I originally bought this a couple of years ago and ended up returning it to sephora because it just didn't sit well on my skin. Was browsing the website and saw it again in a cute little container, 15 bucks hell why not try it again. I've found the secret to this stuff is to use a teeny amount and then buff it throughly into your skin, it makes you look absolutely flawless!! If I ever run out of this I will definitely buy it again.

MUFE hd powder is a good product. But a little on the pricey..If you looking for a powder like this one.there is a dupe. Try Face of Australia ready set go finishing powder which is a very similar product. It's a very fine translusent powder which can make a foundation lasts longer and very cheap. i cant find any difference..i really recommend it..ps. the powder only get within australia.

I use this in conjuction with the MUFE HD liquid foundation. I think this is a really nice product. I have been using MAC for a few years but never found a foundation and loose powder that I was really happy with. I am not a huge fan of powder foundations becuase after a while they appear cakey and "made up". I like a more natural finish during the workday. Anyhoo, I really like the texture of the product. The silicon makes my face feel ultra smooth. They also make large pores appear smaller. I have two really huge pores that I noticed a few months ago that drive me nuts. I have had issues in the past finding products that make them appear smaller. This really does help reduce the appearance of them. I wish it would "magically" erase them, but this is close enough. I like the product. It's expensive and if you can check out the travel size which is on sale incidentally for $15 this week at sephora (yay!) I think its worth the money and a little goes a long way. I have to say that this is a quality product. Check it out!

I absolutely LOVE this powder. I use this to set my MUFE HD foundation or Nars sheer glow foundation and it gives me that airbrushed/natural look without feeling too heavy or overdone. One thing I hate about this is the packaging. No matter how careful I am, every time I screw open the top, powder goes flying everywhere. MUFE really need to think of a new packaging plan for this product. But overall, I love it! It's so lightweight sometimes I can't even tell I'm wearing foundation. I bought the smaller size ($15) from Sephora, and have been using it religiously since November 2010, and I still have about 85% of powder left. This product will last forever!

I love this loose powder. It is so finely milled that it disappears into my skin. After I use my sunscreen, and a bit of foundation around my nose and under my eyes, I buff this into my skin. It makes my skin look perfect.
I don't like to wear a lot of foundation so this powder saves me- it evens me out. I think it is a little expensive, so I purchased the smaller jar to try it out. So far it has lasted me a few months already after using it everyday. I think it will last me into the fall, a little shake goes a long way. I will buy the large jar when the smaller one is finished.

When I purchased this at Sephora (along with the HD foundation) the gal showed me the correct amount to apply for my whole face, and I'm really glad she did because I would have used WAY too much. It's not like mineral veil where you can never apply too much, you are only supposed to use a tiny little sprinkle. She said that the full size, applied correctly, would last me about a year and a half to 2 years.

If I had to quantify "a tiny sprinkle" it would be a circle the diameter of a pencil eraser, or 6-8 dots of a Sharpie pen.

I use it on my expanded t-zone, forehead, nose, chin, and pore area between my nose and under my eyes. I also go over my neck and decollete with whatever is left on the brush and it just creates a finished smoothness.

This product is so hyped-up its crazy, that's why I bought it. I was so excited to try it thinking it was gonna be flawless, amazing, and make me look like an angel 0:( I mean, it was one of the best-selling loose powders at sephora (and surprisingly still is) I expected way too much obviously because it claims way too much. Its not all its cracked up to be, all in all its not horrible, not the worst powder i've tried don't get me wrong, just nothing that great is all. When I first tried this powder I was like ooh this is kinda nice I guess but I wasn't blown away, I continued to use it for a year thinking this was as good as its gonna get as far as loose powders go but have been yurning for better lately.

FINISH:
Decent, but MOST of the time I feel like it makes my skin look powdery, dry, & dull, clings onto the wrong places & accentuates any lines or wrinkles you may have (don't really see too much blurring), and definitely leaves a white cast (no I don't over apply it either) It does feel pretty nice on the skin though. But the most irritating, it made the inside of my nose dried up & it hurt, I don't know how it gets there, I don't sniff it I swear!

LASTING POWER:
Used to think it was good but now that I think about it, its not that long lasting. It doesn't really control oil that well because i'll get oily 2 hours later. Idk my makeup just doesn't look the best when I used it.

Overall, don't buy it just because of all the hype, only if you're really sure or just curious, I suggest you sample it or try it out first. My opinion, the It Cosmetics HD powder is superior to this everything this should've been and is a true HD powder. I love MUFE's stuff but this is just not that great, thank baby jesus I only got the $15 jar!

Not sure about this one yet. It makes my skin feel a bit itchy - it does seem to hold concealer in place but I'm not sure it's HG level - I'd like to find something more silky and oil-absorbing in the future. Unfortunately, my Sephora was only selling this in full size or with a "kit" that included stuff I didn't want. I really hope I didn't waste $34 bucks on this. I will give it more time before pulling the plug, though. I also had to buy a kabuki brush to use with it, so double wastage if it doesn't do the trick :(

I'm starting to really dig this stuff. At first I think I was apply too much of the powder. I bought it for $15 at Sephora for the smaller, trial sized container. The packaging IMHO is pretty great. The sifter holes are really tiny, so it doesn't pour out like most loose powder containers. I use it as a finishing powder &honestly looks awesome. For some reason itiminimizes pores and my blemishes. I use it on my entire face with my bamboo powder brush from EM. I then take a fluffly eyeshadow brush and dust it over my eyeshadow and around my eyes. I would definitely buy this again. It's a bit pricey to me, but this tiny container has lasted 3 months and I still have some left.

Well aside from the fact that my skin reacted horribly to this (itchy teeny blisters wherever I apply it), I find the performance lacking. It doesn't keep oil at bay, you can totally tell it is white on the skin, and it doesn't make me look airbrushed. I am giving 2 lippies because it works GREAT to set concealer...kind of like powderflage but not quite as silky/fine. Luckily, I can use this under my eye area without reaction so I use it as a spare to my powderflage.
