Tried & Tested | Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil

Wed, 16 Jan 2013


By Huda Heidi Kattan


I may LOOOVE shimmer, but nothing is attractive about a shiny face! Personally, my biggest issue is my super shiny T-Zone, and if I don’t control it, it gets so shiny you could see it from Mars! Sometimes it gets so bad, my pores start to show, my makeup looks greasy, it’s just a bad situation! I’ve been pretty obsessed with finding an oil-controling powder and I was really excited about trying the Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil, but I did have mixed feelings about it!

I really loooved the super light texture, and you can tell that even though it’s a pressed powder, it’s sooooo finely milled that it goes on like silk! I was impressed that my skin stayed completely matte for about 4 hours or so, but I did have to touch it up after that! The casing makes touch ups easy since you can fit it into literally any makeup bag! The only thing I didn’t like was the color and smell! The one I bought was Translucent, but it really gave my skin a slight chalky appearance. It wasn’t too bad, but you could kind of see it, which means I probably wouldn’t use it again! I also wasn’t crazy about the smell, it wasn’t bad, but it was soo strong! It kind of burned my nostrils, so I didn’t really fancy that!

They do have it available in a Tinted shade, so if you have darker skin, this would definitely be a better option! Comparing it to the Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder, I DEFINITELY prefer that one over this!

Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil available at Sephora

    Hey Huda, i was wondering if you had any tips on how to reduce pore size without make-up, as we all know make up over time can worsen pores. So is there anything to combat the issue straight at the core??
