Phrases Chosen: moisturizing, silky, smells good
I received my Bare Minerals, my mineral veil, bare skin foundation, etc. So I had to try it ALL. I applied my foundation (LOVE), then I applied my mineral veil (more love), then I washed my face with Bare Minerals face wash, then I applied this moisturizer and while I was putting it on, I thought it was a bit heavy. I have been searching for something for the dry patches that appeared on my face as soon as I turned 60! I knew this brand would have what I needed because I have never been unhappy with anything I have purchased from Bare Minerals. I just had to bite the bullet and go ahead and pay what I had to. I'm not rich, but I believe that you get what you pay for. I have a LOT of different brands of moisturizer in my bathroom! I applied this stuff, went about my day, and sat down to have a coffee. I felt my face and I am SOOO HAPPY!! My face feels like SILK! I thought it was going to be heavy and sort of greasy but it isn't. At first it feels heavy, then it just seems to melt into my skin. Like my skin is drinking it up. I'm going to use it day AND night! Couldn't be more happy!!

Phrases Chosen: very cool, dispenses perfect amount, love the container, love mineral veil
I ALWAYS love mineral veil in ANY container! I happen to very much like this one. It dispenses JUST the right amount for me. I haven't had ANY problem with it, and who knows if I will in time, but for now, I like this container better than the regular jar. I also like the mirror in the lid. Very useful for me! I might have to buy more of them before they go away forever!

Phrases Chosen: fabulous, silky, covers, economical
NEVER have I EVER used a liquid foundation like THIS one! It takes SO LITTLE to cover my whole face. It even covered the redness around my nose and on my chin. It evened out my skin tone, and made my face look so good! I had a sample that I thought was as close to my skin as possible, but I'm so happy I got to try it first because it's just a tad too light. I am 60 and I think I've been using the wrong shades all these years. Most of my life I haven't used much foundation, but all of a sudden, I NEED it! I love THIS Bare Skin because it covers what I want to cover without using a heavy full coverage foundation. That was going to be the NEXT step. I have been using BB cream and tinted moisturizer but I need more coverage, and who knew that a LIGHTER liquid could cover so well!! And can I say that I would love to hug the person who invented this foundation brush! I LOVE it! I'm gushing, I know, but I have bought MANY different kinds of face makeup trying to find what this ONE single product has done. Not only am I happy with it, I'm SO happy that ONE bottle will last me a LONG time! Thank you,Bare Essentuals!!

I LOVE this stuff! If I don't feel like putting on a whole "face", I just use this and it looks like I DID put on a whole face! Not only that I am sure that it improves the texture of ones' skin

I shake vigorously,& squeeze the bottle as hard as possible, but nothing comes out.
Not until I shake the bottle does the foundation come out, but then it goes everywhere.I'm wasting most of my foundation
I noticed that I should NEVER shake the container until I take the LID OFF! If you shake BEFORE you take it off, it DOES go all over in the lid. So, Take the lid off, put your finger over the top and then shake well. THEN put a drop on your brush! I sure wish there had been directions for this, because I wasted a bunch of it by shaking the bottle with the lid on. GOOD LUCK!

Why is BE now espousing that additional fluids and chemicals are better than the existing product?
Having used Bare Minerals for over ten years and truly believing that less is better [no liquids, silicone, glycerin, other chemicals, etc.], and the skin to prove it, why is BE now espousing that added chemicals [natural or not] are somehow better for my skin? I really don't know who or what to trust at this point.
Oh my gosh, you have to try this! It is SO light and SO silky and I love it! I'm 60 and I have skin that needs correcting and this does it. You will need so very little of it and it will last. As far as the product, this has minerals in it and NOT a long list of unknowns. Honestly it feels like velvet on your face! I used to use the bare minerals powder and it's just a little too dry for me now. THIS was MY answer for that! Try it, You will LOVE it!

Mineral Veil (size: large)
 
i recently bought medium beige matte foundation. i want to buy finishing powder. which one should i buy
is there any face powder available that i can apply without putting foundation.
absolutely use mineral veil! It's the best! I guess with your medium beige you would want medium shade mineral veil.
