line for over 10 years, the coverage is wonderful and so adjustable you can wear it thicker for office or evening wear and light for summer, spring, outdoors, and weekend wear. I love this product and Ulta has downsized the space available for this product so much it is hard to find, and not readily available for purchase which is VERY disappointing.
Jae from California
I love this powder! A little is all that is needed to take the shine out of my T zone and set my makeup. Perfect size to take along with me, 10/10 would buy again.
MK from USA
I used to purchase the standard mineral veil for years, yet somehow this newer product turns me orange. I believe BareMinerals added a slight tint to their new formula to reduce white-cast, instead this is causing extreme oxidation/orange-cast. Please return to the original formula!
Not for me
Madison from CA
I was excited to try this, but it's just not right for my skin. I have combination skin and unfortunately it does not work with my dry patches. And it doesn't set my concealer well. In all honesty, my NYX is better and lasts longer throughout the day.
Misti from Omaha NE
I love this powder! I will buy it over and over again!
Ali D from Virginia
This is the only finishing powder I will use. It blends well with my extremely fair skin and keeps my foundation looking fresh. I have fine lines around my eyes and it never looks caked on. Simply the best!
Finishes your make-up

Finish off a perfect look for your make-up. Apply lightly after you get shadow, liner, blush applied. Softens all the effects and blends beautifully.
Mineral veil finishing powder is wonderful

Fluff this over your Bare Minerals makeup for a great look.
