Good to know smile.gif I've used Meow's primer only a couple of times now, no problems as of yet but I just wanted to see if anyone had any reactions I should be aware of.

 

Thanks for your responses!

I'd recommend both The Conservatorie and TKB for pure silk powder at $6 for 1 oz. I'm mixing yellows and reds to color them for finising powder and blush.

I love silk powder. I have sensitive skin, and sometimes I have a bad reaction to certain ingredients in makeup products. Silk dust will actually sooth my skin. I love it!

I've never had nor seen anyone that has had a reaction to silk powder. I have seen mineral makeup that used silk which was not "superfine", and it caused clumping of the minerals and buffing issues.

I had a sample of Lumiere's Sheer Silk that I was using, but I noticed some irritation so I stopped using it. I'm not sure if it really was the silk that was causing the problem or not, so maybe I just need to give it another try.

Can silk powder be used as a primer if you have acne or oily skin?? I've heard mixed reviews about that.

rejectstar,

Lumiere's Pure Silk is 100% silk powder (as stated on their website) but their Veena Silk has other ingredients in them (ingredent list: avena sativa, silk powder, mica, oryza sativa, rosemary extract oil, iron oxide) like oat powder. You maybe getting irritation from one of the other ingredients in the Veena Silk.

 

sgoofi,

I use silk powder as a primer, it doesn't make my acne any worse, in terms of oil control, silk powder is not as effective as kaolin clay. That's probably why the reviews are mixed.

Silica (I like Ronaspheres) is an excellent primer. Makes your pores disappear and skin feel silky smooth. I think it's good for oily skin also.

Hi Hoozey,

I'm trying to put an order on TKB, unfortunately its server seems to stop working after I've put silk powder, silica microsphere and some beautiful micas in the cart... frown.gif

 

I'm a bit torn between Ronasphere and Silica microsphere though. Maybe I should buy both and compare?

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
