I have only used this powder a few times. I like the way it looks on my skin, and it does make my skin look pretty flawless. The packaging isn't the best and a lot of powder comes to the top, making it hard to put on your brush. I have found that every time I applied the powder, I would feel a heavy, indescribable feeling in my lungs. I guess I didn't really think anything of it, seeing as it only lasted about an hour. Now, reading these reviews and knowing that it is made out of pure silica, I don't think it's worth the hazard, at all. I'll wait until it's proven safe, then I would reconsider buying it again.

This is a very nice, finely milled powder. It provides a nice matte finish and sets makeup. However, if you already have a loose powder that you like, then this isn't a must have. It's a translucent loose powder that is comparable to Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, NYC, etc. It was a good buy and will last long time. If you need a powder then check this out, otherwise this isn't going to perform any differently than what you already have.

wahhhhh. Best. Powder. Ever. I use this over MUFE's HD foundation...flawless. I have suuuper oily-combination skin but this powder makes it look amaaazing. I've read a couple of reviews here complaining about a 'white mask' in photos...I haven't got this, but then I use just an tiny tiny amount. THe packaging kinda sucks, no way to cover the holes, so that the cap doesn't get filled while traveling :// Also, try not to breathe in while powdering your face...silica! Overall, I love it. Have already re-bought, and unless MUFE mess with the formula I don't see myself buying any other powder. touchwood.Plus, for someone with muy sensitive skin, no breakouts at all. :) try a sample!

This powder is really good. I haven't worn it for photos as I know that only a matte finish "normal" powder would work for that. But, for everyday use, this stuff is great. It helps to camoflage imperfections and is very lightweight. It lasts for most of the day too. My skin is back to being combination rather than just dry. I would have to touch up the t-zone if I were going out to dinner or something at night. I agree with a previous poster in that you need to be careful not to breath in the powder particles, not just of this powder but any powder. It's just not healthy. Hold your breath while you dust your face and then step away to let the dust settle. All in all, this is a great powder for aging skin. I'm 35 and am showing some lines, old scars, and so forth.

THIS POWDER IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!As a makeup artist my makeup has to be perfect on camera. This powder reflects light and comes out white and weird on photos. it's a disaster!!!! so don't use it when you know you will take pics (brides etc...)BUT ...nonetheless it's A PHENOMENAL POWDER for daytime!!My suggestion (especially for oily and combination skin) is to set your liguid foundation and then top offyour face with this powder...it gives you a smooth fresh non-powdery flawless face....Excellent for those who have enlarged pores, imperfections and fine lines...

I really like this powder, although I find it is not that great at controlling oil-I still need to blot midway through the day. However, it looks and feels nice on my skin. I bought the set with the kabuki brush, and I don't like the brush-it sheds. I use a kabuki I got at CVS instead and that works fine.

I agree with one of the reviewers before that this powder definitely leaves a white masky look. I was in a wedding and realized after viewing the pictures that I looked chalky and washed-out. None of my other makeup looked like I had even applied it!! UGH I was PO'd to say the least.

Read the review below. Girls I am not going to advertise against silica, enjoy if you like it. Please HOLD your breath while applying silica or any other loose powders. After you are finished, run to another room and get some fresh fume-free air. As for the powder, I don't like it, it's itchy, irritating and drying (not mattifying), feels heavy and suffocating.

My first loose powder was Laura Mercier's Translucent Powder. It was good but it didn't seem to cut it especially during the summer (I have combination-oily skin). So I decided to get HD High Definition Loose Powder. The good thing is that it is extremely finely milled as some other reviewers have mentioned. It is probably one of the most finely milled powders I've ever encountered. As a result, it blends so nicely onto the skin. However, this "nice finish" seems to only work on certain types of foundation in my opinion. It works great on mineral foundation and actually controls the shine. However, on my liquid foundation, it either doesn't keep the oils at bay or it accentuates lines or pores on my face. I'm also giving it a 2 because for me, it cannot be reapplied throughout the day (it'll creep into fine lines and give a white cast). Also, the powder seems to sometimes get "trapped" between the very small fine facial hairs (like the very fine ones that you would never really see)...and this sometimes contributes to the appearance of a white mask (since it wasn't able to go into the skin). Lastly, the BIGGEST problem I have with this powder is the FUMES. It might not bug some people but for safety health reasons, I wouldn't suggest people buy this. The fumes are really bad for me. When I apply this powder with a brush, the fumes will sometimes get into my nose (even if it's just in the air) and it makes me sneeze, cough, clogs my nose (makes it difficult to breathe sometimes). And I'm sure this isn't a good thing. So just a heads up girls!

This is by far the best product ever..... everyone needs this in their makeup box..... most do not know but putting this over ur foundation and eyeshadow actually waterproofs it.... i tested it out using Benefit Shelaq and the hd power and shelaq actually took off some on the foundation, but where i put the high def on its stay perfectly in place..... even while swimming
