|Pure Silk Powder and Diamond Perfect Finishing Powder|
Both of these powders come packaged in a standard plastic screw top jar but on the inside there is a cool twist top sifter that stops the powder from going all over the place while you are traveling or if you throw the powder into your makeup bag. They also came nicely packaged with a Werthers Hard Candy. Nice touch Purely Cosmetics!

According to the website:
Silk powder has dual properties of being able to absorb or release moisture as temperature and humidity changes, while also being able to absorb excess oils, making it ideal for both dry and oily skin types. Silk powder has 18 amino acids essential to the human body, reflects UV rays to aid in preventing sun damage, and it's light reflecting properties are the closest to natural skin reflection. Our ultrafine, pure silk powder will leave your face feeling silky smooth. It is colorless, and due to it's reflecting properties, will leave a more matte finish than our traditional foundation alone. Works well as a primer, setting or finishing powder.
|The very minimal ingredients list for both products|
It is amazing how your pores disappear after applying this to your skin. It even states on Purely Cosmetics website that you can use this as a primer, setting or finishing powder. You can watch this Wayne Goss video that explains it a little better but you should definitely try it if your makeup tends to fade or you are on the oily side.
Next up, Diamond Perfect Finishing Powder-this ish is just voodoo magic. Again minimal ingredients. The idea behind this powder is that the crushed up diamonds create this blue cast to the skin (not visible to the eye) that creates an optical diffusion illusion. This powder is like having a photo filter for your face. It is seriously amazing and unlike any powder I have ever used. It feels creamy and makes your skin feel ridiculously soft. It's like whipped cream and kitten's fur got together and had a powder baby. Creamy soft.
It blurs any imperfections and makes your makeup look very polished. This works beautifully in photographs. According to the website it has almost 1 carat of diamonds in every jar. Also, this does not contain shimmer as the name may lead you to believe. It just makes you look like you are glowing. It is definitely a must have on my list.
|I wish you could feel how absolutely creamy the texture of this powder is.|
So that's my love letter to Purely Cosmetics, I highly recommend both of these products. You can't go wrong with either one. And you can't go wrong with hitting one of the buttons below!
