Best pressed powder
Which one is the best pressed powder in your opinion? I only use it over the T-zone because it can get just a little bit oily. What do you recommend?

Of all the pressed powders I've tried - and I've tried plenty - Prada is the best by far

If you're talking "regular" powder, I say Chanel.

If you mean combination powder+foundation with extras, I don't know...

That's a good question...I honestly don't know. I got mine from a local department store.

t. leclerc is my fav. its made of rice powder so it doesn't clog pores, it has shades light enough to match my skin, and it comes it gorgeous silver compacts with french writing on them. its expensive, but worth it. i got mine at henri bendel.

I like shiseido...it has a three shade palette that mixes together to give a nice pale shade. Doesn't clog the pores either....I don't wear foundation, I just use this over concealer and I'm good to go.

Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder is my favorite. It is nice for little touch ups throughout the day on my combonation skin. The coverage is moderate and it does a great job at controlling shine.

Dior Snow Ultra-Brightening Whitening Powder Foundation is the best!
It can slow down the appearance of brown spots and pigment irregularities, and it's very soft, non-oily. The point is the veil will stay matte and natural-looking.

I'll have to stick with my MAC on this one.

I use MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder, and it leaves me with a matte complexion all day, no matter how hot it is.
