Review: yourMinerals Sweden Transparent Veil

Today’s review is on a product I received in my July Boxycharm.

I have never heard of yourMinerals before. One of the biggest reasons I adore subscription services is the fact that they introduce me to new brands and products.

Price:

This is available in three different sizes.

  • Small=$21
  • Medium=$26 (this is the size I have)
  • Large=$29

Description:

Transparent Veil is a transparent fixing powder for the foundation that settles like a soft transparent veil over skin. The ultralight silk texture gives a nice smooth surface by minimizing fine lines and pores. The skin is kept matte and the makeup will perfectly stay all day. Apply over your foundation for a flawless performance. For you who quickly gets a blank/shiny face, this Transparent Veil is the perfect tool!

This came at the perfect time as I am almost done with my current translucent powder.

Generally I’m not a huge fan of loose powders since they tend to be messy.  As long as I use this while over the sink, I can avoid powder getting all over my counter and floor!

This came protected as you can see in the picture below.  It has a sifter which the product comes out of. 

This powder is so silky soft!  I also love that it doesn’t look chalky on my skin.  It blends seamlessly and disappears wherever applied.

I definitely agree that this minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores.  I love that it didn’t settle into my fine lines/wrinkles.  I’ve had this issue with so many other loose powders.

It provides a matte finish and is great for setting makeup.  It also works really well to combat shine.  You really only need a small amount.

I absolutely love this product.

That being said….my skin does not!  😦

I noticed my skin starting to itch and develop irritation spots soon after application. As soon as I stopped using it, my skin cleared right up.

I’m not disappointed because I really thought this powder was fantastic.

I’ve already given this powder to my best friend and she is raving about how fantastic it is!

I definitely give it an A+ and am just disappointed that my skin didn’t respond well to it.

Have you tried this product out?  What did you think of it?

Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!

xoxo Lizzie♥

    I thought this one was all right. It kind of made my face itch too. However, I have been loving the City Color Cosmetics one that I got from Ipsy and that one works even better! 🙂

    1. Sorry to hear it didn’t work out for you either. I ended up giving it to my friend and she had no skin irritation so it works great for her! I didn’t even know city color made powder! Good to know!

        I think you can buy it online on their website. I don’t know of any stores that would sell it but I could be wrong. 🙂
