It’s hard to believe that Bare Minerals’ much-loved Mineral Veil finishing powder is fifteen years old. For fifteen years we’ve all loved the translucent finishing touch of award-winning powder, providing a great result on all skin types. Not only does the powder absorb excess oil and help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and pores, but provides the skin with a touch of softness and light to ensure we’re looking super healthy. As a lover of a powdered finish, especially as it sets makeup in place and removes any unsightly shininess, this is one product I do really like. However, the traditional ‘open pot’ format made it extremely difficult to use on the go or touch-up throughout the day. In celebration of this birthday milestone, Bare Minerals are launching a limited edition portable version that’s perfect for popping in your handbag.
The twistable pot includes a ‘flow through’ brush which allows the Mineral Veil to subtly apply directly onto the skin, with no mess or fuss. It’s so handy and a genius idea – I’m amazed nobody has thought of this before! It’s so much better than a usual compact and puff/brush, as the product can be applied to the specific area without the need for two hands; you don’t even have to look in a mirror! What’s even better is this gadget is actually refillable too, meaning you can continue to enjoy using your favourite product in the most practical way. Once it runs out, why not even pop in your favourite bronzing powder so you’re ready for summer? Once this launches in April, I’m tempted to stock up just so I can add all my highlighters, bronzers and powders into these genius little applicators.
The Limited Edition Mineral Veil launches in April priced £22.00.
