Silk Naturals Untinted Oil Control Blur Finishing Powder Video Review

Hi everyone! I did a quick little video review on Silk Naturals Oil Control Blur Finishing Powder. This product is comparable to the Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder.

There’s a written review to go along with this, too.

The Website Says:
Oil Control Blur is made with lots and lots of silica to absorb oil, hide pores, and give your skin a long lasting matte finish. Silica by itself is good, but by adding a bit of calcium carbonate, and magnesium myrsistate (one of the active ingredients in Milk of Magnesia)- it helps to keep your colors looking fresh, resist oils and perspiration, and gives it an even longer lasting soft focus finish.

It comes in:
Untinted oil control blur finishing powder
Tinted oil control blur finishing powder
Untinted blur finishing powder
Tinted blur finishing powder

Silica-blurs lines, absorbs oils
Magnesium Myrsistate Mica- blurs lines, helps makeup colors stay true by resisting perspiration and oil.
Silk Powder- draws moisture from the air, and gives a dewy finish

$11.95 for a 30 gram jar, 1 tablespoon bag refill is $10.95, $1.25 for a sample

Does it live up to its claims?

Would I purchase again?

Now, I’ve used both products and I think the MUFE HD powder is awesome. That said, I really love the Silk Naturals finishing powder. I know you’ve seen me using it a ton in my blog. The MUFE is .35 oz for $32. So by price comparison, you get a lot more of the Silk Naturals product for the price. Additionally I think it is equally as good, if not better, when it comes down to product performance on my skin.

I will definitely purchase another Blur powder from Silk Naturals. Right now, I’m mixing this one in with the illuminating powder in Flattery. I think they both look great on my skin.

Do you like blur finishing powders? What’s your favorite finishing powder?

      I think it would have been helpful to see you apply the powder, but thanks for sharing. I love silica-based finishing powders and this seems like a must-try!

        I’m wearing the powder in the video :) I can try to make a video of me applying it soon. This is definitely a must try in my book!

      Hi Phyrra!

      How will you compare this to Fyrinnae’s Fluff?

      • Phyrra

        I don’t think I own fluff, or if I do, I haven’t used it in such a long time. But I’ve used the MUFE HD microfinish powder and this one back to back and I prefer this one ;) (though both are good products).

          Awe, I guess they don’t carry it anymore. I don’t see it on their site.

            By it, I mean the lip poison :P left that part out.

      I recently bought a finishing powder from Lotus cosmetics which I love & has amazing ingredients. A huge jar for only $11 on My Habit. Great stuff. Blurs pores like crazy & fights shine like I’ve never seen. I was really disappointed with MUF’s powder. I thought it was way overhyped for what it is > nothing but silica. I’ve got a massive bag of calcium carbonate, tons of silk powder. as well as the m.m. I add them all to every one of my self-made powders. Other than the Lotus powder, I haven’t bought any finishing powder in well over 2 1/2 years. And that one I only bought because it had things like goldenseal extract & other plant extracts in it. They’re so easy & cheap to put tougher that it doesn’t make sense for me to buy them at all.

        You may like this one then because I feel like it is NOT hyped. It’s awesome :)
