The Perfect Powder, On The Go!

This nifty little limited edition powder landed on my doorstep last week and I have to say I was instantly intrigued and impressed by the design. I’m not normally taken in by loose powders with built in brushes, as in my experience they can end up being a little messy. Having road tested this one for a week however, I can confirm that it seems to be the exception…
It’s a clever little disc that swivels to reveal an oval, flat brush that dispenses just the right amount of product automatically...

What’s more, it contains bareMinerals’ ‘Mineral Veil’ translucent powder, which has been a favourite of mine for ages. (This version is actually to celebrate it's 15th year of production!) I have tried both the loose and pressed versions, and while I really love them both, I think for some reason it’s slightly better as a loose powder, so this portable version of the original is great for me.
The perfect powder for handbag touch ups on the go. I’m seriously in love with it.

This limited edition powder will be available from April from bareMinerals shops, website and at Boots, priced at £22.

  1. Hey Fleur, do you happen to know if the powder is suitable for sensitive skin? I've tried BareMinerals foundations and found them a bit irritating, this however would be a handbag god send! I'm sick of dropping my pressed powders and seeing them shatter into a million pieces!
    Thanks :)

    1. Hey, I know you didn't ask me but I have sensitive skin so I have to be careful with what I use on my face. My mam has the loose powder and I tried a bit and it didn't break me out or irritate my skin at all! :) If you go into the counter they should give you a little sample pot I remember her getting one before!

    2. Hey, thanks for your reply :) I'll definitely have to ask at the counter the next time i'm in Boots or Debenhams :) xx

    3. Just wanted to chime in since some BareMinerals powders irritate my skin as well! The Mineral ingredient that usually causes irritation/breakouts is Bismuth Oxychloride. This is present in Bare Mineral's original powder foundation but NOT in their MATTE powder foundation OR in their Mineral Veils. Of course, it's always best to get a sample when possible to be on the safe side.

      I'm a huge fan of Mineral Veil as it gives your skin an air-brushed look and doesn't look cakey at all.

    4. Just a little thought to add ...

      The first few times I tried Bare Minerals I thought I was allergic to them! Cue bumpy, irritated unhappy skin. So they got shoved in the back of my make-up cupboard never to see the light of day, until, several years later I found them and decided to have another go. This time, with either a stroke of genius, or, and I suspect this is more likely, momentary dolallyness, I started smooshing the clean Bare Minerals brush on my face as opposed to the back of my hand, to test its softness.... Cue itchy, sore skin!
      So, I tried them with a synthetic brush ( instead of the natural hair one that came with it ) and they were fab - BM has been my foundation of choice ever since!

      Now I'm loving the ready foundation, but for veil, it has to be loose for me, so I'm looking forward to the release of this little thing! Having serious make-up envy that the lovely Fleur gets to try these goodies out! Lucky girl
      ;-)

  20. What? This is such a neat concept. I've tried self dispensing powder brushes before and never felt like it was the right amount, good to hear this one is a winner!
