Bare Minerals Mineral Veil In Original | Review

Meet 'airbrush' in a pot, that is what I like to call it ^^
I actually received this in the starter kit and I decided to take it out of my make up stash so that I could admire and talk about this gem of a product.

Product description:

For the ultimate, translucent "finishing touch" to your makeup, our bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder infuses skin with softness and light, giving you the look of airbrushed perfection.
Make the most of your makeup with Mineral Veil® finishing powder, a see-through but spectacular finale for any kind of complexion. Minimising lines, absorbing oils, and softening your complexion, it gives you a flawless finish that's too good to miss. And best of all, it's utterly weightless. Just a bare veil of minerals that lock makeup in place and give your skin airbrushed perfection.
The product description really is on point, I couldn't of described it better myself.
The sturdy plastic jar is great for on the go and it even has a sifter so that you can control the amount of product that you want to use.
This is available in four shades/types, The original shade that I have is suited for all skin tones because it buffs into a transparent finish.
This buffs perfectly to leave the skin looking literally airbrushed, my make up was also kept looking 'freshly put on' for a couple of hours since it kept the oiliness away.
This does not settle into any fine lines nor does it settle onto any large pores.
It is such a feather light powder that you can not feel on your face which is such a plus!
This is one product that I have been enjoying recently and I am sure that I will love this even more in the warmer months <3
So if you are looking for a light and natural looking translucent powder that helps control shine, oil and doesn't make you look 'ghostly' then definitely check this out!

  4. Love this too it's my summer foundation. My only problem is that the BM brushes shed alot but they give me the best airbrush affect and I can totally tell the difference in coverage between these brushes and using a Real Techniques buffing brush... can you or anyone tell me what brushes I should use please? I'm thinking maybe MAC? Xx

  5. Wow this sounds amazing! I've never tried Bare Minerals but their powders seem to be very well-loved! Great review! :) x
