I hope everyone has had a good week! Today I am going to review the Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder. I know there is probably about million reviews on this product already but I couldn't help myself so I'm writing one anyways. I never would've tried this product if Sephora didn't place those cute little stand with all the mini products right by the check out. I honestly can't help myself when it comes to cute mini products! I saw the HD Powder and remembered reading good reviews on it so I figured I'd give it a try. I have 0.17 oz one which was $16.
My absolute favorite thing about this powder is how it feels on your skin. I know such a weird favorite thing but it honestly makes your skin feel baby smooth and almost pearly (can you face feel pearly? Well mine does!) It has a matte finish but it isn't the type of matte finish that looks cake. It allows your face to look natural. Sometimes I use it all over my face but most of the time I use it in my "T" area. I love for underneath the eyes because it makes sure that my concealer doesn't crease. It also does an amazing job control shine. You have to make sure you blend it in really well because if you don't it can make your skin appear a little white. I use it with Real Techniques Setting Brush and it works amazingly. I use this brush because this container sucks butt. It is too small to fit in a kabuki brush and the one time I tried to use a kabuki brush I got powder everywhere. The setting brush does a great job blending it in and it fits perfectly into the container.
Overall, I think this is a great high end powder. I have heard of people who have had this little container last up to two years so it is definitely worth the price tag!
