I share the pros and cons, compare it to the Idun Minerals Norrsken foundation as well as the Huda Beauty Fauxfilter Foundation in Milkshake and Cover FX Total Cover Cream in N0.

Idun Minerals Nordic Veil Foundation Review
Idun Minerals Nordic Veil Foundation is a medium to full coverage vegan and cruelty free foundation. I prefer to thin it out to make it more light to medium coverage by mixing it with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. On its own, the Nordic Veil foundation has a satin matte finish. When mixed with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer it’s more of a radiant matte finish. I still set it with the Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten in Porcelain, which gives me a bit of a glow. It looks very skinlike.
Idun Minerals Nordic Veil Foundation in Jorunn is a perfect match for my neck and chest. It covers up the pinky-red overtones on my face from my rosacea with ease. When you look at me wearing the foundation it’s seamless from my face to my neck to my chest, which I love! This is such a rarity for me with foundations.
The Nordic Veil Foundation formula doesn’t settle into fine lines or pores on my skin. It doesn’t emphasize dry patches, either. It’s very comfortable for me to wear on my dry sensitive skin with rosacea. If you’re someone who is drier than I am, you might like the Norrsken formula better. If you want more full coverage, you might like the Huda Beauty FauxFilter Foundation in Milkshake better. But if you’re looking for something just right, like me, you’ll love the Nordic Veil.
The one downside to the Nordic Veil foundation is the shade range. Idun Minerals is a Swedish company and they aren’t known for having the most diverse of shade ranges. They only have 9 shades.
I do love the price, not gonna lie. It’s only $28 for 1 oz. Huda Beauty FauxFilter is $40 for 1.18 oz, Cover FX Total Cover Cream is $42 for .35 oz, Kat Von D Lock-It is $35 for 1 oz, Urban Decay Naked Skin is $40 for 1 oz and Hourglass Vanish Stick is $46 for .25 oz. So compared to everything else, the Idun Minerals Nordic Veil Foundation feels like a steal for the price!
The Idun Minerals Nordic Veil Foundation has a faint clean scent that I find hard to describe. It might have the barest hint of apples, but whatever it is, it’s not added fragrance and the scent dissipates quickly. So if you hate stinky foundation, you’ll love this. It doesn’t have a lingering perfume like the Huda Beauty FauxFilter Foundation.
