So, I used to do a lot of full face makeovers for clients with almost all of the B.E. minerals. Personally, my skin was too dry for the products, regardless of whether it was the loose foundation, mineral veil, or loose radiants. Not only that, I never felt like it was enough coverage for my skin. But I can say this, it worked wonders for many people of many different skin types & skin colors. Especially people with pale complexions, rosacea/redness, or any skin concerns/sensitivities. The most common complaints I've heard or had with the loose minerals mainly with the loose minerals being super messy, which can be especially discouraging when there was an accidental spill, such as dropping the container whether the lid was on or off, because 1 way or another, there would end up being a huge cloud of minerals wafting, plus it was always sad to see so much product wasted if it was dropped when the lid was off. But, on the upside, the product itself does work well & many people consider the mineral veil their secret weapon or perfect finishing touch to their makeup routine, which is why it's been a top seller in the makeup industry for over a decade. Plus, you can't go wrong with all natural minerals in a cosmetic product.

I have mixed feelings about this product it does have sparkles in it but if you have dry skin it’s going to emphasis it. It doesn’t work well in my experience with liquid foundation but I’m going to keep trying. And with my Revlon concealer  it kind of cakes up in my fine lines I’m not sure if it’s the concealer or this powder because it works well with the Bare Minerals foundation it doesn’t work well with dryness. This is just my experience with this product it might be different for you

I was previously using a Tarte product to set my concealer and liquid foundation but received a sample of this in my Sephora play box. I loved it so much I went and bought the biggest size they sell it in! It doesn’t leave even a hint of a white cast and leaves my makeup looking FLAWLESS and skin smooth as ever. It last all day and is an overall great product. I also have tried the RCMA powder the beauty bloggers are crazy about and while that’s much more economical, the product doesn’t compare. I love this product and it’s inspired me to try other bare minerals products!

I always use this with the bare minerals original foundation just because I always have and it’s what they suggest. However I’ve worn the foundation without it and don’t notice a huge difference. I don’t know that it actually helps set your makeup. It’s my understanding it is more meant to act as a smoothing veil/sheen over the skin rather than help
Makeup set and stay on. I don’t think it’s necessary but it helps when you want to buff out your makeup and blend together concealer, foundation and blush so it looks natural.

I love BM products.
This does help with shine and setting makeup.

But I find several of the mineral veil products too ashy or powdery looking on my skin.

The moisturizing version doesn’t feel much different to me than the original.

With all the cons stated above, the product does what it’s supposed to (with a little post application effort).

For my skin I have to take my damp beauty blender and kind of push the product into the skin. I have also applied with a brush then sprayed a moisturizing spray.

Review for: Illuminating more...
I bought it for my wedding (because who doesn't want to be illuminated on their wedding day) and it was pretty much perfect for me. I can't wear really heavy makeup and so this combined with a BB cream gave me a great glow and made me feel absolutely beautiful. My only qualm is that if I wear it all over my face on a regular basis, it looks a little like I'm just wearing shimmer. So to combat that I typically just wear it as a very light highlight and it works for me!

This powder will set cream makeup and that's about it. It doesn't particularly blur pores or set nicely. It isn't super long lasting either. I will say that the shade selection is decent. The illuminating powder is questionable because it has a ton of chunky glitter in it and I can't imagine someone setting their face with it. It's a very middle of the road powder and you would be better off trying Coty or even Elf for much cheaper.

I have used this along with the original foundation for over 15 years. It sets your finished look. Helps cover excess shine and oils. It he
gives my face an airbrushed look. I really like it during the hot humid days where I live. It helps freshen up your foundation. You can apply it numerous times throughout the day. The key to bare minerals is application. Always dip brush, tap and shake off excess, and buff on in circular motions.

I use this primarily as a setting powder once I am finished applying my make up. It goes on translucent and applies smoothly and easily.

I love how long this product lasts, as a little of it does really go a long way. This should be kept in mind by anyone hesitant of trying this product due to its price.

As far as cosmetics for sensitive skin go, bareMinerals has other brands and product lines beat, in my book. I suffer from sensitive, dry, red skin as well as eczema. Once I first discovered bareMinerals I stuck with them and have continued to do so for the last 16 years. Based on my experience, I highly recommend this product to others.
