Rated 4.55 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 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???

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 Love the glow!
Kam from New Mexico
I've used this product for years. The illumination it gives me is great. People have commented about how my skin glows. I have it 4 stars because it doesn't do much for oily shine.
A happy accident!
Broget from WA, USA
I bought this Hydrating Mineral Veil by accident - it's been years since I refreshed mine, and I mistook this for the original, Illuminating Mineral Veil. Since I have both now I've been comparing them and I have to say, although I was turned off by the color at first, on my face this is hands down the winner. It sets my makeup without emphasizing any of the dry patches on my (mature) skin and provides the natural, matte finish I like, while on the other hand I feel the illuminating mineral veil emphasizes my fine lines more than I'd like.
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.
If I'm being honest I hate it
Gia from NC
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!
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.
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.
I will definitely buy this again!
T from Brighton Colorado
I use it over my foundation because I hate being shiny!
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.
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.
I would buy again
Natfashion30 from Mo
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!
Skinny from Hi
Love this product!!
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.
I love this product!!!

I love this powder! I will buy it over and over again!
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
Sandy from Kentucky
Great fir coverage
