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???
Reviewed by 4494 customers Good for tan-colored skin
Makeupnovice from Houston TX
I was skeptical about using since it's kind of a "one size fits all" type. I'm very glad this one is tinted. It works well for me. I've been doing a lot of outside activity and while using my same bare minerals foundation powder I can still wear it without the color looking off. I add Warmth as a bronzer around my face and finish with tinted mineral veil. Works for me without over drying and looking unnatural.
I tried well rested and it was very chalky on me.
I will continue to use and purchase again.
Holy dark orange
mmiissyy from Phoenix, AZ
I must have gotten a bad batch or something, but I am way too scared to even try again. This was SO dark, I could have sworn it was bronzer. I guess you could use a tiny tiny bit, but then what's the point?
Bria from Kuna Idaho
This powder GLOWS. It's not shimmery or sparkly, it's sheer and gives you a radiant, natural finish. And it will keep your makeup in place for the entire day, and even the entire night! I'm obsessed. I prefer the loose powder mineral veil over the pressed powder version. The loose powder gives you a sheer finish. The pressed powder, for some reason, seems to give off a more "matte" vibe. I'm obsessed.
Unhappy with container design
Mona from Boulder, Colorado
I love this finishing powder, but hate the container. Not all of the powder can be accessed with the sifter attachment - it should be designed to come off to be able to use every bit of product. Static electricity makes remaining product stick to the dispenser.
yoolax from Marlboro, NJ
this is the BEST powder i have ever used. i dont buy higher end products but this is the only exception. i use a damp beauty blender to apply this under my eyes and it gives the most AMAZING FINISH lasts for hours too. definitely get this powder
My number one
Cinder543 from Texas
I used as a setter on my foundation, also when not wearing makeup as it controls shine, I'm 58 yrs young and have been through many veils, transparent, and I've been using it for years. I also use it to mix with some of my darker blushes to lighten as well, it's truly not just a translucent powder, be creative with it. I love bare minerals, it's a safer product than most as well for sure!
Amy Lynn from Milton, PA
It definitely is illuminating. But in a glittery way. This is very glittery, so if you dont like glittery setting powder dont purchase. I however, love anything glowy. It looked beautiful. Doesnt make my skin look dry.
Amy Lynn from Milton, Pa
This feels cooling on the skin. Gave my skin an airbrushed look and didn't make my skin look dry and cakey. I however, for the price wish that you get a bigger jar. I was shocked at how small the jar actually is. Also, I received this with no box. I was confused to why it didn't come in a box. Turns out none come in a box. I expected a little more for the price and brand
the most perfect powder i have ever used!
moolax from NJ
I usually stick to drugstore brands, but this is one of the few higher end products that I swear by. I have combination skin and quite a bit of texture, this powder gives the most AMAZING finish to my skin. I use a damp beauty blender and press the powder onto oily areas. The results look skin-like and NOT CAKEY -- also, no flashback. Will be repurchasing!
great sustainable powder!!
sophie from united states
i've been using this vegan mineral based powder for a few years now and it's the best one! it definitely blends well over my concealer!
A must have
LauraQ from Wisconsin
I have used this brand pretty exclusively as my finishing powder. I used the regular Mineral Veil for many years and switched to the hydrating as I got older. It is a staple for me.
My holy grail face powder!
Quorra from Arizona
I've been using the Illuminated Mineral Veil for probably 15 years. It's such a beautiful face powder. I have oily skin and this makes the skin look flawless and lovely. It's not glittery or super shimmery, it's just a light illuminating effect. Color also hasn't changed, I'm not sure why other reviews are saying as such. Maybe just for the Original. This one is the same as always. Please never discontinue this product Bare Minerals!!
Staple product in my lineup.
541KAS from Logan, OH
Use daily over a primer and/or foundation. Minimizes pores, blurs and never feels cakey or heavy.
Best formula sad shade range
Sarah M from Detroit
This powder is a game changer with formula. It's a perfect finish without making u look Cakey and adds a beautiful glow! However I have a tan skin tone and It's WAY too light. It makes me look like a ghost. the tinted mineral veil is also too red and deep for me! I have mixed the two together to get my perfect holy grail product but it's sad someone should have to do that. I've also seen Black girls say that even the tinted one is far too light for them! Bare minerals please step up your shade range! I can never recommend these products to my other friends without telling them how I've become a chemist and my Black friends DONT even have the option to mix two expensive products together to get their shade. All skin tones deserve to feel beautiful and if you as a brand stepped up your inclusion I could see a lot of consumers trying and loving your products.
Love it and recommend it!
Deb from Ma
Beautiful over creme foundation
Pixiesoldier from Davenport Florida
I apply after creme foundation on all areas except under eye and spritz with setting spray on top. Helps keep makeup from sliding in humid weather. Also works well on eyelid with primer or concealer for shadow base.
best finishing powder
Cait from cookeville tn
I try other brands of finishing powder but always find myself going back to this one. does exactly as described and shown in the photos.
bbcash01$ from NJ
THIS is the best powder i have ever used. a little goes a long way and it makes your skin look absolutely flawless all day, especially in pictures. expensive, but worth every penny imo.
One of my favorites
yogamom from Oklahoma
I love the light shimmer. A little goes a long way. Wears all day even through workouts.
This is my favourite Finishing Powder
AngelMommie from Northern IL
I use Bare Minerals Finishing Veil every day. It sets my Foundation and holds up all day. It's translucent, so it won't add any funky-coloured tinge to my skin.
I would buy this over and over again. Have used for years.
Ilah from MN - Minnesota
Been buying this product for years. Out of stock at time of purchase. Store is mailing to me.
Big disappointment. Will be returning.
Mel from NH
I'm fair skinned, with a pink undertone. This is not flattering at all. It's tinted orange, like a creamsicle. No thanks. I'll be returning this expensive, unusable product. Super disappointed.
Tay from Michigan
Wow, I've tried 6 different brands of setting powder and this is the winner by far! Does what it says blurs pores + imperfections without making me look cakey. and Sets my makeup beautifully and doesn't irritate my face.. Talc-free is the way to be! I took a pic after a sitting outside during a blustery drizzly softball game👌🏼
AlFan from Mobile, AL
I was expecting a light & natural feel, but this powder made my skin horribly dry! I will not buy again.
Great for mature or dehydrated skin
Beauty-lover from Central Jersey, NJ
After I do my daily morning cleansing ritual, which includes SPF, I use a primer and use this on top of my primer and I'm out the door. It makes my skin look so perfect but under the eyes, I must use a light hand because it's a little drying.
