Review: Bare Minerals Mineral Veil

Some of you may recall, I recently got some Bare Minerals products to try out from my boyfriend's mam. One of these was their Mineral Veil. It is described on their website as an award-winning mineral powder that "gives you a flawless finish that's too good to miss," and, I wholeheartedly support this statement.

The product is super duper light-weight and makes the skin look airbrushed and flawless like they claim. I have tried it over my NARS Sheer Glow foundation as well as over another powder product, my MAC MSFN, and neither of the times did I look powdery, ghostly pale or cakey. It just seemed to lock my base in place and settle into the skin, camouflaging any imperfections and highlighting all the areas we like highlighted; cheekbones, temples, nose bridge, Cupid's bow.

The powder is so fine and silky that it doesn't really qualify as a powder at all. I used it, as I said, with MSFN, and also with powder blush, bronzer and highlighter and there was no hint that there was any loose powder on the skin.

Because it does disappear and settle so beautifully, it was impossible to capture on camera- it's more of an all-over and natural improvement that it gives to the skin and to make-up as opposed to an obvious or stand-out addition to your make-up routine. I'll have to use this for a bit longer to be sure but, I would go so far as to say that this product could easily achieve Holy Grail status!

Have any of you tried this product? What do we think?!
