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 4483 customers 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.

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!

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.
not for me
andreaxbaby from texas
It wasn't what i was looking for
PattiRN from Stevens Point WI
Daily use, easy application. Only thing bad is the cost.
So far so good
mrsdocb from North Carolina
I bought an off brand setting powder to use over my sunscreen since it leaves me skin super oily; however, the one I bought was just terrible. So I began searching for a new setting powder but everything has talc powder and it has been linked with lung issues, so no thank you. I've heard great things about this powder so I gave it a shot. So far, so good! My face is significantly less oily by the end of the day and I get to wear my sunscreen underneath!
reliable and good quality
EltheArtist from central Illinois, USA
I love finishing my look with this product to completely blur and make my skin look great. I have used for over a decade now.
orchadorkestra from Oregon
Always have loved BareMinerals mineral veil powders, and this is a new fave. I agree with others it appears slightly darker in real life, but I have relatively fair skin and it seems to set without any drastic or unusual color change. Leaves my face looking dewy and works well with setting both the BM liquid foundation and the elf cc cream.
Sammie from Georgia
Holy cow it's like a fine glitter bomb went off in this powder! I was not expecting that when it said illuminating! I was hoping for more of a glowy effect. The hydrating version of this achieves that nicely without all the sparkles. Might have to return this one even though I hate the idea of returning opened makeup. Ugh
Huh??? Where's the tint?!?!
Allyson6C from Continue
What's the sense in creating this finishing powder with tint if it's not going to show up at all on the skin? The reason I purchased this is BECAUSE of the added tint. I thought this would be a nice way to add a slight bit of warmth to the skin during the colder New England months instead of a bronzer - that it could be a more natural way of adding just a pinch of warmth because a separate bronzer can be obvious no matter how nice it looks. This powder gives such a beautiful finish to the skin & I thought how nice it might be having some added tint. Well..... it didn't show up on me - AT ALL! It doesn't look any different from the regular version. I'm Caucasian w/a medium complexion (med-tan in summer) & a VERY cool undertone, which I realize is unusual (med to med-tan don't usually veer so far on the cool side of undertones) but it's because of my very cool undertone I was SURE this would show up on me, the shade - how warm it looks in the jar, is sure to create a contrast, but nope.....nothin'. It looked no different from the non-tinted version. What a disappointment. I returned it because I already have a full container of the regular one - no sense in keeping it. I understand this is a finishing powder & not a bronzer, so I even went outside in natural light to see if the tint in it did anything at all, but no. I'm guessing that if the tint does show up on anyone, it would probably be those with fair to light complexions. I'm still very curious as to how it would look on those people because I'm still very intrigued by this product or the concept of it.

I love this but it's too orange! I was hoping to find something to wear by itself but I look sunburnt.
