Clearly I have been loving Bloom products lately and I'm back with another product to review which is their mineral veil in the shade "Himalayan Mist". Similarly to the other Bloom products I have reviewed, this product has really impressed me with it's high quality formulation. which makes it so easy to apply. If your not familiar with how a "mineral veil" or "translucent powder" works, it's basically a fine powder which helps to set your liquid foundation and concealer to make sure it stays put all day. It's an alternative to using a pressed powder/powder foundation which can sometimes become cakey compared to a lightweight powder like this. Don't get me wrong, I love using my MAC Studio Fix to set my Chanel Mat Lumiere but if I'm aiming for a more natural look, I find that a fine translucent powder is a better option.
I think I have mentioned this but I adore the Bloom packaging! It's so sleek and practical in a lovely black and clear jar with clearly printed names and the colour of the product visible. This makes storing Bloom products really simple for easy accessibility when doing your makeup.

As for the actual product and how it is dispersed from the packaging, holes in the top allow small amounts of the product to make it above the top, making it easy to simply swirl your powder brush in.
Lets talk about how much and where from. This product retails for $35 and you can buy it from department stores such as Myer and David Jones as well as Target. 

The product itself looks like a light beige but the small amount you use and how it is spread out so thinly on your skin means that it is transparent. The swatch below is of the powder thickly applied to the skin without blending and above that it has been blended so as you can see it basically blends into your foundation like a second skin.
On a last note, if you haven't tried a translucent powder, I definitely recommend this Bloom one as it is high quality and great for starting out because it's so easy to use! Hope this was helpful, thanks for reading!

I've heard of Bloom but I don't have any of their products. I think the packaging is quite nice. I'll definitely add this to my ever-growing list of brands I need to try. Thankyou for your review.
