This powder is not an exact dupe for the MUFE Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder. But, if your’re looking for a cheaper silica based powder, or a more affordable HD powder than this one is definitely cool to try for sure. It is not as finely milled as the MUFE one, as the MUFE ones does contains a tiny bit more ingredients in it then just silica. Also, the MUFE one gives off more of a totally translucent finish (unless you go in really heavy with it, which is totally not recommended). It does have that signature HD powder smell, because of it’s high silica content, which some people find such to be bearable, and some others may find that they don’t personally care for such. Now, with this powder the packaging is definitely bulky, so it will take up extra space than most powders, if carried in ones purse while on the go. It does come with a puff applicator inside. However, it is not my preferred method of application, as I actually use a brush for application instead. It is very important that you don’t be very heavy handed when applying this powder to your face. I also don’t recommend baking with this powder, as there are powders out there that are a better option to do such with. With silica based powders, less is more, however, if you are left looking very ashy after application that means you've definitely used way too much. This product will leave a translucent finish if used sparingly. And, it does a really great job with keeping my makeup in tact basically all day until I remove it at night. However it doesn’t have that same exact type of blurting effect to my face that I get with the MUFE. I do currently own 3 containers of that powder (2 minis and1 large size). It is the best powder I’ve ever used on my face, period. And, I will forever be a devotee of such for as long as I live, but when I want to use a drugstore powder, I do. Because, just like any makeup lover, we do switch up things.
I do live in an area where it is hot and humid almost all year round, and this powder is able to stand up to such very well. Also, I would like to add that if you are someone who has issues with foundations oxidizing on you quite a lot (when your face starts sweating or when your face gets oily), I'd highly recommend ditching those colored finishing powders and using a colorless, translucent setting or finishing powder instead. And, it will put an end to such oxidation issues completely.
