I use MAC select sheer pressed powder...in the same shade as my select sheer foundation. Very natural finish.

I was beset upon by makeup salesladies in Saks on Monday night... 180 dollars later I walked out with Cle de Peau - concealer, and pressed powder foundation in a compact. it's soooooooooo silky. will report back with results, it looked and felt fab in the store though.

I use neutrogena.. I think their foundations/powders are the only drugstore ones that are yellow toned enough for asian skin.

I like Givenchy's powder foundation. It doesn't add a layer to my foundation, just mattifies it,besides it being very finely-milled with oil-controlling property.

so I ordered the Prada powder from Saks (thanks Hipkitten) and shipped it to my friend in the states. When she landed in Stockholm a couple of days later one of her three bags were missing and OF COURSE my powder was in that bag. ARGH!!! Luckily she got the bag back just the other day and I'm seeing her tomorrow so I will FINALLY get my Prada powder... YAY! Will report back..

(plus I heard it comes in a leather case, is that true?)

Yay! I hope you love it! Make sure you let us know!
And yes, it comes with this cute pink leather case

OMG I absolutely love it. Best powder ever and you don't have to use that much either. It blends in great with my skin and gives great coverage. Worth every penny! And I'm in love with the pink leather case.

I know it's not really a "pressed powder" but if you're looking to stay matte, I've always liked Benefit's Dr. Feelgood. It's a clear balm and it doesn't add to any powder bulk or clog pores

^You'd be better off with a concealer.

i already have concealer and foundation but i lately dont know why but i dont like wearing liquid stuff and i dont need that much coverage

in the meantime im using a Two Faced limited edition powder(that they dont sell no mo) right now but its in this huge box set, it would be such a hassle to carry around for a tiny sliver of powder!
