Bare Minerals Balance & Boost Mineral Veil Duo (Limited Edition!)

Bare Minerals Balance & Boost Mineral Veil Duo-$29.50 (.21 oz’s)

I love Balance & Boost so much that I went back to the store after my initial purchase and got a backup. I have the original Mineral Veil from Bare Minerals and its good. But this…is great!

In case you haven’t used the BE Mineral Veil before it’s something that is used at the end of your makeup application. It’s like a setting powder and helps keep your makeup looking good for the day ahead. I use it to touch up as well because it helps my oily t-zone. You know my oily greasy t-zone? Ugggh.

More official info:

The limited-edition Balance & Boost Mineral Veil® finishing powder imparts a quiet boost of color to counteract dull skin, while gently absorbing oil and minimizing the look of fine lines and pores for a fresh, flawless look all day. With a mirrored compact and Buff & Go Brush that locks securely closed, it’s the perfect travel partner for fast, on-the-go touch-ups.

Features and benefits:
- Infused with a subtle apricot tint.
- Formulated without parabens, binders, fillers or harsh chemicals.

This duo is a great fit for someone thats on the go. I love the container that the powder is in. It’s easy to transport in your makeup bag and you have control over the powder inside the container so that it doesn’t get all over the place. I love the kabuki like brush that comes with the powder. It’s dense and with just a few flicks you can dust your face quickly with the mineral veil. And last but not least the color…it’s a perfect fit for my skin tone. Dead on perfect blends right in kind of fit. Genius. I might need a third one it’s just that good.

I picked this up at Nordstrom. Check for this before its gone from the stores. I wish it wasn’t limited edition but it is!

    So this is Bare Minerals version of Laura Geller’s “Balance & Brighten”? Have you tried Laura Geller’s version and if yes, how does it compare? I’m curious how much better the Bare Minerals one might be.

      Laura Geller’s Balance and Brighten (also what made Me look into this one), is more a powder foundation that sort of neutralizes your complexion. I tend toward reddish “ruddy” complexion, so it covers and knocks that out for a neutral canvas to then apply my blush. I guess LG would also neutralize a yellow-y “sallow” complexion, but since I’m the opposite, I couldn’t say. As for this Bare Minerals Balance and Boost stuff, I have a feeling it does not provide any neutralizing effect, but probably “boosts” a dull or colorless complexion if you haven’t gotten any sun or just want a punch of color overall, maybe like a bronzer, but not as extreme. By the way, I bought Laura’s Ethereal Rose, which sounds like it does the same as this Balance and Boost, but it just made my face look red again, which I’d just gotten through neutralizing! Oh well, it’s so fun to try out new stuff, and I cannot be reformed!

    I love this powder. I agree its a great fit for darker skin, I feel like I’m glowing from within. All of your reviews have turned me into a BE junkie! HAHA I just ordered the Simply Irresistable Kit and can’t wait to try it out!

    Hmmmm, I keep seeing this around. Is it great for all skin tone? It looks so finely milled I couldn’t tell if it was a cream or powder. :O) I may have to break down.

      I heard back from a very fair subscriber on youtube and when she tried it after i showed it in october she said it was too pigmented for her fair skin. I’d try it first if possible at the counter.

    I hate reading your blog, because I want everything! I just stopped by Ulta on my way home from work and tried this out. It is AMAZING!! Thank you so much! I saw it in a recent haul or favorites of yours and thanks for reviewing it. I might go get a backup :) I wish they would make this permanent though!

      I’m so glad you checked it out! I think it should be permanent because it just makes me look healthier and gives off such a great glow! Get a backup just in case it’s a while before it comes back!
