i love how mineral veil smooths out my skin tone

- Sephora User

i have reasonably clear and smooth skin, and thought the foundation by itself did wonders, but the mineral veil goes the extra step and makes your skin look radiant

- Sephora User

staying power


another great feature i love about bareminerals mineral veil is that it stays on and looks great all day long--even through sweat and heat

- Viewpoints User

this product really keeps the shine down and makeup stays on all day

- Ulta User


blends well

my gosh it is absolutely amazing just a little swirled on my braasch my paws disappear my eyeshadow is blended perfectly it never dries my face it's always exactly what i need and stays right where i put it

- Sephora User

also never screams "highlighter" instead truly blends-out to a wonderful natural plush skin finish with just the right amount of glow -- like you're trying to suppress a passionate memory lol

- Nordstrom User



i love how lightweight it is

- Ulta User

i love how long this last and how light weight it feels

- Ulta User



i love how this illuminates my skin

- Ulta User

this morning, i put on my primer, and then just this duo - matte all over my face, and luminous for my eyeshadow along with some mascara and lip gloss

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

it just seems to "finish" the whole look, it just seems to blend with the foundation to make a more natural, clean coverage that is light and also helps to minimize pores

- Ulta User

i tried this product years ago and will never go back to liquid makeup that you have to touch up all day long and it blocks your pores

- Ulta User

under eye

good for under eye

this finishing powder is the only one i've ever found that doesn't build up (day into night), stays matte, doesn't settle into creases under my eyes and makes my skin look healthy and clean

- Ulta User

it keeps my makeup looking fresh all day and nothing moves, but it also doesn’t look cakey and works really well for preventing my under eye concealer from creasing

- Sephora User


no flashback

the finish is truly 'glowing', without being flash

- Bareescentuals User

it's really sheer so it doesn't ever make my face look ashy or overly pale, but it gives me just a hint of color to really finish my overall look

- Sephora User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

this product perfectly sets my makeup (complexion rescue tinted moisturizer) and doesn't change the color of my face - not too dark and not too light

- Bareminerals User

this powder really helps in setting my makeup with a glow, and i love that it's not cakey and doesn't turn orange on my skin

- Sephora User



my skin looks natural when i wear it, i feel like i am not wearing any make-up at all, and i receive compliments about how great i look at 42

medium coverage

great natural finish, lightweight, and medium coverage

- Sephora User

i would recommend this product to any woman who wants light coverage, medium coverage, or maximum coverage

- Viewpoints User

best use

packing product

mineral veil helps to reduce shine and gives me a great evenness to my skin tone without adding three or four layers of product

- Sephora User

it makes my skin completely even without feeling like i have an extra layer of product on

Sensitive skin friendly Everyday setting powder. Balances skin throughout the day. Love this! Doesn’t clog pores and cause breakouts.

Oil? Who is she? I never heard of HER!!

FYI: This is for the MATTE finish, NO color.Anyways. It's a Saturday night and I could be doing so much but after online shopping and seeing some reviews, I figured let's add goodness.This powder is truly meant for me. I dont know why I settled for more expensive powders and non natural looking powders...For $32 CAD....this is worth every penny.I swirl on my skin after foundation application and it makes me look literally flawless. I have acne prone skin, textured skin from acne scarring, minor clear flesh bumps - and this product makes it look less aggressive and less rough. It honestly blurs out the imperfections, pores and lines. Like it makes you look picture perfect ready. It seems to be like an eraser where it makes your skin go from a 5 to a solid 7.Now speaking of the REAL job...oil control. Lord...what do I say. This ACTUALLY keeps my skin matte and oily skin under control. I wear makeup in the early AM for my job and I get oily around 1:30 PM ~. I blot my face during lunch and I get a sheet that's not oilier than McDonald's fries. Like it keeps skin at a healthy glow. It keeps the oil away to the point where I believe the U.S HATES this product....because the U.S tries to invade my face since it's so oily but this product fights it off. Oil where?I will not ever use another other product. This has healthy ingredients. I CAN pronounce all of the ingredients. It has less than a handful of ingredients as well.The ZEA MAYS keeps the oil away and the MODIFIED corn starch keeps skin silky.This is how my oils are very minimal and I look airbrushedWow. What a product...and it doesn't smell. Doesn't feel heavy. Hasn't broken me out either Less

I LOVE this Powder Duo!

I read numerous negative reviews about this product, but decided to take a leap of faith and try it anyway. I'm SO glad I did!I have extremely fair skin (beyond porcelain, if you can believe it!) with dark brown hair and blue eyes. My skin tends to be quite dry. I'm blessed with virtually invisible pores, but because I'm so fair, my dark circles are more pronounced and any redness around my nose stands out.I've always liked setting my concealer & cream blush with Mineral Veil. The only downside has been that no matter how light handed I am (and as I'm getting older), though it blends beautifully, it always makes my skin look even drier.I've tried every "dewy", "luminous", "glow" product out there and they always make my fair skin look greasy, shimmery, unnatural and fake. Uh, no.This Powder Duo is perfect! So finely milled it even works on/around my eyes with no drying or enhancing fine lines. The Illumination is EXACTLY what I've wanted for years! So natural, it's as if Im wearing nothing at all...BUT! the difference without it is noticeable. No one notices my makeup "oooh, I love your glow stick!" ), they notice my great skin.I've experienced none of the issues other customers express about the pallet being too hard or product not coming off on the brush. Mine is very densely packed and only releases a small amount at a time on the brush, but it's all you need and it's buildable. Any more, your pallet would be empty in a week like so many very inexpensive brands. If I rub my finger across, plenty of product releases. If your pallet truly is so hard packed no product is coming off, perhaps it's from a defective lot?Please keep this product coming, it's wonderful!!! Less

Foundation Concealer in one!

I started using this foundation at the height of its popularity and it was my daily foundation for YEARS. I used to be obsessed with flawless coverage, despite my skin being relatively clear other than a handful light acne marks, one or two darker acne marks, and maybe one pimple. I wore medium-heavy full coverage foundation daily to completely hid it all. And usually no other makeup. The medium-heavy foundation and my obsessive powdering of my oily skin was almost definitely clogging my pores and leading to the acne.Switching to BareMinerals lessened the number of products I was using on my skin, hid what I wanted to hid, looked way more natural, was fun to put on, and provided great SPF as well. I loved that after "buffing" the foundation powder on, I could use the powder powder as concealer as well on any darker spots and it blended perfectly and way more easily than the stick concealer I had been using. And the "concealer" coverage lasted much longer. BareMinerals doesn't sell the same concealer burst as I have anymore but I'm sure their new one works as well. Mine is like a double sized eyeshadow brush, with bristles stiffer than an eyeshadow brush and less thick than a usual concealer brush. (Well actually I have two! I used to carry one in my bag for touch ups.)Also, my skin definitely improved.I got older and started a PhD program and stopped caring as much about coverage (and the acne lessened a bit) so moved on to just a tinted moisturizer and a quick brush of translucent powder for daily use. What I miss most how well the BareMinerals powder blended as a concealer when I was using this as foundation. « less

If you want to accentuate your fine lines and wrinkles...sure

Yeah for minerals I said! Yeah for a product that isnt a greasy heavy cream or stick, or thick gloopy mess! It wont clot my pores, wont upset my delicate and allergic skin, will wash off easily, wont be messy...I had a thousand reasons I wanted this product! Wow, how I wanted this product. I paid (the full price when it first came out I might ad) and anxiously awaited for the set to arrive. I paid the extra monies to have the (then) optional DVD of how to apply and use the product with it as well because frankly I have never been much of a makeup wearer. I am allergic to most things, especially anything in cream form, or anything with an oil/petrolium base, so my selection of this product was done very carefully and after speaking with a representative. Now, mind you, I am no spring chicken, but I dont have definate wrinkles either, just the precurser of lines to the forehead, I dont even have laugh or smile lines. But boy did this product just set me up to look old. I watched the video all the way through once just for general interest, the next time I watched, I sat with the products and tried them all out with the video directions. I wasnt real happy with how it applied to my face, settling into every nook and cranny and into anything that was even hinting at being a wrinkle in the next millenium! I tried a different application, same, I tried more, same. I tried different brushes, different techniques, even talked to the company about what I was doing wrong. Guess what? Nothing. There is just a small percentage of us that this make up wont work for. Light and thin skinned people or heavily haired persons she said. Lovely. Seems like they should have put that on the ad to begin with. So ladies, if you are light, thin or hairy skinned, dont bother. This product is not for you. And if you have allergies that focus themselves mostly on your eyes, dont bother either, I had a horrible eye reaction to the eye shadows. They may be natural minerals, but they are still minerals and cause the same bad allergy affects. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

What is a good setting spray for someone who gets sweaty extremely easy and has very oily skin?
Profile picture of Dimitri Coonrod

The answer would be...No setting spray! If you’re extremely oily or prone to over active sweating, skip this step! Your focus should be finding a long-wearing, mattifying powder that will lock your makeup in place. Setting sprays can do wonders for dehydrated skin, or for melting makeup and powder together, but for someone who’s dealing with makeup melting away already, this step won’t serve you much use other than locking that makeup in for a few hours. I’ve noticed MUCH longer longevity in applications where I simply used a powder as my final setting step. To bring back a subtle glow or demi-matte finish, consider using a *finishing* powder after your setting powder. They aren’t the same thing! A finishing powder can bring a healthy, subtle skin-like finish to your makeup without any extra coverage or heaviness, and this is always what I opt for on oily clients who sweat easily!

That’s the *hydrating mineral veil* (it’s written at the bottom), and it’s really good. I have dry skin under my eyes and it’s been always good to me. Also for the fine lines. It’s a good price and lasts forever ☺️
