I had been intrigued by Makeup Forever's HD Microfinish Powder for awhile, but when I went into Sephora to check it out about a month ago, the sales lady who was helping me said "it does nothing, to be honest." I didn't take her too seriously because a. she had to ask someone else what it was, and b. her makeup looked awful. On a side note--how can you work at a makeup store and wear blotchy turquoise eyeshadow with bright red lips and the wrong color foundation? Anyway, I didn't buy it then but went home and did some research of my own. The majority of the reviews I read about the HD Powder were good. Back I went to Sephora and purchased the small container to see if I liked it. I don't only like it, I LOVE this stuff. It is A-MA-ZING. First of all, the HD Powder sets your foundation and it does not move all day. I even took a nap with it on and my makeup didn't move. Secondly, it keeps oily-ness under control without drying the skin. I have combination skin and the powder doesn't dry out my dryer areas, and it keeps my oily areas under control with no shine. Thirdly, it disguises my pores. They are invisible once I put it on. It seriously gives the skin a flawless finish. My one gripe is that it's really messy.
