I have been in the market for a really sheer but effective setting powder,
when I mentioned my plight to a friend she turned around and gifted me with
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil setting powder complete with a dinky little brush.

The packaging of all Bare Minerals products live up to the namesake with minimal packaging,
a clear jar with a black lid and sifter, easy to use and pleasing on the eye.
As it is plastic you can travel with it without worry!
The brush is well made with a nice sized head that makes light work of buffing into the face.
The bristles are soft and retain their shape after washing with no shedding or splaying.
I found the brush to work really well with the Mineral Veil powder
and remind me of the old brushes Avon used to do before they changed them to all black!

Bare Minerals Mineral Veil comes in four different shades/purposes I have the Original formula
which is translucent so it is suitable for all skin colours as it buffs away to a transparent finish.

"Make the most of your makeup with Mineral Veil, 
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 above description sums the powder up perfectly.
It buffs into the skin to set the make-up but has an airbrush quality that is just beautiful,
it doesn't settle into fine lines or enlarged pores and absorbs all the excess oil on my t-zone
with such ease and keeps it at bay for a good 6 hours.
My favourite aspect is that it truly is weightless you can not feel this at all on the skin
which is always an important factor when it comes to anything I wear on my face.
Undoubtedly this does all it claims to and keeps my make-up in place for around 6 hours
before signs of oiliness decide to rear their oily heads!

Overall I think this will be my to go to warm weather setting powder
and I am now intrigued by the Bare Minerals products, I may purchase a foundation next!
