What is the difference between their veena silk powder and veena veil finishing powder? Which would be best the remove the oily shine?
Also, I can't seem to find the 'clear radiance' people have been mentioning; what is it?

oh, and how does this compare to mary's products? I'm not quite sure what the difference between the paste and the primer? Which would help smooth out my pores/imperfections before makeup?

Ignore the last post, did some searching and someone on the forum said:
"The paste works as a treatment and primer and then the actual primer can be used for both before and after foundation. If I need something later in the day to take away the oilies, I use the primer and it works really well."

Also gave in and orderded Mary's silken pearl primer in the sweet orange (i love citrus!)

The finishing powder Clear Radiance has had the name changed to Soft Radiance. Same formula; Kim had changed the names of some products instead of using names that were similar to another company.

The Silk powder is a rather new finishing powder. I have not tried it yet. I do have Clear Radiance (bought during the major clearance sale of old packaging) and really like it. Nice glow but not glitterly/sparkly. I am quite fair with sensitive oily skin. I am 46. I like Kim's Veena Velvet foundation forumla.

oooh! I saw the soft radiance, but couldn't find the 'clear radiance' people had been mentioning and the drop down menu had both so I thought they were different things. Thanks for the clarification!

I also emailed them asking the difference, and here is what Kathy said:

"Hi Hanna,


Pure Silk Finishing Powder

Do you need a two-in-one powder that can be used as both a priming powder and finishing powder? Then you must try our Pure Silk. It contains 100% silk powder and does such a great job drawing excess oil away from the skin that facial shine becomes a thing of the past causing you to need less touch ups throughout the day!

Veena Veil Finishing Powder

Does your oily skin prevent you from experiencing a soft, fresh look? Are you ready to experience a shine-free look? Our Veena Veil locks in moisture, thus reducing the appearance of oily skin.




I would personally suggest the Veena Silk Veil! That is a combination of both powders in one. I have very oily skin and I was using the Veena Veil but when Kim created this VSV I was in love! Again, it is the best of both powders together in one. It has a wonderful feeling on the skin. I think it is the best for oily skin. Hope this helps and please let me know what you think when you receive your Try Me Kit. Have a great weekend.


Kathy : ) "
