What is the difference between the READY 'Touch Up Veil' and READY pressed Mineral Veil? Thanks!
Love the READY products, but not really interested in the previously introduced Mineral Veil READY product...thank you...

I'm not sure if this will help or not, but here is my understanding of the variation of veils according to the ones I searched for on this website:
1. Hydrating - Loose Mineral Veil - hydrating, cooling and brightening finish
2. Illuminating - Loose Mineral Veil - subtly brightening dewy finish
3. Tinted - Loose Mineral Veil - translucent soft finish with a hint of warm tint
4. Original - Loose Mineral Veil - translucent soft finish
Now...as far as the READY Mineral Veil goes, there's an Original and Tinted Mineral Veil in the pressed READY compact. Those were the first pressed mineral veils that came out from the READY line. I have the Tinted myself and use the Soft Focus Face Brush because you don't need much. Too much can make you look cakey. I have Golden Dark skin in the Original/Matte Foundation and Warm Deep (fall/winter)/Golden Deep (spring/summer) in the READY Foundation. So I REALLY have to make sure my face doesn't look cakey, ghostly and just wrong lol.
The NEW READY Mineral Veils that came out had a nifty name to it: Broad Spectrum. To my understanding, The Broad Spectrum mineral veil (which I only see in different shades in the Ready To Go Complexion Perfection Collection) comes in different shades to compliment your skin tone versus the original and tinted mineral veil which may be too cakey looking or not the right finishing powder for certain skin tones. The Touch Up Veil and READY pressed Mineral Veil are one in the same (to me). I think it just has different names to it. To make it interesting.
For example if you saw READY pressed mineral veil, the first thing you think about is the fact that it's not loose, messy powder, but it's pressed right? Well, some people don't know that this finishing powder can be used throughout the day to whisk away some oiliness and try to get your makeup looking back to normal after a hard day's work. Therefore, saying that the pressed mineral veil is a "Touch Up Veil" will give you the idea that you can touch up your look and not just use it once when you put on your face in the morning. If you carry the veil with you, you can LIGHTLY touch up through the day and give your veil more use than just a once a day application.
So all in all, READY Touch UP Veil IS the READY pressed mineral veil. If you see Mineral Veils in different hues of color, you will find them in the Ready To Go Complexion Perfection Collection. I haven't seen the different hue shades of the veil except in this collection and on Sephora.com. I just see Tan and Tinted for now and the other shades aren't in stock yet since this is brand new!
I hope this helps!!
