Pros: dissapointing
This product is an awesome concealer, which is the only reason I will ever buy it again, and that I gave it two hearts. It minimizes acne a little bit on my forehead, but acne on my cheeks is not looking any better at all, in fact it may be getting worse! I have been using this product for less than two weeks so I am willing to give it a little while longer to take affect. (I know how resilient acne is). I am also a little disappointed at the size of the product, it's tiny! I'm not really sure if it's worth what it costs...

Pros: good
This products feels great on my skin (like all BE products) and I have found that it makes my pores look smaller. But, my main problem is shine, and it does nothing against it. I can use blotting sheets and then put more mineral veil on, it works as a great refresher, but it doesn't really prevent the oil from appearing.

Pros: pretty good
This foundation feels so good putting it on, and for about 30-45 mins after that. This is when my face starts to get shiny, I've found that this product doesn't help with oil control at all, so it is better to go with the original foundation, as it is less expensive. However, I really don't use much foundation when I put it on, a very small amount; the first time I wore it, it turned my face orange, and I picked a shade that was lighter than my skin. I will buy this foundation again, in matte, just in a lighter shade. I suggest going a few shades lighter than your actual skin tone.

Questions
 
lightly resurfaces skin in one easy step
 
Does anybody notice their skin being drier as a result of this product?
I have oily skin but I use dermatologist prescribed acne medication. It works great but really dries out my skin, I have to put tons of lotion on already.

What color is the product?? Is it too dark for fair skin if used under makeup?? I have very sensitive, fair skin. Does it dry out the skin ??
How can I find out what shade it is?
This product is very very light, I have not found that it dries out skin, however results are different for every person.

Do you wear the Blemish Therapy with the Bare Minerals make up or do you just wear it at night after you have washed your face?
I was wondering if it also works as a concealer or is it just a product used to help reduce blemishs? Can it be worn with your make up? And if so do you apply it first then your make up? Please help.
you want it as close to your skin as it can get. It can be worn day and night, and should be worn under your makeup. I have found that it works great as a concealer, better than it works at reducing acne.

Is this product worth buying and does it work well with the Matte Foundation?
I was just wondering, and considering after all of the reviews if i should try it. I saw the price: $18. Is it worth trying? I have the SPF 15 Matte Medium Beige Foundation; about to buy more, and wondering if I should try it and see if it would look good under the matte. Is it also good for oily skin and make it less oily while working with my acne. I also have seen noticeable changes in my skin while using bareMinerals Matte foundation. So I was wondering if it was REALLY worth buying.
It depends on your skin. I have found that if one BE product works for your skin, then usually most of the other products will work for your skin. This product does help get rid f acne a tiny bit, but I feel that it functions better as a concealer. It is also a very light product, I have the golden fair foundation and it is light on my skin. It does not reduce oil for me.

Is there a specific way to put on any mineral veil?
i've been checking the "get the look" sections and it always says to put on the mineral veil last. i've done this several times but for some reason i think it takes off or smudges whatever i have already on (eyeshadow, foundation, all over colors). what i want to know is if anyone else puts on the mineral veil after foundation and put on anything else just right on top.
I usually put the mineral veil on before and after foundation, if it is put on before then it helps absorb oil. I also don't put on my eye shadow or eyeliner until after foundation and mineral veil. I do concealer touch-ups very last, I have never sen my mineral veil smudging my other make-up

What is the best brush to use for applying the mineral veil.
I like the mineral veil, what is the best brush to use with this product?
Either the flawless face brush, or the full flawless face brush it you want more coverage. I have not tried using the hydrate and brighten brush, but I'm sure it works as long as you want light coverage.

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.
The original mineral veil. It doesn't affect the color of your foundation at all, and looks great with a lot of different skin tones.

I bought this foundation in light and i found its a bit darker for my skintone. So, do you think what color should be a perfect match for me ?
Would it be ok if i use fairly medium or fairlt light ?
The exact same thing happened to me. I suggest going for golden fair, or even fair if it is way to dark on you. I am going to go to a BE boutique and try some different shades, but I will probably end up buying golden fair.
