I tried the Supreme Smoothing Powder (Golden) and I was blown away! The powder feels soooooo luxuriously soothing and almost cool to the touch when applied on my face. I've never gotten such a sensation with other finishing powder before. It feels like magic!
And it's sooo affordable for such a wonderful smooth finish. I love it to bits! To top it off, Franchesca is a very nice lady! Thumbs up! :D

This is for awG's Heavenly Rice Veil in Light/Medium Tint(not the Supreme Smoothing powder). There isn't a way i can add Heavenly Rice Veil to the title when i typed in Adorned with Grace. It's like there's a preset to the review title.
Anyway, back to this amazing powder HRV. I've been wanting to review this for yonks. i first used this back in Nov 2007 and have been loving it since.Have used it in conjunction with Supreme Smoothing Powder(SSP)last year but i still love this baby more. Though a tad chalkier than SSP, it always leaves a soft matte glow that only my TLeclerc can match.Oil cntrl is superb: When the oil breaks thru, my face still manages to look soft-sheeny-fresh,and not patchy-oily-gross per se. Just a few dabs with facial tissue and i'm ready to go - there's no need to do touch-ups. If i happen to be super oily during that time of the month, i'd just blot, then use Franchesca's method of lightly pressing the powder into my face with the attached puff, and i'd instantly look ready to go.
For reference, I'm EDM Olive Fair, Meow's Frisky Abysinnian(when i've not been under the sun). HRV just disappears into my face and blends like a dream, leaving nary a white cast. when i'm tanned/if there's any flash photography involved, i prefer using my SSP in Golden as it provides more color.
Both powders (SSP and HRV) haven't broken me out yet.Thanks Franchesca for yet another wonderful product:-)

adorned with Grace is a mmu etailer that specializes in Asian skintones. That said, I know that many non-Asians with olive, yellow and/or peachy skintones love this brand as well!
I've used all of the Supreme Smoothing Powders colors: Untinted, Golden, Peach & Neutral. They are all fabulous & even the colored ones are sheer enough to work on my medium, mostly olive, some yellow & peachy skintone. Untinted is wonderful as well.
Like the previous poster stated, this product is the affordable answer to MUFE's HD silica powder. It works beautifully in setting my oily, acne prone skin (which is now sensitive too, as I am on Retin-A Micro long term for cystic acne). It seems to almost blur my fine lines & pitted acne scars (from cystic acne in my teens). It keeps my oily skin at bay, especially well when combined with using Fyrinnae's silica gel primer. It's practically like airbrush in a jar!
I am already on my 3rd jar of this. I apply this using Franchesca's method (she is the owner of awG):
Press on face with a large face puff. Let set for a few minutes, then brush off excess.
I previously used all of Everyday Minerals' setting powders but those are becoming sorely neglected on my shelf now, since discovering awG's SSP.

This is a cheap alternative to the MUFE HD silica powder. It, like MUFE, is all silica. I have not used the MUFE version, but I don't think I need to. The effects silica powder gives are amazing. Oil control, makeup setting with absolutely no cakiness, and skin that feels like velvet. I like to press it into my skin with a sponge to get a nice tight set. Fluffy brushes tend to make the powder fly, and make me feel like I'm just swiping away all my careful blending. The packaging/presentation of the product could be better. So much powder comes out of the sifter so fast. I would like a pressed version of this powder. It is so fine it would likely be impossible to press, but if it could happen, a cake form would be less wasteful and easier to work with. The company also sells 3 or so different tinted versions of this, so anyone who gets a strange cast from white silica could give a colored version a try. I had fast shipping and no problems with my Adorned With Grace order. They have some great vegan brushes too:D
