I prefer this to MUFE HD powder, but since it's never in stock I have had to go back to the MUFE. The De-Slick is much more portable and the cheap powder applicator it comes with actually works very well. I use very finicky pro airbrush makeup and De-Slick is the ONLY thing that has made my foundation look even more flawless. UD "Razor Sharp" on the other hand only looks horribly cakey (no matter what they tell you at the counter). If you can't get your hands on De-Slick, then Definitely try MUFE.
Be Aware that BOTH this and MUFE will glow when hit with a camera flash. If you're pale like me then you turn into a ghost with eyes and lips but not many other details. I don't mind since I'm terrible pale anyway. I imagine if you hit this with some bronzer it would help control that problem, just be aware of it and plan accordingly.
Hope this helped, Good luck!

i've been putting this on before blush & it hasn't clogged my pores. if you put it on over makeup it will make the applicator pad dirty, which i found the first day i got it - i put it on over the powder i was already wearing. i was able to clean it but since then have always put it on first. if i need more throughout the day i avoid my cheeks so i will not get blush on it.

I apply this at the very end of everything, after blush and foundation and bronzer and all of that. It's the last thing I do, to set everything

I apply after blush to set, and I haven't had any problems with pore-clogging even with multiple applications throughout the day.

i use moisturizer, sunscreen, a primer, and this product. no foundation at all, and i have not had an issue with clogged pores.
as far as how it compares to the microfinish powder, i do not know. i'm not trying any other product to solve my oily skin problem because this works so well.

This powder is I think intended to be used as a setting powder with oil-control properties, so I would definitely use it over blush to keep your blush intact. This powder shouldn't clog your pores - this powder actually ABSORBS oil rather than just covering it up, so with this powder you won't have any oil sitting on top of your skin and clogging your pores. :)
In my experience, MUFE's Microfinish powder is great for really evening out my complexion, blurring fine lines and making my pores look significantly smaller, but it doesn't provide a ton of oil control. UD's De-Slick powder doesn't really blur fine lines or make my pores look smaller, but it keeps my skin really matte while also making it look brighter (it's more of a lavender color versus a white, which makes skin look brighter and less pasty). I would say if you have a LOT of trouble with oil control give this a try, but if oil control isn't your main concern, MUFE's powder will do just fine. :)
