Product Review: Bare Minerals Mineral Veil

Bare Minerals Mineral Veil

I got a deluxe sample size of this popular mineral setting powder from Sephora. My skin has become so dry that my Marcelle pressed powder actually hurt a bit these days, so I had to find a talc-free powder to go over my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.

When you look at the powder itself, the Mineral Veil appears pink, even though it is supposed to be translucent. I do find that it goes on with a very slight pink tone to my skin (because my skin has yellow undertones I can see it on my bare skin), even more so when I put this on top of the tinted moisturizer. But it isn’t that noticeable and isn’t bad by any means. I was so disappointed with Origins’ All and Nothing, which seemed to change me into a whole different ethnicity by being a few shades darker than my natural skin, I was relieved that at least the Mineral Veil didn’t show up dark.

I don’t have oily skin, so I can’t attest to any oil-controlling properties this might have, but it’s a good setting powder without making me look cakey or dry. All and all, a good loose powder, but I personally prefer a truly translucent powder because any tinted powder seems to add color to my skin and/or tinted moisturizer.
