15th Anniversary Mineral VeilÂ® Finishing Powder 8g
I have been using Bare Minerals for over a year now and I love it. I have never had any problems with their products until I purchased this. I bought it because the idea of it was great as I often bring my pot of Mineral veil with me in my hand bag for touch ups throughout the day. I was excited to use it but no matter how much I tried, it was impossible to get the powder out! I ended up having to buy another normal pot of the mineral veil and now I just use this as another make up brush. I would NOT recommend this product. Save yourself the hassle and just buy the pot of veil and use a separate brush.
What were they thinking?!
I love mineral veil. It is a really good finishing powder. I bought this because it looked useful to carry in my bag for touch ups throughout the day. It is good for handbags. No product leaks out at all. That's the problem. At some point you want to use it. All that happens is the powder remains in the container and you just brush away any make up you have applied which then sticks to and therefore, dirties the brush. Did I mention the brush cannot be washed? and that the container is not refillable?
I haven't had any luck with their brush and powder combos. I have the twist up brush which you can refill with foundation. Can't get any out of that either. Clearly the product blocks the too small holes in the brush.
A waste of money
I'm a huge bare minerals fan and now pretty much all my make up is bare minerals. However, this product is a total waste of money and its very disappointing that they have produced such a poor product. Its impossible to get the powder out. Really bare minerals should recall this product or at least offer loyal customers an exchange of the original mineral veil which worked just fine. I'm going to have to try break it and put the powder into the orignal type pot.
Lovely idea, if only you could get the powder out
I purchased this item as the packaging appealed. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to get any powder out and after having it a fortnight I prised it open out of frustration and put the contents into an old container. The powder itself is excellent and I would highly recommend it, just avoid purchasing it in this format.
Lovely idea/looks great, doesnt deliver
I can't imagine my make up bag with no mineral veil in it, so when i saw this limited edition, i was exited, as the container looks so cute and thought it would be so handy with the brush.. how wrong was i.. its a struggle to get any product out.. by the time i manage to get any product out (shaking, tapping, etc) and trying to apply on my face, the make up is ruined by the brush.. now im really considering breaking up the case (trying to figure out the safest way) to pore it in the original old container, so i could use it to the full benefit.. My advice? stick to the original package!!!
This is such a good idea but, unfortunately, I personally find hardly any powder comes out (and yes I have removed the stoppers).
Shame as it is such a great handbag accessory.
