Rated 4 out of 5 by amers Perfecting Veil
I like using this product to "finish" my make up over the liquid foundation. The only "con" I have experienced is that the compact breaks after only a few usages. I am using my second one and the same thing has happened : the hinge breaks making it difficult to put all back together with the magnet in the hole, etc. Also the applicator makes it difficult to get all the make-up out. I end up with product around the edges that I can't get out because it flakes and crumbles around the edges. I think a different package would make this better. I love the product itself!
Rated 4 out of 5 by dakota1gal Great finish and wear; runs out quickly
This runs out much more quickly than the loose powder, however, the finish effect is superb. I still use the mineral veil on top of this compact powder because of my excessively oil skin. I was surprised at how much lighter this powder plus the liquid makeup feels. Very difficult, if not impossible, to use all of the product in the compact - unlike the loose powder where I can use every drop.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LeeLee2 Irritating for Sensitive Skin
I really wanted this to be my forever finishing powder but it irritated and inflamed my nearly flawless sensitive skin. After trying it for a week I fell in love and stocked up, buying extra so I would not run out. BIG MISTAKE. By week two, I had one or two small white heads and inflamed pores and just figured it was a fluke. By week four, I had 4-6 white heads in different areas of my face, easily hidden with makeup. By week six my entire forehead was irritated inflamed and itchy. Forgetting what had changed in my routine, I traced back what changed and realized it was this powder. I then spent a week researching each ingredient. Silica is the first ingredient, which is known to clog pores, so I STOPPED this immediately and my face cleared up in a couple of days. Bummed that I wasted money as I still have unopened containers of this stuff, but glad that i figured it out before it ruined my skin for good!

The Bareskin Perfecting Finishing Veil gives light coverage and goes well with Complexion Rescue, Bareskin Concealer and Pop of Passion Natural Cream Blush in giving you a flawless finish without giving the appearance of full make up. I use it on my T Zone only as I wish to have a dewy glow to rest of my skin to create a more youthful appearance. Will re-purchase again
Rated 1 out of 5 by Oohgirl Used to love but not anymore
I'm not sure what happened but this product formulation has to been changed. Now when applied over your foundation it's awfully dark. Moved away from it now. Shame because I used to love your products. So sorry.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadaboutperfectingveil Too Dark
I bought this through the bare minerals club get started kit so my color was chosen for me according to my foundation color choice. When I opened this I was positive I had accidentally been given the wrong color. I looked on the website though and realized "light to medium" is the lightest available.
I am fairly light in in original and matte loose powder foundation, bare shell in serum foundation, clearly pearl in blemish remedy foundation, and vanilla in the complexion rescue.
The foundation and concealer colors that I received in the kit were the perfect colors, but this perfecting veil in light to medium is so many shades too dark for me. This should definitely be a medium foundation. Please make a lighter skin specific perfecting veil. I love the texture but absolutely cannot wear this!
Rated 4 out of 5 by BMJunkie if you thought this as the same as Mineral Veil............
I was skeptical, thought it was just Mineral veil in Ready formula, but No, its is very finely milled and does work perfectly with my bareSkin collection. For me, if I need something quick, I apply the bareSkin Serum Concealer all over my face and this over the top and I'm ready. I think it packs a punch better than my Mineral Veil as it seems so finely milled. The only reason for 4 and not 5 hearts, is that I don't like using the pad it comes with (collectors of Oils and bacteria) so use brushes. No matter which I use there is a lot of fall out, but I've hit pan and will be buying more so its no deal breaker for me.

I have to agree with some of the previous reviews, unfortunately the light to medium shade is far too dark for pale skin, it looks orange on me! There needs to be a shade for fair/porcelain skin, I'm dissappointed that I can't use this product :(
Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurenJoanna Amazing finish!
I have just used this over my new bare minerals foundation and it sets it perfectly. I have naturally quite oily skin and it does a great job of combatting my shiny areas! It goes on really easily and a little goes a long way. Will definitely be keeping this as a make-up bag essential!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bookishsnob Way too dark :(
I don't have pale skin by any means, but the light to medium is WAY too dark. Honestly, it should be medium and there should be a much lighter color. I went back to using the original mineral veil with my bareskin foundation.
