For my skin texture, a finishing powder is pretty much always needed to complete my makeup looks. At times, when my skin is a bit dry, I reach for a light translucent powder. But when my skin is a bit oilier (during spring and summer), I’ve noticed that a pressed powder locks things in place better. Since it’s that time of year, I decided to find a new pressed powder to try, and I ended up getting the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Perfecting Veil. This powder costs $27 at Sephora and similar retailers.
I’ve always had good luck with the Bare Minerals brand, which is why I wanted to try another of their products. However, I was a bit concerned that the shade range is limited for this product. There are only four shades, and the lightest one offered is called, “Light/Medium.” My skin tone is closer to Fair/Light and I’ve never been close to Medium in my whole life, so I wasn’t sure if this one would even work for me. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised that it is the perfect shade and blends in so well with my existing foundations.
I’ve been so impressed by how well this powder works. It keeps oil at bay for the entire day. I very rarely feel the need to touch up my makeup in the bathroom at work because this powder definitely helps extend the wear of my foundation and concealer too. In fact, I’ll often go a whole 8+ hour work day without touching up anything but my lipstick. I love how this powder locks everything in place without looking heavy or cakey. It doesn’t seem to settle into any lines or pores, and it creates this great, smooth skin surface.
Overall, I’ve been so pleased with this product. It performs well, looks great on the skin, and seems to blur my imperfections. The moment I start hitting pan on this product, I’m for sure going to buy a backup. This is one of the best pressed powders I’ve ever tried, and I highly recommend it!
