New Product Alert: Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder

So I've kinda fallen in love with this Make Up For Ever Microfinish Powder ($30). I ran across it yesterday at Sephora and was skeptical of the High Definition name. "Harrumph," I harrumphed. "This is just going to be a big ol' nothing. Harrumph!"

But then I tapped a little bit in my hand, and what do you know? It's brilliant! The idea is that the translucent powder smooths out imperfections in skin and helps to set foundation. And it does, but the more impressive thing is that it makes your skin feel like silk. After putting a little on the back of my left hand, it was so soft that I kept stroking my hand while meandering through Sephora. Between the hand-petting and the humming of Billy Squier, I probably seemed certifiably cuckoo.

On the face, it softens the appearance of fine lines and discolorations, which is always a plus. Before I get too far in my praise, I should add that there isn't anything magical about this product; it's just silica powder, versions of which you can buy for less money at cosmetic-supply websites. I haven't tried that route, so I'm not sure if the quality is as high. But for now, check out the Make Up For Ever version. Then don't blame me if you can't stop touching your skin.
