Bought it coz of the good reviews here. Unfortunately, it doesn't really do much for me. No oil control power at all. It does make me look more matte but that's it. For $30+ there are better powders out there.

UPDATE 12-11-2015After using this for a few months and almost running out, I am getting ready to re-purchase again! I love this stuff, it's AMAZING. It makes my skin look so nice and airbrushed. No acne, no weird skin problems, and most of all, a little goes a long way. YAY for finding a HG powder!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Bought this stuff after deciding to go more natural and cruelty free with my makeup. I have only had it for a couple of weeks, but so far no issues, it didn't break me out which is a big bonus. I love the consistency when it goes on your face, very true to name because it does feel like silk. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it's matte, I absolutely hate shimmery powders/bronzers. I use a smaller EcoTools powder brush to apply this and I really like it. I'll update again in a month or two for a better review :)

This makes my skin look darker. It has no brightening effect and i don't know if this is helping me with my acne prone skin. I only bought it as i thought its natural formula would be gentler.. But im not sure

Great sheer-light buildable coverage pressed powder. I am very fair with peachy/neutral undertones and "Porcelain" fits me well. Looks very natural; goes on really creamy matte. Foolproof powder and flawless whether you apply it with a powder brush or a sponge. Does not cake, settle into pores, accentuate dry skin/wrinkles or cause breakouts. Lasts all day, even after a hike/yoga/workout. I put Everyday Minerals "Finishing Dust" setting powder over it for extra staying power; it prolongs it throughout the day/night. I have a oily T-zone and only had to touch up my nose a couple times in hot/humid weather. The only con is that it tends to wash out your complexion and may be too matte/flat (unless that's what you prefer). At the moment I prefer Everyday Minerals semi-matte foundation for natural dewy/glowing coverage.

I bought this at the Cosmetics Store at an outlet mall, I dont think I would have paid full price ($27) for it, however, i do love it. It works nicely to set foundation and gives me a polished glow. It lasts pretty well through out the day. I have this in Amaretto 20. I use it over tinted moisturizer. If i use it over a heaver foundation i find it looks & feels like i have too much make up on. It does not cake, but it just looks like too much make up.

I tried Silk Screen due to the wonderful reviews here on MUA. I know I was expecting it to be my HG. I think I'm going to try a few different powder foundations, as this product might be better used strictly to set one's foundation. The texture and non-comedogenic formulation are great, I think it has SPF in it, but the color made my skin look older, grey and my smile lines harsh. (I wore it in Tender). Although its sleekness and light weight are attractive, I also wish this compact were a little sturdier. I dropped both of my Origins powders at most three feet onto the floor of my dorm, and opened them to find the powder shattered each time. As a result, I recanted the powder into an old BE container, and I discovered it works much better for coverage when applied with a kabuki brush. Yet, trying to avoid loose powders since Dr. Oz scared me off of inhaling BE minerals into my lungs.Price: USD 26.50 at flagship store. Definitely will return to this if my forays into other top-rated powder foundations (Shiseido, etc. ) are unsuccessful.

FINALLY!!! I have been searching for the last year (since Clinique discontinued their Clarifying Powder Makeup) for a powder foundation that works with my very oily skin and I have found it in Silk Screen! Color matching was a bit tricky but I found an exact match with Camel and it makes my skin look wonderful! The best part is I only have to touch up 3 times a day compared to every 30 minutes with every other type of powder and/or foundation I have used. I cannot believe it controls my oil and shininess so well. It's a miracle. I hope others who feel betrayed about the discontinuation of Clarifying Powder Makeup by Clinique will find this powder foundation as helpful.

I have a love hate relationship with this powder... it's horrible if you apply on top of a regular moisturizer... like it starts caking up or something. This has never happened with my other powders or foundations... So i had to change my regular moisturizer to a moisturizer/primer type with a more matte finish. I tried applying this with their sponge but it enlarged my pores for some reason.. and i guess the best way to apply this is with a large fluffy brush. I also bought the origins powder brush with is really soft but i think i need a larger fluffier brush from maybe mac or something. Something less dense.... anyway this powder IS really silky if you apply it right... It was kind of hard to get a good match for my skin despite the fact that they have a large range of colors available. It gears more towards the pink undertone people... I have heavy yellow undertone but im like a NC25-NC30ish... It's worth a try because the powder is really cheap imo.. very good quality for the price. I guess I just have to wait and see if it does miracles if I buy a large mac powder brush to use with this. Will update later!! :)

I have been using this powder for the last 3 months, and so far I really like it. I love the finish, it doesn't look cakey or powdery its very smooth. Similiar to how MAC Natural finish looks right after I apply it, really nice and smooth except it is not shimmery. I have been reading reviews of the color Sesame and Caramel Mousse for skintones NC40ish which is strange because both these shades match me and I am NC30. I do use a huge fluffy brush and it looks very natural on me. I was originally matched to Camel but it had too much of a pink tone for my skin, and Sesame is perfect for my olive skin. I would definitely give this a try if you are looking for a powder with medium coverage. Price is very reasonable for me since it lasts so long and quality is really great.

I purchased this as a touch up powder/sheer finishing powder for daily use. Overall I'm very happy with the product. The powder is unbelievably soft, which really wowed me, and a little goes a long way. To get a sheer finish, I have to be very light handed, otherwise I'll end up with a medium coverage. This is especially true if you use the included sponge (I use a face brush, better control). So far I've had no issues with caking. In terms of oil control, the powder holds up better than most, but is no holy grail for me. I still need to use a primer, which is fine. I personally prefer is a more luminous finish, while this powder is definitely matte.I would consider re-buying this product in the future, though I expect the compact I have will last for a long time.
