I bought a sample of this along with the perfecting powder and japanese silk powder, and I was in awe by how these powders worked along with my face. The foundation itself didn't cover enough for my taste, so I will order the full cover version the next time, but this was just gorgeous. The powder itself is so finely milled, and even if it's scary white in the jar it looks invisible and amazingly skin like on the face. It just makes the pores disappear and makes your skin feel so soft, without causing breakouts. You'll end up looking like you, only with more even skin.
The first ingredient is mica, which is kind off controversial in the mineral foundation world. But in my opinion, how can you make mineral foundation without this...? It has light reflecting and skin perfecting properties, which makes both silk naturals and mineral hygienics known for the "lit up within" effect. It can make some people break out, but it is so much better than bismuth, which I'm highly allergic to. The other ingredient is magnesium myrsistate, which has a "slippery" effect, making the powder pleasant to work with and easier to buff into the skin. It is safe to use for most people, and is not an ingredient that makes me go "obs, obs, obs!". The other ingredient is crushed pearl powder, used for ages in china as an anti inflammatory and detox agent for the skin. The other ingredients are zinc oxide (covering effect, not harmfull for the skin) and palmitate (absorbing effect on the skin, anti-age, moisturizing), rose petals (soothing properties) and allantoin (anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing), the last ingredient is silica, which has a oil absorbing, skin perfecting and light reflecting effect. I'm glad they don't have this as a key ingredient, because if it was, you would end up looking white on pictures with this, even if it's invisible on. Just google makeup forever HD powder and Nicole Kidman, and you'll see why... :P
All in all I'm VERY impressed with silk naturals and it's luxurious ingredients that are so rare in the mineral makeup world. Although the shipping was kind of expensive to Norway, the products itself are way too cheap compared to the quality and the great customer service. I'm glad it's not over hyped, and that the web site looks like crap... If celebrities and people all over the world knew about this, then we would all have a moroccanoil moment, and have to suffer from a high jump in price. I will definitely re-purchase, and continue to test these products. Because I'm all in all just amazingly impressed. Good job, Karen Stark. You have made me very happy!

I LOVE this stuff. I first tried out this product when my skin was purging and breaking out. It was sore, dull, and flaky from tretinoin. This product helped my skin calmed down a lot.
That was a long time ago. I finally bought the full size a couple of months ago. If I wear it at night, it leaves my skin so soft and looks bright in the morning. Wearing it as a setting powder, it acts like an HD powder, diffusing all the imperfections and makes my face glow. It tends to leave a whitish cast at first (NC30), but after it melds with your facial natural oil, it looks perfect.
t helped me a lot when I went back to my hometown for a short vacation. It was super hot and humid all the time, and my face keeps looking slick and sticky. A dust of this was all it takes to make my skin looks gorgeous. My skin is nowhere near perfect, but it looked a gazillion times better than may Chanel-powder-flashing-friend when we hung out together. ;p
I just wish that the jar has a rotating sifter. It would be perfect.
