Like Browneyes, I don't find much difference between this and MUFE's - both are good setting powders.

I found both to perform about the same. The MUF translucent does have slightly more color, but both end up translucent once applied. Biggest difference is size. MUF's is .35 oz for $26, but with Shiseido you get .63 oz, which is .28 oz. more for $9. Neither will dry out your skin and reason I like both (For reference I have dry skin).

I personally think the sponge works better than a brush since this is so finely milled.

I suggest using a BIG soft complexion brush. This will allow it to be spread evenly and very lightly since you don't need that much to cover your face. The powder is VERY fine!

Yes! The MUFE powder is just okay to me, seems chalky, cakes and doesn't control oil or shine. This is my favorite loose powder over all others as well, keeps oil down, gives my skin a nice glow and helps finish my makeup. Highly recommend

Question
Is this a mineral powder?
I'M looking for a loose powder which can work with all foudations produced by different brands. But I'm oily skin so I just wonder wether it is a mineral one or not. Sb said mineral powder is more suitable for dry skin. And I also saw sb said it is the last thing we should apply on the face. So could'nt I use it just after foundation?

I have oily skin and I use this and it works fantastically at controlling oil, particularly compared to others like Nars.

Take a look at the ingredient list (click on the tab on the main page for this product) and you will see a LOT of ingredients that don't sound "mineral-ish". I have this powder and love it but the ingredients are not a big issue for me. Check them out and see if they're what you're looking for or if the presence of "cones" and chemical sounding ingredients is off-putting to you.

dancingdream99 - The ingredients Sephora has listed appear to be for a shampoo or maybe conditioner. ("Frizz"?? A face powder to control frizz?) The ingredients for the powder are posted under another question above.

For oily-skin, Shiseido wins hands down. I find Shiseido slightly more matte as well, but overall I like it more than Nars.

Nars is better without a question. I tried Shiseido when I ran out of NARS, and I'm very disappointed.

Question
Is this the same as their Makeup Enriched Loose Powder?
I used to buy and use Shiseido The Makeup Enriched Loose Powder, WHICH I LOVED, but looked for it here and it says Sephora no longer sells it. I was wondering if Shiseido discontinued that powder and are replacing it with this one ... has anyone used both and can compare them? They look similar...

This should be the last thing you put on your face, after foundation and powder. This stuff will make your foundation perform better and is perfect for your t-zone, I use it on my oily skin all the time.

I think the best "remedy" for turkey neck is probably a pretty scarf! Seriously, I don't think anything is going to pull in that loose skin but I really like the neck cream from Clarins (Advanced Extra Firming) - I don't have turkey neck but it really makes a difference in the feel and texture of the skin on my neck and decolletage.
